We might as well be warning the young of the 'chupacabra' or the 'zombie Easter Bunny'.
If the "boogey man" had killed 3000 people by flying jet airplanes with families and children as passengers into buildings, you'd have a point.

Please don't tell me you believe Obama's hype that he single-handedly got rid of the "boogey man". It's what got him in trouble right before the election when the "boogey man" killed our ambassador and he tried to convince us it wasn't the "boogey man" but just a figment of our imagination.

The danger of second-hand smoke is a myth according to a study by the British Medical Journal. If there is a risk, it is minimal and the association has been overstated according to the researchers.

The obsession with smoking is just political correctness gone amok.
Hospital employees have been fired for smoking in their car on their break.
Entire towns are trying to outlaw it.
Propaganda is everywhere.
But drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana is okay according to the political correct police.
The banning of smoking in restaurants and enclosed places is understandable. But political correctness doesn't know where to draw the line.
That's the slippery slope of Big Brother.
An industrial vacuum to suck out a growing life from a woman's womb by dismembering it is also okay.
Basically, we've lost our minds.
I'm sorry, but FOX says....

Secondhand smoke kills 42,000 nonsmokers a year in US

The UCSF researchers took a fresh approach by basing their numbers on a chemical called cotinine in the blood, which is a byproduct of smoking proportional to the amount of exposure to tobacco smoke. Most of us have cotinine in our blood; but those who are exposed to lots of secondhand smoke at home or, for example, at a bar, will have higher levels.

Republicans' choice: fantasy follies or reality-based relevance

The GOP's electoral future hangs on whether it prefers the 'conservative entertainment complex' to America as it finds it

But if you need to, just deny the science. Everyone will understand why.
An exhaustive long-running study on second-hand smoke and death could find no connection.

The British Medical Journal conducted a 39 year study of 35,561 Californians who had never smoked showed no "causal relationship between exposure to environmental tobacco smoke and tobacco-related mortality." (They also noted "a small effect" can't be ruled out.)

It's all hype perpetrated politically correct bozos. They can produce no study proving their claim that second-hand smoke leads to death.

You just believe whatever they say. And why you're amongst the easily fooled. And why Obama was reelected. And why we're screwed.

A small part of me is glad he won a second term. It makes the unstable happy another four years and also gives conservatives another four years to prove we were right all along.

The bozos are driving the bus and you're sitting in the front row enjoying the ride. Sonicfilter is in the back doing the same. But he's doing crude hand gestures to passing cars.

Fantasyland

Denial has poisoned the GOP and threatens the rest of the country too.

This year’s instantly famous declaration by the Romney pollster Neil Newhouse that “we’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers” crystallized the mantra of the entire GOP. The Republican faithful at strata both low and high, from Rush’s dittoheads to the think-tank-affiliated intellectuals, have long since stopped acknowledging any empirical evidence that disputes their insular worldview, no matter how grounded that evidence might be in (God forbid) science or any other verifiable reality, like, say, Census reports or elementary mathematics. No wonder Romney shunned the word Harvard, which awarded him two degrees, even more assiduously than he did Mormon.

Second-hand smoke study sparks controversy

Kabat and his co-author acknowledge the study was largely funded by the tobacco industry.

Some say the source of the funding is enough reason for the British Medical Journal to refuse to publish the paper. Two other journals turned it down.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/story/2003/05/16/smoki...

You show up here before the election with your right wing BS that carried not near that weight that you had wished for, and you're going to try to say that I'm easily fooled?

Well guess what women. I'm going to continue to be 'fooled' for the next four years whilst I continue to remind you of it for the next four. Put that in your FOXbot pipe and smoke it! Just wait until I leave the room.
