Both Frank and Junican have picked up on Rose’s findings of the new legal ruling in that rebel colony called America. If only George III had been as sane as other monarchs…. oh wait, we have another King Charles coming up and then… well, it doesn’t look good, does it?
Cigarette companies are to be forced to print ‘warnings’ of things that are not real and things that have been proven to be not real. They have been forced to do this by the legal system.
Okay, I accept that smoking is not good for me but like Frank, I am increasingly of the opinion that it is not bad for me either. Certainly nowhere near as bad as it was painted twenty years ago, and the modern hysteria has passed the credibility horizon forever. Smoking causes cervical cancer? You are doing it wrong. Very wrong. I hereby offer to observe and eventually correct your smoking habits. Proceedings may be recorded on videotape for your protection and for YouTube.
Cervical cancer is caused by a virus, that’s why girls get immunisations. Quite why Big Pharmers are not in uproar over this threat to their money-game is not clear. The amount of profit on an Elastoplast with a bit of leaf inside might be a clue.
As for smoking causing rectal cancer, I have no wish to observe but would merely suggest you try it at the other end. If you can really smoke at that end I am impressed but require no further information. I would recommend against it – if you fart you might explode.
The legal system in America would be a joke if it was at all funny. It’s not. Never, ever go there. Their judges just make stuff up and rule on whatever takes their fancy. If they decide your hat is homophobic because it doesn’t have ‘I like arse-sex, bend me over’ written on it, they will find you guilty of some law they just invented and send you to prison and make you wear the appropriate hat while in there.
Real evidence is no longer admissible in court. Only made-up crap that fits the judges’ preference is The Truth. “I swear to tell the lies the judge wants to hear, the whole lies and nothing but the lies, so help me Gawd” is the new oath.
Wouldn’t it be nice to pretend that the UK legal system is less corrupt? It would be a nice thought, wouldn’t it? It’s always a bit comforting to use the old phrase ‘only in America’.
That’s not true any more and hasn’t been for quite some time.
You’ll get a fairer trial in China now.
And the booze is cheaper too.
