Lawyer: Take Kids Away From Smoking Parents


Should children be taken from parents who smoke?

That’s the astounding recommendation from John F. Banzhaf, a George Washington University law professor who claims that more than 6,000 kids die every year due to secondhand smoke. Speaking at a family law convention in Washington, D.C. on Monday, Banzhaf said it was up to lawyers to save the children.

“We, as attorneys, probably have greater power than other professionals to right wrongs and to change society for the better, because we can use the tremendous power of the law for the public good rather than just to benefit paying clients,” Benzhaf said. “And you, as family attorneys, can and should be using the great power of law to right serious wrongs being done to children.”

According to Benzhaf, attorneys in the family law arena should use every available legal avenue to prohibit smoking in foster homes and to deny child custody rights to parents who smoke in their homes and cars. He further encouraged them to take on the law directly by pressuring politicians to enact policies aimed at protecting kids from secondhand smoke.

A Delicate Balance

When it comes to totalitarian propaganda, nothing’s more influential than “what about the children?” pleas. Conservatives can be highly susceptible to this argument, and it’s not hard to see why. Individual liberty is one thing, but should parents have the right to put their children in obvious jeopardy? Don’t the children have rights of their own?

It’s not a black/white issue. Even deeply-religious conservatives are appalled when some whackadoo lets their child die from an easily-treatable condition. Few Americans of any political stripe are out there fighting to abolish child abuse laws. We all recognize that the government has a legitimate interest in protecting those who cannot protect themselves.

And that’s why we should be careful when it comes to these proposals. Liberal fascists know human psychology all too well, and they won’t hesitate to exploit it for their own motives – motives that have very little to do with child welfare. The line between government responsibility and overreach is subtle at times, especially when it comes to parental rights. You can see it in Banzhaf’s proposals. At one point, he says emergency room physicians should report parents who cause in their children smoke-related ailments like allergies and bronchitis. That’s sensible enough, if the link is well-founded. But then he throws in this business about using a parent’s smoking habits to determine child custody disputes. Which is the very antithesis of sensible.

Before you say, well, nothing is more paramount than the health and safety of our children, just remember that liberals have some funny ideas about how children should be raised. Some interesting ideas about harm, as well. They may be able to sell this secondhand smoking thing, but what about parents who aren’t teaching their children to reduce their carbon footprint? Or parents who teach their children that they must remain their current gender for their entire lives? Or parents who expose their children to something truly disgusting…something horrifying…like the Bible?

You gotta watch ’em. That’s all.

      The Cold War jas been over for a ling time.

      Every other modern, indistrialized nation has some form of national health care. America is the only country which allows people to die, simply because they cannot afford to buy health care.

      Is that something that makes you proid to be American?

            And your use of the up-side flag tells me all I need to know about you !!

          3. Paula says

            What are you talking about? Flying the American flag upside down is an officially recognized signal of distress.

          4. rocky says

            Oh… sorry about that . It was that I was just viewing a crowd of MX’s doing that… and it had no thing to do with being in distress.

          5. Paula says

            In these times it is difficult to know who is doing what to whom or why. Is MX the lovely spoiled socialist known as the Millennial Generation?

            Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted. Vladimir Lenin

            yeah and you are a moron who know nothing about the American flag! This nation is truly in distress! We are being run by losers and scum who support our enemies! It is time true Americans run scumbags like you and your commie friends out of the country. I am not opposed to using force on shit bags like you!

            Calm down…calm down… You and I are on the same page… absolutely !!
            Didn’t understand your use of a international distress signal … but , yep… I now see where your coming from. You have a point.

          8. Tricia Harris says

            And just how are you such an authority on who Michael Dennewitz is and not have him confused with someone else of the same name? You liberals need to go crawl back into your caves with your Marxist/Socialist/Communist thinking and get the hell out of our lives!

          9. Michael Dennewitz says

            Tricia, don’t! ! Don’t waste your time.. This could well be a true assessment of that 19 yo dude, but I think everyone on this site knows by now that I’M soon to be 72 and a Vietnam vet. Whoever or whatever that is, it’s almost hard to believe that “it’s ” not retarded. Ignore, ignore, ignore..

          12. Mark Stephen Rozell Sr. says

            If this stupid bitch couldn’t “cut N paste” (if it even is a bitch), she/he/it would go crazy.. Always posting something about a young lad with the same last name. A KID ! Shit’s really getting old. I’M soon to be 72, a Vietnam vet and I ignore the posts for the most part, but doesn’t the shit get old after a while???

