Beat Up on the Minority

It's now estimated that around 22% of the nation are smokers. This makes them the last minority in the country that it's not only OK but actively encouraged to discriminate against.

Now it's gotten to the point that you can't smoke in your car if you're near a hospital and you can't smoke on a California beach. The latest assualt is municipalities saying that you can't smoke within 25 feet of a business entrance. This will have the effect of having workers taking their 5-minute smoke break by getting in their car and driving to the nearest farmland.

Since these city governments are so keen on this, I have a suggestion. Since my having a smoke is a weapon of mass destruction, how about they (and ASH and the rest of the zealots) forgo their tobacco taxes. After all, since they won't let you smoke in their jurisdiction, it only makes sense that they wouldn't want to be seen profiting from it, would'nt it?

Yeah - that'll happen.
