Last night I saw “thank you for smoking”, an excellent satirical comedy on lobbyists. Very much in the “Wag the dog” vein, this movie has everything. The one liners are great, the arguments for freedom of choice in smoking are compelling. Most importantly, the movie handles the question of how a cigarette lobbyist can live with his job.

The hero points out several times during the movie that smoking is killing over 100,000 people a day, making him far worse that Hitler, Stalin etc. But towards the end of the movie he argues convincingly that cholesterol is an even bigger killer.

The high point, or deep and meaningful point, is when during a Senate Inquiry, he is asked what he will do when his young son reaches 18 and wants a cigarette.

This is a top movie, that will leave you questioning a lot of the crap we are fed by the government.

Later I stood on my balcony enjoying a cigar and thinking back over the movie. If the government really cares about my health so much it would open more, and better hospitals. Right?

I'm deeply inhaling a nice gudang garam kretek as I type this... as my Irish mate says, "make hay while the sun shines" or as my flower children mom and dad used to say, "if it feels good, do it!"

honestly, I think that philosophy of parenting worked for me. It made ME responsible for myself, my health and my choices. Sometimes kids with strictest parents turn out to be the biggest fuck-ups... Now I'm debating how to raise my baby daughter... hmmm the million dollar question..

Anyway PB, I'll try to find that DVD (pirated copy for about 80 cents) here, sounds interesting.

You guys probably dont know what naughty really is!

It's not puppy dog naughty we want to discuss, its real, 100% down & depraved naughty which captures the interest of our readers!

Spanking as a punishment carries no weight, judging by the Forum content, it seems that spanking is a much sought after form of sexual fulfillment.

So there!
