Forget ISIS. The Fed is saving us from the horror of frosted cookies

August 22, 2014
I said, no fun allowed!

No cookies for you! Eat your kale chips!!

Well, thank God and Nanny State that someone is protecting Ohio’s children from the danger of… brace yourselves, friends… pink-frosted butter cookies!!!

Man, that was close:

New federal nutritional guidelines for school cafeterias has meant the end of a favorite — and locally famous — treat in one northeast Ohio school district.

The federal government’s edict to provide healthier foods and cut fats and cholesterol put an end of the sale of the traditional Elyria pink cookie — a buttery sweet treat with pink icing.

The pink cookie has been a favorite for four decades.

You know, with ISIS and Ukraine and Boko Haram and Chinese fighters buzzing our planes and a rotten economy and… so much else, it’s comforting to know that the United States government is saving us all from a bit too much fat in our diets.

Whew! smiley whew

The horror...

The horror…

Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, Porker of the Month!

July 24, 2010

And she’s a worthy winner, too:

Ms. Kaptur “represents” Ohio’s 9th district. Maybe it’s time the voters there looked for someone who won’t treat the public treasury as her personal piggy bank.


Big FBI raids? Updated!

March 28, 2010

There’s not much detail, but the FBI conducted raids in three states last night, at least one of which involved the Joint Anti-terrorism Task Force:

Federal officials would not say who they were targeting or where, but the FBI has set up a command center at the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department in Ann Arbor (MI), where they have brought in two satellite trucks and a radio tower.

Last time this happened, it was tied to a jihadist plot to murder one of the cartoonists responsible for the Muhammad cartoons and attack the publisher. This time… ?

UPDATE: Homegrown militia troubles?
