    I should not laugh but this post makes me wanna say " lock up your kids, animals and lungs" cause the smokers are here and they mad. "

    Step Away From the Beach Folks! There are smokers coming. You really cannot stop those Full Flavor Marlboro smokers. They are the worse. They may jack up your lungs and try to blow some smoke your way. If this happens? Be prepared to Run!

    How do you feel about the banning of alcohol on some public beaches?
    In general, alcohol being banned in public (there are not many places you can walk down the street with a beer) is stupid. Drinking is a legal activity and should be allowed.

    That depends on whether or not you support the ban on smoking in bars, restaurants, etc.

    Las Vegas allows you to carry and drink on the street and it seems to work there. I know I appreciated going there, not being able to finish a drink, and sim0ly taking it with you. It fres up space in the restaurant for those who want to also eat. I would think that each locality should be able to mold a law which fits the culture and population of that particular community. I do nto think anybody has a right to drink on the street as it is a public place. But I have no objection to communities who want to allow it.

    One can debate about the health risks of smoking, 2nd hand smoking, and someone'a uncle who lived to 96 smoking Marlboro but for me I simply don't care.

    I just hate the smell of cig smoke. And someone will bring up about people wearing perfume and yes that is annoying but perfume does not permeate the size of an area as a cig will.

    For decades the non-smokers had to deal with smokers everywhere. Now the table has turned. Deal with it.
    So just because you hate the smell of smoke everybody in the U.S. should stop smoking?
    A bit selfish don't ya think?

    On the health issue, say if I was to say I don't like the smell or looks of overweight people and a law was passed to serve only healthy foods to everybody overweight that would stop a lot of high blood pressure, stroke,ect., would it not?

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.
    An excellant post sir.

    To often we forget the right to choose in this country.
    I respect your choice not to smoke.

    As I have said in a previous post,
    In many states one can not even have an establishment for smokers only.
    Now if nonsmokers can have an establishment for nonsmokers.
    Why can't smokers have an establishment for smokers only?

    Weak.
    Never said that everybody in the US should stop smoking did I. Full outright lie.

    You can smoke all you want on your private property or your vehicles. Areas where there are large number of people one should refrain from spreading there smoke everywhere. Hunting or camping where you are not butt cheek to butt cheek to everyone else you can smoke without disturbing others. What is the big problem?

    A bit selfish is a smoker sitting his fat ass on a beach and smoking up the air for everyone.

    The comparison of overweight people and smokers is weak. Apples and oranges and you know it.

    Tons of people emit emissions around lots of other people. Cars do it all the time, and there are terrible ones like those diesel trucks which spew black smoke everywhere. Should those be banned from the roads? It seems to me that you would support bans in restaurants and bars too, which is private property. I would say there is more valid argument for banning smoking (though I probably wouldn't agree with the ban) in public spaces such as parks or the beach than there is banning smoking in private establishments like a bar.

    First of all if you had bothered to read my post you would know the differance between an interogitive sentence and a declarative sentence.
    I simply ask a question ,how can a question be a lie???

    So you want to control the air to make sure nobody gets any smoke?
    In case you don't know the differance that is a question.

    If your goal in life is to make sure everybody is healthy you might want to start with the water, then there's pesticides.
    Then the all to present carbon monoxide.
    Ob some days you can not see the Hollywood sign from downtown L.A.
    Then there's the obiesity problem which has passed the smoker problem some time ago
    In case that don't keep you busy there is always smog,
    There isn't enough snokers in America to cause that, yet many cities have smog reports everyday posted with weather.

    What is a bit selfish is some nonsmoker sitting on his ass and blambing the world's health problems on smokers.
    If only we could get rid of smokers?
    What the air would be clear fish would not be poisoned, obiesity people wouldn't die from heart attacks. tere would be no smog, the water would be clear just to name a few?????
