Let's say you don't like live music. Is it ok to write a law banning live music from bars so that YOU are more comfortable when you go out?
And don;t bring up the "health" issue. You're at a ****ing BAR. AND don't bring up the worker's health issue... they choose to work there, there are hundreds of jobs with far far far worse health conditions that we don't ban.
It's simple. Anti-smoking BULLIES used the force of government to impose their will upon private business owners. Period.
I have argued this before, those who support it could care less. People gleefully give away other people's rights not seeing a trend. The same bullshit is going on with guns. People cheering more rights being taken away~
The person who is certain, and who claims divine warrant for his certainty, belongs now to the infancy of our species. Hitch~
