Another Totalitarian, Anti-Smoking Crusade

Email Print

The latest act of the US Congress: to get Major League Baseball to ban smokeless tobacco during its next round of collective bargaining. Ballplayers are being blamed for the use of tobacco among American youth. What’s amazing is that the players association is willing to consider this because “Congress feels strongly about it.” Ex-major leaguer Joe Garagiola is playing the smoking Nazi role for the government. Note that Congress is holding hearings on this issue and making use of government agencies — the CDC and the National Cancer Institute — to assist in its intervention.
