Simon Chapman: The E̶m̶p̶e̶r̶o̶r̶ ̶ Emeritus Wears No Clothes Down Under.

bapt

 

There comes a time where things need to be said. People in charge need to be pointed out. There have been things that no one, specifically Simon Chapman, wanted to talk about, like suggestions of law, regulations, and opinion to manipulate nicotine in this instance, but “don’t talk about it”.

Public health, is top secret stuff, evidently.

ENDS-Discussion-paper


I would be irresponsible if I didn’t link Clive Bates covering the paper above here.


Less smoking in Australia comes with fines

The “discussion paper” (Note the other names in that) surely in part, brought this idiotic fine “penalty system” where posession of nicotine includes fines (and jail time) and cigarettes are legal:

Aussies 3 with smokes


Act Like An Expert

I’ve proudly called Simon Chapman a “chimpmanzee” among other obvious things here.

As an “expert” in tobacco control, it’s been pointed out by much smarter people than I am (in many instances) that Simon is wrong. You’d think, with his Ph.D. in social medicine that he would know better.

It isn’t the first time Mr. Chapman has been called out here, here & here.

Christopher Snowden could go on here.

An assertion does not make you correct

This one is one of my favorite instances of assertion by Simon Chapman, and it still puzzles me as to why he would ever make such a rookie professional mistake.

Remember, this statement is from a tobacco control EXPERT influencing public HEALTH and tobacco control. I’d expect such a person to know everything there is to know about nicotine.

If you happen to be an “expert”, act like one. Make it a goal to know more than common people like me, or Judith below.

Even in his retirement, he wants to assert control.


Name calling and… well, who’s above that…

I’ve thought of calling Simon Chapman a “pretentious prick”. A “man-child”. I’ve thought “what an arrogant pompous ass”, yet I’ve only given time and effort where I thought it may be most appropriate. Like now.

It isn’t like Chapman would ever call anyone attempting to engage him properly,  (yes I did) trolls.

Let us clear the decks, call out the lies of those who have more power and funding than brains who are influencing idiotic policy with less than desireable required credentials and force them to answer the questions publicly.

I don’t want to waste any more of our time.

You can see Senator Leyonhjelm who has balls, discussing Simon Chapman below.


 

“…Department of Health was so taken aback by Simon Chapman’s false statements that they felt the need to go on the record and clear things up”

“Ill-informed, willfully ignorant and downright malicious”

“Snake oil salesman come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes they take the guise of an emeritus professor of sociology” ~ Senator Leyonhjelm

 

 


 

Don’t spread this around, Simon is talking about litigation.

Spell my name right, Simon.


As a footnote, the last time I wrote about my pal Simon, he graciously reviewed my inane drivel on Twitter. I aspire to do the same again. Seriously.

Vaping In The News – April 2nd – April 8th, 2017

HR1136 ~ Australia ~ Canada ~ Across The Pond ~ Advertising ~ Nicotine Challenge ~ Bill Godshall Update ~ Incoherent Screams



HR1136, The Cole-Bishop

Consumers, this from CASAA:

The FDA Deeming Clarification Act of 2017 (HR 1136) was introduced on Thursday, February 16th. Republican Tom Cole of Oklahoma (4th district) and Democrat Sanford Bishop of Georgia (2nd district) have built on previous legislative attempts from 2015 and 2016. HR 1136 is an updated version of HR 2058 and the Cole/Bishop amendment.

HR 1136 – Modernizing the predicate date for vapor products is a vital first step


People, you must get louder.

The regulations of e-cigarettes (worldwide) have only one thing to stand on.

I’ve covered the tragedy officials claim, however, any regulations have boiled down to one reason. Money.

They disguise their greed to the public with nicotine “addiction” & “The Children™.

(It is one in the same).

  • Parents, please pay attention to your ankle-biters and activities at local quick marts
  • Obviously, despite their own opinion, tobacco control programs are useless.
  • Evidently, the laws already in place by lawmakers can’t be properly enforced.
  • I’m questioning the claim of nicotine “addiction” here
  • The government, public health, and politicians have more at stake than your measly life. They don’t care.

HR 1136 gains early co-sponsors. Take a moment to say THANK YOU!

If you don’t, you’re effectively agreeing with whatever they throw at us, and the future of those consumers who will have less to choose from.

Get louder.


Australia:

Good news for tobacco control, cigarettes are still safe and available in Australia. Government approved. There is insufficient evidence for the safety of e-cigarettes. Sorry, smokers.

Please, keep smoking.

 


CANADA

The Tobacco Harm Reduction Association of Canada (T.H.R.A) had its say representing consumers in Canada this week at the Senate Committee on Social Affairs with bill S-5.

Lively (and predictable) questions are well fielded by THRA’s Policy Advisor David Jones and Jaye Blancher. David starts around 16:17:

Live Presentations


LOUDER Across The Pond

It’s no secret, I do adore THE Fergus Mason, and you should as well. He’s given his view on the “undercover” investigation by the Royal Society for Public Health.

I’ll let The Fergus Mason take it from here before he flys over here and beats me up –

Vapers in Power responds to the RSPH


By the way

Screw irony. Hello incompetence!

I can’t fix stupid. I certainly won’t miss an opportunity to point it out.

The same RSPH “health charity” (above) says tobacco advertising should be “banned in all forms” . . . . . .

By advertising tobacco in a tweet.

Take your time.

I’ll wait.

Are we good? You ok?


E-cigarette Fundraiser continues

To *donate any amount, please go here to the GoFundMe page:

Nicotine Addiction: An Open 30-Day Public Health Challenge

WE are raising funds for Dr. Farsalinos & his team.

So far the nicotine challenge has been ignored by public health, tobacco control, and government.

Sharing is caring. They really need to focus and try harder. It’s for their own good. (They’ve been tweeted, linked, asked, told, questioned, etc.)

We have raised $605.00 and one challenge has been submitted.

Make some noise while I continue to make a mockery of the claim and an ass of myself.

Donate here.


No one should EVER miss

The Bill Godshall Update via ecigarette-politics:

A hefty list as always:

Bill Godshall Update 2017-03-29


This. Just. Pisses. Me. Off.


Incoherent Screams:

Some idiots decided to “mine” tweets to observe “influencers” to determine and analyze “information shared on Twitter for insights into initial public reactions” to the regulations.

Here’s my shameless self-promotion:
