What are the exorbitant MEDICAL COSTS of Morbid Obesity and Diabetes?

BOTH PROMULGATED AND PROMOTED BY THE FDA AND OUR GOVERNMENTS!






RE: TOBACCO TABOO - © - Tom Hyland - 02-15-09

J'NIA - thank you, Dear!

This is really my BIGGEST pet peeve!

IF - one person CHOOSES to drink exorbitant amounts of ALCOHOL - Get DRUNK, ruin their Family's lives, Break Laws and DRIVE - MURDER another Family with their car - that's OKAY, right? It's a Legal product, with a huge LOBBY, and produces MUCHO TAX DOLLARS for the governments coffers - HOW CONVENIENT!

BUT - IF - another person, minds his own business, sits in a BAR, drinking COCA-COLA, and almost ALL the other patrons are, in fact, SMOKERS - but, by Maryland Law (imposed by the Smoking NAZIS in Annapolis) - we are FORBIDDEN TO SMOKE IN THE LAST BASTIONS OF FREEDOM - while every NON-Smoker has their CHOICE of EVERY RESTAURANT in the FRIGGING STATE in which to dine - WHY IN THE HELL CAN'T WE BE LEFT ALONE, INSTEAD OF DISCRIMINATED AGAINST?

DON'T LIKE TO SMOKE? STAY OUT OF BARS!
SIMPLE - AND - FAIR !!! BUT NO -------
NON-SMOKERS HAVE TO HAVE IT ALL !!!

J'NIA - if you ever have some time to waste, and want to read more of this diatribe, go to the following website and read what I posted over 10 years ago! IT IS STILL THERE!

Sorry to be so verbose, but I CARE DEEPLY! Tom.

Isn't it nice... The "stealfromus bill" includeds $2 Billion bucks for the smoke Nazis. That's the same people that stole all of the Tobacco suit money from the "damaged" smokers. One of the reason the economy is in such bad shape is the attack on smokers. Restaruants, bars and even resorts are going broke. The cascinos are even loosing business. It's time to start taking names for payback at the ballot box.

AMEN, Tom! Thank you for speaking out for many of us, and don't apologize, as you were not "verbose" :o)
I did take time to read your article on "Forces.org"; very well written, too. 'Tho others may assign to us "second-rate-citizens", they're wrong; we are first-rate, and can adjust very well, thank you.
When I go to non-smokers homes to visit, I go outside in the heat or cold to smoke. Yet when they come to MY (smoking) home, I provide 3 portable air-purifiers for their convenience...first class, huh? :o)
Blessings and Love - Micke

Well, well penned for sure. I use to smoke, neither here nor there, but now I'm overweight and over 50, two more conditions which the "smoke Nazis" and the "fat Nazis" and the "age Nazis" target as being the cause of our collective demise. It won't be long before old age pensioners will be blamed much more loudly and probably violently for not paying in enough of our hard earned wages into the pension schemes. It has always been and always be the perceived weaker members of our society who will be picked on. If you are not Jewish, or Black, or Handicapped, or Fat, or Native Indian, or Baptist, or Old, you'll be the last to be picked on. Me... I am all of these above.I don't have a hope in ...... oh, and I use to smoke....just a bad according to the doctors. Excellent write here Tom. Hugs, J'nia

The Smoke Nazis - a most interesting modern breed, and most perplexing. I've seen them even chewing out smokers - outdoors - while they stand waiting for the obnoxious smoke-spewing bus at the bus stop, after leaving work in the gigantic smoke-spewing, toxin polluting factory. Neither the bus, nor the factory, bother them, in the least - but that god-darned smoker - he's polluting the Earth!
