I see several digs here, at the LSDM (Lame Stream Dinosaur Media), the FDA, and the SJWs.
Wow. Are the Libtards that stoopid that the ‘toons just write themselves?
As for vaping, is the FDA going after it because it hasn’t been taxed to death enough already? Need to squeeze just that little bit more money?
And since when was the last time “facts” and “media” ever been uttered together without satire?
Reading into that link to Roosh is educational if not surprising…
My opinion…vaping stinks to high heaven. A freshly lit cigarette smells good (I have never smoked), a good cigar is nice, a pipe brings back memories of my dad but vaping. Eat a pineapple don’t smoke it.
They actually work well for costuming and dramatics, especially if the character smokes, but the actor doesn’t…you can get nicotine-free vaping fluid…
Various states are complaining that the Big Tabakky profits necessary to fund the Master Settlement agreement have been undercut by the success of don’t smoke/stop smoking campaigns, smokers shifting to smokeless tobacco, and the rise of vaping. And the loss of tax revenue from quitters and vapers.
No problem! All that our Bee-Luvved Gummint needs to do is list everyone who has quit smoking and tax them for the money they’d have been paying if they were still smoking.
For every penny the “big” tobacco earns the Feds and states make a Dime….
Just who will end down on the lower levels in Hell? Honest pimps of sin or the slime/revenuers that profit 10 X for addicts.
If smoking is bad, isn’t building layers of Government that depend upon “Sin” taxes immoral in everyone’s moral logic box?
Hell! Just Nuke ’em ’til they glow. And shoot ’em in the dark!
First time I heard that, it was about Libya in the ’80s after the airline bombings.
Just wait. The totally lit Govt will pass a law that everyone, including the dead (since they vote Demoncritter anyway) has to buy a carton of cigarettes every week in order for them to waste more of our money.
Everything is a crisis. It validates their obsessions.
The American government wants you to quit smoking, it’s a vile, dangerous habit that is costing taxpayers many, many dollars in federal funding to combat.
“Sir, something new has come along and it’s helping people quit, and you only have to buy one once instead of packs of them at a time”
“Oh nooooo our revenue! BAN THEM!”
My God, mam. If the Americans got off tobacco, it might lead them to getting off drugs. Then, beside the continuing financial rape of the USA, where would the big banks get their funding? My God man. It would be like The Boxers throwing out drugs in China during the Boxer Rebellion. “They” already had to suffer through one Boxer Rebellion, letting another one get away from them would be intolerable. My God, man! They won’t let this stand! My God, man! What next?
You’ll probably notice that the crew who continually hammers tobacco and vaping and would gladly feed smokers to the lions are the same ones who are all about smoking pot and legalizing marijuana.
The latter makes people easier to control, murders their ambition, and makes them less likely to raise complaints.
Just wait til they discover that pot is more heavily taxed that tobacco ever was.
Follow the money…it’s all about the money (vaping not raping).
I dunno I try to be libertarian, but do we really need another form of drug addiction?
“…do we really need…”
You don’t want to get slidin’ down that slope, Brother.
Need’s got nothing to do with it.
Still, as P. Scandi says…
“Follow the money…always follow the money.”
When it comes to things gov, money and power (redundant) is always the answer; *Deep Throat knew it, and it’s the now as it’s ever been. And to the degree that it can be shown that there is public expenditure incurred by any consumer product, tax it to pay the taxpayers back…but of course that’s not their true motivation.
*Hal Holbrook as DT made that quote famous, and he played a helluva part. He visited our burg years ago on his Mark Twain tour, he was outstanding in that too. After the show we went to the local Village Inn restaurant and there he was in a back booth alone. We left him alone then but when he was checking out he asked for the cashier for directions to West Palm Beach so I stepped in and gave him the best route and my son (now 32, then maybe 10 or so) asked for his autograph on a napkin. He smiled and signed it, and walked out and got in his rental car and headed in the direction I told him. Son has that napkin framed, and the guy is still one of my favorite actors, very low key and underplayed; I like that.
If you go to his website http://www.returnofkings.com, it has some really interesting and HIGHLY PC articles, mostly because they are truthful and contradictory to the garbage being pushed by SJW, Feminazis, and progressives.
His thesis is pretty simple…modern Western women have been lied to by feminazis and have been told that men are the enemy, disposable, and should be trashed as much as possible.
Career comes first, cuz you can always have kids when YOU are ready in your 30s and 40s. As anyone with half a brain can tell you this is a lie, which is why fertility doctors make so much money.
Morever, Western women have more money, education, independence, and freedom than ever and are MORE UNHAPPY? Why? Well Roosh says that’s because women can’t REALLY have it all (DUH) and by pushing away decent men (but having endless meaningless sex with bad boys–like Skye does..Chris is a prophet ahead of his time :), women are pushing away their chances for a husband and children and are faced with ending up alone in a house full of cats wondering where their youth and beauty went…while staring at their corporate awards from a company that cast them aside for a younger model.
Take a look…it makes me supremely glad that 28 years ago I married a traditionally raised Catholic girl that became an awesome military wife and then dedicated her life to taking care of our severely disabled daughter until she died two years ago…now my wife is working and I can definitely state that it sucks, but is necessary..no wonder working women are so unhappy.
However, dating in the 21st century would truly scare the crap out of me…if you don’t get accused of rape, you will wonder which notch on her bed post you are and how many anti-depressents she’s on…
Rant over…carry on….
Read Aaron Clarey’s “Captain Capitalism” series of essays on “Do Western Women Deserve Western Men”. (Used to have an advert spot here, if I remember correctly)
( this is tongue in check) Legalize Prostitution…. Then tax it ,,, It should be a good income stream for the gov’ment… Of course you might get some complaints from the attorneys in the divorce industry…. LOL
Grunt GI ;:::: Thank you for your service and the sacrifices you AND your wife made.