          16. gdfairy says

            always a possibility that the young man has/had a girl friend just months away from 18, and one night they may have gotten carried away, Daddy isn’t happy so he slapped the boyfriend with a sexual assault charge. I wasn’t there, I don’t know the full story, and certainly am NOT in any position to throw stones. Just saying AKLady isn’t near as smart or as tolerant as she/he/it believes itself to be!

            Apparently that ‘internet connection’ doesn’t make you as smart as you think you are.

      2. Ron Long says

        AKLady, we used to have the best public health care system in the world, remember? Then the socialists moved in and forced the affordable care act down our throats. How well is that working out? If you think that the health care system is so much better in say Canada or Great Britton, go live there for a while and see how wonderful it is. And then I think you will realize why they come to America to get health care,

        1. AKLady says

          We have never had the “best public health system in the world”.
          We have always had a private, for profit health system.
          A health system in which many people died because they could not buy health care.
          A health systen in which may people became 100% disabled to work, because they coul dnot buy health care.
          We no feed, clothe, house and provide medi cal care for thos people — paid for with our tax dollars.

            DNC and George Soros both pay the exorbitant sum of 25 cents per post to these lemmings.

          7. Paula says

            I read it was 0.08 cents per comment. That’s why they don’t stop with their commie-liberal rhetoric! I’m guessing they have a list of retorts they can use.
            Ever notice they never get mad? They seem to take insults calmly. And they keep going and going and going! And it’s usually only one,sometimes two. Makes you wonder why one uber liberal comes to play in our sandbox. IF I could stomach it, I’d like to go in a commie-liberal blog and harass them.

          8. ABO says

            Won’t happen, Paula. you are obviously not a worthless parasite with nothing better to do than sit in the recliner all day and post incessant sewage. They are illiterate idiots who are given a set of ‘talking points from DNC or Soros, possibly others and they sit and post all day and in some cases all night for their 8 cents or 25 cents per post and contribute absolutely nothing of any value to society. I tried posting conservative remarks on several liberal sites, no foul language or off color remarks and I was immediately banned from the sites. Media Matters was the guickest to act and gave no explanation whatsoever. At least some of the others, notably Huffington Post, made up a little story as to why I was being thrown out.As we are all aware liberals care nothing for the truth or anyone else’s opinion so no surprises there.

          9. Mary Brumley says

            I have thought about doing just that, also. But, my lack of PC might just drive the Liberals further into insanity. We don’t need that.

            AKLady – you are obviously as stupid as stupid can possibly get, and have never lived in a country with socialized medicine! Waiting times are WEEKS NOT MINUTES to see a doctor. The government decides when you are too old not to be treated – and because you are so incredibly ignorant, your precious Obamacare says just that – when you hit 70, the government will decide if you should be treated are not. I hope you are nearing 70 and reaching that magic number so that some government official will tell YOUR doctor that you can’t have Knee replacement surgery or bypass surgery because YOU ARE TOO OLD! This is what socialized medicine does – and you are too stupid to also know this is why so many older people from Canada and Europe come over here for their surgeries – because the socialized medicine in their countries have told their doctor’s they can’t have it! And by the way, Eisenhower NEVER tried to get some form of socialized medicine, any more than President Reagan did. You are so full of the LIBERAL Propaganda, it amazes me that you are able to get up and get dressed without the government telling you when to get up and what to wear!!! If that is what you want, then LEAVE America because WE DO NOT WANT OR NEED SOCIALIZED MEDICINE!

          13. Michael Dennewitz says

            You see Tricia, it worked! “IT” got a rise out of you, as “it” strives to do with everyone who is sucker enuf to reply.. The best way NOT to get your blood pressure up is to ignore “it!:

          18. glenn398 says

            Mac am sure if Hillary gets elected she will continue to blame anything that goes wrong on the Bushes.

          19. Mark Stephen Rozell Sr. says

            If we deport all the illegal immigrants that our government so proudly sponsor then we could have free health care. Our government GIVES out jobs, health care, loans, food, housing, land, and a host of other program givenes that a natural born citizen will NEVER get. And they have always done that both Democrate and Republican. I’m praying as I always have that SOMEBODY would become our President that might actually do something for the AMERICAN PEOPLE. Is that DONALD TRUMP? Is he the one I’ve been praying for all these yrs. He’s not Democrate, he’s not a Republican he’s not even a politician. He is a man for the REAL PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY. He’s Ben called a bully and everything else. I think he’s GOD sent. He’s winning at every turn. God please protect Donald Trump from those that mean him harm. Amen.

Until we put them in check our health care will fail just like the VA which is ran by criminal democrats.

