The Patriot Post® · CVS Cigarette Ban & Social Issues

By Albert Maslar ·

CVS pharmaceutical chain will remove cigarettes sales from its shelves by Oct. 1, 2014 due to health hazards attributed to cigarettes, causing a $2 billion hit to this CVS cash cow prohibitionists, and activists are ecstatic.

Government is elated over the CVS decision that may in turn open a different can of worms. Health and life dangers associated with the abortifacient abortion-inducing drug RU486 has been approved and recommended by the Obama twin presidents who fly the world in separate government jet planes.

Smoking is prohibited in most restaurants, bars, stores, workplaces, and possibly intruding into other private areas such as automobiles and apartments.

Tobacco causes nearly a half million deaths annually in the U.S. but the conundrum are the tens of billions of Federal, State, and Local tax revenues, proving that when someone says it is not about the money; it is about the money.

If the nanny state is allowed to take away cigarettes and tobacco products to protect public health, government will have license to take away anything that can perceived as harmful, such as  candy soda, caffeine, pastry, and what have you.

BUT; there is always a BUT. But the CVS government approved (Government and A.G Eric Holder did not object) decision may prove to be a doubled-edged sword. Pro-Lifers may argue that if is legal for pharmacists to remove health dangerous tobacco products from their drug outlets without government opposition, then it must also be legal to allow pharmacists the right not to sell dangerous abortion products RU 486, and Plan B morning-after pills, to anyone, especially young girls the ages of the Obama daughters.

Why is there no consideration for about 1.2 million babies killed each year via legalized taxpayer funded abortion? If nothing else, abortion is fatal to those innocent babies. Despite government protestations and policy statements, abortion is neither rare not safe, negative physical and mental effects following women after abortion.

University of Missouri All-American defensive lineman and potential NFL high draft pick Michael Sam, three months prior to the NFL football draft, announced on Feb. 9 that he is an openly proud gay man who aims to become the NFL first openly gay player. First Lady Michelle Obama was quick with her congratulations, calling him “an inspiration.” To whom? As written in Isaiah 5:20, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil.”

Not content to congratulate one gay male athlete that “came out,” Michelle doubled down, tweeting her congratulations to “Good Morning America” host Robin Roberts, after Roberts acknowledged her longtime girlfriend in a Facebook posting.

Michelle Obama on the same day congratulated Robin Roberts and her newly acknowledged girlfriend, Amber Laign, “I am so happy for you and Amber. You continue to make us all proud,” signing the tweet “mo” to indicate Michelle authored the message herself. Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to President Obama tweeted: “@RobinRoberts continues to demonstrate extraordinary grace, reminding us of what’s truly important in life: health, family, and love.”

With all due respect, where is the respect, if not for the Almighty, at least for Mother Nature? If social issues of abortion and the homosexual lifestyle represent “American Values” as touted by the Obama family, “What might be ‘American non-values?’” Oh yeah, Christianity is a non-American value; persona non grata.
