Like it or not admit it or not lets face how i clearly remember myself and many other people walking around inside our local big chain grocery and retail stores and restaurants and everywhere else as well while smoking cigarettes while shopping and dining while snuffing them out right on the floors of the store and nobody ever said anything negative about it like wow damn think about that and realize those happier days were not so long ago before the royal bloodline elite powers that be started inflicting their nazi spawned and greed driven fear and paranoia lies and mind control games upon you and i their robotic tax slaves whos withering freedoms are also being ruthlessly snuffed the f##k out...
Like it or not admit it or not lets face how there are massive amounts of deadly poisons that we are constantly breathing in that we are continuously absorbing through our skin that we are constantly getting sick from that we are continuously dying from the hundreds of millions of cars and trucks and airplanes driving and flying all around us constantly spewing out carbon monoxide and who knows what the hell else along with factory waste and radioactive nuclear reactors and crop dusting and microwaves and pesticide sprays and aerosols ect ect ect...
Quote: THE LIE - Most people approve and support smoking bans.
THE TRUTH - Most people who do not smoke really don't care one way or the other about the smoking issue. It is only a very small but well funded group of smoke haters who want to see these ban invoked. When these bans are ultimately passed and the true effect of them is fully realized, then people start to speak out against them. In New York a poll was taken to see how the people felt about the ban. 86% of those polled stated the ban went way too far. At this point in time there is reason to expect the New York may be rescinded in part or in full sometime in 2005.
THE LIE - Cigarette smoke and Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS) or Second Hand Smoke (SHS) Causes cancer.
THE Truth - Simply stated there is no known cause for any type of cancer. With all the testing that has been done with every type of chemical, gas, inert matter, and substances that have been altered through exposure to heat or chemical reaction, nothing has been proven to cause cancer. NOTHING! In some instances specific substances, in massive quantities, have been administered to laboratory rats. In these cases many of the animals might have developed a cancer. These sorts of tests may be considered Junk Science in that they have no relationship to a real life scenario.
THE LIE - The desire for smoking bans is a grass roots movement.
THE TRUTH - Smoking bans have almost exclusively been started by organizations such as The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, A.S.H., the Heart, Cancer, and Lung Organizations and major pharmaceutical corporations. Over one billion dollars, from the Master Tobacco Settlement has funded the activities of many of these organizations for the past 5 years. Promoting smoking bans is big business for these organizations, especially the drug companies who are reaping huge profits on their almost worthless smoking cessation products.
THE LIE - Smoking statistics do not lie.
THE TRUTH - In this World there are lies, damn lies, and statistics. Never has an argument been won based on statistic alone. They can serve only as a point of departure. In a free and open society people must be allowed to operate as free agents without the fetters of the doomsayers. Life is a risk, but it is that risk which gives it zest. When we allow ourselves to sacrifice our freedoms for the sake of safety, we deserve neither safety nor freedom. Accepting statistics at face value will lead us down that garden path. There are many statistics that can be cited that make the danger of smoking seem mild by comparison.
