    That was not a comparison, it was an example. This was abundantly clear to everyone but you.

    So what? My point was even if you are healthy and do everything like Kevin, or the Grape Nuts runner who had a heart attack, you are going to die.

    The anti smoking crowed seems to think somehow they are immune to premature death. It is abundantly clear you are not.

    Then don't come near us. Simple. It is a choice that you have, whether you want to admit it or not.

    The average cost of a pack of cigs will continue to spiral upward from $5 a pack. Smoking two packs a day costs them $3,200 a year now.
    In NYC a pack of cigs is now $11!

    And so it goes. But as I have said you can smoke all you want in your homes and cars but keep that crap out of my air.
    Your air?
    I did not know air could be posessed.

    If it is as you say "your air" do something about the smog, the carbon monoxide, and oh yeah sulfer, just to name a few.

    Over the top much?
    A bit far if you ask me.

    Of course I could quote the people that did smoke, maybe just some of them.
    John F. Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, Dwight Eiesonhower, George Patton. Einstien, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King jr..
    All bad addicts, all graet men.

    It is you and yours that should stay away from us. \

    There has always been nonsmoking resturants but you guys wanted all resturants to be nonsmoking.

    There can be nonsmoking areas but you guys want all areas to be nonsmoking

    Even bars and outof the way rundown bars where no health freak would go to are nonsmoking places.

    Why nobody that cares abut their health would go there anyway.

    And what about these greasy spoons where all they serve is greasy foods that's considered nonsmoking too.
    Even though nonsmokers don't go there.

    This isn't about health or what's good for the American people this is about power and control.
    In short screw the individuals rights or the nonconformist you agree with us. it's the new law.

    Well, I for one don't lay down for nobody so be healthy eat salads, drink bottled water only, no caffine, no nicotine,no fried foods, no booz, might want to stay away from classic rock music r anything strenuous like sex, and be happy.

    I like a good smoke, a good cup of coffee,a thick steak, rock music and sex.
    I quit drinking cause it was my choice nobody made it for me.

    Good post over all. Just wanted to say that the part I quoted here reminds me of Demolition Man with Sandra Bullock and Stallone. Great movie with a damn good moral to the story.

    Likwise, a good post from you as well.

    I can't believe I forgot the scene from Demolition Man, as many times as I've watched it.

    I knew there was something familiar about that line when I wrote it. lol.

    You were making it in response to the other examples... that smacks of a comparison in this context...

    I never said I was immune to premature death, but my ability to fight back against a nasty virus is far better than that of the overwhelming majority of people due to my lifestyle, especially smokers...

    My problem is generally when smokers come near me! You want to smoke, do it away from the rest of us and don't come next to me and light up. Smokers are amongst the most inconsiderate, irresponsible people on earth, but that is your right. It is NOT your right to subject the rest of us to your poisonous lifestyle...
