40,000 new laws take effect in 2014

(CNN) - It may have been the least productive year for Congress in history, at least in terms of passing laws – fewer than 60 of which made it through the House and Senate and were signed by President Barack Obama.

Across the country, however, state lawmakers were busy getting more than 40,000 bills passed, ones that tackle everything from drones to food stamp benefits.

In Illinois for example, teenagers will no longer get to use tanning beds without a doctor's note. If you live in Delaware, visit the shark fin buffet while you can, a new law will make it illegal to own, sale, or distribute the controversial delicacy. And in California, new laws take effect that will let students take part in school sports, or use bathrooms based on their gender identity, regardless of the gender noted in their birth certificates.

Legendary attorney, Harvard law professor, and author of "Taking the Stand" Alan Dershowitz joins "The Lead" to discuss some of the other fascinating – and controversial – new laws of 2014.

Aren't there that many in Obamacare alone?
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Just what I was thinking.
 
When the insane old coot Pelosi said, "we have to pass it to find out what is in it", she was lying. Here it is years later and still no one knows what is in it. For all we know, they could be adding to it and rewriting it over time. Who would know? Every week or so since it was 'passed', a new Obamacare law, rule, or tax, pops up that nobody knew about.
 
And it doesn't matter what is in it anyway, since Der Fuhrer rewrites it daily by 'royal fiat'. So what does it matter what any 'law' says?
 
2014 still has a lot of surprises for us all.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

I suspect they won't be enjoyable surprises, either. :thud:
