Isn't the [Unlikely] tag more appropriate here?

Phillip Morris is paying Drew to greenlight smoking headlines so people who quit for New Years are reminded again and again about cigarettes until they crack.

Are you Americans ever going to forgive the French for inventing your democracy? All these sour grapes really make for a foul wine...

This isn't news, really. The ban went into place a year ago. People pissed and moaned until about mid-February. Then they got over it.

But then again the French revolted because they were inspired by the American Revolution.

French surrender!!!1! Did you think that up all by yourself? Wow, that's hilarious, you should go into comedy of something. You are freakin' hilarious. Throw in some jokes about how blacks are good cottonpickers, maybe a slanty-eyed yellow person joke and you have your own comedy album.

Lighten up bro. Calling the French pussies ain't near the same level as saying some racist shiat. If you are French you're pretty much proving the stereotype.

More like because they went broke bankrolling the American Revolution and couldn't feed their own people.

But seriously though, where does this idea that the French invented democracy come from? The American Revolutionaries were most directly influenced by Locke, Hume, and Adam Smith, and of course had over a century of experience with parliamentary democracy in the British system. While I won't deny that France's help was crucial to the success of the Revolution, it's a stretch to go from that to saying that the French "invented democracy". You only have to look at their own experiment with "democracy" to see how comfortable they were with the idea.

Vertoule, I like this:
Hitler himself was a vegetarian and did not smoke or drink;

*But* wasn't He a daily I.V. amphetamine user? Illustrates to Me the hypocrisy practiced by anti-smoke knuckleheads.

Amphetamine use doesn't harm anybody but you; smoking harms people in your vicinity. So it's stupid to compare the two. Argument over.
