    Those are called STANDARDS, however smoking is LEGAL hence you cannot discriminate against an individual partaking in a LEGAL activity - THAT is discrimination.

    The government banning smoking in certain places is DISCRIMINATION...

    I know it's too complicated for you to understand.

    You like every progressive want's your opinion to be law or factual hence everyone else is wrong and the law only works for you not against you.
    It's not too complicated, you're just making up definitions as you go.

    You can smoke, just not in certain public buildings. It's an air quality standard.

    Smoking bans would survive an equal protection challenge because they are rationally related to a legitimate state interest.

    but feel free to put your money where your mouth is. Hire a lawyer and challenge a smoking ban on equal protection grounds.

    I like how you believe I am the one deciding how equal protection works to suit my beliefs. I'm not the one who decided this, dude. The Supreme Court did.

    Haha.... they would only stand up because you want them to.

    Smoking bans are discriminatory.......

    I could care less anyways because everywhere I go I can smoke but that still doesn't change how I feel about this topic...

    I feel the same way about calories in food products..

    I have to eat at least 10,000 calories a day to keep my weight up because I have a hyper thyroid? yet the Fat Nazi's make that damn near impossible.

    So basically I have to eat butter because progressives are obsessed with fat people and want to ban this and that that is high in calories...

    You people don't think before you act...

    Do you really think I enjoy shoving my face with low calorie food?

    Well, they say you can elad a horse to water, but can't make him drink. I am going to show you some water. What you do to it is up to you.

    Rational Basis | Wex Legal Dictionary / Encyclopedia | LII / Legal Information Institute

    Rational basis review is a test used in some contexts to determine a law's constitutionality. To pass rational basis review, the challenged law must be rationally related to a legitimate government interest. Rational basis is the most lenient form of judicial review, as both strict scrutiny and intermediate scrutiny are considered more stringent. Rational basis review is generally used when in cases where no fundamental rights or suspect classifications are at issue.
    Notice that it does not say the government cannot discriminate(It can and does). It explains what areas the government can discriminate in. Areas where the state has a legitimate interest in such discrimination, such as age requirements, and perfectly legal under the constitution. Now you know a little bit about our constitution!

    We can play the discrimination game all damn day long...
    You don't understand the law and if you blow smoke in the face of progressives you will find yourself on the sidewalk.

    No, because the Supreme Court has set up particular mechanisms set up to decide these things. This isn't arbitrary, dude, and sticking your head in the sand doesn't make that fact go away. But you don't want to even acknowledge those mechanisms.

    yet the Fat Nazi's make that damn near impossible.
    Are you seriously trying to tell me that eating too many calories in the United States is difficult? That is...****ing comical. We subsidize corn growing so much that food companies shove corn syrup into everything. It's in bread. You can get 64 oz soft drinks at gas stations for like a dollar. (which is like 800 calories by itself) One ****ing city institutes a big soda ban and now it's impossible to get fat?

    I can use your logic against your ****ed up tyrannical bans...
    Nope. That isn't how the law works.

    Levels of scrutiny. What the law is in place and how it affects those people is only a small part of it. In fact, how it discriminates is a small part of it only. The major part of the argument is going to be what reasoning the government has for the law being in place, what specific state interest does this law further, if any.

    I love when you make posts that prove you are unaware of how things work and what the facts are, it cracks me up

    please add precedent to the list

    if you disagree PLEASE by all means simply show how equal rights on marriage precedents FACTUALLY relates to the fantasy world you are talking about
