I thought the trade commission was out of touch all this time.
I was wrong again.
A good move and a blow to the criminals without a face.

Yes.
The F-Gang of paid missinformers and reviewers.

Dino they keep talking about a guide ,but don't say who's.I hope Eurekazone. Seriously, everyone knows it is not right to talk like a consumer when you are a representative of the product by way of pay or merchandise unless you disclose same. The reason it has taken so long for the government to realize it is we have congressmen that don't realize it is wrong to vote on legislation for people you have received money, trips and other gratuities from.If you have to explain ethics and morality to someone, then you are probably wasting your time.

Dempsey,
I don't get this one.
They ( who?) and what guide? :confused:
If (they) are the F-people, the only other guide was eurekazone.
Maybe I got it wrong?
Not the first time...:rolleyes:

About Government and democracy,
Remember that democracy was Invented by a popular manipulator.
The funny thing, ( funny things are very serious )
Our President and Secretary of state was the #1 and #2 recipients
of campaign contributions by the biggest drug dealers.
The makers and pushers of opium pills with nice names like Oxycontin.
Another young kid died today in Edison NJ.:mad:
Few weeks ago, I have a meeting with the mayor and propose a system
and few good ideas to prevent this from happening.
His answer?
I have no time for this.

You can call me crazy but by doing nothing about our very own society,
we're guilty of everything that is wrong with it.

Thousands of years ago....A wise man said:
Nothing is wrong with the youth IF nothing is wrong with us.


My answer to the mayor was, Do you think I have time?
We're so busy with stupid things that we're always out of time.:(

The cynic in me, thinks two things:
1. Since this takes effect Dec. 1, you will see a lot of "testimonials" in November, pre Christmas.
2. How many lawyers are looking over it, going, "where are the loopholes" and "they have to catch us first, who is paying for enforcement".

Democracy is an idea, I've never seen one.

Pet peeve. We DON'T live in a Democracy. We live in a Republic. It is hard enough to get people out to vote for a representative (percentage of the population that votes), let alone get enough people out there to say "none of the above" or vote on EVERYTHING like a Democracy would.
There is a lot of lazy people in this (and I am sure most other) countries, and we wonder/B&M about when "foreigners"/immigrants/other countries, get "our" jobs. You have to have pride in AND do your work.

This reminds me of a line from my wife's experience with Mary Kay: "If you don't take time, time will take you."

Sorry there is no "who", the guide I was referring to was the constant use of the term guide in the law.A weak attempt at humor, since are all about guides.I was also alluding to the fact that the F-tool boys know what they are doing is wrong and a set of rules or guides is not going to keep them from doing it. Randall is right who and how are you going to enforce it when the worst cases are in online forums. I don't even want to start on the prescription drug problem. I am a retired firefighter in south Florida and I have seen so many dead children and ruined lives and families from so called prescription drugs.Most of these drugs were only intended for terminal conditions, not to be passed out like aspirin for every ache and pain. Sorry for the rant.
