    They used to do that back in the good old days as well.

    Is that okay with you?
    But a fetus is not a "person" until birth, so you can drink and smoke and use drugs up until that point while pregnant.

    No. I don't advocate women smoking while pregnant. However, I refer to my wife's doctor's advice during her first pregnancy.
    "If it is causing too much stress to quit, then it is better for the baby for you to continue smoking"
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Wow. Her doctor wouldn't have happened to be this guy, would he?

    No... It was some female who nearly passed out during the C-Section because of her own blood sugar levels.......

    You thinks it's perfectly safe, 100% harmless, and not in the least bit ignorant or unintelligent to strap a small child into a car seat, get in the car, and light up a cigarette or two while driving around.

    You've done this. You do this. You'll continue to do it in the future.
    Strapping your kid in the car and hurling your car down the road at 55 mph is far more dangerous than smoking. Life is full of dangers. Life is full of dangers. Do we really need the government to manage every bit of danger we introduce into society? I don’t advocate smoking around anyone. I don’t smoke, and if I did I wouldn’t do it in the car with my kids present. I’d like to think people are conscientious enough to do the same. But some aren’t. Who are you or I or the government to dictate how parents behave around their kids? With every little thing we see wrong in our society, instead of trying to collectively solve that problem, we look towards the government to fix it. The result is it gets more broken. I don’t want people going to jail or being fined for doing something as silly and stupid as smoking when their kids are around simply because an outraged few and our government have decided it for us.

    At the turn of the new year it’s reported that 40,000 new laws went into effect. 40,000! I can’t even fathom what all these could possibly be, but I think this indicates how our government is aimed at managing nearly every aspect of our lives, and how this country have grown to expect this. Little chunks at a time our liberties dwindle away.

    Because life is full of dangers doesn't seem to justify an unnecessary danger to me.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Is there such thing as a necessary danger?

    Yes. Safety, as defined as the absence of risk, is unattainable; therefore we can only seek to minimize risk - not eliminate it. Even if you consider yourself as being exactly of median intelligence then half of the drivers that you share the roadway with are dumber than you are - that is a necessary risk.

    Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

    That's because when you're a smoker your sense of smell is pretty thoroughly screwed. Fortunately, the effects aren't permanent: after quitting your sense of smell, with particular emphasis on your ability to smell cigarette smoke, returns with a vengeance.

    Now, I'm not saying this to you, exactly, since it's pretty obvious you're just trolling at this point. But for any smokers who actually believe opening the windows work, well, it doesn't.
