    Meh, I feel the same way about car exhaust. Yet you buggers just keep on driving anyway.

    Can't get them online here. Surprisingly you can buy an AR-15 with an RPAL online here, cigarettes nope. I guess you might be able to import them form the U.S> or another province but no one wants to go through all that hassle.

    Psychosomatic. If it were an actual condition you have expired from car exhaust years ago.

    If you're that environmentally sensitive perfumes, deodorants, body sprays, and even farts are deadly to you. The public area might not be a good fit in that case.

    New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Monday proposed requiring that cigarettes be hidden from view in retail stores as a means to reduce smoking in what he said would be the first law of its kind in the United States.



    Bloomberg plans to introduce to the City Council on Wednesday two bills that would require retailers to keep cigarettes in a drawer, behind a curtain or in some other concealed location.

    Some retail trade groups and tobacco companies criticized the proposed display ban as an unnecessary burden.

    "These laws would protect New Yorkers, especially young and impressionable New Yorkers, from pricing, discounts and exposure to in-store displays that promote tobacco products," Bloomberg told a news conference at a city hospital.

    "Such displays suggest that smoking is a normal activity and they invite young people to experiment with tobacco. This is not a normal activity," he said.

    Stores would still be allowed to advertise and display pricing information but the actual tobacco products would only be visible during a sale or restocking.

    Under current federal and state laws, cigarettes must be accessible only to a store's cashiers, and in many city stores they are prominently stacked on a wall behind the cash register.

    The proposal would also increase penalties on stores that illegally resell cigarettes smuggled in from states with lower tobacco taxes, which Bloomberg said cost the city $30 million in lost tax revenue every year.

    And how do they stop it? Do they monitor your mail? Restrict your web access?

    No more sitting around campfires anymore, or car exhaust, or furnace fumes, or smoke from burning food. You don't like the smoke, move somewhere else. Your logic is faulted.

    Yeah that's why he describes himself as a Democrat.....this time round. Although I do think someone Pointed out on as to how he has ran under Republican, Independent, and now where he feels more comfortable. In the Tent of the Progressive Democrat.

    But that's alright.....he is saying you will like the way he thinks for you.
