    Nothing tastes quite as repugnant as freshly sliced and sauteed socialism.

    Im glad that this government is taking it into its own hands to tell people what they can and cannot do because it may not be good for them.

    I can't stand when the gov steeps in and tells me what I can and can't do.
    Smoking however is one of the few things I don't mind them doing something about.

    I could care less if the person smoking dies, but please leave me out of it. oh wait.... you can't as with anyone else around the smoker.

    I can't STAND that shit. Another reason I'm not a big go to the bar kinda person, My clothes will stink so bad that my car will smell for days to come.

    The way it sounds to me is they are only going to allow people to smoke INSIDE the house. Everyone i know simply steps outside to smoke. Thats the part I dont understand is if someone wants to stand in there own yard and smoke how does that affect anyone else? Something that happened here in Washington is a 50 foot law. You have to remain 50 feet from all windows that open, doors and ventilation systems. Thats fine with me, exept in the situations where you end up standing on the sidewalk and everyone has to walk right past you any ways.

    This kind of shit pisses me off and scares me at the same time. Who the fuck do they think they are passing laws making it so people can't smoke on there own property let alone in there car or on the street? I can see how second hand smoke can affect someone if they are always surrounded by it, like if you work at a bowling alley, or a bar but that is why WA has laws that make it so you can't smoke inside public places, and you have to be x amount of feet from entrances, open windows, etc. I mean if your smoking on the street and little johnny rides past on his bike he is not going to contract lung cancer and die you have to be surrounded by that shit for long periods of time. I personaly am not a smoker nor do I live in Cali but it has me wondering what is next?

    I'd feel CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZY!!!!

    That aside, I'm cool with my habit. If I go out to dinner with my non-smoking buddies, I'll sit in the non-smoking area. If I feel the need to fire one up, I'll take a quick trip to the bar. I don't smoke around my kids or anyone else's kids. That's out of respect for the people around me.

    All I ask is that you let me enjoy my habit, out of respect for me.

    They tried to ban smoking in your car in NJ, they said it causes too many accidents.. But it failed trying to pass. I agree with what everyone is saying about being courteious to others, but that ban is being a little overkill.

    Keene New Hampshire doesn't allow smoking behind the wheel within town limits - as well as drinking (Drinking ANYTHING).

    There are towns in Colorado that don't allow smoking outdoors becuase of fire hazards. They also don't allow it in the car becuase of people's tendencies to flick it out the window.

    It fucking irritates me when a smoker throws their cig out the window. I always feel like having a nasty ash tray on hand. walking up to the car window and dumping it in and then asking them how they like it litering now.

    YES. I hate it when people litter in general, like they are the only one that has to live in this world. I am by no means a tree huggin hippie. But people should be courteous for no other reason that because it is virtuous to be courteous, and do us all a favor, and put trash in its place, cig butts included.
    I hate it when my coworkers go out for a smoke break every ten minutes, and then reek up the store with their smoky nastiness while they work. Working at a restaurant, it's not good for business, and people are less likely to come back after being served by someone that smells like an ashtray. By proxy, it hurts my cashflow, so it is a personal thing. I know a lot of smokers that are really cool, and it doesn't bother me when they smoke, because they acknowledge that they are not the only people in the world, and they acknowledge that it smells, and that not all people like the smell of ashes.
    I could care less if people smoke, but don't let it affect my lifestyle. That goes for anything. If the world were more polite, we wouldn't have anti-anything laws.

    I swear that's what they make street sweepers for. Damn those smokers for helping to give a city employee a steady job with job security!

    ;)

    I could care less, Allen county is proposing an indoor smoking ban here in town but New Haven is 100% planning on opting out of this new law.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Ft Wayne killed it too... of course our mayor is more concerned of taking money from the police officers pockets for gas money and then giving himself a 30k a year raise for the last year of his term.

    I think anytime a non smoker has a random guy come up to them with a cig in their hand I think we the nonsmokers should drop our pants and take a major dump right next to them and wave the shit smell over them maybe even wipe some shit on their clothes.

    Then we can say "how do you like dem apples ya asshole"

    Anyone willing to try it out?
