There are actually three wars, Dorothy: the one in Iraq, the one in Afghanistan, and the one we are fighting here, the one against health Nazis. The health Nazis are jockeying for control of what you eat, what you drink, what you smoke, and how long you exercise. I can't think of a more worthy cause to fight against than this one: terrorists in our back yard. Have a nice day.
I can't think of a more just fight either. The health Nazi's make the Taliban look like Boy Scouts!

Hello Sheri. I have a question for you: what are you talking about? I woke up today, felt like excercising, but didn't. Nobody (no Nazi) told me I HAD to excercise. Took a lunch break at McDonalds and ordered a #1. No Nazi told me I couldn't order anything on the menu. I got a drink with it, thought about getting a diet coke but then changed my mind and went with a Cherry Coke (No Nazi told me what to drink) and then after eating, I smoked in my car for 20 minutes before returning to work happy and ready to finish my day. What Country are you living in? It sure doesn't sound like the great United States of America!

I'm poor, unemployed, and increasingly unemployable do to the hysteria about smoking. The new 2200% increase in my roll your own loose tobacco is an extortionary assault. Be ashamed amerika, be very ashamed, and repeal this travisty in a matter of weeks to prevent widespread lawlessnes.
Then quitting smoking would enhance your job prospects. Doesn't sound like you're too poor if you 'roll your own'. POOR is if you don't HAVE any money to roll your own.

Don't let the nanny-state busy-bodies upset you. Join a Tea Party in your area and throw out all the socialist Progressives in *both* parties this November and in 2012 that would rather spend their time and OUR money on smoking bans and other government-expanding and individual-rights-destroying legislation instead of solving the real problems we sent them there to solve.

Dear folks,
Thank you for your recent letter explaining business changes forced by new and novel draconion tax-grabbing measures
of the agents of government.
I have a big problem, or perhaps YOU do, with item (C)
which tells me that you are going to voluntarilly act as unpaid lap dog taX collection agent for the state of texas.
Full on with the brakes, right now. Hello. Sales taxes are applicable at point of sale, only.
Why do you imagine that I buy my cigarets out of state in the first Place? Hello. I happily pay shipping and handling charges that may equal taxes only so that I can screw the state. Hello. Clean out your ears and get a load of this: I do NOT submit or surrender to expansion of taxation authorities' reach into other jurisdictions, period. You tell me right now, in wirting (e-amil is okay) if you are going to correct this or not. Othersie, the honeymoon is over, and we are through. No negociating. Let me hear from you immediately.
P.S. If you like, you can tell the state of texas to send ME the bill for their tax. I welcome it.
Signed
Paul W. Moratto

This is Topix world forum. But i would like to get some clarification from USA's citizen on line here.
I am a chain DUNHILL SMOKER for pretty long .
I will smoke till my death irrespective of the price.
US citizens are not chain smokers but drivers of their cars.
Are there any single american who can pay say 5 bugs for petrol?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
