Thank GOD! Hiring a smoker is the worst thing a company can do. The cost of health insurance rises for everyone and productivity takes a huge hit. Not to mention they stink. This includes electric smoking machines. No more smoking OBAMA voters!

So, companies are going to start telling people what LEGAL activities they can do when they are NOT on the clock? That sounds like a bad idea to me. Your comment has a couple of issue with it by the way... there are lots of things that drive up health insurance, not just smoking. As for productivity, I assume you mean people taking a smoke break. Nothing stops a company from forbidding this during company time but even at home? What's next obesity and sugar? No more eating cookies when your at home!!!!!

There is something sinister with this. Companies telling what you can do when your off. Dangerous very dangerous. That is why I am not a Democrat no more.

What in the actual F does any of this have to do with Obama? Obama is long gone. Do you realize that most people who voted Obama also voted for Trump? This is stupid! On so many levels!

Not to mention the complete stupidity of your antismoking beliefs. Which, by the way, are the same exact beliefs held by ISIS and by the original Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. And are mostly held by people of that type.

Almost everybody with those kinds of beliefs has something wrong with them mentally or psychologically. I can explain it in detail if asked (or "challenged").

But I am not even going into that right now. Just wtf does Obama have to do with ANYTHING? Couldn't you have at least make it about Hillary or something? At least not be a complete total moron, only a regular moron instead?

Obama used to sneak out back of the White House for a smoke. He loves the cigs and the ganja.

Just another butthurt liberal snowflake that wants to smoke wherever the want boo hoo poor little snowflake can’t be nasty.
