    I would love you forever if you sent me some!

    Is that a federal offense? To send contraband via mail, cause I don't want to get an international manhunt over me for some Lucky Charms.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    No, nobody was really outraged by it. Jimmy Kimmel made fun of it last night in his show.

    His commercial said Cheerios is good for erectile disfunction or something as the reason for the FDA looking into it.

    Wait!!!! Cheerios? The cereal? Yup. According to the FDA, Cheerios is a drug because Cheerios markets the cereal as a healthy choice that helps reduce cholesterol. Therefore it must be regulated.

    Is it just me, or does anybody else believe that the government has taken stupidity to heights never before imagined in their wildest hallucinations?

    BREAKING NEWS: The government is about to declare pornography a drug because it gives us guys erections.

    Doctor: "Never mind the Viagara. Here is a package with some very potent drugs in it. Take one Marilyn Chambers movie every night before bed time, and one playboy at any time you feel the urge but can't get it up. That will be $45.00 for the office visit and $600.00 for the porn....err, I mean medicine."

    On the way home, the patient runs a red light. He tells the police officer that it was just an accident. It seems that the stick shift in his pants stuck, forcing his leg down on the gas pedal. The cop sees the porn in the passenger seat and arrests him for driving under the influence of drugs.

    Yea, I know, I know, my story is stupid, but come on folks, it is not even 2% as stupid as the Federal government wanting to classify a cereal as a drug, is it?

    Want to know what the most dangerous drug in the United States is? It is big government. It replaces heroin as the biggest monkey on peoples' backs.

    Article is here.
    After tapping REFRESH 3 times the story never did load. Knowing the US government, I believe the story exists,... and tell your children, and tell them to tell theirs..., SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE...!

    I guess, when you live your life believing the Government is a benevolent force of good, one need not have factual information, just make insulting comments and display smugness.
    The Government is like a dog-whistle.... whenever it blows, the libs come running in to get them milk-bone.

    Just like you're so predictable that we all knew you would take a potshot at "libs", because it's your M.O.?
