SURGEON GENERALS WARNING:

Recs

July 29, 2010 – Comments (6) | RELATED TICKERS: PM , RAI , MO

Health Nazis be damned, these omnipotent moral busybodies are trumped by the golden rule. He who has the gold makes the rules and the Governments worldwide have a bigger piece of the profits from tobacco sales than the tobacco companies do. Don't be fooled by those jerks to stupid to know that if the Government was really losing 10% of the money those charlatans claim they do to smoking side effects than it would be easier to score heroin than to buy a pack of smokes. Governments may be inept, inefficient, wasteful and run by the biggest morons the country has in it like the US is but these crooked slobs are cash pigs who oink, oink oink for more and more money to buy thier re-elections and they are not letting 100s of billions of dollars go to waste because of the costs of smoking. They are reaping the lion’s share of the profits with zero liability just like they do with "Big Oil" who they enjoy well over twice the profits of. Next time you get Gored at the pump it's not the .08 cents a gallon profit Exxon Mobil is making that is costing you. Try the $1.50-2.00 a gallon in gas taxes your paying if you want to find the greedy pigs oinking up your cash. Same goes for the Tobacco companies who thanks to government swine will be enjoying what economists call a Cartel for some time. (See the master settlement made between Big Tobacco & Government and then tell me why the Government would screw itself out of tens of billions by outlawing smokes.) Surgeon Generals Warning: The Surgeon General is a busy work bureaucratic post that should have gone the way of the horse and buggy 50 years ago, as such these boobs have nothing better to do than sit around and fear the Sun and it's deadly cancerous rays. Everyone dies and if you are reading this you too are dying as you read this post.

Yeah, too much sun exposure can cause cancer. But smoking can cause lung, mouth, throat cancer, emphysema, tooth decay and gum disease, among other health problems. Commercial cigarettes are loaded with unlisted secret formulas of chemicals, typically among them urea, ammonia and formaldehyde. I have zero sympathy for the companies involved, as they blatantly lied for decades and actively suppressed accurate science in order to boost their profit margins, at the expense of their customers. Sorry, but no capitalist succeeds on their merits when their product is inherently fatal, and the only reason cigarettes have been this successful so far is because they lied to their customers.

I'm all for letting people do as they will, but the reason things are the way they are now is directly due to the outrageous deception practiced by the entire tobacco industry for generations. Regulations like this don't come out of thin air, and in fact we don't know enough about the product. I'm fine if people want to sell tobacco, but I think we have a right to know the complete list of ingredients in all commercial cigarettes and tobacco products - evidently the companies who sell tobacco products are not going to do it on their own. They've had a long time and have not done it yet.

So, how to we resolve this problem? We regulate the industry to require it. It's partly why we don't die of food poisoning nearly at the rates we used to. Yeah, we're all free as the wind, but I want to know what's in that stuff you're selling me.

Oh, yeah, also because the product is highly addictive. I'm a pretty casual ex-smoker, in that I don't really care what other people do, but if you're going to talk about this industry and regulation, let's not forget what's involved.

Oh, as far as investing, MO and PM are both pretty good dividend payers. I'm sure they'll find more than enough new customers in China and other new markets. I don't like it, but they're both decent defensive stocks, and as Cramer says you can always give the money to anti-smoking groups, etc.

Why this is pure crap filled with nanny state red herrings, gross misunderstanding of free markets, free minds and the merits of capitalism along with the proper role of governments and the dangerous nature of the rule by omnipotent moral busybodies that this is advocating. 

#1) Sorry but no company exists based on a business model that seeks to kill off as many of it's customers as possible any more than one would seek to maximize expenses while slashing revenue.  The notion that cigarettes are inherantly fatal is asinine, specious and the usual resort of the poorly informed sophist to make as odious a point as possible appear cogent. 

** As early or earlyer then the 1920's cigarettes were widely known and called coffin nails by the average person which implies that the notion that smoking tobacco and inhailing smoke into ones lungs was not a healthy choice to say the least and anyone who claims to have been "duped" into thier addictive smoking habit thus not responsible for the health consequences that may or may not be related to thier habit is not only the type of pathetic person whose loss of the American character contributes to the dimunition of the US as we know it into a nation of victims many of whom are to dumb to live if they are making such absurd and childish claims to abdicate thier own responsibility in the matter as they likely do in all other matters based on this character flaw's poor example of the lack of shame, ethics or integrity inherent in these fully grown infant's. 

