THE VAPE ADVOCATE
May 27, 2015

Published on May 27, 2015

Here is my message to the current political situation in regards to vaping and vapers. If we don't stand up now and vote and get off of our butts we won't be able to vape at an affordable rate and it will force a lot of your favorite brick and mortars out business. Pushing us to go back to analogue cigarettes. I don't care who you align yourselves with just align yourselves with someone. If its NAVB awesome if its CASAA or SAFTA awesome. Find your local lobbying group and get in on the fight to keep our rights as vapers. Be respectful in all responses to all of our political leaders. We get more respect with respect and we keep our rights by voting and standing up for our vaping rights!

Truth About Vaping - Episode 1 - "Why They Hate Us"

 

Myself, one of billions who has smoked since their early teens 43 years total, E-cigarettes have been my MIRACULOUS EXIT door from the resulting ravages of my respiratory health from, smoking, which was continuously pouring smoke into my lungs.  My desire on publishing this blog is to express in every possible way, why quitting smoking by using Electronic Cigarettes, that for 10 years have been an afforadable, accessible and available this MIRACULOUS technology did help me 100% to accomplish quitting smoking and remaining SMOKE free, now for the better part of six years.
There is one mysterious problem...however, it seems that in order to understand all the hullabaloo against my being able to continue making this healthFUL choice is like baby Moses on the raft of Euphrates River, endless negative news from sponsored corporate media on a global scale, this riddle has multiple answers that I hope to cover with the help of the arguments for and importance of Electronic Cigarettes. There are so many voices who have organized to disseminate factual information, while unfortunately the public remains hard of hearing filled up with propaganda spinning, from the lying screaming media, that takes it's careless attacks that are creating ill health for smokers, a real harm promoting approach, by aiming towards distracting the public from the real debilitating health issues that half of all smokers, eventually do suffer, i.e., COPD & EMPHYSEMA! Global Pharmaceutical Corps., underwrite powerful campaigns that is how the major news media is sponsored, go figure? Agendas cloaked in much disgusting disguise while they feel so entitled to rape the endless well spring of money via unfair and burdensome taxation, which goes to fuel their orwellian Prohibition tactics, that may sway some minds that only receive their information from Pharmaceutical sponsored CNN, ABC & PBS et al.,  TV!


TOBACCO CONTROL ORGS. SO-CALLED PUBLIC HEALTH ORGS. who are they? ( Michael McFadden sheds light on it here.) (Dr. Carl Phillips here), (Clive Bates here) (Brad Rodu here) (Robert Innes' Brainy Furball here) Anti nicotine tobacco zealots, (Stanton Glantz here) [ANTZ] with their harmonious money ties to big tyrannical government oligarchs cronies! Yet again it's pharmaceutical funding the greediest profiteers, who are now showing themselves to be anything but humanitarian in any true regards to anything related to real PUBLIC HEALTH, instead these elitists W.H.O. FDA, CDC, FTC and the list continues, all the so-called Health Related Charitable Orgs., who are gorging while forging Junk Science mainly a result of their addiction to money.  Their bribing and bribed limitless funding that smokers mainly contribute to even when it is costing them their health and lives!  With constant negative castigation of smokers,  keeping a BIG THUMB over their captured and enslaved taxed contributors, the consumers that smoke. Using time tested and overly forceful tactics.  While sorely and grossly negligent, purposefully ignoring the factual science in favor of Electronic Cigarettes [MY MIRACULOUS EXIT DOOR FROM MY SMOKING RELATED, DOOMED HEALTH], [OH YEAH, I WISH TO ASSERT, I AM A FINE ARTIST... ONE OF SO MANY THAT SMOKED OR SMOKE THAT HAVE DIED OR WILL DIE DUE TO OUR ENJOYMENT OF THIS ACTIVITY, SMOKING] ANTZ who say there just isn't enough of known about E-Cigarettes in their back pockets and purses, instead they hope to capture the profits by provoking fears in the non-smoking and smoking public, regarding the most vulnerable... our (children's lives).  Using a false morality play, to hide their true intensions, ...  Turning consumers into their enslaved cash cows, their beloved financial solvency depends upon smokers, smoking and now even US ex-smokers who are referred to as vapers, those of us that actually have improved our health and have QUIT SMOKING! while they are fighting against the rights of all individuals liberties, the real PUBLIC'S HEALTH, the freedom of choice whether anyone should desire to smoke or become SMOKE-FREE via what has worked for 30 Million smokers across this world, who they refer to as "Anecdotes", to those that wish to block the only consumer driven marketed exit for smokers Electronic Cigarettes!

#BUTTOUT

A message for Public Health and your unholy partners in deception, big tobacco corporations. 


 

It dawned on me just last night.. Hon Lik basically re-invented e-cigs with newer technology that made them less expensive and long lasting and shortly thereafter, we, the ever growing community of Vapers discovered them. Not big tobacco, not big Pharma, and certainly not the CDC, ALA, AHA or ACS. We embraced E-cigs because WE saw the potential in them to get ourselves off tobacco cigarettes, and NOT because of anything any of the aforementioned groups did. Over a short period of time we ran with the technology and spawned it into an incredibly satisfying experience. Those public health groups did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about it or FOR US. They only turned their noses up at us, that is until they realized that their income sources began to dwindle because tobacco sales had began to shrink. Relatively overnight, E-cigarette use had risen on an exponential curve and there are indications that it will only continue to gain momentum.


 

Fast forward to now. The coordinated efforts to demonize E-cigs and lies has begun because some government agencies and some big corporations are about to get put out to pasture by the very people that they suck their living off of. And now that they are finally paying attention, the simple fact is that along with tobacco cigarettes, these so called health groups are quickly becoming obsolete as well. 


 

Here is a news flash CDC and Public Health, We don't need you and we don't need your lies. We know how to read data, we know right from wrong and we know how to spot a lie. Tobacco cigarettes are obsolete and so are you. The horses have escaped and you can't get them back. Regardless of what you do or what lies you tell, E-cigarettes are here to stay and tobacco cigarettes are all but going away. It must really suck to know that you have failed at your task. WE DID IT WITHOUT YOU and rightly so.


 

There ARE men and women of integrity within the research and medical professions that are passionate about helping smokers quit tobacco cigarettes and not passionate about big pharma pay-outs. They do not believe in status quo nor ideology. They have done the simple research, they have collected the data and poured over it. The results are in and guess what? WE'VE found an alternative to smoking cigarettes that works, and YOU DIDN'T! Now it's time for you to BUTT OUT!


 

The real shame in ALL this is the fact that you will continue to pursue your big tobacco pay-outs because you are a slave to the money and smokers be damned. You will continue to demonize E-cigarettes, continue to try and classify them as tobacco, continue to seek taxes and restrictions and continue to lie.  


 

It is mind shaking to think that the ONE MONUMENTAL BREAKTHROUGH for Public Health to embrace and endorse that will HELP millions of cigarette smokers quit killing themselves was HANDED to you on a silver plate FOR FREE and you threw it away for money and ideology. How can you sleep at night?
