Truth in Labeling

Email Print

David Maharaj reads LRC in Canada, from whence he updates me on the state of its police-state. He writes that this week, “the federal government in Ottawa has ordered tobacco companies and retailers to sell cigarette packs with larger warning labels covering 75% of the package.” David’s solution? “Perhaps this law should apply to the state as well. I think every TSA agent should be forced to wear a label that covers 75% of their body. The label should read: “Anyone who comes into contact with this ‘product’ will be sexually violated.”

David continues to marvel as well that politicians so concerned about cushioning us from every risk, no matter how tiny or remote, nonetheless suffer no qualms at all about sending us into that most lethal of situations: war.
