Skip to comments.NYC Wants to Mandate a No-Smoking Ban in Peoplesí Homes
Posted on 01/01/2013 12:34:34 PM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
NYC Mayor Bloomberg is behind a secret cabal of neighborhood spies who run around convincing tenants and landlords to disallow all smoking by tenants, even within their own apartments.
The community spy groups get a $10,000 bounty for their efforts. The bounty is coming out of a grant, in other words, our tax money.
This is ripe for corruption to say nothing about the whole stealth factor being unethical, sneaky, and communistic. It pits neighbor against neighbor and it demonizes people.
But don’t worry, it is for the common good.
I’ve never smoked in my life and I don’t like being around cigarettes, but what right does anyone have to tell someone what they can do in their own home? Did our Bill of Rights disappear? Can’t Mayor Bloomberg look up our inherent rights on the Internet?
Did anyone doubt the government would enter our homes? Seriously, did you doubt it?
In mid-November, the New York Times reported that more landlords are demanding that new renters promise not to smoke in their homes. Most are grandfathering in present tenants.
Kenbar Management’s new project at 1510 Lexington Avenue which opened this month bans smoking in all 298 units, in addition to private and shared terraces. You can’t even smoke outside, not even on the sidewalk around the building. You would think smokers were spreading sarin gas. Actually the leftist PR is great and they make smoking sound as dangerous.
The NYC Health Department produced a study that indicates 57% of new tenants might possibly have been exposed to secondhand smoke. That’s a study you can hang your hat on.
Kenbar is a private company and can do what they want but the government doing it is something altogether different. They want to intrude on our personal lives, especially now that they have put themselves in charge of our healthcare.
Public housing throughout the country is being encouraged to ban smoking and they are doing it.
Laws are being passed against smoking. For example, all apartments and condos in Richmond, California must ban smoking by law.
San Francisco has banned smoking but won’t extend the ban to pot.
Marijuana has been legalized in two states and is ignored in others while smoking is verboten. The fact that marijuana is a gateway drug is meaningless to the leftists.
Disney banned smoking in film which is rich since no one is talking about banning vulgar and violent movies and video games.
The Pentagon has been considering a ban on smoking by soldiers.
The left bans what they don’t like and the rest of us have no say in the matter. Is this really what people want? What will they ban next? The fact that many on the far left hate Conservatives, Republicans, Christians, religion, morality, salt, sugar, McDonald’s, baby formula, fuel oil and gas, et al should send shivers down your spine.
I don’t like being in the position of supporting smoking and I certainly don’t want to promote it but telling people what they can do in their own home is just wrong.

One nation under Bloomberg.
Happy New Year.
Nanny State PING!
Anyone in NYC notice that Despot Bloomberg also practices Nazi tactics when it comes to small businesses? Like when the Nazis painted “Juden” on store fronts, Despot Bloomberg practices the same method. He forces businesses to hang up signs in their store front rating how good the government thinks they are. A means you are OK. B not so good, C bad D the worst. Isn’t that wonderful? The autocracy of NYC like the Nazis informing the public to stay away from certain businesses. Forget the free market, word of mouth, the government determines whether or not you will have a successful business.
Not to mention every female teen idol they have produced in the past 15 years has turned into nothing but promotions for drugs, slutty behavior and promiscuous sex. Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Christina Aguilera are all Disney products.
Remember when the liberals liked to scare people by telling them that the Republicans wanted to take away all of their rights, freedoms and liberty?
Come on NYC, you can do it. People will be clamoring to just climb right in.
Shove it, Bloom-Turd, you nazi bastard!
The same city that thinks every 11 year old needs to know they are capable of handling sex
They want to ban smoking in the military? Many in our military are enduring heat, cold, filth, hunger, and pain for our country, and they want to take away one of their few comforts?
I really hate these people.
Is that for all businesses or just for restaurants? In Ohio the county board of health just issues pass/fail evaluations and if you don't pass you have a very short time to fix your problems or your restaurant is shut down.
Disney’s ABC has had 2 prime time shows with the word bi^ch in the title just this year.
both bombed thank goodness but it shows where the heart and soul of that company is
And there are FReepers who support this...............
While I, ashamedly, still smoke cigarettes (trying to stop).. I do NOT smoke in public. I ONLY smoke in my home.
It is NONE of the government’s business whether or not I smoke in my home.
HAR! She got to sit inside a mostly warm house and smoke her cigarette.
The law can stuff it, if they think I'm going to quit smoking in the house before I die. I may continue to smoulder for a while after I'm dead, depending on the circumstances.
Democrats become more like Nazis every day. Guns, tobacco, spending....soon they will be at the door....YOUR DOOR!
Stand proud and use the vegetation that the Good Lord gave us.
What people dont understand is this is AGENDA 21!! And it will continue little piece by little piece until we have NO freedoms ..and people will wonder how did that happen?
