Yes, you have every right not to smoke in your home, but you have no right to tell someone else they cannot smoke in theirs. Or even on their outdoor terrace. Next will you tell people that if they have visitors in your smoke-free environment that their visitors cannot smoke in the parking lot?
The problem for the anti's in this case is that smoker's own their own condominiums.
And of course it's the usual game played with magic smoke the miraculous substance that defies the laws of physics by floating down power lines and floating through sealed brick walls.
The news is that this has spurred an idea.
I'm conflicted about this,I'm happy that the smokerphobes will get their own group of housing but I'm sad that the smokers are going to be shoved out and isolated even more than they already are.
And of course it will never stop at that,it rarely ever does.
If you've never had the misfortune to watch people addressing either their local boards of health or their local council's about banning smoking outdoors or in parks on beaches or on the town 's sidewalks or in multi-unit homes then you have never seen something as tragic as I have.
I watched this live.
And I have never been so sickened by the lies,misinformation and general propaganda spewed by the anti's.
This is what they are doing to us and how they are doing it.They are using children,making up their own statistics and yelling about being exposed to secondhand smoke outdoors of all places.
I wouldn't normally link to something this dreadful but it should be seen,smokers need to see what they are up against.
I don't believe the tactics change much from one meeting to the next but this is how these insane bans get passed.
This is how rights and freedoms get trampled,this is how we keep loosing ground.
The best part of this meeting was the older lady from the elderly housing complex who got up to speak,what she said about how far things have gone was the only ray of sunshine in this entire charade.
