In my younger days I was wild and crazy. I had my brushes with the law and I pursued any number of illicit activities. By my early 30's I evened out and became a good citizen. I got married, built a business, bought a house etc. I employ about 50 people and I might add that I create a good place for people to work and that I deeply care for my employees. I pay my taxes (without cheating), I raise money for several charities and I always vote. I have not hit anyone in years and I do my best to treat other folks with respect. Given all this why the f**k do I get treated like a criminal for trying to smoke a cigar. My God, they are passing laws against smoking in bars! It is not like I am only becoming aware of this, it has been coming for a while and it will only get worse. What a bunch of lilly livered, liberal, misbegotten, wussie bastards! The criminals, the drug dealers, child molesters and general low life scumbags are psychoanalysed and excuses are made, but God help you if you light up in a bar in Boston. Now thats real crime! The same mentality that does not believe in the existence of evil and will explain away the most heinous acts wants to rob me of my own personal responsibility. To me this is all about personal rights and personal responsibility. These all knowing, all compassionate bleeding hearts want to protect us all from ourselves. Since criminals are just victims of their environment and not responsible for their actions we must not be too harsh on them. Lets take away firearms so that so no one will be shot, it must be the guns fault cause it can't really be the criminals responsibility. Lets fine people for not wearing seatbelts since they are too feeble minded to decide for themselves. And of course those pathetic and pitiable individuals who work in bars cannot possibly have enough intelligence to make valid decisions about the environment that they choose to work in so lets decide for them. No smoking in bars. Next they will not be allowed to serve alcohol. Man, I have had it with this crap. I think it is time to start stockpiling cigars and weapons cause they'll be coming for my smokes next and I am not going to give them up without a fight.
