Political Fallout: Iowa Legislature 82nd General Assembly Declaration of Human Rights

Excerpted from this post at Political Fallout

In Iowa, the Legislators first came for the school-yard bully, and I did not speak up, because I was not a bully. Then they came for the paroled sex offenders, keeping them exiled to seedy motels 2000 feet from all tangible temptation, and I did not speak up, because I was not a sex offender. Then they came for people who dismember human corpses with the intent of concealing a crime, and I did not speak up, because I am not one who indulges in criminal acts with human corpses. Then they came for 16 and 17 year-old high school drop outs, and I did not speak, because I am not a 16 or 17 year-old drop out. Then they came for the smokers, banning them from public buildings, and I did not speak up, because I am a not a smoker.
