Just when it seemed the Justice Department was hot on big tobacco's tail, it caught a case of cold feet. First it reduced from $130 billion to $10 billion the amount it wants the industry to cough up for smoking-cessation programs. Then its own witnesses came forward to say that department lawyers tried to get them to soften their testimony in the landmark fraud case.
For five decades they conspired to help us kill ourselves. But never mind. The overseer of the government's case is now Associate Attorney General Robert D. McCallum Jr., who happens to have once been a partner in an Atlanta law firm representing R.J. Reynolds.
The real question is, why would the government who LOVES big corporations try to hurt one of the biggest in America? It's got me puzzled.

And those anti tobacco ads are an even bigger joke, given they are funded by Big Tobacco to try and hoodwink folks into thinking they are the good guys.
And no matter what any politician EVER tells you to the contrary, this is what they mean...
I LOVE pharmo profits, illegal immigration, outsourcing, taxes, porn AND young people smoking.
I work for them, not you. Bite me.
Oh, and 'Family Values,' praise Jesus and buy defense stocks. Baby needs a new pair of fake boobs.
