Let us test your intellectual honesty.What a loser this Putz is, he thinks the whole world should revolve around HIS harmful smoking habit. He said they were the only ones in the bar. Was it a self-service bar? No employees?
How oblivious to his surroundings and the people he's harming with his second hand smoke. Employees are not second class citizens. Second Hand Smoke is harmful and has no place in ANY business, public or private.
These smoking restrictions are passed to protect the employees of all businesses. Like it or not! They are being passed to protect the business owners from future lawsuits brought by current and former employees. With the overwhelming evidence about the hazards of second hand smoke, lawsuits will soon be on the horizon. The owners knew about the hazards and did nothing, the local, state and federal governments knew about the hazards of second hand smoke and did nothing. Well, now the local and state governments ARE finally implementing smoking restrictions fearing future major lawsuits the same as asbestos lawsuits happened a decade ago.
This guy is a loser, plain and simple.
Are you willing to apply the same ridiculous standard of "no safe level" to all forms of smoke that contain carcinogens...or only to those of your sides choosing?
Let's see what the EPA has to say about meat smoke shall we? Please take note of the fact that meat smoke is listed right there with tobacco smoke and tar....
Polycyclic organic matter (POM)(A)
The term polycyclic organic matter (POM) defines a broad class of compounds that includes the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon compounds (PAHs), of which benzo[a]pyrene is a member. POM compounds are formed primarily from combustion and are present in the atmosphere in particulate form. Sources of air emissions are diverse and include cigarette smoke, vehicle exhaust, home heating, laying tar, and grilling meat. Cancer is the major concern from exposure to POM.
How is this fair to the cooks who are forced to feed the selfish meat eating addicts? Must they go home reeking like burned meats with cooking grease in their hair...just so the meat eaters can enjoy their toxin of choice?
I thought this was about the right to smoke free air?
Will you claim safe levels for meat smoke, but none for tobacco smoke when they contain the same carcinogen?
That would take a pretty big hypocrite eh?
Just wait till some greedy lawyer figures this out and walks away with a few hundred million.
