Pocho Ocho top rules Republicans think you should be able to ignore

SENATORSCiting the burden of compliance with “big government,” Senator Thom Tills (R-North Carolina) (photo) would let restaurants “opt out” of regulations requiring employees to wash their hands before returning to work.

This isn’t the only rule Tills would eliminate, and he isn’t the only Republican with this opinion. These are the Pocho Ocho top rules the GOP thinks we should ignore:

8. I before E, except after C

7. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself

6. Mind the gap

5. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion

4. Rightie tightie, leftie loosie

3. Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free

2. Once you go Black you’ll never go back

And the numero uno rule Republicans think you should be able to ignore is…

Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country
