Son of a biatch what the frig is with the new cigarettes?  The gosh dang things keep dropping ashes everywhere.  Take a puff and the ashes fall.  What the frig chemical is in there that makes them drop off like the flea of a camel’s ass?  What other chemicals are in my smokes?  Why do they burn out when I do not suck?

Jan. 1 required all cigarettes to be fire safety cigarettes or FSG’s. ”These cigarettes, often referred to as low-ignition, cause the cigarette to extinguish on its own if not consistently inhaled-as if that is healthy. “Cigarettes are made from the same blend of tobacco, thus the only difference to the consumer is they need to puff it more often” http://www.mysuburbanlife.com/westmont/homepage/x254745765, Can you spell b u l l s h i t?

Nick Vujicic was born with no arms or legs. “I decided to be thankful for what I do have, not get angry about what I don’t. “I looked at myself in the mirror and said: ‘You know what the world is right that I have no arms or legs, but they’ll never take away the beauty of my eyes.’ I wanted to concentrate on something good that I had.’

‘When kids run up to me and ask ‘what happened?’ I just lean over and whisper ‘cigarettes’, he laughed.  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1196755/The-astonishing-story-man-born-arms-legs–world-famous-swimmer-surfer-footballer.html?ITO=1490 

‘I tell people to keep on getting up when they fall and to always love themselves,’ he said. If I can encourage just one person then my job in this life is done.”

I pray we were all so humble. 

In the meantime I am wiping the ashes of government controlling just another of my sins.

Thirsty?  How about some chlorine to go with the fluoride and pharmaceutical remnants in your water?  The unending list of contaminants in water and elsewhere — now often called “micro-constituents” appears to be endless.

Contaminants now commonly found in drinking water include tiny traces of pesticides, herbicides, flame retardants, DEET, mosquito repellent, aircraft de-icers, lead, arsenic, mercury and esters, ketone’s and other chemicals found in personal care products. Not to mention additives in toothpaste meant to retard gum and tooth disease. http://www.wqpmag.com/Safe-for-Drinking-article9121

“Like many US Cities, Palm Beach County plans to flush its water lines with chlorine, which could cause a slight taste and odor in tap water later this month.  The stronger disinfection process to clean out water lines will be from June 15 to July 15. Those sensitive to the taste and odor can fill a container with tap water and keep it open in the refrigerator for a few hours to allow the chlorine to dissipate. http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/content/local_news/epaper/2009/06/01/0601chlorine.html?cxtype=rss&cxsvc=7&cxcat=76  The refrigerator?

“Adding chlorine to the water can produce byproducts such as iron oxide, magnesium oxide or calcium oxide, it can also produce trihalomethanes (THMs), including the most often reported THM member—chloroform.” http://www.wqpmag.com/Safe-for-Drinking-article9121 

So much for green infrastructure under the Obama Administration.  Water programs and the US Environmental Protection Agency would see huge boosts in the detailed budget for FY2010 released by President Obama but he also terminated funding for 301 earmarks for water projects.  http://www.awwa.org/Publications/StreamlinesArticle.cfm?ItemNumber=48230

If you find yourself thirsty for change, Obama water is on sale.  The plastic bottles may contain polyethylene terephthalate (PET) as the toxins may leach into the water but research is on going.  Oh Barack, how refreshing! 

The administration has written to Senate and House committees urging them to act on bills that would restore federal jurisdiction over all wetlands and streams in the U.S..  “The Clean Water Act was broadly interpreted by the courts and federal regulators as shielding all the waters of the United States — seasonal streams and remote wetlands as well as lakes and large navigable rivers. The basic idea was that even the smallest waters have some connection to larger watersheds, and that they, too, need to be protected from pollution and development.”  http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/02/opinion/02tue3.html?_r=1

The gederal governement defines water here- http://www.epa.gov/wetlands/guidance/CWAwaters.html

As if the Federal Land Management Grab Act wasn’t enough, the federal government under Obama; not the states, not municipalities, not you who fishes in your backyard pond will have any control over private or public lakes, streams or ponds.   Want to build a nice deck, a gazebo, a boat dock, a swimming float?  Forgeddabout it.  Say nothing of governments right to seizure. 

Mix chemical laced water with a pack of kool-aid, loaded with Nutrasweet or Splenda, and your all set for another Obama intrusion on your personal property rights.  Might as well add the Absolut Vodka; we are absolutely loosing another of our rights.

Don’t even get me started on New Yorks bottle bill.  http://www.observer.com/term/bottle-bill

The EPA offers this http://www.epa.gov/safewater/dwh/index.html on drinking water and health.
