yeah, it's stupid

Sure, it's a stupid regulation. But we've got pretty much the same thing in Georgia now, which proves that power-mad nannies know no borders. They live and legislate in the South as well as the North.

The anti-smoking movement stopped being about public health a long time ago (if it ever was about health in the first place). It's become the convenient arena for the nanny state to run roughshod over individual liberties and private property rights.

Go ahead, you non-smokers. Support anti-smoking regulations because they don't affect YOU. Just don't be surprised when the nannies move on to something that DOES affect YOU next, because they WILL, just as surely as you can say "junk food." Idiots.

The older I get, the more convinced I am that we don't deserve what the Founding Fathers envisioned for this country. We have too many zealous nannies and too many ignorant sheeple among us. Combine the two and you get proof of one ugly fact.

We can't handle freedom.


The government will say, you can have only a small order of fries with that Big Mac. Only one small fry to a customer.

I guess the stupid politicians won't bother to read the latest World Health Organization report. Years of study and millions of taxpayer dollars led to the conclusion the the Second Hand Smoke Scare is just that, a scare. No health hazard at all... Didn't the average person of average intel already know that.

Ever think many of these zealous nannies and ignorant sheepie are just in need of a good lay?

Here's the thing...obesity is a very close second only behind tobacco use as the most common preventable cause of death. People don't like smoke because it smells bad. Well, frankly, so do people who are too big to be able to bathe effectively.

But dammit, what I do in MY OWN HOUSE and MY OWN CAR is MY OWN BUSINESS. I don't blow smoke in anyone's faces....not that I'm not tempted to sometimes. People need to get a life and stay out of mine.

I just don't like it when people smoke in a restaurant when I'm eating. But bars? Outside on the street? That is just dumb.
