What about smoking bans?

It has occurred to me that all these bans which are sweeping the nation (including smoking bans) may be unconstitutional. For instance, smoking bans are a property rights issue and not a health issue, as bars ans restaurants already had a choice to be smoke free or not, but then in came restrictive legislation, and took away the choice of business owners to decide what is economically right for their business. Lots of other bans out there too, such as trans fat bans. Legislating what we eat, drink or smoke, is not the business of government. What do you think?  (May 27, 2007 | post #1)

Ron Paul rocks Republican bigwigs

I hadn't heard of Ron Paul before and so thank you, everybody, for informing me. He surely has my vote too. I didn't even know that there was somebody in the running who actually stands up for the Constitution. What a concept!  (May 27, 2007 | post #221)

Suspect in murder of 9/11 hero kills himself in California

Having just read the article I don't see any mention of the suspect's name and so I wonder how it is concluded that he was gay or that the person he killed was gay. This isn't logical. Could somebody clue me in as to why both of these dead men are assumed to be homosexual?  (May 27, 2007 | post #13)

Man Charged With Attempted Murder of Huntsville Police Of...

Chain gangs worked well back in the 50's and I agree, that for an offense like this, they are warranted. This man, firstly is an illegal immigrant and secondly he wounded a police officer.  (May 26, 2007 | post #2)

Who sings "Amazing Grace" best?

I have CD with Lari White singing it which I think is the best ever, but I'd like to know what other folks' favorite artists are for this timeless song.  (May 26, 2007 | post #1)
