Tobacco No Longer a Winning Lifestyle Choice



Libz - Tobacco No Longer a Winning Lifestyle Choice

Latest drug preference polls shows that big bad tobacco has been relegated to fourth place on the 'favourite lifestyle risk list,' and anti-smoking hysterics are patting themselves on the back at the news.

"But what of the other poll winners?" asks smokers' advocate Joy Faulkner. "This means in the stakes of 'how-to-enjoy-yourself-without-getting-up-the-zealots'-nose' we have alcohol first, and marijuana second, while hitting third is the brain fryer "speed".

It must be a great comfort to our illustrious health nazis - who have worked tirelessly to get smokers off the heinous drug tobacco - to see that those seeing the light have improved their chances of a long and healthy life by turning to these much safer (but harder to tax) mind altering substances.

"Congratulations on a job well done," mused Joy Faulkner. founder of Smokers Of the World Unite, and Libertarianz Spokesman on Tobacco and Alcohol. "It was patently obvious that that this would happen as tobacco became ever more expensive and 'socially offensive.' Unfortunately, it is the teenagers in nightclubs taking up these brain killers in droves who are paying. Oh well at least they're not ingesting the most dangerous drug of all, tobacco."

Gordon Campbell: On Responding To The Need In Tonga

The power of the Tonga eruption (and the size of the aid response being mounted) have been sobering indications of the scale of this disaster.
