Let's see the Government has saved and redeemed the millions of little boys and girls raped and molested by Priests, so now it's time to move onto the next scourge that's plauging the youngsters these days: FLAVORED CIGARETES.
"These flavored cigarettes are a gateway for many children and young adults to become regular smokers," FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg said Tuesday in a statement."
Yes, we must save the children. But, is there any evidence that this strategy will work ? Will the little tykes just start firing up Camels instead ?
First off, I don't smoke any of the horrid chemically laden cardboard crap anyway. But, then I don't drink Budweiser Beer or wine, and for the same reason. But is it my business that people actually buy and maybe read PLAYBOY or HUSTLER magazine ? Real women aren't that ugly and plastic...
"Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death in this country, killing about 443,000 people a year, including 49,000 from secondhand exposure, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."
Really, now. And of those 443,000 preventable deaths; alcohol, donuts and fried food wasn't a factor ? Water and Air pollution wasn't a factor ? (It is.) And, 49,000 were killed off by second hand smoke, that's more people than killed by drunken drivers and handguns combined. So why aren't cigarettes illegal ? Why is Alcohol illegal ? Why aren't cars banned ? In fact, TV's and video games are going to kill more of those little fatties sitting around doing nothing for a 100 hours a week, not moving, not thinking.
What's the real deal ? Follow the MONEY ! "It's all about the economy, STUPID !"
"The three biggest U.S. tobacco companies say they do not produce any flavored cigarettes other than menthol varieties."
GOD BLESS AMERIKA, I LOVE BIG BROTHER
