Unfortunately, I just don't see the lifting of indoor smoking bans as the response to this. :roll:

Nope. Once a liberty is yielded, it is not returned.

Unfortunately true. There was never much principled opposition to these bans; it was mostly pragmatic whining and pitting the one group against the other, then counting heads, etc.--one of the defects of democracy. Arguments should have had a property rights and freedom of association context, to my mind. I wonder if people would get the point if smoking were made mandatory?

I really don't care what happens out in the world as long as my home and car are smoke friendly. :shock:

If smokers were even half as organized and tenacious as the NRA is with lobbying....imagine.

Then we bring in the liquor industry and we're insurmountable.
Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms for the win! :cheers:
