    To sum it up: The OP suggests that the prevention of venereal diseases and obesity is bad. :lol:

    To sum it up, the first response to the thread totally misses the point. If the government actually wanted to prevent VD it would treat sex the same way it treats food, by pointing out that over indulging in sex leads to VD just like over indulging in food leads to obesity, and how some type of sex is worse than others because it is more likely to result in the very things you dismiss as unimportant.

    Thanks for helping me prove who the real hypocrites are.

    I think the fact that your name is a homonym for a ward that implies sucking. Did anyone teach you basic grammar and punctuation in school?

    Your U.S. Government Irony for Sunday February 28th, 2012.
    The SNAP/Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.

    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed The Animals." This is because the animals may grow dependent on handouts and not learn to take care of themselves.

    Thus endeth today’s lesson in Government Irony.

    Quant, when you're writing to people who think like most here don't, subtle POVs like yours tend to get lost in translation.

    Perhaps if you had written it IDIOT, they could have decoded it.

    If the government treated food like it treats sex we would be arrested for paying to eat.

    Is it important to produce complete sentences and spell correctly when pointing out the mistakes of others?

    You are too good to be true, QW.
