This Heather is hilarious for an antismoker

http://www.onalaskalife.com/articles/2008/08/28/opinion/02betsingerlte.txt

If the comments I posted on this antismoking lady appears on that page, I will share em in my blog. But here's what i had to say within the groups.

*************************************

Me submitted comment. Dunno if it will get approved. But that B called Heather implied that the govt works only for the majority. I beg your F'in pardon, chick? You telling me the govt could care less about me since I'm in a minority race, AND I'm a smoker?

She oughta try telling those words to me in my face that the govt only cares about the majority. Last time I checked, I have the American right to vote as a Black person. Meaning those govt oficials you talked about? My behind played a role in putting em into their offices! (At least the US and IL state govt officials) My vote shouldn't count since I'm a minority, right honey?

And smokers should have the right to vote against every smoking ban proposal.

********************************

That comment was approved and here it is.

"The majority of the people in our great state are nonsmokers. And since nonsmokers are the majority of the population, it is up to the elected officials to stand up to do whats right for the majority of the state they work for."

I'm an African-American smoker, and this baby is implying the state works for nonsmokers only....they don't care about smokers.

The majority of the US are W people. But the last time I checked, govt officials work for people of ALL races. And yes, we Blacks AND we smokers DO make a difference in America by voting.

My point is this baby is making a HUGE mistake by implying that the govt only listens to the majority. If that's the real case, then I shouldn't vote in November since I come from a minority race.

And smokers SHOULD be allowed to vote on smoking ban proposals for that matter.

What's wrong with smokers-only businesses?

Yeah, I always wondered myself how come we can’t have "smokers-only" businesses in the same sense "Blacks-only" places used to be common before I was ever born.

I bet if smokers were given the same treatment Blacks/Women/Gays/Jews get (in the sense of it being illegal to deny me a job just cause I’m a Black person), then maybe smokers-only places would be acceptable. But last time I checked, it’s "legal" to deny smokers jobs, and it’s even legal to bully smokers.

Why would the US grant a group of smokers their own places when nonsmokers feel they have the right to treat smokers as their slaves? Well smokers are MONEY slaves in the US when you factor in the high-ass tobacco taxes that keep going up every month it seems like.

Of course, if more smokers switched to Native-made cigs like Blackhawk cigs, they wouldn’t be "money slaves" to the states anymore. The states would get no tobacco tax money from purchases of Native-made cigs!

Thangs still going well with my smoking lady

Yes, I'm still talking with my gf for almost 2 straight months. My mother talked to her once, and she's amazed we still friends at this point. What I'm amazed about is the gf still smoking only 3 -5 cigs per day. Especially with the nurse aide job she has (and not to mention being a single mom). She's a brave young lady for handling a job like that.

I do know if we move up to the next level in the fall, she might smoke more just from seeing and talking to me in person more often. She actually confessed to smoking close to a half of a pack of Newports a week ago. That's a lot for her, but it ain't a biggie to me.

She's gonna be tested as a smoker on the job when the weather starts to get colder and when smoking outside becomes a pain in the @$$. She can't smoke near hospital doors anyway. I'm amazed on how lil a lady can smoke per day especially afta smoking for 8 years in my gf's case.

Well, her small amount of cigs per day does prove that smoking ain't an addictive habit. She's lucky to get a job at a hospital, since hospitals are slowly starting to join the ranks of businesses not hiring smokers. Unless she lied about being a smoker on her interview. LOL!!!!
