Aaahhhh...the empty bucket chimes in again I see.

Tell us Big Boy...have you figured this out yet?

What kind of person would enter another persons property and demand they change their LEGAL lifestyle of choice on their own land...all to suit their desires?

Come one now...it's really only common sense.

Actually restaurants who go "smoke-free" usually have an increase in profits after doing so. Studies show that tables are "turned over" quicker since customers don't "sit and smoke" after a meal, etc. Healthcare costs are also less expensive due to the waiters not having to breathe in the second-hand smoke. I'm not sure if a state-wide ban is the way to go, but I do understand the point. The healthcare costs associated with smoking costs medicare/medicaid huge amounts of money each year. Of course after this ban, we'd have to start enforcing an "ideal body weight" tax. If you're not within 10% of your ideal body weight, then you pay more in taxes due to the healthcare costs...but i'm just dreaming now...

I honestly don't have a clue what you're asking there. I'm not trying to be mean, but if you could be a little more clear with your comment (spelling, grammar, etc) i'd be happy to respond. Thanks.

I used to have a guy who was about 4 ft 2 ins tall who worked with me. He was just like you trying to convince people how great he was. But with his attitude like yours it kept him a very small boy. Some day you may grow up to be a real man. Noooo I do not think so, you will always be a little person.

And this comes from who? A weak little smoker who can't even have enough sense to display the flag properly let alone the strength or smarts to quit?

Can't stand being around smoke. Hate the stink, hate the taste in my mouth after having been around it, hate feeling like I need to cough all the time from the little tickle I get in my chest while being in smoke. That being said, I think it should be a property rights issue. If a bar or restaurant want to allow smoking, that should be the owners right. If I can't handle the levels of smoke, I don't go there and spend money. If the level of smoke doesn't bother me, I don't have a problem with going and eating. I can generally tell by walking in if it's somewhere I want to be and if not, I go elsewhere.

Well in your case, you are a mental midget and quite a bit shorter.