#2) Well if addictive qualities are grounds for the "Daddy know's Besr" bureaucracies you invision as our savior from ourselves and our lack of ability to make the best choices for our own lives than Coffee, Soda, Sugar, and Alcohal are highly addictive and likely can each be made to appear the bubonic plague of our time by the unscrupulous hacks and political partizans putting out these so called "accurate" studies that were neither oblective of based on any serious standard of scientic or medical ethics based on using predetermined outcomes, unquanifiable speculations, questionable assumptions treated as facts and largely biased against the cigaretee companies who have not once been shown to have forced one single person in all the word and billions of potentiallities that easily lead to calls to ban surgar in pop, coffee products, sugary sweets and beverages as well as the ability to sue the "regulators" you worship so for 500 billion dollars in damages due to the years of lies and misleading claims that Margarin was a superior and more healthy choice than the poisonous evils of butter and the fact that margarine came to be known as trans fats that amount to flling ones arteries with millions of tiny razors being far more deliterious to the lives and health of millions of sheep who were lead to the slaughter by bureaucrat regulators without the proper knowlegde or research claiming that a vile poison was the best choice over that which lacked any poison at all.  In a capitalist invironment this behavior by a company would almost surley doom it to failure while the pernicious and scurrilous actions of murderous regulators who you wish to rule over you like gods and tell thou what thou art and art not to be doing at all times. 

 #3) If half of the propaganda you peddle were true cigarettes would not be legal at all due to the "proven facts findings of the politbureau board of unknown hacks who will make the arranments themselves and carfully evacuate the people from hazardous threats like in Russia did when the Chernoble nuclear disater occured that has led to next to no disclosure of or admittance to the press or jounalists to this very day as to what the magnitude and scope of the disaster truly to have happened and no change in this policy appears to be up for vote for another decade  to from now for a 2499 release date.  Alchohal is 1000 times more pernicious and frought with perils, inherant fatalities and untold spousal and child abuse that the liquor companies have not made clearly defined parts of the poisonous death water they sel and the mayhem, murder and tradgedy that is certainly magniudes greater and more harmful to society than is smoking ciggarettes so lets first ban the use of this product in public, restraunts, bars and anywhere inside or outside of ones own home once they have paid the annual alchohal consumption in home $3,000 fee and received clearance to buy alchohal from approved distributers with a sur-tax of 500% on them to pay for the damages, tradgedies and outrages that this evil product is responsible for and has only remained in business do to lies it tells by hiding the brutal beatings, battered wives and chatter bodies spread out around the car wrecks caused by this stuff and the tally of the total childeren that they have helped to kill to date and the number of childeren your purchase will murder to inform the customer of the facts. 

 

#4)  No you jerk you are not intiltled to a list of my proprietary ingrediants simply because you demand that this is so, why not demand the recipe from KFC of the Kernal's original 11 herbs and spices that are part of the conveyor belt to death that all fast food is and should have to tell customers at each order that this product you ordered is deadly, poisonous, harmful to your health and will have a great chance of bringing about your demise sooner rather than later and require the customer consent to thier own death if they are to be allowed to buy this venomous evil dripping with the blood of the tens of millions of those who are in the grave yard tonight instead of living on for ever and ever if only the regulations were in place and the authorities were given extraordinary power to tax, fine imprison and deport anyone not following all regulatory standards of safety as order added to the registry of safety mandates of America that would lay out an easy clear 257,892 regulatory violations that should they be broke wouls subject the scofflaw to a minimum $10,000 fine 180 days to 202 months in prison, deportation, confiscation of property or execution dpending on the severity of the violations commited based on the codes set forth to make clear the penalties for each infraction starting with the least amount type infractions numbered US#9874684823 and increasing in severity to US#987468432, US#9874688423, US#98774684823-2 and US#9874684823-1b capital punishment clearly labeled and easily read by the law abiding helmet clad pedestrians, bikers, and motorists all required to wera helmets at all times in transit from one place to another and when using any staircase found in buildings or thier homes that mandate full helmet and Kevlar body armour be donned before attempting these dangerous tasks of death defiance and a decade in jail if the video monitoring catches these infractions and reports them immediatly to the local authorities and issues a warrant for the arrest of them until they have had been fully processed and charges filed while the days of backlogue are whittled away and after a week an appearance before a judge will decide in the amount of property to be signed into escrow for seizure if convcted and t0 pay any and all court, jail, paperwork, paroll, probation and the 12,000,000 srong workforce security safety agaents patrolling the streets, monitoring phone frequencies, wathching from undercover of dark the happenings of  the fever swamp of mayhem and misfortune the prvate home that allows limits to the rooms that the government will be allowed to monitor which are all but the one selected bathroom and 1/2 portion of the master bedroom off limits to monitoring the safe and healthy choices you must make or be made to pay dearly the price for such impudence.
