    Rick: You mean, “to avoid” the drinks?

    for anyone who feels that regulation stifles business, no, it protects the consumer. If we allow the distribution of products that not only causes disease and costly medical in which all of us as a society must eventually pay one way or another, but obesity can lead to death.

    I know Dr Picklehead will respond that everyone one to their devices and vices. and that everyone should pay his/her own medical without the benefit of medicare and medicaid. As a Libertarian, he is off the chart in his ideal society.

      And let me further state that the young girl in question did not identify the maker of the energy drink. I do not believe that the term “energy drink” has been or can be trademarked.

      End of story. The drinks are indeed poisonous. So let them sue me. Foolish industry.

      “If ‘we’ allow…..’

      There goes billy again trying to run everyone’s life. Fix your own first. When that’s done, mind your own business.

      That’s correct wildbill, we can’t allow people to harm themselves because that hurts the collective. We can’t allow people to make their own choices because they’re too stupid, the well educated technocrats must make rules & regulations to control everyone’s life.

      Remember, you don’t own your body, the state does.

        That’s true Steve except in the case of a woman’s right to choose death for her unborn child. We must make exceptions where it is politically expedient.

          The mad mad little world of Kim the troller, aka Patric Henry, We Re Doomed and I guess a few other twisto personalities yet to be identified.

          It is medication time. Stop wearing your mother’s dress in the mirror.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if Danang Dick would stop being an AG and start being a US Senator?

    When does the senator actually work? Is he even thinking about our counrties unemployment or our huge national debt or our states shrinking economy? I guess those items do draw as many cameras and media attention.
