Ind. Senate panel rejects proposed smoking ban | The Indianapolis Star | indystar.com

The Senate Committee on Public Policy voted 8-1 to snuff out the bill, which would have prohibited smoking in most workplaces across the state, including restaurants.
However, it exempted bars, casinos, nursing homes and fraternal clubs.


Apparently, some from the existing "coalition" of I hate smokers and smoking on private property thought that the bill did not go far enough. Amanda Estridge, the Indiana government relations manager for the American Cancer Society is one of them. She stated that the bill did not go far enough. Of course, what else would we expect from such a tyrannical organization. The bill is now dead. Now go find a cure for cancer, ok?

  1. 'However, it exempted bars, casinos, nursing homes and fraternal clubs'.

    This doesn't make sense. Smoking is still prohibited in these types of establishments though?

  2. No, smoking is allowed in all of the above venues, and still would be exempt if the bill had passed. Hence, either way, one could still smoke in bars, casinos, nursing homes, and fraternal clubs. It appears that it would have only applied to restaurants and that wasn't good enough for the ACS....of course.

  3. And of course if the bill had passed the anti smokers would then take their hatred to the next stage and that would mean bars, casinos, nursing homes and freternal clubs would be forced to go smokefree.

    The anti smoker nut jobs don't sleep, and neither should we.

  5. They do it one small step at a time and they tailor their campaign to each geographic area depending on the type of thinking most common within each area. Some areas being easy push-overs, they just come in and ban it everywhere, usually not outdoors at first, then outdoors a year later. Other places they try getting it banned only where they might make an in-road at first, then tiptoe step by step leading to full outright indoor banning everywhere, then outdoor several years later. They use the places where they can do it completely and quickly as examples of "success" and "normality" as a con-trick on those areas more resistant. Along with the smoking bans is created a general intolerance for all human individuality and liberty which paves the way for their ultimate goal, which is total enslavement on all counts, but with the majority brainwashed into thinking it "won't affect them" - until it does - by which time then it is too late.

  6. I know...Living in California, I have witnessed the "incremental, bit by bit" strategy.
