Sudafed Deemed A Threat To Homeland Security

You better not have a runny nose or watery eyes or you might run afoul of the Patriot Act.

According to USA Today, provisions are being added to this legislation, infamous for troubling libertarians from both ends of the political spectrum, that will limit the amount of pseudoephedrine an individual can purchase and require the purchaser to produce a photo ID in order to complete the transaction. Always good to condition the free citizen to bow before authorities in order to remind the humble supplicant of his place before the slave master.

Where will this nonsense end?

Maybe we should herd everyone into designated relocation camps for their own safety. After all, investigations indicate terrorists are more likely to plot such acts when concealed behind closed doors and private residences; it was said in Nam that the village had to be burned to the ground to save it.

Since the epidemic of childhood obesity threatens military recruiting goals in the future, perhaps government sanctioned nutritional accounts should be established where a computerized identification system could be used to determine what foods the individual will be allowed to eat. After all, this is a matter of Homeland Security.

Those prone to think as they are told by those with offices and degrees scoff, but food is legal. But so is Sudafed and it is a perfectly legitimate product until abused as meth.
One might say the obese are misusing food. Should the government intervene to prevent that?

I guess to some radical supporters of El Presidente, this very post is an act of sedition since freedom of expression is a "privilege" that can no longer be countenanced in the war on terror.

In remarks supporting the reauthorization of the Patriot Act, Senator Jim Bunning remarked civil liberties don't mean much when you are dead. So adhering to such logic, Hitler, Stalin, and the like didn't really do anything wrong until they started tossing their people into gas ovens or having them freeze to death in work camps but were within the realm of propriety to break down doors in the middle of the night without cause, riffle through people's possessions for no reason, and to move their populations about as they saw fit all in an attempt to thwart the perceived enemies of the superstate.
