A Cranky Opinion for
CRANKY OPINION SATURDAY
The following is the opinion of a
cranky old man with minimal knowledge of the subject opined.Opposing opinions are welcome.They are wrong, but welcome.As always, please, no name calling, and that
goes for you, you big stupid-head!
I have read
several news stories of various groups wanting to ban e-cigarette use indoors,
to restrict sales, and to heavily tax their use.They are claiming that e-cigarettes are a
gateway drug to smoking which is a gateway drug to pot which is a gateway drug
to crack which is really bad stuff.They
claim e-cigarettes are targeting young people.They claim that e-cigarette vapor contains toxic chemicals and traces of
nicotine.All of this sounds really bad.
on the gateway drug status.Cigarettes
are addicting and horrible for your health.Cigarettes bad! But e-cigarettes a gateway drug?They are a replacement to cigarettes, and
probably harmful, but not as harmful as cigarettes.I think the ultimate gateway drug is library
paste.Everyone I ever knew who ate
library paste in kindergarten ended up smoking cigarettes and ultimately ended
up as crack addicts.Ban library
paste.Library paste bad!
e-cigarette people are targeting young people, stop it.The product does have nicotine and nicotine
e-cigarette vapor contain toxic chemicals and traces of nicotine?Maybe, though the chemicals are not
named.I would like to see people with
colds or the flu being banned from exhaling indoors.I would rather live in e-cigarette vapor than
take a single whiff of cold or flu phlegm.
are not good for you.Neither are
nicotine gums or nicotine patches.They
do help people quit smoking.They helped
me quit smoking.The patch sucked.The gum sucked.The e-cigarette allowed me to quit cold
turkey and if I was about to hit the wall I could take a little drag to help me
get by.Without it I might have bummed
a butt and then broken down and bought a pack and once you do that you are
done; cold turkey fail.The e-cigarettes
are a crutch when you try and quit.
I am sure
there are people who use the e-cigarette that have never smoked a
cigarette.I have never known one, but
they must exist.Everyone I have ever
known to try the e-cigarette did so to replace the real thing.
I just have
this sneaky feeling that the people who are disgusted with cigarettes see
the e-cigarette as a “loop-hole” to traditional smoking and they don’t like
it.They want smokers to quit and
suffer.They feel smokers deserve to
suffer.They must not be allowed an
bad?Probably, but they are less bad,
and they do not affect other people.Can
you just throw smokers a bone?I know we
all love to hate smokers, but there are other people and products to hate.
and sugar substitutes.Sugar is making
people fat, giving people diabetes and costing the healthcare system a
fortune.Soda companies target young
people with this poison.Sugar is
addictive!Oh yes it is!It probably kills more people than
legalized gambling.Gambling ruins
thousands of lives every day.It ruins the
life of the addicted gambler and the lives of everyone who has a connection to
the addict.Legalized gambling bad!
surgery.Just watch any of the Bravo
“Housewives” TV shows and you will know…Plastic surgery bad!
booze.Booze is the gateway to
hate!Hate people that hate.Read the news, hate is the greatest cause of
misery in this world.Hate bad!
are not good for you, but they are better than the alternative and they help
many people kick a nasty habit.Leave them along.Hate the other stuff.
The preceding has been the opinion of
a cranky old man, and not necessarily that of management…Mrs. Cranky.
