Dear MO Lawmakers,
Normally I keep my focus on the crazy that is Kansas, but when something spectacular catches my eye from across the state line, I have to stop and write about it. That’s what happened with MO HB2610 or as I like to call it the Casey Kasem bill, because this bill has lawmakers keeping their feet on the ground, but reaching for the stars –
By stars I mean other professions they are not.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Chapter 21, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be
2 known as section 21.085, to read as follows:
21.085. A person who has served at least two years as a member of the Missouri
2 general assembly shall:
3 (1) Qualify such person to practice law as an attorney in the state of Missouri; and
4 (2) Satisfy any requirements for a person to become an associate or circuit court
5 judge in the state of Missouri.
Whamo-O two years in the general assembly and you are qualified to practice law in Missouri.
Why stop there lawmakers? Lets face it, you spend almost all of those two years passing law after law regulating lady parts. I think that qualifies you to perform a pap smear or two. Let’s just throw MD after your name, get you some ice-cold stirrups and open yourself up a GYN office.
Who can forget the gun bills. There are enough of those to wallpaper your office. That qualifies you to fix a siren on top of your minivan and call yourself a policeman.
I love, love, love this idea of just doing something long enough to expand our career choices. For example, here is a selfie of me contemplating your bill so taking selfies must mean I’m a Kardashian. Since I wrote the word Karashian, I must be a famous celebrity gossip columnist. I’ve also been writing this little blog for over three years that must mean I’m an award-winning journalist.
Thank you for having the power to make us something we are not.
