Wow. Crazy much? So now you know more than 97% of the scientific community AND you know more than the Surgeon General. We should all be going to truck driving school if that is the case. I'm guessing the reason why you can't smoke in most establishments around here is because your opinions are so popular with the American people. The fact that you call The Heritage Foundation a source for news is like going to the KKK webpage for "facts" on black history.
call me crazy, but if secondhand smoke really did cause lung cancer then wouldn't there be millions of cases of it? Especially in people in their 20s to 40s who grew up around all kinds of it. How's come you never see somebody losing their breath at the top of stairways due to secondhand smoke. 97 percent?? Are you sure you know what you're talking about??

This is true. But when you look at a President, he is kind of the kingpin of our government. This guy has made lie on top of lie. And while his approval ratings are dropping, there are still a good percentage of lunkheads that support him. If people were sober and awake, his disapproval numbers would be in the 90% range just like his black supporters that voted for him twice.
I think we Republicans hold our own more responsible. Bush took a lot of criticism from those on the right yet alone on the left. When one of ours steps out of line, they're gone. Remember Nixon? The people in our party told him to step down. Get out of Dodge. Bill Clinton had overwhelming support in spite of being proven a complete liar. William Jefferson? Stayed until his last day. Jackson Jr?
Rush Limbaugh: the media is anxious to promote a black quarterback. Gone. Bush: Read my lips, no new taxes. Gone. Trent Lott: If Strom had been elected President, we would have a better country today. Gone. Kerry: If you don't stay in college, you may end up in someplace like Iraq. OH! It was just a flubbed joke.
And only in your party they vote for drug testing for welfare, then get busted buying cocaine from undercover officers along with these outstanding members of society:

"Before its 1992 report, EPA had always used epidemiology's gold standard CI of 95 percent to measure statistical significance. But because the U.S. studies chosen for the report were not statistically significant within a 95 percent CI, for the first time in its history EPA changed the rules and used a 90 percent CI, which doubled the chance of being wrong."
I sure am glad that the epa isn't really 97 percent of the "scientific community". Especially since they seem to be a shill for corporate lobbyists in our government.

The CDC calls you crazy but of course, you know better than they do. Strange how the only site claiming 2nd hand smoke isn't harmful is the Koch Brothers Heartland Institute.

ANYONE that gets caught deserves what they get.
IF a welfare recipient or cop, mayor or representative gets busted, they are busted.
AND IF the working stiff gets tested for a job, there's NO good reason that welfare recipients should get tested too.

Global Warming Alarmists Caught Doctoring '97-Percent Consensus' Claims

Global warming alarmists and their allies in the liberal media have been caught doctoring the results of a widely cited paper asserting there is a 97-percent scientific consensus regarding human-caused global warming. After taking a closer look at the paper, investigative journalists report the authors’ claims of a 97-pecent consensus relied on the authors misclassifying the papers of some of the world’s most prominent global warming skeptics. At the same time, the authors deliberately presented a meaningless survey question so they could twist the responses to fit their own preconceived global warming alarmism.

Global warming alarmist John Cook, founder of the misleadingly named blog site Skeptical Science, published a paper with several other global warming alarmists claiming they reviewed nearly 12,000 abstracts of studies published in the peer-reviewed climate literature. Cook reported that he and his colleagues found that 97 percent of the papers that expressed a position on human-caused global warming “endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming.”

As is the case with other ‘surveys’ alleging an overwhelming scientific consensus on global warming, the question surveyed had absolutely nothing to do with the issues of contention between global warming alarmists and global warming skeptics. The question Cook and his alarmist colleagues surveyed was simply whether humans have caused some global warming. The question is meaningless regarding the global warming debate because most skeptics as well as most alarmists believe humans have caused some global warming. The issue of contention dividing alarmists and skeptics is whether humans are causing global warming of such negative severity as to constitute a crisis demanding concerted action.

Either through idiocy, ignorance, or both, global warming alarmists and the liberal media have been reporting that the Cook study shows a 97 percent consensus that humans are causing a global warming crisis. However, that was clearly not the question surveyed.

Except that the Supreme Court has found that RANDOM drug testing violates the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.

"The Court noted that while the Fourth Amendment generally prohibits officials from conducting search and seizures without individualized suspicion, there does exist a "closely guarded" category of permissible suspicionless searches and seizures.

However, the Court held that the statute's drug-testing requirement did not fit within this category.

The Court emphasized that the proffered special need for drug testing must be substantial--important enough to override the individual's acknowledged privacy interest, sufficiently vital to suppress the Fourth Amendment's normal requirement of individualized suspicion."

So basically, yet another direct link of your beliefs leading right back to guess who? The Koch Brothers. I'll stick with getting my facts from the experts. You guys continue to show us what corporate fetch boys you are by getting your "science" from oil billionaires.

I don't know any of the specific arguments which would be important to know, but one the surface they were wrong.
IF a person does NOT want to be drug tested, they have an option/choice to NOT submit to a test. They are NOT unwittingly subjected to testing at any time. Please explain how drug testing can be legal in many private sector jobs & NOT welfare?
I have been tested 5-6 times (& always passed) & NOT for security, secret, or other jobs.
I have even been polygraphed to be a COOK in food service. I would consider polygraphs to be less dependable than drug tests. It seems that the courts do too since drug tests are admissable in court & polygraphs are not.
