"The liar's punishment is not in the least that he is not believed,
but that he cannot believe anyone else."
- George Bernard Shaw
Property Rights for all include Smokers Rights! Don’t believe the lies about secondhand smoke. By Theodore J. King. Fortunately, it is simply not true that even brief exposure to secondhand smoke can cause cardiovascular disease. The myths about secondhand smoke are lies and the product of the mass hysteria the nanny state has wrought that has overcome reason. The hidden and sly purpose of the attack on secondhand smoke is to convince everyone, even rational, smart people, that smoking is not only unhealthy but evil and that all tobacco should be banished from the earth.
From The Mailbag
GA: Macon Group Considering Tougher Anti-Smoking Rules. Ed Lash says, "It would be bad for me and anyone else that smokes. I mean where do you draw the line?"
IN: House exempts taverns, private clubs from state smoking ban bill. House Bill 1018 would still apply to most workplaces and restaurants, unless they serve alcohol and are open only to those 21 years and older. The House Health Committee already had exempted casinos. The House also approved amendments to exempt veterans and fraternal clubs - such as VFWs and Elks clubs - and nursing homes, as long as both have separate smoking areas.
KY: Proposed Smoking Ban Bill Going Nowhere. "When lawmakers don’t want to deal with tough issues..." Westrom admits the bill will go nowhere in this year’s legislature but has proposed it, nonetheless.
MI: Should the smoking ban include the drive-thru? By Marc Schollett. "Vehicles are exempt; vehicles where people are smoking inside the vehicles are exempt from the law." Bottom line, you can smoke in your car, just about anywhere, with the windows down without violating the smoking ban, even if it impacts others. Your car is your property.
NC: IPCPR Urges Courtesy, Not Ban, in Raleigh, NC Parks. McCalla asked, “What if someone complained about the odor of cheap perfume or wet dogs? What if someone complained about seriously obese people taking up more than their share of seating space in the shelters and on buses?
SC: Push For Smoking Bans In Spartanburg County. Romberger, the healthcare professional who presented the findings, said counties and municipalities should absolutely move toward smoking bans.
USA: America’s Culture of Busybodies. Higgs writes. “Because this proclivity provides an irresistible opportunity for politicians to promote their own interests at public expense, one must expect that we Americans are doomed to an endless procession of costly, futile, and destructive crusades.”
Scotland: Forest has welcomed the announcement by the Scottish Government that the introduction of the tobacco display ban in Scotland is being delayed from 1 October 2011 until further notice due to a legal appeal by Imperial Tobacco.

Smoking is a choice for the smoker and the business owner

(From my Facebook wall)

Smoking is a choice. And biz owners should decide for themselves if dey should ban smoking in their biz. But instead, politicians wanna tell owners how to run their biz.

How come smoke-free taverns aint filled up on a daily basis? Afta all, dere are mo nonsmokers, right? Antismokers wanted smoke-free restaurants, bars, clubs, and even bowling alleys. Use the GD smoke-free biz's you mofos wanted all along!

And giving bartenders nice tips would help too so dey can work. Smokers tip betta than nonsmokers.

Smoking-only businesses WOULD work if we had no smoking bans. I predict a smoking-permitted bar would be crowded on a daily basis compared to a smoke-free bar. And I definitely would work at a smoking-permitted bar!

Camel packs

I don't think RJR is trying to make smoking look glamorous to kids with those newer Camel packs (in reference to an article previously posted on here). Based on the fact the days of cig ads are over, I dunno how a kid can can see the new packs without going into a store first. If a tobacco company wanna makes a cig pack lok attractive to kids, how about making bubble gum-flavored cigs? Oh yeah, flavored cigs are already banned cept menthols. I think the final hearing on the future of menthols comes in March of dis year.

My 2 cents on electronic cigarettes (e-cigs)

In February, I'm getting rid of the "Online Smoke Shops" page. Because since the only smoke shops online now are essentially e-cig smoke shops (as well as an online cigar smoke shop), dere's no point in keeping a list of dead smoke shops. You can thank Obama for killing your favorite smoke shops. When we used to be able to buy even cig cartons of small tobacco brands.

It seems like the e-cig is taking over the online smoke shop industry. And while I'm personally not a fan of e-cigs, one e-cig smoke shop wants to be affiliated with my blog. And based on my recent visits to smokers rights forums, it seems like more smokers are switching to the e-cig.

Betta enjoy the e-cigs while dey legal in the USA. Cause I have a feeling antis will do everythang dey can to get e-cigs banned. I'm sure their reasoning is "E-cigs are a way for smokers to work around smoking bans as well as being a cheap alternative to buying normal cigs."

Despite the fact e-cigs do NOT have tobacco and despite the fact dey do NOT produce smoke, I don't see what's the big deal about someone enjoying an e-cig in a restaurant, on the job, or even on a plane. I guess antis don't like seeing an e-cig glow like an actual cig when someone drags on it? Cause I don't see how using an e-cig inside of any place is the same as a person violating a smoking ban.
