The Knucklehead of the Year awards- Bureaucratic
The first Knucklehead of the year awards is back. Today's category is the Bureaucratic. Our government or some corportation and the silly rules they create and enforce.
Read this post if you want an explanation of how I set up this year's awards. Our judging panel remains the same.

Before announcing our winner, two other nominees got a single vote each. Greta voted for the Florida Dept of Juvenile Justice saying-
Why didn't they just put the poor child in the hands of Manson. (I am seeing a Florida pattern here)
The other vote went to Spencer High School Principal Olivia Rutledge and her colleagues.
Our bureaucratic winner is.........
Halifax Calderdale Royal Hospital
Way to go Hospital! Halifax Calderdale originally won the knucklehead on September 30th. The hospital administrators wanted people to stop staring at babies. It may disturb the newborns.
Not that newborns can see very far. Apparently the people running the hospital have never gone to medical school.

My choice because it literally illustrates the PC crowd dictating what should happen to us the moment we're born.
That ward nurse who said, “Cooing should be a thing of the past because these are little people with the same rights as you or me,” is a perfect example. She doesn’t know whether the “little people” want to be coo at or not. My experience has been that they almost all do.
But here we have the ward nurse telling us the “little people (have) the same rights as you or me” and then dictating how they’ll be treated. And what’s there right? To be treated as she wants them treated without so much as an approving coo from any of the “little people.”
The ward nurse is pure PC.
So Halifax Calderdale Royal Hospital joins five supreme court justices and MLB Pitcher Kenny Rogers as Knucklehead of the year finalists. Please come back December 26th-29th to find out who our four finalists will be. On December 31st the Grand Knucklehead of 2005 will be announced. Till next time.
