Do the anti-smokers actually believe in the crap they come up with?
Their latest piece of garbage is a case in point –
Millions of lives? God give me strength!
And it’s people on low incomes who have the most to gain – not just in terms of their health but their wallet too, new research shows.
Are they seriously suggesting that taxing the poor will make them wealthier? It would make tobacco control wealthier without a doubt but the poor will just get poorer.
There again they are using “computer models”. Anyone who knows anything at all about computers will know the old GIGO adage – Garbage In Garbage Out. Computers will churn out whatever the programmer wants to see and therefore are as trustworthy as the person running them. So when you have a crowd with a fanatical agenda it’s no surprise they can produce “evidence” to back up their wildest claims.
Deborah Arnott, chief executive of health charity ASH, said higher taxes do work to help people quit, and said they can help fund stop smoking services.
Ah yes. I can see Debs has her eye on the ball all right. More money for her and her crew. That woman is shameless in her money grabbing excuses.
Now let’s look at the key word in her little statement – “help”. How is robbing the poor of more taxes helping them exactly? This is not “help”, it’s blatant “force”. It’s like saying I helped a bloke to lie on the pavement by whacking him over the head with a brick. Either she genuinely thinks that forcing people is helping them, in which case she is insane and a tyrant, or else she knows damn well she is lying in which case she is beyond evil [and a tyrant].
I wonder about the state of mind of these people. Do they seriously think they are helping people? Are they really concerned about health? Do they have sleepless nights worrying about all those poor people trapped in a nicotine addiction and who would do anything to quit the evil weed?
No. I don’t believe that for a second.
These people far from being concerned about smokers are only concerned with their cushy little jobs. They have found a nice little number where they are paid to lobby for increases in their own income. The smokers, and in particular the poor, are merely collateral damage. They don’t care a jot about smoking rates unless those rates can provide an excuse for a raise in their salaries.
They claim Big Tobacco is evil?
It’s isn’t a patch on Big Tobacco Control.
