The Knappster on Vaccinations

My internet buddy, Tom Knapp, gives his opinion of vaccination, specifically forced vaccination. Might be tough for some here to follow as it involves freedom of choice.

In case you hadn't seen it, Bob, someone posted a link to this video yesterday and I featured it here some time ago. A youtube video that explains the State of California's War on E- cigs.

Short version: Back when the big tobacco settlement with states was made, tobacco companies were ordered to pay billions to the states. The California legislature, not happy with the money trickling in through tobacco taxes, sold bonds for the money- planning to pay the bonds off with tobacco tax money.

A problem arose when smoking dropped, in large part due to e- cigs. The state then had a hard time paying off their bonds. This left the state with two alternatives: Get more people smoking, which wouldn't go over well, or, find something else to tax. Since e-cigs were the cause of funds drying up, they decided to demonize e-cigs as a way of gaining support for taxing them.

How much the FDA is playing along to help the state is anyone's guess.

Simple enough. As with most things, follow the money:
