Me again
I was only advocating 100 percent censorship of tabacco
companies as a second best plan to assasination by terminal cancer
patients of key tabacco inc spokespersons/p.r/ad designers.
Plus, the tabacco co's know it is peer pressure that causes kids
to smoke and no doubt they will have done their research to maximise the
effects of the money they spend on these kids (sports sponsorship etc).
Its just another form of group madness here, I dont really
believe any individuals in tabacco inc are fully conscious of their
murdering ways, thats what will make it a bit sad when one of those
fucks is finally killed by someone on thier last legs.
