    The fine would go towards subsidizing health care... that was my thought at least. Maybe the smoker also has to get in a program to quit, like alcoholics sometimes are too?

    Because you don't like something, you think it is okay that the government enforce a rule that doesn't make a victim of you, saying someone can't do something you don't like using the threat of imprisonment and the use of the full force of government power to satisfy your dislike?

    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.

    Sir, are you aware it is illegal to smoke in a car with an eight year old.

    Don't worry officer, the kid is nine.

    Sorry to have stopped you, have a good day then.
    And that is why this law is stupid.

    I don't believe that's the reason I gave. Higlighting the to me portion suggests you are not following the meaning of the sentence. The reason would risk, health risk, danger, and has nothing to do with my like or dislike.

    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.

See, there's a reason anecdotal evidence isn't a good source for scientific arguments: it's patchy, undisciplined, and your tiny uninvestigated experience in your contained world may have little to do with the whole picture.


    Your position in this thread amounts to nothing more than pseudoscience at best, and straight up science denialism at worst (though it looks like a mixture of the two). It's the reliance on anecdotal evidence combined with your distrust of science shown in post 583 that make parents refuse to vaccinate their children.


    Truthfully, I am very leery of all the vaccinations that are required these days for babies..Too much, too soon IMO..... And the questions about autism still hang in the air....One would also have to question who is funding these studies...Is it the pharmaceutical companies? I am just not that trusting of a person I guess..... Am definitely against government intervention in people's lives...

    Uneducated my ass... Did you check out any of the websites that I listed? To not do so is to remain uninformed...
