Hey I am not a smoker and hate the smell of cigarettes but I'm totally for freedom. It's amazing to me which freedoms we are losing here in America the home of the "free".
I found this sign at a rest stop in Iowa and was appalled. I hate the nasty habit as much as any good Christian should but I love the freedom we as Americans are suppose to own in this good ol' land of ours.
This was a huge open rest area and there was this sign. NO SMOKING on the rest area grounds. I mean come on, is there not enough air? I mean really couldn't they at least have set aside a small area in the back corner for smokers? Was it really necessary to completely outlaw smoking in the great out doors. If you read the sign it's hilarious; you can only smoke in your personal vehicle. No smoke is allowed to escape into the air. Honestly is someone going to be standing there making sure the windows aren't cracked?
Like I said, I'm totally against the sinful practice of smoking but I am so for the personal freedoms we hold so dear in the land of ours. Hey it's a ban on smoking outdoors in Iowa today but tomorrow it'll be a ban on the "offensive" Bible. Hey any personal freedom lost in America, regardless of what it is, is dangerous for us all.
