If you smoke Winston Lights (the BT brand dat tasted rich and a lil strong for a light cig to me), you might be interested in trying Kick Premium Lights. They taste more like Winston Lights than Marlboro Lights to me!
Dis is actually the first time in a good while I tried smoking regular-flavored cigs at all. And Kick Premium Lights is one regular light brand I wouldn't mind smoking again.
I'm sure the lady speaking in dis editorial is a nonsmoker. I have a perfect solution for dis antismnoking chick. Why don't you and your kids stay home? Or go to a park where the ban IS being enforced?
As Fked up as she sounds in dis article about smokers not caring about otha folks' health and sh!t, I'm sorry if you hate seeing smokers ignore a park smoking ban. Last time I checked, the smokers in my area are no different. I've seen smokers ignore a STATE smoking ban by smoking inside pedways towards train stations late at night.
And if ignoring smoking bans makes me a law-breaker, then so be it. I guess dat makes me a smoking ho? LOL!!! I'm gonna be me. And if you don't like me ignoring bans, then you can leave me and my business alone. I'd ignore a park smoking ban myself. Nobody is forcing kids to be around smokers who are rude to antis. So the kids can go somewhere else!
I can think of much worse law breaking than ignoring a park smoking ban. And I dare a B like dat to tell a smoker to put it out. Based on the way she makes those AL smokers sound, dey a lot similar to smokers in the streets by me.

(Dis is news dat deserves a post on my blog as well. But for the record, dis is cited from the CD2U online smoke shop.)
URGENT !!! CONTACT YOUR U.S. SENATORS THIS WEEK !!!
*** DO NOT LET CONGRESS TAKE AWAY YOUR RIGHT ***
*** TO PURCHASE TOBACCO BY MAIL OR INTERNET!!! ***
Be sure to contact your U.S. Senator's offices THIS WEEK to vote "NO" on S.1147 that will make it illegal for you to purchase tobacco products by mail or by Internet. This will be voted on this Thursday 11/5/09.
- Dial 1-800-828-0498 and ask for your Senator's office.
- Identify yourself as a constituent of that state.
- Say, "I am calling to register my request to please vote NO on S.1147" (You do not have to say you are a smoker - just a constituent.)
- Be polite and concise, and do it twice. (Call both your U.S. Senators)
If you want to give a more specific reason to vote no, following are some of the arguments against S.1147:
- Undue hardship presented to many smokers who are older and shut-in with limited mobility. It is unfair to prevent them from buying tobacco products through home delivery.
- Discriminatory pricing as the majority of smokers are lower-income, many on a fixed income. It is discriminatory to force them to pay higher prices.
- Discriminatory taxation as smokers were forced to pay an additional increase of more than $7 a carton in new federal taxes earlier this year.
- Unlawful double-taxation as Internet and mail-order retailers are already collecting and paying federal and state excise taxes in the state where the tobacco is purchased.
- Discriminatory restriction of trade towards smokers as any other lawful product can be purchased through mail-order and through the Internet.

"I have made it a rule never to smoke more than one cigar at a time."
- Mark Twain
Presidents Who Smoke: 61% of all U. S. presidents smoked tobacco. As the legendary story reveals John F. Kennedy gave orders to Press Secretary Pierre Salinger to round up as many Corona cigars (JFK's favorite) before signing the Cuban trade embargo. Salinger later reported 1,200 Coronas in his possession. It was not until the Clinton administration when an absolute no-smoking policy was implemented in the White House and Hillary happily removed all the ashtrays from the premises. So where might Barack Obama sneak a smoke? It's rumored that Willie Nelson fired up on the White House roof when invited to spend a night, though we doubt it was tobacco he was smoking.
MO: Continued smoking in reservation bars, casinos boosts business. We look forward to seeing MO bans collapse too.
SC: ALERT: Florence City Council members to propose city smoking ban. (After a failed attempt in 2005.)
Canada: Dr. Stella Daskalopoulou Anti Junk Science. By Michael J. McFadden... something makes me think that this "One Cigarette Is Deadly" study may just possibly be biased a bit toward producing and promoting a certain desired perception.
Canada: Judge says NO and Ruling lets federal inmates puff away outdoors. The ruling applies to all federal penitentiaries in Canada. Smoking rules in provincial jails vary by province.
Canada: Peel says NO, rejects proposal to ban smoking in tenants homes... officials said restricting tenants rights to do what they wish in their own homes wouldn't stand up in court.
Croatia: Says NO and gives up on smoking ban. Owners of small cafés can now decide themselves whether to allow smoking or not. When the ban was introduced, it met with widespread protests.
Scotland: Increasing heart disease has steadily paralleled the rise of motor vehicle use... encourage many Scots who currently drive, to walk or use healthy bicycles instead.
UK: Watch: Welcome to Britain, eternal darkness and despair.
