SURGEON GENERALS WARNING:
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.
