    Funny how many marijuana pass posters came down on the side of curtailing smokers rights. What you sow, you reap:

    Every person who advocates a socialist medical system for the US (we already have a quasi-socialist system) needs to read articles like this and think real hard. (And I would say the same to republicans who think government funding of faith-based charities is a good thing) You need to realize that your favored political people will not always be in control of this program. But yes, you can guarantee that there will be much nannying by the state, enough to piss off people on all sides of politics.

    Havent i been saying this all along. I keep saying how people want to punish these child molesters is going to comeback on us. They want to tag and electronically track child molesters now cause child molesters are bad. Whose to say 10 years from now they won't want to track everyone because everyone has the "potential" to be bad?

    We need to stop telling other people what to do and live our own lives with as little Federal government interference as possible.

    We can't--they need to take our money. Like they are giving Texas property owners a break on the backs of cigarette smokers.

    I agree that this is an inappropriate use of governmental power. Seems someone needs to start an action to get it stopped.
