GOVERNMENTAL IDIOCY REGARDING SMOKING

You may have heard a lot about the new FDA "deeming regulations" about tobacco recently. But if you are not a smoker, it may not have made much a blip on your consciousness.

Apparently, pipes are tobacco products.
Per the bozos.


THE FDA WIPES A HOLE IN THE GROUND


[SOURCE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hbrzr4KEWk&feature=share.]



The FDA, co-opted and egged on by the anti-tobacco fascists, would like to shut down manufacturers, distributors, and retailers, of tobacco products and implements. Tobacco has few friends among politicians, most of whom would rather prostitute themselves to the fanatics than actually stand up for common sense and the common man.

You can get endorsements from any number of busybodies by slamming tobacco, but when you defend a fond hobby that brings pleasure to millions and employs millions more -- meaning pipes and cigars -- your political career will be over.

Without tobacco, our country would not exist. It was that specific cash crop that enabled us, and largely fueled the push westward.



When your politician comes back from Washington, kindly remind him that he or she is a miserable cretin who should be horsewhipped.
The same for the FDA bureaucrats behind this.
As well as puritans.



PS: whips don't kill people; people kill people.

    You're late to this particular party! Sadly, the major backers for this regulation package aren't the anti-smokers, they are the big cigarette producers. Both they and the government are losing money, mostly to vaping, but also to the cigarette tobacco labelled as pipe tobacco.

    Have you seen a bigger bunch of hypocrites? It pisses me off no end. You can't have it both ways, subsidizing the farmers, and then prohibiting the use of the end product. Retards!
    In this past legislative session at the state level, our reps wanted to increase the tax on cigarettes $1/pack. Supposedly, it would encourage people to quit and pay for the roads?! Where do they get the revenue when people stop smoking? I think we are living the zombie apocalypse. They've taken over state and Federal capitols.
