Listerine Obit.

9/1/16  11:30  Jim's Rant For The Day.   Listerine Obit.

I grew up in a house with an eleven member family in it. My father was a real control freak over us kids when it came to not getting sick. He forbade it knowing one cold could infect the entire brood. If one of us came home with a cold all the rest had to gargle each morning with Listerine mouthwash because it advertised itself to prevent colds. Supper may have been a little lean some evenings but we always had a large bottle of half used Listerine as well as a full backup bottle in the bathroom. When Listerine lost a lawsuit in 1976 it started publishing a disclaimer that it did not prevent colds. I never saw another bottle in that home again. Nothing was ever said about it; it just was.

Michael Rivero keeps saying that, “the last official act of a collapsing government is to loot the people”. But what is the last official act of a dying industry, such as the buggy whip factories? How about the news industry? Now that one I believe I can help you with. If it's a newspaper, it publishes it's own obituary. And that is exactly what the New York Post did in an article yesterday. They published an obit for the entire Main Street news industry!

That Post editorial basically said that by their in your face attempt to force Hillary on the people they destroyed all of their own standards and set them up so that their businesses will all die after the election due to distrust. WOW! What a statement from the first to break ranks from the insanity. I don't feel sorry for them as they chose to go in that direction in the first place. The ones I feel sorry for are all the current and recent Journalism majors who are taught what was but ain't no mo'.
