For those of you living in states where the nanny culture is not in control of your everyday life, here’s what’s going on. The Democrats in Connecticut’s House of Representatives have approved a bill that would attach warning labels to Internet dating services doing business in our state that will read:
“Never include your last name, electronic mail address, home address, telephone number, place of work or any other identifying information in your Internet profile or initial electronic mail messages. Stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for personal or financial information or attempts in any way to trick you into revealing it.”
“If you choose to have a face-to-face meeting with another member, always tell someone in your family or a friend where you are going and when you will return. Never agree to be picked up at your home. Always provide your own transportation to and from your date and meet in a public place with many people around.”
How about some more:
Never get drunk and take your clothes off in a secluded place with a stranger.
Never check in to a cheap hotel under the influence of powerful drugs with a stranger.
Never give a picture of yourself naked to a stranger. Oh wait. Didn’t a Washington politician do that already?
