This forum is the only place remaining for a weird dude like you to express his stupid so just maybe we should have more tolerance for the less fortunate. But damn moonbat.

For once we agree. "Sin taxing" should apply to all vices. However, people should smoke wherever they want. Hospitals used to have smoking rooms on every floor. Malls had butt containers wherever there were places to sit. Movie theaters had smoking sections. Restaurants had smoking and non-smoking sections.
No one ever complained. It was a fact of life. But the PC police started controlling this behavior and people's minds to ostracize those who engaged in this behavior. And we've all became a bunch of wimps.
Sucking in exhaust fumes in traffic is more harmful than second-hand smoke.
It'd be nice if smoking tobacco was never part of the human experience, but it's our willingness to be controlled to the point of ostracizing that's so worrisome.
no, you are wrong..people did complain. that is why it changed. in most cases, it was a workplace safety issue as second hand smoke IS harmful, proven fact.

Republicans Keep Lying to Their Base, and It's Preventing Them From Governing

Republicans like to promise things they can’t deliver, like huge tax cuts that pay for themselves or health reform plans that don’t disrupt the existing system. And that’s made life difficult for Democrats trying to propose initiatives that, in order to accomplish real goals, come with real costs. But lately Republican delusions about policy have hobbled somebody else: Members of their own party trying to show that, yes, the GOP can govern responsibly.

Marco Rubio’s Absurd Foreign Policy

Where to begin.

First, it is absurd to suggest Putin felt free to restore Crimea to Russia because of Obama’s inaction in Benghazi. And while Castro’s Cuba and Kim Jong-Un’s North Korea are totalitarian, Putin’s Russia is not Stalin’s. Nor is Xi Jinping’s China Mao’s China. Russia and China are great power rivals and antagonists, not the monster regimes of the Cold War that massacred millions. We must deal with them, and they don’t take direction from Uncle Sam.

As for Iran, 17 U.S. intelligence agencies say it has no nuclear weapons program. Moreover, Hassan Rouhani is an elected president now presiding over the dilution of his 20-percent-enriched uranium in compliance with our November agreement.

McCain points to Obama’s failure to enforce his “red line” in Syria with air and missile strikes, when Bashar Assad used chemical weapons, as the reason Obama is not respected.

But a little history is in order here.

While John Kerry and Obama were ready to attack Syria, it was the American people who rose up and said “no.” It was Congress that failed to give Obama the authorization to go to war. If McCain, Graham and Rubio think Obama should attack Syria, why don’t they get their hawkish Republican brethren in the House to authorize war on Syria? See how that sits with the voters in 2014. Last fall, Lindsey Graham was shopping around a resolution for a U.S. war on Iran. What became of that brainstorm? After Iraq and Afghanistan, Americans are weary of what all this bellicosity inevitably brings.

It's time you got with the program.

In the Obama economy and using the official Obama language (like from Orwell's 1984), you should post

'Illinois employers plan to free 1,000 employees from job lock in the coming weeks'

Now they CAN ALL BE POETS. Nancy Pelosi will be thrilled!!!

Sure Carol, one delusional liar quoting another.
Peters is an unabashed hater of American principles and will stoop to any depth to slander those with whom he disagrees. His past commentaries have included arguing that the United States should fight back against our enemies with the same tactics they use against us – by which he means terror and torture. Peters also yearns for the blood of journalists whom he regards as terrorist worshiping infidels. He literally called for military attacks on media targets saying that;
“Rejecting the god of their fathers, the neo-pagans who dominate the media serve as lackeys at the terrorists’ bloody altar. Although it seems unthinkable now, future wars may require censorship, news blackouts and, ultimately, military attacks on the partisan media.”
And in a fit of treasonous lust, Peters even took the side of our foes in Afghanistan by suggesting, without evidence, that a missing American soldier was a deserter and that “the Taliban can save us a lot of legal hassles and legal bills,” presumably by killing him.
Last year he went off on the President saying;
“You cannot deny that Al Qaeda is out to kill Christians and Jews and, by the way Shia Muslims, and any Sunni Muslims who don’t live up to their standards. It’s one of the most murderous cults in history and the Obama administration is still looking for common ground with these guys.”
From what chasm of bile-soaked stupid did Peters get the notion that Obama is looking for common ground with Al Qaeda? But he wasn’t done there. Peters went on to smear millions of people when he referenced what he called the “American left” and maligned them all as “apologists for terror.”
By the way nitwit, Obama's handling the invasion exactly the same way Bush handled Putin's invasion of the Republic of Georgia.
You're an idiot Carol!
Don't know if I would go so far as Lt. Col. Peters to use military attacks on the media - and since you didn't post a source, I have no idea if what he said was taken out of context - but I do think the liberal media should be put on the hot seat and investigated as another appendage in aiding and abetting the corruption in this administration charged with shirking their responsibilities to protect the people, not protecting those who hold power over the people. Even if he is their little darling.

Lt. Col. Peters warned back in February on the Kelly File that Putin would do exactly what he's doing in the Ukraine after the Olympics and said "mark my words".

Obama read about the Russian invasion in the newspapers.

So why do you even entertain the idea that this president has any idea in the world what to do when it comes to foreign policy? Very few do. Lt. Col. Peters was right about that too.

Midol was one of the first effects of an ObamaCare tax on the middle class.

Pre-ObamaCare, Midol (along with Tylenol, etc) was covered by an employee's Flexible Spending Plan. With ObamaCare, OTC drugs no longer covered. And the family plan went from $5K allowed per year to only $2500 allowed per year.
