Nugget, evidently someone that you know died of cancer. And I'm very sorry to hear that. I really am.
But you obviously need to get. a. grip. on reality.
People are not "murderers" because they smoke, and I am starting to take personal offense from your constant personal stereotypes and general hatred for people who choose to smoke.
AS I SAID, I am a very considerate smoker. And I constantly go out of my way not to expose cigarette smoke to any child, or anyone who do not smoke in public places where they do not CHOOSE to be around smoke.
I won't argue the poor judgement of smokers, and the health problems that smoking can cause. It's an addiction, it sucks, and I won't make excuses for my bad habit on a personal level. But I won't be attacked for it either..
Last night, I went to a bar... (a bar that did not enforce a smoking ban).. and I had a cigarette WHENEVER I felt like I wanted to do so (as did every other smoker in the bar).
And if someone HAD a problem with being around it, THEY had the choice to go away. THEY had the choice not to be "murdered" by the smokers. THEY were there because they chose to be.
- If the owners of the bar would rather not have smokers in their business, THEY should have the right to decide it.
- If they welcome people who smoke, THEY should have the right to decide it.
The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese....
