 OMG! LOL Your post made me look up Ethel Merman's God Bless America recording. You have the right to smoke and I have the right not to have your smoke in my face same as you have the right to keep me from pizzing on your shoes. Swallow your smoke-if it doesn't come out the tube in your throat.

I feel so sad for you that you are FORCED to go certain places to eat, visit or work. Too bad you do not live in the USA where we are free. Wait - I must be in a time warp - the current USA tells us what health insurance to buy, how fast to drive, to wear a helmet, no smoking on private property, no packed lunches for kid, and if you have kids you do not have the ability to take care of we will do it for you. Does not sound much like the USA of the founders.
