Robert Wood Johnson Foundation......the ends justifies the means

I had a conversation today with someone from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (no lie) who confided to me that even they did not believe secondhand smoke was harmful........however, if claiming that it was harmful led to smoking bans, the Foundation was satisfied that those bans would eventually lead to people quit smoking and start buying their parent company's, Johnson & Johnson, products like Nicoderm, Nicotrol, Nicorette, Commit, etc.....rent seeking legislation pure and simple.

Therefore the hospitality industry and you as a vendor, Marcus Aurelius, are the expendable pawns in our agenda. (paraphrased)

So in their mind the ends
justifies the means............. I wonder if my creditors are ok with that explanation?

Update: As my home was foreclosed upon 5/5/06, redemption ended 11/5/06 due to being out of work.....the answer would be no; my creditors were not ok with that explanation. I feel confident however, that RWJF will not lose any sleep, in eliminating jobs and costing people their homes and life savings.....we are afterall the expendable pawns in the pharmaceutical nicotine (Nicoderm) marketing program (smoking bans).
