Do you think the extremes are destroying their positions or do you applaud them for their unrelenting positions?
The extremes represented by The Freedom Caucus in Washington, D.C. and Take ‘Em Down NOLA may be destroying their own positions.

But they say that it's -- and they. Trigger the urge in adult smokers that seemed to indicate that. When someone smokes on TV it creates the urge for smokers were watching to light up. So I'm very very much like to hear from some of you smokers when you see some -- smoke on TV. Does that urge you to light up and what other things causes you to -- government as a kid. My parents both smoked I did not. And I remember my dad saying how much he enjoyed smoking after a meal. I'm about I guess fourteen at this point. So I decide that I'm going to plan. To light up a cigarette. My father smoked Camel Cigarettes. Which were nasty strong cigarettes. So I it's neutral it was smokes. And I decide to play hooky from school. Because. I want to enjoy smoking. After meals. I -- all planned out my meals going to be a -- of chicken noodle soup. And grilled cheese which -- I can't wait to eat this food so -- can have my meal.
