Farewell, Four Loko

So the beverage I and many other college kids like me love so much is officially banned and will no longer be available as of December 13.

So now that it's banned, we'll have a Four Loko black market on our hands, homemade alternatives (some have already popped up on YouTube), and we'll be stuck with paying $6 for a Red Bull and vodka at the bar.

Oh, government. Why is what I ingest your business? Why is there no personal responsibility or accountability? Why are Four Loko makers the bad guys here, and not the idiots that knowingly consumed too much and ended up in the hospital or dead? At least recently, the ingredients and potential effects or drinking Four Loko were well-known. If someone wants to continue drinking it, isn't that their business?

Same could be said for Transfats and sodium and the government is getting rid of much of that..and MSG...gods damn it..I want my MSG back in my soup...Canned soup tastes like crap now...


But this is like the helmet and seatbelt laws...

Remember if we are dead, we can't pay taxes..or at least more taxes after the final estate return.
