Did the News-Sentinel get taxpayer dollars to run this fictional ad ("Could your fireplace be killing you?" Dec. 29, 2012) or are they leaning more left? Typical scare tactics.
There are no statistics, just innuendo — could kill you, tiny harmful particles of gunk, up to 17 tons of stuff each day — no samples. This must be worse than second-hand smoke. Any known related deaths since the cave days?
More than 60 days have passed since this ad was posted. There were three. No comparisons on all-day burns for heat versus three to five hours at night of enjoyment. No pictures of roofs covered with particles of gunk on burn days.
With this innuendo, they (college students and bureaucrats) will force people to spend their money to replace their fireplace with gas or fill it in, then offer tax dollars to subsidize the construction. Typical bureaucrats overrunning California.
What about the black rubber particles that come off our tires as we wear them out? There must be 17 billion tons each day. So are tires up next? Maybe that's what has been the culprit all these years?
No one knows about the billions of tax dollars spent on subsidizing engine replacements and exhaust systems on industrial, construction and farm equipment in California. They don't post expenses, just ask for more tax dollars. Anybody vote on these expenditures?
I think these California bureaucrats actually think they are cleaning the world, but, of course, with your tax dollars.
