Gov't in my face again!

I placed a simple order for an over-the-counter antacid: Prilosec from an online store only to be told that they "cannot ship it to the VI due to trade restrictions." They could however ship the other stuff I ordered like Bayer aspirin, Pepto Bismol, etc.
So, like the medications that I have to get online, have it shipped to my family's home to be shipped to me here.

When is the US Gov't gonna get out of people's lives with their silly a** rules and regs?

It's ok that I can get online and place an order from China (Beijing) use my credit card and get whatever it is I'm ordering sent to the VI, but not a over-the-counter antacid from the US. What crap!

Just once before I die, I would love it if the dysfunctional, corrupt, crappy, good-for-nothing gov't would just stay the hell out of my life!!!!!!!

I order generic Prilosec regualry from CVS, Never had a problem.

On the other hand when I last ordered a generic version of Advogard from Canada Pharmacy a got a warning label attached by the FDA who inspected the package to tell me that in the future I would have to order the brand name product or risk having my order confiscated.

The brand name costs 30% more.
