A place to rant about politics, the media, and especially the electorate. Much like alcohol, the electorate is both the cause of, and the solution to, all of America's problems.

Sound science - taking a beating for 100+ years...

LOL - a friend of mine mentioned this, I didn't believe him (of course) - turns out he was completely correct:

In 1893 , the Supreme Court ruled that the tomato must be considered a vegetable, even though, botanically, it is a fruit. Because vegetables and fruits were subject to different import duties, it was necessary to define it as one or the other. So, tomatoes were declared to be a vegetable given that it was commonly eaten as one.

Who cares what the damn librul scientists say - protectionism (not free market competition) gets to decide such things.

A lollipop to whomever can demonstrate a link to the Bush family...

Next they should declare that Frist is a fruit...even though his brain is a vegetable.
I don't care who you are...that's not funny.
