Well, well, well...Three things are now official:
1) Our officials in L.A. loathe their smoking constituents.
2) They don't resemble anything remotely close to being liberty loving Americans.
3) You can't trust them.
Funny how earlier in the year our lovely council-members voted to ban smoking at all outdoor venues/establishments, while exempting venues for those 18 and over. That was supposed to be a "compromise". You can never compromise with tyrants, which is what they are. Case in point: Here they are, less than a year later, implementing even more draconian measures, when clearly they tried to fool us into believing that their intention was to be "fair". Bullshit.
How many more jobs will we lose now? How many more restaurants and clubs will shut their doors? If people do not rebel against this illegal infringement upon smokers' right to assemble, then I am afraid that we're all in trouble in this country.
As I always say, this is about a lot more than smoking.
