You obviously haven't been to Texas. Good luck with that buddy, you may as well try to take their guns.

the no smoking in public venues was one of the greatest things that could have happened. I love breathing fresh air!!! talk about a freedom taken away from me whenever I wanted to go out to eat, or out to the bar or anything of the like.

There is no statewide smoking ban in Texas, it failed to pass- twice if memory serves.

I really don't give a **** about what other people eat/drink/smoke. IF they want to, that's fine with me- I'm not interested in controlling the freedoms of others when it comes to legal activity.

They're not dictating how much you can drink, as you can buy two sodas.

So its not an issue unless you want to hold up the hem of your skirt at everything and anything.

Dictating what businesses can do in an attempt to regulate consumer behavior is just as bad.
