The EPA once tried to enforce the installation of Catalytic Converters onto each and every American Wood Burning Fireplace.
It went over like abortion jokes in an infant cemetery.

What Are the Dangers of Campfire Smoke?: http://www.ehow.com/info_8583488_dangers-camp...
The plain truth is that breathing smoke from burning plant material isn't good for you, whether it's from tobacco, pot, wood or anything else. However, millions have gotten more smoke in their lungs from things like camp fires, car exhausts and barbeque's than they ever would from second hand cigarette smoke.

If anything should be worried about, it's the exhaust from IC engines in our cars, trucks and buses.. Kills me to see some doofus jogging down a busy street, huffing and puffing, sucking in vehicle exhaust.

I won't argue that many need help right now, of both parties, what i will argue is that Obama has not helped the economy and has made it worse. He is anti business, except for his rich buddies.
He has admitted he is in favor of wealth redistribution, doesn't sit well with hard working producers.
Just sit back and watch the collapse.

<quoted text>How about the personal freedom of children not to breath their parents' smoke? How many parents do you think take it outside when they light up? Not many, I'm sure. And not unless someone makes them.
Many smokers no longer smoke in their own homes, except in the lower classes and second hand smoke is the least of their kids worries.

Funny I survived 75% of the population smoking when i was a kid.

He's too smart for that IF he was actually guilty, IF.
And trying him in the court of public opinion, so to speak, is futile, silly and ridiculous. Though you were more level headed than that.
Besides, once a person is found Not Guilty, they cannot be retried for that same crime.
You need to get a life.
And stop running with Topix as your sole reality.
But keep spinning your gears. It's your hysteria.

Every year, about 30 states receive more in federal spending than they pay in taxes, while the other 20 states bankroll the federal government. New Mexico and Mississippi are usually the greatest net beneficiaries of spending, receiving roughly $2 in spending for every dollar paid in taxes. New Jersey and Illinois are the greatest net contributors to the federal government, receiving about 60 cents in spending for every dollar paid in taxes. States in the Northeast, Great Lakes and Pacific Coast generally lose money to the federal government, while Southern and Great Plains states benefit.
BS statistics skewed by small population states that have large military bases. So what?

New Jersey should host a large Air Force base if it wants more federal dollars. Illinois can become a site for nuclear waste disposal.

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!
OH, the smoke came into the house right thru the walls? Osmosis or something else you invented?

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.
Plastic water bottles are killing the planet, aren't they?

<quoted text>Like the unemployment rate is 7.9%.... 7.9% of what? Is that percentage of former workers collecting unemployment benefits or the percentage of people who are able to work but aren't? I'll bet it's actually much higher than 7.9%.
Brokeback Barry hasn't fixed anything:

This “official unemployment rate” has been manipulated throughout the years. The current version does not include discouraged workers (those who stop looking for work, or no longer can qualify for unemployment benefits) and the underemployed (those who take part-time jobs just to get by).

Rep. Duncan D. Hunter, R-Calif., stated in The Washington Times,“The official unemployment rate treats this subset of Americans, totaling as many as 88 million people, as if they just vanished ... call it what it is, an accounting gimmick.”

So What Is the Real Number That Obama Would Prefer You Don’t See?

The real unemployment rate is an eye-opening 22.3%, according to John Williams with Shadow Government Statistics ... nearly triple the “official unemployment rate.”

But as alarming as this number is, certain experts — like Dick Morris, John Bolton, Lou Dobbs, Newt Gingrich, and Larry Kudlow — believe our economic situation could get much, MUCH worse.

Been posting with him, many of these posters on here for 4+ years.

I'm a good read of people. But, I went by the words in his post and what's known as logical deduction, which you lack.

Nobody who is smart is going to post the details of a murder they committed on a chat room thread.
Or doesn't that common sense scan in your reasoning brain?

Stop acting so hot-damn stoopID! Stuff This, sucker lips.

<quoted text>Nobody needs to smoke. If smoking was prohibited, health care costs in America would be cut in half. Smoking is the number one cause of cancer, heart disease and stroke. 46% of lung cancer cases are caused by secondhand smoke. 60% of house fires are caused by dropped cigarettes. Thousands of endangered sea turtles eat butts thrown on our beaches and die from stomach cancer. Like the possession of deadly firearms, it's time for the Government to outlaw this filthy, deadly habit. They should render the firearms industry and tobacco industry sad relics from America's past, like Bush and Reagan. Hopefully President Obama can accomplish these goals before his third term.
Nobody needs to smoke pot, do drugs, eat seafood, have a pit bull, own a large screen TV , get fat as a house, or buy Obama's lies, but they do, Adolph.
