Youou...your back...with yet another name! So much to catch up on with you.
Have you noticed some of your antis comrades have been backing the banning of meat smoke...and even meat altogether?
Your side has gone over the edge. Are you ready for the meat ban? Some of your comrades are.
Perhaps you are simply not as "enlightened" as some of your comrades yet...or are you?
Tell us Youou...what is the "safe level" of meat smoke? Will you claim "no safe level" for tobacco smoke...and then claim a safe level for meat smoke?
That would take a pretty big hypocrite now...wouldn't it....
Freedumb...I see your lazy, silly a$$ is still on the forum. It must suck to be you and have no life.

Have you ever wondered what the rest of the world is doing? We are out having fun. My weekend is full, what you doing? OH yea...hanging out complaining on the forum.

I ....myself...enjoy a good meat smoke smell...but am offended by tobacco smoke. I hope you understand that and don't take offense.

You don't have a clue what freedom is... don't confuse being able to bother people with your nasty habit and freedom as we fought for and enjoy every day...
By the way...you are a loser and need to grow up.
Join the army or another branch that will have you and be someone.
I spent my time in the service. I do not believe you served in the service not with the nazi attitude. I have spent 65 years watching people like you vote away the freedoms and rights away. Her is one you lost and do not have a clue you lost it. Only one state lets you own land. The rest you rent the land from the state. That is why you pay property taxes and have to have building permits. I know no military person that has an attitude towards freedom as you do. My job put me on almost every military base there is. My people were at Dessert Storm. We the civilians handle your command centers. Drove some of your vehicles. I have been in or around the military since I was 16.
Tell what freedom you have today.
Congress voted away your 4th amendment rights, they have restricted your first amendment rights, they are working on taking away your 2nd amendment rights. They have pretty well shredded the constitution. They are bankrupting the United States. They will soon restrict the use of the internet,all ready started in Texas. Smoking bans that cause loss of jobs and business. Taxing any thing they can to get money. Sending most of our work out of the country. Want more???Tell me just what freedoms do you think you have. People like you should move to China or Russia they would like your attitude.I have seen what we have lost. From what I have been reading a lot of people will lose their 401k's if they haven't already.

I too can't stand the smell of smoke. What is it that make you want to smoke? Especially when I see the young kids. Do they think they look cool?
And these old men & ladies who has been smoking for years. Man!!! they look OLD. Kinda sad ..

I liked when that law came out. Now I can eat anywhere I want to. And go to any bar without having to leave like I just smoked a whole pack myself.

Thank You.

Cigarettes are legal. If they want to outlaw them, they should make it illegal to grow tobacco (will never happen) and to manufacture cigarettes.
How can they ban something that is LEGAL??
what a ridiculous comment.

alcohol is a legal substance. So how can they ban drinking and driving?

They are not banning tobacco. They are banning SMOKING IN PUBLIC PLACES. I know "If you don't like it, then don't go." Well if you don't like the smoking in public ban, then don't go out in public.

I am against the ban of smoking in bars and in private businesses. But most reasons that smokers give for wanting to keep smoking are ridiculous.

I wonder how much money this schmuck has had to shell out in legal costs just to prove a point. Probably could have bought himself a small tobacco plantation by now.

I smoked for 20+ years , quit 8+ years ago. I ALWAYS respected when someone didn't like me to smoke around them. I'm human enough to care. It was not a big deal to me. Some people are ruled by their smoking habit and they cry when they can't have a smoke.
GROW UP! We have rules , with everything!. Driving , drinking , guns , and on and on and on. These are legal , BUT WITH RULES. I'm all for smokers rights , but smokers don't seem to care about NON-smokers rights. And as for Dr. reports , give the right Dr. enough $$$, and they will tell you dirt tastes like New York Cut , and twice as good for you. Go to inbibe , nob hill , smoke and drink all you want , a bar made JUST for smokers , and not the only one. Flame away.

precisely why i smoke wherever I please...of course..I won't be rude and smoke near someone it disturbs..but in a bar, at the park, in the street, I'll smoke when the desire hits me...woe to person who complains..freedom aint free...and my rights are just as important as yours..I didn't get the opportunity to vote on the ban..and I'm betting no one else on this forum did either...

Ah Yes the pretender has spoken. Let's see I went fishing on Saturday and spent Sunday watching the Packer game with a politician who is against the smoking ban. So I guess my weekend was both fun and productive.
