Bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room police are here, too. Closet, deck and garage police are coming!
I’ll never go back; not even for a Broadway Play and dinner. Never, ever again.
Might as well ban movies!
There will soon be a huge black market in these items and
the tax revenues won’t be paid and then they’ll raise taxes
Medical studies clearly indicate that individuals who remain sexually active late in life live longer. Since the government is so concerned about my health, I demand free Viagra.
Hmmm. I'll pass on the Viagra but how about health-a-tutes?
Post of the day.
Somewhere, a certain “Tree” needs some serious “Refreshing”.
Yes. We can call the program See Alice.
Wow!! NYC will be the healthiest city in the whole universe! People will live to see 150! People will jog cross town to work and not even break a sweat! Cabs will be put of business because no one will use them! Dentists will be rendered useless with virtually no sugar allowed in the city! Everyone will be perfect looking! IT IS UTOPIA!!!
It was really all about controlling men.
But what about controlling women?? They have their babies KILLED with the blessings of govenment. Sick...just plain sick...
We had an historic (baloney) house in the next town over. "The boys" built it so they could smoke and drink. Basically, it was a club house. The historian said it was because the women didn't want the smoke in the house but there's no documentation ("0") to back that up.
It was built in the 1930's so it's hardly historic....not in that area...
I checked into the folks living at that time. This was simply a club....had nothing to do with their old ladies....except to get away from them. There were actually a couple joints around Town...And rather exclusive to one set of immigrants.
the carbon police
the recycling police
I made the same pledge last time I was there and I intend to keep it. That was 20 years ago.
I am so disgusted with day old popcorn and watered down drinks at WAY too high prices at the moviehouse.
I bring in my own bottled water and snacks from now on.
Our local theater has all but stopped selling tickets out front, you are forced to buy them at the refreshment counter, whats is next, are they going to start searching people for hidden snacks brought in from outside?
After many years of an aging old theater we were grateful for a modern one with Real 3D, but I refuse to buy their snacks anymore.
Prohibition was passed in a perfectly constitutional manner and so was it’s repeal.
This nonsense is pure despotism and should be met with violent force from federal marshals.
Then we'll TAX the crap out of the offending item! Make it so expensive that they can't afford to buy more!
(Didn't you learn anything from the way they handled cigarettes?)
Those guys on the corner standing in the doorway have some. But don't tell them I sent you!
Yep - and smokers warned everyone else about this slippery slope we are now witnessing.
They should say what the pro-abort feminazis have said for years, “its my body” in regard to the foodnazis.
