After the ‘Fiscal Cliff’ fiasco, I’m a lot less trusting of our government. There…I’ve said it. These bozos waited until the very last SECOND to do something that they’ve known about for a very long time. Sure hope that ruined their New Year’s celebrations….just sayin’.

But somebody was doing something, because we have a host of new laws throughout our fair land…some of them more weird than others.

For instance: In Illinois you are now prohibited, if you are a motorcycle rider, from popping wheelies — an act that now carries a $1,000 fine. In Florida, drivers can once again flash their headlights to warn others of upcoming speed traps. In Kansas, residents of Wellington, population 8,100, are prohibited from owning more than four felines in a home — a law meant to clamp down on the growing cat population. OK…

In Louisiana, we have nearly 2 dozen new laws, including the shortening of Louisiana’s voting hours on Saturday election days, pushed as a way to reduce the workload for elderly poll workers. Polls will open at 7 a.m. on Saturday elections, instead of 6 a.m.

Check out some of the newer and weirder laws that are now on state books across the good ole USA…and Happy New Year, ya’ll!
