A Terrible Atrocity

23 Feb

Yes and I am sure that if governments didn’t show compassion to Aids victims the same would have been true for them, not on the same scale, of course. Dr. Siegel contributes where and how he discerns is correct. I don’t harbor a grudge against him. In the past year or more I have followed his blog, I never see him bashing smokers? I see him bashing unfair, corrupt and questionable practices of the Tobacco Control ANTZ, that are blind to an entire segment of the population, people who enjoy using tobacco. I realise his anti-smoking cause is a launching pad, but it isn’t his current crusade, I believe health is but that is threatened more than continuing to smoke, being it is only about the profits and not about the human lives involved.

Michael Siegel picked up the same story that I did last night:

According to an article in the Gloucester (UK) Citizen, the health scare over electronic cigarettes has led many adoption agencies in the UK to prohibit anyone who uses e-cigarettes from adopting children. In fact, some districts preclude anyone who has used an e-cigarette in the past 12 months from adopting.

His response was much the same as mine:

This story really turns my stomach. Moreover, it is just heartbreaking. How misguided this policy is. How devastating the consequences. Due to the anti-smoking groups’ dissemination of false and misleading information about the hypothetical consquences of vaping, actual harm is being done to many people.

This story reveals that not only is this harm being done to smokers who have decided to continue smoking rather than engage in a behavior that many health advocates say is as dangerous as…

Can the Scottish Government REALLY Ban Smoking in the Open Air?===Various Non-sequitures

21 Feb

Can I shoot down a Drone over my property? LOL Very excellent post.

Bolton Smokers Club

I’m not sure, but I think that General Bans on smoking are a Westminster matter. Thus, no matter how much the Propagandists try to imply that smoking can be banned in the open air by the Scottish Parliament, the fact is that the Scottish Parliament cannot make open air smoking a criminal offence. It is limited to ‘substantially enclosed places’, just as is England. I know that many football grounds and similar places ban smoking, but that is their choice, and their answer to anyone smoking could not be to call the police, merely because that person is smoking. They would have to eject that person from the ground for disobeying the club’s rules. That is quite different from enforcing a law of the land.

I draw this matter to the readers attention because of a report on the BBC website:

the headline states:

Time for an Oxford Union Debate: “The Tobacco Control Industry Is Corrupt”

16 Feb

Past time, so get it done.

Bolton Smokers Club

Over the last several years, the corruption of The Tobacco Control Industry has become more and more obvious. Even many Public Health Experts, such as Siegel, Phillips, Bates, and many, many others have said so. There are hundreds of them, who are themselves believers in the miasma effect of tobacco smoke, but are appalled by the intolerance. And yet they find it extremely difficult to declare that Big Pharma has taken over TC for its own commercial purposes. Perhaps they are afraid of being sued or sacked, or both. Or perhaps they do not have the evidence.

That is the reason that an ‘Oxford Union Debate’ is required. In those circumstances, generally speaking, in such debates, debaters can say what they want. That is the nature of such debates. People can say what they think might be happening, and can try to convince the members of the debating society that…

Public Health Officials PREFER you to smoke cigarettes. For Immediate Release

Public Health Officials PREFER you to smoke cigarettes. For Immediate Release.

Public Health Officials PREFER you to smoke cigarettes. For Immediate Release

15 Feb

Slander, Smear Campaign continues!

Vaping Links And More

For Immediate Release:

Public Health Officials prefer you to smoke cigarettes and they are getting away with it.

Around the world, many Public Health Officials, including Doctors, are falsely continuing to claim “e-cigarettes”, also known as “vaping” as a dangerous method to stop smoking, despite the expected protocol to normally show proof.

Not one official has provided proper documented evidence to their claims of “dangerous”, despite the severity; a first to those in what is normally considered a highly prestigious position of authority with these types of claims.

Apparently, they are using their prestige inappropriately and would rather you smoke cigarettes than to even try an electronic cigarette.

Their false claims, collusion, duplicity, hypocrisy and ineptitude, are confusing the masses, despite overwhelming scientific proof vaping is a better alternative to traditional cigarettes. They are quickly losing respect from their counterparts around the world.

These are just three quick examples of…

This Damned Cold!===Fascism

11 Feb

Yes and it must be fought!

Bolton Smokers Club

I should have know better. What seemed like a bit of inconvenience yesterday has been no fun at all today. So I have spent almost all day folded up on the couch, vaguely snoozing and vaguely watching TV. No experiments today. I haven’t yet finished reading my favourite blogs.

Even so, I have interrupted my reading to bring you Rehead’s contribution of today:

http://www.redheadfullofsteam.com/how-to-make-friends-and-influence-people/

Her article concerns a new Oz anti-smoker advert. You can watch the advert there.

