Senator Jay Rockefeller hates e-cigs, loses touch with reality

Confused Man

Sen. Jay Rockefeller, the blowhard, idiot and serial hater of electronic cigarettes, has done it again. He’s written for the Huffington post - which has increasingly become some kind of propaganda journal anyway against electronic cigarettes - and his article shows just how out of touch he is on the subject. He makes comments that present as blinkered and old-fashioned, and even shows he doesn’t … [Read more...]

GlaxoSmithKline launches predictable attack on ecigs.

tablets and piggy bank

For years now, anyone remotely interested in electronic cigarettes has known that there have been dark forces at work behind the scenes. We are not just talking about the FDA here either. While they may indeed be annoying and incompetent at times in their approach to the industry, pretty much most of what they do is transparent. It’s slow, but it’s still transparent.

Bad Science Leaves a Black Mark on E-cigs, Again…

Doctors Mistake

Part of the problem of allowing people to have their say is that people will have their say. The FDA recently came up with their deeming regulations and then threw the document out there for everyone and anyone to comment on.

Message to Tom Frieden on e-cigs: Zip it

Creativity in Progress

Tom Frieden is the enemy of vapers everywhere. He has consistently waged a war against electronic cigarettes, and has used his position as head of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to project his (own) perceived legitimacy and even integrity. As a mouthpiece for public health concerns, he has misinformed his audience. His work is through the CDC, and this means he is responsible for the … [Read more...]

This means thinking about society, and the biggest issue in society about e-cigs may well not be their health benefits, or lack of them, or their safety overall. Instead, … [Read more...]
