"Liberty cannot be caged into a charter
or handed on ready-made to the next generation.
Each generation must recreate liberty for its own times.
Whether or not we establish freedom rests with ourselves."
- Florence Ellinwood Allen

Property Rights for all include Smokers Rights! Ten reasons why the smoking ban stinks. By Joe Jackson. What’s needed is not just the repeal of the smoking ban and other petty, oppressive laws, but a return to healthy scepticism, fairness, and common sense. Thousands of products, from household cleaners to cosmetics, contain higher levels of toxic chemicals than tobacco – and are still harmless.
The American people deserve better... the truth!
Property Rights for all include Smokers Rights! False Information from Center for Tobacco Products is Concerning; FDA Actions Should Be Guided by Science, Not Politics. By Michael Siegel. While it is one thing for the advocacy groups like the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids to make the false assertion to the public that flavored cigarettes are a major gateway for youth addiction to cigarettes, it is truly worrisome to see the FDA's Center for Tobacco Products making the same false claim. The only existing brands of cigarettes in those flavors that I am aware of were marketed by R.J. Reynolds for a brief period from 2004 to 2006, but were voluntarily removed from the market in 2006. Thus, mint, chocolate, cinnamon, coconut, and strawberry cigarettes play no role in youth smoking initiation and the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act's prohibition of these flavors will remove zero cigarette brands from the market and have no effect whatsoever on youth cigarette smoking. I think the public deserves better.
Why the Center for Tobacco Products and the anti-smoking groups have to hide the truth and deceive the public, rather than simply telling the truth, is beyond my comprehension. Clearly, politics - and not science - is at work.
FDA Commissioner Falsely Asserts that Flavored Cigarettes are a Gateway for Teen Smoking. We deserve the truth and unfortunately, we're getting political speak, not the truth. That's perhaps to be expected when it comes from politicians, but it's unacceptable when it comes from federal health officials.
