So the other day I'm watching my niece, and I thought it might be a good idea to take her to the library, cause they say readin is good for the kids little minds.
Anyway, we're browsing the kids sections, and I've got the urge to light up a smoke. Now, it's freezing outside so no way am I goin out and freezing my tush off in the cold. So I light up in the kids section and after a minute or so some library volunteer person asks me to go outside or put out my cigar. I think I was ratted out but whatever.
So considering I donate $5 every year to the library I feel I should have the right to light up if I want to. We smokers gotta stick together on this issue cause all the health nuts are making it hard on us.
Am I right? Whose with me?

Well I am a smoker and I agree with you that it's time that ALL smokers begin to push back against the tidal wave of non-smokers. We have been pushed into the corners and out in the cold of every public establishment. We deserve to be treated equally!

I'm not sure your huge contribution to the library will be missed but I agree with you whole heartedly. In fact I would encourage your niece to light up. What the hell Miley Cyrus is doing it, right?

Let's stick together!

Exactly. You can't even discuss smoking without some non-smoker, who is sooo far above these natsy smokers, jump in with a negative comment.

Typical....
Hey Merry Christmas to all the smokers.

Is it just me or are the nonsmokers angry and arrogant imps, while the smokers are mello gents? Perhaps when you're not playing with your "door rollers" (won't even guess what that means), you might consider taking up smoking. It should at least cool off all of that pent up anger you have at your fellow Americans you sad little twit.
You must be the road rage type as well.

I think its time to pass additional tobacco taxes. Whos with me? We need to milk as much money as we can before they die.

I'm with you 100%. Tax the heck out of tobacco. Costs us all in the end, when they all die of cancer and we have to fit the bill.

You, sir, have outraged me. With your careless actions, you have provided free second hand smoke to all the deadbeats in the library who refuse to pay for their own tobacco. I'm sick and tired of all the non-smokers who freeload and not paying their fair share of taxes. The only way I can see to remedy this is to institute a non-smoking tax.

It's "foot" the bill, not "fit" the bill.

And what a double standard we have in this state! Heaven forbid we tax sugary sodas that are fattening our children, and rotting teeth right? We only want to tax the things we personally don't like, which makes people like you no better than me.

Great point Jerk! AROD probably isn't aware that all of that Pepsi he is washing down his ranch Doritos will lead to his demise at a faster rate than and smoke will.
Don't worry AROD, we'll pick up the tab. And by the way, maybe you should switch to tab!!
