Re: ‘Just Go Away’


Andrew, adding to your list of activities that young people are allowed to do, according to the Nanny Left, but who should not be allowed to buy tobacco: While underage, obtain an abortion without parental consent, buy the morning-after pill, consent to sex at age 17 (in N.Y., lower elsewhere), and bring a legal action to be declared emancipated.

Also, once 18 — get tattooed, enter into a contract to buy a car, sue and be sued, have one’s body pierced, consent to surgery, etc., etc.,etc. Eighteen-year-old men and women are, well, men and women. Indeed, Bloomberg et al. should just go away.