          28. meangreenMarine says

            The VA is a Government-run health care system for real veterans and far too many are either refused treatment or they wait for long periods of time for treatment, many of them dying during the far too long wait! We’ve seen the debacle of Obama Care! What makes you think that ANY Government Run Health Care System would ever provide competent, timely and cost effective health care?

          29. mac12sam12 says

            Of course we have a profit healthcare system. Should doctors go to school for 15 years and work for nothing? DUH!

        5. glorybe2 says

          No, you were told we had the best health care but it was a lie. The numbers just don’t bear out the notion of quality health care in America. things like the number of people who die from hospital induced infections are not good in the US. Children dying at birth also are way too high in the US. And then we come to a really huge problem : People who are denied health care over money. The same is true of education. Our kids tests very poorly compared to other industrialized nations. These are things that are measured and not matters of opinion.

          1. Ron Long says

            Allrighty then, how is that national health care working out for those poor souls in Venezuela? Cuba? How about England where wait times to see a Doctor run into weeks, or never, just like our Government ran Veterans Health Care system. The health care system we used to have gave us cures and treatments for for Small Pox, Polio, Diphtheria, Yellow Fever, Malaria, Typhus, Whooping Cough, Tuberculous, shall I go on? None of those diseases were ever solved by a government ran health system. And for those who were denied health care due to money never heard about St Jude, or the Shriner’s? UCLA Med Center, or UCSD Health Center? The lie about the state of health care in our country was foisted upon us by the Democrats who shammed through the Affordable Health Care Act in the middle of the night. That is what is destroying the state of Health Care in this country. Socialism never works out. It only destroys.

            And our Educational System is in the toilet as well, Due to Liberals taking over the system. Do you realize that kids are no longer taught cursive writing? Or the Constitution, or the founding of our country, how about analytical thinking? Basic math skills? We need to fight to regain our basic systems. those are not opinions, they are the facts.

          2) crossed the Potomac with GW(where she was overheard saying, “I paid good money for this crossing, WHERE’S MY NUTS?”
          3) warned Lincoln NOT to sit in that spot
          4) rode up San Juan Hill with TR, or was that UNDER
          5) sat out WW1 to pursue her studies in Marxism, felt she owed it to Karl a longtime friend of the family
          6) In 1929 warned everyone about the inevitable stock market crash
          7) sat at Yalta with the Big 3, under the table and right between Joe’s legs
          8) flew the 1rst mission of the Berlin Air-Lift as pilot, co-pilot, navigator AND stewardess
          …..etcetera, etcetera ad nauseum. She’s great, just ask her!

          Excuse me, but we paid for all your 27 years and your retirement and all the other benefits and your wife’s retirement once you pass on…
          Having been born on a Marine Core Base and Raised on one by a 31 year LIFER Marine (1930/1961) I am familiar with the MOTTO: ” it’s my country RIGHT or WRONG”… Even my father discovered the untruths of that statement eventually…

          1. Ron Long says

            Jim, gee, thanks for paying my salary for 27 years, I don’t remember seeing your name on the checks. All I had to do was loose the innocence of my youth, kill people and live with the anxiety of having to do it all over again, day after day. I did that because I love my country and I love our way of life. If you did, in fact, spend anytime around the military you would know that once I die my retirement pay stops. No mas amigo. I find it hard to believe that you were raised by a Career Marine, one that was a WWII and Korea veteran, I sense that you and he didn’t get along. Too bad, because you missed an opportunity to know someone who must have been one hell of a man. I will not excuse you.

          2. Mary Brumley says

            How sad you are! If your father (whom I thank for his service) felt that way, he should have left the military rather than become a bitter “LIFER.”

        7. pat tolle says

          Ron Long- Draftee combat veteran of our military misadventure by the South China Sea.

        Yes And look at where that has gotten them. They are all broke. Last time things looked like this we had a world war

      5. Ramocat says

        I thought OBAMA fixed that….. just ask the Democraps! I guess not!!!!
        (As for that bitch Clinton………she tried and failed).
        Health care is available ……… just do the research! Not everything in life is going to be handed to you, or has OBAMA spoiled you so much that you cannot THINK for yourself!!!

      6. Robert Lastly says

        you are an idiot and are drinking WAY to much of the KOOL AIDE NO ONE has ever died or not received care because of lack of money here in AMERICA!!! as a man who has made 14,000 for years because of a disability I CAN profess to you that despite that I had better care being broke then when I was making 75k per year! I eat better I have better care then I ever had as a man who made sufficient income to survive! I never got turned away do to income!! That is a lie the democrat(communists) have been shoveling down the throats of imbeciles like you for years!! and you are stupid enough to believe without ANY verification!!!

