LET HIM SMOKE, PLEASE!

It is entirely possible those great classic films may not have been so great, and so moody if it hadn’t been for cigarettes.

Of All the Gin Joints

Oh goodness gracious, my stars and garters. The One (elect) is smoking. By golly he promised change and by golly he’s going to deliver.  After all, he is representing a younger generation of lying, cheating, and stealing brain-dead, stupidly ignorant but highly educated new voters.  And, they smoke.

The world is coming to an end.

The One (elect) can’t kick the habit.

He’s killing himself.

Smoking is the ultimate evil and must be prevented at all costs.

On the other hand – there’s nothing like a good abortion or two to liven up the afternoon.  Same thing goes for assisted suicide.  No problem.

BUT – let anyone even think of smoking and it’s evil, just pure evil. Nothing is worse than smoking. We’ve heard that drumbeat for decades.  If parents would spend as much time teaching their little crumb crunchers about Christ, the Ten Commandments, and morality as they do not smoking we might have a better world.  Then again, considering how effective these brain-washing techniques have not been, maybe they’re better off not teaching religion or morality.

The only thing more evil than smoking is a Christian.

If The One (elect) wants to smoke let him.  He’s allegedly a bright and articulate commercial for Hope and Change.  Let him smoke.  I don’t care.  I didn’t vote for him.  I don’t care if he’s killing himself.  That’s his business.  In fact, it really isn’t anyone’s business but Michelle’s.

Fact is, if I had his genetics, I’d go nowhere near anything resembling smoke. He’s a walking commercial for cancer.  It killed his mother and his grandmother. Then there is the African component. He’s killing himself, but what do I care?  I didn’t vote for him.

His “African” genetics will predispose him to strokes, high blood pressure, and heart attacks.

That’s the thing that bothers me.  Okay, there are two things.  One I find highly amusing.  Conservatives who don’t believe “allegedly” in the “nanny-state” don’t mind sticking their nose in the whole abortion thing.  (Don’t get me wrong, I’m the most pro-life person there is).  For the most part, they don’t care about smoking.  Liberals, on the other hand, are the most anti-smoking people in the world.  They are going to save civilization from the tobacco plant.  But – abortion, fine, no problem.

Go figure.

The other thing is the genetic predisposition thing. If there is a serious familial problem toward a disease, then modify your behavior.  In my mother’s family, it’s a-fib. She and her sister both have pace-makers.  My sister and I have a tendency for tachycardia, but it’s more stress based.  We’re tracking a stem cell cancer cluster, but that’s not behavior related.  The men in my father’s family stroke out in their late 70′s so we watch him like a hawk. Fortunately I take after the Perkins women, who have a tendency to be done in by old age – extreme old age.

But – when you have a mother who died of cancer along with a grandmother who just died of it – and have that genetic predisposition to certain diseases – why on earth would you smoke?

I think the only thing keeping me from becoming quite the cigar smoker is the thought of the cancer risk.  If there were not that risk, I’d be doing one several times a day.

What the heck, you gotta go somehow, right?  And, Joe Biden does need something to do.  The poor thing is just sitting there, twiddling his thumbs, doing nothing.
