It should be apparent by now:
Stupid people (smokers) cannot avoid a stupidity (tobacco) tax. I would say tatoo a big "L" for loser on their forehead, but we can already identify them by their yellow fingers

Gee, that sure does sound familiar....
"The National Socialist Workers Party' anti-tobacco rhetoric drew from an earlier generation's eugenics rhetoric and also reflected an ethic of bodily purity and zeal for work.3 Tobacco use was attacked as an "epidemic," a "plague," as "dry drunkenness," and as "lung masturbation"; tobacco and alcohol abuses were "diseases of civilization" and "relics of a liberal lifestyle."
History knows your kind.

Regardless of who may or may not have agreed, it is difficult to dismiss the idea that an affliction (such as the pathological state known as "nicotine addiction") striking one of four or even one of five adults--after decades spent fighting the disease--qualifies as epidemic, or as an epidemic. "Pandemic" would be a better fit, though.

Maybe you should stop to consider - Some people JUST WANT TO SMOKE!- An HATE being told that they NEED TO QUIT!
Just like SOME people JUST NEED TO HEAR THEMSELVES TALK - Even though they have been told MANY TIMES that they should REALLY QUIT!

You don't need to quit smoking. You need to quit poisoning others.
Please, smoke more. Smoke as much as possible. The more you smoke, the better.
