Karena went on a rant last night

It is fairly normal for me to go on a rant, my wife is another story entirely.

We are all sick. My wife and both kids are fairly sick; I just have a little of it. So Karena (My wife) went to Walgreens to get some cold medicine. They had those stupid cards since they can no longer leave the actual cold medicine on the shelf.

She decided she wanted night-time and day-time cold medicine for the kids and then normal day-time cold medicine for herself. So she gathered all of the cards and went and stood in line. When she got to the cash register they told her that she could not buy that much cold medicine. They told her she could only buy TWO boxes of cold medicine...

So she bought two and left... She was NOT pleased...

This is a great example of our government at work. Of course this is NOT going to stop Meth production; we all know that. The only people who think it will stop Meth production are politicians (Especially Mark Souder). This is a STUPID law from our nanny state. It is AMAZING to me that it was passed by Large Government Republicans...

WHAT MORONS...

P.S. Does ANYONE who reads this blog think this is a good law? If so please leave a comment because I want to hear from you.

No, I've been pissed off about this already as well...

We all know that domestic Methamphetamine manufacturing only accounts for a very small percentage of the U.S. Meth market...

Souder would have you believe that meth production is the #1 issue facing every midwestern state. I mean what would happen if you could buy medication OTC? Complete anarchy I tell you.

But remember we're winning the war on drugs - I hear the dealers are in their last throes...

Perhaps when Rumsfeld resigns he can bring his expertise

No.. when you are sick the last thing you want to do is stand in line for you stupid OTC drugs.

Can't we stand in line for the other less used by normal people chemicles?

I feel like by imposing these things on the normal citizen we are actually letting meth makers win in a sense.

Actually it looks like these new laws kind of work. The number of meth labs being found have gone down considerably, at least here in Noble County. It was pretty much an every-other-day occurence to hear about a meth lab being found, but now it's pretty rare.

I don't have any numbers to back that up, but my perception is that something has changed.

I hope that you can find some statistics to back that up Craig. I would recommend that you NOT get them from The Drug Enforcement Agency! They have a vested interest in making everyone think they are winning the war on drugs...

If Meth use goes down THEN THIS MAY be an accpetable law. I do not believe it will.

I am looking forward to looking at some statistics on this when they come out.

What's to stop meth-makers from just traveling store to store, or employing associates to gain the amount of OTC drugs needed to make thear wares?

Just more feel-good nannny-state BS.

To All,

I remember when we were at "war" with the Soviet Union. One of the things we used to pity about the poor soviet citizen was his/her standing in line for hours for the simplest and most mundane items. As Americans we all thought this was crazy!

Now it would appear that the idea of long lines will be coming to America.

What will happen, I wonder aloud, when someone publishes all the really simple chemicals you need to make a chemical weapon? Will then chlorine bleach along with other simple to find chemicals also require a long line?

But wait, we now have declared war on obesity, right? Keep the kids fit is becoming part and parcel of every politicians platform. Maybe we should force mothers (and PARTICULARLY grandmothers) to stand in line for all of the wonderful ingredients to sugar cookies, brownies, pies, and desserts of all kinds. After all, THEY MUST EXPLAIN THEMSELVES! Who knows what kind of sweets those dastardly grandmothers will be shoving down the throats of innocent children from coast to coast???

But wait, there's more! We are also becoming a great nanny state, where seat belts are manditory, smoking is more evil than adultury, and riding so much as a bicycle is required to have at LEAST 1,500,000,000 safety features such as reflectors, pads, helmits, and safety goggles. God help you if you don't. But this means that grandfathers too will not be exempt from long lines. Who knows how many fingers will get caught on a fishing hook? God help the granddad who takes junior out hunting! The line for ammo alone will put poor old gramps from ambulatory to cane to walker to wheelchair in no time.

Yes folks, its true. I date myself.

I date myself by remembering when it was just the poor Soviets who had long lines for the simple things...

Respectfully,

Doug Horner
