Ahhh, legislature saving you from you... unless you are a casino and give lots of bribes to the state. This bribery magically turns 2nd hand smoke into rainbows and unicorns/

I don't smoke and haven't for over 25 years but this law that this idiot legislature has passed is the most unfair to private business I have ever seen. You have on one hand the right for STATE chartered Casino's to allow smoking but private business can not provide the same level of rights or service to their customers. I don't see how any Judge worth his salt could rule that this law isn't discriminatory is smoking some real wild wood weed. Oh that's right; I forgot this is the same Liberal activist legal fraternity that allowed homosexual marriage in the state of Iowa. Vote them all out of office in November 2010!!!!

I wholeheartedly support the ban and its enforcement. Can't stand to be around it. I don't infringe on others' rights by NOT smoking. Why should I have to put up with their obnoxious habit in public places?

Dear other Ex-Smoker,
Im sorry to inform you that the world doesnt revolve around you. Instead of complaining about the second hand smoke, just dont go to those establishments. Would you go to an adult store to buy contraceptives and then complain about the obnoxious or obscene items they also sell? Probablly not, instead you would get your contraceptives at a convienece store per say. I also assume that you do not own a bar/tavern that has been dramatically effected negitivly by this bill. You ask "I have to put up with their obnoxious habit in public places?"... the answer is... YOU DON'T! Now you are probablly going to retort with the poor waitress that has to put up with the second hand smoke... well she is the one who applied for the position. I did not apply to work for a porto-potty cleaning service, you want to know why? BECAUSE I DONT WANT TO BE AROUND DISGUSTING EXCREMENTS! So please, if you havnt been directlly affected by this bill (other than because you think its icky) keep your mouth shut!
