The Pizza Police

Example 1,876,342 of why there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between Republicans and Democrats:

So, as usual, what has Republican leaders grumbling is not the principle that free people ought to be at liberty to conduct routine business without federal mandates. What irks them is that Obama bureaucrats are marginally more domineering than, say, Bush-era light bulb bureaucrats. (By the way, Daniel Horowitz of RedState reminds us that Rep. Upton’s light bulb ban “made its way into the 2007 energy bill [signed by President Bush], which turned out to be the Obamacare of the energy industry.”) Upton and Rodgers object to what they call FDA’s inflexible “‘my way or the highway’ approach” to the imposition of government standards. That the imposition itself, quite apart from its obnoxious manner, is offensive never dawns on them. And speaking of offensive, how’d you like this Upton-Rodgers line: “In fact, Congress has previously partnered with the restaurant industry to improve consumers’ access to information.” Michael Bloomberg and Debbie Wasserman-Shultz wouldn’t have written it any differently.

As he notes, this is why Obama managed to win again with four million fewer votes than the last time.

    Perhaps, just perhaps, the Republicans ought to consider the posiblitly that “We’re not quite as bad as the other guys!” isn’t the most inspiring of slogans?

    A CJ,
    how about, “We’ll let you keep your guns, but THAT pizza is OURS!”

    Or they could paraphrase some quotes we all know.

    “Guns don’t kill people. pizzas do!”

    “Nannyism is as much a virtue as justice, and is as necessary for the support of societies as natural affection is for the support of families”
    .
    .
    Or maybe we should fire back at these losers with a motto or two of our own.
    .
    .
    “Give me a 5 meat pizza, or give me death!” (that could be self fulfilling!)

    “They that can give up essential Pizza to purchase a little temporary Health, deserve neither Pizza nor Health!”

    “Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of Pizza”

    “I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me pizza or give me death”

    (I could do this ALL day long, all DAY long, all day LONG!!)
