Stooge news: New money [a joke] and a ban on swimming pools [no joke]

In stooge news, the government today announced a new form of currency to help “monetize” the rabble and balance the private, government and external sectors.

As many of you may know – especially those travelling for spring break this week – the Federal government’s new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) rule mandating lifts for existing hotel swimming pools was supposed to go into effect today. Fortunately, the compliance deadline has been extended. The bad news is that the rule exists at all. Indeed, it may already be impacting Americans with and without disabilities. In particular, as one might expect, some hotels are thinking about shutting down their pools rather than pay the relatively high cost of complying with the rule (according to the article linked to above, that figure is between $3,000 and $6,000).

My mouth is watering just thinking about all the lawsuits I can file for handicapped people who drown or are decapitated using the handicapper swimming pool lift mandated by these new regs.  Ain't it great having your government run by trial lawyers???
