    No ****. My allergic reaction cause migraines and can put me out of commission for days.

    Some allergic reactions can actually kill people.

    Yep, right along with the Welfare Queens and the absurdly obese...

    As for the "captive children" bit? My dads father smoked since before my dad was born. My dad smokes and has since I was born. (I'm 35 and my dad is 66) Neither one of them had/has lung cancer. Neither do I. I left some links about the EPA and their "study" in my last post...I'd suggest ya read it before ya believe all the hype about second hand smoke.
    Second-hand smoke can lead to several childhood resperatory problems. It isn't 100%, but there is definately a link. My father was a heavy smoker and while I wasn't affected so much (I spent less time at home as a child) it did seriously affect my younger brother. He had (and still has) significant respiratory problems due to the exposure...

    Second hand smoke has, at best, negligible effects to your health.
    It's odor may offend you but it doesn't effect your health.

    No I seriously want these things banned.
    Anti smokers have gone from reasonable to militant.
    I want motorcycles with engines bigger than 250cc, car stereos that go louder than the listeners ear, bicycles on roads, alcohol, obese people and many other things banned or taxed at rates that are equal to what smokers have to pay.

    The tears would be gigantic.

Anyone with any sense of self-responsibility would take that action and blame no one but themselves.

    Sorry, I have no sympathy for people that go to a smoking restaurant and then have the nerve to ***ch about it. If you can't accept your own responsibility to yourself then you deserve to be ignored.
    Where did I say anything about a restaurant? I was referring to public spaces... there are many of them that don't include restaurants...

    BTW, in the country where I live, there is no such thing as a "smoking restaurant" anymore...

    Smokers pay for their share of taxes to enjoy that public space.
    Don't like it go somewhere away from their smoke.

    I used to have your ilk come down my old country road and not get the heck out of the way.

    I'd so love you banners to get a taste of your own medicine.
    Funny... you know roads predate the existance of automobiles... and not everyone who ride a bike is always using it for recreation... for some people, it is also transportation... and a much cleaner one then you are using... . and FYI, if it is safe for me to do so, I DO get out of the way of motorists if I know there are there, but commonly the reason I can't safely get out of the way is because of illegal parking by CARS!!!

    Dude, your slow speed is more likely the cause of car accidents than a car going fast.
    You guys should totally be banned from roads without sidewalks or bike lanes.

    A plague on humanity I tell yea.

    A tag tax wouldn't be a bad idea either.
