A Churchill Makes a Better Line

I will not smoke them in a car, I will not smoke them in a bar...

Bill Pushed to Stop Drivers From Smoking

There comes a point where, rather than create a new law, I wonder if our adept lawmakers are better off rethinking who we are giving the privilege of driving to....

I fully understand that driving a car is literally diving a several ton missile, but making smoking while driving illegal- come on. Heck, I even agree with the cell phone law- I do not like it, but I agree.

Although nonfatal, perhaps we could reduce the number of people bumping into each other on the street if we outlawed walking while chewing gum.

I have had a couple of accidents in my life as a driver, and NONE of them have had to do with the fact that I am a smoker (or drinker). I greatly enjoy smoking while driving, and the thought of it being illegal for safety reason makes me laugh out loud.

This is not a Big Brother issue, nor a rights issue, this is governmental stupidity at it very best.

If drivers are having trouble smoking and driving, I am going to go out on a limb and say, maybe they should not be driving at all. And, maybe they shouldn't walk and chew gum either.

Reports say that the law has little or no chance of passing, but I urge New Jersey lawmakers to focus other concerns, perhaps education or even just commonsense, in stead of wasting the taxpayer's money and resources on frivolous laws like this.

Bars... now cars?

Habanos, the dictator's choice!

Saddam Smoking Cuban Cigars in Jail

Not fair! I think that US Law should carry over into a US Military bases, atleast for ruthless dictators that are in cusdody.

If a criminal like Saddam can smoke in a US Military base, shouldn't US Citizens be able to smoke in their homes.

This doesnt add up to me...

This is my dream.... A Smoking Club and Cigar Shop

Smoking Club & Cigar Shop

If you have to sign up to see this link, I appologize- I hate that.

I visited a shop like this near my home town, but it was a joke... One know-it-all teenager that kept his ash on the cigar to the point of sillyness (his fater owned the place), a woman that looked like the secratery, and two guys that looked completely shot out.

The lockers in the back, a handful of respectable gentleman casually enjoying the good life. In today's world, this is what people need to escape.

My Smoking Club will include:
  • The finest selection of premium cigars, focusing on limited production hard/impossible to find smokes
  • The best conditions to keep cigars, with rental lockers available
  • A cigar roller (most likely myself) willing to inform cigar smokers.
  • A casual yet elegant atmosphere, appealing to specific smokers that want the best
  • A computer with internet, for client use
  • A couple of gaming tables
My dream is to open up a shop like this, and give it a club feel. If things go well for me, in 10 years I will be there, and I hope to see you there with me.
