Anti-Smoking Nazi’s

Smoking 

Ok, I gotta tell ya…I am so sick of these anti-smoking Nazi’s!!!  These people need to get a life.  It’s a legal product.   If you don’t like me smoking (not that I do…except for a choice cigar from time to time) then leave!!!  If these people spent half of the energy they expend to hound the smokers on tracking local sex offenders or on keeping criminals behind bars, we would have much safer neighborhoods.

 Oh and I ain’t just talking about these wacko groups.  No, I’m talking about your friendly neighborhood GOVCO.  What is it with these cities, counties and states enacting all these smoking laws?  Forcing businesses to ban smoking?  What happened to private enterprise?  If a business chooses to not allow any smoking, shouldn’t that be up to them? If they have smoking, can I not choose to go elsewhere?  Besides, IT IS A LEGAL PRODUCT!!!!!  The very fact that Govco makes SO much money off the sale of cigs then turns around and bans it is outrageous!  If smoking is so bad, then BAN it!!!

 Here are a few examples of how bad it has gotten:

Smoking is now considered in movie ratings.

 Woman fired for smelling like smoke.

A man in the UK is refused medical treatment until he stops smoking (but wait!  I thought Mikie Moore told us how wonderful the UK Health Care System is).

Maine banned smoking in the privacy of your own car.

Can we get a nice long moratorium on these Anti-Smoking Zealots!

    If Big Pharma can bribe enough politicians to outlaw smoking, they can replace it with a whole slew of drugs–antidepressants, tranquilizers, stimulants, weight loss drugs and sleep aids. You’re talking TRILLIONS in profits over time.

    That’s why you hear fifty times a day that smelling it is deadly. If one person in a hundred is dumb enough to believe it, their purpose is served.

  2. Roland Says:

    I can see Govco outlawing smoking only to start big time taxing candy like they do cigs now.

  3. What is everyone smoking? September 15th Edition Says:

    […] The Moratorium Site has a rant on Anti-Smoking Nazi’s. […]

  4. fra59e Says:

    If smokers would keep their habit private, they would not be so offensive to others. There are certain behaviors the rest of us do not wish to share in public places without our consent. Examples are spitting, farting, picking your nose, smoking cigarettes and masturbating. go ahead and do these things all you want in your own space only. Keep your cigarettes at home. and pay your own medical bills when your health gives out. And hey smokers, when you are out in crowds such as on buses stay away from the rest of us because you smokers stink, and if you hadn’t fried your olfactory nerves with your foul gaseous waste effluents you would know how disgusting your bodies and clothes stink.

  5. Roland Says:

    Funny…I thought driving in a car WAS in private. Guess you didn’t read my blog, huh?

    People with BO stink as well. Also, someone who just ate a bag of Combos usually has “combo breath”. How about coffee breath? Should we ban those people from schools as well?

    If the product is so bad, why not just ban it?

  6. Joe Camel Says:

    fra59e:

    Farting in public is revolting; smoking used to be commonplace and nobody cared. Your comparison is absurd.

    So sick smokers should pay their own medical bills and equally sick nonsmokers shouldn’t?

    What rock were you under before the Tobacco War fraud?

  7. cigarcommand Says:

    It’s getting ridiculous, the policies being put in place for a legal product.

    Hello All,

    I was reading around some of the posts here and I found interesting things that you guys talk about, I just made a blog about quitting smoking resources and ideas that you might want to check out.
    If someone is interested in this topic just go to; http://endthehabitnow.blogspot.com and let me know what you think.
    Thanks in advance.

  9. cmoore Says:

    Did someone seriously compare spitting, farting, picking your nose and smoking cigarettes in public to masturbating? Give me a break.

  10. Keegan Says:

    wtf, if people want to smoke then let them, and buisiness’ should be allowed to have closed off smoking sections if its well ventalated, and farting and all taht is nothing like smoking, and hell i fart and pick my nose in public quite often, and i also do other worse things, and if you want to discuss the dangers of smoking then why arent you stupid anti-smoking nazi’s complaining about overweight people and the risk they cause themselves, and banning smoking in a car is complete bullshit. and the blog made a good point, why waste time on this crap when thers better shit to do with that time and money

  11. hello Says:

    i am totally fine with other people choosing to slowly kill themselves and smoke… except for the fact that they are also making that choice for the poeple around them. and in the “privacy” of their own cars? who do you think is in those cars? so many times its children, how wonderful to get them addicted before they can even talk. and you say to save money? do you have ANY idea how much less the health care system would spend if they didnt have to replace people’s blackened lungs? lung cancer and emphysema and dialysis machines? smoking is certainly legal. as is shooting a deer. and they have restrictions on that. as well as fishing hooks and knives and all sorts of things. just beceause its legal doesn’t mean it shouldnt have obvious restrictions.

