must be rough being you

I'm sorry, but I don't feel a lot of sympathy for her. She is the kind of neurotic, whining shitass--- and constant complainer--- who sets the standards for "freedom" today. Anybody this got-dam delicate needs to be weeded out of the gene pool for the good of the human race.

Diana Woodbury, a violinist and dancer, won't perform in casinos or other venues that allow smoking.

"It would kill me," said Woodbury, who lives in South Lake Tahoe. "I have asthma and bronchitis, and when I get around smoke, I get pains in my chest."

Even though most casino showrooms no longer allow smoking, Woodbury said the smoke that wafts in from the main casino floor is enough to make her ill. "If I walk past a smoker, within minutes, I can't breathe. I have to use an inhaler," she said.

She's obviously a rocket scientist, too, despite her delicate health, because she knows a lot more about science that I do: Woodbury is adamant in her view about the dangers of secondhand smoke. "For every eight smokers that die of smoking, they take one nonsmoker with them."

Got-dam! Who knew THAT "fact," and where did she find it?

That bitch needs her inhaler stuck up her ass. I'm sorry, people, but if THIS woman is allowed to set the standards for EVERYBODY's behavior, we're in a world of hurt.

But she can do it today. She has a "right" to.


"For every eight smokers that die of smoking, they take one nonsmoker with them."

But ... but ... but I thought secondhand smoke was supposed to be deadlier than firsthand! Because firsthand smokers have those filters!

My whole concept of smoking has been shaken. I need to go lie down.

I detest cigarette smoke, it burns my eyes. I won't go into a VFW (Life Member) or Legion because of the dense smoke. Same with bars.

Just because this woman has health issues, is not a RIGHT to infringe on personal liberty.

However, the State can't take charge in all situations, and deny people the right to live their own way. I know they try, but enough is enough.

I don't like smoke, so I deal with it. So should she. Leave the rest of us alone!

A recent World Health Organization report (which the crazies in the media won't print or talk about) shows that all of the hype about second hand smoke was just that , hype. No health problems can be blamed on second hand smoke. If the nut says that walking near second hand smoke causes her to use an inhaler, there is only one answer, she is a physco, addicted to the inhaler and uses it as a crutch to support her personal failures.

"For every eight smokers that die of smoking, they take one nonsmoker with them."

This one statement alone is almost enough to make me start smoking again.
