House Majority Leader Hugh Holliman filed another infringement law on Wednesday morning. It can be found here: H.B. 2: Prohibit Smoking in Public & Work Places Act. This bill would enact strict rules to ban smoking in more places than ever before in N.C. I’ve written about this in the past on other sites but after reading over the article on WRAL, I can see that there is at least one person in our government that feels EXACTLY as I do. I’ve spoken these exact feelings in the past. “I have the right to choose where I go. What I don’t want to do is tell the person who has invested $1 million in his restaurant how he has to run the restaurant, what his rules have to be, what he has to allow and what he can allow,” said Sen. Eddie Goodall, R-Mecklenburg. (WRAL) Ok, here is where my pity ends. You see Mr. Holliman has battled twice with lung cancer. I am sorry for that Mr. Holliman. I am also sorry that your sister died of the same. To me that says its probably more genetic than smoking but either way, I am very sorry you’ve been through all of that. I truly am. “Holliman said he has experienced the danger of secondhand smoke firsthand – he believes it caused his two bouts with lung cancer and the death of his sister from the disease. Barnhart said his motivation is also personal.” (WRAL) Did you see that I highlighted and italicized that one word above? Ok, I will say this and hope not to offend too much. This is ignorance talking. We all know smoking can kill you, cause Cancer, and just plain stink. I’ve dealt with it in my personal life as well however, this is ignorance.
