How Dumbasses Enable The Jackasses.......
Here is the perfect example of why Dumbass politicians can be just as bad as their Jackass associates in the Big Government Party. This guy has the making of a great Washington DC addition to help out the "Small Government" DOP, and will probably be running for congress in the next election cycle. As the saying goes, "No Good Deed Ever Goes Unpunished". And when it is a bunch of them, acting for the good of the community, there has to be some way to Regulate their behavior.

Watch the Video at the top of the article.

Lawmaker wants Cajun Navy, other volunteers to get training, pay fee

Quote:Republican State Senator Jonathan Perry of the Vermillion, Lafayette area, is working on legislation that could require training, certificates and a permit fee to allow these Good Samaritans to get past law enforcement into devastated areas. He said some were turned away.

“At the end of the day, there are going to be two things that are going to be the hurdle when you approach it from the state’s standpoint,” said Sen. Perry in a radio interview. “Liability is going to be number one for them. They don’t want the liability of someone going out to rescue someone and then not being able to find them (the rescuers) and, secondly, there’s a cost.”

Members of the Cajun Navy don’t understand the regulations.

"How can you regulate people helping people? That doesn't make sense to me," said Clouatre.

"And we'll never know how many people got rescued, right? Because there were no bureaucrats with clipboards marking down how many. They just went and did it," said publisher Scott McKay. "The fact that John Perry is a Republican, right? It's like 'Hey, you ran on small government. Now you want to regulate the Cajun Navy.' What are you doing?"
 
Senator Perry did not return phone calls for a comment.

Members of the Cajun Navy said they know the flooded areas better than the official rescuers who came in from out of town. They said they did things officials would not have been allowed to do to save lives.

Some we talked to are not opposed to taking a rescue safety course but said it would be better through the private sector.