  12. hello Says:

    and how dare you compare a nazi to people. do oyu have any idea what the jews and others in the concentration camps went through? because if you did you would never dishonor their memory and the memories of those still alive who suffered by comparing antismoking campaigners to the nazis. how dare you.

    • Sigh Says:

      You really are an idiot. One of the Nazi’s first campaigns was to snuff out smoking. Look how they turned out. It’s the same idea r-tard, trying to force your idealogy on someone else no matter what anyone else thinks because thats what THEY think is best for everyone. That’s what these anti-smoking zealots are up to, and thats what the Nazis were up to. God I hate retards….

  13. Stop Smoking Programs Says:

    Really nice post – thanx for sharing

  14. cameron Says:

    EVERYONE KNOWS Smoking is just plain bad. Do everyone a favour dickhead, stop being a lameass smoker or shut the fuck up. Send me CONSTRUCTIVE hatemail ‘cuz i wanna hear whats so great about smoking that its worth dying for. baldering@yahoo.com

  15. Roland Says:

    It’s a legal product. What’s so great about alcohol or big macs or french fries that they are worth dying for?

  16. Dude Says:

    Modern liberalism is fascism with hugs and smiles. I love how they use the children. Oh the children this and the children that. Who are these people to say how you can raise your children? People crucify smokers because somebody has to be persecuted. It isn’t nice to persecute unless you’re persecuting a smoker. Hardcore anti’s think that only smokers get cancer and that only smoker’s bodies will crumble with time. They have to have these beliefs. Their arrogant attitude and subtle fear of old age and death reak more than any smoker. They thing they can cheat nature and its laws.

    I could imagine fra59e being the first one in line to salute the fuhrer. People like this could be told the sky is green and they would believe it. They are sad people that can’t make their own decisions. They just spew what has been told to them like they are some kind of robot. Smoking does kill, time & stress kill. This whole secondhand smoke cause healthy problems is if you spend 24/7 in a clam bake of tobacco smoke. A few hours a week isn’t going to kill you. I don’t masterbate fre59e because doctors said it causes blindness.

    To hello, What does a dialysis machine have to do with smoking? Dialysis machines are for kidney failure or other kidney problems.

    […] I’m convinced that a large part of the deterioration of those good times and attitudes toward our fellow man has something to do with the gradual spread of cultivated liberalism, embedded group mentality, self-serving self-righteousness and arrogance that has changed our lives and is dwindling our civil liberties almost daily.  It’s certainly apparent  in the ever increasing big brother, Nanny State regulations and guidelines to control every aspect of your life and business… or at least tax it until it dies. I certainly wouldn’t recommend lighting up now within a block or even anywhere upwind of a “do-gooder”, “non-smoker nanny type”. You might find yourself being booed at best, or even carted off in a “Nanny Wagon”. I’ve gathered below some of my favorite references on the subject. Thoughts or comments that thus far, are still free to be made without fear from thought police. Speaking of second-hand smoke: Contrary to a deliberately fostered phony ‘consensus’ (consensus being the new rule of law according to liberals), there is no science proving second-hand smoke causes death or illness. This premise, like so many other premises fostered by the smoke nazis, is just not true. Liberals Send The Truth Up In Smoke – http://rightbias.com/Articles/100807smoker.aspx With as much money as I pay in taxes to enjoy my “habit”, I’d appreciate it alot if all of you rabid, anti-smokers, would stay out of our small, dank, poorly ventilated, well-marked, designated smoking areas. Smoking, a nasty habit – http://grimthing.com/archives/2003/03/01/smoking-a-nasty-habit/ War is coming to America, and is being brought not by Islam, but by our own prejudices and bias. Anti Smoking Reaches Homeowners – http://www.e-thepeople.org/article/59229/view?viewtype=best&skip=30 So what we have here are two really scary, really popular viewpoints: * I don’t like smoking, so the state must make sure that I never, ever encounter it. And: * I believe that if something is believed to be a health risk in certain circumstances, if it exists in the world at all then I am a murder victim who just hasn’t died yet. The state must eradicate every molecule of it. – This isn’t about health, it’s hysteria! Secondhand Bullshit – There is no evidence that second-hand smoke has ever killed ONE person, much less the thousands that are claimed by anti-smokers. NO EVIDENCE, period. This whole hullabaloo is junk science… – Nicotine Found to Prevent Some Diseases – Smokers pay $16.2 BILLION in taxes on cigarettes – this is Minnesota fascism in action (yes, Hitler was an anti-smoker too). – This is do-gooderism raised to mass madness. http://libertyed.org/noforce/2006/08/secondhand-bullshit.html Here are a few examples of how bad it has gotten: Smoking is now considered in movie ratings.

