|We vote 3rd party and have an equal disdain for Democrats and Republicans alike.
We think most laws should be discarded. We don't really care what Eminem is saying on his album and have no plans of lobbying Washington to try to make him play nice.

When I first read this the other day, I was : as I tried to figure out what this might mean. But today, I think I understand.
My dh smokes cigarettes. He has for as long as I have known him and probably since before he was even in this country (a long long time). He has NEVER smoked in the house, or our car. I have asthma, but has been very careful of his smoking even before that.
Anyway, we were at an outdoor park today. My dh went over by the porta potties to smoke after lunch. A daycare staff member on the other side of the park started getting her kids to chant that my dp was going to give them cancer due to Second Hand Smoke. When did the Surgeon General EVER state that one could get SHS from being outdoors I ask you? Anyway, it was harrassment, and she was teaching those kids how to bully. I was :
And now I know a little about smokers rights I think. Up here it is illegal to smoke inside buildings that are open to the public (including bars), but the "outdoors" are not limited in this way.
BTW: I have read quite a few comments on this thread about sushi. Let me just say that sushi can come in a variety of types. Not all include raw fish (in fact, I don't think I have eaten very many with raw fish- most of them are veggie). I am pretty sure that sushi is defined as food rolled with rice. The cucumber ones are quite delicious. Sashimi is the word for thinly cut raw fish. So one can avoid raw fish, but still enjoy sushi. I hate that sushi gets such a bad rap. Seriously they are a finger food that can be quite delicious- and pretty healthy I think.
