Take your stinking paws off my Cheerios!

Taxes are bad enough, but now the government is going after Cheerios. The FDA is now claiming that Cheerios is a drug.

According to a letter from the FDA General Mills’ advertising violates the federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. The agency said claims that Cheerios ingredients can lower cholesterol within a certain amount of time, all while providing cancer-fighting and heart-healthy benefits, essentially makes Cheerios “a drug” by their definition. And no drug in this country can be legally marketed without an approved new drug application.

These people should be laughed into the nut house, not given the authority to control what we eat or take more of our money in taxes.

Maybe Tea Party 2.0 should be renamed the Cheerios Party. I’ll bring some Honey Nut ones to share.
