Temporary D.C. court injunction stops
larger warning labels on cigar boxes

Tampa Bay Times, by Paul Guzzo

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 7/9/2018 11:41:10 AM

New tobacco regulations ordered by the Food and Drug Administration were close, but no cigar. By Aug. 10, premium cigars were to be packaged in boxes with new, larger health warnings. The cigar industry says this is costly and ruins boxes considered works of art. But on July 5, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia placed a temporary injunction on the regulation. In Tampa, known as Cigar City for its history as an industry epicenter, the injunction was celebrated. "This is a huge victory for Tampa’s cigar industry," said Drew Newman, general counsel of the 123-year-old J.C. Newman Cigar Co.,

Comments:
Rush might soon mention this ruling, which chips away at the tendency of federal regulators to require warning labels on damn near everything, or face stiff legal consequences. It doesn´t take litigation to know that any smokeable product might be dangerous.

As illustrated in the tale about the boy that cried wolf, the more warnings there are, the less effective any warning becomes.

The liberal nannies just cannot stop trying to regulate and warn us of every danger. Smokers don´t need a larger warning label. I smoked for 50 years and never had a problem until the idiots mandated Fire Safe Cigarettes (FSC). They tasted like chemicals and I developed a cough and couldn´t breath, so I had to stop smoking and start using an electronic cigarette. If these cigars are pure tobacco, I may start using them.

Whatever the cigarette companies are doing to the FSC cigarettes, it isn´t healthy and they didn´t do it for our health. Smokers complain of sore throats, cough, and other problems with them.

Warning labels have become wallpaper. Completely counterproductive as you can´t find relevant information amidst the sea of warnings designed to fend off the lawyers.

This can´t stand. Doesn´t the court realize what is at stake here?
One of the perks of being in government is the power to force people to do pointless counterproductive things.
Without that, they are just another desk jockey or faceless drone with a clipboard. Why if it weren´t for the fabulous pay, benefits, and retirement they would consider getting real jobs if this perk is taken away.

The underlying idiocy is lumping cigars and pipe tobacco with cigarettes. The Surgeon General reports in 1964 and 1979 on smoking make clear the health risks of cigarettes far outweigh those of pipes and cigars.

I guess the government is much smarter now. Sure.

The next step is for the feds to require larger packages so more warnings can be printed on them. This has become ridiculous.

So happy the courts are working on the important issues of our time. What´s next?
Maybe instead of mattress tags, which are illegal to remove by consumers, a court will rule that the mattress must instead be stamped by a gov´t certified stamper. Enough!

The first goal is the one I think I’ll remember. It wasn’t the pretty one—that would be Paul Pogba’s, which came in the fifty-ninth minute, after a long pass from Pogba to Kylian Mbappé, the visionary precision of which made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. And it wasn’t the jaw-dropping one—that would be Mbappé’s own, a few minutes later, when he blasted the ball almost casually into the net from twenty-five yards out. No, the goal that most neatly symbolized France’s World Cup-winning 4–2 victory over Croatia, on Sunday—and, for that matter, Les Bleus’ brilliant,

Although Germany´s entire defense budget is $42 billion, it is as Donald Trump provocatively observed, only twice as much -- approximately $21 billion -- as it pays to Russia in gas purchases. The facts are stark. "About 35% of Germany’s gas is imported from Russia, and fracking is banned at least until 2021. A former Chancellor of Germany sits on the Gazprom board." At a time when Putin is the international bad guy it´s disturbingly hard to deny that much of his bankroll originates in Europe. Merkel is certainly intellectually aware of the facts.

