    It's not about the light bulbs... it's about choice.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It's about choice. Why can't I choose cereal with razor blades in it or salmonella tainted food?

    Stupid government and it's regulations.

    You have the freedom to eat your cereal with razor blades in it. Just do it in your own home. I encourage you to pursue your freedom.

    LOL While FilmFestGuy's analogy may be a bit extreme .. I think you understand the point he is making. He knows the two aren't comparable, but that does not make the principle of the matter any less true.

    His illustration of the absurd is supposed to demean those who wish to have a choice. Given that cereal with razor blades is not currently on the market or purchased through any retailer, the absurd is revealed to be nothing more that just that: absurdity. A valid analogy would be, "Why can't I buy cereal with raisins in it?" when for example, the Government has decided that to create raisins costs too much energy (I'm making this up), and therefore has banned raisins in cereal. FilmFestGuy was simply trying to assert his view of absurdity (because he does not value choice) with an irrelevant analogy.

    Actually, I believe he has the freedom to eat cereal with razor blades in it and I encourage him to pursue his freedom.

    So Kellogg has such a right to manufacture such a product, yes or no?
