Welcome to Solomon's Conservative Wisdom

Welcome to my Conservative Blog, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom. The name comes from my middle name and the historical & biblical figure King Solomon, now I make no claim to have Solomon's Wisdom, but I do have Common Sense. I welcome anyone to join in and comment about anything I may have written, posted or one of my Articles / Columns. This blog is dedicated to conservatism and freedom. I invite all conservatives to join in, I don’t mind non-conservatives joining in (after all the only way to change liberals and fence-sitters is to debate them and change their minds, some are just too hard headed to admit they are wrong) . All I expect is a respectful debate.

I have recently split my postings to a few other blogs I own, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom II, and Solomon's Conservative Wisdom at Townhall.com, to spread out some of my postings.
So check them out and tell me what you think.

Please comment on my Articles and Columns, as well as any other post that is not just a link to a story.

I want to know what others think and have a debate. And make sure to check out my Articles and Columns if you haven't already.

So tell everyone you know.

"Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood."

General George S. Patton

Car Seats Have Expiration Dates!?

While reading some messages on a group I belong to I read this,
"I am contacting the member directly as well, but I am emailing to request the listing be removed. Those car seats were manufactured in May of 2003, making them 7 years old. Car seats expire and are supposed to be disposed of at 6 years old. I would hate for someone who doesn't know this to buy these seats and use them, when they are no longer safe to use." In response to someone wanting to sale a child's car seat. Now I know nothing about children's car seats, but this idea of something other then a food item or chemical product having a defined expiration date bothers me.

Let me give you a hypothetical example, if the Obama Administration decided that all TVs sold as of July 1st will have a three year expiration date and after that date those TVs must be taken off the market and can't be resold after their expiration date in the used goods markets, in an attempt to "help" the economy. Now if the Obama Administration was to try this you could be sure the American public would be outraged. The idea of an expiration date on a non-food item or chemical product annoys me, now I know that a parent certainly doesn't want to risk their child's life in a used car seat but the question is how do you know that an item is no longer any good? The fact is that many items still work well years after they where purchased, and just as many items wear out long before they should. If a manufacture of a product wants to give a product a life expectancy I don't have a problem with that, but as progressives have shown they think that our Constitution has out lived its "life expectancy" and needs to be replaced, quite frankly it should be up to the consumer to decide whether they want to trust an item past its "life expectancy."

Remember, Caveat Emptor, let the buyer beware!



  1. I remember reading that during the great depression, hundreds of thousands of used cars were scrapped to deal with the "used car problem." The rationale was exactly the same. It was a market manipulation that probably didn't accomplish a thing.

  2. And somehow I think this one wants to repeat that.
