Phillip Morris Informative - Are you against cigarettes?
Are you one of those people who whole-heartedly stands against cigarettes? Are one of those people who stood up and cheered when the courts ordered companies such as Phillip Morris to pay billions of dollars to people with cancer and their families? Do you truly believe that doing away with cigarettes altogether will allow people to live longer? If so, please read the following. Aside from the obvious sarcasm associated with this site, I’m wondering how many people can actually justify being against cigarettes.
First off, the courts came up with the hilarious statement that before “warnings” were put on packs of cigarettes, the public had no way of knowing they were harmful. People must be pretty stupid creatures. After all, I think I’d be questioning something that has to be stuck in my mouth and fire put to the end of it and smoke being sucked into my lungs as to whether it is harmful to me. I believe from that alone a clue would be given to me and some lawyer didn’t have to twist the truth to get me to understand it. If a person puts something into their body to alter their body (physically, mentally, whatever) and that person does have a disease or a sickness (in other words, doing it for “pleasure”), that substance is going to harm them. I believe I was born with this knowledge.
Next, people who don’t smoke have every right to protest and claim they don’t want it around them. I’ve heard a lot of people say they don’t want themselves or their children exposed to cigarette smoke especially in restaurants. I think by banning smoking in all “family” type restaurants (those that do not serve alcohol), might be a step in the right direction. Smoking should be allowed in all restaurants that serve alcohol. After all, any place that serves alcohol cannot be construed as a “family” environment.
Now, how many people who actually refuse to be around cigarette smoke have done the following:
1. Absolutely refused to drive a vehicle because the pollutants from the vehicles are just as, if not more, poisonous than second hand cigarette smoke. After all, if everyone wants clean air, wouldn’t this be an obvious way to get it?
2. Openly protested a factory or industrial plant within 10 miles from their home. If lawyers are going after automakers and factory / industrial plant owners, the media has failed to report it (aside from the reports where a factory is forced to clean up waters such as rivers, etc.).
The sad truth is, people who don’t smoke cigarettes entertain some type of eternal life fantasy that they will be vibrant, fun loving, healthy, sex maniacs at age 96. The media has failed to get that story aired as well. I just want to see how many people will actually give an intelligent reply to this post…and perhaps give a valid reply to the 2 statements above. I’ll let everyone decide for themselves if a smoker posted this…
