Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

The most recent Food and Drug Administration proposed regulations affecting e-cigarettes raise serious policy and civil liberties questions about the role of government when it attempts to address a societal problem such as smoking.

The F.D.A. should not overstep its authority and encroach on the principles and values of freedom and liberty that are the cornerstones of America.

About 1wanderingtruthseeker

I'm a fiftish woman that has opinions and passions about nearly everything under the sun. I love a good debate, not name calling. I believe in the Constitution , the Bill of Rights and God. I believe the government which governs the least is the best government of all. I believe in the rights of the people. I dispatched fire trucks, the Po-Po and ambulances for a long time so I have a wicked sense of dark humor and speak fluent sarcasm. I think out loud a lot times. I am offensive. But I'm offensive of everybody. Socially unacceptable, plain spoken and unashamed. If you don't want to be offend, please don't read and if you do, please consider that I'm not politically correct in any sense of the word.
