Nazi-style Tobacco-control !!

Michigan will be the next state to ban smoking indoors in bars & restaurants, beginning May 2010. Don't forget that the Nazis (National Socialists) were the first to begin anti-smoking campaigns.

Here's how the Nazis like Michigan's Jennifer Granholm take control.

First, raise the taxes of tobacco to 300%, even if abortions cause more cancer than smoking (yet to be proven, but there is strong evidence), and of course there are many other things that give cancer that are not taxed, but anyways. . .

Second, make mandatory Fire Safe Cigarettes (FSC, above the barcode) which are chemicals not tested for safety themselves, and have had major complaints ignored. They add stuff like glue to cigarettes, and dare to put the word "safe", but anyways . . .

Third, ban smoking in privately-owned bars & restaurants, which is a decision that should be up to the owner of the establishment. An owner of a bar in a "free country" like America should be able to allow smoking, and if a non-smoker doesn't like it, they can leave, but anyways. . .

Fourth (Reich), there was no public vote, because Michigan has a very high smoking rate (especially in bars, it's probably 90%) and it wouldn't have passed a majority vote of the public, at least not if exposed as what it is: A limit on freedom, but anyways. . .

This is not a democracy or a republic; this is Nazi-style socialism. It's creeping in, and so many are being brainwashed that they join the new Nazi-party without even realizing it.

First they came for the unborn, and I did not speak out—because I was not an unborn;
Then they came for the smokers, and I did not speak out—because I was not a smoker;
Then they came for the obese, and I did not speak out—because I was not obese;
Then they came for the elderly, and I did not speak out—because I was not elderly;
Then they came for the religious, and I did not speak out—because I was not religious;
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Our founding fathers are crying in their graves, those old hemp & tobacco growing guys, those raw milk drinkers (oh, and raw milk is being persecuted as well, along with any natural foods). . . We are being destroyed from the inside!

I really love America, but we need to stop these atrocities. If America isn't free anymore, there is little hope for the rest of the world.

I just want to point something out.......

Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) was a smoker from 1897 - 1924, and had typical smoker symptoms. To refute that fact, a recently-invented myth is being circulated by tobacco apologists that he was a non-smoker! Over a half century after his death, this myth has been invented by people with an axe to grind. They hope that the truth has been forgotten, they hope people will buy into their disinformation....SNIP*

And this:

When Adolf was a boy age eight, about 1897, the same year Iowa and Tennessee were banning cigarettes, he was in school in Lambeck. And because Germans believed in the so-called right to smoke, tobacco was widespread, little Adolf saw adults smoke, setting a bad example. He unfortunately followed their example, himself became a smoker. Yes, little Adolf was smoking. Smoking at age 8! In school even! This is a matter of public record!

Just saying, that "Little Chimney" had a smoke in his mouth for many years, and it was never banned in Germany.
He did try to stop the advertising of them, and he did ban officers from smoking in uniform and out.

But Nazi-style tobacco control is a bit harsh. We can't blame them for everything.

EDIT: To add this......

It seems that Hitler was a smoker in his youth but at some stage he became aware of its health hazards and, when in power (perhaps with the zeal of a convert), appeared to detest tobacco, which he called "the wrath of the Red Man against the White Man, vengeance for having been given hard liquor." But the antismoking campaign reflected "a national political climate stressing the virtues of racial hygiene and bodily purity" as well as the Fuhrer's personal prejudices. The same could be said of Nazi efforts to discourage drinking and encourage a better diet.

The state performer in antismoking propaganda was Adolf Hitler. As one magazine put it: "brother national socialist, do you know that our Führer is against smoking and think that every German is responsible to the whole people for all his deeds and emissions, and does not have the right to damage his body with drugs?"

I think bars should just ignore the law in this instance. If enough private bars did this they would just scrap the law. It's a bunch of crap to ban smoking in bars. If you want a non smoking bar, make one. Otherwise don't punish taxpayers for your lifestyle choice.
