Can’t We All Just Agree? (A new blog series about Things We Can All Agree On, right?)

Hey America, can’t we all just agree that fake kids’ handwriting is stupid?    never fooled me with that dumbass backwards “R” and neither do you, every movie and TV show with a handwritten mother’s day card or sloppily crayoned lemonade stand sign.  How about this, art directors – when you want something to look like a child wrote it, use an actual kid.

Also, America, can’t we all just agree that it’s a waste of our tax dollars to use well-paid, highly skilled policemen and women to direct traffic when this same task could be easily accomplished by folks who work for minimum wage?  Every time I see a cop waving for someone to slow down by a road repair project, I wonder why our well-trained, gun-toting law enforcement officers aren’t doing something more important with their time?

Maybe we could even develop a new lower tier branch of public workers (hello, job creation!) known as Traffic Force 2000.  The 2000 doesn’t really mean anything, but it would make the job sound cooler than it really is.  And there could be cool uniforms, too.  And reflective silver sneakers, for safety.
