    Just like President Obama is seeking to dismantle the country and turn us into the USSR!  Also like how the public school system is trying to turn all of our kids into homosexuals and big government loving hippies!  

    Protip:  Everyone would probably get farther in life and be a lot happier if they weren't looking for the boogeyman around every corner.  

    Most of the things you mention regarding food, beverages, and music are there because there's a demand for them.  You make it out as though the consumer has no choice in what goods or services they consume or what contracts they enter into.  Using HFCS as an example, people want cheap food, that has a good taste... HFCS and the other things you mention are the way to do that.  The VAST majority of people know full well that it's not good for them, but they consume it anyway because they either enjoy it or don't want to pay more for other food.  I wish we had an unlimited supply of all food and that everyone could have whatever they wanted for free, but costs are costs...

    It's a miserable way of life to think that everyone is always against you and that everyone has a personal vendetta out just to ruin your life.

      when you say:

      You are kidding and meant this as snark? Right?

      Unfortunately, HFCS isn't food, it is poison. Moreover, it isn't actually cheap -- unless the Big Bad Gubmint subsidizes it up, down and center from beginning to end, beginning with the unpaid-for wars to secure the oil supplies in the middle east, upon which the mass-scale ugliculture of corn depends.

      Voter ID laws are real, and the purpose is inarguable: To strip "certain" people of their political rights. That's not left-wing wackadoodle fearmongering of the "Obama's going to take away our guns variety." Let me explain the difference:

      A. Obama has never said or done one thing ever to suggest that he's even interested in anybody's guns.

      vs.

      B. Right-wing legislatures have teamed with Right-wing governors all over America to implement ALEC-written Voter ID laws that place sometimes extraordinary burdens on voters who happen to be poor, or black, or single mothers, or what-have-you. That's not conspiracy theory, it's not foaming-at-the-mouth irrational "Obama's a Kenyan socialist" ignorancia, that's the goddamned fact. Did you know that at the same time Walker attempted to bring Voter ID to Wisconsin, he started shutting down DMV offices -- the only places to obtain such ID -- across the state? Are you aware of the geographic/demographic patterns of those closings? Do you care? Or are you just full of shit?

      Don't bother to respond to that question. We all -- yourself included -- know the answer.

      To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.
