PROPOSED MARYLAND SMOKING BAN
10/3/2007 7:05:57 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

OUR NATION IS BECOMING MORE LIKE NAZI GERMANY... IN 1939 HITLER BANNED SMOKING! IT WAS ONE OF THE FIRST RESTRICTIONS OF CONTROLLING LEGAL SUBSTANCES!

NOW, MARYLAND IS LEADING THE PACK, TAKING AWAY MORE FREEDOMS!

IF YOU ARE A NON-SMOKER, GREAT! GOD BLESS YOU! BUT... YOU HAVE THE ENTIRE REST OF THE WORLD TO BREATHE YOUR 'FRESH' POLLUTED AIR FROM CHEMICAL FACTORIES SPEWING...
YOU WANT THE RESTAURANTS? OKAY, TAKE THEM... BUT... PLEASE LEAVE OUR DAMNED POLLUTED BARS ALONE! GO EAT SOMEWHERE ELSE!

THE BAR OWNERS DON'T NEED YOUR PALTRY PATRONAGE! WHAT? ONCE A WEEK, OR ONCE A MONTH, YOU DECIDE TO GO TO A CERTAIN BAR BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE BEST FOOD?

WE SUPPORT THE BARS... WE EAT! WE DRINK! WE SHOOT POOL! WE PLAY THE JUKEBOX! WE SING KARAOKE! WE PLAY THE SLOTS! WE PLAY KENO!

YOU THINK THE MORTGAGE MARKET SCAM IS A FIASCO? IF THIS SMOKING BAN PASSES, WATCH HOW MANY BARS GO BANKRUPT AND BUSINESSES FAIL!

THIS STATE'S STUPIDITY WILL LOSE SO MANY MILLIONS IN TAXES, IT WILL NOT BE FUNNY!





AS A SMOKER OF 50 YEARS, I AM AGAINST THIS BAN! WHY?


UNFAIR – HARASSMENT AGAINST SMOKERS, MOST OF WHOM ARE ADDICTED TO NICOTINE. SHOULD HAVE RIGHTS UNDER THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT! ADA.

UNFAIR – PRICES AND INCREASED TAXES ARE CONSTANTLY PERPETRATED AGAINST THESE TARGETED CONSUMERS – WHY ISN’T ALCOHOL BEING PURSUED? DRUNKEN DRIVERS, DEATHS ON HIGHWAYS, COSTS OF ALCOHOLISM TREATMENTS, HOSPITALIZATION, MEDICAL EXPENSES, HOW MANY MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ATTEND AA MEETINGS? SMOKERS DEMAND EQUAL PERSECUTION AGAINST OTHER ‘SO-CALLED’ KILLERS... THE COFFERS OF THE STATE TREASURY WOULD GROW FASTER AND LARGER IF YOU WENT AFTER ALCOHOL AS VIOLENTLY!

POOL LEAGUES – THERE ARE 3 DIFFERENT LEAGUES – APA, TAP, ABC – I HAVE SHOT POOL IN BARS FOR OVER 6 YEARS NOW – PREDOMINANTLY, 90% OR MORE PLAYERS SMOKE! THEY PAY DUES EVERY SESSION, PLUS EVERY TIME THEY SHOOT, PLUS DRINK ALCOHOL AND EAT FOOD – THIS UNFAIR LAW IS GOING TO DRIVE PEOPLE OUT OF THE ENTIRE POOL-SHOOTING INDUSTRY!

BARS ARE THE LAST BASTION OF SMOKERS – THE SMALL MINORITY OF NON-SMOKERS CAN GO ANY OTHER DAMNED PLACE IN THE WORLD TO EAT! WHY INVADE OUT PRIVATE, CHOSEN DOMAIN? JUST SO YOU “DO=GOODERS” CAN BRAG THAT YOU WON?

DEMAND EQUAL TIME WITH TV ADS – ALWAYS PICK ON SMOKERS – WHAT ABOUT MORBID OBESITY EPIDEMIC? WHAT ABOUT DIABETES EPIDEMIC? LET’S BAN – TWINKIES – BAN CHOCOLATE – BAN MCDONALDS – BAN DUNKIN’ DONUTS – BAN FAT-ASSES COSTS OF TREATMENT AND HOSPITALIZATION, WHICH DRIVE UP MEDICAL COSTS

TAXATION – YOU WANT TO RAISE MORE MONEY? INCREASE TAXES ON ALL DIETING PRODUCTS, THERE ARE SO MANY, YOU WOULD MAKE A FORTUNE! INCREASE TAXES ON ALL “FAST FOODS” -

THIS STATE AND THIS NATION HAS DISCRIMINATED AGAINST SMOKERS FOR 20 YEARS NOW! THE ENTIRE EPA REPORT BACK IN 1986 WAS A TOTAL FARCE! IT WAS NOT BASED ON SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE, PRE-FORMED CONCLUSIONS WERE ‘LEAKED’ FALSELY AND PUBLISHED ERRONEOUSLY, AND SUBSEQUENTLY THROWN OUT OF COURTS DOWN IN NORTH CAROLINA, ONE OF THE PRINCIPAL TOBACCO PRODUCING STATES!

ULTIMATELY, IT IS ALL ABOUT MONEY $$$ AND YOU ALL KNOW IT! STOP THE BULLSHIT, AND PASS THE APPROVAL OF SLOT MACHINES ALL OVER MARYLAND, SOLVE ALL THE DEFICIT PROBLEMS, AND LEAVE HONEST, LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS WHO SMOKE ALONE!

ALSO, THE GOVERNOR’S PROPOSAL TO INCREASE TAXES ON CIGARETTES IS ANOTHER UNFAIR AND VINDICTIVE HARASSMENT! IF THAT PASSES, SMOKERS WILL BAND TOGETHER, BY FAMILIES, TEAMS, ASSOCIATIONS, NEIGHBORHOODS... WHATEVER, AND DRIVE ACROSS STATE LINES AND BUY LEGAL PRODUCTS BY CASELOADS, AND YOU WILL LOSE TAXES ON CIGARETTES, BY DRAMATIC DROPS IN SALES! STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES!



FINALLY, MY DAD SMOKED CHEAP 6 CENT KING EDWARD CIGARS FOR OVER 20 YEARS, AND INHALED – HE LIVED UNTIL AGE 84 !!! MY MOM WHO LIVED WITH HIM IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD FOR 60 YEARS, HAD BOTH ASTHMA AND EPILEPSY, AND ALLERGIES... SHE ONLY MADE IT TO AGE 83 !!!


“SECOND-HAND SMOKE” IS PURE, UNADULTERATED BULL-SHIT !!!!


HAVE A NICE DAY! TOM HYLAND...


LIFETIME, AGE 67, BORN AND BRED BALTIMORON... READY TO MOVE OUT OF THIS DICTATORIAL STATE OF MARYLAND...


FAIR IS FAIR, AND FOUL IS FOUL... AND YOU ALL KNOW IT !!!


P.S. A COPY OF THIS EMAIL WILL BE POSTED TO MY WEBSITE, SO OTHER MARYLANDERS CAN READ IT!
