Four blue pills. Viagra.

"Take one of these. You'll love it," the officer said. Compliments of Uncle Sam.

Now allow me to add a few of my comments on this subject..............

If you give cash for information they say the recipient will go out and purchase something flashy there by bringing attention to the family that they are when the wife shows up pregnant with child will the bad guys know the husband is a snitch or just virile. The word is out now that the Post has posted knowledge of this, so now what does the CIA use as a information gathering tool.........Hershey Bars?

We could go on about this now couldn't we.........I wanna hear what Jay Leno says on the subject. Maybe he will have the person that came up with this idea on his show as a guest.
