Hmmm... lessee... that would eliminate all outdoor cooking in the state.
(unless it only applies to those that smoke brisket over tobacco leaves)
Again I ask... WHAT?!
Sounds crazy to me. I should know, I'm from here. Think I'll go paint now. :^)
unanimously to ban smoking in bars and restaraunts. They also declared it legal and just for dog
*owners* the right to bring their dogs onto the same premises. In Austin (in some instances),
dogs have more rights than people. (and don't tell me "dogs are people too", I'll break your fucking jaw.
My bad... sorry.
I agree with banning smoking in places like DMV or courtbuildings where you are stuck and HAVE to use those buildings with no alternatives.
Restaurants, bars, etc.- I think they should leave it up to the restauranteur. If *I* go somewhere and it's covered in smoke I can make a decision on if I want to go there or not. The public will decide in majority if they want that sort of thing... government doesn't need to be involved.
As for smoking in your house or car... it's YOUR FUCKING HOUSE/CAR. What's next? they'll tell you you can't beat your meat in your own house??? WTF?
If Darwinism determines that your constitution can't handle your smoking and you continue to do so to your death, we really don't need your dumb, weak ass on the planet- so much the better.
Well, in some states, they dictate how you may have sex in your house. How is smoking any different?
*waits for it*
Simple fact, these bullshit laws are here because people refuse to accept
personal responsiblity. Much easier to just let the government decide for
you, because it's so hard to think as a sheeple. Baaaaaa.
First guy I ever had sex with mentioned a humiliating experience where, while he was having sex with this woman, she reached over and grabbed a sandwich.
Just to keep the focus on food in this room.
fleeb: I often claim that I would be able to experience much more pleasure if I were eating a steak during sex. Sadly, my husband thinks that's weird.
and back to food - people should take responsibility and realize that if you smoke where I'm eating, you're stealing all the flavor from my food and leaving me to eat nicotine-stinky food.
then again, I guess you could open a chain of smoker's restaurants and let all the smokers poison each other...
Personally, I strongly appreciate it every time I walk into a place with no smoking and can eat without my senses being violated by nicotine.
and one more thing:
"having a smoking section in a restaurant is like having a peeing section in a swimming pool"
"I don't like this, so NONE OF YOU can do this."
Makes me wish we dried out coming out of the ocean.
Until recently (as in, a few years ago), restaurants in this area could have smoking/non-smoking sections... now they're supposed to be all non-smokeing.
Prior to the ban, though, we chose our restaurants carefully to avoid those that allowed smoking.
Worked okay, although it gets kind of challanging if you go to an area you're not familiar with.
others. For instance you can't use an exhaust fan at the local cigar
club that exhausts into the bedroom window next door.
i would like it if they made it so that i didn't have to smell in-n-out burger's exhaust. but i'm across the street.
I should open a cafe where you can't come in unless you smoke.
