More Selective 'Success'

 Uma Thurman 

Anyone notice the statistical jiggery-pokery in this article, intended to give the impression that the current/recent anti-smoker campaign is ‘successful’? The reduction the anti camp report is for ADULT smokers over a period of 10 years - I wonder why no mention of youth smoking ? What we really need to know is how much reduction since smoke bans were put in place in 2006. More importantly, is that reduction good enough to warrant this regression to a society more akin to 1930’s Germany than 21st century Britain involving the subjugation of minority groups such as smokers, and increasingly drinkers, the overweight, the inactive etc AND are there any resultant benefits? 

It is a fact that most smoke bans have resulted in the halt of a decades long decline in smoking and have often heralded an INCREASE.  (eg.The percentage of young people smoking [in Scotland]  fell from 31% to 25% between 1999 and 2004, but soared to 30% in 2007.) It would actually be reasonable to expect a decline, not because more people have quit, but because of the oppressive methods employed by anti-smoker fanatics, effectively forcing any reasonably astute smoker ‘off the radar’.

If you believe that any of those selective figures are representative of reality today, you must be living in the same land of abundant clouds and cuckoos as those who suggest them. Who, in their right mind is going to admit to being a smoker in todays climate? ... Only the most gullibly who believe the rubbish that the anti-tobacco industry spews out and who fail to appreciate the consequences of trusting the untrustworthy! 
“Oh yes, I’m a smoker, now you can treat be like a child abuser and a modern day German jew. You can refuse to treat me on the NHS; You can refuse to allow me somewhere to live or work or adopt a needy child; you can fine me £000’s for dropping a bit of fag ash, or send me to jail because I won’t comply with righteous diktats; you can incite the local Hitler youth to assault me while shouting ‘ciggi busters!‘ (just for their ‘harmless’ bit of fun of course). Oh yes, treat me as a sub-human cos I smoke, I love being abused and humiliated” 
Anti-smoker ‘Health campaigners’ (now there’s one of the best examples of euphemism), should give their heads a slap as they know as well as I that those figures cannot be anywhere near accurate!

Anti-smoker ‘Health campaigners’ have not, from what I can see, improved health one bit, on any level using any measure! The opposite is more likely to be true! While life expectancy has improved as it has done for centuries, regardless as to the prevalence of smokers/smoking, almost all ‘smoke related’ disease incidence is spiraling out of control while smoking has reduced consistently over a generation. In USA, Lung cancer increased by over 30% over a period of 8 years (2000-2008) (ACS stats copied in appendix), while over the same period US population increased by a mere 8%. A marvelous success there? Heart disease has been reducing over a number of years, but why this is classed as a ‘smoke related’ disease is slightly baffling, when it not only kills smokers but is the BIGGEST killer of non-smokers. Improvements here are down to better treatment of hypertension etc! 
For men who never smoked, heart disease was the single largest cause of death from age 50 on. The death rates for heart disease (for male non-smokers) were higher than the combined death rates for lung cancer, colon cancer and prostate cancer at any age. .... It is the number one killer for non-smoking men from age 50 and for non-smoking women from age 60”.(source:
JNCI 2008 Stibich Ph.D (2009)) 

This certainly puts into sharp perspective the alleged link between smoking and heart disease - in fact there is NOT ONE smoke related disease that DOES NOT affect non-smokers too - food for thought for anyone with a rational brain!

Some anti-tobacco drones actually believe that their cause is just and that everything they are told by their high priests is unquestionably true, they dutifully go out into the world to spread their word! These people are dangerous! The more they fallaciously blame smoking for every ailment under the sun and cast smokers as murderers etc the more they encourage the gullible to oppress and abuse others and the more society is degraded. The more they perpetuate the myth that lung cancer (LC) is a self inflicted smokers disease, the more people will die from it. LC heads the cancer leader-board but because of the righteous, it has become a ‘non-persons’ disease and as a result gets only around 5% of all funding. Anti-tobacco and their lackeys fill their boots and bank accounts - diverting valuable resources away from research into causes and cures. result:  MORE non-smoker and smoker DEATHS FROM LUNG CANCER! The anti-smoker movement IS causing deaths!!

Why are we seeing these ‘success’ figures at this time, along with a frantic campaign to indoctrinate an increasingly skeptical public in narrow negative stereotypes of smokers and a despicable exploitation of the emotive responses to protect the children by use of false or grossly exaggerated ‘harm’ allegedly caused by SHS? …. Because they are losing the initiative and are frantically trying to re-establish it! ... Those Politicians worldwide, who were easily manipulated by the fanatics in anti-tobacco to vigorously support them are being kicked out of office and replaced by those not so easily deceived who are just beginning to question the wisdom of such a destructive and socially divisive so called ‘public health campaign. 

It is clear to me, and I'm sure many others, that anti-smoker freaks are just beginning to realise that their gravy train is struggling and the tracks ahead look unstable. They are beginning to realise that their enemy is no longer the big tobacco companies whose only real interest is bottom line profit,(which is doing very well at the moment) BUT PEOPLE; honest, law abiding, ordinary PEOPLE who have got their measure. PEOPLE who are not motivated by money but the realisation that their freedom and their childrens future is at stake. I think they realise that those PEOPLE are increasing in number every day, from all walks of life, from all over the world and THEY represent a far more formidable enemy. 

It is not all done and dusted just yet - BUT - the writing is on the wall!

