53. I've been smoking for 53 years and never
asked anyone to pay my hospital bill,because I pay for my insurance.Picking on smokers for second hand smoke in our world of factory pollution is big business way of diverting attention away from them.The tobacco tax is taxation without representation.It is forced on us people of lower income and if we did want to quit the tax should pay for treatment for us to quit.Its like the Kings taxes on the poor people in England that got to be so much they couldn't live on what was left.So they took action against the King.
You don't smoke and thats fine, just leave me the fuck alone!
