I gotta rant!

Stupid is an understatement...

Monday, April 25, 2016 by Uvah | Discussion: Life, the Universe and Everything

I just saw a report watching nbc news. Its about the laundry pods used to do laundry. They're brightly colored and look like big candies. Ergo...children love candy and these pods are very tempting. Two deaths...several comas... and a few cardiac arrests later doctors say that you should use traditional detergents, make sure the zip lock bags they come in and actually zipped and to keep all detergents out of the reach of children. My question is this......

Why the hell don't the powers that be suggest/force these companies to make then less enticing/tempting for children. Adults can read, they know what they're getting and hopefully comprehend what they're reading. But for whatever reason these things just keep on happening. When are people going to learn a little common sense. It appears that common sense may be an alien concept to them. Either that or they just don't give a damn.

Rant over

That is the only way he can get a rise anymore. Hope that chair doesn't stop till it's on the Moon.

With all the other things in the news about parents, i.e. a husband and wife found passed out in their car from being drunk with a 4 year old in the back seat here in Indiana. Kids shooting themselves with a parents gun, twice in the last month! You name it! It is NOT a companies fault, it is not the product, it is about STUPID, DUMBASS, IDIOTIC, BRAINLESS, WITLESS human beings that have no right to even create a child! 

Some people should flat out have their children taken away from them! Use of common sense seems to be lacking within the entire human race nowadays! Just my personal opinion.

What this guy said. Parents should take the blame 100% if something like that happens to their kids at home.

Just what the moon needs...another crater.

Not the first time he's visited, though...lotsa craters there...

Totally agree. Absentee, lazy parenting, is whats going on. Open house for a school in my town with 200 students saw about 50 parents show up. Most were single parents.
