Vaping and Coronavirus: What We Know and What We Don’t

Jim takes a look at what we know, and discusses what I have determined and diagnosed as #correlationvirus. Yes, I said it because no one else will. Go me!

Vaping and Coronavirus: What We Know and What We Don’t


Despite what is going on in Italy:

Criticism, finger pointing… past… I crack me up.

Bonus finger pointing and criticism from my pal, Jerry.

He can barely resist himself. I bet he’s got an “I love me” wall.

Astroturfing is hard.

#SuburbanKarenVirus is spreading, but with the bad, there is a possibility of a $250.00 reward for being, or becoming a Suburban Karen as long as you meet the requirements, you can meet the definition of astroturfing for something Karen’s children are not legally allowed to do.

Hashtags like #TakeDownTobacco and #ImNotALabRat are hashtags they’ll be using next week…

Interested? They sure hope so!

AstroTurfing is hard.

Keep Smoking We Need The Money

There are about a gazillion ways to gaslight the public. Here’s one they’ve been working on for years, to regulate, restrict, tax, and ban less smoking.

It’s an opinion piece, among 894,997 participants and against every smoker in the nation.

Keep Smoking We Need The Money


You can watch Brent Stafford listening to Cindy Schmidt now below, or you can watch it later here.

They cover the “flavor ban; CDC malevolence; barrage of public health hysteria; and glaring bias from a snarling mainstream media” and much more… eloquently.

It is all in the presentation, in the wording, right?

Speaking of black markets:

Under Bakers new law that includes a “75% excise tax on the wholesale price of e-cigarettes and vaping products”, If you’re caught with “untaxed e-cigarettes or vaping products” in Mass, you can be “fined $5,000 for a first offense and up to $25,000 for multiple violations”, and they can take untaxed product, vehicles, boats and planes… because black markets would never be a concern… (Source)

Speaking of regulations with regulators, the one thing we can agree on is that we can’t agree on everything, but this is mostly good, and their report is linked at the bottom within.

Vaping In The News – September 23rd, 2017

😱

SCREAM TEST / Scream Test Update ~ DANA Statement: Australia ~ THR4Life ~ FDA Warnings ~ Air Quality ~ Corruption ~ Show Me The Money ~ Gonzo Gives ~ Snork ~ Tobacco Taxes ~ Tobacco Experts ~ Regulator Watch ~ Foundation For A Smoke-Free World


 

Experts in tobacco CONtrol are nervous and well aware of their demise as they squealed like stuck pigs after the announcement of Foundation for a Smoke-Free World and Philip Morris’s 1 Billion dollar commitment to the same…

Australia finds nurses on board with vaping… An introduction to the Board Members of THR4life… The FDA warnings are useless…. Gonzo Gives…. Regulator Watch… Foundation For A Smoke-Free World…Taxes… and more.

This is Vaping In The News for the week ending September 23rd, 2017


😱 Scream Test

This reads like a desperate eulogy written by well seasoned & nearly extinct tobacco CONtrol freaks.

To shed light upon on themselves and their continued failure as “experts” is sadly amusing. I encourage one of you to send these idiots some flowers. Tell them to try harder. They can do it.

(Thanks to the authors!)

A “Frank Statement” for the 21st Century?

Scream Test Update

I would be remiss, and this would not be complete without Dick Puddlecoat’s explanation:

Scream Test Update

(My take is further down.)


DANA Statement: Australia

Drug and Alcohol Nurses of Australasia Incorporated (DANA) has released a statment. I don’t agree with “every” single part, but finally, some common sense – shockingly from the land of disbelief and fairy tales of Chapman & Freeman, Australia.

DANA Position Statement on E-Cigarettes


THR4Life

I’d like to introduce you to the Board I am proudly a part of.

Tobacco Harm Reduction For Life


FDA Warnings

More useless notices that won’t be read by anyone.

“FDA failed to present any data — much less the substantial evidence required under the [Administrative Procedure Act]…”

FDA to study warnings for cigarette packaging


Air Quality

The Centers for Disease Control did a test. Huh. Jim McDonald delves into what they did, or didn’t find… and won’t talk about.

What did the CDC find when they tested vape shop air?


Corruption

No. Couldn’t be. Say it isn’t so.

Vrdolyak, associate collected $10 million in unauthorized tobacco fees, prosecutors say


Show Me The Money

Certainly there’s no conflict of interest here… CVS has committed $50 million dollars to get their way.

The American Cancer Society is now joined at the hip to help bully fund “tobacco-free” campuses and has “awarded” $20,000.00 to another campus to become nannies to adults.

Monetary grant encourages a tobacco free generation by The American Cancer Society


Gonzo Gives

What, you may ask, is Gonzo gives? Go ahead, ask. Meanwhile, I see frustration from many in the vaping community.

Then, I see this, and it inspires me.

GONZO GIVES FAQ


Snork

They called this one “Juice monsters” here.


Tobacco Taxes

Since National Tobacco Day, this has been coming… if you didn’t believe it, it’s ready to go – and if you’re new here, nicotine is considered tobacco.

Jim McDonald, again, covers this eloquently here:

Senate bill would tax vapes and cigarettes the same

Tobacco Control ‘Experts’ Fight AGAINST A Smoke-Free World

Please indulge me in a bit of shameless self-promotion. I’d like to take a moment to proudly introduce my first submission to the Daily Caller & Daily Vaper. I was humbled, surprised and honored when I was contacted to submit to them.

I was also relieved. Why? The consideration was immediate. With 20 million possible eyes, and no pop ups, I’m in.

Instead of preaching to the choir, I hope their estimated audience of 20 million people might see what this blog has been trying to say for (4+ years) so long.

My submission on the scream test from above:

Tobacco Control ‘Experts’ Fight AGAINST A Smoke-Free World


Foundation For A Smoke-Free World

This is what causes tobacco control to pull their hair out. I’m enjoying the show.

You can see the website here : Foundation For A Smoke-Free World


Regulator Watch

ANY attention to any attempt to STOP the Food and Drug Administration to cease and desist is attention. Some disagree, some are supportive.

One may agree or disagree in the tactics deployed by any industry or consumer group, but to have egos in the way of progress towards what should be little to no regulation of vaping products, (industry manufacturing standards, no sales tax other than normal sales tax), one with half a brain would give deeper consideration to any efforts being put forth rather than dismissing them.

My deepest thanks to Brent Stafford from Regulator Watch for continuing to educate me as a consumer in what seems like an endless regulatory carnival ride.
