GOOD! Just because there's no "smoke" doesn't mean there's no poison, and I clearly see vapors of some sort around these "safe" devices. A common industry tactic is to substitute something which has not yet been tested for something which has been shown to be dangerous, and then piously claim that they have "fixed" the issue (and also state how generous and moral they are because the previous chemicals haven't been "proven beyond doubt" to be poisonous).

This is just stupid.

Society moved to fix the problem and now they are going to punish the fix. How stupid can you be.

I'm not sure it is a "fix". My boyfriend has joined the "vaping community" since August.(Yes, we joke about the whole community thing) He has tried quitting smoking for years, and now he is slowly dialing down the nicotine. What I have seen is him carrying that damned plastic cig around like pacifier. He has one charging in the car, one in the kitchen, and one in the den. I have taken a few hits, and there is a definite nicotine buzz. Thank God, I was able to quit over six years ago. So even though he doesn't smell like smoke, he is still ingesting nicotine, and I wonder how much I am inhaling through second hand, "vapor". It's always one thing or another!

No, some money hungry, right wing, "libertarian" type came up with these ridiculous devices in protest of laws preventing smokers from poisoning the lungs of those around them in public places. The crybabies.

About four years from now we'll look back at photos of these e cigs the way we look at photos of mullets today. Not fondly, but with ridicule.

The mask is off. The smoking ban and health fascist crowd used to tout smoking bans as standing up for non smokers rights. Now that there is no second hand smoke to ban they still aren't satisfied. Do you people really want this much governmental control in your lives? They will be banning doughnuts next. Actually that doesn't sound far fetched at all (Just 10 years ago that prediction would have been laughable) I'm all for treating your body with respect and leading a healthy lifestyle but we are walking down a dangerous road that is stamping out individual liberty. Precedents are being set, and the freedoms that supporters of such laws would stamp out may come back to haunt them when one of their pet freedoms is endangered. Trust me......you are shooting yourselves in the foot.

They should ban homosexuality entirely because these are the types of people infringing upon our rights across the board.

Maybe they can invent an e-penis for you so you don't spread any diseases since you gave up wearing condoms.

Thank you.
Don't forget the Lavon affair and operation Susannah as well. Check out veteranstoday.com . They are VERY informative and subjective journalists. Compared to the zionist run media here it is like being on a different planet. Jonas E Alexis is arguably their best columnist. Please, check it out!

Those identifying as homosexual and the far left loon liberals are out to infringe or HAVE inringed on the 1st and 2nd amendments. They have also violated children's rights with child placement by not providing the endowment of a 'female mother' in the child's life. Thuse denying such a child the basic human rights of having a mother. How hateful.

False. Those wishing to deny rights to gays and lesbians are infringing on 1st amendment rights. 2nd amendment rights are a totally separate issue.

Otherwise, this is a nice rant.

Why did this thread become an anti-gay/pro-gay debate/rant? Typical topix nonsense. This thread is about e cigarettes, guys!