There is no doubt that the advert gives the lie in a big, big way to ASH ET AL’s claims that they are not anti-smokER – that they are anti-smokING. Well, Debbie, the advert deliberately intends to shame smokers in the eyes of their friends and families and actively encourages those friends and families to sneer at smokERs, and revile them. Ostensibly, it is aimed at smokERs to shame them into stopping…

Our sector needs tidying up; it does not need destroying

10 Feb

IMPRESSED, PRESSED, PRESSING, IMPRESSIVE, IMPRESSION

Our sector needs tidying up; it does not need destroying.

The electronic cigarette, personal vapouriser, call them what you will, is in my humble opinion a product group that has the potential to be a global catalyser of positive change that is deserving of Nobel appreciation.

However, we may never see its true potential due to the campaign of misinformation and craven captilualtive regulation that is attempting to cripple the nascent begins of the vaping phenomenon. The Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), in its attempt to regulate these products under the auspice of existing tobacco product regulation, is one of the most ill-judged, morally questionable and divisive pieces of legislation that the EU has the arrogance to commit to law.

It is wrong on so many counts that one has to judge its framing on a level beyond sheer incompetence. It will have the potential to destroy what has been created in the past 6 years.”

The Baccy/Alcohol Experiment (2)

8 Feb

EXCELLENCE “Ever since the ‘Master Settlement’ in the USA, Tobacco Product Manufacturers have become silent. It is a matter of fact that, as part of the Master Settlement, tobacco companies agreed to ‘shut the fuck up’ (I do not often swear). You cannot blame them, since the Master Settlement was enormously to their advantage. Their advantage was gained from the totalitarian aspect of the Master Settlement – all tobacco companies involved just increased the price of a packet of cigs by 50 cents, collected that money and passed it to the State Treasuries. But what is important is that the main tobacco companies, collectively, gained a monopoly of supply.

====

The stench of corruption is like the stench of carbon monoxide – its presence cannot be detected by smell or sight. but it is a killer.

There is no intelligent or scientific justification for the smoking ban. None at all. All the blather about plain packs and car smoking bans are idiotic. Is that why the Prime Minister has decided to let these ridiculous dictats go through? Is it because they are like banning skiing in Barbados? Is it like banning mountaineering in Belgium?

Cameron and his pal, health sec Hunt, via the prostitute, Alison, have decided to cave in to the New Aristocracy. Or rather, they have not decided – they have capitulated.

====

I am an adult and I can decide to enjoy tobacco. I can also decide to enjoy alcohol and coffee and tea and roast beef, etc. ‘Children’ will become adults, and thus bans which apply to children will no longer apply to them when the become adults. Thus, it is reasonable to ban children from enjoying tobacco, if, in fact, such enjoyment is dangerous.

Parents will stop their children from doing stupid things until those children become independent. Even then, parents will act as a backstop if their children do something stupid. ‘The Bank of Mum and Dad’ comes to mind.

There is a conclusion.

Why is it that billions of dollars are being spent upon tobacco control world-wide when Ebola is killing thousands NOW, and only a few millions of dollars are being spent?

It is because of the ORGANISATION. The ORGANISATION is more important than the result.

====

To the WHO, deaths NOW from Ebola are not important. A few thousand deaths NOW do not matter. What matters to these aristocrats is how millions of putative deaths from smoking can make them wealthier.”

Just to complete the the experiment, today I rolled a fag with my own stuff alone. It was the wadded stuff. That stuff is the stuff which I over-fermented as a result of compressing the leaves by rolling them up into a wad and tying the wad tightly with string.

Yesterday, I said that there was no difference between the whiskey flavoured fags and the unflavoured, but, having tried my unflavoured stuff again, there is a difference.

The big problem is that it is very hard to describe tastes, or even to remember them sometimes. I suppose that a little example might explain a little. Suppose that you are used to having only half a teaspoon of sugar in your cup of tea, but someone adds another teaspoon full of sugar, when you take a sip, you would screw your face up and go, “Ugh! Far too sweet!”. The wadded…

A Little Experiment with Baccy and Alcohol===The Totally Wicked Fight for Ecigs

6 Feb

…….Storm the Bastille!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Bolton Smokers Club

I’ve been thinking about this little experiment for some time.

I have some home-grown stuff which is now several months aged (that is, picked and ‘cured’ around the beginning of September 2014). It really is weird that, after several months, whenever I open the plastic box in which the stuff is stored very dry, it still emits a strong, sweet smell. I don’t know what LegIron would say, but that suggests to me that there are still ‘volatile chemical reactions’ happening within the stuff. I don’t know what the smell might be. It could be ammonia, I suppose, but it does not quite smell like ammonia (the smell emitted by urine).

Anyway, I have decided upon a little experiment. I have taken a small sample of my home-grown stuff and treated it to a tot of whiskey. Here is a pic:
