thanks for the pointless correction of my spelling* :fly:

So camel coming out with cigarettes that taste like candy and have boxes that look like candy is not a direct relation to them targeting kids? How can you say that they are not targeting little kids with flavors like orange dreams and strawberry wonderland, haha.

I'm going to disagree. I think saying that those target kids is sensationalist. I think they target the same discerning young adults who also like to go out to happy hours and drink varieties of flavored cocktails with friends. People who enjoy options. I don't see little kids outside of bars begging for Mai Tais or Royal Fucks.

Because this shit pisses me off. This is why I can't go home and smoke a fucking joint after work. This is why I can't carry my firearm if I decide to go into Chicago, one of the most crime ridden cities in the nation. This is why I can't buy a new car without a GPS tracking system that tells anyone with the capability of manipulating On-Star's service where I am. This is why I can't buy a violent video game without having to pull out my ID.

Yes I'm pitching a goddamn conniption because right now there are men and women in a shithole of country putting their lives on the line for someone else's freedom, people being shot at by those with the attitudes that their narrow minded ideals should dictate the morality of others yet people in this fucking country and happy to sign away the very concepts of liberty to feel safer, to pass the blame onto someone else so they don't have to take some fucking responsibility for their own actions.

I am tired of these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane. :mad:

putting their lives on the line for our freedom?? HAHAHAHAHAH
OIL WAR, LOL

Everybody that fucking drinks water dies, it's the deadliest substance on the planet right after a mixture of 79% nitrogen and ~21% oxygen.

Anyone who thinks suing tobacco companies is okay is reaching a LITTLE too far. Who in the fuck above a 3 IQ would think that sticking burning leaves into your mouth and sucking on them could POSSIBLY be remotely good for you?

Everything kills, everything causes cancer, (I should know, I avoided all the "bad" ones before I got it), stop all the bullshit and get on with what life we have left already.

And people who don't take the time to find out what they're putting in their own bodies should quit their fucking bitching. Either take some responsibility for your own choices or not but leave my diet the fuck out of it.

jesus, you're being an idiot :lol:

NO ONE is taking away what you can eat...want to eat burgers til your colon explodes? GO FOR IT...this is an unnecessary ingredient that is making our WHOLE COUNTRY FAT, AND is a burden on the health care system too

How are cigarettes NOT bad for you?

Have you ever smoked a bunch of cigarettes and then gone for a jog? They encourage you to inhale like 3 times as much oxygen as normal to keep going. You need oxygen to live. Therefore smoking is beneficial.

But why ban trans fats when there are so many other things that are even worse for you, more of a drain on the healthcare system and more rampant in our society?

First of all trans fats do occur naturally though I understand they're currently used just to save money in preparation of processed foods. If I want to eat a fucking cheeseburger made with 90% trans fats that should be my right. I don't care if it has no nutritional value nor do I care what other people's reasons are for not liking it. My fucking choice.

The whole country is fat due to the collective laziness of America, not just the food. The strain on the health care system is due to insurance companies that we willingly patronize allowing diseases stemming from unhealthy diets to be covered.

The bottom line is that no one should have the authority to decide what goes into my body. Not a fucking soul.

You know why cigarettes aren't banned? The ONLY reason they're still out there? Taxes.

If there were some sort of tax on trans fat, no way in hell would it be banned, it's not about health it's about money

people have the right to smoke and drink...big business will not let those be band, ever...nor will the tons of people who use them

this is something that is a completely unnecessary health risk AND serves no real purpose...if you could get a buzz from trans fat I might be on the other side of the fence here :lol:

If it served no real purpose it wouldn't be used. It saves those companies money. Don't like it? Don't buy the food. If enough people agree with you the companies that do things like that will go out of business.

That's how a free market works. Self-regulating. People want trans fats because they like cheap big macs. Voting with one's wallet is far more important than passing feel good laws.

I think it's just useless legislation, that's all. It's wasteful of governmental resources. It's really retarded that insurance companies are getting rich, showing record profits while the average joe can't afford insurance, family doctors are going out of practice because they can't cover their malpractice insurance and we're banning trans fats.

it's really stupid. No wonder the rest of the world laughs at us

I dont see how you cannot think tobacco companies are not targeting youth, lol. Ask 10 little kids and they probably wouldnt have a clue what a Mai Tai is. Ask them what a strawberry is they will know. It is natural when your company makes a living off of killing people to start trying to find new users. The younger the user the more chance of getting them hooked, for life. You really dont think that tobacco companies frown upon having little kids smoke do you?

big business would sell you rat poison painted as a burger if they could get away with it...I can guarantee you no consumer ever said,"You know, this would be 10x better if it just had trans fats!!!" :fly:
