Property Rights for all include Smokers Rights! PA Attempt To Tax Lap Dances at Strip Clubs.
The Nutter administration has lost in its legal battle to tax lap dances performed in the back rooms of strip clubs. Lawyers for the city had gone before Common Pleas judge Ellen Ceisler, arguing that the city's Tax Review Board last year was wrong when it said the city's amusement tax was too vague to be applied to lap dances. But Judge Ceisler, ruling from the bench, today upheld the board and quickly threw out the appeal.

Ohio University Considers MANDATORY Re-Education Classes For Smokers.
They have plans for students who refuse to abide by the ban. Serial smokers who insist of lighting up repeatedly will be sent to the taxpayer-funded school's Office of Community Standards to "talk to somebody," said Ryan Lombardi, Ohio University's vice president for student affairs, according to the News. Students who have no desire to kick the habit may also be affected. School officials are also pondering a policy that will force incorrigible users of demon nicotine to enroll in the anti-smoking programs.

And with all our options so deliberately handpicked, are we really making a choice at all?

Property Rights for all include Smokers Rights! On the dangers of third hand stupid. By Carl V. Phillips. The hazards of anti-tobacco stupid to the stupid themselves are well known. The loss of judgment that allows someone to participate in the tobacco control industry, and thus lose their ethics and humanity, are tragic. The images of their suffering - the compulsion to blatantly lie about the facts, the desperation resulting from trying to rationalize how they are helping the people they are actively inflicting harm upon, the doublethink €” are horrible to look upon. But in some sense, these are victims of their own free choice, and they have made this lifestyle decision for themselves. The Circle of Hell that is reserved for them is chosen and accepted by those who choose to stupid.

The third reading of the ordinance is scheduled for Monday, July 28. If the council approves it after that reading, it becomes law.

IN South Bend:
Smoke-free group won't give up on smoking ban. Even though the South Bend Common Council voted against a smoking ban in some restaurants and bars Monday night, Smoke Free St. Joe members say they will resubmit a request for the smoking ban as soon as they can regroup.

Mark Drakeford AM said: "We now believe the introduction of regulations to prohibit smoking in private vehicles carrying under-18s is needed as the final piece in the jigsaw to eliminate the harm and end persistent inequalities in exposure."

"The victor will never be asked if he told the truth."
- Adolph Hitler
The Nazis' Forgotten Anti-Smoking Campaign

The Nazis' Forgotten Anti-Smoking Campaign:

The Third Reich viewed tobacco as a threat to the health of the "chosen folk." Nazi Germany's well-known obsession with creating a master Aryan race led to many atrocities. But from these same sinister motives came research that may have had health benefits for the German people during World War II-studies on the dangers of smoking that led to the most advanced anti-tobacco campaign of its time. Unfortunately, the campaign was only concerned with protecting the health of Aryan Germans. A paper prepared by German scientists convincingly established for the first time that cigarette smoking is a direct cause of lung cancer. In 1939, German scientist Franz Muller presented the first epidemiological study linking tobacco use and cancer. In 1943, a paper prepared by German scientists Eberhard Schairer and Erich Schoniger at Jena University confirmed this study, and convincingly established for the first time that cigarette smoking is a direct cause of lung cancer. Research by German doctors also brought to light the harmful effects of secondhand smoke for the first time, and coined the term "passive smoking." But Proctor says the findings cannot be separated from the context in which they were realized. According to Proctor, Schairer and Schoniger's paper needs to be seen as "a political document, a product of the Nazi ideological focus on tobacco as a corrupting force whose elimination would serve the cause of 'racial hygiene.'"

Your Doctor Knows You're Killing Yourself. The Data Brokers Told Her.
You may soon get a call from your doctor if you've let your gym membership lapse, made a habit of picking up candy bars at the check-out counter or begin shopping at plus-sized stores. That's because some hospitals are starting to use detailed consumer data to create profiles on current and potential patients to identify those most likely to get sick, so the hospitals can intervene before they do.

so I don't want yours at the restaurant. A new report shows that Canadian parents are leaving the children at home more often when they dine out, but this may not be so good for the hospitality industry.

France: Mayor of Paris announces plans to ban smoking
in public parks, just days after government announces banning wine from workplace. "We are not into banning, we are experimenting," said Ms Hidalgo, who said parks in the unfashionable 14th arrondissement would act as 'guinea pigs in this experiment'. But the move follows a new Socialist directive which allows bosses to ban wine in the work place - leading to accusations that the very heart of Gallic culture is under attack.

Congress Destroys A Hobby, FAA Gets The Blame.
This week, the FAA released its interpretation of what model aircraft operators can and can't do, and the news isn't good: FPV flights with quadcopters and model airplanes are now effectively banned, an entire industry centered around manufacturing and selling FPV equipment and autopilots will be highly regulated.

- Dante Alighieri
Property Rights for all include Smokers Rights! Hospitals Are Using Credit Card Data To Predict People's Health. Some hospitals are identifying high-risk patients by buying loads of consumer data (i.e. credit card purchases, store loyalty programs, etc.) and plugging it into algorithms so they can step in before the customer gets sick. How does it work? Take, for example, an asthma patient. A hospital would decide how likely a person would arrive in the emergency room by tracking how often they have refilled their medication, if they're caught buying cigarettes, and if they live in an area with a high pollen county. "The idea is to use Big Data and predictive models to think about population health and drill down to the individual levels," said Michael Dulin, a chief clinical officer for analytics and outcomes research for the medical network, in the Bloomberg Businessweek report.

Who's afraid of the nanny state?
Fear of an emergent nanny state is a familiar theme in ongoing debates about what governments ought to do to protect the health of the community. In a unique, interdisciplinary conference, co-hosted by Sydney Law School and the Charles Perkins Centre, this issue was explored in detail. The conference, which paired University of Sydney researchers with leading scholars from Scotland, the United States, and New Zealand, also showcased the contribution that the humanities and social sciences can make towards finding real world solutions to ease the burdens of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and related conditions...

Laws That Were Great On Paper...
(And Insane Everywhere Else. The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. And Bourbon. The point being, history is full of well-meant laws and reforms meant to protect us from ourselves that either don't do a damned thing, or in these cases, actually make things worse.

That's why they will not survive.
As with all Puritan movements of the past, present and future, there is one reason they fail, one reason they will not or cannot understand. (WHO) does what all Socialists do and declares all opposition mad and/or illegal.

Hospital Bans Employees From Smoking Anywhere On Earth.
This so-called "job screening" will bar any applicants who smoke cigarettes, cigars, pipes, snuff, hookah, and even e-cigarettes from being eligible for employment. While the hospital already has a smoking ban on the premises and surrounding sidewalks, this policy forbids new employees from consuming tobacco anywhere, at any time.
When Salt IS Good for You
When Salt IS Good for You:
The Thyroid Health Connection. In recent years, medical journals and consumer publications alike have been hashing out the controversy about salt consumption and its effects on an array of medical conditions, primarily high blood pressure and heart disease, but also osteoporosis, kidney stones and kidney disease, and obesity. There is one fundamental fact that has gotten lost in the great salt debate: the substance is one of the primary vehicles for delivering iodine to the body's thyroid gland, which is essential to production of thyroid hormone. Thyroid hormone is used in every cell of our bodies to regulate metabolism and weight by controlling the burning of fat for energy and heat and managing the regulation of other vital body functions. Without iodine, thyroid hormone production simply does not happen, thus throwing the body into a tailspin.
Target for added sugar
Call to halve target for added sugar.
People need to more than halve their intake of added sugar to tackle the obesity crisis, according to scientific advice for the government in England. The sugar industry said "demonising one ingredient" would not "solve the obesity epidemic". The body reviewed 600 scientific studies on the evidence of carbohydrates - including sugar - on health to develop the new recommendations.
E-cigarettes: What part of 'no danger' don't you understand?
By Dave Pickrell. It is classic that e-cigarettes has given public health everything they said they wanted, smoke with no odor or effects to bystanders and safer for smokers because they don't inhale anything burning to get nicotine. Are anti-smokers happy now? No. An e-cigarette legitimizes smoking again, and that scares anti-smokers to death. This means they will lose absolute control of the debate. It also means that things will become much better for smokers.

"[Lighting a cigarette] Well, I'm not here to impinge on anybody else's lifestyle. If I'm in a place where I know I'm going to harm somebody's health or somebody asks me to please not smoke, I just go outside and smoke. But I do resent the way the nonsmoking mentality has been imposed on the smoking minority. Because, first of all, in a democracy, minorities do have rights. And, second, the whole pitch about smoking has gone from being a health issue to a moral issue, and when they reduce something to a moral issue, it has no place in any kind of legislation, as far as I'm concerned."
- Frank Zappa
Property Rights for all include Smokers Rights! Another Ban Failed: Bullitt County, KY. The Kentucky Supreme Court on Thursday overturned a smoking ban approved three years ago by the Bullitt County Board of Health. The board exceeded its authority, the court said, so the ban is invalid. But the decision is not about health risks, the opinion states. It's about which governmental entity has the right to make a law. State law allows boards of health to adopt regulations "necessary to protect the health of the people," but the Supreme Court opinion says the law does not provide the power to "adopt any regulation relating to that broad field."

Obama Tobacco-Free but Still Chews Nicotine Gum,

Indonesia Refuses to Sign Tobacco Control Convention.
The president also refused to sign FCTC as there is still no unanimity among the government agencies on the FCTC, he said on the sideline of his visit to the Barito cigarette factory in the village of Gondosari, sub-district of Gebog, Kudus, together with a group of legislators from the Commission VI of the House of Representatives. "Clove flavored cigarette industry is a heritage that has to be protected," he said.

It's another nail in the coffin for UK manufacturing and a loss of revenue for the exchequer."

Electronic cigarettes: time for an accurate and evidence-based debate.
Evidence is urgently needed to inform the debate regarding the impact of electronic cigarettes on public health as national and international legislation moves forward. Current research and commentaries on electronic cigarettes/electronic nicotine delivery devices (referred to here as e-cigarettes) vary widely in quality, accuracy and objectivity. While these issues are not limited to the research community, we believe that researchers need to demonstrate better scholarship in this area. We illustrate our concerns with three examples below.

The WHO Attempts To Censor Websites.
By Dick Puddlecote. As well as being entirely unelected, it appears that the World Health Organisation also doesn't care much for openness and transparency. They are not happy with minutes which mention that the WHO views e-cigarettes as a threat - and which prompted a much-reported recent letter to the WHO by over 50 health professionals - reaching the internet, so are doing their best to make the document disappear.

Wales e-Petition:
We call upon the Welsh Government not to proceed with their proposed ban on the use of e-cigarettes in enclosed public spaces, substantially enclosed public places, and places of work in Wales. This proposal, if implemented, can only lead to fewer people using e-cigarettes and more people smoking cigarettes.

Property Rights for all include Smokers Rights! This kid is fat. (According to the City of New York) Gwendolyn Williams is a pencil-thin, bubbly 9-year-old who is a perfectly healthy third-grader. But according to city bureaucrats, she's practically obese. "Fat-shaming," experts called the practice on Thursday, criticizing both the fallibility of BMI calculations and the mental-health effects of kids being graded on their size.

Bulletproof Blankets.
Bodyguard Blanket the latest bulletproof product to protect US students during school shootings. The Bodyguard Blanket, which costs $1000, is the latest body armour product targeted at school students in the United States, where parents and schools can already buy bulletproof jackets, backpacks, and whiteboards.

No Sunscreen Allowed at School.
"Kids could drink it." Our country has grown delusional creative when it comes to thinking up new child dangers to be worried about. The latest involves a San Antonio, TX, school where kids were going on a field trip, but forbidden to bring sunscreen, which the school classifies as both a "medication" and "toxic." As usual, the real danger is looking at ordinary, safe, 2014 life through the Kaleidoscope of Death. But many school administrators seem to find this irresistible.

Ontario School Nannies.
School says no to canoeing, kayaking or archery, then cancels Grade 8 grad camping trip. Staff and Grade 8 students at an inner-city Toronto school were looking forward to the three-day graduation trip to an idyllic nature camp in Eastern Ontario - until they were informed they couldn't canoe, kayak or try archery. And swimming, rope activities and campfires? Only if "sufficient proof of safety" was provided ahead of time, along with "a script of safety routines and insurance in case of injuries." With the requested documentation and swim tests near-impossible to complete before kids were to leave June 10, the trip fell to pieces, staff say.

Stop helicopter-parenting other people's kids.
We've reached the point where parenting "mistakes" are being reported to the cops. A blog that argues against helicopter parenting, posted a story of cops being called on parents whose children were simply playing outside, unsupervised. The same site recently reported about a father who made his son walk one mile home while he thought about some misbehavior, which resulted in the father being given a one-year probation. The judge cited the mere existence of child predators as a reason for the verdict. It's an odd way to "help" a child who is unsupervised for five minutes to potentially inflict years of stress, hours of court appearances, and potential legal fees and fines on their parents. What is wrong with these tattlers?

Using the tobacco fear to police our lives.
Sugar, food, sunshine, sitting down - everything fun is now labelled 'the new tobacco'. What these promiscuous comparisons with tobacco show is just how fearful we have become of even the most trivial health or environmental threat, with academics, campaigners and politicians all willing to play on that fear to further their own ends.

I'm not sure what is most astonishing; that Chapman expects nobody to question this methodology, or that he even thought of it in the first place. Either way, to present data in this fashion is nothing short of shocking. Not to mention thoroughly unprofessional and downright dishonest.

Dual use of ecigarettes and cigarettes.
We therefore know that dual-use is a very good thing: it leads to reduction in smoking, smoking cessation, and total cessation. All these are a positive for the individual since (a) all have health benefits, and (b) they are voluntary and self-motivated positive choices, whichever is chosen.

"The problem is that agencies sometimes lose sight
of common sense as they create regulations."
- Fred Thompson

Property Rights for all include Smokers Rights!The Food and Drug Administration will propose its first regulations for electronic cigarettes, including requiring health warnings and banning sales to minors. Regulators do not yet have scientific evidence for a rule on flavorings, but the subject is still being researched, Mitchell Zeller, director of the FDA's Center for Tobacco Products, told reporters. "There are far more questions than answers," he said, adding that the new regulation would provide a "framework" for additional rules in the future. The FDA has been trying to regulate the devices for at least five years. In 2009, the agency sought to impose restrictions on them as medical devices designed to deliver nicotine, a chemical compound that is addictive. After a federal court struck down that effort the next year, the agency switched grounds and declared that it could issue rules for the devices under the authority Congress gave it to regulate tobacco products. Regulating the devices raises more complex issues than rules for traditional cigarettes because the health impact of e-cigarettes is unclear. Supporters say they could be beneficial by allowing users to get nicotine without the exposure to tar and other carcinogens found in cigarette smoke. They have touted the devices as an effective way for some of the country's roughly 42 million smokers to quit.
