The Nanny statist nitwit of NYC and his council of clowns has upped the age for buying tobacco products to 21. You cannot discriminate based on sex. You can't do it over race, religion or skin color, but age discrimination is all right with these assholes.
I don't smoke. OK, I'm a smoker, but I have not had a cigarette in over thirty years. Its a filthy habit. Your cloths stink your breath stinks, its hell on your lungs. Your vehicle will reek from the odor, it will linger in your house. You risk emphysema, cancer, heart disease, and a ton of other ailments if you smoke. Guess what, its still your choice.
I think these idiots got their brain cell warped from too much Devo, "you have freedom of choice. You want freedom from choice". is their motto, and damn it, they are bound and determined to force you to obey.
We need to pack this asshole and all his gang of goofs up and ship them to Cuba. Bloomy, should have to live under authoritarian rule for a decade or three before he is allowed to tell anyone how to live.
Sure, Fidel has never imposed a smoking ban, and I do believe a cigar graced his face for many decades. All the horrors of smoking, and the guy who most needed to die cheated it. Oh well, we need to have a bad example to point to. Too bad we have so many, one is enough. The world would be a better place if control freaks like Bloomy, Rhambo, and Obambi were kept away from power like kids are kept away from candles.
Children are cute, but if the little bundle of wonder is anything, it is a tyrant. They are self centered, demanding, and if they were adult sized, they would be a serious problem. Consider children, then compare them to these statist nannies. Is there any difference? Besides the fact you can confine an eighteen month old to his crib?
