I don't take no money from you. I don't even know you. I get food money from the state. If my job paid me more I wouldn't need food money. I got as much right as you do to relax and smoking relaxes me.
Where do you think the state gets their money from? You got it, the tax paying public in the state. It is your fault you never aspired to do better for a family you created. Find a better paying job. Oh you can't, Obama fixed that? We understand. Clown.

The money comes from cigarette taxis. We pay enough to pay for almost all of government. You should be happy we are here so you don't pay lots of taxis like we do. It is only right that I get money to buy food with. I don't like Obamacare because it costs too much. I have to pay almost $70.00 a month for coverage for me and my family. If non smokers would just kick in their fare share, I wouldn't have to pay anything for insurence. Its is greedy people like you who hurt hard workers like me You want to take away everything that I pay for.

This addiction nonsense is something control freaks want to believe, not something that is true. Anyone smoking tobacco for no matter how many years, even decades can cold turkey quit smoking with no aids, no propaganda from you. You pander addiction nonsense because you want people to believe they are victims. Yes, you're a pansy. I stopped smoking because of the various government's taxation and anti-tobacco mania. Just as predicted, the States and the Federal governments are in increasingly bad financial straights because of their control freak policies.
All scientific studies have shown unequivocally there is no bad health effects from second hand smoke. The largest study by the World Health Organization showed that children raised in homes with smoking parents are actually buffered against cancer statistically.
Actually, kids around second hand smoke are known to have lower IQ's and a higher rate of ear and upper respiratory infections. Children with asthma are especially at risk when exposed to second hand smoke.

You're a hoot....sponging off the taxpayers using obamacare as a smoker.$70 a month wouldn't cover the well care benefits....not even close. The taxes you spend on cigs probably don't exceed $300 a year. You're a troll.

Cigarette taxis where I live are $3.63 a pack. I smoke 2 packs a day. My wife smokes 1 and my oldest son smokers 1. That means my family is paying about $5300 a year in taxis. I bet you don't pay cloose to that amount in taxis. So quite complaining about my getting money back. I out also pay about $850 a year on top of that for health for my family/ I still have to pay $10 for a prescript. Asprin only costs like $1 a bottle so why does it cost ten times as much to make another pill? I have to buy advair for my youngest girl. If I didn't have to pay 10 bucks for that I could afford to refill it every time she runs out. For the money I pay, it should be free.

5300 a year in taxis is still not enough for you and your family to justify in smoking any where. I am set to propose ban ing smoking while driving.Make I'd it a DUI offense.

Bill, that you? I can't imagine there could be anyone in this same thread who would spell taxes the way you do.$5300 is a voluntary tax. You should have no reason to complain about it.

Asthma is a common condition for children of smokers. You should be ashamed. 850 a year in health insurance is a bargain especially when you have such a small copayment for an expensive prescription. No doubt taxpayers are footing the bill. I wish I only have to pay 5300 in taxes.

xxxrayted was responsible for the anti-lgbt comment, boo ya was responsible for the anti-abortion comment. They did not back each other up on them. Not on this thread.

Surely you must know by now that many folks do not stick with a 'party' line. Regardless of their positions, I am relieved to know some people will not be drug by the nose ring by their political party.

If you follow the advertising trail you should be able to see they are not seeking out a very bright population. Parents who smoke around their kids are at the very bottom of the food chain...and the cycle goes on.
