2008 is also the year of the next Presidential election. This country needs a Black President. I wouldn't mind seeing a woman President. But Hillary Clinton wants to have a nationwide smoking ban from what I heard about her. O'Bama is in favor of smoking bans as an EX-smoker.
If I was President of the United States, I'd make ALL smoking bans illegal. Including getting rid of outdoor smoking bans. Whateva happened to making both sides happy? It should be the business owner's decision as to whetha or not he/she wants to allow smoking. I'd bring back smoking sections/non-smoking sections in restaurants.
I'd make it illegal to keep raising tobacco taxes. Smokers shouldn't be forced to fund thangs like the SCHIP. I wouldn't mind seeing higher fast food taxes though.
I'd require every building to have adequate ventilation. If nonsmokers are still gonna complain about smelling smoke in the nonsmoking area, maybe they can ask for a table that's far away from the smoking section. Or maybe they can avoid going to the restaurant. I'm sure that restaurant doesn't need money from someone who is gona snitch about smelling smoke.
If I was President, I'd force all employers to interview ALL of their applicants before the employers make a final decision on who to hire. Most of the time when a poor person applies for a job, he/she will be lucky to get a reply period. Even when the employer hires someone else, that otha applicant will be lucky to even get a negative reply.
We also need to give the poor more job opportunities. If people wonder why so many poor people are involved in getting money illegally, maybe it has somethang to do with the fact those poor people can't get hired. Getting money illegally is wrong 100 percent. But I do understand a bro or sis doing whateva the heck it takes to make a living (if he/she can't get hired).
If America had more jobs out here (and if employers were more willing to hire poor people), you would see a decrease in criminals.
Speaking of those who break laws in order to make it out here, I'd make it illegal for a cop to search any smoker for no valid reason. Because I know searching a bro's body while he's smoking a cig is wrong. I can see searching a bro smoking a cig if the cop suspects him to be involved in a case the cop is investigating. But I should be allowed to make a cop pay for searching an innocent smoker like me. Especially if that cop touches any part of my body while searching me. I'd do the same exact thang if an anti tried touching me too.
Bush is a good example of the type of President we don't need. He denied on national TV that he hates Blacks during the Katrina after math in '05. But I saw othawise when he waited for several days to pass before sending those brothas and sistas help at all in Nawlins.
I guess one negative of having a Black President is he would need bodyguards to protect him from assassination attempts. And if I was president, I'd have TWO evil groups having a deep interest in killing me. Antis would probably love to see a President like me killed so they can take over Americans' lives again. But I got bad news for those a-holes....I'm nto actually running for President!
My goal is to bring back a prosmoking USA where antismoking hardly exists. It's crazy that smokers get more negativity than even gays and gay marriages!
