Sandcrawler PSA: Smoking Equals Freedom

You should be free to do all the stupid shit you wanna do!

Iraqis living under oppression from the Islamic State defied the barbaric terrorist group by smoking cigarettes.

To residents of Badoosh, a village in northern Iraq that was liberated just over a week ago, "smoking equals freedom."

You know who else hates freedom? NYC Mayor De Blasio.
Mayor Bill de Blasio pledged his support on Wednesday to a series of initiatives to cut tobacco use, proposing to raise the minimum price of a pack of cigarettes in New York City to $13 and vowing to sharply reduce, over time, the number of stores that may sell tobacco products.

Raising the minimum price of a pack to $13, from the current $10.50 minimum, would make New York the most expensive place in the nation to buy cigarettes, city officials said.

So we fight and die for the right of Iraqis to smoke, yet forbid our own? Especially the poor the same freedom?

Ironic, no?
