“You are about as sharp as a rolling pin! Chicago has high crime and murder rate, as DC, Mexico and so forth and so on. Whats the common denominator? Gun restrictions.”

“Hitler disarmed his populace, see how that turned out? Stalin done the same. I can list 50 that worked out the same way, none that did not. The only reason the UK has not as of yet is to trick the liberals here into buying it here.”

“I agree. You can find them on Fox, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS and other MSM. They are sponsors for every news show on these stations because if they are funding "Citizens United", Then they are also funding the left wing orgs too. You can't lose when you own both sides.”

“And big pharma is at the other end with the liberals. One recently had to cought up 3 billion for falsifying trials, bribery of government officials and much much more. But this comment will probably not make it to the board.”

“No, actually PhRMA, the pharmaceutical drug lobby, is also a member of the rightwing front group ALEC.  There is no similar organization on the left.”

“Pfizer donated 41 million to ASH and John B. The founder and legal repulsive of the group. The smoking cessation market is a 2.3 Billion per year industry. I could also show money ties to every single special interest group that is against the e cigarette and writing bills to ban them, then getting lawmakers that get huge donations from big Pharma. There is a lot more at stake other than the tobacco companies and the tax revenues on tobacco.

It is a domino effect. Smoking cessation products only help about 5% of people who want to quit, but it is a 2.3 billion per year industry, they do not want people to quit smoking, if they do, they lose their industry, big tobacco loses it's revenues and the government loses theirs.

All of these bills that are being brought up at state level now are NGO's that are funded primarily by big pharma. These same groups run the advisory boards on the FDA that also work for these NGO's that are directly funded by big pharma.

I could name names and companies, but to make it easy, they are all in it together.”
