Cola Wars and The Loony Lefties.
The recent report by CSE on colas having excessive amounts of pesticides and other possibily harmful substances has had a wide and varied response. From several states banning the colas in schools and colleges to government of kerala banning it completely in the state. The irony being, the communists are those who gave the permission to setup the plant in the first place are now the loudest voices calling for the ban!
What’s more weird is that, CSE openly admits that everyday food items like vegetables and milk has even more pesticides than colas. They even have a technical word for it, “nutrition-poison” trade-off. The weird thing is, if you can trade off nutrition to poison (which is crazy in its own right), then why can’t you trade off anything else for poison? Getting high-poison trade off in the case of smoking and liquor.
The loony lefties have outdone themselves again by being too clever by half. The commies who banned colas becuase of the alleged poison-nutrition trade off have kept “BEVCO” a government owned liquor distribution company open. For those who seem to champion the causes of the people, the sure are sending the wrong messages.
So for all those budding politicians here is a tip on making national policy, listen carefuly to what the left is saying and do exactly the opposite.
Signing off (disgusted and bitter at the government and loony lefties),
