Menthols contain no fiberglass

I think every anti knows how Big Tobacco uses menthols to attract people like myself to smoking. I'm not gonna deny I wouldn't be smoking if menthols disappear. But some smokers also think menthols have fiberglass in them. Well this page I found on the Web confirms menthols do NOT have fiberglass in them.

Whetha you want to believe it or not is up to you. But I know I never viewed menthols as cigs with fiberglass. I did get a laugh out of that cited page when some people rumored that Menthols are more dangerous to smoke because Big Tobacco is out to kill Blacks. Whoever came up with that dumb-A rumor on Big Tobacco trying to kill "us" by making menthol brands forgot that we ain't the only ones who smoke menthols.

I don't think Big Tobacco is trying to kill more Blacks and more women. They're just trying to make smoking convient for everyone.

Most of Black smokers (myself included) prefer mint-flavored tobacco to smoke. And some women smokers told me in the past if 120s never existed, they never would've decided to smoke....because those women hate smoking 100s and kings.

One thang I did learn online is the menthol in my cigs is actually in the filters and in the cig tubes. According to this small tobacco company's site, they're the only ones who make a menthol brand by actually blending in the menthol with the tobacco itself. I think 32 Degrees is the name of the brand on that site of the General Tobacco company.

Ohio Smokers Rally in Columbus, OH

On October 9, 2007, there was an Ohio smokers rally in Columbus. I'm impressed with the first video (I gotta watch the other ones). The list of the 7 videos made by Matthew Link are below this message.

But afta seeing the first one, I believe there are more smokers and more smoking ban oposers than what the media/society may think. Afta all, an anti's logic would think only 10 smokers and maybe only 2 business owners would attend a smokers rally. But I saw lots of people in the vid, and I saw a lot more than 2 owners from Ohio speak to the crowd.

I also read about Lynda Farley and her Liberty Van showing up at the Ohio smokers rally. I met her before in person. She's one of the very strong smoking activists I ever shook hands with in my life. I saw her Liberty Van last month as well, and it looks very impressive on the outside. She's the same ban opposer who gave me a business card that said "American LIAR Assosciation" on it.

I'm sure the business owners in IL will be using their freedom of speech outdoors once their own businesses start closing down in January. Congrats to the Ohio smokers/owners for having a very strong rally!

Here's the list of the seven rally videos made by Matthew Link. These URLs should all be clickable links.
