Don't Cry for the Smokers

Having a few friends who engage in smoking (tobacco), it's interesting to listen to the RadioGuys carry on about 'how smokers do not rise up and'.....whatever....their elected "representatives" about the $1.00/pack tax-increase in Wisconsin.

Of course, smokers understand the principle--that the State's spending habits are deleterious, regardless of how they are financed. And of course, smokers also understand that the habit has bad results. (Smokers also understand that they will die--just like non-smokers.) In fact, at the rate the State of Wisconsin is spending, most smokers will live long enough to see the State file for bankruptcy...

Why no screaming-meemie rages, rants, and demonstrations?

Ever hear of the Internet?
