Wink Smoking isn't cool anymore

The effects of second-hand smoke don't matter. The country has moved from a smoking culture to a non-smoking culture. In a smoking culture, there is no downside to smoking. It is glamorous, cool. In a smoking culture, non-smokers have no choice but to tolerate smoking behavior.

In a non-smoking culture, smokers have no choice but to tolerate the restrictions placed on smoking. An example of a similar cultural change is the Wild West. The gun-toting cowpoke was also a victim of a cultural change. Carrying a trusty sidearm was a "right." When the culture changed, the gun-toting cowpoke became an abused minority whose rights were trampled by bleeding hearts and anti-gun Nazis.

Today, many consider carrying a gun a right but that doesn't change the fact that it's mostly illegal unless you conform to government restrictions.

Smokers long for the good old days when you could do as you damn well pleased and FU to anyone who didn't like it. Those days are gone.

I agree w/ your entire post and I would add one more thought...another shift that I see in the culture is that people cant/ won't mind their own buisiness. It almost seems we've become a culture of "rats" in that we can't just let each other live our lives. I don't know why this is but niebors can't seem to live side by side without finding something to bitch about....ofcourse if someone was commiting murder you would expect to report to the authorities. I am talking about the day to day living that we all do. It's like we are all held under this giant microscope....I just don't understand why the culture has shifted to this kind of up in your face confrontational thing..what ever happend to live and let live? Are we all bored? Is there a void that needs to be filled with knowing and getting involved in everyone elses buisness? Your right....its a brave new world....adjust or git out the way!

Does anyone else believe there is more dangerous toxins in the air we breath everyday then is in cigarettes...and what about exaust from cars...I think there is more danger in this to children then cig smoke. The government in the last several years has cut back on a ton of measures designed to keep industrial pullotion in check....but a citizin can't smoke aound a child...insane! I'm done...
Your argument becomes invalid when you introduce a red herring to attempt to prove your point. The point is that cigarette smoke is dangerous for children in a confined environment. That can be controlled by law. The other examples are far less dangerous to children. If parents do not protect their own children, then the government should rightfully step in and mandate it.

I'd give this post 10 thumbs up if I had them! I don't smoke unless I am in a casino (go figure) but the ventilation is so good that you don't notice the smoke; unless you are in Bally's Poker Room (the only smoking poker room in AC).

As for the OP. Get over it already. This has been in the back of the minds of legislators for many, many years (at least in PA). I'm not sure if it is a law in PA but I know it has been talked about a lot in the past. I make it a habit of letting people know that they are killing their kids whenever I see an parent smoking near their children.

Secondhand smoke is harmless, there is also evidence it may be beneficial. The World health organization did a study confirming this.

Anybody who says secondhand smoke is harmless is very naive. Granted secondhand smoke may not kill you right away but it won't help you either. I guess next people will say that shooting yourself in the foot is harmless too... However, I don't agree that secondhand smoke is worse than what the smoker is inhaling. You have to think about it...say I'm smoking and you are sitting beside me. You are breathing in what I exhale and what I don't inhale (what comes off the tip). However, I am breathing in what I inhale through the filter and I am also inhaling smoke off of the tip. Granted I may not be inhaling as much from the tip as you but the amount of smoke that I inhale verses you should offset that.

Meh, my *cough* father died at an early age due to *cough* smoking, so this wouldn't surprise *cough* me that they pushed successfully to ban *cough* smoking with children in the car.

Dude, you've got it all wrong. This is democracy at its finest. A government elected by the people to represent the views of the majority.

There is a very unfortunate side effect of the smoking ban in NYC: You can no longer light up a joint at a Louis XIV or Silversun Pickups show at Irving Plaza or The Bowery Ballroom without being hassled by "the man". Bullshit!

Please take this back, there is a ban on quoting from ANY Star Wars film, especially when the topic is related to the effects of second hand cigarette smoke to the body. "This is isn't the message board you're looking for...you can go about your business...move along".