Why Baltimore Police Have

An interesting news story ran in Thursday’s USA Today. “Baltimore police stopped noticing crime after Freddie Gray´s death,” read the headline. “A wave of killings followed.” What I found most interesting about it, though, was not the facts that were reported but rather that anyone should have found them surprising. “Just before a wave of violence turned Baltimore into the nation’s deadliest big city,” the story begins, “a curious thing happened to its police force: officers suddenly seemed to stop noticing crime.” The story goes on to describe how Baltimore’s police officers reported seeing fewer drug dealers out and about, fewer traffic

I have written so many columns detailing the radical views and mental derangement of liberals that it’s hard to believe it’s getting worse! Liberal candidate for New York Governor Cynthia Nixon (former star of “Sex and the City”) just went a step further into crazy land. She said, “I can think of no better description than to call ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) a terrorist organization.” Well at least it’s all now out into the open. Liberals support illegal alien criminals and think ICE agents who protect our border, protect us from terrorism, and save women and children from kidnappers, rapists and

Mental competency exam
ordered for man accused of

TAMPA — A doctor will determine whether the man accused of running down and killing a New Tampa father is too mentally ill to face trial. A judge Friday appointed a psychiatrist to examine Mikese Morse, after a defense attorney formally raised the issue of Morse’s competency at his arraignment. "This is the first time that my client’s mental health has been brought to the attention of the court," attorney James Smith said afterward. "I don’t think you have to be an expert to come to the conclusion that he has a severe mental illness." Hillsborough Circuit Judge Mark Kiser ordered Dr. George

I personally know appeals court Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who has been nominated by President Donald Trump to succeed retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court. To call him qualified for the role is a massive understatement. A graduate of Yale Law School, Kavanaugh has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit since 2006. Previously, he served in multiple clerkships, including one for Justice Kennedy. In fact, several of his opinions have been adopted by the Supreme Court. As a judge, Kavanaugh has a solid track record that reveals a consistent fidelity to the U.S. Constitution and

ST. PETERSBURG — Student activists from all over Florida came to St. Petersburg´s Williams Park on Thursday to sing, chant, speak and register voters at a rally hosted by the anti-gun violence group March for our Lives. A spirited crowd of about 200 turned out despite the time and temperature: midday and about 90 degrees with 60 percent humidity. Although billed as a voter registration rally, it was difficult to find an attendee political enough to show up, but apathetic enough to not already be registered. Many were too young to vote.

Although his texts to his paramour indicate he hated Donald Trump as much or possibly more than most of us hate Hitler or Saddam Hussein, Peter Strzok insists his extreme feelings did not affect his work in the Hillary Clinton email matter or the subsequent Russia probe. He repeated that ad nauseam throughout the circus-like congressional hearing Thursday. But no matter how many protestations the man makes, under oath or not, Occam´s razor plus most of our life experiences tell us that Strzok is full of it. Still, you need concrete evidence and, in a situation like this, that is hard to

As Paul noted earlier, Peter Strzok testified today–sort of–before a joint session of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees. The hearing crashed on takeoff and never recovered. After giving an opening statement lauding his own patriotism, Strzok refused to answer questions on the ground that an FBI lawyer had told him not to. What followed was a farce–a farce deliberately created and sustained by the Democratic members of the committee. They interrupted constantly with silly points of order, heckled the committee chairman, and generally tried to disrupt the proceedings. To understand how bad it was, just go here and scan the

From ESPN: "Oakley was arrested by Nevada Gaming Control Board Enforcement Agents at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. He was suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known, according to the board.

There is pleasure to be had in watching Democrats make fools of themselves. As expected, President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court has brought out the crazy in America’s liberals. We have already noted an example or two. But there is much more enjoyment to be had. (Snip) You can only shake your head at the superhero powers allegedly wielded by a single Supreme Court justice. I’d be interested to hear Terry McAuliffe explain why “[t]he nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh will threaten the lives of millions of Americans for decades to come.” I guess Kavanaugh is

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

The indictment Friday of 12 Russian military officers for the election hacks against the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign lends a surprising new detail to the 2016 election interference timeline: The Kremlin’s hackers apparently still maintained a foothold in the DNC’s network four months after the Democrats announced that they’d locked the intruders out. Until today, the story of the DNC hack ended promptly on June 14, 2016, when the Democrats went public with the intrusion in the pages of the Washington Post, and Crowdstrike, the security firm hired to respond to the breach, published a detailed technical account. Today’s indictment confirms

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority. Plastic bottles, newspapers, and cardboard, were just a few of the favorites you could ship to China by the ton and make a few bucks along the

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It´s not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask. Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about, promotes, enflames and approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.
