Guest Commentary: No Smoking Legislation

So we have reached yet another Thursday night, and with it another night featuring a guest commentary from one of our regular readers and participants. Jon Smith is at it again, challenging us to take another look at an issue that we have discussed a long time ago. This is an issue that hits somewhat close to home for me. I am not a fan at all of the way that smokers have been treated over the last decade. They fall into the category of “sinners” who get hit with “sin taxes”. Sin taxes are one of those things that simply infuriate me. That society as a whole accepts these types of taxes and legislative maneuvers around smoking points, in my opinion, to the absolute short-sightedness of the American voter. It’s that who law of mutuality thing hitting home again. When you deem it fair to infringe on the rights of one particular group, I have to silently hope that I am around when it becomes you that is in the next group attacked.
