European Union Now Says Water DOES NOT Prevent Dehydration. Yes, Really...
Talk to leftists about Brexit, and they'll tell you it was about xenophobia and you're an Islamophobe for even asking. Talk to people who actually have a clue, and they'll tell you Brexit was about an unelected bureaucracy enforcing regulations on its citizens. A kind of bureaucracy we in America would never tolerate. Even though leftists in this country love repressive regulations.
Here's an example of a ridiculous one from said unelected bureaucracy in Brussels. The EU passed a ban on water bottle companies...from saying that water prevents dehydration.
EU officials concluded that, following a three-year investigation, there was no evidence to prove the previously undisputed fact.
Producers of bottled water are now forbidden by law from making the claim and will face a two-year jail sentence if they defy the edict, which comes into force in the UK next month.
Okay. Does someone want to tell me what does prevent dehydration if water doesn't? Because maybe I've been doing it wrong for all these years. Is it coffee? Wine? Beer? The mother's milk of a Himalayan yak?
Of course not. Water keeps people hydrated. It keeps the world hydrated. I've seriously never read anything so stupid in my entire life.
The Brexit campaign is making a lot more sense, isn't it?
Last night, critics claimed the EU was at odds with both science and common sense. Conservative MEP Roger Helmer said: “This is stupidity writ large.
“The euro is burning, the EU is falling apart and yet here they are: highly-paid, highly-pensioned officials worrying about the obvious qualities of water and trying to deny us the right to say what is patently true.
“If ever there were an episode which demonstrates the folly of the great European project then this is it.”
Agree. I agree times a million bajillion. But here's an added piece of commentary: telling people wet water doesn't prevent dehydration is a perfect analogy for bureaucracy. Overly paid people, who've likely never held real jobs (jobs which operate on the generation of cash, not taxpayer-funded gigs) sitting in a giant taxpayer-funded room, thinking up stupid sh!t to pass onto the same taxpayers who funded their rooms and their jobs so that these turdbrains could think up this stupid sh!t. It's a vicious fecal cycle of suck. Needs to stop. Also, watch UK's Nigel Farage Blasting the EU over #Brexit. Because that crap is amazing.
And so the UK said, yep, this crazy train? We're jumping off. Thanks but no thanks, you dimwitted purveyors of human dumpster fires.
Side note, is it too late to get Nigel Farage to run for President here? This guy is quickly becoming my new hero.
