Barry O'Blimey has declared his Righteous credentials as a rabid antismoker. Another one forced to quit who now wants to inflict his personal vendetta on the rest of us.
'We've always known that the fight to stop smoking in this country won't be easy,' the president says.
This man was a smoker until recently. He has 'been declared tobacco-free' with all the sinister connotations and links to illegal drugs that conjures.Now he is One of Them and hates all those people he used to laugh and joke with outside while having a smoke.
When did this 'fight to stop America smoking' become his fight? Why, when he was forced to stop because it is no longer seemly for the man who is allegedly the highest authority in the land to take his own decisions concerning his lifestyle. And if he can't have his own life, neither can anyone else. Just like the Cleggeron over here.
The article concerns the tobacco companies' objections to the graphic warning labels on the basis that it will harm their brand image. Those companies don't seem to have grasped the obvious, in that all the labels are either unproven or are downright lies. The labels require those companies to lie to their customers which in any other circumstance would get the company prosecuted.
They include one claiming that second hand smoke causes lung disease in nonsmokers, with no requirement for any evidence to back it up. Just as well since there isn't any. The fake lung is there again, the 'dead smoker' which is an actor lying down and might not even be a smoking actor, and which implies that nonsmokers never die. The 'smoker wearing an oxygen mask' which is another actor wearing an oxygen mask, and which implies that nonsmokers never get heart attacks or strokes. 'Meth mouth' makes its appearance as if it was due to smoking once more. Lies, supported now by the President himself.
Nonsmokers and antismokers might not care, but these are blatant lies put forth as if there was a shred of evidence to back them up. If he can support such lies without a qualm, what else is his administration lying about? Or don't you care about that either? Well, I'm not in the USA and am not likely to be, so at voting time it'll be up to you. You decide. You can vote in a lying control freak if you like. I don't mind. We have our own to deal with over here.
There is an increasing trend to refer to 'smokers' in these articles as though we are a separate species. If we are not human then we are not subject to taxation and not constrained by human laws. Which is it, antismokers? Which would you like? We'll let you choose. You can come back with 'Well then you can't use the NHS' if you want, but do try to remember that the NHS has already declared it doesn't want us. Heroin addicts who pay no tax, fine, no problem. Smokers who have paid extra tax, no, we've got your money now get lost.
Economies in freefall, war breaking out all over the place, energy prices out of control and energy generation on the verge of collapse because of Green meddling, and Western governments are piddling around with controlling a little bit of leaf in a paper tube.Of all the things they could prioritise, dehumanising a whole section of their population is number one on the list.
Who votes for these people? And who wakes them up in the morning? Please stop.
It's been said that in parts of the UK, you could put a Labour or Tory rosette on a donkey and it would win the seat. I say, let's try it. The donkey couldn't possibly be worse and would very likely be an enormous improvement.
I'd vote for it.