    Throughout the years, the science of secondhand smoke has driven the secondhand smoke policy engine from separate smoking and nonsmoking sections to separately ventilated smoking rooms to 100% smokefree environments. We now know that 53,800 people die every year from secondhand smoke exposure. This number is based on the midpoint numbers for heart disease deaths (48,500), lung cancer deaths (3,000), and SIDS deaths (2,300) as calculated in the 1997 California EPA Report on Secondhand Smoke. And children are at significant risk to many acute and chronic diseases as a result of secondhand smoke exposure.

    In 2007, a study using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology was able to detect damage in the lungs of nonsmokers exposed to secondhand smoke. For more information on this study, read the study’s abstract. (Courtesy of RSNA and Chengbo, Wang, PhD.)

    CNN also produced a video news story about the study, which can be viewed online here.

    Since the 1986 Surgeon General’s Report titled The Health Consequences of Involuntary Smoking stated that secondhand smoke can cause disease in nonsmokers, hundreds of studies have concluded not only this, but that exposure to secondhand smoke can result in death. Over the past 20 years, scientific research has become even more clear, resulting now in the ability to pinpoint the effects of secondhand smoke not just on particular organs, but on various ethnicities, types of workers, and socioeconomic classifications.

    The 2006 Surgeon General’s Report on The Health Consequences of Involuntary Exposure to Tobacco Smoke confirmed the known health effects of secondhand smoke exposure, including immediate adverse effects on the cardiovascular system, and coronary heart disease and lung cancer. The report concluded that there is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke and that establishing smokefree environments is the only proven way to prevent exposure. The report also finds that many millions of Americans are still exposed to secondhand smoke despite substantial progress in tobacco control. Here is the great video shown at the Surgeon General press conference in June 2006. a study has confirmed that restaurants and bars located in smokefree cities have 82% less indoor air pollution than restaurants and bars in cities that do not have smokefree protection. Because of the mountain of evidence from these peer-reviewed, scientific studies, the Centers for Disease Control recently issued a warning for anyone at risk for heart disease to avoid smoke-filled indoor environments completely.

    Tobacco industry pays scientists to challenge secondhand smoke’s link to infant death risk
    The link between secondhand smoke and sudden infant death has been discredited in the last few years in scientific articles paid for and influenced by cigarette manufacturers, according to a new study of once-secret industry documents.
    The key article, commissioned by Philip Morris and published in a respected pediatric epidemiology journal in 2001, discounts the significance of research showing a link between exposure to secondhand cigarette smoke and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The article has been cited in at least 19 other scientific papers, misleading physicians, their patients and researchers about the risk of secondhand smoke exposure.

    “Undermining people’s understanding of the link between secondhand smoke and SIDS places infants everywhere at increased risk,” according to Stanton Glantz, PhD, director of the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at UCSF and senior author of the new study analyzing the tobacco company documents.

    Analysis of the Philip Morris documents shows that the company sought and paid an author to write an article for publication in a scientific journal, guided his writing and suggested changes in his conclusions in order to call into question the published studies showing links between secondhand cigarette smoke and SIDS.

    The new report was prepared by researchers at UCSF and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and appears in the March issue of the journal Pediatrics.

    The article Philip Morris commissioned was part of the company’s overall scientific strategic plan for addressing secondhand smoke (SHS) and childhood health issues, the documents show. One document summarized the “impact assessment” for this project as follows: “Should provide the necessary scientific background for a policy on the acceptability of smoking around children.”

