Smokers should purchase electronic cigarettes for when they dine out. Non smokers should not pay with their health just because others want to shorten their lifespan by smoking

Very well said. Who wants to smell a smoker's carcass while they eat?

“The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.”
(Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler; 1943)

Something along the lines of the Hitler Youf:
Proctor (1997) continues that “throughout this period, magazines like Genussgifte (Poisons of taste or habit), Auf der Wacht (On Guard), and Reine Luft (Pure air) published a regular drumbeat against this ‘insidious poison’[tobacco], along with articles charting the unhealthful effects of alcohol, teenage dancing, cocaine, and other vices. Dozens of books and pamphlets denounced the ‘smoking slavery’ or ‘cultural degeneration’ feared from the growth of tobacco use. Tobacco was branded ‘the enemy of world peace’, and there was even talk of ‘tobacco terror’ and ‘tobacco capitalism’…. The Hitler Youth and the League of German Girls both published antismoking propaganda, and the Association for the Struggle against the Tobacco Danger organized counseling centers where the ‘tobacco ill’ could seek help”(p.456-457); “Hitler Youth had anti-smoking patrols all over Germany, outside movie houses and in entertainment areas, sports fields etc., and smoking was strictly forbidden to these millions of German youth growing up under Hitler.”(www.zundelsite – January 27, 1998.htm)

The Führer thanks you from the grave:

Hitler was a Leftist
Hitler's Anti-Tobacco Campaign

One particularly vile individual, Karl Astel -- upstanding president of Jena University, poisonous anti-Semite, euthanasia fanatic, SS officer, war criminal and tobacco-free Germany enthusiast -- liked to walk up to smokers and tear cigarettes from their unsuspecting mouths.(He committed suicide when the war ended, more through disappointment than fear of hanging.) It comes as little surprise to discover that the phrase "passive smoking" (Passivrauchen) was coined not by contemporary American admen, but by Fritz Lickint, the author of the magisterial 1100-page Tabak und Organismus ("Tobacco and the Organism"), which was produced in collaboration with the German AntiTobacco League.

You have been posting this crap for YEARS now. It hasn't worked. In fact, people like you have been calling for boycotts for years:
http://tinyurl.com/n8rhtbt
and since they started calling for boycotts, more and more states have gone smoke free. I look at the map referenced above and just laugh at all of you addicts who cannot go through a half hour meal without having to smoke a cigarette. You must be one wimpy SOB to be so tied to a drug like nicotine that you cry like a little girl when someone tells you you have to wait to smoke. Dang! I sure hope you don't do that in front of your kids. We wouldn't want them to know what a lowlife weakling their daddy is.

It should be the owners choice if they want smoking in THEIR business or not its nobody elses business but THEIRS! If you don't want to smell smoke don't patronize their business! This town and county was built on farmers and tobacco being the #1 cash crop! Farming is where a lot of the old money in this county comes from! Way to spit in your citizens face Mayfield you should be proud!

We are proud. Used to be you had slaves brought over from Africa to harvest that tobacco. Guess what. Times change. No more slaves. And yes, it feels really good to spit in a tobacco farmer's face. Much like it would feel to spit in a meth cooker's face. Both deal in drugs that kill people and rip families apart. Some heritage you are proud of. I'm building up a huge hocker to go ahead and spit again.

Business owners of Mayfield just lost their right to operate their business as they see fit!!!!What rights will be next? The right to be obese,the right to breathe, the right to eat where I want to!!! That is coming watchTeresa and Phil and their posse take Mayfield to the next phase!!!! Phil believes so much in Mayfield, that he and his wife went to Jackson Tn. To open a new business. That was their choice, just as it should be owners choices how to run their business not the Government.

Business owners of Mayfield NEVER had the right to operate their business as they see fit. There are all sorts of laws and regulations regarding businesses and there have been since the beginning of this country. Most of these regulations came into effect after business owners let making profits get in the way of the public good. If you serve food, you have to store it and prepare it properly. This came about because too many people were getting sick from eating tainted food. In many locations a rabbit has to have it's hind legs attached because too many people were selling cats as rabbits. Employees are now required to wash their hands because too many were coming back from the bathroom and preparing food with feces or urine on their fingers. There is a limit to the number of people that can occupy a space because too many people were killed in fires and were not able to get out. Same goes for fire doors. I guess you are not familiar with the Triangle Shirtwaist fire:

or 200 people getting sick in a restaurant because of food prep issues:
http://skift.com/2013/05/11/las-vegas-restaur...
How about feces in almond cakes served in restaurants?

No. You have made this all about YOU. YOU want to go and poison the are around YOU so YOU can engage in a self destructive addiction that almost everybody but YOU agrees is harmful to those around YOU. While we can all understand why YOU could care less about your family and friends and their health, we care about our health and therefore have decided that YOU are nothing more than a pariah and that YOU should not have the opportunity to make us sick just because YOU feel like it. Sorry about that, chump.
