Another Nanny State Smoking Ban Fiasco!
The NewHampshire Underground is spearheading a fight to stop The NH legislature from passing a law to ban smoking in restaurants and bars. (HB 1177)
Jon Maltz says, "I don't smoke, I never have, and I never will. I don't like it, and I don't like being around people doing it. But if someone wants to run a bar for smokers, it isn't my right or the state's right to tell them that they can't do it."
I couldn't agree more. What is WITH this Nanny State that people are trying to create?
(Here is a discussion on the topic that might prove of interest. Scroll down to see Jon's idea of boycotting a restaurant owner who claimed that he need the state to hold his hand to "help him ban" smoking in his own establishment. If this guy wants to ban smoking in his own place what does he need the government's dubious help for?)
I am getting to love these NH Undergrounders!! Go, boys, go!

They did a great job shutting this down.
