No smoking - by order
Now New York wants to follow the example of California in banning smoking in bars. The US is fighting a war that is claimed to be in defence of western values. There's not much point in attempting to spread freedom abroad while wiping it out at home. As a New Yorker said:
I don't think that local government should be telling us what we should or shouldn't do with our bodies
He is quite right. Smoking policies should be decided solely by property owners and not by the state. Bring back American freedoms.
