#416395 Please vote for SOB's "Firepit Oasis" in Sunny 106 Backyard Makeo...

100

I was going to register and vote, but they wanted a lot of information that I don't necessarily want floating around Pennsylvania ;)
I can't wait to see pictures of the new backyard

Everyone should have a "junk" email account that they can use when they don't want to share private info. That way you can register for all sorts of things without having your real account info immediately sold to every pest on the internet.

At midnight I will make 100 if someone doesn't beat me to it.

 He is still addicted to nicotine but has probably eliminated some of the carcinogens associated with smoking. Allow the man to continue in his delusion that he has "kicked the habit." We all need our delusions.

#413882 Cemetery off limits

Posted by lavender on 12 May 2017 - 09:46 PM

I can only tell you what happened near us here in DuBois. A piece of property  was sold. The new owner blocked the road to a small family cemetery. The family whose relatives were buried there took it to law. The road is now open. Apparently he could not keep them out.




#413778 11-Year-Old Girl Revived By Narcan Who Overdosed On Heroin

Posted by lavender on 12 May 2017 - 01:54 PM

I do know the facts,  I have attended several Narcan trainings, and have been trained to use it.   

You may know the facts about Narcan but you don't know the facts of the case on which you are commenting. You are making statements about who is paying for her care and whether she has taken drugs before and you nor the rest of us have no way of knowing any of this. That is what I am refuting not your expertise on Narcan. You have facts on what Narcan is but how it should be used and paid for is opinion and everyone is entitled to one. I have no problem with you speculating on the payment issue or the girl's drug habits but it is just that and anyone should be allowed to speculate without being told their opinions are "inaccurate." If you can't separate the issues here then I guess you can't but they are separate issues and opinions and facts are two different things.




#413751 Expansion Of PA. Smoking Ban Would Remove Exemptions

There are just too many things that people do as a choice that cost the tax payers money or affect others in adverse ways. How do you pick and choose which ones are to be legislated against? Obesity and diabetics who refuse to control their diet were mentioned. What would you do with people who have a mental illness and refuse to take medication? Without it they can become a threat to society; witness the mass shootings some aimed at children. Should they be forced to take medication by law? Should the homeless be forced into institutions because they are unsightly, smell and can cause problems and safety issues? How about people who bring children into the world knowing that they can't care for them? Some of them even knowingly birth severely handicapped children that are going to cost millions in tax payer money to sustain?  Personally I'd rather face a cigarette wielding smoker than an unmedicated mentally ill person with a gun. Pick and choose. Take away the rights of those who bother me but don't dare step on my rights.

Exactly how I feel even though smoking is gross. I want to keep our individual right to choose and not let the government keep regulating our lives.

Right you are! The government needs to stop micro-managing. Many of these laws that try to control human behavior go bad because they don't consider the ramifications. Either it is taken too far or more trouble is caused by people's natural desire to get what they want. Prohibition worked out well, didn't it? Between people dying from boot leg liquor and mob control of smuggling .........well it did make for some good movies. Let people work things out for themselves. If you don't like smoke go somewhere that smoking is prohibited. It isn't your right to eat in every restaurant or drink in every bar. Let the proprietor decide to whom he wishes to  cater. There are people who like to sit at the bar and drink beer and smoke cigarettes. They have rights too. Maybe we should get rid of strippers so the ladies club can hold meetings in the erstwhile strip clubs. Shouldn't they be able to go into these places without being offended? Why do some people think that they have more "rights" than the rest of the population?




#413603 Expansion Of PA. Smoking Ban Would Remove Exemptions

It is all very well trying to legislate individual prejudices but what happens when the neighbors start to complain about the chickens? Shall they be legislated out of the neighborhood? Maybe the pollen from one of your trees triggers a severe allergy in a neighbor's child. Will you be required by law to remove the tree? Should alcohol be banned because some people can't control their drinking and  become alcoholics?  Smoking is a health hazard but it doesn't cause lung cancer or respiratory ailments in everybody who smokes. Some people do it with impunity, so should they be discriminated against because they have better genes? Should farmers have to stop spreading manure because it nauseates their city folk neighbors who went looking for country living? They have already forbidden peanut butter in some schools because of individual children with allergies. Why not just put all the peanut farmers out of business?  Why not shut down the tobacco growers?

It is a slippery slope legislating behavior that annoys others or causes them discomfort. Soon the government will be telling us how often we must shower so we don't offend others. How about controlling calorie intake so airlines and theaters don't have to deal with patrons who take up more than one seat? Get rid of alcohol and eliminate the drunken driving problem. Take away the guns because they scare part of the population.  I repeat legislation that controls other people's behavior is a great thing; legislation that controls one's  personal behavior is never going to be popular. It's a free country; Let's keep it that way.
