ADVERTISING

What makes something qualified to be illegal? If it's dangerous? Unfair? Exploitative? Just plain annoying?

Here are some perfectly legal things that many people think should aboslutely not be:

1.

Increasing the volume on commercials by 20 goddam decibels. - jcro8829

2.

Civil asset forfeiture. - Std_Dev1437

For those who may be unfamiliar (okay, me) with this extremely common practice, civilrights.org has great info.

3.

Sending catalogs to my house without my permission. The quantity of paper that is wasted is unreal. We call to have them cancelled but they keep coming. I have to pay to have my trash collected where I live, so basically those companies are forcing me to pay to throw away their garbage that they created unnecessarily and there is nothing I can do. - vaporeng

4.

'Convenience fees' for paying taxes and bills online. - menege1293

5.

For profit prisons. - The-Silent-Cicada

6.

Child beauty pageants. - getthephenom

7.

Corporations owning single family homes.

Also, sale of my data. I should not have to opt out for a company not to sell my data I should have to opt in. - Gerlon_Two_Fingers

8.

Overselling a plane and putting people who BOUGHT tickets on stand by. - no_tori_ous

9.

Gerrymandering. How the hell is it just for a politician to pick their constituents? It results in more extreme candidates and disenfranchised voters who got packed or cracked. - CeolMor

Here's a detailed breakdown of this rampant problem with a silly name from the Brennan Center.

10.

Hiding ingredients in food by calling it 'natural flavors'. - Vegan_Harvest

11.

Cops can lie to you, but you cannot lie to them. - randomatic

12.

Congress owning stocks in any industry or company they regulate, take money from, etc. Corporations donating to political campaigns. Advertising prescription drugs to customers (the US is one of the only places this is still legal). - diaperedace

13.

Siren sounds on the radio. - 9681468046

14.

Ticketmaster. How is that not scalping? - Hey_Its_Q

15.

Bribery. Sorry, I mean lobbying. - JBEqualizer

16.

Political campaign donations. All Political campaigns should be free to run. No one gets to advertise. Network TV Aires debates in prime time paid for by the taxpayer. - misha_ostrovsky
