<quoted text>All of the adult males on my dad's side of the family (and a few females too) were smokers when I was a kid and it dang near killed me more than once. I had bronchitis when I was little and not one of those adults was willing to make an effort to quit. Every house I lived in or relative I visited had a home that was thick with smoke. There wasn't a room I could escape to that I wasn't coughing and/or choking. Winter was the worst. I always caught a cold AND the flu every winter and it always turned serious for me. If I wanted to breath at all I had to flee to the outdoors no matter how sick I was and then returning inside in the evening with the dry heat and smoke that built up after work was torturous on my little body. My eyes, throat and lungs felt like they were on fire.

Once I turned 18 and escaped that environment my immune system was able to fight off the flus and colds better. Now, that I have a choice about the condition of my home environment, I don't catch them at all.

You people might want to try considering the health of your little ones over your own selfish desires...just for awhile...and maybe, just maybe your kids won't resent you when they grow up. Maybe they won't put you in a nursing home when you get old. Maybe they won't blow off your funeral when they remember how uncaring you were about their well being. Maybe.
I have treated many a small child in respiratory distress; parents reek of cigarette smoke. "But, we smoke outside." It makes no difference how many times we attempt to educate that this has no bearing.

My kids destroyed every pack of my cigarettes they found. I got the message and quit. I live to see their children cause them the same degree of joy (and grief) they caused me!

Probably broke the meter.

Oxygen can be piped *through* hospital walls, Jerk, and not *in* hospital walls.

Many parents engage in behavior far worse for their children than smoking. Do you want the government to regulate every aspect of your life?

(Note that Galt detests smoking, but detests government interference even more.)

The government demand to destroy the American hamburger by overcooking is particularly offensive.

I remember this. My parents have always heated their home with wood burning stove; major undertaking to make the conversion.
Humans have been polluting the world forever with campfires and clear-burns for agriculture and hunting. But so, too, has the world itself polluted itself with volcanism, lightning and lightning-forest fires, methane releasing plants and swamps and rotting animals.

The major difference hear is that the Earth heals itself over tens of thousands and even millions of years and it's polluting is widely distributed over time and distances. Humans are quick and dirty, so quick and dirty that the Earth can't keep up its cleaning chores anymore.

But I don't think that campfires, Autumn Leaf Burning and smoking tobacco in the privacy of out homes is going to bring time to a standstill. We drink from plastic bottles leaching chemicals that can cause genetic changes. We consume foods made from GMO tinkering that hasn't been thoroughly explored for safety.. We tolerate a lot of dangerous behaviors from alcohol consumers at sports events and laugh it off, Modernista babes are cutting off their toes to fit into stylish high heels, mothers are getting plastic surgery for their prepubescent darlings and taking drugs to lose weight and yet the PC Chihuahuas are yapping at every corner about 64oz. pop, 2nd hand smoke, McDonald's Menu and quoting Dr. Oz like he was the Wall st. version of St. Peter.

Hypocrisy and misdirected priorities are more of a social problem than the PC Crowd's latest Project-Of-The-Day.

The Liberal world often triggers my memories of the book and movie Fahrenheit 451 where the Television is central to every human being's existence. When the story's central character dares to actually read a book and then escapes custody for doing so, the TV announces it and calls on all good citizens to take a moment and go outside to search their neighborhoods for the scoundrel. Hundreds of millions of doors opened wide and the grand PC crowd moved outdoors.
Oprah Winfrey, Hollywood celebrities, The View, Rock Stars and a laundry list of other PC Aggregators along with The Boy Messiah's Wu Mao Dang crowd make up today's source for the obedient Fahrenheit 451 TV slaves.
Fahrenheit 451 is no longer fictional literature but a growing reality of the Boy Messiah's Hope & Change Bible. Say "Hallelujah!", brother. Lez go down 2 da ribba an' git da water!

And, if you overcook that hamburger, the ash becomes a carcinogen and the Food Police will then have you arrested. Damned if you do, Damned if you don't....Red Meat will then become history and Michael Bloomberg will demand that all New Yorkers become Vegans or face severe penalties and fines.

We need more Ayn Rands and fewer Boy Messiahs.

Pure oxygen itself is not combustible, but combining it with other elements makes THEM extremely combustible, just like pure water doesn't conduct electricity. It's the minerals and impurities in the water that conduct the electricity.

Good observations. Myself, I find TV to be an addictive wasteland. There is truly nothing new on TV. The stories are improved, slick versions of the 2000 year old Greek tragedies assisted by High-Tech, tweaked by visual arts and presented as being fresh like you might present Wax Fruits.

The mind needs to be fed healthy, nutritious food for thought to remain healthy. Today, the minds of millions are being fed Wax Fruit by the Temple Priests of The New Reality.
