    This is what happens when you teach kids that government is there to 'take care' of people. Is there nowhere left on the planet where people can make choices for themselves?

    Boston is full of fucking idiots these days.

    Check this out:

    Cambridge art project turns your parking tickets into poetry - Cambridge, Massachusetts - Cambridge Chronicle

    The poetry in parking enforcement? I don't know what this guy is smoking.

    But wait there more

    And then there's this


    And people say the Tea Party folks are wackos.

    "whether to restrict or even prohibit the sale of calorie-laden refreshments on city-owned property"

    though I am opposed to nanny states in their various forms I accept the action of the government, in their(our?) buildings, to restrict the sale of questionable/unhealthy foods and to encourage/promote healthier foods ONLY AS LONG as each individual is NOT denied the right to bring their OWN unhealthy foods to work.

    additionally;
    though I will "accept this action"
    I do not approve of it.
    and if they had asked us to vote on this issue I would have voted NAY.

    but as long as people can bring their own cancer-causing foods to work in their attempts to shorten their lives I feel this issue is not very important

    I can not stop :lol: LMAO!!!!!!

    Born and raised and currently in the city of Cambridge and I can tell you first hand, this city is infested with 'touchy feely' social work type people. THIS does not surprise me in the least! I expect it from the artsy granola types.

    Seriously, I'm frigin' hysterical over here! I just shared this story with a few of my co-workers.

    :lol:

    :lol:

    :lol:

    Listen, not all of us are as fucked as these people are.

    One last thing ...

    ONLY IN CAMBRIDGE!!!
