Uh, Make Puffers Suffer. In case you just got off the boat, the real intended victims of Big Government's tax and control war against the "little folks" who smoke tobacco are the many more numerous *(and lucrative)* taxpayers who do not smoke tobacco.

I see. Long Beach residents are not required to invest time and effort in preparing rational statements. Got it.

Certain people like certain desires and vice, yet others are just a ok. Liberals have no shame and being a liberal is a sickness. The war on marriage and all things spiritual exposed.

Are you asking if I only read about 18-wheelers? "Unless" should be spelled with a capital "U" when it begins a sentence.

Yes, perhaps it is unrealistic of me to expect you to have a grasp of the spelling, meaning, and usage of the words you throw into the discussion.
TK Lawson CPhT wrote:

Oh, my! There's that pesky capital "U"! It doesn't belong there, you know.

Do the observations above qualify as empirical?

If you hit the "reply button" on your post
( http://www.topix.com/forum/health/smoking/TBS... ) you will find a recurring squiggly red line that suggests why I might have challenged your spelling.

And just exactly what is "a lack of poor learned overindulgent self inducement of the excesses many over indulge to comfort ones Pavlovian conditioned self response"? The complete lack of sense in that segment says something about (but not "for") your ability to use words properly.

I live in an apartment and can't win for losing. When it is not nice enough to be out on my patio, my neighbors are also indoors and their smoke obtrudes heavily into my place. It is expensive to open windows and run the furnace at the same time.
When it's nice enough to be outside, the neighbors are smoking on their patios/balconies and I can't go outside without getting smoked back in.
So, even though the rent may be the same, only the smokers can have their preferred environment in their homes. When I suggested to the management that they might consider making some of the score and more of buildings they manager here nonsmoking, guess what I was told. Most likely you've guessed it. "But that would be discrimination".
Why don't you suggest to the management that they upgrade the fire safety standards in the building? If smoke from cigarettes is bothering the neighbors, smoke from a fire would spread far more easily than it should in a really safe building.

Anti-Raucher Hysterie sind "kleine Leute", die eine verzweifelte Notwendigkeit, ihre Selbstdarstellung zu verbessern. Wenn sie an ihre Regierung Sprunggelenk Truppen sein *(sozusagen ")* durch den Beitritt in den Angriff der anständigen Frauen und Männer, die das einfache Vergnügen des Rauchens eine gelegentliche Tabakprodukt genießen aufstachelt. In ihrem Krieg gegen das eigene Volk, sie Organismus

Studies into the circulation of tobacco smoke in apartment buildings have consistently shown that it is the rule rather than the exception when anyone in the buildings smoke. More shows up in the upper stories, but ground floor homes get it too.

That is why HUD is making a significant effort to persuade local housing authorities to turn their public housing into non-smoking zones.

As yet, the vast majority of apartment managers I have talked with are under the impression that it would be illegal for them to make any of their buildings smoke-free--despite the fact that the government is avidly encouraging exactly that step.

Is all of this German crap because you are a group of skinhead neo-nazis showing your colors?

Are you explaining your problems with spelling/sentence structure/word selection by admitting English is a second language for you?

Are the apartment dwellers who complain about cigarette smoke also complaining about cooking odors from other apartments? Proper pressurization of the corridors and stairwells should eliminate both problems. My mother was a smoker and nobody in her building ever complained about either smoking or cooking odors. The corridor pressurization was so strong that you could really feel the difference when you opened the door.

Landlords are skimping on their costs, running crappy unsafe buildings, and trying to shift the blame to smokers.
