I could only make it through the first coupla of comment pages before I couldn't stand to keep reading.
What is wrong with you people? This is a site where we question the MSM, seek out truth and fight against (or discuss fighting against at length)
injustice and loss of liberty.
The war against smoking is wrong on so many levels and that people allow or even fight for the bans is one of reasons I have given up my faith in
people nearly completely.
Firstly, secondhand smoke is NOT harmful to others. These are false studies people. Anti-tobacco lobbyists of all kinds perpetuate these lies which
are just mind-numbingly accepted by the masses. ALL of the studies showing secondhand smoke as being dangerous are either falsely created, manipulated
into "proof" and spun neatly into disinformation that people buy hook, line and sinker because - yeah it doesn't smell good to me so it must be
I want you to think about it for a minute. I, as a smoker, directly inhale a cigarette in entirety 20-30 times every day and have for the last 25
years. Naturally, I'm exposed to the passive smoke around me thanks to myself and friends who smoke. Is it bad for me? yup - to a degree. But, it's
the direct inhaling for years and years and years that's doin' the damage that I suppose is there. However, I've never even had a smoker's cough.
Many a smoker has lived to see 90 years on this planet. Many a smoker never gets cancer. Many a non-smoker DOES get lung cancer. Now why is that?
Because of the pollution that nobody will stand up and cry about that is actually killing you passively. Industrial pollution by the stackload. Smog
and car exhaust - more all the time. Chemicals in your water, your food, your air. Asbestos containing materials are an incredibly understated
current cause of cancer even with it's fame and restrictions. www.medicalnewstoday.com...
Every time you clean with strong petrochemicals, you're doing more damage to your lungs than I have with smoking for weeks. Think about the
radiation, the pesticides. Your eating, drinking, touching, breathing things that will eventually likely cause some form of disease in your lifetime.
And then, you hop in a vehicle and take the biggest chance of death into your hands on a daily basis.
The corporations and health insurance giants don't want you to blame these things. It's an active and incredibly successful campaign so far as well.
People just go along with it because they don't like the way it smells and/or maybe they had a relative that died of cancer "from smoking" and it
creates a sensitive touchstone for them.
What they are proposing in Oregon is a disgusting form of prohibition and control - not a measure of goodwill towards the community. Consider agenda.
How often is it truly for the health benefits of the people? Hint - it's about money. Open your eyes.
