Like I said, piss and moan to your hearts content.See the idea is to stop something from coming into your/my area before it gets there. How is this done? By pointing it out when it happens in other areas and by showing how it could affect a person personally.
Are you in New York?In this case the person is me.
So did pissing and moaning about how the law can affect a person personally prevent it? Probably not, since all the pissing and moaning around here about those bans didn't do anything to stop it from coming here to Illinois.Use to be my state didn't have laws against smoking in private establishments. Washington State did though. Guess what...we now have a law against smoking in private establishments.
That's why I suggest a more effective method.
False. Using personal experience can be a legitimate debate tactic, when personal experience is relevant, but lying is never a legitimate debate tactic. If someone claims something affects them when it doesn't, they are lying.Applying something to oneself is a perfectly legitimate debate tactic.
