Just my opinion of course unless this is just meant to be another anti government rant thread.


Why has questioning the scope of Government, given the established constraints and limitations become "anit-government?"

Ridiculous call and just more revenue from struggling artists. I ll bet shes the spokesperson for the regulatory authority wannabes. In Australia we have whats called a blue card. If you work around kids you must have one it contains all the background checks etc.
Regulating a dying art with some governing body will be the death of it. Next they will be trying to tells the clowns what jokes are appropriate and what are not!!!
Enough with the regulations and people crying its for the protection of children to get these draconian laws passed.
I grew up in a family of 10 kids. Our parents taught us at a young age how to discern dodgy behavior from adults and it kept us safe. It wasn't some dush in an office collecting more tax for the right to do art.
Just like people calling for a register regulation body to be allowed to do planking.


Why is it that hollywood can turn something that was created for joy laughter and happiness int osomething creepy and dodgy for children?) Steven King you have a lot to answer for!!!!
Ok well Steven King is ok but I hope you get the point.

It's called a working with children check,if you do volunteer work ,like at a junior football club they are free,If you are a paid worker like a child care worker you must pay for it,

I really don't have a problem with it,but if the person hasn't been caught doing anything then nothing will show up,
but you can't always protect against the unknown,but you can protect against the known scum sucking should be dead pedo that is trying to volunteer at a junior sports club,

I'd say this "clown license" is more of a background check than a actual license,I'd rather have known child molesters kept away from children , but maybe that's just me ,

As for clowns i hate the bastard's , damn freaks.

Australia's most famous clown duo were Zig and Zag ,until

Child sex abuse scandal See also: Child sexual abuse In March 1999, Zig and Zag stood down from the Moomba festival after they had been announced as Moomba Monarchs. It was disclosed that, in 1994, at Heidelberg Magistrates' Court, Perry had "pleaded guilty to seven counts of unlawful indecent assault against his granddaughter", Debra Clark, which had occurred "from the age of 12, between 1979 and 1981, while she lived with her grandparents".[10] In 1999, other allegations of indecent assault of children also surfaced.[11] Clark revealed that she had been indecently assaulted, by Perry, during an interview on television current affairs show, Today Tonight just before Perry (as Zig) with McKenzie (as Zag), were due to be crowned.[12] The Moomba committee was devastated, and announced that there would be no replacement for the duo.[2][5] Subsequent festivals had no monarch until 2010 when Kate Ceberano and Molly Meldrum were announced as Queen and King of Moomba.[2][13]

Well, no, it really doesn't. It just means they know how to pediatry and have proven it so, with tests and diplomas.

maybe the people of the United States should stop looking for witches to torch, and deal with actual problems? Just a thought.

Yes, it does. With iatrogenocide (death by doctoring) being the third leading cause of death for Americans, your words ring hollow.

We have to be licensed to drive, have a day care, own a business, practice medicine, practice law, to fish, to hunt, to sell tobacco, to sell liquor, sell lemonade, to broadcast, offer advice.

Clowns? (personally, ew) Sure.

But before clowns, politicians should hold a license to determine if they can handle the fiscal responsibility, moral authority, and if they are deemed intellignt enough to serve as a public servant.

No, we don't "have" to be licensed in order to do what is a natural unalienable right. The people have stupidly gone into agreement with such licensing schemes, but we certainly do not "have" to.

Forgive.

Change to; "The law requires. . . . "

You do not need my forgiveness beezer, I like you. That said, the law does not require licensing schemes. Legislation does. Further, much of these licensing schemes would fall apart under the close scrutiny of the law. The Constitutions in the United States, (state and federal), are the Supreme Law of the Land. Within these Constitutions are either the Bill of Rights, or Declaration of Rights that serve as express prohibitions on government from abrogating and/or derogating peoples rights.

The fundamental right to earn a living has existed as long as people have existed. The United States hasn't even existed 250 years yet. You have a right to earn a living and unless that living is undeniably dangerous to people at large, then no state, or the federal government has any lawful authority to impose a licensing scheme upon you.

Your post brings to mind the HRH seal of approval in the United Kingdom. If I read your posts correctly, the government then, is giving authority to an action that is not theirs to approve.

So where would you go to get this license? Do you have to go to a special clown school? Will there be OSHA regulations, like how big your shoes can be? I know let's have a clown test, written and practical. And let's not for get about clown car licenses and tag and special insurance for carrying to many clowns. This has to be the most retarded idea I've heard in... Oh let's say 20 minutes.

Screw it. Next time I travel by air, I want a random dude off the street to fly the plane. We don't need no stinkin' pilot's license...fugheddaboudit.

Granted, a clown license isn't about having achieved competence in clowndom. Clowning cannot be taught; it is a natural gift.

Licensing clearly does not prevent an individual from carrying-out actions that have nothing to do with competence in the field. This is more of a "we know who you are and we know where you live" sort of deal of social intimidation.

Bottom line is: painting it all with the same brush is non-sequitarianism.
