    Smokers may outlive you too. You are hating on a group of people for no other reason than you dislike thier habit. I am sure you have bad habits too.

    What race of people are you talking about?
    Probably white people since they make up the majority of welfare and food stamp recipients.

    Because you want to be laughed at?

    So you classify smoking as a bad habit.
    When one thinks of all possible bad habits I think smoking must be at the top that affects other people around it. Of course I guess one person's bad habit is another person's enjoyable hobby.

    This may be comparing apples to oranges but smoking has many attributes as abortion. I don't care for either one but who am I to tell someone else what to do with their bodies. Both of these activities have ardent supporters and ardent opposition foes.
    But I think most would agree we would all be better without either of these activities, it is how we achieve this that divide us.

    Smokers will likely NOT outlive me.

    Heavy drinkers will likely NOT outlive.

    Social drinkers may (according to a recent study) outlive me.

    These are facts.

    You are hating on a group of people for no other reason than you dislike thier habit.
    It's not about hate. It's about pity. I see them in the airports, in their little glass house, and I feel sorry for their families.

    Their children will have to spend more time caring for them than is normal.


    I am sure you have bad habits too.

    I said think about.

    I realize that most child services offices are overwhelmed with work to deal with every little instance of abuse. Especially long term abuse like smoking.

    You are gonna compare smokers rights to a womans right? And no I do not think we would all be better off without abortions or smoking.

    I do think the world would be better off without people trying to tell others what to do with their own bodies and am shocked that you went there. Mind your own biz.

    As for Disneyland ... are they in the habit of fining or citing guests who bring their own gum?
    The act of smoking puts a known carcinogen in the air for those around them to breath. I am completely supportive of the efforts of local and state governments (NOT FEDERAL) to handle this as they see fit. I have absolutely no sympathy for people who smoke those cancer sticks as they rarely show no sympathy for those whom they smoke around...
