You must think the rest of the world is stupid. We can smell smoke on you a mile away. You're not fooling anyone, and that teenager you brag about will be devastated if you don't survive your NEXT heart attack.

Here's what I hate: When you're on a forum, and people don't know how to correctly type a sentence. Also, when they type in all caps. Just little things. I mean, seriously, who doesn't know how to type? It's not too hard to be grammatically correct. Take the time, think it out, try to spell most of your words correctly...use the space bar...little things, really.

A book released by The Fraser Institute, calls into question the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) assessment that second-hand smoke, also known as environmental tobacco smoke (ETS), causes cancer. The authors assert that the EPA "was caught red-handed in a conspiracy of public dis-information."

The book examines a recent decision by North Carolina Judge William Osteen, who said the EPA started from the preconceived claim that ETS is a risk for lung cancer and set out to prove that claim by whatever means imaginable.

The Court determined that the EPA had knowingly, willfully, and aggressively disseminated false information.

In 1998, a World Health Organization study concluded: "Our results indicate no association between childhood exposure to ETS [environmental tobacco smoke] and lung cancer risk." The WHO study also noted that there was only "weak evidence" and "insignificant" evidense for a risk of lung cancer from spousal or workplace ETS.

So the scientific jury is still out, but anti-smoking zealots -- like global warming alarmists -- don't much care about the facts.

>>Explain to me again why anyone other than military personnel or police officers needs to own a semi-automatic weapon.<<

You probably need to understand what a semi-automatic weapon is. I think you are confusing it with an AUTOMATIC weapon, which will keep firing as long as the trigger is pressed. A semi-automatic requires a trigger pull for each shot, just like in all those Western movies.

There is lots of confusion about weapons, thanks in no small part to the media, who consistently get it wrong. After the VT shootings, the NPR "FBI reporter" said the shooter may have had "automatic clips"! If you don't understand the humor -- and the idiocy -- of her statement, then you don't understand weaponry.
