Milking the Tobacco Cash Cow

Fletcher Knebel , A well know author of political fiction once wrote:

“It is now proved beyond doubt that smoking is one of leading causes of statistics”

Mr. Knebel, that is an understatment!

My friends, it has become painfully obvious to me that we can no longer choose what simple pleasures in life we find enjoyable. Again our government has seen fit to further harass the tobacco companies. Free choice has once again been erased.

You as citizens of these United States of America wake up! in our Governments eyes you do not have the strength or intelligence to choose (Or teach your children) to choose between right & wrong. Now the FDA will take over the regulation & sale of all tobacco products. What next? Burgers? Ice cream? Soda?

In my last blog I talked about the “so called” statistics compiled by the EPA. It was proven that they “Cherry Picked the evidence that suited them”, about second hand smoke… Well…. Now the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) has the right to regulate ads about cigarettes aimed at children, as well as warning labels on tobacco product packaging. And lets not forget revenue: they will tax your pack & tobacco products even more.

Smoking Cigarettes in excess kills, we know that. If the FDA really wanted to do the right thing, why not pay tobacco farmers grow something else, and outlaw cigarettes all together?

This will never happen because The Government needs money. With bigger Government, comes the need for more money to fund it. The tobacco companies are now nothing more than a cash cow that will need to be milked a little more often for the common good.

Again, I give the floor to Fletcher Knebel for the last word.

“Our forefathers made one mistake. What they should have fought for was representation without taxation.”
