“When it comes to idiots, America’s got more than its fair share.
If idiots were energy, it would be a source that would never run out.”
– Lewis Black

Property Rights for all include Smokers Rights!Thomas Frieden:?Idiot Alert: CDC Head Dr. Tom Frieden Behind NYC Smoking/Soda Bans. There is no reason for Dr. Thomas Frieden to keep his job. He may have been ideally suited to fight a war on those dastardly big sodas, but he is intellectually unarmed when we are at war with a deadly disease. President Obama is urging hospitals across the country to protect Americans by learning and following the proper protocols. Well, Mr. President, how about protecting us from Dr. Frieden? Sorry, but a guy who finds sodas and second-hand smoke to be a bigger threat to America than Ebola-stricken travelers really has no business being the head of the CDC!

USA: Brad Rodu.
?Federal Survey Data on Tobacco: It’s Not About The Children. I have documented for several years a nonstop decline in smoking rates among American teens.

?because they could not pay their debts to a Chinese contracting company, Tian Ze Tobacco. The company unilaterally imposed prices – forcing farmers to accept what they were offered.
