“It’s for the children”, Part 25,689,523……. Third-Hand Smoke.

Honestly thought I sent this up yesterday.
Would have been nice if I hit “publish” instead of “save”, yes ?  ;)

—————–

“It’s for the children.”

The AFP writer has already determined that the science is settled over one test by an agenda-driven group.

The most likely human exposure to TSNAs is through either inhalation of dust or the contact of skin with carpet or clothes — making third-hand smoke particularly dangerous to infants and toddlers.

“Smoking outside is better than smoking indoors but nicotine residues will stick to a smoker’s skin and clothing,” said Lara Gundel, a co-author of the study.

“Those residues follow a smoker back inside and get spread everywhere. The biggest risk is to young children,” she said.

================

I’ll be damned if a few leftist, do-gooder, ‘we-know-what’s-best-for-you’, maniacs get to decide what you can do with a fully legal product in the privacy of your own home and vehicle.

Cass Sunstein and his merry band of Marxist assistants to Obama are ‘nudging’ your individual freedoms, liberties and Rights straight out from under you.

This ‘third-hand-smoke’ garbage is a perfect example………. It starts with a ‘study’ of a legal thing that some folks don’t like being legal……. The study gets done by an agenda-driven entity, usually financed by a taxpayer-funded government grant.  Then, since there’s almost never any challenge to any of the results and ‘scientific’ publicity…… because the results are always written as “it’s for the children”, something gets put to Congress about banning or regulating whatever the study was about.

Problem right now is this current administration is bypassing Congress every chance they get…..and I’m betting before November, Congress will be completely irrelevant, because Cass Sunstein and the rest of the Czars will have regulated everything away……. including the funding aspect of The House…… yes I’m serious.  This administration couldn’t care less about The Constitution or any Right of the individual.

And by the way……. I don’t smoke……. unless I’m on fire.   ;)

Fourth-hand smoke…… That’s when someone who doesn’t smoke (like me), takes a carton of Marlboro’s and shoves ‘em down the throat of some leftist-agenda-driven ‘scientist’, then lights ‘em through the bastage’s nose and offers “hope” that the Statist freak of nature likes the “change” they just experienced.
