Smoking Ban From the Socialist Republic of Illinois

Welcome to the Socialist Republic of Illinois!

On January 1, Illinois became a smoke free state. Now, I’m not a smoker, but this law is just the kind of thing our governor wants – more control of everyone.

I get the idea of making smoking sections/areas that will allow others in public places to not have to be subjected to the smoke. But no smoking in bars – where is the sense in that? If you don’t want to be subjected to smoke in these type of environments, don’t go there or don’t work there. Simple right. I guess not according to the State of Illinois.

Making things like this the law of the land smacks the founders in the face. This is the type of socialist policy I would expect in Communist China or the former USSR. What’s next, a ban on drinking in bars? (credit for this idea goes to my patriot father)

A great perspective can be found at

Of course, this is just my opinion.
