WARNING TO NONSMOKERS!You might not want to read this! skip to my last post it might not offend!This is just another rant "AGAINST THE MACHINE"Yup You got it
The color here is symbolic,of the TOBACCO that I chose to smoke!NO one is twisting my arm it's my choice!But this Choice comes at a dear Price! For me to smoke I pay a heavy price,The taxes are risin' almost daily and I pay more than my fair share!The taxes I pay for these cigs go to improve everyone's life!
Big Brother has found a gold mine in us smokers!
He taxes more all the time! But why are we singled out?BECAUSE THEY CAN! And we are lumped in a minority,That is losin' it's rights!
Tobacco helped build this country and now it's supportin' it too! We as smokers are payin' too
Yet We have no rights!!!Everyday another city bans us for that which we pay,We can't even smoke in public but still we pay for the right! Resturants are closed to us as are bars and the like!Go figure We pay more than a nonsmoker but we are a menace!
I'm more than a considerate smoker I won't smoke where it's not welcome.I can wait till i'm done eatin' and go outside!
But I Pay More taxes for this choice and feel it's only right...That I have the choice to smoke if I'd like! When and were I like!
Our freedom of choice is bein' stepped on by good ol' Uncle Sam!
I freely chose to do this why do I pay for not havin' the RIGHT! What are they going to do when smokin' is illegal,after the tax has dried up? What will they label you as and tax you to death? What is next on ther list that they'll deny us the freedom to enjoy?

Please go away there's nothing left ta see just leave me to smoke this KOOL in privacy while it's still legal

Yup there's Henri's "KISS MY ASS" pic,he had to add his two cents!

In answer to her question of who subsidizes her healthcare - WE DO. Every smoker supports not only him or herself but TWO NON_SMOKERS as well. So you have asthma - go to non-smoking establishments and leave us our smoking establishments. Fair remains fair, dammit!

Sorry but as a non smoker that suffers with asthma, I reserve the right to breathe easily and not be choking to death by the time I get home from a night out.

Your taxes subsidise your healrhcare in later years, but who will subsidise mine as a result of passive smoking ? Inhaling your foul smoke ?

Hello and Welcome! appreciate your comment and your opinion to!Always my pleasure to read what You say! And you have a valid point! But please remember I for one am a courtious smoker,I'll never blow smoke in your face! My rant is about losin' rights not so much that I can't smoke in the presence of nonsmokers! everyone should be FREE to CHOSE but not harm others in the procees!Smokers should at least be able to walk out a door and lite up,It's gettin' so that here we can't smoke anywhere outside at many places! And accept my apologies for any rude smoker who's blown smoke in your face!
Always a pleasure to hear both sides of a situation! Thanx for weighin' in with your opinion~ You and your opinion are always welcome here in my sandbox!

Yep....the statewide smoking ban in Arkansas goes into effect the 21st of this month. And we smokers have sat by and let them take more and more away from us...we should be ashamed of ourselves!
