Government's New War: The War on ToysSubmitted by bayou on Sun, 11/04/2012 - 00:41
Now more than ever, it seems apparent to me that the government cannot survive without a constant stream of fear and endless wars on every front. I've never even heard of a Buckyball till now. How many warning labels should a manufacturer be "required" to put on a package? How strong should the warning language be? This is yet again another gross example of government destruction, no matter how seemingly indirect it might be, of an industry or at least one facet of any industry that provided careful people with a product they could enjoy which also provided jobs for those producing the novelty item. The parents are ultimately responsible for the welfare of their children, but unfortunately, many people have ceded that roll to the government. The government can kill two, three, or four birds at one time, so maybe there is indeed something the government is good at or efficient in doing. What a disgrace.
"Due to baseless and relentless legal badgering by a certain four letter government agency, it's time to bid a fond farewell to the world's most popular adult desk toys, Buckyballs and Buckycubes. That's right: We're sad to say that Balls & Cubes have a one-way ticket to the Land-of-Awesome-Stuff-You-Should-Have-Bought-When-You-Had-the-Chance."
