Two Roundups – New Blogs For The Roll – And The Modern Image Of The Anti Smoking Lobby


Two Roundups a week for a while

As there is a lot to do, to get this blog the way that I want it and putting update addendas on normal posts is irritating me, there will be two Roundups a week until construction work is finished.

The anti smoking lobby

——

I have always regarded myself as a responsible smoker, respecting the rights for non smokers to have areas where they are free of secondary smoke and supporting measures to reduce the pressures on the young to take up smoking. But in Western Europe all reasonable measures for for these ends have already been taken and the anti smoking lobby has become home to the undesirable and bigoted elements of society who just want to find a group of people that they can persecute. These xenophobic types, unfortunately, are degrading the image of what should be a justified and worthy cause, that of reducing the numbers of smokers in society (which even as a smoker I support). I would like to give up smoking but as I do not wish to share in the image that the non smoking community has at the moment, I find that it is unwise to even try to be a non smoker, UNTIL THE PERSECUTION STOPS.

HOW THE ANTI SMOKING LOBBY LOOKS TO REASONABLE PEOPLE NOW


To all the non smokers and anti smokers (and I include myself as an anti smoker, especially where the young are concerned) who support reasonable and justifiable actions to discourage smoking be aware that the Xenophobes that have infiltrated our ranks are making us all look like the character above. it is up to us to separate the reasonable from the persecutors.

  2. I am not a smoker but I do think the treatment of smokers is just ridiculous. It is illogical on every level (anti-social? I have never been harassed by a group of smokers unlike drinkers), cost to the country (the taxes of smokers earn billions for the state) and as for manners, I have no idea when it became acceptable to be so intolerant and precious about anything.

    I appear to be on a soap box, how embarrassing. Sorry about that, but I do agree with you a lot.

    • I think that there are just people in this world who like to find groups of people to persecute Poppy. Most of the new regulations have crossed the line and have nothing to do with discouraging smoking but are something more sinister.

  3. So, Belgian Swine-hund, you refuse to stop lighting up. Vee have vays of making you stop…

    Oh well, at least you are not denying the tobacco holocaust or we would have to frog march you to the gas chamber, er, that is, smoking lounge.

    Did you see todays BBC? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/13251926

  4. Freezing street corner in the rain? Mmmwah-ha-ha! Zis ist only one of our methods. Vee are verking on a smoking lounge that can simulate a freezing street corner in the rain even in good weather. Vee vill call it zee “showers”!

    Where I live no smoking is allowed on hospital property, but I have seen people in wheelchairs rolling themselves out to the road just to smoke thru their tracheotomy holes.

    We also have “safety” cigarettes that extinguish themselves moments after you stop puffing. This is done under the guise of fire prevention but I’m sure it must really be a ploy by the disposable lighter industry.

    I have a feeling that very soon tobacco will be made illegal and marijuana will be legalized, like it is in California!

    • “a smoking lounge that can simulate a freezing street corner in the rain even in good weather” That would not surprise me at all in the current climate.

      If they make tobacco illegal it will be like alcohol prohibition in the 1920’s again. Organized crime will flourish and grow on a scale that cannot be imagined.

  5. Thank you for adding me to the roll! I am a smoker (cringe – waiting for all disapproving eyes to find me now..) and I fully agree with you.

    • No problems Raven or Ms Red (whichever you prefer). Responsible smokers respect others rights not to be bothered by smokers smoke but also stand up for their own rights, so screw the big brother eyes 😉

  6. Luckily, we are very close to a tavern where smoking is permitted (usually packed).

    Where we live bars can get a waiver from State Laws if they properly post the premises as being a smoking establishemnt, no yutes etc. On the way we pass another with patrons freezing and getting rained on for their anti-social behaviour.

    • That’s a good thing OHK. The right to choose the type of establishment that your free time is spent in, it’s a little thing that I call democracy. Rather than the Communist style state dictatorship that many developed countries seem to be slipping into.

      • Really, Prefectd, “democracy”? Isn’t that just two coyotes and a lamb voting on what’s for dinner? I’m pretty sure that smokers are the minority in this case. Soon, under the New World Order, smoking will be a cane-able offense and where will that leave you? A win-win situation if I know you at at all, naughty boy! After all, it’s for your own good…
