Angry Smokers

I visited this blog belonging to a friend of mine... he posted some rant about not being allowed to smoke in restaurants.

Smokers are an angry bunch man.

Try and tell them the obvious and they get all patriotic... free country, constitution, americans dying for our freedom to SMOKE in public places!!!! What a load of shit

If we could SMOKE in restaurants, then we wouldn't be so damn ANGRY all the time! Heh...

I don't think we have a right to smoke in public places, but I do think that people who own property ought to have the right to decide whether others can smoke there. Without the anti-smoking Nazi's telling them what to do.

well we could do the membership thing like salt lake city. that would make all places privet, and allow the property owners the right to allow smoking. most memeberships in salt lake cost $.50. so as a smoker, i would pay $.50 to make every one who doesn't smoke, pay the $.50 to go to a smoking restauants. wow we get hit hard with taxes and then laws, so memeberships are welcome to me.

I'm with Keri -- having "private" dining areas for smokers makes perfect sense. I'd certainly pay to be able to enjoy a cigarette with my meal.

Keri/David - I don't totally disagree with the "private/membership" thing. The problem I see is that you'd have to do the seperate area thing - "smoking or non-smoking, sir" which never seems to work very well... OR you'd have to be "smoke 'em if ya got 'em"... no matter how many kids are sitting in the next booth.

I'm no angry smoker; I just stay the hell outta bars & restaurants.
Of course, I'm a bit of a hermit...

I believe a PRIVATELY OWNED business should have the right to decide for themselves if they want to allow smoking on their premises. If they decided to allow it, no children should be allowed in. Put a sign on the front door to warn potential patrons up front. There wouldn't be any "non-smoking" areas either. If you want to stay away from smoke, don't enter in the first place. There are plenty of non-smoking places out there now. Can't smokers have at least a few places to themselves? Probably not. The do-gooders would want it stopped- even though they've never been to the place in their lifetime. Who's ox gets gored next? Drinkers, gamblers, fat people? YOU?
