Sick of It


Das Williams recently introduced a bill that would ban sugary drinks on school campuses.

Boy, am I sick of laws like this, and even sicker of “legislators” who waste their time and our money passing them. What business it is of the government to tell us what we can and can’t drink? Because he doesn’t like fat students? That’s none of his business. These are just the kind of people we don’t need running our government and ruining our lives, and we’ve got to get rid of them.
