Surgeon General's report on secondhand smoke

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Cosmo, Jun 27, 2006.

    It places my comfort level at risk as a consumer and paying customer.

    I'm simply trotting out the same defense that a non-smoking bar patron would.

    Smokers don't see themselves as drug addicts, that's part of the problem. Make heroin legal and what is the difference between a smoker and a junkie? One uses a syringe and one uses a cigarette, the only difference is the delivery mechanism.

    Lee, the point of this discussion that the Surgeon General is now saying smoking in front of others goes beyond 'impolite.'

    If you don't believe what the Surgeon General is saying - fine - take that tack. So far you haven't, though.

    I don't believe any chief officer nominated by this president and confirmed by this Senate, no.

    Nobody would know who the fuck the surgeon general was if it weren't for smokers and fat people. That seems like a hell of a way to build a name for yourself.

    I believe him just as I will when he comes out and says that auto emissions, including those of hybrids, are dangerous and cause cancer and other health problems.

    Perhaps you've heard of global warming? It's in all the papers. Car emissions will eventually cause all the polar ice caps to melt and flood the world. That good enough for you?

    I'll only start believing him when he comes out with a report that says gunshot wounds are potentially fatal.

    Until then, I won't believe a word he says.

    But we keep on driving and blaming cigarette smoke. Why is that?

    Maybe smoking causes global warming.

    Well, this thread's been fun, but I gotta go start my new, harmless to others hobby of shooting up heroin.  ::)

    Agreed, esp. the ones who cant' see through the smokescreen that overly villifies smoking while helping to bring down Mother Earth.
