Illinois and their odd laws
 
Since when, did Pro-grade acid Drain cleaner become a controlled substance? I had to sign my life away to purchase some at my local Ace Hardware today.

That's the Illinois I remember!

Maybe you should ask your old Governor that question. OH WAIT! He's in prison.

Well then maybe you could ask his predecessor. OH WAIT! That Illinois Governor is in prison too.

Well damn!

Is the current Governor on trial for anything yet? You could ask him.

Same thing in Missouri.

More like the idiots that run the ISP and the sheriffs of the counties, along with good old Lisa Madigan. Quinn can hardly find Springfield, let alone show up here for work as he should. Him and everyone else in charge seems to think that Chicago is the capital of the state, and nothing happens outside of Crook & the collar counties.

And the worst part is, I work for the state and can not explain the amount of stupid that comes out of our Cook office that I deal with all day long.

Maybe they can be used to make methamphetamine, like cold syrup (remember when you could actually buy cold syrup without a prescription?).

I did finally get whatever was clogging after plunging, due to the acid did not completely eat it, but I showed whatever was clogging the waste line who was boss.

After 9/11 the fear mongers got all sorts of materials tighter controls.

We have some of the strictest rules on meth making ingredients in the country, but according to the government, the SW Mo. and SE KS area, is the meth producing capitol of the U.S. They need to figure out something else.

Meanwhile, if I have a cold and want a prescription medicine, the cold will be over before I can get into the Dr. in a couple weeks.

Just sit tight another year. If Paul is elected President he will legalize drugs anyway and everyone's worries will be over.

And btw, I just also learned something. Close the drain to the tub when using it. It looks like it exploded all the way into the tub on the first floor. Now the tub is a pretty gross brown etched color. At least we are getting it re-bathed this Summer, so I do not have to worry about it looking like that.

Looks like Ace was getting a leg up on the law that goes in effect on the 1st http://www.pantagraph.com/news/state...871e3ce6c.html That is what I get for our po-dunk newspaper that never prints anything until five weeks after it happens.
