I have to "laugh" (yes, quotes) regarding BLOTUS' stance on banning flavoured e-cigarettes. He's for it - and says the USDA will be putting out some "very strong recommendations" (insert: eye roll emjoi) at some point in the next few weeks. 

Do not get me wrong. I'm actually with BLOTUS on this - to a degree. 

Tina Fey while on the David Letterman Netflix show called out vapers. She out and out called them "disgusting", which made me laugh, because you know so many in the audience had to be them. 

And having worked in pulmonary medicine, you can easily see the issues that any smoker has - be it electronic or the old fashioned way.  The recent illnesses and single digit deaths certainly signal what could be in store for these companies down the road.  A strong recommendation seems like a 'suggestion' to me. 

Still, do some recent illnesses and single digit deaths now seem to warrant this level of scrutiny?  

Exactly how many school children have been shot to do death?  And fuck, due to all of those kid-murders, no one has even gotten a "very weak recommendation" from this (or any) administration. 

What I can't imagine, how did anyone in this administration not know these comparisons would happen?  If pea-brained bloggers like me can pick up on this, everyone else can. 

Yet these are the less than pea-brains who thought of bringing the Taliban to the U.S. on 9/11, so what the fuck do I know.

As my immediate reaction on hearing this was also the vapers/gun comparison I must qualify as a pea-brainer too. It seems that even requiring a pea-sized brain is too much of a requirement for some.
