It is a fact... A good number of smokers are on government assistance. They can recycle the money given to them through additional taxes. most are too stupid to realize they are too poor to smoke.
And the ones who do not get government assitance but still smoke...are just dumb and deserve additional taxes.

UU, please engage brain before opening mouth (or touching keyboard).
You cannot tax what is not legal.
Ultimately, a majority of the movement will not cut off the hand that feeds them (however reluctantly).
Even when things are legal, when taxes go up more people do creative things to get around them.

And a very good deal are not (specifically cigar and pipe smokers). Your local 'dealers' may begin to diversify *smirk*.
The situation will become an anarcho-capitalist's wet dream.

Some of the most powerful actors on this stage want full on prohibition, for others it is their worst nightmare.
Stalemate.
The activist have pulled out 'no safe level' and '3rd hand' which most people don't really accept (even if the bans are to their liking). The movement has nowhere left to go.

No I enjoyed adventure books and movies. Have you read the book you speak of?
I am fimiliar with the book. It didn't have many pictures in it, so i doubt you ever read it.

tell me rebel flag one...have you gotten a job yet? If so...I bet it is cold working outside.

Does smoking outside really warm you up inside? I heard someone say that once...but who knows...it was a smoker.

I have people read for me...you see..I can afford to...they specialize or like reading the fine print which kinda annoys me. I do enjoy a good book here and there.

Vices may not be a crime...but smoking is an irratant..but I am sure you were told that before. If you live in a public nonsmoking state...I bet smoking at work is a hassle....

Then again, I give you too much credit.

Yes, once, a few years back.
I snuffed it and enjoyed the remainder later.
Not something that happened often anyways. I've had more than one person tell me that the additive free tobacco i smoke is much less acrid than your average fauxbacco product.

Not at all. I step out of my office, walk down the hall and pop out the back door. Even on a day like today the tinted wall of windows is almost hot to the touch from the sunshine.
I enjoy the peace looking out over the clarifying tanks. If i'm lucky i'll catch sight of a hawk from the forest preserve next door.

As management i am not subject to union break rules. Not to mention my boss knows better than to pi$$ off his 'McGuyver'(sp).

More like not enough, but that matters little. I could care less what ANY person who relies on government to mold the society they wish to live in thinks.
Filthy rich or dirt poor.
You may (or not) be a citizen of this great country, BUT you are hardly an 'American(TM)'.

Have you not read the memo? Smoking rates have stalled, even with the most absurd hazard claims proclaimed by the BP's wh0res.

Again the goose that lays those golden eggs can be chained behind the coop in the bitter cold and beaten like a red headed step child ... NO politician has the b@lls to pull out the ax.

Productivity? Hah. That would mean all these activist would have to get REAL jobs. Produce something of value as opposed to gleefully abusing those who pay for their very existance.
