NYC Wants to Mandate a No-Smoking Ban in Peoples’ Homes
Welcome and thank you for stopping by. Please be aware and advised, this is a CONSERVATIVE BLOG. Here is some information and my rules:
1) I do not like Liberal Ideology;
2) Conservatives have the voice of reason on my blog;
3) I will delete any comments that are abusive, non-related to the “blog theme” and not debated in a civil manner;
4) I welcome input from all walks of life. However, this is my blog and I will make the “ultimate” decision on any/all comments.
I encourage “civil” discussion. We may not agree on “ideology”. However, we can agree on “respect” and at least listening to different perspectives. Thank you for visiting!

The community spy groups get a $10,000 bounty for their efforts. The bounty is coming out of a grant, in other words, our tax money.
This is ripe for corruption to say nothing about the whole stealth factor being unethical, sneaky, and communistic. It pits neighbor against neighbor and it demonizes people.
But don’t worry, it is for the common good.
I’ve never smoked in my life and I don’t like being around cigarettes, but what right does anyone have to tell someone what they can do in their own home? Did our Bill of Rights disappear? Can’t Mayor Bloomberg look up our inherent rights on the Internet?
Did anyone doubt the government would enter our homes? Seriously, did you doubt it?
In mid-November, the New York Times reported that more landlords are demanding that new renters promise not to smoke in their homes. Most are grandfathering in present tenants.
Kenbar Management’s new project at 1510 Lexington Avenue which opened this month bans smoking in all 298 units, in addition to private and shared terraces. You can’t even smoke outside, not even on the sidewalk around the building. You would think smokers were spreading sarin gas. Actually the leftist PR is great and they make smoking sound as dangerous.
The NYC Health Department produced a study that indicates 57% of new tenants might possibly have been exposed to secondhand smoke. That’s a study you can hang your hat on.
Kenbar is a private company and can do what they want but the government doing it is something altogether different. They want to intrude on our personal lives, especially now that they have put themselves in charge of our healthcare.
Public housing throughout the country is being encouraged to ban smoking and they are doing it.
Laws are being passed against smoking. For example, all apartments and condos in Richmond, California must ban smoking by law.
San Francisco has banned smoking but won’t extend the ban to pot.
Marijuana has been legalized in two states and is ignored in others while smoking is verboten. The fact that marijuana is a gateway drug is meaningless to the leftists.
Disney banned smoking in film which is rich since no one is talking about banning vulgar and violent movies and video games.
The left bans what they don’t like and the rest of us have no say in the matter. Is this really what people want? What will they ban next? The fact that many on the far left hate Conservatives, Republicans, Christians, religion, morality, salt, sugar, McDonald’s, baby formula, fuel oil and gas, et al should send shivers down your spine.
I don’t like being in the position of supporting smoking and I certainly don’t want to promote it but telling people what they can do in their own home is just wrong.
