29. yes, oppressive. As a proponent of 'labor' I'd think you'd understand that
don't give me this crap about widows and orphans. People are people. We are tragically flawed creatures. Not automatons. Anti-smoking legislation has killed the bar business, by and large. It should be up to the owner, not the state, what kind of people he wants in his establishment. It is not progressive, it is oppressive. It is the same type of thing as the GOP rejecting gay marriage, just another side of the same coin. Any law that restricts humans from being human is an oppressive law. It is intellectually dishonest to proclaim otherwise.
