Post-Voting Blues

It's a week after the elections and most of my top candidates lost. I seriously think I jinx candidates by supporting them. My only bright spot was that Crawford got voted out of the city county at large spot. The man voted worse than any liberal and called himself a Republican. The biggest issue was voting to rescind the rights of business owners in making decisions about their own businesses (a.k.a. the smoking ban). I thought the Constitution guaranteed such rights but I must have been mistaken.

As a consolation prize, please contemplate this picture from the past.

Thanks for making me feel better.

The issue with the smoking ban, as I see it, has more to do with whether second-hand smoke is a risk to public health and well-being. If it is, then doesn't government have a responsibility to protect the public's well being?

Personally, having the smoking and ns areas separated has worked fine for me, but I don't get all riled up about the ban, either.

Oh yeah, the monster pills totally protect people from the risks of second-hand smoke! I forgot all about them!

Yep, personally I like not having to smell smoke when I go out to eat. But the issue isn't about what I like, it's about the rights of private ownership as set forth in the founding articles of our country. Welcome to the nanny-government where they know what is best for you!

Some cities are outlawing certain kinds of fats. It won't be long before they decide that certain kinds of music are a public health issue and only politically-approved tunes will be available. I wish I were joking but I don't really have a sense of humor.

Some cities have already banned music by fat artists that smoke. Try to get anything by Van Morrison, I dare you.
