US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Thursday the challenges facing Colombia will only get harder if a trade deal with Washington doesn't pass, as she met with union members during a visit to try to revive the pact. The union members want regulations and restrictions in the USA removed from some of their goods, specifically, cocaine.
As many stupid things as the Give-mint does with OUR money, if everyone is so exercised about drug use, why doesn't Washington just buy up all of the cocaine? Corner the market. Then they could do what they might as well do with the rest of our tax dollars: incinerate the drug. OR, they could set up "clinics" to administer the stuff to Those In Need of it.
For a nominal fee. Very nominal, so that there is no way to recoup the cost. That would be par.
The FDA could re-define "Vitamin C" to "Vitamin Cocaine", and use it as a breakfast cereal additive. It would be some improvement on all that sugar, and having more "vitamins" would make parents feel better about feeding their kids the junk, instead of "have-it-all" Mom staying home and actually cooking food for the li'l darlin's. Maybe the coke could help Johnny focus a bit more, and he wouldn't need his Ritalin.
Might be a good idea to actually follow the serving sizes, though.
Perhaps administer it to Bernanke and the Fed yes-men, you know, to stimulate actual thought.
Give Jorge Dubya a brimmin' bowl of Capn' Crunch before the State of the Union, and you'd have a Pay-Per-View event.
