    Why not?

    Banning people sounds like fun. Oh yeah we call that a purge - still sounds like fun.

    It no longer surprises me of what slithers out from underneath the Democrat tent now days. Be it Michale Bloomberg, Nancy Pelosi, David Duke, even Barack Obama.

    BTW: Bloomberg and Duke were both life long Democrats who changed their political party registration thinking it would help them get elected.

    The thing I hate about cigarettes and smokers is that when they're in front of you at the market, it always slows things down when the checker has to look for their special brand on the wall or behind the counter. The smoker points and calls out the brand name several times while the checker looks around. Also, I've noticed a lot of smokers like to pay with change, pennies, nickels, dimes and lint.... The checker has to stop and count out $4 worth of dirty change and then tell the smoker, he's short 30 cents. It's at that point the smoker whips out a credit card... Which usually doesn't work either.

    You mean the self-made billionaire, that Michael Bloomberg? The billionaire who finances his own campaigns so he doesn't own anyone any political favors?

    Bloomberg is one of the most intelligent, respected, and successful people in America.

    Just like this:

    Cigarette display ban begins in Quebec, Ontario - Canada - CBC News
    OK so what affect has it had on people smoking? None I bet.

    Yup, that guy.

    Respected? He's currently one of the most laughed at people in America.

    I don't understand what this will do.

    A smoker buys cigarettes because his body is asking for the nicotine. He doesn't care where they are kept.

    I don't see the point.

    Has anybody ever seen cigarettes in a store and thought that you wanted to try them? I don't think so.

    Well his intelligence is questionable, but I don't think there is even a debate about whether he is respected in politics.

    Think about Donald Trump, he has been incredibly successful and is largely respected in business, but he is viewed as a joke when he steps into the political arena. If success as a businessman was all that mattered, Trump might have been able to run in and even win the 2012 election.
