Vaping ecigs is stupid. Still sucking hot, toxic gasses into your lungs and still expecting us to stand by and inhale what is left over. Stay outside where you belong.

After all the scientific studies showing second hand smoke has no harmful effects on people, control freaks oppose water vapor. It makes no sense. Instead, people should be repealing the laws about smoking in airplanes, restaurants and elsewhere.

I ate a dozen pickled eggs and drank a six pack of Miller beer. Would you like to shove your nose up my ass and inhale my farts. After all, farts are just water vapor, too.

Since you are an addict, we expect you to believe that second hand smoke is harmless. Get a clue. The rest of the world does not agree with you. Go stand outside by the dumpster with the rats and smoke. At least until we determine you are harming the rats.

You sound like an expert on "making no sense". I bet you let your dog lick your face after he has licked his "D" and "B's" or she her "C".

It is not freedoms being taken away- it is meeting the demands of society., As a society, we are no longer willing to tolerate the actions of a few nicotine addicts that put the rest of us at risk. You GAVE UP your freedom when you sucked on that butt and became addicted to nicotine. You did so WILLINGLY. Now, your life is so CONTROLLED (as in slavery) by nicotine that you cannot imagine going out for a meal without having a cigarette. THAT truly is sad. You will most likely die as a result of your addiction, and yet here you are taking up for it. Smoking during pregnancies kills babies. Smoking around an infant kills babies. Yet smokers are such vile, selfish individuals that they keep on smoking and keep on killing just because they need that next fix. Smokers are no better than heroin addicts. Get used to more restrictions on you smoking and higher taxes on your smoking because asking you to be responsible just has not worked. You need to remember that WE are the government and that non-smokers are a substantial majority and at this time and point could care less about a few whiny assed smokers.

Smoking is smoking. PERIOD. It is actually quite simple. Sucking hot, toxic gasses into your lungs is not natural and is moronic.

You must be another one of those filthy nicotine addicts who is so willing to kill babies. Scumbags by any other name. Of as little use to society as a stepped on dog turd. Stinks like hell and is hard to get rid of.

Most of these smokers are low enough that they would do it for the dog if someone told them there was a cigarette in it for them.

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.

Believe in Santa Claus for all I care. The majority (the non smokers) think that second hand smoke is deadly. I am just thankful I was smart enough not to be a pu$$y and buy into Big Tobacco's lies like you do. You are an unpaid shill for tobacco. If smokers were not so addicted, it really would not matter to them whether or not they had to go through a half hour meal without having a cigarette and shudder at the thought of walking 100 feet to get outside the door and have a cigarette there. I have seen smokers outside of Walmart (Walmart employees) huddled on the side of the building out in the middle of an ice storm having a cigarette. Now THAT Is addiction. Bunch of dumbasses.

Pickled red herring would be appropriate in your example, unless of course chicago has banned farting indoors as well........

E-cigs put the rest of us at risk?

Is there actual proof of that?

You seem to think that we are going to roll back the regulations that we have put into place that protect us. There is absolutely NO proof that e-cigs are harmless to non users. NONE. As in NADA, ZIP, ZILCH. It is not up to us to prove they are harmful. It is up to you to prove that they are harmless. We are not moved by the plight of a bunch of weak willed nicotine addicts who would have us believe that second hand smoke is harmless despite all of the evidence to the contrary and then these same selfish people want us to believe the same inane arguments about e-cigs. If you are so addicted to nicotine that you cannot go out without having to have a fix, say in the middle of dinner, then just stay at home and ponder what depths you have gone to in order to meet the demands of your addiction.

In other words, no you have no proof, just as I thought.

BTW, I'm not a smoker.......
