It's neat watching someone with their priorities all fucked up rant and wail about the most horrible of afflictions to ever blight our land: the smoker.

Apparently the proposition in california making it *illegal* for certain businesses to allow smoking (how wonderful is that?) is getting big hoorays from people who can think of nothing more evil, damning, damaging, and horrifying than being anywhere near a smoker.

Everyone has their peeves. But acting like Christ delivering the Beatitudes becuase the people of California think that adding more laws to the books is always a good thing (and talking about chopping out a huge chunk of people from your life because they smoke, you good good friend you) makes you out as an ass.
I think we need mailers for people like this who have the fervor, the self righteous anger, the need for change... but such a narrow fucking scope and lack of imagination (becuase their pampered little lives have afforded them the luxury of seeing something like *smoking* as one of the great ills of the world) that they become 'cause-heads'... pointlessly protesting without intent or purpose.

hehehe.. I shouldn't read LJ ..

They need to make it illegal to serve fried food, too. Or meat. Or sell cars... LOTS of people die of cars. Or... oooh.... don't a lot of people die in hospitals?...

Well they're well on their way toward the meat and fried food mentalities. With people bringing lawsuits against fast food chains for making them fat, it's only a matter of time before at least California decides they're illegal.
No fast food (unless it's pesticide free, organic green salads with hydroponically grown organic tomatoes and a cruelty free ranch dressing made of soymilk, soy sourcream, and home grown, non invasive herbs) at all.

The thing about these laws is that they concentrate on the bullshit pollutants and *ignore* the big ones. Like the smog monster that hangs over LA most of the year. Sure, it's a huge cloud of pollutants and an incubator for acid rain, but boy howdy! check out those beautiful sunsets!

I'm sure they aren't shutting down or severely restricting polluting corporations in the state, and they sure as hell aren't promoting mass transit as an alternative to one more individual getting into their car and parking on a highway most of the day.

They only care about the unpopular pollutants and carcinogens.

It's democracy in action... no, honest. Most people really would rather have their kids grow up thinking that the sky is supposed to go from blue at zenith to orange-brown at the horizon, than take the chance of ending up next to the colored people on the bus.
