Nothing more than a preview of what's to come under Obama-care. Think not? Pay attention to the news. Obesity/overweight. That's the next target. All in the name of healthcare.

It is the governments job to keep us safe.If that means they have to intrude in our daily lives so be it.People are incapable of making the right decisions regarding their personnel pleasures.The government needs to ban smoking in all public parks,beaches,private homes that have children under 21 and cars with children under 21.They also need to ban red meat and limit alcohol consumption.Americans are incapable of making the right choices.

I notice that you don't say anything about drugs. You must be seriously blown out or insane with your attitude.

Hey, Dipshit, you might want to actually read the article you're commenting on.
It's about private clubs going non-smoking on their own.

"[Members] don't want to come to our lodge because they can't take the smoke and their clothes stink," said Skiba, a member of the Rockville lodge. "It's just inevitable that we've got to make things more accommodating to our membership."

If people had an addictive need to chew mouth fulls of junkfood and spit the chewed food at people in an obsessive and selfish manner, then yeah it would be banned as well!

Johnson and Johnson, the makers of Chantix and Nicoderm, fund the bans through their Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

http://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1E1-RWJohnsnF...

Many tax exempt political action committees (charities?) received millions to sell smoking bans from the RWJ Foundation. These bans are nothing but clever marketing strategy, with lots of highly publicized "sky is falling" hype.

Tobacco control funding sources;

http://www.rwjf.org/pr/product.jsp...

And what the 99 million dollars was going to. Note on page seven the "inside -out", provision going for patios later, AFTER business owners spend thousands of dollars to build them to accommodate their smoking customers, clearly showing that the tobacco control activists have ABSOLUTLY NO CONCERN about local issues or businesses.

After closing many bars, prohibition is their next goal.

We also have the highest literacy rate mankind has ever known, yet you still can't spell.

P.S. Might have a little to do with modern medicine, genius.

The dentist pulls out a numbing needle to give Frisbee a shot.
'No way! No needles. "I hate needles" Frisbee cried.
The dentist starts to hook up the nitrous oxide and Frisbee objects.
"I can't do the gas thing. The thought of having the gas mask on is suffocating me!"
The dentist then asks Frisbee if he has any objection to taking a pill.
"No objection," Frisbee says.''I'm fine with taking lots of pills."
The dentist then returns and says, "Here's a Viagra."
Frisbee says, "Wow! I didn't know Viagra worked as a pain killer!"

"It doesn't" said the dentist, "but it's going to give you something to hold on to when I pull your tooth."

Yep and they will go after it as a health issue thereby requiring intervention. But, that's only the beginning. Chairman Obama has already commented on "wellness and prevention"
This will serve every wingnut out there that doesn't like... whatever.
