There are many laws today that concern us. But, out of these laws someone forgot to add the importance of honesty into the mix. If a law could be made to make people have to be honest, life would be so much different.
Imagine going to the supermarket and buying a pound of meat. Today when we go it looks pink and juicy. But, if honesty was a law, the markets could not plump up the meat with water and add additives for color. They would also not be able to include those soaked strips of paper that add at least two ounces to its weight. Just think how nice it would be to take home that 1/2 a pound of brown paper thin piece of meat to place on your grill. At least, you could eat it proudly knowing that it came to you with total honesty.
How about the police that stop you for a speeding ticket? Can you imagine how nice it would be if while driving down a highway there were bright signs that tell you to lower your speed. Instead, they are added to a sign saying, "Thank You for Visiting Us," while a tree hides a small inconspicuous 45 MPH sign way down to your far right by a ditch.
If honesty was made into law our economy would not only boom once again but be totally sustained by its new and ever growing prisons! ;-)
