MORE Government Control – Quelle Surprise!

Clayton Cramers’ Blog linked to a recent Washington Times article regarding that wonderfully ever-progressive State of California leading the way with more meaningless government control: 

~California also became the first state in the nation to require a prescription for obtaining any drug containing dextromethorphan, an ingredient found in many popular over-the-counter cough suppressants, including Robitussin, NyQuil and Dimetapp.~ (emphasis Guffaw)

The law was prompted by a spike in the use of cough syrup as a recreational drug.

I suspect as they inspect incoming Arizona vehicles for ‘buggy’ produce, they will now begin inspecting incoming California vehicles for cough syrup.
“You’re found in possession of Triaminic, you’re busted!”  “Look, Bill, he has teaspoons, too!”  “Paraphenalia, add it to the charges.”
Hey!  California’s creating new jobs for dismissed TSA folk!  Good job!

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune

“F**k Civility. Hyperbole, passion, and metaphor are beautiful parts of rhetoric. The marketplace of ideas cannot be toned down for the insane.” - Penn Jillette
