FSC sucks, plain and simple. Throw it in the ashtray while I type a few lines and it's out. Ticks me off. Seriously, how many cases of someone
falling asleep and burning up their house have you heard of? I know of none. I'm sure it happens but it's quite rare. Just another way they can put
chemicals we don't need into something. Just like our food supply, full of crap we don't need.
In 2005, I was at the end of my rope with alcohol. For a year or two I would get up and drink a beer if I had one left. Then go to work and put
vodka/gin in my water. Have a beer or three at lunch and a twelve pack at night. Every day for years. I learned how to drink in Las Vegas where the
bars never close and had been a drunk, a bad drunk, for years dating back to the mid '90's. All I really cared about was where my next beer was
going to come from.
I decided one day I had had enough and stopped, August of '05. Never looked back. Rarely have I even had cravings for alcohol, because I changed my
mindset and said I'm done with it, that's it. Because I WANTED to quit, I did.
I have never really wanted to quit smoking because for some reason I enjoy inhaling fire. Hence why I have not stopped. I know the risks but you only
live once and I do what I please and smoking pleases me.
The most ridiculous thing is banning it from bars. What a joke. Go in and drink your tail off, which can be done for days on end in this town - I
know, I've done it - yet you can't have a smoke with it? Insane. At least the laws here are a bit more lax than in other states where the bar can
either close it's food facilities or they can close it off so the smoke can't get into the kitchen. Most bars here you can still smoke in. Not that
it affects me anymore but still it's cool for those that choose to drink.
I think they would have had riots if they truly banned smoking from bars here. It's Las Vegas, you are supposed to be able to kill yourself easily in
Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. once called the habit "suicide by cigarette", yet he didn't die from it. Most people don't. My Mom is in her '70's and my
grand parent's lived into their late '80's, early '90's and smoked for decades. It CAN kill you but the odds of it happening are much less than
what THEY tell you they are.
To hell with them. I'm so sick and tired of being told by TPTB what I can or can't do, I'm ready for it all to hit the fan. I want my rights as a
human being back and am willing to fight for them.
As for taxation, that's also a huge lie. They just want all our money and will do whatever they can to get it from us.
