Blind, unthinking obedience to authority.

Right now, students must have a prescription or note from a licensed health care professional to use over-the-counter sunscreen products while at school. According to The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, sunscreen is considered to be a medication because it is regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration and is categorized as a "sunscreen drug product."

Kudos for this push to restore sanity go to Jesse Michener, the Washington mom who in 2012 sent her daughters Violet, 11, and Zoe, 9, off to an all-day school event on a day that began as rainy (it's Washington, after all) but then turned so sunny it burnt her kids fiery red when school policy forbid them to apply sunscreen—even as teachers slathered in on themselves. The Huffington Post reports:

Michener told The Huffington Post that adults made comments about her kids burning, but because of the law, did nothing about it. She wrote on her blog, "one of my children remarked that their teacher used sunscreen in her presence and that it was 'just for her.' So, is this an issue of passive, inactive supervision? Where is the collective awareness for student safety?" At the very least, a hat might have protected the girls, but, "alas, hats are not allowed at school, even on field day."

Because, you know. Hats!

And all this is even though one of the daughters, Zoe, has a form of albinism that makes her especially sensitive to the sun.

Skin is just skin, but rules are rules.

Cont...Five Years After Girls' Severe Sunburn, Washington Considers Bill to Let Students Use Sunscreen Without Doctor’s Note

I'm wondering how many people here defy authority... at all.  Even in the slightest.

Anyone?

The advantage of insinuations over hard arguments is that they bypass critical thought. No one can respond precisely to a charge that is utterly vague or to accusers who will envelope any reply in a poisonous fog of further insinuations. ~ David Warren, The Guardian

There was a time when there was enough freedom that it hardly mattered which brand of crooks ran government. That has not been true for a long time and that captures an important point. The more powerful the government becomes, the more people are willing to do in order to seize the prize, and the more afraid they become when someone else has control. ~ Glenn Harlan Reynolds

I barter and pay cash for stuff sometimes, thus avoiding some taxes from time to time. Does that count?

Same on you, it is your patriotic duty to pay taxes. Render unto God what is God's, render unto Cesar what is Cesar's. You sound like a bunch of commies.

I do not think that word means what you think it means.

If you have been bitten by a rattlesnake then I happily bow to your superior knowledge as to what being bitten by a rattlesnake is like.

Of course the point is you do not have to be bitten by a rattlesnake to know it's poisonous which was an analogy to your comment. I know you are smart enough to get the point & also to avoid being shown you are wrong.
