For so long the anti tobacco league have 'thrilled us all' (sic) with their array of fantastical claims whereby they manage to indoctrinate a good proportion of the dumb & dumber out there but this time they have come unstuck-BIGTIME!
As our friend Dick Puddlecote has already mentioned:
"The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington announced it upheld a decision barring the federal government from requiring tobacco companies to put large graphic health warnings on cigarette packages to show that smoking can disfigure and even kill people."
Shall we run that through again?
So why did the FDA decide to appeal if there is no concrete evidence? The answer my friends is literally "blowin' in the wind" because it is YOUR money they are playing with, it simply does NOT matter to them! All your tobacco taxes being used to further stigmatise you and the product you choose to enjoy. They are so used to getting everything their own way that they 'went to war with no ammo'. Now I am bound to say that if that had been the case in this country, I surely do think that our legal system would have capitulated to the anti tobacco mobs claims and granted everything they asked for.
Nick Hogan refused to send his elderly & frail customers out into the cold - outcome? PRISON.
Chris Carter refused to bow to this totally illiberal law, fought the courts for 4 years - outcome? PRISON
The courts are punishing people that are innocent of all charges simply because they deem the 'word' of an EHO "more worthy" than anyone accused of any smoke/smoking related offence. People in Liverpool, Leicester, Kettering, London, Portsmouth etc have all been humiliated by our now corrupted legal system simply to suit our EU masters. It has reached such a stage that a simple request for a "non smoke ban corrupted legal mind" was put on facebook for a week yet not one legally qualified person came forward. How sick is that? What does that say about our legal system today? The obvious point to all this is that, if accused, do not even bother trying to obtain expensive legal advice-represent yourself and/or get free legal advice on such matters at firstname.lastname@example.org where you will at least get honesty!
The FDA appeal failed because there was no evidence that all these silly pictures have made a ha'peth of difference to smoking rates yet the Aussies have seen fit (in their now crooked courts) to trample all over tobacco manufacturers rights and ordain plain packaging with big pictures - but no good will come of it whatsoever as smugglers will simply rub their collective hands together with delight. Any amount of crap (literally!) goes into some of their cigarettes, purity means nothing, profit is everything. The other problem of course is that once this sort of behaviour is sanctioned by the courts, what is next on the prohibitionists list? McDonalds beefburgers? Kentucky Fried Chicken meals? All alcoholic beverages? All sweets that rot teeth? Where does it end?
A rather startling find was this little gem that rightly claims:
"Cancer industry total fraud exposed"
The vast majority of so-called scientific studies focused on cancer research are inaccurate and potentially fraudulent, suggests a new review published in the journal Nature. A shocking 88 % of 53 "landmark" studies on cancer that have been published in reputable journals over the years cannot be reproduced, according to the review, which means that their conclusions are patently false.
