Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) appears to be a man with way too much time on his hands. Either that, or he has grown temporarily bored with promoting the disproven conspiracy theories of Russian hacking.
Something is obviously amiss. What other explanation can there be for the Senator’s recent ridiculous campaign to force the FDA to begin regulating chocolate?
Schumer launched his initiative on Saturday in order to enlist the FDA in a fight to regulate “snortable chocolate” powder that is being used by some in clubs for euphoria and energy.
Schumer specifically targeted products like Coco Loko whose product is marketed as raw cacao snuff. The product includes powder that is made from raw cacao beans which contain caffeine.
Coco Loko also specifically contains other substances including taurine, guarana and ginkgo biloba.
While informing consumers of a potential risk if it exists is by no means a bad thing, it’s obvious that Schumer is simply following the same path as fellow idiot Jeff Sessions in promoting yet another extension to the drug war. Either that or his obsession compulsion with regulating, taxing, banning and bombing has become an actual psychosis.
Don’t believe me? Here’s a brief list of things that Chuck Schumer has tried to ban:
Green laser pointers
25-to-Life (a video game)
Alcoholic energy drinks
In his diatribe against the scary chocolate Schumer stated, “I can’t think of a single parent who thinks it is a good idea for their children to be snorting over-the-counter stimulants up their noses. This suspect product has no clear health value.”
Of course, dying in the foreign wars Schumer supports has no clear health benefit either, but given the fact that Schumer wants to join Jeff Sessions in intensifying the drug war, it would be safe to say that Schumer does not have a clear grasp as to what has a health benefit and what does not.
The question is not whether parents want their children snorting chocolate, the question is whether adults have the right to do so. Many parents wouldn’t want their children pimping themselves out to Wall St. and Israel and acting as a ventriloquist dummy for every special interest with an open wallet. But nobody’s trying to ban Chuck Schumer.
