CNO: Smoking ban for subs in the works ('maybe when OBumble Quits' sez I..... )

I only have one answer to this issue and were I a smoker on board a US sub subjected to this BS PC ban, I'd just show the commander this picture and say "when this man quits smoking in OUR White House, I'll quit smoking on OUR subs.

 When Barry quits, then and only then should the sailors should be forced to quit on submarines,
that's what I would say.

CNO: Smoking ban for subs in the works

Navy News, news from Iraq - Navy Times: "The smoking lamp will soon be out aboard all subs, according to the Navy's top officer.

'We're going to stop smoking on submarines,' Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Gary Roughead told Navy Times on March 23.

The move is not yet official, so Lt. Cmdr. Mark Jones, a spokesman for Submarine Force, would say only that Vice Adm. John Donnelly 'is examining the options of changing the policy of smoking in a submarine to improve the overall health of the entire crew.'

Jones would not speculate on when a decision will be made, but a final order likely will come soon. The catalyst for change is the effect of secondhand smoke on crew members who remain submerged for months at a time.

'That atmosphere moves around the submarine,' Roughead said. 'You don't smell it, but the damaging things from the smoke are still present.'

The pending decision is rooted in a 2009 environmental tobacco smoke study ordered by Donnelly that showed nonsmokers on submarines had measurable exposure to the harmful agents found in secondhand smoke.

Roughead addressed the findings, and the forthcoming ban, with half of the Navy's guided- and ballistic-missile sub skippers March 23 at a Submarine Group 10 leadership call at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga. Though these Ohio-class subs will soon include women in their crews - a move that has captured national headlines — the smoking ban proved to be the hot topic of discussion.

'Someone said in the course of the discussion after the [health] tests [that] they realized they might as well have just smoked,' Roughead said.

The Navy said it would not share the details of the 2009 study until a decision on the ban is made. A 2004 study to determine whether the forward or aft smoking areas minimized nonsmokers' exposure to environmental tobacco smoke said 'passive smoke exposure appears to be minimum.' The current study is likely to be more critical.

'We are able to discern what the health effects are better than in the past,' Roughead said, without specifying the latest findings."

  1. I have to agree with this one.  The air in a sub cannot be scrubbed the way it is in the open.  Non-smoking sailors inhale 2 to 3 times the amount of second hand smoke than those on conventional ships. They have a right to clean air too.

    I encourage all those who find BO a menace to this nation to give up smoking.  Why imitate Obama whose weak character shows through each time he lights up.

    BTW:  I've been smoke free for 6 1/2 months now.  Did it Cold Turkey!

  2. That's great, I did as well. I smoked for 24 years but I won't pay these raping taxes out here. No freakin way. Actually, yes, the people on the subs in the study showed the same as the smokers. Women are being let on this sub as well so that's gotta have something to do with it too.


Some rules: No leftwing attacks nor Obama supporters so don't waste you're time & especially mine. All 99% others welcome to have your say.
