    First it was the after dinner cigar, then salt, then sugar, then egg yolks, then toys in Happy Meals, and now Irish Coffee.

    Do you really want the Federal government to dictate what you should and should not be able to buy of legal substances and have authority to require private businesses to adhere to its dictates?

    They can have my Irish coffee when they pry it from my cold, dead Polish hand.

    you're right.. we should ignore the fact that kids are getting hold of Four-Loko and are dying.

    it's their right and all...

    perhaps Irish coffee, is better left at really *being* Irish coffee instead of drinks with caffein equal to about five cups?

    The "Four Loko" ban isn't based on science - true. But kids drink Four Loko - not adults.


    No one's going to ban your Irish Coffee..

    These liberals are all quite insane. Can we ban them?

    If underage kids are drinking "Four Loko", then the authorities should be going after the people selling it to them, not the company making it.

    Why should adults that enjoy it have to suffer for liquor store owners and their employees who don't know how to or care enough to card their customers?
