Stephen Colbert On The Meatocalypse


Hat tip to Audrey Silk from NYC Clash via Facebook-


I almost missed this and I am glad that I didn't.


I think that we all deserve a good laugh for a change.


Enjoy!




State Sponsored Abuse


Look at what has become of the anti-smoker movement in Australia:


Angry pedestrian screams at woman for smoking in Martin Place


The man in the video is obviously stark raving mad and not a very nice person. With that said, what I would like to know is where did he ever get the idea that it should be incumbent upon (ie., "OK") him to berate and terrorize another citizen who is simply going about their day and business?


What is truly scary is that there are many more nutjobs with a penchant for totalitarianism lurking around most every corner.


I have myself encountered a couple of them, and they are not friendly either. In fact, some of them can be quite scary, and in more ways than one. It's their idea that people can (and should) be controlled, right down to the minutiae of day to day living, that scares me more than anything else.


There is no room for freedom and democratic thought in such a scenario.

CASAA: National Call to Action: Tell the White House to urge FDA to re-work the deeming regulations so that life-saving vapor products can remain on the market!



From CASAA:

Today, Tuesday, October 27th, longtime vaping opponent the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids (CTFK) has organized a call-in action to urge President Obama to put pressure on the FDA to finalize their Tobacco Deeming Regulations. What CTFK and others are failing to mention is that if the deeming regulations are enacted as written, 99.9% of the vapor products currently on the market will be gone within two to four years. Make no mistake, the current proposed regulations will have a devastating impact on consumers and businesses alike; not to mention the obvious damage to public health.

CASAA: Call to Action! Support HR 2058 which would change the grandfather date for vapor products


If you care about freedom and harm reduction, please take take action by supporting HR 2058.


...and don't forget to share! Sharing is caring.


The FDA Deeming Authority Clarification Act of 2015 (HR 2058), introduced by Representative Tom Cole of Oklahoma, would save the U.S. vapor industry from being destroyed by improper regulations by the FDA. This bill would amend the Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act to change the grandfather date for “deemed tobacco products.” This change would allow for all vapor products currently on the market to remain on the market without being subject to the burdensome (read: prohibitive) pre-market FDA approval application process.

While CASAA maintains the position that a separate regulatory scheme should be developed for vapor products*, we are proud to support HR 2058.
