Subby has apparently not heard of the efforts to reduce emissions.

It's almost as if particulates in the air can make breathing more difficult.

Hmm... One of these things has a legitimate and necessary purpose. One does not. Can you guess which is which, subby?

Until those groups are referenced daily by FOX news in between Benghazi tirades, many people will remain unaware of their existence.

You've never heard the words "Prius" or "Cash for Clunkers" have you, Subby?

In my area, mostly in Boston and Cambridge.

Smoke-free campus adjacent the interstate. Yeah!

Yet more nonsense about the impact of man-made pollution, brought to you by the left wing lieberal media.
 
2013-03-23 08:49:02 AM
Don't tempt them, subby.
I'm sure Bloomberg and Feinstein are working on it as we speak.

/if anyone cared, they'd dump money into capacitor development and nuclear energy.
 
2013-03-23 08:49:35 AM
Bloomberg proposed banning cars south of 86th St a few years ago.

Of course, he knows best (riiiiiggghht).
 
2013-03-23 08:49:36 AM
cars are necessary for our current way of life, cigarettes are not.
 
2013-03-23 08:51:20 AM
Oh, and this is nothing new.  There is a reason California has stricter emissions on their cars.

It was not necessary for you to exist.

You had to post a picture of a 'suburban SUV' didn't you.  Of course you did.  Sorry, neither of those has a genuine purpose.

Personally, I wouldn't mind a "no-car zone" in my city.

authoritarian farktards aren't a legitimate or necessary purpose either.

I feel the same way about beer.

Another Government Employee: Oh, and this is nothing new.  There is a reason California has stricter emissions on their cars.


To use non standard refined oil product that causes local spikes in prices so liberals can yell at the evil oil companies when instead they should yell at the politicians who insisted On non standard refined oil?

Knock out punch there, Subby.
 
2013-03-23 09:07:55 AM
My appreciation for smoke-free areas has never been about childhood asthma.
 
2013-03-23 09:08:23 AM
I'm all for electric cars once they sort out the battery issues.

Oh, but don't let THAT fact stop the butthurt.

After being around some recent quitters and their anger issues I have to say both seem to have at least one use... one takes you to the store so you can buy the other to keep from killing everyone around you.
 
2013-03-23 09:17:14 AM
The other day I wrote an app that replaces the words conservatives and liberals with 'the voices in my head', its pretty awesome.  This thread is way more fun to read that way.

/your politics disgust the rest of the world

spending their time thinking 7 rounds for citizens makes a difference to criminals.

Keep pretending there aren't millions of people who were smoking for 20, 30, 40, 50 years before the government put the Nazi stamp of hate upon it. All those years of addiction were biatch-free until recent times.
 
2013-03-23 09:22:28 AM
I don't know why smokers don't all switch to the electronic ones.
 
2013-03-23 09:30:22 AM
submitter did you suck on the tailpipe of a car burning leaded gasoline as a child, or did you just enjoy the flavor of lead in your paint chips.

you would have gotten more, but you used the word Nazi... classic overkill

I was 70 pounds heavier, had type II diabetes, and sky high cholesterol before I started smoking again. My health went to shiat when I stopped. Now my sugar levels are normal, my weight is almost perfect ( I could stand to gain a few pounds), cholesterol is normal, and I eat because I have to. But I have no craving for fatty stuff anymore.

Suck it you judgmental pricks.

We have plenty of air quality and safety regulations for cars.  It's too bad we don't regulate guns as well as we do cars.

Ooh, that would have made for a great addition to the headline.

Because some of the anti-smoking zealots want those banned in the same places normal cigarettes are, which really shows that it isn't about health anymore.

Have you tried electronic cigarettes?

/Not a smoker myself, just saw an article about them in the Economist.

Subby wants lead back in his gas so his IQ would improve.

So it's everyone else's fault you controlled your own diet about as well as you controlled your addiction to nicotine? Man, that cross must be awful heavy.

in California, assault cars with clips that hold more than fifteen rounds have been outlawed by Senator Feinstein, already, subby.
 
2013-03-23 10:19:03 AM
In manhattan, there is a series of apartment buildings built over the highway.

When they did a study some time back, they found that in such buildings among long-term residents, asthma and other respiratory problems were fairly common at the bottom floors, and gradually became less common as you moved up the building.

Oh Christ... another whiny screed from a pansy-assed smoker who can't get over the fact that their habit is viewed as disgusting and moronic by most of the population.

Put on your farking big-boy panties and grow up, subby.

Necessary is an opinion. Oxygen is necessary. Food is necessary. Cars are a luxury. Tobacco is a luxury.

Sounds more like it's anti-smokers who are doing the whining here...
