To Arms! To Arms!

The Second American Civil War begins! Citizens, defend your rights!

First they came for the smokers
But I was not a smoker, so I did not speak out
Then they came for the movie theater popcorn
But I no longer attend the movies, so I did not speak out
Then they came for the Hardee's Thickburger
But there is no Hardee's in Maine, so I did not speak out
Then they came for the bacon
And I finally got mad enough to say 'you can take my bacon when you pry it from my cold, dead, fingers, you miserable nanny-staters!'

Wow. Following the links in this post was, ahem, educational.

These folks believe that those who would inform the public of potential health risks in our food supply are somehow trying to make your favorite foods illegal. And they call the health advocates "alarmist."

Pot, meet the kettle.

Some people just have too much time on their hands.

Now pass the ribs.

We should declare a National CSS (cured, smoked, salted) Meat Day. A day dedicated to eating such tasty carcinogen flesh at all three meals.
