Alliance of Prigs and Profiteers Teams Up to Ban E-Cigs

A "Baptist-bootlegger" alliance, John Tierney calls it, of the kind that conspired together to keep Prohibition on the books -- the Baptists hated the sin of drink, and the bootleggers loved the profit of smuggling illegal, and ergo pricey, liquor.

Now the new prigs -- the left, determined to ban any habit they don't personally enjoy -- is teaming up with cigarette companies to regulate e-cigs out of existence.

Note that partly due to the e-cig, only 15% of the public now smokes-- the lowest fraction ever. And that's the biggest one-year decline ever.

I take this personally. I quit smoking largely thanks to the e-cig. I had quit smoking before, usually for a year or longer, but would have that one bad week where I just felt like smoking and then blam, a week later, I'm back up to a pack and a half a day (and moving towards two packs).

That doesn't happen with the e-cig. If I want nicotine, if I'm really craving it, I have a near-perfect substitute with no ill health effects. So I don't backslide.

Essentially, leftist moralist prigs -- who really should find some stupid left-wing god and get into religion and stop trying to force their quasireligion of leftist morality on us -- are teaming up with Big Tobacco to get smokers to begin filling themselves with cancer and heart disease again.

And this is what we call "government" -- powerful forces of money and Satanic morality teaming up to affirmatively murder people.

BTW: I'm greatly reducing my nicotine intake because i discovered it did have a health consequence -- it was a key trigger for my panic. Made me anxious and sometimes spurred panic episodes.

But I'm now taking care of that, but reducing the e-cig's nicotine content down to the lowest level they routinely sell. 6 mg, or ml, or whatever. It's six of whatever.

But I guess the US government, which for years has given people diabetes and obesity with completely-wrong dietary advice, is now determined to murder them with cancer and heart disease as well.

Government is what we name the things we do together -- like waging perpetual war on each other.
