Or they'll most likely just smoke more cigarettes to same the same fix.

Nicotine doesn't cause cancer or disease, the smoke does.

So this policy will just cause people to smoke more and increase levels of disease, suffering and death.

Lower nicotine means people will just smoke more cigarettes to get the same fix.

Nicotine doesn't cause cancer or disease, the smoke does.

So this policy will just cause people to smoke more and increase levels of disease, suffering and death.

That also makes most of /pol/ and the racist trolls that occasionally post here on PDW woke AF.

They and the brain-dead CRT-BLM-progressive-activists all deserve each other.

2/5ths of all the thousands that were "lynched" were white. Because they targeting Republicans more generally, not just blacks.

Here's the transcript of the part of the speech where the quote was taken from:

"And it was here in Europe, through centuries of struggle -- through war and Enlightenment, repression and revolution -- that a particular set of ideals began to emerge: The belief that through conscience and free will, each of us has the right to live as we choose. The belief that power is derived from the consent of the governed, and that laws and institutions should be established to protect that understanding. And those ideas eventually inspired a band of colonialists across an ocean, and they wrote them into the founding documents that still guide America today, including the simple truth that all men -- and women -- are created equal.

But those ideals have also been tested -- here in Europe and around the world. Those ideals have often been threatened by an older, more traditional view of power. This alternative vision argues that ordinary men and women are too small-minded to govern their own affairs, that order and progress can only come when individuals surrender their rights to an all-powerful sovereign."

And here is video of the speech linked to 30 seconds before he says the quote:

This is totally fake. The full speech is available and one can see he talking about dictatorships we fight and the clips are edited to make it sound like he supporting those things.

(the first part about 'international order" is real though.)

That's not exactly true. Fermentation is a natural process. All mammals enjoy alcohol when encountered in the wild (fermented berries, palm sap, etc).

Humans first discovered alcohol when the honey they used to preserve mushrooms and herbs fermented into mead on its own.

But just because something is "natural" doesn't mean it won't harm or kill.

Enjoying innebriation is natural for almost all animals, especially humans. And with all methods, whether biologically toxic or not, moderation is king.

The one side effect of regular cannabis use that kinda sucks is the suppression of dream recall. Whenever I take a break, after a week of not smoking cannabis, I get flooded with crazy epic dreams, which used to be normal when I was younger, but doesn't happen very often when consuming cannabis daily for a long period.

Other than that, the side effects are mild for most people. Especially when weighed against the medical benefits it provides for those with ailments.

Moderate alcohol consumption is infinitely worse (for me) in terms of generating 'laziness', lack of motivation, and depression. Moderate alcohol makes me gain weight and exercise less. Cannabis makes exercise wonderful and borderline spiritual experience.

Yeah, they only eat small portions of tofu along with other veggies as side. They don't consume it at the amounts that Western vegans do, making it a primary protein source in meals and drinking it by the gallon.

Oh. Well he can't prevent individual doctors from obtaining and prescribing legal pharmaceutical products.

At least he isn't letting the state order and distribute it. So I'd say the claim that is a "cuck out" is false.

Which executive order is this referring to that was rescinded? There were a few regarding human trafficking.

Just search DeSantis here and you'll see it's being denied by his spokespeople.

It was fake news.

I favor Trump over DeSantis for 2024, but fact is DeSantis has been much better on vaccine issue than Trump.

When I think "centrist" I think RINOs, establishment politicians and Democrats who are only a 'little communist', not DeSantis.

Glad he likes DeSantis, but confused by his messaging here.

My point is "omnivore" is still limited and doesn't mean we can just eat anything. It doesn't mean you have evolved to able to survive by eating a 50%+ diet of sugar, or a diet of plastic and aluminum for that matter.

Many aspects of the modern diet are not evolutionary, particularly the percentage of carbs we consume and especially the amount of sugar.

The diet itself is not ignorant to that. Just people in general tend to be. Keto is about is about high fat intake, and the ratio to protein can be addressed. High amounts of bacon, tallow, butter, MCT, fatty cuts of beef/pork, etc all provide more fats than protein.

12 year old is when they start asserting independence and making their own decisions and having a social life. Teenagers choose what they eat outside the home. Very hard to constrict them, mostly one can only do their best to influence and guide them when it comes to daily choices such as diet or experimentation with drugs.

(It goes without saying that undergoing permanent medical procedures is a completely different mater.)

I was vegan for 7 years and it did far more damage than 20 years of being a smoker. I was so brainwashed I didn't realize how sickly I appeared, until I a did very large dose of psilocybin mushrooms and looked in the mirror and said "holy shit, I need to start easting meat again."

I've been keto/low-carb for past 9 years now and I can barely count the all ways it has helped.

Her father played a direct and knowing role in the murder of 3000 innocent Americans to trick the country into killing a million more innocent people for profit.

So don't be too surprised she may have been raised to be truly evil.

(Yes, I do believe Dick Cheney was in the loop of the plan, if not actively involved, and there is plenty of evidence for that. GW Bush, on the other hand, was probably naive to what was really going on.)
