    Vapeforceone meet in Albury

    Well, it was a nice day for shopping. Turned up at the advertised time to meet up at 10 a.m. Saw the bus/campervan/winnebago thing. Sublime and I doubled the number of people at the bus' site, there were two "Legalise Vaping" ''T' shirt wearing non vapers as the hosts. Two others were doing the handouts elsewhere in Albury. Bloke 1 (B1)(head honcho) said to hang around until 12 for the media to arrive, the local paper, and have our smiling little faces taken in photographic form. I have seen Sublime before and my first thought was "Finally, someone that makes even me look handsome". We both looked at each other and knew what we each were thinking..... if vaping makes you look that good, here, take my infant son/daughter and bring them back in a decade! We declined the photo op and ran screaming. We stayed for an hour and then left.

    They didn't have much to offer unless you like bottle openers, Mr Lime did, Bumper stickers, Mr Lime did, Pens, we both did & to sign a petition. They said that they had vape pens (x3) for demos (1 was broken) to show to interested people but they were in the bus. I asked if people get to use them and his reply was "No". My point was infection control and the hygiene aspect.
    Not a free 'T' shirt to be seen.
    The banter was the guys telling of family & people they know and their vape journies, or not, that they had been on. Then, B1 stated that the are some politicians in Government that have an interest in legalising vaping and would not divulge any action in the pipeline from the political side nor any names.

    B1, the paid rep, I would say, and the other 3 on the bus were Uni students. It smelled of Liberal Party undertones.
    In summary, they were already preaching to the converted and didn't seem to have much to offer in the legislative changing area. Just a road trip for the other 3.
    From a political standpoint I hope that they get the message out there.
    Shopping was more fruitful.

    When in doubt, use a bigger hammer.

    Wrong forum DOC!!!

    (But I suppose they didnt tell you about their interesting connections to the far right libertarian and corporate libertarian Menzies institute and Institute of public affairs and other groups like them ? and how they are tricking single issue voters into supporting stuff that might be considered distasteful for some

    Shoulda asked em also why Leyonhjelm has asked for 20mg (killing diy) only of nicotine and why nicotine looks like its going to be held in medical and pharmaceutical people here in Australia ... Intereresting considering he is a major member of many of these "libertarian' groups

    Hope you got something good at shopping - I bought a tea candle oil burner I dont need


    Noones really here - if they are they are probably only here putting an entry for the heavens gift competition over here (ends on the second)

    You will find everyone on the nice new clean forum

    ďBut I donít want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you canít help that," said the Cat: "weíre all mad here. Iím mad. Youíre mad."
    "How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldnít have come here.Ē

    Still it is a bit pointless posting here - no-one will probably read it- so its kinda like pissing in the wind really ....

    I found pissing in the wind to demonstrate my point - but liked this one better
