While I don’t have a great deal of confidence that this will do anything more than slow the momentum of the freedom-hating fascist pigs who run government in St. Paul, or the self-righteous, smug a-holes like our friend Bob at AMA or Jeanne Weigum from Association of Nonsmokers-Minnesota (who hates billboards and city lights as much as she hates smoke), I hope it will force the aforementioned fascist pigs and a-holes to spend a small fortune to defend their anti-independence actions.
Almost as disturbing as the ban, is the attitude of the jerks who favor it.
Dave Thune is one of the most arrogant pieces of fecal matter to come along in quite a while. He pushes a ban that will kill small businesses and then has the balls to propose tax dollars be used to help them survive:
Thune said he already is weighing an effort to provide city financial assistance to small-bar owners, perhaps financing for building outdoor patios or other improvements to ease the impact of going cold turkey on smoking this spring.
But the feces really start flying when he puts the blame not on his anti-American, freedom hating, fascist law, but on other bar owners:
"I think some vocal, well-off bar owners are really turning on the neighborhood pubs," said Thune, who is a smoker. "It's the little guys that are going to suffer."
Thune is a shameless bastard.
Next on or list of fascists is the mayor himself:
"The mayor believes that the vast majority of St. Paul residents support the smoking ban, though he certainly respects the right of bar owners to move forward with a referendum," said Coleman's spokesman, Bob Hume. "In 10 years, we will look back and wonder why we ever allowed smoking in bars and restaurants, just as we do today with office buildings and hospitals."
Notice the wording, “…why we ever allowed…”,
These Lefties kill me. They actually believe rights are given to us by governement. Perhaps they should reread the founding documents.
And these dirt bags are concerned about Justice Alito?
I wonder what other things we are allowed to do are on Comrade Coleman’s list for extermination.
Then there are Moffitt and Weigum:
"There certainly are risks involved for them," Weigum said of supporters of a repeal. "I don't think they can win the public health battle, but they've always argued the public didn't want it. … If they lose, it takes away their last protection, and they'll probably lose the entire state."
She’s right about one thing: winning on the subject of public health won’t work because the lies she and her comrades have been spewing are so ingrained in the minds of the ignorant – like Thune – it is almost impossible to reverse the damage.
How does this bitch live with herself? She thinks nothing of the freedom of others. All she gives a damn about is Jeanne and what Jeanne wants.
Mark my words: This elitist broad and her spineless sidekick Bob will come after smokers in their homes after they succeed in eradicating it from every other venue.
I wonder how Thune will react when the Smoking Police kick his door in and drag his ass to jail for smoking in his own home. I can’t wait to hear him cry, “What about my rights.”
Sorry Dave, you gave up your rights when you made a deal with the devil and jumped on the anti-smoking bandwagon.
WAKE UP! THESE PEOPLE ARE DANGEROUS AND WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO RESAPE SOCIETY ACCORDING TO THEIR WARPED VIEW OF THE WORLD.
COLEMAN, THUNE, WEIGUM, MOFFITT AND THE REST OF THEIR ANTI-FREEDOM FIGHTERS DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT YOUR HEALTH, THEY CARE ONLY ABOUT FORCING YOU TO LIVE AS THEY WANT YOU TO.
