Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have more responsibility here than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And that my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. I know deep down in places you dont talk about at parties, you don't want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide, then question the manner in which I provide it. I prefer you said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand to post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to!

Also lets get rid of sodas, red meat and twinkies, I'm sure they cause some kind of health problems. Get off your your high horse,walk to the back and lift its tail and take a good look at yourself!

When the smoking band takes effect, it doesn't mention any distance you have to be from the building to light up.

Just get out of the building idiot, no one wants your loud mouth ass in their establishment anyways. This guy Lavis the "Big Building Contractor" has to take money each month from his wife so he can purchase a can of tobacco and paper and roll his own cigarettes. Do yo realize what it is like to be in a public establishment with some idiot with an outdated dirty ponytail, fallen out teeth and the two that are left haven't seen a brush in over a year, much less a dentist. Duct taped tennis shoes, dirty socks with holes in them, carhardt jacket and pants picked up at the salvation army outlet and screaming at the waitresses to the top of his lungs. This is when you begin to appreciate real classy people with a little dignity. I know when this smoking law goes into effect he will stand out side the establishment with his cigarettes and a can to collect money for gas or a coffee. I witnessed him wipe off a fellows windshield at the mobil station at 9 Mile and I-94 on day just for a quarter, thats bad, especially for a big contractor. However he prefers being a "Nanny" in hopes of being a Court Officer.
