Class Warfare and Dwarf Tossing

Mr. Fish.

John Darkow, Columbia Daily Tribune, Missouri —
Meanwhile, the GOP introduced a bill to legalize dwarf tossing.

Really.

From  The Palm Beach Post

Rep. Ritch Workman, R-Melbourne, filed a bill this week to bring back “dwarf tossing,” the barbaric and dangerous barroom spectacle that was imported from Australia and thrived briefly in Florida before it was outlawed in 1989.

“I’m on a quest to seek and destroy unnecessary burdens on the freedom and liberties of people,” Workman said. “This is an example of Big Brother government.
“All that it does is prevent some dwarfs from getting jobs they would be happy to get,” Workman said. “In this economy, or any economy, why would we want to prevent people from getting gainful employment?”
     As Will Durst has been known to say, “You can’t make this stuff up.”
     Be seeing you.

    Florida State Rep. Ritch Workman of Melbourne wants to improve the local economic climate. With HB 4063, he could just do that – by delivering dwarf tossing back to pubs. Not everybody is pleased that an elected official would suggest an exercise considered demeaning in several circles. Their life is insecure with this kind of job. But I guess this is what they want, because they won’t get involved with this kind of work if they are not happy and satisfied. Right?

      No, they would do it because they are desperate for money, the same reason that women become prostitutes. A better solution would be to help them find meaningful work.
      Any bar that would promote this sort of thing has a sick mentality to begin with.
