Breaking News: Cigarettes Are Bad For You (via Blog de KingShamus)

Like everyone almost everyone else, I have either used tobacco or had someone else close to me use that filthy product. Like everyone else, I too have been exposed to endless arguments and propaganda against the use of tobacco. The preaching gets tiresome, but there is something much worse. That is politicians using the unpopularity of anything as an excuse for persecution.

Breaking News:  Cigarettes Are Bad For You I dunno if ya’all have been keeping up with current events, so Kathleen Sebelius and the rest of the Team Bammy’s nanny-staters are going to really make sure you blithering idiots understand just how nasty your bad habit is.

  2. The bigger issue is the government wielding power it’s not entitled to. How dare they stipulate the marketing of a product? Will they take over wine or liquor labels next? Show drunks in a ditch? Abused women and children? Will they impose graphic images on Big Mac containers–perhaps show a diabetic with amputated toes? What people don’t seem to get, is that they have targeted tobacco because the majority of people don’t like cigarettes, cigarette smoke, etc. so it’s easy for the government to grant itself new powers over a product that so many find distastefull. But once they have this foothold and have set this precedent–no business, no product is off-limits. We have to defend our civil liberties, even when we find the object of our defense objectionable.
