    Once again typical pompous smoker attitude. Thinking limiting your smoking cigs to the pain that the Jewish population went through during WWII is pathetic.

    Dammit, I am trying hard not to make an off-colour joke here.

    Or instead of being a Holocaust reference. How about the fact the Nazi's control every aspect of German Society during there time in power.

    And right on time here comes the old "if they ban heroin they will next want to ban ice tea" argument.

    A ban on smoking at a public land such as a beach or park is not the death penalty. One could go sit in their private car and light one up then after having his fix return to the beach. Can't you people go 2 hours without a cig?

    Some smokers are courteous and don't litter everywhere but unfortunately they are the minority.
    Just as they ban glass containers from the beach as a minority is irresponsible and bust them on the ground. Same thing with smokers where the minority as ruined it for the rest of you.

    The attitude of many smokers and their apologists on this thread is the reason there has been such a backlash. Learn to be reasonable and accomodate or the backlash will continue...
    How about the non-smokers learn to be friendly and filled with understanding rather than hate towards smokers? This land is your land and this land is my land. Respect goes both ways and again: you do not OWN a public beach so if my smoking fine ass cannot find a non-crowded spot? I have as much right to sit beside your "feel so entitled" ass as the next person. Smoker or not.

    Sorry, but you do not have the right to sit next to me on the beach and spread your cancer-causing pollutants to me and my children. Perfectly legal products are regularly prohibited from public areas in the interests of protecting the rights of all and make them child-friendly. How many localities ban intoxicating beverages from public places, including beaches. Never hear any outcry about that... but touch smoking... wow, that is such a sacred cow... give me a break... if you can't go without our tobacco fix, then don't go to where there will be other people outside trying to enjoy themselves without the presense of buttheads...

    I USED to try to be understanding of smokers, but I have had too many experiences with butthead cancer stick addicts to be understanding of them any longer... why don't buttheads try to be understanding of the MAJORITY who don't want cancer sticks and their emmissions shoved in their faces?

    Well as long as it is a public beach and there are no laws that prohibit public smoking? Then yep: got every right to sit next to you and your kiddos. Like I said before I try my best to find a spot so I do not bother anybody but if that happened to be a crowded beach that day? Well tough cookies for you and your kids as I have as much right to enjoy that beach as you and you are free to move away from me. I am NOT stopping ya.

    I also feel you should be able to drink intoxicating beverages on a beach as long as they are in a cup and no open beer cans. I guess maybe the smokers and/or drinkers need to just go to only adult beach but even some of those have outlawd both so that sucks.

    Why don;t the smoking nazis just understand that they can move on along til they find an area where there is no smokers.

    You are the minority. Your days of lighting up without regard to anyone else are ending. For decades smokers had that right but those days are over. I can remember when patients were allowed to smoke in their hospital bed. I suppose your probably bitch about not being able to smoke in a hospital too.
    But nobody cares about your whining.

    We are not moving for you anymore.

    Well you seem to care enough to reply and your little comment about my not having reguard for others is wrong. Can you not follow my posts as have said I go out of my way to try to be a nice smoker and consider others but it works both ways.

    Anyways since you could care less about smokers rights? Do not come crying to DP when some of your rights are taken away as I will feel nothing for you.

    I frankly don't need your feelings. It actually creeps me out.
