    City wants to nip tobacco use in the butt

    First, Brooksville officials cracked down on employees who didn't use deodorant or wear underwear, which sparked debate about whether they were infringing on workers' personal choice.

    Now city officials might crack down on employee tobacco use — both at work and during their personal time — by requiring them to quit smoking after one year. The proposal would also disqualify for employment anyone who admits to the habit.

    During Monday's 5:30 p.m. meeting at City Hall, council members will consider a tobacco policy that forbids smoking or chewing the substance on city property, in city-owned vehicles and personal vehicles that are on city property or are being used for a city function.

    Liberalville.....Land of the Free....

    wow this is a little overboard. While no one should be subjected to smoke unwillingly, the idea of regulating smoking on private time and in cars etc is insane.

    I would have sworn that California would have been first to tell city employees they can't smoke, even on their own time. Guess I was wrong.

    Until cigarettes are outlawed, it is unlawful to fire a worker for smoking on his own time. The fired worker should have an excellent lawsuit.

    Hernando County (of which Brooksville is the county seat) went to McCain in 2008 and Bush in 2004, and their reps are all Republican.

    Wouldn't exactly call it "Liberalville".

    Looks bout even. I would post the city council parties but they dont list them. But with 98% of blacks voting for liberals one would guess the black members are all democrats.

    Can understand why you're upset. Liberals are kicking conservatives' asses!

    I'm left handed, so I put my belt on backwards from right handed people. I hope the gubmint never notices, I'd hate to have to change after 52 years.

    In Ohio it's illegal to smoke in public places. I was at a Dimmu Borgir show a year ago and these guys next to me fired up a joint. They passed it around for about a minute and I was like "Fuckit! The bouncer's right there and not sayin shit" So I fired up a cigarrette and after about 3 puffs the bouncer was on me like an avalanche. "Put that out sir!" Of course I did not mention the comparison cause I am not a rat but still. That was obvious bullshit. Pot is illegal and gets more leniancy than fuckin' cigarrettes do.
