miss diminutive: Probably not, said Ruth Malone, editor-in-chief of the scientific journal Tobacco Control."In our culture, we tend to think we have a right to things even if they're terrible for us," she said.You can take my triple fudge red velvet cake from my cold dead hands, Ruth.
Chach: I'm not not licking toads.
phenn: We do. That's right. You see, according to *Cacteau's* plan. *I'm* the enemy. Because I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, freedom of choice. I'm the kind if guy who would sit in the greasy spoon and think "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the big rack of Barbecued spare ribs with the side order of gravy fries?" I *want* high cholesterol. I want to eat bacon, butter and buckets of cheese alright? I want to smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinatti in a non-smoking section. I wanna run around naked with green jell-o all over my body reading a Playboy magazine. Why? Because maybe I feel the need to okay pal? I've *seen* the future, you know what it is. It's made by a 47 year-old virgin in gray pajamas soaking in a bubble bath, drinking a broccoli milkshake and thinking "I'm an Oscar-Meyer Wiener". You wanna live on top, you gotta live Cacteau's way. What he wants, when he wants, how he wants. Your other option: come down here, maybe starve to death.
Pangea: FTA: "I can't accept that we're just allowing these numbers to trickle down," he said, in a recent interview with the AP. "We believe we have the public health tools to get us to the zero level."Why? Prohibition in all forms has always proven to be a disaster.Kids are increasingly not starting smoking. Focus on that, rather than trying to take away one of the few things people view as pleasurable.Let insurance companies charge a smoking surcharge if it really costs more to provide healthcare for smokers, and move onto more pressing issues.
WhiskeySticks: So they went ahead and banned flavored cigarettes a few years back, yet kept menthol.I still fail to see why menthol wasn't included in the ban.
varmitydog: Winston short tips are six dollars a pack down at the local mini-mart. They get them in by the case and they sell out. To dirt poor rural folks.Zero level my ass.
Deep Contact: Less people are dying from cough, cough, smoking related illness because most of our heavy industry has been wiped out.
vwarb: Another day, another person trying to tell me what I'm allowed to put into my own body./pipe smoker since I was 16, not much into cigarettes.
whosits_112: vwarb: Another day, another person trying to tell me what I'm allowed to put into my own body./pipe smoker since I was 16, not much into cigarettes.Smoking pipes since 16? You must be one sophisticated muthaf*cka/The snifter of brandy was at 17, right?
debug: I wonder where they will make up all that lost tax revenue...
vwarb: whosits_112: vwarb: Another day, another person trying to tell me what I'm allowed to put into my own body./pipe smoker since I was 16, not much into cigarettes.Smoking pipes since 16? You must be one sophisticated muthaf*cka/The snifter of brandy was at 17, right?I suppose that phrasing does sound a bit arrogant, considering I'm only in my mid twenties. I switched to a pipe when taxes on cigarettes went up. Cheaper and tastes better. Never understood the idea that it's "sophisticated."
EvilAvatar: Good. Keep your disgusting, fowl smelling addiction in your own home. Sick of having to hold my breath to walk into a building or deal with addicts throwing their butts/packaging out the car windows. Your habit causes cancer in other people, but feel free to wave that 'Don't tread on me' flag around like someone is taking away your basic freedoms, because we all know how oppressed you are when you have to walk a hundred steps to the designated addict spot to get your fix. Oh, and by the way, maybe after you are done with your 5th smoke break of the day at the office, and all the non-smokers are plugging away because they aren't compelled to go inhale tar, you could thank them for picking up your slack./goddamn right I'm mad//flame on - come at me bros
tcaptain: Oh you mean cigarettes?Phew! I thought I'd have to give up delicious, delicious ribs!/yes I'm fat//why do you ask?
