    Come on people, those of you who smoke do you want to go back to smoking all the chemicals that the Big Tobacco Company is allowed to add to your smokes. Stand up make some noise. Call everyone you know . Dial Obamo at the White House 202-456-1111. Tell him what you think. Call the news stations and radio. I'm sick of our so called free country. We are not manufactures at RYO Stores..

    • Hey!

      Yeah, although I'm reall sorry to hear about your plight, the man's name is PRESIDENT OMABA, and I doubt you are deserving of any sympathy given that the man you want to help you gets zero respect from you!!!!

      a president that has spent so much of our money deserves no respect. Ok. I'll meet you half way. It's president obomba. LMAO! All the tea party trashing. All the bush bashing and I'm supposed to play nice. Gimme a break. Plus obomba is making it too easy for me with failure after failure...

    Roll Your own. No only that the Kentucky best was on the block in our state with them wanting to make them taxible like Marlboro. I have since found out that Kentucky Best is made of tobacco raised in the American Co-op. Where the Marlboro brand is 80% grown in I think is china thus the tax and what makes it higher in price.

    I guess if one can't come up with an answer, bashing is the next best thing.
    Fortunately, debate winners are not decided upon who bashes more...except in the mind of whoever is doing the belittling.
