Inspection- Lost in the Shallow Rhetoric Matrix Again

The blue pill, or the red pill? As far as I'm concern America is intentionally being kept on the blue pill, kept in a Matrix focused on fear and hate.
  I was at Midtown, a beer and liquor store complex in Nashville, buying supplies for a Music City Homebrewers' Christmas party. As I walked out, bag in hand, a gentleman in military fatigues walked up to me, smelling of alcohol, with dilated pupils. He was obviously on at something. Maybe more than one "something."

Dear FDA,

Thank you for your vigilance regarding food safety. We, the thinking people, will not stand for the cooking and poisoning of raw nuts.
