We can hope the Legislature sees fit to protect the people in their great state from toxic cigarette smoke. Restrictions on smoking are what the people want,need and should be granted.

We can hope that Candid will admit she lies by going to "Would you give CPR - considering the smoking issue" and, owning up to her own words!!

Hey Jim; After passing that statewide smoking ban to keep us all in Wisconsin safe saving us from the effects of second hand smoke, why not go and ban all the other evils that we all do to ourselves like eating the wrong foods, drinking, having firearms and kitchen knifes or ban the cell phones to keep us save from ourselves. That freedom of choice of people you should do away with. As governor you then do anything you want without that pesky idea of landowner rights that includes the freedom to make one's own decisions and face the results of that decision.The state legislature will rubber stamp your orders. All of the activists that do currently lobby hard to end all of those evils will be delighted with your action. Why you could be the governor of Wisconsin for life with Washington's approval.
