    First Read - Senators: Ban smokeless tobacco use in MLB
    From NBC's Ken Strickland

    Two Democratic senators are asking baseball commissioner Bud Selig to ban all tobacco use in the sport, specifically citing smokeless products.

    Sens. Dick Durbin of Illinois and Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey are suggesting that Selig push for a ban as part of the negotiations in the players' collective bargaining agreement later this year.

    Dear Dick and Frank,


    Fuck you, you arrogant, self righteous assholes.

    Please leave the raising of our kids to us, the actual parents, and get back to fixing the economy and working on getting people jobs.

    Sincerly,

    Two, don't make me shove my Thumbs up your ass

    Screw em! I chewed for 20 years and have been quit 5.5 years now. I don't ever want to do it again by personal choice. I'm a libertarian. If people want to chew, it's their own damned business. If the MLB wants to ban it, fine. I'd wear a tshirt and shorts to work if my employer would let me, but he won't. The government needs to tend to their business and their business isn't telling people or businesses how to live healthy lives.

    Perhaps, they should stick to serious business like how to run a country.

    Same here, dipped copenhagen for twenty years and decided to just quit last year. I fully agree, if people want to chew, dip, it's their own damned business. It doesn't bother me at all.

    I swear I read it somewhere that THAT is what we pay them to do.

    Imagine taking moral guidance from politicians. :lol::lol:
