It's not all bad news...

You came for the drugs, and I said nothing, because I had no drugs.
You came for the cigarettes, and I said something, because I saw where this was going.
You came for my food, and I am getting really pissed off.


The Los Angeles City Council has passed an ordinance prohibiting construction of new fast-food restaurants in a 32-square-mile area inhabited by 500,000 low-income people.

Great. Now we are treating poor people like they are unable to make their own eating choices, so the LA City Council bans fast food for them. This is a huge, HUGE, leap in the direction of government controlling every aspect of our lives. If they can make rules so that poor people can't have fast food restaurants, then they can tell rich people that they have to donate some of the land they own to government projects. Or tell people that commute to work that they can't live more than 5 miles away from work. Really how far are we away from socialism? 10, 15 years?
We need real change in the government, not "Change" like Obama says, but real, freedom loving, change. Republicans and Democrats can't deliver that.

On a lighter note; Playing soccer while wearing binoculars:
