Do Lemmings Smoke
I watched the Assembly hearings on the proposed and soon to be anti smoking law (thank you WiEye & DVR).
I'm absolutely blown away that virtually none of the Republican amendments to the bill were voted for by any Democrats. Exemptions for hotels, the VA, separate rooms, not one idea moved any Dems.
It was what is totally wrong with politics today. Even smokers in the Assembly showed no empathy. I'm seeing some changes being made. Smokers are only willing to take so much and kicking them off the bus may be the last straw.
