    Whose the biggest whiner? The ones that state an obvious truth? Or the one that tries to get a legal act banned just because they don't like it?

    I'm not the one who went running to government, crying my eyes out about people making choices of what they can or cannot do on their own property.

    The drive by trolls don't actually answer anything. They just make insults and run off without contributing to the overall conversation.

    Ok here is your answer. Smokers are coming off like big whining crybabies here.

    I like a cold beer everyonce in awhile. There are beaches where alcohol beverages are banned but I can still go to that beach and have a good time without a temper tantrum. If I wanted to I could have a few drinks before going onto the beach and enjoy it all. It isn't the end of the world not having a cold one in my hand while sitting on the beach.

    The ban will encompass pedestrian areas such as the one in Times Square. The Parks Department will be empowered with imposing fines under $100, but the ban will be mostly self-enforced. By raising awareness about non-smoking areas in the city councillors who voted for the ban are relying on the public to be vigilant about smokers breaking the law by informing them that it is illegal to smoke in these public areas. Police will not be enforcing the anti-smoking law.

    lol really? the councillors are relying on the public to inform others that it is illegal to smoke in these public areas because the police won't be enforcing this new law?

    good luck with that.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    It's the other way around. The crying is coming from people who don't want the choice. I don't even smoke, can't stand it. But I'm not willing to tell a property owner that they can't allow a legal activity on their property because some jerkwad over there is crying about smoke. As for outside, for the love of **** have we become the French in this country? Pissing and moaning about everything. "Oh there's a smoker over there" *insert pretend coughing* "Don't they know how icky that is...I'm going to go cry to government till they make a law cause heaven forbid I walk my fat ass 15 feet that way!" It's just crying, the whole way. I'd rather allow the choice and deal with the consequences of people being free, then to run to government every time someone offends one of my senses clamoring for another law.

    I noticed how you carefully ignored my comment about banning of alcohol on some beaches in that same post.
    How do you feel about the banning of alcohol on some public beaches?
    I imagine you have a good idea why alcohol got banned. Some people could go to the beach and have a beer and be respectful of others. But it was that element who littered broken bottles and became alcohol tough that caused the banning.

    But like drinkers you get that same element of smokers who littered the beach with the cig butts and had no problem sitting their fat asses down in the middle of non smokers and blowing smoke everywhere.

    I am not against someone smoking on their private property. Go for it.

    Banned because of broken glass. That's a far cry from banning something just because you don't like it. Not even in the same league.

    Ya know I don't really mind those that B**** about it for health reasons, at least they have a semi-valid reason (only "semi" because the actual effects of SHS are far and away overblown), but when they do so just because they don't like it? That's nothing more than pure unadulterated BS.
