Illinois is finally hoping to back down on the ban for adult venues with no food or kids. It's not worth the effort. Just common sense.

Many small working class neighborhood "adult only" bars are forced to ignore the currently existing bans to stay in business. Johnson and Johnson, the makers of Chantix and Nicoderm, is now finding it necessary to give new money to it's many tax exempt political action committees (PACs) to hire even MORE lobbyists for more enforcement measures. If more enforcement is needed, they themselves admit that the statement that their bans are good for business is obviously another myth. There's even a hint that THEY, the originators of the ban frenzy, might be considering amending their many bans. Many are wondering how much more oppression people will stand for.

What ever it takes, we will do our best to protect all non-smokers from tobacco smoke injury and death caused by self centered, selfish smokers.

Donate generously to the American Cancer political action committee so they can hire more lobbyists.

Maybe when they realize that they cause more problems than they "attempt" to solve, they will STOP THE STUPIDITY!

IF enough people learn that the bans are all based on a lie about second hand smoke, maybe they will come to understand that they are being USED!

when the world health organization (and dozens of other studies) STATE: there is NO evidence that second hand smoke is linked to lung cancer (or ANY cancer according to MANY other studies), there is little doubt about those lies!!

But why would they lie?? maybe this:

At New York’s 1975 World Conference on Smoking and Health, Antismoking activists were told that to eliminate smoking it would first be essential to “create an atmosphere in which it was perceived that active smokers would injure those around them, especially their family and any infants or young children…”

The anti smoking movement started out - trying to do some good - informing people that cigarette smoking MAY have some dangers associated with it - and it would be better NOT TO START - I think EVERYONE agrees with that, and so they were well accepted.

But the movement has evolved into something TOTALLY different - Now stating that "SMOKERS ARE GUILTY OF CAPITAL CRIMES" which was (until recently) published on the front page of the A.S.H. website! They have been fully convinced that we should be killed - ONLY because we are smokers.

If you don't see the correlation between them and Hitlers Germany, Then it's TIME TO WAKE UP!

To show this further:

John Banzhaf, you can see who he is here; http://banzhafwatch.org/ - the founder, and undisputed "Voice" of ASH (Action Against Smoking an Health) and the group that most of the Anti's get their info from, made a statement in the 1980's, claiming that "ALL THEY WANTED" was separate smoking sections, that's all, just separate smoking sections. He went on to say, "We don't care if people want to smoke in their offices, or even in hospital rooms, IT'S THEIR RIGHT TO SMOKE."

This is THE VERY SAME MAN who today states: that
......smokers are guilty of CAPITAL crimes.
......THAT SMOKERS HAVE NO RIGHTS!
..... SMOKERS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO ADOPT CHILDREN
and that PEOPLE WHO SMOKE WITH CHILDREN IN CARS - ARE KILLING THEM!

He has been called - a "Sleazy, ambulance chasing lawyer", who sells CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT KITS, to anyone who wants to start a lawsuit - AGAINST ANYTHING HAVING TO DO WITH SMOKING!

If you have tried the link I posted above; you will also learn that he is also the twisted lawyer that drempt up the idea of Sueing THE FAST FOOD JOINTS - FOR MAKING YOUR KIDS FAT!

THIS IS THE WHOLE "BACKBONE" BEHIND THE ANTI-SMOKING MOVEMENT ! THIS IS WHERE THEIR PHILOSOPHY COMES FROM!

They lie simply because the truth does not support their goal of banning smoking.
These bans CAN be stopped if bar and other business owners work together in educating their staff and customers about the lies behind the bans and encourage them to speak out and contact their legislators.

The most recent (2008) WHO report on tobacco states

"Research clearly shows that there is no safe
level of exposure to second-hand smoke. The
Conference of the Parties to the Framework
Convention,the WHO International Agency
for Research on Cancer,the US Surgeon
General and the United Kingdom Scientific
Committee on Tobacco and Health all concur
that second-hand smoke exposure contributes
to a range of diseases, including heart disease
and many cancers. For example, second-hand
smoke exposure increases the risk of coronary
heart disease by 25–30% and the risk of lung
cancer in non-smokers by 20–30%."

This is just what the state needs to be spending money on right now is investigating GASP smoking in bars. Good to know snitches will still have a job even though nobody else will.
