Danger Danger, a Halloween parable

What is the biggest threat to kiddies at this witching night?

Why passive smoking of course,
Oct 28, 2010 – This Halloween millions of parents - and perhaps many grandparents, friends, and neighbors - will warn children about the dangers of motor vehicle accidents, or of eating candy which hasn't been inspected. But most will fail to warn about the biggest risk, one which may kill more children this Halloween than all of the others combined: smoking in their presence by adults.

And what should people tell their children according to this humourless crowd of dictatorial morons?
Thus, suggests Prof. John Banzhaf of Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), adults should warn their children this Halloween, and also on other days, against visiting, going to parties, or playing in homes where adults smoke, especially in their presence.

They should also stay away from a parent, grandparent or other adult while the person is smoking, and avoid being seated in the smoking sections of restaurants - and in cars when adults are smoking - where exposure is far higher.

Oh for pities sake, will this crowed of publicly funded morons never shut up? I note that they use the word "may", that of course is because they don't have any evidence of any children dying on Halloween or any other night of passive smoking.

Fanatic health freaks thwe lot of them.

How to terrify the kiddies this Halloween... light a Winston


I have been unable to find a "smoking section" in any resturant,i suppose that all the fumes given off by fireworks is deliciously healthy,and treating a parent as if they have the plague,is typical commie nonsense designed to split families,i admit that the smell of cigarettes is not one of the finest fragrances,but it beats the third world dole queue.
