  •  drinking glasses, candy canes, and video games. (0+ / 0-)

    Drinking glasses can be used to serve fruit juice or distilled spirits.  

    Anyone here seriously suggesting banning drinking glasses because they might get children interested in alcohol?  

    And probably 100% of adult cigarette smokers "started with" candy canes.  They have roughly the same form-factor once you break off the hook at the end!  

    If you want to make your assertion seriously and consistently, you'll also have to ban toy weapons of all kinds, and violent video games.  After all, if sucking on an E-Peppermint will cause some number of kids to smoke, then playing Grand Theft Auto will cause some number of kids to become violent criminals.  

    Are you so sure you want to go there?

    "Minus one vote for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
