Free Taco Bell Taco?

If Taco Bell wants to give “every” USer in USerland a taco for each World Series stolen base what kind of taco will they give vegetarians and vegans? Since I do not visit fast food franchises will they send my taco to my home? Will it be warm? Since I do not eat such crap can I ask that my free taco be sent to a kitchen that feeds those in need? Come on Taco Bell, make an offer that will benefit someone other than the overfed populous of our overweight country. And… the offer lasts “until supplies last”. Supplies of tacos?

I am not voting for Taco Bell.

Michelle Leonhart needs to go far far away. She has reversed herself as any good politician. Under GOP (Grand Ostrich [head in the sand] Party) pressure she is caving in on DEA’s earlier statement concerning hands-off medicinal pot and patients. The pharmaceuticals must be paying her, too.
