    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    I support it. We've had this sort of thing going on here in Canada for a good 5 years now. I remember the day they passed it. It mandated the boxes be covered on the shelfs they'd be kept on.

    Just like this:

    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.

    This guy is something.....huh? Is he willing to give up all the money that is made off of Cigarettes? Ready to give up those taxes over cigarettes? He will decide for all New Yorkers.....huh? How can NYers put up with this guy? To top it off they give this POS a 3third term. First Salt in foods, then Sugary Drinks, and Now Cigarettes. What's Next Beer and Alcohols?
    Dictator of New York? haha...

    I love how illogical and downright stupid these authoritarians are.

    These clowns never stop to think that their idea of a "utopia" may not be a utopia to others. That maybe we have such a thing called FREEDOM... Did that authoritarian clown Bloomberg ever stop to think that maybe it was FREEDOM that built this country? did he ever stop to think that people came here so they could sell cigarettes or whatever they wanted to because they couldn't back home and make a profit doing it while reaping the rewards of their hard work?

    BoomBoom is a ****ing tyrant..... He thinks hes so goddamn smart yet treats the people of New York like children with his proposed laws.

    Oh yeah, he also has absolutely no idea about law or liberty considering the court will shoot this proposal down in two seconds (if it even passes) given the fact it violates the First Amendment not to mention numerous bylaws.

    Can't say I'm shocked tho.

    You better listen to him now. After all big daddy knows best.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
