Good grief lady, get over yourself. Go smoke outside or at your house. It is your right to smoke but I shouldn’t have to breathe it in. Not everyone wants to smell your smoke or end up with smoking wrinkles or bad skin from second hand smoke. If I go out and enjoy myself at a bar (which is very rare), I want to be able to stay there without leaving in 5 minutes because I can’t breathe. Have some common sense Ms. Heck.

You still have the right to smoke, just not in public places where it would take away the rights of others to breathe air.
It’s actually quite amazing the drop in emergency room visits for things like asthma and heart attacks in cities in ND that already instituted the ban.

You do not have to Breathe it in fellow commentors. She never said she smoked. She is a business owner, likely of a bar, who knows. But I believe what she is saying is that the person opening the business should be able to decide whether or not it is smoking or non-smoking. No one FORCES anyone to go into a bar. No one Forces anyone to work there. It is a choice. And many many people who make that choice have been making that choice and living up into their 80′s or so. Still smokin’. However, I do not go into many bars myself but I do have a question. Do I or others have the option of not being hit by the drunk driver who had 1 or 12 too many before driving home? Nope, I surely do not. And that is Instantly fatal and/or life changing. How about being hit by the teen texter? or the elderly person with alzheimers or bad vision? Again. Nope. It really bothers me that E-cigs were included in this. good one. And hey, yeah, take those ashtrays away so the cig butts can go on the ground instead of in the ashtray.

Businesses use to be private property. They are now controlled by the state. Owners may have deeds to their property ostensibly giving them property rights, but the heavy burden of taxation and control, ratifies the reality of the incremental movement towards socialism, which by formal definition, is a society where the state owns all, controls all, and uses force and violence to ensure its control.

Finally, another person with some common sense and a realistic look at this country! Here Here, Anarcho-Capitalist!
