They laughably presuppose that our interest denotes fear. Why would they do that? Is it that their own carefully crafted, dismissive attitude toward attacks and potential attacks of this sort is actually designed to prove some kind of superiority they may feel toward the rest of us as far as having an excess of courage and wisdom ? How pathetic – I mean, truly pathetic this is. It shows an emotional immaturity and childlike desire to be recognized that in any other context would call for serious mental health intervention.But, have no fear, folks. The British leftist social engineers have taken the bull by the horns and snuffed out the truly critical danger in life. Sunday "smoking in bars, workplaces and public buildings" has been banned nationwide. Included are churches, company cars, and mini-cabs and if anyone can think of someplace that's been left out, please notify the appropriate social engineering office.
Action on Smoking and Health director, Deborah Arnott, said, "Smoking is the single most preventable cause of death... Workers have a right to a safe environment and the harm done by tobacco smoke is now known to be significantly dangerous." (Further reading at Indigo Continuum.)
So, there we have it - tobacco smoke is "significantly dangerous" while blowing people to smithereens, or just attempting to blow people to smithereens, with
The legislative intent is to extend nanny-state protection to the stupid peasants who, doctors estimate, die at a rate of 600 per year from the debatable effects of second hand smoke because they don't care or don't know enough to care. Since first hand smoke doesn't kill nearly enough people every year, second hand smoke was added. Tertiary smoke is next, I guess.
Anyway, that's 600 people killed per year by tobacco smoke, as opposed to the near 3000 dead in one day by VBIEDs on 9/11, the almost 300 Marines killed in Beirut, or the hundreds killed by VBIEDs and ordinary IEDs several times a day in Iraq and Afghanistan, not to mention all the other IED deaths around the world every month. And, what the heck, let's throw in the misuse of IUDs and we have a number of dead far larger than first, second, and third hand smoke combined.
The leftist epiphany, the come-to-Jesus-moment for the blind-to-terror-social-engineers will be when a cigarette smoking car bomber driving a mini-cab attacks a pub on a Sunday. God forgive me, but I hope that Sunday is soon.
