Fookin' Smoke Nazis

The sanctimonious bastages of the anti smoking lobby are at it again in Arizona.

Not content to kill 20% of the restaurant, pub and bar business in a single city (Tempe) in Arizona, now these self righteous ass clowns want to make the entire state's hospitality industry take a nose dive.

The economic impact referenced is what occurred in Tempe, Az when the anti public smoking bill passed.

Business closed, jobs were lost and tax revenues for the city declined. Talk about your unintended consequences!

Imagine the panic in city hall when the ultra liberal college town's mayor and city council recieved the word they had just diddled themselves! Why now they would have less money to tax away from a useful source and spend on their pet projects.

This is the boon that the nanny stater's want to bring to the rest of Arizona.

Now in the interest of open disclosure: I am a cigar smoker.

Yes, that's right I am that asocial, red meat eating, hunter of all nature's beautiful creatures, devourer of Mother Earth's non sentient children and an owner of firearms.

I like to go to the Brewery and order up a pint of IPA and smoke a cigar every once in awhile.

That I want to continue this activity is not the sole reason for my resistance to this measure.

While the economic impact is bad enough the real hurt will be felt by all citizens if this passes. A slippery slope will have been hit where more and more leglistation regarding our own actions will be passed.

What behavior will the nanny stater's want to modify next?

Your child rearing practices?

Perhaps what clothing you wear and where it can be worn?

Its time to tell all the weak kneed, whiney cry baby, know-what's-best-for-you, nanny staters to get stuffed and send them packing.

Even if you despise smoking as a practice, oppose this movement for your won reasons for whatever activity you like could easily be the next they want to regulate to death.
