You are the poster who believes he has the right to control the normal human actions of others. You believe that you can demand that "no one
blow cigarette smoker near me"
No. Not even remotely correct.
First, I said "no one blows cigarette smoke (not smoker) near me" (those are two very different kinds of blowing)
Next, I said not to blow it near me. Now, you and I may have VERY different definitions of "near".
I mean, in my personal space. And this is relative to where I am. If I CHOOSE to go into an establishment, where smoking is permitted, that's on me, I
have to expect to inhale some smoke. It's my choice to suck it up, or leave.
That's far different than someone blowing smoke right at me, and in my personal space (i.e. reach of my arms).
The rest of your tirade is completely imaginary as to what I'm actually saying. Especially as I am actually DEFENDING the rights of smokers, even
though I do not smoke myself.
Dude, I was visiting my mother once, and my uncle and I were outside...remember that word (OUTSIDE)... He was smoking. Another neighbor came outside
just to bitch about it. Seriously? She even threatened to call the cops.
I gave her the number.
The dingbat actually took the bait, and called them (no idea what she told them). They showed, and then told her if she calls again, they will cite
her for making a false report.
Man, read between the lines a bit dude....(and chill out, maybe go outside and have a smoke?).
And as a general rule though, if anything one does, starts to infringe on the rights of another, that's when the problems arise, so yeah, you can
expect that any action (including playing super loud music that makes one's chest vibrate) that impedes on another's life, is possibly abusing said
right. You have to balance out the right of one, vs. the effect on others, and if those others can actually remove themselves from the situation by
