'Second-hand' smoke no danger

Lest we forget, I would like to return to the fallacy that environmental tobacco smoke presents a danger to non-smokers.

I have been working on an essay on this topic, and after re-reading what I've written so far, I realise that it is too long and detailed for a blog. But I still feel the need to remind my readers of the reason they are being marginalised and on what basis this whole smoking ban racket is justified.

So, I found two little movies on-line, and a short article too, that will help you to understand that what is being done to smokers is unjust and wrong. Enjoy these short informative pieces:

Hi John, I hope you are well. I have a list of 20 odd here including:

“The world must protest the ongoing deceit and the squandering of public monies for rigged and incompetent ETS studies. And people should feel offended by the complicity and sham paternalism of health authorities and of profitable tax exempt charities. Such an officially imposed tyranny has no place in countries that claim and presume to be free, enlightened, and just. We are not children, nor bumbling simpletons who need to be deceived for our own good — a deceit that is doubly grating when the wilfully flawed surgeon general’s report on ETS runs against statutory requirements of “ensuring and maximizing the quality, objectivity, utility, and integrity of information (including statistical information) disseminated by a government agency.”
