Tonight I found a bar that allows smoking?
It’s attached to a Chinese restaurant.
Strange, I thought the smoking Nazis had wiped out this particular form of freedom.
It could, if it wasn’t for the smoke, become one of my favorite places.
Only two kinds of draft beer — bud and bud light (yuck) — and only a half dozen varieties of bottled beer.
(Not a problem considering I gave up beer and facebook for lent.)
Just shocked me. And reminded me how much I don’t like smoke.
But as a Little L Libertarian, that decision should be left to the owner. Patrons and workers are free to seek other venues.

Puff Away in Paley Park!

*** begin quote ***
Though Hitler-admirer Nazi Bloomberg banned all smoking in public outdoor parks in Nazi York City, there is one small outdoor park where one can still sit back and enjoy a fine cigar: Paley Park. Why? Because Paley Park is a privately-owned park built by the late head of CBS, William S. Paley. Paley, a former smoker, believed that smoking was a God-given right, so he made sure that smoking was allowed on what is effectively his private property.

I think we need to throw Gooferment out of our personal lives!
Smoking is just the tip of the iceberg.
Guns, marriage, professional licenses, taxis, flood insurance, mortgage guarantees, “too big to fail”, … …
All areas of our life that should be off limits to Gooferment action.
