Mexico does that, as well. I guess it is a job to be given for countries where the gap between rich and poor is wide.

It is illegal to bring a whale into the state of Oklahoma. In Omaha, it is illegal to burp or sneeze during a church service.

Illegal immigrants who crossed the Mexican border into the United States are allowed to stay in this country permanently if they want to. They can have babies and collect welfare. They don't have to speak English. In some states, they can even get driver's licenses and go to college.

How generous this country is.

I think it is a good idea.

Business store owners are strangely able to take anyone out permanently that is a customer with literally no justifiable reason. Never allowing them to return ever again. Police officers just strictly abide to these false principles. Essential to dramatically alter these delusional orders right into the legislative assembly. Why are cafes in New York City, and Seattle obnoxiously kicking anyone proper elite out? Wrongly traumatizing to treat innocent citizens as evil criminals when that is the polar opposite situation in reality. Only the owners are those negative terms, while the customers are just victims to those absurdities.

What if the elderly parents are horrible jerks?

Mine were wonderful, but I've heard some people talk about despising their parents for various reasons - many very good reasons too.


Here in Texas there was a law against spitting on the sidewalks, and also one against carrying wire cutters:
(spit would dry up and wind could potentially spread Tuberculosis germs)
(Wire cutter carrying ban resulted from the violent "Fence-Cutting War" of the old cowboy days in the latter half of the 19th century)

Some children (18-) are jerks too. Many parents wish they could get rid of them...

Hunting camels is prohibited.

Any misdemeanor committed while wearing a red mask is considered a felony.
There is a possible 25 years in prison for cutting down a cactus.

Donkeys cannot sleep in bathtubs.

A class 2 misdemeanor occurs if one places a mark upon a flag which is “likely to provoke physical retaliation”.

It is illegal to manufacture imitation cocaine.

When being attacked by a criminal or burglar, you may only protect yourself with the same weapon that the other person possesses.

It is unlawful to refuse a person a glass of water.

You may not have more than two dildos in a house.

These are a few odd laws in Arizona. I get the glass of water one, it could kill someone to refuse one in the summer. lol

I've never seen a camel here, except in a zoo.
