Fascism From Tobacoo Use
Yesterday, I was writing on the time left until the digital transition and government take over of the air waves and the more stringent regulation of them. However, I was reminded that we have less than a week until they take over the tobacco industry by letting the FDA regulate tobacco.
I don’t know if any of you have been watching, or even care about the administrations takeover of the country. I don’t mean that in a good, “They are really paying attention, and are going to fix it.” kind of way. This is more like the “Hostel Takeover” of one corporation over another. It was almost brutal how they have forced those corporations that didn’t want the bailout money to take it, or the ones who needed it but wanted to pay it back were told no, we will tell you when. This is what the World Bank does to countries, then take control of them.
While trying to do some research for this blog, I could only find articles telling of why those who sponsor this action, do so. Yes they are sad and tragic, however they don’t show any reason for taking away peoples right to smoke. And most of all, no reason to hand it over to a department of the Federal Government that has shown that it is willing to turn a blind eye to the pharmaceutical companies. This is just another way to control the people in their everyday lives.
Everything this administration has said they were going to do in the first six months has not happened, because of “What they were left to deal with.” or so we are being told. Granted, Rep Waxmen has been trying for years to get the “The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act” passed, it wasn’t until this administration took power that it happened.
Rep. Henry Waxman has worked for over ten years to get a tobacco regulation bill passed in the House. The 326-102 House vote was a victory for Waxman, but he says that it has taken the legislation far too long to be passed. Both, John McCain and Barrack Obama, support the legislation.
Under this law we could see the price of all tobacco products skyrocket due to outlandish regulations.
The bill would give the Food and Drug Administration the power to regulate tobacco (both cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products), restrict tobacco advertising and impose new federal penalties for selling tobacco products to minors.
Under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, tobacco and other products containing nicotine could not be outlawed, but the FDA could require manufacturers to reduce or eliminate cancer-causing chemicals found in cigarette smoke. The FDA would also be allowed to ban menthol and other cigarette flavoring, and candy flavored cigars and cigarettes would be banned.
This is almost certain to become law later this month, and will be signed into law by Obama, who is said to be in favor of this action to REGULATE the industry. Why wouldn’t Obama be in favor of another industry taken over or controlled by his administration. Although the common voter may not see this as anything more than Obama trying to save the economy, and “SAVE THE CHILDREN”, a study of history shows regulations of this kind are steps in the stairway of Fascism. Don’t believe it, study Mussolini and “Friendly Fascism”.
Keep your eyes open, and pray for us all.
Ps. This really piss’s me off because, I am a menthol smoker!
