RWJF / CTFK (Nicoderm) funded PR consultant admits to putting Democrats in office in order to push their (Nicoderm sales) smoking ban agenda
From this GMMB website link comes the following statement:
"...GMMB has helped guide Democrats to victory in campaigns for governor, the U.S. Senate and the presidency—winning tough races in the biggest states long after the pundits had written them off. We’ve helped pass dozens of ballot initiatives (smoking bans and increased tobacco taxes)........And we’ve helped elect national leaders in Latin America and Africa and trained citizen activists in Eastern Europe....."
And this GMMB website link makes the following statements:
"....urge the public to pressure their state and local legislatures to pass clean indoor-air ordinances.....The Campaign has been successful in passing smoke-free ordinances in several states and communities including Montana; Delaware; Connecticut; Maine; Idaho; Massachusetts; Rhode Island; Minot, ND; Albuquerque, NM; and Dallas, TX...."
The problem of course is that GMMB, CTFK, and Johnson & Johnson Company's RWJF rent seeking efforts are closing thousands of businesses and eliminating tens of thousands of jobs, as evidenced here:
"...The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids recognized the need to effectively counter the tobacco industry's claims ....... GMMB was selected to serve as its advertising agency and strategic partner in a stepped-up, proactive effort to turn up the heat on Big Tobacco...."
"......In addition to our work at the federal level, GMMB also works closely with the Campaign to develop advertising and media placements for anti-tobacco initiatives (smoking bans) at the state and local levels......"
Johnson & Johnson's RWJF is playing politics for profits. Engaged in propping up special interest funded politicians strictly for their own profit motives......and their PR firm GMMB openly admits that it's Democrats who are more likely to play the game of dirty, sleazy, rent seeking politics.
Currently it seems GMMB is backing the white America hating Barack Hussein Obama for President, see for yourself here:
Here's a long list of previous behavior control legislation by Obama.
Minnesota approaches milestone...nearly 200 bars and restaurants closed since joining the ill-advised Nicoderm funded smoking ban trend

Words have meaning "...the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed...."
I bring this up as a posting because the Washington DC gun ban will be the subject of a Supreme Court decision this week.But the U.S. Constitution's 2nd Amendment verbatim reads:
"...the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed...."I don't care who you are, those words can only be interpreted to mean one thing: "...the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed...." When the United States is defeated and dismantled then those words will be meaningless, until that time the Constitution of the United States is the law of the land. Conversely, the first step in defeating and dismantling the United States will be to render provisions of our Constitution illegal and / or meaningless.
If the definition of militia becomes the liberal argument against "...the People's right...." then it becomes important to understand what the definition of militia is. According to Wikipedia:
The term militia is commonly used today to refer to a military force composed of ordinary citizens to provide defense, emergency law enforcement, or paramilitary service, in times of emergency; without being paid a regular salary or committed to a fixed term of service. Legal and historical meanings of militia include:
-Defense activity or service, to protect a community, its territory, property, and laws.
-The entire able-bodied male (and perhaps female) population of a community, town, county, or state, available to be called to arms.
-A subset of these who actually respond to a call-up, regardless of legal obligation.
-A private, non-government force, not necessarily directly supported or sanctioned by its government.
By the way, it is important to note that 8,400 murders have occurred in DC since gun ownership has been banned in the nations capital. Apparently criminals and murderers don't obey gun laws......imagine that!
Elsewhere, studies have shown that serious violence and murders decrease in localities where legal citizens are allowed to possess defensive weapons.
