    Smoking ban

    goes into effect today. Does anyone have a link to the actual bill? We are trying to understand how this affects our business.

    If that government infringement means I can go to the bar and not have to come home smelling like an ashtray, I am all for it.

    And that's great for you (and me actually) but when the government takes something away that affects you, you may see thing differently.

    Re: Smoking ban

    Yep - wait until the government decides something you like is bad and decides to ban it. This is government run amuck - this is a businesses and customers choice. If the business wants to allow smoking then they assume the risk of driving away business. I as a customer will decide if I want to go to a place that allows smoking. This is government infringing on our lives for no good reason.

    They already have.....speeding. I love going fast and have built cars to do just that. But I obey the speed limit on the streets like a good little boy.....but go to the track to get my speed/power fix.

    Re: Smoking ban

    Go to USSR.com. I am sure you will find a copy of the bill along with the seatbelt law and helmet law.

    I hear ya. My neighbor just mowed off one of the trees I planted in our backyard. I wish I could go over and pummel him to the ground. Stupid government infringement.
