Yes, it is true that smoking may be legal now. That decision was initially made before it was known how harmful it is. If however, it was just discovered today that tobacco could be smoked, then it would quickly be made illegal. The risks are too great.View Thread
Tobacco smoke bothers me the most. Smoking is not allowed within 50 feet of the building where I work and smokers are no longer being hired. Still, if a smoker has been in the elevator, then the smell lingers even after they are gone and it takes my breath away when I get in. It is worse than if they flatulated while in the elevator.View Thread
I do not get it. How is using the expressions "F-word" or "F-bomb", or writing "f**k", any different than using or writing the actual word? We all know what it means. It makes no sense to me.View Thread
There are people who still smoke? I thought that they would all be dead by now. The ones who survived must be very old. We have been notified repeatedly since 1966 that "Cigarette Smoking May be Hazardous to Your Health ". Anyone who missed this message should be confined to their own home, where they can smoke as much as they like. If they die before they reach retirement age, then that will take some of the pressure off the Social Security system.View Thread
Some feel that all human lives (worldwide, not just American lives) are equal. They also feel that for everyone to be treated equally, some of the wealthier individuals (and countries) may have to pay more and do with a little less.
Others are only concerned with healthcare for themselves and their own family, and certainly not for anyone who is not an American (especially if they have to help pay for their care).View Thread

We are teaching them that when they become adults, then they should continue the cycle and hit their own children when they misbehave. They will say, "This is the way that I was brought up, and if it was good enough for me, then it is good enough for my kid as well."View Thread
