Cut the BS. Instead of addressing the issues I raised, you and the rest have done nothing but insinuate that there's something wrong with me personally. People who do that are not friends.

Re: Town Hall Meeting on Smoking Band

Well, just don't pretend that your attention deficit disorder is MY fault. Blame your parents or your teachers or something. For that matter, one of the skills that I have had to develop is of figuring out whether there is anything of substance in pseudo-technical writing which is laced with hostili...

Re: Town Hall Meeting on Smoking Band

You know, it's funny that I don't have a clue what CarolAnn has been saying through out this whole thread because all I heard was things like, 'slimy mouth', Nazis, Heil Hitler and other angry reponses. Someone did say along the way that she's not letting her point get across, by the over shadowing...

CarolAnn, what I posted was supposed to be an informational post. You are an angry, angry person. Only YOU would try to turn it into a name calling ordeal. Believe me I know how competition works!

Re: Town Hall Meeting on Smoking Band

A Smoking Ban(d) topic has always led to lots of banter here. It's great! I'm of the opinion that if someone is extremely passionate over a cause, to the point of being a zealot, they will believe everything and anything that is written or spoken to promote their passion. Enough said about that. My...

Re: Town Hall Meeting on Smoking Band

We had some discussions like this last fall under the topic "Protect Private Property Rights Of Business Owners In WI". I'm always very wary and concerned when the government passes any laws to 'protect us' from something. When and where should the line be drawn? That's a tough decision. ...

Re: Town Hall Meeting on Smoking Band

Racefanatic, Don't assuming I have any opinion about bar owners. It is an unfortunate reality that too many small business owners don't take the time to keep proper books and often put themselves out of business by simply pulling cash from the till to pay bills, employees and even themselves. Howev...

Re: Town Hall Meeting on Smoking Band

Illinois has a smoking ban. As a non smoker I like it. It has brought a lot of controversy here as well as it sounds like there. Someone went as far as holding a smoking party at his auto body garage and advertised it. No authorites showed up but he proved his point it was his garage on his private...

Re: Town Hall Meeting on Smoking Band

Well carolann, you may go ahead and call me naive or whatever name you choose. I really take little stock in personal attacks of any sort on the public forums. The fact remains that I know, at least in my own personal case, that it most definitely IS SMOKING that affects my health...smoking that is...

Re: Town Hall Meeting on Smoking Band

Countrygirl49, It isn't the government that is banning smoking in your car in your work parking lot (unless that parking lot is a public garage). That would be your employer, motivated by their insurance company. From what I've seen, even CarolAnn admits smokers have a higher rate of disease, wheth...

Re: Town Hall Meeting on Smoking Band

countrygirl, never say never. I've seen some pretty stupid moves by smokers driving down the road. Ever accidentally dropped a cigarette while driving? There are other examples, and although these things are not on the same level as dui, (and I am aware the comparison may be far-fetched to some) th...

Re: Town Hall Meeting on Smoking Band

Why does everyone seem to think comparing smoking to drinking makes sense. Once again, unless I take a drink of alcohol and then spit it all over you, they are different. If I choose to drink and am not an idiot (drunk driving) how exactly does having a drink have any effect on you? If you choose t...

Re: Town Hall Meeting on Smoking Band

I've asked CarolAnn early on in this thread to help us understand her passion against the anti-smoking crusades that have been taking place for the last bunch of years. I haven't yet gotten any reasonable response back to that inquiry. T-Hawk Yooper may have stumbled onto something when he 'discove...

Re: Town Hall Meeting on Smoking Band

No one is being banned, and while some of the problems were one sided, it was also a two way street. Basically, just asking everyone to play nice... I am always happy to play nice. My post brought up scientific issues, but nobody responded to them with relevant science-related comments. The comment...

Ok CarolAnn, it seems obvious that you will never attempt to look at this from any other view than the suspicious one that seems to rule your very existance, but I'll have one more go at this.... The anti-smoking campaign, like any other legal proposal, will never make everyone happy. Then again, e...
