When any government agency outgrows it's original purpose and becomes morbidly obese, it's time to put it on a diet.
The EPA can't even fit through the door anymore and then throws its weight around wreaking havoc.
What we've learned here is that anything Carol is against is likely something that helps Americans.

Think about it!! She's railed against science for years now, proving her denial of reality and clinging to nonsense.

Her denial of the dangers of smoking and of second hand smoke prove her to be a nitwit.

A nitwit who sits at the computer with a piece of pie and a cigarette.

And she has diabetes and high cholesterol!! Now we learn she's a smoker, still denying proven science.

She is an example of why our healthcare system is under strain. Her disgusting personal habits cost the rest of us money.

Then she complains about others getting healthcare.

"The Health Consequences of Involuntary Exposure to Tobacco Smoke: A Report of the Surgeon General

June 27, 2006

""“The Health Effects of Secondhand Smoke”

Thank you, Rear Admiral Moritsugu for your kind introduction.

I am grateful to be here today and to be able to say unequivocally that the debate is over. The science is clear: secondhand smoke is not a mere annoyance, but a serious health hazard that causes premature death and disease in children and nonsmoking adults.

Updating the Evidence
Twenty years ago, the 1986 Surgeon General’s Report on The Health Consequences of Involuntary Smoking concluded that secondhand smoke exposure was a cause of disease in nonsmokers. That Report, which was one of the first major reports to investigate this topic, concluded that secondhand smoke caused lung cancer among nonsmoking adults and several respiratory problems among children.

Since that Report was published, hundreds of peer-reviewed studies and several additional major reports on the health effects of secondhand smoke have been published, and the evidence on these health effects has become even stronger.

The Surgeon General’s Report that we are releasing today, The Health Consequences of Involuntary Exposure to Tobacco Smoke, documents beyond any doubt that secondhand smoke harms people’s health. In the course of the past 20 years, the scientific community has reached consensus on this point.

Main Messages
I would like to draw your attention to several new conclusions that I have reached due to overwhelming scientific evidence.

Secondhand smoke exposure causes heart disease and lung cancer in adults and sudden infant death syndrome and respiratory problems in children.
There is NO risk-free level of secondhand smoke exposure, with even brief exposure adversely affecting the cardiovascular and respiratory system.
Only smoke-free environments effectively protect nonsmokers from secondhand smoke exposure in indoor spaces.
Finally, the Report concludes that, while great strides have been made in recent years in reducing nonsmoking Americans’ secondhand smoke exposure, millions of Americans continue to be exposed to secondhand smoke in their homes and workplaces.
Secondhand Smoke is Harmful to All People
Allow me to expand on the first major conclusion. Secondhand smoke is a health hazard for all people: it is harmful to both children and adults, and to both women and men. It is harmful to nonsmokers whether they are exposed in their homes, their vehicles, their workplaces, or in enclosedpublic places. We have found that certain populations are especially susceptible to the health effects of secondhand smoke, including infants and children, pregnant women, older persons, and persons with pre-existing respiratory conditions and heart disease.

Stay stupid, Carol. It suits you well.

People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.

You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.

They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.

Have you heard of the charge conspiracy to commit murder? But eventually all charges were dropped because the witness would not testify out of fear. This happened in the nineties. The defendant was guilty of shaking a baby so hard he broke it's leg because the baby would not stop crying. He also killed a man over a poker game as a juvenile and didn't serve one day. It's the same for baby shaking murderers.

I'm just so glad your side won. You can call people stupid and act like spoiled children and get away with it now.
Actually, the election proved for once and for all who the spoiled children are.

They are all in the Republican Party. Old and white and scared. Many of them smokers with COPD, like Carol!!

America rejected the Republican war on women, war on abortion, war on immigration, war on science, war on climate change, war on the EPA, war on gays, war on common sense.

Your side got clobbered, most would think that calls for a reassessment of your positions, as some of the smarter ones are currently doing.

But the evangelical white morons, of which Carol is a charter member, choose to double down on their stupidity and pretend the message is fine, they just need a new messenger.

Earth To LORAC:

Your last two messengers were kicked in the teeth by the electorate. Yet you stupidly choose to double down on the positions that cost your side th ePresidency, Senate seats, and House seats.

Let's see how happy you are when Obama appoints two SC members in the next four years, cementing a new, progressive era in America!!

The stupidity that was Fred, DB, Gunner, and Nobraina is gone, but Carol is working overtime to keep the ignorance flowing!!

<quoted text>lol! "...The ACSH is known as an "industry-friendly" group.[22] In 1982, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), a watchdog and consumer advocacy group, known to spar with ACSH, published an extensive report on ACSH's practices that stated, "ACSH appears to be a consumer fraud; as a scientific group, ACSH seems to arrive at conclusions before conducting studies. Through voodoo or alchemy, bodies of scientific knowledge are transmogrified into industry-oriented position statements."[23] CSPI director Michael F. Jacobson said of ACSH,'"This organization promotes confusion among consumers about what is safe and what isn't... ACSH is using a slick scientific veneer to obscure and deny truths that virtually everyone else agrees with."[24]
In 2004, the now-defunct Tufts University Nutrition Navigator (a rating guide to nutrition websites) gave the ACSH site an overall rating of 20 out of 25 and an "Accuracy of Information" rating of 8 out of 10. However, it commented, "This site aims to arm consumers with the facts necessary to make wise decisions about health, but be aware that the information here is biased and represents a very conservative interpretation of current science. Consumers looking for a balanced debate on health issues will have to look elsewhere."[25]..."
And this "Tufts University Nutrition Navigator" is all-knowing, all-conclusive and has no other agenda, I supppose.

I remember many of those scares in my lifetime.

But people now eat sugar substitutes and eggs like they're going out of style even though they were avoided like the plague during those scares.

Anyone who is "industry-friendly" is under attack these days. It's the new fundamentally transformed America we were promised.

No.

My friend with the Republican family, who fell silent after the election told me that her brother finally had a meltdown at Thanksgiving dinner at the country club and yelled out across the table, pointing at her "And, someone at this table actually voted for Obama, and then his girlfriend added "did you watch that 2016 movie? It's all truuuuue",
Needless to say, the dinner ended and they all left him sitting there like the fool he is.

Uh, I hate to remind you, but the Twit ended up with 47% of the popular vote.

Rather fitting, after his 47% comments, eh??

Keep talking, Carol.

With folks like you behind them, I'm sure the Republiclowns will lose even more elections going forward. That's a good thing!!

BTW, how's Allen West doing these days?? Why did TP candidates get demolished in the last election??

Abortion will never be outlawed as long as progressive secularism is the new religion.

Gay marriage will eventually become the new definition of societal standards.

Until some crazy person wants to marry his sister just to prove he can under the new definition of marriage.

Seek mental health, Carol.

Your ignorance is off the charts.

Fact is, some suger substitutes are not healthy.

Fact is, eggs are dangerous for some people to eat. Esp. those like yourself, who take statins for high cholesterol.

Fact is, you're a fool who's in denial.
