Smoking Ban

Yes now they are talking about banning smoking in the Military. Study recommends total ban on smoking for soldiers - CNN.com

I smoke and am in the Military so of course I think it is assinine. What are you folks' thoughts on this?

I don't smoke, but i don't believe its the gov'ts responsibility to worry about my health, well i guess maybe it will be since they will be taking over the health care. J/K.. Tehy did that ban in all MN bars and restaurants and business tanked. I can see it in family restaurants like a dennys or perkins, but let people smoke in bars. They want to ban it in cars now if you have kids riding with you.

Yet another morale booster brought to you by the messiah. First they take away what you need to survive, and now thay take what you use to relax.

PSD- yea, I finally got one.

They say it is because of the increase in health costs related to smokers. I have had no health issues that the Navy has had to fix related to smoking they all have been related to working.

This is just an example of a solution in search of a problem. The government decides to fund a whole bunch of programs with money they raise from tobacco taxes, while simultaneously trying to discourage the use of such substances.


I disagree strongly with banning it outright or forbidding smoking altogether, although I do believe that others (non-smokers, children, hospital patients, employees, folks waiting in line, etc., etc.) should not be subjected to so-called 'second hand' smoke from those who partake in such a disgusting habit.

We already have virtually banned it indoors (a good thing - especially in public places) and in densely-populated outdoor places (sports parks, etc.); but perhaps they're going too far if they say that nobody can smoke on their own time, off-duty and away from others. That is just crap!


What is next, saying that folks who put their lives on the line for our great nation are not supposed to enjoy a cold beer, eat fattening food or listen to loud music? Watch out, folks; the camel's nose is under the tent!

The whole smoking ban anywhere is krap. It is none of the governments business if I allow smoking in my diner. If my customers choose to go somewhere that smoking is not allowed that's my business and their business. If I go under because I allow smoking and nobody comes in to eat but a few smokers, that's my business.

It's my property and my right as a property owner what goes on, on my property. I'm so tired of big brother getting into every facit of my life.

What next, can't keep guns or maybe alcohol in my house?


BTW, my establishment is smoke free, but It's my choice.

PSD- yea, I finally got one.
