I think I'd probably be better off not discussing this topic. Yeah, I'm a smoker, and not even remotely embarrassed.
Just wait till the gov't comes for your favorite vice. You'll be signing a different tune.
I'm looking forward to it when they do. The day will come when enough revenue isn't being generated from all the fees/penalties on smoking and the gov will have to target a new group of people. Hopefully that will wake people up and they'll realize the whole collective thing isn't really what it's cracked up to be.
We should all write our reps and give them a great big thanks for keeping us safe from ourselves. I hope they set their sights on that annoying clown who keeps shoving burgers down my throat.
Then maybe they could mandate a timer on my tv because it's keeping me from exercising. I think a fine for not having a gym membership would be in order as well.
I'd also like a breathalyzer installed next to my bed so they now I'm not drinking too much.
And maybe they'll revisit some of those old puritan laws and make sure none of us engage in promiscuity. I wouldn't want to burden society with my irresponsible habits.
And before any of you say it's up to the insurance company, it's not, because they have to make up the money they're losing due to this law. Because costs hav,e and will continue to go up, they will be forced to make their losses up.
I believe our pres is a smoker, good thing he's exempted from his own law. I'd hate to see the guy live under the same rules as the rest of us plebeians.
