I was wondering the same thing.
We elect representatives, they recommend laws, everybody with an interest lobbies pro and con and a law is put forward, amended, passed.
So, where are we supposed to exercise caution?

I agree. I also suspect that many of the laws are made in an attempt to bring a higher level of public awareness to a problem/issue in order to get people to change their practices. Pretty sure when such laws are passed that most bureaucrats are well aware there isn't the man power to fully enforce many/most of the laws they pass or the ones already in place.

Sad truth is that you can do all sorts of advertising in various medias to bring attention to an issue/problem in an attempt to get people to change their ways but few pay attention or change their habits unless there is a consequence. It would seem that the threat of hitting people in their pocket book with a fine has proven over time to be the most highly effective means at getting peoples attention & to change their behaviour. Doesnt work for all but for the majority it sure seems to.

"All of the above " might be an appropriate reply.
We should be responsible for government and not just to it.
If we won't be citizens , we will be subjects.
So...whose ox deserves it? (Goring that is!... with or without an umlaut)

I heard that doctors are starting to think that smoking's not all that good for you.

My son has a sideline of selling framed ads out of old magazines on eBay. Some of the quickest selling are those from the 50's that included "Dr. Someone", white coat and all, advertising for which cigarette brand was the best one for your "T" zone etc.

Gotta say that there is some sense in having to tell some parents that it's not really their choice to endanger their children's health with 2nd hand smoke.

At 15, when I started my first job working in a service station, I had the task of cleaning the inside windows on all that days lube jobs. That disgusting, smelly, coating on the inside front window was enough to get anyone to never start smoking. BTW: By that time I had already quit, but that's another story.

Funny how so many people let the Government run their lives. Isn't the Government too big now? Be careful what you wish for people. I for one don't want the Government telling me what I can do or not do!

I meant for this to be a discussion on the existence of laws, not their advisability. We don't want to wander into political discussions here. There are plenty of other blogs where that can be done.

While there can be some debate about laws that are foolish, silly or reasonable it is not debatable that different places have different laws and enforce them differently.

I did some looking and most of what I found with google was either firearm related (hunters travel) or residency related. Some states can be very unaccepting of not having a legal residence if you full time in your RV. Irony is have a $20,0000 RV behind a $30,000 TV and being given a ticket for vagrancy.

In the past I would try to check on some things in advance, fishing, alcohol, traffic laws. Maybe firearms/hunting laws.

I added cigarettes because prices can have as much as $5 in taxes in some parts of the country, better to bring than to buy in some states, better to stock up in others.

More and more though it seems that there are really wide differences between different parts of the country. Both in what the law is and how it will be enforced. Would hate to have a vehicle confiscated because I was a bootlegger by virtue of having too much booze in the camper. Busted because I was having a cold beer by the campfire in violation of some county law.

At every point in life someone or something will be telling you what to do or how to behave. It's your choice whether you listen and act on their requests or demands

Suffice it then to conclude that everything is either taxed or against the law?
I was once charged with updating our village ordinance books...
I found out that it was against the law to bathe during daylight hours.

I stopped going to Canada when it started requiring a passport. No more beer runs to brewers retail for moi!

Liked it just not worth the hassle. Also I once left some bullets in the camper, after getting back I just figured I had committed a major crime from bringing them in and not accounting for them. Had they been discovered at the border I would have been in big trouble.

One solid disqualifier is a desire for the job!
