    Cost vs benefit. Hysteria and emotional intimidation vs. actual real risk?

    Really? That's your argument. "Show/tell me your problems."

    I do have asthma and severe sinus problems but there isn't much of a chance of me proving that those were caused by that second hand smoke exposure as a child. But, as a child, I did suffer having to breathe in that smoke and smelling like their smoke while at school. That is not exactly pleasant for a child and easily preventable with just a little inconvenience to a smoking parent (or other adult around the child).

    say no or retract your foolish post
    I never said car fumes don't pose any medicinal problems.

    What, are you saying cigarette fumes and car exhaust are exactly the same?

    What were you saying about foolish posts, Bubba?

    I repeat myself. I also repeat that I have nothing but contempt for those who think they have a high-ground and can dictate acceptable behavior to others. Seriously, these people make me sick!

    I will dictate what is acceptable behavior only if your behavior is intentionally or neglectfully harming others who have no choice but to be in that harmful situation, i.e. children.

    Well, according to your post you quoted, you'll have to be upset with every person because every person thinks they have the right to dictate to others what is right and what is wrong. If they didn't, we'd follow absolutely no laws, right?

    That aside, do you or do you not think it's alright to have children in the back seat, with the windows up, while smoking? Let's refine this a bit and say the driver wants tosmoke a whole pack. Do you have no problem with that?

    Oh bull****. Calm down and think. You support plenty of laws that forbid parents, including you, from doing all kinds of evil, harmful things to their children.

    This discussion is simply about whether smoking should be one of those things. Stop acting like you oppose all laws whatsoever. You don't, and neither does anyone else.

    Nobody wants to let parents do anything they want. Nobody wants to tell parents how to do every little thing. Throwing those extremes around doesn't add to the debate.

    Another gem of what I find to be common sense.
