Isn't Bill Clinton the cigar salesman with the best smokes?

He invented a special "Fish Flavored" stogie.

I find humor in it. Therefore it is not worthless.

Mn: Land of 10,000 taxes. Taxing any product at 95% is insane. The nanny state needs to stop with the so called "sin" taxes and figure out how to address the real issue. The fact that government does not have issues with revenue, it has issues with spending. They just can't stop spending on things they should not be spending on.

The liberal answer to every thing, ban it. They think all adults are too stupid to make their own decisions, just because they are.

Don't knock it until you've tried it. A nice filet mignon grilled medium rare over charcoal, smoked with pecan chips, followed up with a nice peaty scotch on the rocks a good cigar, while you sit in the back yard listening to the frogs chirp and the cicadas whine, are some of lifes finer pleasures.

To each, his own. No one is forcing you to consume those products. Just don't presume to take them away from those of us who would.

Includes nothing. Only socialist, communist, or deranged theocratic governments try to regulate what people do with their bodies on their own time. America is none of those yet. It's been tried, it doesn't work very well.

No one is taking those away from you, so don't be such a crybaby. They are just telling you there are places that you cannot consume them. This is no different than what they have been doing, except that they have expanded the areas that you cannot smoke. There are many places where it is illegal to consume alcohol from an open container and we do not hear the alcoholics pissing and moaning about that. The only people who are upset are the weak willed nicotine addicts who think that they cannot get through a meal without a smoke. The MAJORITY who do not smoke do not want to suffer from ill health just because a bunch of addicts want to smoke whenever and wherever they please.

Crybaby my eye. Businesses were banning smoking indoors long before the campaign to make it a law began. But that wasn't good enough for the health nazi''s. Restaurants began banning smoking in the late 80/s or early 90's. But that wasn't good enough for you health nazi's. You wanted a law. Even some bars banned smoking indoors and that wasn't good enough for you health nazi's. You wanted a law. And most smokers were fine with that. Most understood that non-smokers didn't like stinking like an ash tray after an evening of pickling their livers and driving home plastered. The point is, the tide was turning and the market was adapting. And there was indeed a market for non-smoking bars, casino's etc. But that wasn't good enough, you health nazi's had to have a law so you could go where you want. ANd the lawyers needed it so they could sue the tobacco companies for billions of dollars, most of which went to,,,,the lawyers. All because you health nazi's wanted a law that was unnecessary and unneeded.
