There is a question I have never seen asked of the antismoking groups that push these bans. If they did one would hear crickets.

"Is your group willing to reimburse businesses that lose money as a result of the ban you are proposing?"

Some businesses do fine and others don't, but it is normally the Ma & Pa establishments that are hit.

So have you heard that question asked? Has it been asked a bunch of times and the answer wasn't very exciting.

Really? All these stupid commercials saying workers need a safer place to work, okay well first of all no one forces them to work there. If that business allows smoking and u don't like smoke, DON'T WORK THERE!! There are plenty of other places looking for work. Seriously! And if ur in a bar by someone who's smoking, MOVE AWAY FROM THEM!! It's not hat hard. We don't tell u how to dress or where you can eat so why do you get to tell us where to smoke? We r going to allow alcohol to be drank in public but people can't smoke a cig in public? I don't understand this stupid law. Whatever happen to our free country??
