Supreme Court denies Obama admin attempt to extort an additional $280 billion from tobacco industry

The appeal was signed by Elena Kagan, the solicitor general, a couple of months before President Barack Obama nominated her to the Supreme Court

Oops.....tough timing there Hussein Obama. If you're still looking to sue someone under the RICO Act though, how about the tobacco control movement?......they're heavily financed by pharmaceutical nicotine interests (Nicoderm, Nicorette, etc.) RWJF in excess of $450 million......that's a racketeering scam just waiting for a lawsuit.

Case here:

Unfortunately, since RWJF has a revolving back door into the White House with their good liberal buddy Hussein Obama...a RICO investigation into RWJF and the damage to our economy due to their rent seeking legislation is highly unlikely until the next administration.

Check out the White House visitor's list under "L" for "LAVIZZOMOUREY RISA", president of RWJF.

The World’s most Short-lived Smoking Ban

Bulgaria has been one of the most popular tourist destinations for many years due to moderate prices and lack or restrictions. However, things were about to change for smoking tourists as Bulgarian government adopted a strict ban on smoking in public places. However, it is just a beginning of the story which caught the headlines across the European Union.

Still, just three days after the implementation of the comprehensive nationwide ban on smoking in public places approved by the previous parliament, on June 4 it was officially canceled.

It's a dark time in American history when East Europeans understand and yearn for freedom more readily than we do. Then again....the more likely scenario is that America's been punk'd by Nicoderm, Nicorette corporate interests.

Las Vegas, Nevada......coming to their free market senses?

Proposal would allow food service in restaurant bars that allow smoking (link)


And if NV lawmakers need irrefutable scientific proof that secondhand is not a workplace health hazard per OSHA standards they can find that information here:

Air quality test results of secondhand smoke by Johns Hopkins University, the American Cancer Society, a Minnesota Environmental Health Department, and various researchers whose testing and report was peer reviewed and published in the esteemed British Medical Journal......proving that secondhand smoke is 2.6 - 25,000 times SAFER than occupational (OSHA) workplace regulations:

All nullify the argument that secondhand smoke is a workplace "health hazard".

Conversely, the effects of unnecessary, pharmaceutical nicotine funded, smoking ban laws have been profoundly detrimental:

America......you've been punk'd.....secondhand smoke is not a deadly hazard

http://yourdoctorsorders.com/2009/01/the-myth-of-second-hand-smoke/

At the behest of Congressman Henry Waxman (D-Ca), the Congressional Research Service (CRS) spent two years examining reports and came up with the following conclusions regarding second hand smoke and lung cancer (Redhead and Rowberg, 1995):

(a) The statistical evidence does not appear to support a conclusion that there are substantial health effects of passive smoking.
(b) It is possible that very few or even no deaths can be attributed to second hand smoke.
(c) If there are any lung cancer deaths from second hand smoke, they are likely to be concentrated among those subjected to the highest exposure levels (e.g., spouses).
(d) The absolute risk, even to those with the greatest exposure levels, is uncertain.

The scandalous smoking ban legislation and lies about secondhand smoke were financed by the pharmaceutical nicotine industry which depends upon perpetuating those lies in order to continue making a profit. They accomplish this by funding smoking ban lobbyists' activity to eliminate cigarette use and force taxpayers to subsidize sales of their Nicoderm, Nicotrol, Nicorette, Commit, etc. thru Quitline programs.

The crime in this rent seeking legislation scam is that smoking bans have forced thousands of hospitality businesses to close, eliminating hundreds of thousands of jobs prior to the '08, '09 economic crisis.
