Tobacco Control Tactics

Today, June 28th, marks the launch of a cooperative effort by unpaid grassroots individuals from a number of different countries and areas who belong to a number of different free choice organizations. That effort is this website, Tobacco Control Tactics (TCT), and was inspired by a website recently launched from the UK's University of Bath under the name Tobacco Tactics (TT).
The TCT website is in some ways a mirror image of that put out by the Bath personnel. The major difference of course is that our site is put together by unpaid Free Choice activists, not professionals, and not feeding off of any grant. A query to the TT folks simply asking about their basic funding has been totally ignored. We are also different of course in our personnel. Michael J. McFadden of the Citizens Freedom Alliance applied to be an editor of the TT website and was asked to submit samples of material he had written. After submission and review of those materials he was informed that....

Surgeons & Politicians

Five surgeons are discussing who were the best patients to operate on.

The first surgeon says, 'I like to see Accountants on my operating table because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered.'
The second responds, 'Yeah, but you should try Electricians! Everything inside them is colour-coded.' 
The third surgeon says, 'No, I really think Librarians are the best everything inside them is in alphabetical order.' 
The fourth surgeon chimes in, 'You know I like Construction Workers. Those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over at the end, and when the job takes longer than you said it would.' 
But the fifth surgeon shut them all up when he observed, 'You're all wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There's no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains, and no spine, and there are only two moving parts - the mouth and the arsehole - and they are interchangeable'
AMEN to that.

We should like to draw people's attention to the government's e-petitions to amend the smoking ban.  As several people have gone to the trouble to place petitions, we recommend fair play and ask you to sign the three petitions which, to date, have the largest number of signatories:

Anthony Worrall Thompson's at:

Daniel Connolly's at:

David Greatrix's at:

We thank you in advance for your time and cooperation.

Ron Paul II

by Blad Tolstoy

This is my second post on Ron Paul and then I'll shut up about him for a bit as I don't want to bore people with my enthusiasm.

The mainstream American press continues to collude in the scheme to pretend that Ron Paul doesn't have a chance, and they repeat the mantra time and time again in order to brainwash the public as they did successfully in 2008.

However, this time the public aren't going to be fooled, and I'm pleased to announce that Ron Paul has just won the Young Republicans' Straw Poll in New Hampshire by a commanding margin.

Paul took 45% of the vote with Mitt Romney coming second with only 10%.


However, having said all that, please take time to view Paul's speech at the New Hampshire Campaign Headquarters grand opening on 17/08/2001. Take particular note of his comments on liberty and privacy about two thirds of the way through the film onwards. Note too, the simple and unpretentious delivery.

You can't drink in front of the children in our pub

by Blad Tolstoy

"Two mothers were refused alcoholic drinks in a pub because the barman said it would be inappropriate for them to drink in front of their children."

A line from a Californian or a New York newspaper?  No, it's in The Sunday Telegraph for 21st August, and it happened in the Britannia pub in London.


Indeed, the creeping alcohol prohibition is moving up notches as it was predicted it would, and unless the drinks industry wakes up fully to what is about to happen to it, then it will end up facing the same restrictions as the tobacco industry.  In fact, at the moment, many representatives of that industry have their heads wedged firmly up their arses, preferring, instead to try and hide behind a hypocritical position which says that one cannot equate alcohol use with tobacco use.  One can. Alcohol is truly the most problematic drug, in that, its misuse causes more social problems that all the other drugs put together and many times over.  Similarly, its misuse is also responsible for an extensive catalogue of illnesses.

In response to this, no doubt, alcohol industry representatives will hasten to highlight the fact that I have used the word "misuse" when it comes to the negative effects of drinking, but that all smoking is a misuse of tobacco.  Bullshit!  In fact, the same argument applies.  There is nothing, I repeat NOTHING wrong with a bit of tobacco consumption.  In fact, an awful lot of people I can think of would be far nicer and probably have a greater sense of well-being for the consumption of a few good cigars or finely tobaccoed cigarettes or, for smoking a pipe.

The problem is the issue of moderation.  We all agree with the principle of moderation, but few of us can maintain it successfully.  Why this is so, I can never quite fathom and the answer is not easily applied by claiming that it's  because alcohol and tobacco are addictive.  There are many reasons why people smoke and drink but why significant numbers do it to excess is probably due to the fact that we are never taught to consume them in a measured manner in the first place.  Instead, we live in a culture of repression: "you mustn't do that, it's naughty," as opposed to: "well, if you want to do that, let's learn how to do it properly."

However, we still do not need a legion of do-gooders and self appointed tin gods to control our behaviour,  As an adult, I'll live with my mistakes thanks (if I make any), and if I need any help I'll ask for it.  Now fuck off nanny!

Ron Paul for President: Forget the rest, they can't win

By Blad Tolstoy

I am a totally unashamed Ron Paul fan and have been for about two years.  This is the only person in the American presidential race who will really make a difference.  The rest are just bricks in the wall — establishment jockeys, both Republican and Democrat -- who want to preserve the corrupt US system as it is.

Ron Paul, sometimes referred to as the founder of the Tea Party, is a true libertarian.  He'll scrap the Federal Reserve, bring the troops home from the various theatres of war, respect property rights and restore the concept of liberty -- centre stage — to American politics.  If he wins, that will have a major knock on effect for us here in the UK and the rest of Europe.  The current culture of prohibition took
flight in America, it was the heart of darkness, and still is, but if Ron Paul wins, then America will change and so will much of the rest of the world.

Ron Paul's performance in the polls is good and continually improving and he recently came second in the Iowa straw poll — narrowly beaten by Michele Bachmann by 152 votes.  However, Bachman had to buy 4,000 tickets for her supporters to ensure that win. In a recent  poll in Texas, Paul beat Rick Perry by  taking 91% of the votes.  However, the US mainstream media has consistently tried to pretend that Ron Paul does not exist, or, they continuously propound the mantra that Ron Paul can't win.  But they are wrong, he can win and, to put it bluntly, the Republican establishment is
shitting its pants.

Please take the time to view these videos and keep checking on Ron Paul's progress.  If you want to see less of a nanny state in the UK, then support the only true libertarian candidate for the presidential election!
