San Francisco is off it's rocker.....

First, I am not sure if San Francisco was ever on a rocker or for that matter ever owned one:) Depending on what numbers you look at you can come up with different numbers. But most people believe that smoking and obesity are the #1 and #2 contributing factors to death respectively. So San Francisco is banning pharmacies from selling cigarettes. What is next? Will they ban them from selling potato chips and other fattening foods? Wait a minute, products heavy in sugar also lead to becoming fat.... out goes the candy. If government really wants to help people make better choices they will stop pandering to idiots and would start actually teaching people common sense. I mean it is nice that we can all do algebra and have an appreciation for Shakespeare but it would be better if we had more common sense:)

Whenever you have an efficient government you have a dictatorship.
Harry S Truman (1884 - 1972), Lecture at Columbia University, 28 Apr. 1959
