Military Meets Lifestyle Fascism

The Department of Defense supports a smoke-free military, so they are looking at a “phased-in” ban, possibly over a period of twenty years.

Along with a phased-in ban, the report recommends requiring new officers and enlisted personnel to be tobacco-free, eliminating tobacco use on military installations, ships and aircraft, expanding treatment programs and eliminating the sale of tobacco on military property. “Any tobacco use while in uniform should be prohibited,” the study says.

For years the military has subsidized tobacco sales. My father said the only reason he smoked for two years – during WWII – was because cigarettes were included in his rations. But the health Nazis are leaving nothing untouched, including the military, in their quest for total control over individuals and their lifestyles.

    The logical consequence, as occured under alcohol and drug prohibition, is the creation of an enormous black market in smokes, to be followed by a War on Tobacco.

    No problem. The 247 guys still in the military at that point will be just fine, the rest all having either gone to Ft. Leavenworth as prisoners, failed to reenlist, or been chaptered out for inability to follow orders.

    So, soldiers who suffer destroyed lungs etc.. from working near burn pits and who are denied government medical service won’t be allowed to smoke Marlboros. That makes sense…………..http://antiwar.com/radio/2009/07/03/kelley-b-vlahos-2/

    Pretty soon, america will be declared smoke-free, cigarettes will be banned and of course labeled an illegal drug and people will have no choice but to resort to “crime” to support their habit.
