Nag, Nag, Bitch, Bitch

Seldom watch television but caught a news broadcast about e-cigarettes at an awards show, and politicians getting face time on air by being shocked, appalled, and determined to “do something”. From MSNBC.

 A group of Democratic senators are asking NBC Universal and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to avoid the “glamorization” of smoking e-cigarettes in future broadcasts of the Golden Globes.

In a letter from Senators Dick Durbin, Richard Blumenthal, Sherrod Brown, and Ed Markey on Thursday, the senators wrote, “Unfortunately, this year, many young viewers saw notable displays of e-cigarette use through the awards show… We are troubled that these images glamorize smoking and serve as celebrity endorsements that could encourage young fans to begin smoking.”

Note the key words, “Democratic Senators”. The same asshats that are working to dismantle the 2nd Amendment, and otherwise run our lives. Strictly for our own benefit, of course, as we are too dumb to take care of ourselves. Isn’t it nice they care so much for us?

I smoked a carton a week for better than twenty years. Unfiltered Camels and Pall Malls. Quit cold turkey in 1984. If you choose to smoke, that is no business of mine. I prefer not to be around cigarette smoke indoors, and don’t like to see butts scattered around, but don’t see it as my place to tell others what they should do.

What is worse? These arrogant assholes who assume they hold the moral high ground or the lame stream media that gives them a podium?
