I'm also going to walk down the street in nothing but old krusty underware. It's legal, no law against it. If people don't like looking at my sweaty blob of a torso and my streachmarks well then their fasicsts and aholes.

I rather see the smokers' true criminal character come to life to show how they don't care about human life to the generations to come.
The 30% of willing to not quit-stubborn gas passers is only about 1.4 million people.
Sorry, the 1.4 million air breathingly challenged can't hold up to the 298 million other people in the U.S. in votes or in a fight.

You know, I have a pet conspiracy theory about this.
In the late 40’s, early 50’s of the last century the government was setting off nukes in the atmosphere on a regular basis. Then they realized how dangerous it was and started conducting underground nuke tests. They had one problem though; all the radiation they had already pumped into the atmosphere with their tests. They knew there would be allot of unexplained cancers in the civilian population. They came up with a plan.
The Surgeon General announced that cigarettes caused cancer. That way when the lung cancers spiked it could be blamed on smoking and as it trailed off that could be accredited to the decline in smoking.
It was brilliant.
Notice you didn’t get the cancer spike in France or Japan, which are far more smoker friendly countries.
I have absolutely nothing to back this up except my wild imagination and extreme paranoia against all forms of controlling governments.

I think I may have to go do some research, not that I'm saying
your lieing, but, well I like to do reseach.
