......... it goes a little too far ......

The work place is different, NO smoking there.......... Just my opinion.
POPS; Your logic is lacking.

It has been PROVEN many times that tobacco smoking is harmful to the smoker AND those that breathe the smoke filled air, no matter the environment. Under Ohio's laws customers have a RIGHT to enter to any business and be free from known/preventable harm. Further; restaurant/bar employees have a legal RIGHT to a smoke free workplace as do all other Ohio employees.

In Ohio, as all other states, no one has a RIGHT to smoke wherever they choose/please. Not while fueling a motor vehicle, not while riding in the elevator, not in the public areas of schools, nor in the most parts of a restaurant, a taxicab, a public bus, a school bus, ad nauseum.

Yes, I have smoked. By 18 years old = 3 packs a day, by 45 years old = 5 packs a day (1/2 a carton!).

I/you/We the People have NO "right", under law, to smoke! Smoking is tolerated BUT >NOT< necessary for life.

That may be your opinion, Azmac, but who gives a rat's ass what you think? Are you a MD or a PhD? Or just a sorry old smoker who makes up numbers?
Here's what the CDC says: "There is no risk-free level of contact with secondhand smoke; even brief exposure can be harmful to health." I think I'll listen to them instead of you.

That is what started the bans when that was reported. They used that as an excuse to start the bans and unconstitutional taxes. It also allowed them to destroy property rights which is what our freedom and constitution is based on. Why all your rights have either been taken away or they are working to do so. Between the patriot act, NDAA and executive orders you have no rights at all. you no longer even have the right to a trial. All because of the lack of property rights. You have been lied to and you are to ignorant to know it. Again you are about to see what happens soon when you have no rights.

The truth is you have to be in a smoke filled room for over 100 hours before SHS becomes harmful.
Give us a reference for this bogus factoid, Azmac. Can't do it, can you? That's because you made it up.

Dude... Trust me.... Do not believe anything that old goat posts. He is an old, booger-eating jackass that does not know if he is coming or going. In one post he claimed he was injured in Nam, Two weeks later he said he was never there. He said they never made Pac-Man and Donkey Kong for his beloved VIC-20 (which he claimed was THEE FIRST COMPUTER!!!!). Once I showed him he was wrong (AGAIN!!), he still p1ssed his panties and said they did not exist. Then the bozo claims there are 100,000,000 (ONE HINDERED MILLION) people unemployed in the US. Hmmm.... Considering that the US population is a little over 300,000,000, that would mean one in three. Considering many of the 300,000,000 are under 16, or over retirement age, that would mean almost NOBODY is working. Awful funny when I drive by the malls and see them packed with people, that if nobody is working, why are there so many people out there? I went to three different places on Thanksgiving to try to get something to eat. Golden Corral (not to be confused with Golden Valley AZ, where they house mental patients), had a line 25 people deep out the door. Cracker Barrel did not have a single parking spot open. Wait, where are all these people getting money from to eat out if 100,000,000 people are unemployed? That reminds me.... How can there be LONG LINES at restaurants? Arizona Anus said restaurants can not stay open because of the bans (another one of his lies). We have places all over up here that have been open for years, and are doing wonderful SIX YEARS after the bans. They must be doing something right. They are.... They keep inbred filth like that disgusting pig and his wife Nancy out. That dumb SOB posted gas was going to $10 a gallon 2 or 3 years ago. Guess what ASSMac.... Not even close, two years later. My best advice would be to just ignore this mental patient. When nobody pays attention to him, he pouts, and goes away for a while, but just like a pimple on your ass, he keeps coming back.

Lets not forget.... This is the same jackass that reads "over 100 newspapers a day" and uses multiple anti-virus programs on his computer. The more he talks the more he proves that he is a disgrace to the human race. His parents must have locked him in a basement cage or something because this idiot knows NOTHING about reality. I love watching him throw a temper tantrum like a two year old when he gets proven wrong. More entertaining than monkeys at the zoo.

Actually I can not as the WHO has had it removed as they removed their tests showing SHS is NOT harmful. Amazing that when almost all smoked their were not these so called smoking diseases around like today. In fact many were not even heard of. But hey you can believe what you want but the things that are killing people do not care if you believe, they will kill you anyway.
When I was growing up I knew very few ill people. Today almost all that I meet are ill and need drugs. In fact about 80% of the kids I know are on some kind of legal drug. Kids never had to take drugs when I was young. A shot of whiskey with sugar in it would cure a cold then. Polio was the worst thing around and very few had that. Only one kid in my whole school. The TV ads are all about selling drugs. What the bans are for to sell drugs and take away private property rights. You have been suckered and to ignorant to know it.

You haven't been arrested yet. You are the guy on here who threatens to kill peoples dogs and invade their home.
Guess what gas will go to $10 or more very soon. WW3 is on the verge of starting. That will stop all oil in the middle east. The government will ration oil. The dollar is about to collapse which will raise all prices sky high. You antis are about to have what you have been supporting, the fall of this country. Coming very soon.

WHO to disclose toxic tobacco ingredients
Published : 2012-11-18 22:36
Updated : 2012-11-18 22:46
The World Health Organization, in collaboration with its member countries, will disclose toxic tobacco ingredients in a global move to scientifically assess the harmful effects of smoking.
What??!! WHO??!! First Paragraph, Mister "I read over 100 newspapers a day". You are a f-ing joke. If anyone ever wonders why inbreading is against the law, just look at AssPimple, and you will see.

Unlike you AssPimple, Most of us **DO** read what is going on in the world.

Oh... BTW.... How is that lawsuit against you going? Remember the bars YOU claimed were closed, and the 'quotes' YOU posted from owners saying they closed because of the ban, that are STILL OPEN!!! Oh well... You just do as your master HarleyRider tells you to do. Just like your mom did what I told her.

Just one more before I go.... A year or so ago, I posted a RicRoll to drive the old alcoholic nuts. Needless to say it worked. Mr. Know-it-all posted that BOTH his virus scanners went crazy. This ass clown uses TWO virus scanners!!:) In his world, which he, AND HE ALONE lives in, he is always right. In the real world, everything he says makes him look like a bigger fool than the post before.

Just for you ass monkey. Guess you missed it in one of the hundreds of newspapers you read on a daily basis.
