I do smoke--cigarettes--and I make no apologies. The gummit hasn't yet convinced me that I should give it up. It's none of their damn business. We pay for my own health insurance --hate that we have been forced into medicare because of age. There's no way you can opt out of it, because of government regulations-- and because medical costs keep soaring, much of which is due to gummit interference in the system.

We have always taken care of ourselves and our families without the help of Big Brother, thank you very much! And most of all, we want to live our lives in peace without the government at every level telling us what to do--or waht not to do.

I average between 1-2 packs a week. Is that somwhow NOT smoking in moderation? I smoked more in the 10th grade, for crying out loud...The ban is said to protect everyone but I disagree. It SATISFIES a certain class of people while at the same time, it satisfies the GOVERNMENT.

I wish things were the way they used to be, Folks smoked inside and relieved themselves outside. A saloon or bar without a dog or a poker table isn’t right.

Yep, I’ve been married 30 years, and smoking cigarettes is the only bad habit I have left. (Of course, if the economy doesn’t turn around soon and my business doesn’t pick up, I’ll start spending money I don’t have, but then I would be qualified to run for Congress.)
