Appreciate the link to our post about the Happy Meal toy grabbers on the Left Coast! Just posted another story about the Happy Meal toy ban originator in Santa Clara County targeting smokers in their own homes: http://bit.ly/nonannystate32Keep up the great work!NSLF
I don't think the government dolts understand what they do if they pass this. Can you say... collectors? As well, 'kids' LOVE this kind of stuff. Plan on increases in smoking. Actually, I might (seriously) buy my past favorite brand (Marlboro) to get all of the different labels. Not a for profit collection, and I only chew, smoke pipe or cigars (and hopeful to get a hookah before long, but the neat ones can be spendy).Just saying. I hope they come out on chewing tobacco too, actually. Yeah, okay, I was a little Goth before there was such a thing and 'sick' habits die hard... like me. Ouch, somehow in there.
The true need for "warning labels" should come with anything that pushes big government socialism on America:http://www.leftcoastrebel.com/2010/11/graphic-government-warnings.html
Doom, ROFLMFAO. Wouldn't it be great to see a spike in cigarette sales? When I saw the autopsy pics, I was thinking why do an autopsy if they knew lung disease from cigs had killed the guy?Then I thought with everybody being an amateur coroner as a result of the many CSI franchises, someone could come up with up with a "What Really This Guy?" promotion.This is gonna be great.
I see from your job description that you know about me and all the gremlins like me. When the government becomes Mommy, it ought to be ready to be called Mother and having everything it says turned on it's ear. Oh, and then there is Dad. There is no mother without father, and he does what he does, call it what you will.Anyway, yep, I do expect to see smoking alarmism to go the way of the green dragon. Up in... well... smoke. A hail of smoke? Heh. (By the way, my mother did hate me often, still does... and loves me for that? Something to do with attitude and risk assessment. Uhrm, but you knew that?) *grins*
If they're going to spend so much money on these warnings, they could've at least studied human nature a bit first. It would've been much more effective to have pictures of cars, TVs, and vacation spots, to let the smokers know what they're missing with the money they're wasting. Yup, sadly, money > health.
My mother grew up in a household where her father smoked like as chimney. This had such a devastating impact on her long term health that we are concerned that there is a slight chance she may not make it to the age of ninety. She's 88 as I write this
