Don’t regulate barbers; vote!

Dear Editor:

From the Star-News.

“If a Maplesville representative has his way, local barber shops will soon be regulated, just like other cosmetology professions.

Alabama State Rep. Kurt Wallace last week introduced HB 664 to establish the Alabama Board of Barbering and Cosmetology.”

I go on record of opposing.

What is wrong with customers choosing a shop that they like and a barber that they want?

Let the shops that are not clean and the Barbers that can’t cut be put out of business by lack of customers.

It has worked for hundreds of years.

SURE I am old fashioned. YES, I do admit it.

The feds already want to regulate or eliminate home gardening.

Soon they will want to regulate our home kitchens. Maybe I will die before that happens.

Freedom goes a little bit at a time and it appears that few care.

Please, go vote Tuesday while you still can.
