I believe that some people will never feel "safe" from all the environmental menaces threatening them until they are hermetically sealed in a plastic bubble and fed filtered air through a tube. Even then, another "study" will pop up like a boil on a wino's ass to prove that plastic bubbles cause cancer, too.

WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!

I read shit like this and I want to barf. Now... in the wake of Jayson Blair and Rathergate, I don't want to suggest that CNN is guilty of sloppy reporting and fear-mongering to support the anti-smoking nazis... I want to say it OUTRIGHT! THIS STORY IS PURE BULLSHIT!!!

Quote:
Smoky bars and casinos have up to 50 times more cancer-causing particles in the air than highways and city streets clogged with diesel trucks at rush hour, according to a study that also shows indoor air pollution virtually disappears once smoking is banned.
The last time I was around "smoky" bars and casinos, I don't remember anybody grabbing me and physically dragging me into the places to force me to breathe the toxic air. If I didn't like the "indoor air pollution," I was free to stay on the sidewalk and protect my delicate lungs from all that "pollution" by NOT GOING INSIDE. But that's exercising personal freedom and choice, which is NOT considered proper behavior today.

We need to government to make those choices for OUR OWN GOOD, because we are too stupid to handle that task ourselves.

Quote:
Conducted by the researcher who first showed secondhand smoke causes thousands of U.S. lung cancer deaths each year, the study found casino and bar workers are exposed to particulate pollution at far greater levels than the government allows outdors.
Would that be the EPA zealot "researcher" who lied about that shit 12 years ago? Would that be the asshole behind the ten-year World Health Organization study that didn't prove what it set out to prove? Would that be... a fucking lie? I have "news" for CNN. In spite of the best efforts of anti-smoking nazis and millions of dollars spent in quest of a "smoking" gun, NO ONE HAS EVER demonstrated a correlation between second-hand smoke and lung cancer deaths.

That's a fact. You wouldn't know that from reading the "news," would you? No. What happened between the time the EPA released its famous "study" on second-hand smoke and the time that study was throughly debunked as a power-grab piece of junk science by a federal judge, MILLIONS of people died from second-hand smoke. Just Google and read.

The EPA said 3,000 people died every year and they lied about that. Before long, the number was 50,000 people per year and I don't know where that figure came from. Nobody could ever prove it, but who cares? When you want to scare the crap out of ignorant people with big lies, BIG NUMBERS HELP. Just make 'em up. The more Zeros, the scarier. CNN isn't going to doubt your lies. They'll print your fucking press release and call it a news story. CBS may run the story on 60 Minutes.

Whatever happened to news reporters having a bullshit detector?

Anytime the government uses "health benefits" as an excuse to steal more of your freedom, you're in trouble. Soccer moms everywhere start to hyperventilate. They believe whatever crap is thrown at them and they feel that Venusian urge to SAVE THE CHILDREN by giving government more power. Choice is a frightenening thing to them, except for abortion, where they want the government to stay the hell out of a place it doesn't belong.

Guess what, darlings? Government doesn't need to tell me where I can smoke and where I can't, either.

We recently had the bill in our state legislature to outlaw smoking in restaraunts and in bars that prepare food. This was pushed by the same people who, last year, got the power shifted from the state to local governments thinking the parishes would outlaw it. Out of the 64 parishes, 0 passed this.

I dunno but there was a study not long ago from the EPA stating that indoor air is five times more poluted than outdoor air. I'm talking about things like dust, pollen and other alergenics. And last time I checked usualy smoke carries particles of whatever is burning so more than likely the smoke of cigarettes carry the same ingredients. On most cities there is an ordinance of no smoking indoors and a nice 500 dollar fine comes to the violator. And in case someone thinks they are not enforced they are wrong, I have seen the law being enforced in three different places.

Well, I'm sure you've heard about the new regulations on car emissions they passed in Cali. It seems like a ridiculous peice of legislation. I'm sure the costs are going to cost so goddamn much cars will cost even more, or perhaps they'll add some new shit to the gas, in order to jack the price on that. At any rate, it's supposed to cure global warming. I find it unlikely to do anything but piss ppl off. Still, I grew up in the inland valley, where the air is so bad you can't see a mile down the road. We had many days where we weren't even allowed outside. My solution? Move the fuck out.

Also, I smoke, and I have to say, I really could give a shit about going outside to do it. It's really not that big of a deal, and if it keeps ppl from yapping, then who cares. Before long though, I'm sure I'll be banned from smoking in my own bathroom.

There's a no smoking bylaw where I live. You aren't allowed to smoke in any public buildings.

Also, every vehicle older than a '95 [I think] has to be emission tested.
