Rokerscongres krijgt steun van filmactrice/producer

De rokersconferentie die eind juni in Las Vegas werd gehouden werd verrast door een openbare brief van filmactrice en producer Sybil Danning.


Sybil, net als Arnold Schwarzenegger van origine Oostenrijkse, geeft in de brief aan dat ze verwacht dat haar vriend Arnold (nu gouverneur van Californië) over afzienbare tijd de extreme anti-rookwetten in deze staat zal afschaffen..


TO THE INTERNATIONAL SMOKERS RIGHTS CONFERENCE.


My fellow countryman and friend, Arnold Schwarzenegger and I love cigars! He as governor and I as citizen of this great State of California abide by the strict rules, which I hope Arnold will soon change!


Enjoying the sun on the Malibu beach in California – topless! A cop approaches, says the bikini top must go back on. A young man returns with a six pack of beer, a cigarette hanging from his mouth. The cop tells him he can’t drink beer or smoke on the beach! This was not me, but my friends from Germany visiting Los Angeles. They could not believe what was happening!


I told them I too came to America, not for a vacation but to live in the “Land of The Free.” This is the impression one gets living abroad and like so many, yearning to come to this greatest country in the world because it stands for “Freedom”! Unfortunately I too made the sad discovery that it is not the “Old World” that is restrictive – it is actually becoming more freedom oriented while the greatest country in the world, the United States Of America is becoming a “Police State” with the kind of restrictions foreigners are attempting to escape!


In Europe where I am from, people eat, drink, and smoke with no problems.


In my opinion, the problems in America for the SMOKING issue are the LOBBYISTS and ATTORNEYS!

  • I've alllllllways said that asking smokers "do you want to quit?" and reporting the results of that question, as is, is horribly misleading. It's a TWO part question. After asking if one wants to quit it must be followed up with "Why?" Ask why and the majority of the answers will be "because I'm supposed to" (victims of guilt and propaganda), not "because I want to."