California Cancer Spreads Across USA

Middletown City, New York proudly follows California towards a perfect dystopia  
(California’s virulent social cancer metastasizes)
I tend to comment on news stories more often than I blog. The trouble with this is that moderators control what content they are prepared to accept. This is one of those where only two of three linked comments were allowed so I am recording it all here with a couple of modifications. The article outlines ‘tough’ new laws on smoking in the open air at Middleton, New York - punishable by IMPRISONMENT! 

Hi, I'm from UK but what happens your side of the pond usually ends up at my side eventually. I just heard about the invasion of perverted puritans who have usurped common sense in your county and I am livid at the developments there so what it must be like for you guys I cannot imagine. We have our own fanatics, nutters and sadistic puritans here just the same as you, but they haven’t gone as far as yours just yet - but they will, if you allow then to succeed there.
Someone once said that fascism WOULD return to civilized society and when it did, it would be in the shape of a man wearing a white coat with a stethoscope around his neck - and I though he was a nutter! 
Here we are in the C21 and it is happening before our very eyes! The trouble is that so many are totally blind to it all. Whether we are seeing the rise of fascism, emerging from this new religion of 'healthianity', or something more sinister is not yet clear - but it is clear is that it will not end well for ANYONE other than a few in privileged positions!
If you think this is about smoking then you need to wake up, shape up, get out and look deeper. This is about control - a new fanatical temperance movement that wants to turn everyone into compliant ants but living a 'pure' life. Alcohol control puritans are already well established as are anti-obesity fanatics who want to control what you eat and drink- waiting in the wings. Who knows what their sights are on, after they have brought these groups to heel! THEY ARE TAKING YOUR FREEDOM and feeding off you like parasites. 
There are so many people who are totally oblivious of this or gullibly think that because they don’t smoke or drink etc that this madness will not affect them - IT WILL,  they WILL eventually get a rude awakening - probably when it is too late for them to do anything about it. Find out about the lies and destructive nature of anti-tobacco here;
They [anti-smokers] ARE well organized and have many anon writers/commentators on articles like this to get YOU to believe that EVERYONE agrees with their plans etc. to demoralize and isolate you, their opponent. They produce dodgy polls, studies etc and constantly deny the substantial evidence that shows there is no 'harm' caused by passive smoking (ETS). It is all but inconceivable that they are not aware, but they continue to perpetuate their flawed evidence, knowing that the gullible will follow and continue to 'believe' their 'experts’. (Same in the UK).
At the moment they are using the nazi tactic of exploiting children;
"The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is PERCEIVED as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation." -Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler
They are NOT interested in the health of children - They USE them to de-normalize and to incite people to despise and fear smokers then use them to justify draconian and normally unacceptable measures/laws that take away more individual freedoms. 
ETS is harmless to children, in fact it is more often BENEFICIAL to them; for instance the Largest European WHO study (Boffetta et al) proved by their standards,that ETS prevented children from getting cancer later in life. or that ETS prevents child asthma (Hjern et al). Many explain this under the ‘Hygiene Hypothesis’ (google it).This does NOT prevent anti smokers from claiming harm AND many, even many smokers, do believe this misinformation! Of course they don’t need to prove anything when it comes to childrens’ health, the suggestion is sufficient. (though the choice between preventing ‘cancer’ or ‘glue ear’ is no competition in my view.)

This article lauds California as being the leader in the anti-smoker banning league, the epicenter of this aggressive destructive cancer, apparently as if it is something to be proud of! (god save us from fools and idiots!) Did you know that California was ALSO the epicenter of the US eugenics movement that coercively sterilized some 60,000 Americans, barred the marriage of thousands, forcibly segregated thousands in "colonies," and persecuted untold numbers in ways we are just learning!
It was California that inspired Hitler to carry out his eugenics program! At the end of WW2, many of Hitler eugenicists were prosecuted for crimes against humanity but it is believed that Californian eugenicist were allowed to continue to practice and no doubt tutor the present doctors and scientists that have promoted their State to the capital of the out-of-control, tobacco control empire. Is THAT something to be proud of? That cancer is now attacking YOU!
You will not be able to compromise with these fanatical puritans - EVER - they will just continue to take more and more of your freedoms for their own perverted purposes - taking slice after slice from that proverbial salami sausage! You cannot reason with cancer, Only direct action will work!
Get together with all freedom loving people, go to your parks in numbers and light up together - even if you are a non-smoker, and make this law unworkable - bring it into disrepute - call the bluff of these pontificating puritans AND do it publicly. If you want your children to enjoy the freedoms you have had since WW2 - DO IT and ask others to do it too. The alternative is unthinkable and unacceptable - both there in the US and here in the UK!
Your fight is my fight, your victory will be my victory just as your surrender will adversely affect us in the UK.
Does anyone think, like me, that it is a tad more than a coincidence that California holds the dubious honour of being the world leader and epicenter of both the earlier eugenics movement AND the more recent fanatical anti-smoker movement? Is it also a coincidence that the apparent end of the eugenics movement in the early 1950‘s marked the emergence of the current anti-tobacco movement? (Skills transfer) 
Has the Californian cancer metastasized to Britain? 


On a lighter note, has anyone noticed the physical similarities between the ultimate Californian anti-tobacco fanatic Stanton Glantz, and the infamous serial killer, Dr Harold Shipman?
