Yes, the title says it all.

Now, I'm not usually one to jump on the blame the White House wagon as many here are want to do when something doesn't fit with his or her partisan
beliefs and when it involves other parts of government, but this is just crazy.
A collection of U.S. postage stamps encouraging kids to play sports and lead active lifestyles was recalled after White House officials deemed the
activities involved, like skateboarding and cannonballing into a swimming pool, unsafe, according to a postal service official.
They're freakin' STAMPS!! Kids don't use them too often, either, or have much to do with mail in general, so WTH is this all about. Oh, no, a
canonball is dangerous, PULL THE STAMPS! Isn't swimming dangerous??? HELLO, drowning!!
What about exercise? You could pull a muscle or sprain something!
The stamps deemed unsafe by federal officials included . . . doing a handstand without wearing a helmet.
Oh crap, they're batting without a helmet! Call the DFCS!
ALL of those can be considered unsafe in some way or another. Climbing a rope? You could fall and break a leg (or a neck). Cartwheels? You could break
am arm or leg. Soccer? Get kicked in the shin...ETC.
Thank you momma state for preventing me from considering something that might hurt myself if I don't pay attention, which can be practically
anything. Better not walk up or down stairs, you could fall.
This is just stupid. They're stamps, and now these stamps are just sitting there. A waste of money.
