I see that there is a phone number for gambling addicts to call. It is announced or displayed on casino advertisements around here. I'm sure it is government-mandated for them to put it into their ads. Can't have people doing things that might harm them, you know.

So how long til McDonald's and Burger King are required to give Weight Watchers' contact info along with their advertising? Ha ha. I know. Weight Watchers isn't a government anti-eating program, so it will never be mandated.

Still, it makes me wonder. Why can't we start a "Voter's Anonymous" program for those addicted to the delusion that voting changes anything that really needs changing? Or a place for those addicted to government to go for help. Hmmm. I already did that: It is hard to help those who don't want to be helped. They'll keep fighting off the life-preservers, but we'll keep tossing them back.
