Tobacco will terrorize and take over 1, 6000,000 million Americans lives during these
four years according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Yellow journalism continues to help hide tobacco.


State of Union Address
January 19, 1999
by President Bill Clinton

"As everyone knows, our children are targets of a massive media campaign to hook them on cigarettes. Now, I ask this Congress to resist the tobacco lobby, to reaffirm the FDA's authority to protect our children from tobacco, and to hold tobacco companies accountable while protecting tobacco farmers.
Smoking has cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars under Medicare and other programs. You know, the States have been right about this: Taxpayers shouldn't pay for the cost of lung cancer, emphysema, and other smoking-related illnesses; the tobacco companies should. So tonight I announce that the Justice Department is preparing a litigation plan to take the tobacco companies to court and, with the funds we recover, to strengthen Medicare."

State of Union Address
January 28, 1998
 by President Bill Clinton

"Let's do what it takes to bring teen smoking down. Let's raise the price of cigarettes by up to a dollar and a half a pack over the next 10 years, with penalties on the tobacco industry if it keeps marketing to our children. Tomorrow, like every day, 3,000 children will start smoking, and 1,000 will die early as a result. Let this Congress be remembered as the Congress that saved their lives."

Recently, the IRS took 3 business days to answer a nonprofit questioned for I Will Never Use Tobacco, Inc. Mike Sawyer was excited to get a positive ruling on his possible unprecedented question of concern.

A Kentucky corporate Public Relations Director told Mike Sawyer that his corporation can't donate to I Will Never Use Tobacco, Inc. because of the tobacco farmers influence on his corporation.

To whom this may concern,
My name is Crystal  and I'm from Ohio.  I just visited your website and
I think that what you are doing is great!  I learned of the site from a
commercial on tv and actually just went to the site just to see if there
really was one called that.  I just think that it's great how you are speaking
your mind and speaking out about tobacco.  If only there were more people like
you, then more teens would not be using tobacco and killing themselves.  Thank
you again!

High School

P.S. I would like any more info that you would have or like to know if I can
help you in anyway.  Thanks again!

    I am a 14 year old female i have never used any tobacco products(or acohol) i know you are probably thinking i still have plenty of time to use it.I could easily get tobacco products only because i have an 18 year old brother who dips all the time and smokes ever now my mom told him how bad the habbit was but it was too late.He was already hooked.he says he is gonna quit and he says it over and over but he just cant.he has tryed for 2 years off and on never works though. But i hope i will never feel the need to pick up such a harmful habbit.What you are doing is great maybe someday more people will be able to do what you are doing.

Only Time We Can Turn Our Backs On Tobacco!

Players from
Winchester, Mt. Vernon, Brodhead, Madisonville, Frankfort, Lexington, Campbellsville, Berea, and Wilmore 1999, maybe the best 13-under all-star baseball team ever in Kentucky (a couple of these could be Professional Baseball Players) .  Number 69 Clint Graham from Campbellsville, KY was 6' 7" as a young 13 and so much coordination
 SMOKING KILLS Baseball 11'S & 12'S won 5 open tournaments in 1999. Corey Hoskins and Hunter Sawyer combined to pitch a perfect game in one of these games.  SMOKING KILLS Baseball 12'S won four games in the Anderson-Dean tournament by the slaughter rule in 1999. The 12's played an unimaginable  six games in one day in the Estill County Open 12-team tournament to win the tournament at Mid-night.

The only time we can turn our backs on Tobacco!

You describe your passion to defeat tobacco as "uncontrolled," not so. You are the most dedicated and thus controlled person I have been privileged to become acquainted with in all my twelve years as an anti-tobacco activist. You have done more with your meager resources than those far better financed.

If some future day someone asks, " who was Mike Sawyer and what did he do for his fellow man," I would answer simply, " he saved a great many people from an early and painful death from a tobacco caused disease."
