Hugh, I know you been around here for a long while, and the real problem is that the Topix smoking forums are dead. There used to be plenty of active discussions, just a few years ago. Now the remaining ones are barely active, mostly kept going as insult fests unrelated to the original topic.

I think this is because the opponents of smoking bans have mostly given up that fight, and moved on to new issues.

Yes you are right. I have moved on to help restore our constitution and freedom. Smoking bans did their job of helping destroy property rights. Now it time to get ready for the this country to fall. Obama is working very hard at destroying it.

So, how are YOU getting ready? For the sake of my younger friends, I hope you're wrong.

I think you are old enough to remember when we were on the brink of nuclear war. Many folks thought that war was a certainty, and that it would happen very soon. My uncle built a fallout shelter in his basement. Kids were taught in school to "duck and cover" when the H-bombs were dropped.

And yet, here we are, 50 years later. That war never happened. Maybe things now aren't as bad as you fear.

The mate is selling tin foil hats on eBAy. That is his dentition of "getting ready". I am going to start calling him Henny Penny. He thinks the bloody sky is falling. The man is insane.

Wonder what Linda B has to say about all this now? Oh wait, she is saying nothing since she is dead. No more boney finger typing for her. I am sure her lawn chair beside the dumpster is being warm though.

Look at history it tells the future. The dollar will crash an soon. Obama is working hard to start WW3. The pot is about to boil over. Every thing Obama is doing is destroying this country. Obama beat out Bush for being the worse president in history. Your air water and food are being poisoned. Cancer and other diseases are increasing everyday. The weather is destroying crops as is the government. A food shortage is coming soon or prices will be sky high, most likely both. Just to much to put in here why this country is about to fall. Yes I hope I am wrong also. I know you do not hear near what I hear that is going on.

Yes I remember the 50s and payed no attention to the rumors of an atomic war. Today things are a lot different.

Sorry you dont know the constitution or our history. Sorry you do not keep up with what is going on. You are one who is helping to destroy this country by being ignorant of what is happening.

Will someone please enlighten this poor confused sole as to where I am located? He seems to think I am in America. You are correct, I may not know a lot about your Constitution, but I do now it would be spelled with a capital C. The mate who posted that article about smoking causing brain damage was correct. You are a prime example. Carry on. Funny how you seem to tell everybody how stupid they are, and you can not even get the simple stuff right. Silly Americans.

That seems all you people really have is to gripe about grammar. No Smoking does not cause brain damage or many of the other things the drug companies say it does. They are killing you with the poisons they put in vaccinations and there drugs. They are part of the system to kill off 80% of the world population and start a one world government with you ( if you live ) as a slave. They have said so but people like you do not believe even when you hear it out of their mouth. All of what is going on in the world is being done by the elite orders. The elite own the food, drugs, banks, media, oil and most of the governments. The elite have built safe places to survive with our money. The enemy of free people is the elite. Obama is a puppet of the elite as are most leaders around the world. Funny when I grew up in the 50s very few of the diseases of today were around and almost all smoked. Only knew one person with cancer and it was a bone cancer.Diabetes never heard of it until the late 60s when pollution got so bad. No one i knew ever had allergies. Now almost everyone has some major disease. As a smoker for over 55 years I am still healthy. In fact most of the smokers I know are healthy, wish I could say the same for the non smokers.

Grow your own garden for one thing, be well armed and stock food an water. I live in Arizona and most in my area are preparing for our country to collapse. The dollar will die an soon that is a fact. Printing money out of thin air and you can only go into debt so far before it all comes crashing down. We have nothing that backs our dollar. I think we are just about the only big country that is NOT buying gold and sliver. China owns most all types of metal now. China has most of the worlds manufacturing an more going to them all the time. An economic collapse is for certain and could happen any day. When I was in Korea years back it was 650 Won to the dollar. that means what cost us a dollar would cost them 650 of their dollars. You can expect prices here to go sky high soon when our dollar crashes.
NASA says we can be hit with a solar flare like what happen in the 1800s. That would knock out all electrical. Also any country can knock out our electrical with an EMP attack. WW3 is just around the corner. Our food supply every where is being destroyed. Much to watch for an prepare for. I just built my own EMP container.

Will you please list your credentials that make you an expert on the subject? I am sorry, but I will trust a medical professional over a drug addicted junky ANY DAY.

You are the kind of idiot that would take his car to a Sushi Chef for an oil change if you think you would save a few bucks.

BTW.... I called you out on you saying you are not required by law to have a drivers license, that they were nu-Constitutional, yet YOU STILL HAVE ONE. Whenever you get backed against the wall, you pretend like you never said something when you get proven wrong. Remember 'I was injured in Nam'??? Remember 'Vic 20 was the first computer'???? All you do is talk what comes out of your dog's amd Nancy's a@@ and have NEVER ONCE backed up what you said. You just spew feces, and pretend like you never said it. GO ahead, ignore it again, and show the world what an idiot you are. Sorry mommy was too bust entertaining when you were young and never gave you any attention. Pretty sad, old ass man seeking attention on the internet because he did not get it as a kid. Speaking of which... He never got it as an adult either!

If society is truly going to break down, maybe it would be a good idea for you and your neighbors to move out of the desert. The Southwest depends on receiving water from other parts of the country. If they decide to turn off the tap, your garden will die.

Without electricity to run your air conditioning, most of Arizona will be very unpleasant in the summer months.(The high for Phoenix tomorrow is forecast to be 118 degrees.)

they are stockpiling ammo instead of wasting their time talking anymore.

ever heard of losing a battle, but winning the war?

your loss is very near. 70% of the American population is done with this political BS.

you don't want to smoke.....great.

someone does.....great.

if a business posts smoking is permitted, then you have a decision to make.

there is no argument.

smoking bans are against my civil right.

When do you think we'll see some evidence of that? When the Ohio Supreme Court decided that the smoking ban was legal, that was the final nail in the coffin.

80% of Ohio residents don't smoke. How will you ever get a coalition of more than 50% to overturn the bans?

Even Kentucky is going for smoking bans in the metro areas now, and they are the smokiest state in the nation.

So are you going to get Martin Luther King to help you with your cause? Guess what slappy.... Your cause is as dead as he is. Matter of fact, not only is it dead, it is old news and it has decayed.

Move along slap nuts.