    The key article acknowledges that smoking during pregnancy can endanger the fetus, but casts doubt on the published scientific finding that secondhand smoke increases the risk of sudden infant death — a finding highlighted in 1992 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and reinforced by the California Environmental Protection Agency in 1997.

    The tobacco company carried out this disinformation campaign even after the landmark 1998 settlement between all of the major U.S. tobacco manufacturers and 46 states. In the settlement, the tobacco firms agreed to pay the states $206 billion over the first 25 years and continuing amounts after that, and agreed to stop creating controversy about the evidence linking smoking and disease.

    The tobacco industry’s disinformation campaign regarding secondhand smoke and maternal and child health can be counteracted, the UCSF and CDC researchers write in their analysis.

    I know that is a lot to read, i dont expect you to read all of it. it’s simply important that you realize there is scientific evidence to back up second hand smoking risks.
    now to add to this, all of you who think that by smoking in public someone will come up and start yelling at you….. seriously. has that actually happened? my guess is no. are you trying to get people to feel sorry for smokers because they are being “persecuted” ? how so? we don’t say ban smokers! starve them! has that ever been even inferred?? stop playing pity cards. i’ve never randomly told some one i dont know that they’re a horrible person because they’re smoking… nor do i believe that. but honestly, “I certainly wouldn’t recommend lighting up now within a block or even anywhere upwind of a ‘do-gooder’, ‘non-smoker nanny type’. You might find yourself being booed at best, or even carted off in a ‘Nanny Wagon’. ” carted off in a nanny wagon? first of all, nannies take care of children… so find a better metaphor. and second of all, what exactly do you mean by that? it doesn’t make sense. please explain. and “do-gooders” dont attack people, they tackle the harmful behavior and the companies behind the lies.

    as for your “small, dank, poorly ventilated, well-marked, designated smoking areas,” – that’s your choice to sit there, stop complaining.

    smoking also causes problems in and accelerates failure in kidneys. here’s some proof of this: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, smoking harms nearly every organ of the body. Therefore, it is not surprising to learn that smoking also plays a role in the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The first study that showed the connection between smoking and kidney disease was done in 1978. Since then many studies have supported this finding.

    According to the Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial (MRFIT), smoking is one of the leading risk factors that can lead to end stage renal disease (ESRD).

    Some of the possible ways smoking is thought to harm kidneys are by:

    =Increasing blood pressure and heart rate
    =Reducing blood flow in the kidneys
    =Increasing production of angiotensin II (a hormone produced in kidney)
    =Narrowing the blood vessels in the kidneys
    =Damaging arterioles (branches of arteries)
    =Forming arteriosclerosis (thickening and hardening) of the renal (kidney) =arteries
    =Accelerating loss of kidney function

    which is why i brought up dialysis machines.

    I’m personally trying to quit smoking now because with the amount of cigarettes I smoke daily I have for some time been noticing a deterioration of my general health. I have to agree with the “anti-smoking nazis” that I shouldn’t smoke around others but not because it causes a health risk to them. I think since this is a free country people should be allowed to do what they want and that includes smoking cigarettes in public if they wish but on the same token since this is a free country I believe that people who choose not to smoke (good choice btw) and don’t want to smell it shouldn’t need to be subjected to it. As far as banning smoking in cars goes (and i honestly don’t feel like scrolling up to your post so i can quote you properly because i think you’re an idiot) I think your car IS personal space and as long as I’m driving safely it shouldn’t matter to you what I’m doing in there. And yes, you are right, you shouldn’t smoke in cars with children inside because if you’re driving a kid around I would say there is a better than average chance that you are among that child’s role models and you wouldn’t want him to emulate that down the road. But that’s kind of a moot point because you shouldn’t be smoking around children regardless of where it is. Then again though, who am I to tell a person that? I’m not their child’s father. My parents smoked around me when I was a kid and it was probably the wrong choice, but passing legislation that takes away your freedom and ability to make a very simple choice for the welfare of yourself and your own children does make you somewhat of a Nazi. As for the person who was offended by people calling these anti-smoking folks Nazis you’re right for many reasons, but they don’t call them Nazis because they’re rounding up smokers and murdering them, they call them that because they share some sort of greater good fascist idealism that has no place in a democracy. Fascist is probably a much more appropriate derogatory term then Nazi. But Nazi is a word that hits hard and they weren’t trying to be nice about it.
