The federal government will increase the age to buy tobacco products to 21. Stripping more freedoms from those old enough to be forced to die for greedy, dirty lowlife politicians. It is already upsetting that our military members are restricted from alcohol until they are 21. An oversold point. But, it is worth repeating. If you can serve in the military you should be able to drink, or smoke. If the government is so concerned about public safety they should raise the enlistment age to 21. Oh, but wait. If you do that, you will get fewer recruits. The male brain is still forming until 26 with the female brain still in formation until approx. 24. If the government can’t start recruiting until 21 recruits will be smart enough not to listen to their patriotic bullshit.
Freedom is Righteousness, Restriction is Sin
Freedom is righteousness, restriction is sin. Man has the right to do as he will. I would suggest that a person of combat age, has come of age. You can fire a gun killing a stranger in a foreign land over oil; you damn right should be able to smoke and drink. Also visit brothels, smoke pot and receive an adequate pay for your servitude, but I digress.
I am against the military? No. I am against policies restricting anything that does not harm anyone else. Restriction is sin. I am a veteran who proudly served 5 years of active duty in the Army. When I was 19 it was illegal for me to drink, but legal to kill. Hearing about the raising the age for tobacco is simply another slap in the face to our service members.
Of course they want us in tip top shape to continue to do their bidding. We are nothing but a commodity traded like stocks. Keeps the cattle healthy and the taxes flowing. Don’t retire die in your boots. It’s the American way. Bastards!
Restriction is sin, freedom is righteousness.
