If Gary Bettman were President...

This list is inspired from a conversation I had with my brother regarding NHL supplemental discipline.

If Gary Bettman were President (more accurately Governor of any state because these mostly deal with police power, but we can leave that aside):

-Drinking and driving would be legal, just don't crash.

-Driving on the sidewalk (or wrong side of the road) is legal, just don't hit anyone.

-Firing weapons in public would be legal, just don't hit anyone.

-Possessing drugs would be legal, using or selling them would be illegal.

-Breaking into someone's house would be legal, just don't take anything.

-Owning child porn would be legal, just don't be the cameraman.

-Gambling would be legal, but don't win or lose any money.

-Breaking the law would be fine, as long as you are rich and/or famous (D'oh we already live in that world).

 

If he were your spiritual/religious leader:

-Premarital sex would be fine, premarital pregnancy would be a mortal sin.

-Eating pig would be fine, getting trichinosis is a sin.

-Worshipping another God would be ok, just don't get Saved by that God.

-Coveting your neighbor's wife is ok, but adultery is a sin.

 

Someone needs to teach this guy a lesson in incentives, and how they work.  Let me know if you think of any others.
