Giving ASH what they deserve — 18 Comments

  1. You bastards, mocking such a beautiful young lady, just look at those sexy eyes, I presume they are eyes only when the questions got a bit difficult they looked more like surgical incisions.

     

    • Welcome AJ!  Beautiful young lady?  Where?  Is my eyesight failing?  Unless you mean Duffy?  She has a gentle enough accent but has the face of a headmistress in a foul mood.  Would I kick her out of bed for eating biscuits?  Definitely.  She'd never get in in the first place.

      • I think AJ's right. Such a beautiful lass she…

        …oh, wait…

        Damn! Wrong glasses again. Ah, that's better. Lord! Kick her out of bed for eating biscuits? Taking a good look I wouldn't let her in bed in the first place.

  2. The problem is that the likes of Duffer see themselves as the righteous ones, They are so comprehensively brainwashed that no matter what facts you put before them, if those facts don't coincide with what they believe, then the facts must be wrong.

    "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me."

    The rod and staff in this instance being the tenets of Tobacco Control. And when people are wedded to a doctrine to such a degree, argument and presentation of irrefutable facts are irrelevant,. They will be ignored, because they don't fit the narrative.

    • The priceless moment was where it was pointed out to her that she's part of the tobacco industry herself.  The logic is sound and she did NOT like that at all.  She didn't know whether to explode or cry. 

      The worst aspect of all was that she was being hammered by avowed non-smokers, so she couldn't even come back with the old waffle that they are all in the pay of Big Tobacco.

  3. Just what more do these interfering  prod nosed busibodies want

     All interests that these whining left wing illiberalself righteous arseholes happen to hate are always "vested"

    another leftie buzz word !

     

    • Basically what they want is for everyone [except smokers] to be as fanatical on the subject as they are.  They really do see themselves as saviours of the world.  "Vested interests"?  "Funded by"?  "Sponsored by"?  All the same pathetic meaningless argument.

  4. Thanks Grandad for the links to all those 'deserving' causes.Unfortunately, for me, never a great 'charity' donator to begin with, that well healed woman of recent Rehab controversy finally put paid to any inkling I ever had towards donations.

    In the meantime, I will continue to 'like' your postings of this blog/diary on Farcebook and will continue to 'share' them as well.

    • Likewise – I won't support any charity whose staff are earning far more than my pension.  The only charities I subscribe to are those who I know for a fact badly need the money.

      Thanks for the "shares" or whatever they're called.  Do you actually use those buttons under the post?  Just wondering as I was seriously thinking of removing them.

  5. "An industry whose … main interests lie with its profits"

    As opposed to someone who has no real job of work, sucking from the public teat.

    "Lives lost early"

    I hope that when she leaves this world, it's wishing that it had come 30 years earlier.

    • Can you point me in the direction of any company whose interests don't lie in profits?  Is she so wrapped up in her narrow minded little world that she doesn't realise that the purpose of any and every private enterprise is to make profits?

      She'll have to stop buying food and clothes if she is so worried about the profit motive.  Or maybe she thinks that Tescos, Waitrose and the rest are all gubmint funded too?

  6. Here in Vermont, the "activists" are much more (rightly) concerned with the location of wind towers and solar farms in our forests and on top of our mountain ridges so big tobacco is pretty much ignored overall.

    On the other hand, the powers-that-be are seriously considering legalizing marijuana which will, of course, turn every single one of us into zoned out pot heads.

    • Don't worry – we have some serious eco-nutcases here too, and a plentiful supply of those visual monstrosities they call wind farms. 

      They are also considering legalising/decriminalising [not sure which] marijuana here too.  Maybe the general idea is to get us all so stoned we stop complaining?

      • Maybe the general idea is to get us all so stoned we stop complaining?

        Now that's a thought…

        • I'm planning a trip Stateside next year and watching very carefully.

          The flights to the East Coast are much shorter for me. I'm told Autumn – sorry, Fall – is spectacular in VT and having it enhanced would be rather good.

          • Twenty Rothmans – meet KirkM.  KirkM – meet Twenty Rothmans.

            Now the two of you are introduced, you can meet [in VT] in a grand blue haze.  You can raise a glass in my name!
