I put aside my fairly amiable, detached nature, and just let someone have it who deserves it. Sometimes, I think you really do need to get “Who the hell do you think you are?” with some of these fascist interlopers who pretend to be good Americans. I’m fairly sorry to say this particular person hails from Concord, New Hampshire, the land of “Live Free and I’ll Fine and/or Imprison You,” apparently.
Of course, maybe I’ve just been trolled, which if that is the case, bravo.

That’s quite the skilled troll, if that was the intent. I’m afraid that it isn’t, because it looks like the inductive reasoning I’ve been hearing a lot of lately.
Just look at the powerful corporate marketing slogans for crack. If wasn’t for the elaborate marketing, nobody would want it. Just like boobs, if it wasn’t for Hugh’s evil machinations, nobody would be interested in them at all. There isn’t any other plausible explanation for why people might want something.
Reading through that “conversation” between you and “Cam”, I had a tangentially-related thought.
When was the last time you saw a truly clever marketing scheme for bacon?
I can’t recall one ever. Why? Bacon is full of all kinds of “bad” fats and has very little “good” nutritional value. Religions ban it. Dietitians and doctors scorn it.
Despite all that, bacon is AWESOME! Loving bacon is like shoving a middle finger in the face of all that is healthy and holy.*
So where’s the push for a “common sense” law to ban all forms of bacon? “For the Children.” “If it saves just one life….” Where’s the “A-Salted Meat Bans” to protect people from EBRs (Evil Bacon Renderings)? If it’s that bad for us, who will protect us from ourselves?
(*: Have to give somewhat fair attribution. That sentence is from a college-level marketing textbook, and is the funniest damn thing I’ve ever read while studying. “Somewhat fair” because I don’t have the info in front of me for a proper citation. :) )
You’re auguring with an idiot, someone who never grew up and wants to be treated like a child. I have no doubt that his mom laid out his clothes till he was 30. I’m off to drink a 20 ounce Pepsi and swoosh it around my no cavity mouth.
The problem is not that these busybodies want to help us (â€œItâ€™s for your own good.â€). The problem is that they are busybodies and control freaks with a codependent relationship with society. Maybe a 12-Step program should be created for them. (1. We admitted we were powerless over the prolesâ€™ behavior and our lives had become unmanageable. â€¦)
On second thought, their egos probably can’t handle the Second Step: Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
No, you just have to modify the program so that step two is off a ledge into an industrial tree chipper (Which is definitely a power greater than themselves as evidenced by the crimson shower of moron slurry).
I blame childproofing devices and bike helmets for this. Nature used to self correct idiots like Cam into graphic examples of why common sense and self reliance are good ideas.
I’m trying to cut back on my soda and shit like this is doing the exact opposite.
You wanna know why I now want to drink soda, because FUCK YOU that’s why!
The part that amused me the most was the “I don’t want to deprive you of your freedom, but let’s limit soda and junk food advertisements!” bit. I’m sorry, what part of “freedom” do you not get?
Thats been the progressive mantra since the beginning of the century, “Dont you know its not good for you, we need to ban it!” which then turns to “You just cant think for yourself, we need to teach you better” and then evolves (key word) into “You just shouldnt be allowed to think that way, welcome to this camp. Its better for you, because we say so.”.
You did a good job, Sebastien. There’s a lot of crazy in that thread.
