How many more people have to suffer through the horrors of lung cancer due to tobacco addiction before this is brought to an end?
Every tobacco field should be turned into a forest, for the protection & nurturing of wildlife, not for a new Walmart parking lot.
The tobacco industry should pay for all the medical & funeral expenses for anyone who dies of lung cancer.
The tobacco industry should pay to retrain their employees in wildlife management.
The tobacco industry should voluntarily go out of the business of death, and invest their money in the business of life, becoming stewards of the planet, rather than promoters of its destruction. The growing of tobacco strips the land of precious forests & destroys the lungs of precious people.
Once this is accomplished, then guns & swords can be turned into instruments of healing. These ideas are not new, not original with me–but the obnoxious signs that I saw brought out these thoughts & here they are, in their unvarnished state.
The tobacco industry is right up there with Monsanto–killers, murderers–maybe not in a violent mode, but certainly we all feel the loss that they have inflicted upon us for generations.
It is time for this insanity to stop. It is time for mending to start.
Let’s add insult to injury–E cigarettes?
