Absolutly no rerason to ban indoor or outdoor smoking,These anti-smoking bigots lost their moral crusade on second hand smoke the day they went for out door bans..........the science doesnt even back up any plausible reason for indoor bans except where hate is the motivation to criminalize smokers...........

i agree, ban outdoor smoking as it sets a bad example for children, bring it back indoor where it BELONGS.

Today the robert wood johnson foundation funded a study to determine the effecive output power of hot air from antri-tobbacco proponents. The study funded with $6.42 with left over change from a coffee run to mcdonalds by famed anti-tobacco lawyer john edwards ( a leading lawyer on retainer by RWJF) will begin today. Sneek peeks at the early testing stages show that with coffee and bloated NAZI speeches the anti-tobacco lobby can produce enuf hot wind to power all the formerly proposed windmills off nantucket island for 15 years.........this is phenominal news for the green movement whose spokes person(nancy pelosi) has opioned that a new unfunded forced law mandating more hot air from the anti-tobacco lobby can serve to help the nations growing energy crisis.
Former vice president Al gore upon hearing the news stated'' We can surely find a way to apply the new united nations CARBON CREDIT TAX to such carbon dioxide output'', Mr. gore did not seem to happy to hear that such a tax would deeply bankrupt the anti-tobacco movement.

Maybe we should then ban all the nature killing, no emission control, maintenence equipment. Since those items do more harm to the environment in 50 hours of use then any smoker will in a lifetime!

I am so sick of all of this bull about smoking. There are so many worse things our kids could do. Setting a bad example is ridiculous. We may as well just lock our kids in a closet and only let them out to eat and relieve themselves. What ever happened to the parents educating them about the risks in life? The schools pound it into there heads daily as well. In this day and age it is no longer the cool thing to do and besides the kids "can't afford" it anymore. It isn't like when I was a kid and they were a buck a pack. Let's face it the television and there daily lives show them allot worse things then smoking. Let's get real, the only people who are being punished are the current smokers who, if the haven't quit by now, lets face it, aren't going to. Just give us a break. And just remember, "Who do you think is going to take up the slack, when the revenue for the enormous amount of taxes that we pay a year", stops coming in.

I'll have to admit that's funny as hell, is it yours? PS, it's wrong on one point, there was $6.78 left to use, someone(likely a closet cigarette smoker)must have pocketed the rest.