        Thanks to your Socialist mantra from the mau mau from Kenya and Hildabeast or
        others who have worked hard to destroy any chance of receiving medical aid as
        the o’muzzie care is going down hill faster and faster each day and more and more
        people are losing their health care as providers are pulling out of the travesty
        called o’muzzie care. No go troll somewhere else and let people roll in laughter
        at yours and Bernies attempt at promoting Democrap Socialism.

      9. Tricia Harris says

        You are DAMN RIGHT! The government MUST STAY OUT OF PEOPLE LIVES! The Federal government was created BY THE STATES – NOT the other way around – to provide for the common defense and to protect our borders. Having insurance IS NOT A RIGHT! The stupidity of you liberals is absolutely astounding! And national health care DOES NOT MAKE BETTER HEALTH CARE and you are totally deaf, dumb and blind if you believe that! Why do you think America leads the world in innovation? Because we DO NOT have national health care! Going to the doctor and the hospital BECAME expensive because of government intrusion! Healthcare belongs between the doctor and the patient – KEEP THE STINKING NOSES OF THE GOVERNMENT OUT OF OUR HEALTHCARE DECISIONS! IT’S NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS!

      10. Jimmy Quick says

        Every nation with nationalized health care is guilty of systemically eliminating the elderly, the sick, and the unborn.

        The USA started down that path many yeas ago because our leaders value the dollar above human life.

        And for your many lies and misleading statements, not to mention poorly worded rants, you have not broken your pattern of self deception.

        And while this may allow you to gain honor and praise among fools, the question is simple; why do you waste our time with your ignorance?

        Do you really think we don’t know the truth that your words are contrived deceit?

        Poor, poor fool.

      11. Ted Crawford says

        No, there they die due to long lines to access that Free health care, because the Hospitals are inadequate, poorly staffed and poorly equipped. Staffed by often poorly trained, and unmotivated Doctors!

      12. Brenda says

        Maybe you should recheck your facts. American may be the only country that does not have some form of “national health care”, but we have a social welfare system that provides health care for individuals under the various Medicaid programs. Furthermore, many of those that are uninsured choose to not buy insurance. They either don’t want to pay for it or now under Obamacare choose not the buy because they can’t qualify for the subsidizes; preferring instead to pressure states to expand their already blotted Medicaid programs.

      13. Rich says

        Looks good on paper but are you willing to leave it up to some party hack to decide if you you are worthy of treatment. Socialized everything is always pay to play or party loyalty. We know all about this in Illinois.

        1. AKLady2015 says

          Your response clearly demonstrates thst you know absolutely nothing about national health care. On the other hand, it demonstrates the results of people not having access and becoming disabled.

      14. rocky says

        No one dies for lack of care… all hospitals and clinics are required by law to tend to any emergency, and I would think that impending death would be an emergency, cost be damned.

      15. AirFrank says

        America is the only modern society that allows We The People to own firearms. Freedom includes the freedom to not make enough to afford health care. You like socialism/communism move to Europe

      16. Jim Norris says

        You know somewhere to nearly 480,000,00 people die every year due to direct effects of tobacco in the USA.. Both FIRST and SECOND hand use deaths… SCREW the LAWS and RULES pertaining to CHILD ENDANGERMENT!!! ITS ONLY SIX THOUSAND KIDS who have NO CHOICE right???

        This must be a joke, many protest abortions but condone the deaths of people so that the SIX (6) American Tobacco Companies can make a KILLING in profits and NOT to mention the HEALTH CARE SYSTEM who profiteer this cycle of death and human destruction!!!
        Personally I have ZERO problem with you using this destructive weed, however you people need to pay for your own way on this ONE… If Marijuana smoker pay 3/400$ per ounce then YOU TOO anti UP and pay for your own destruction and the others who suffer under the system you support with your tobacco use…. If everything is just about YOU then STOP screwing everybody else and SHUT UP AND QUIT!!! Secretly WE ALL know you want to, but the TOBACCO COMPANIES own YOU via addiction and ignorance and YOU are NOT strong enough to save self…
        These LAWYERS are just trying to protect those you WILL NOT…. If IGNORENCE kills 6,000 KIDS each year then someone needs to speak up… Maybe this will wake up the BRAIN DEAD among US…..

        1. Stormy says

          My mother smoked while she was pregnant with me , all of my family smoked, and I smoke and now I am 51 years old. So , if it is killing me , while it is taken a long time at doing it . It is total bull about second hand smoking killing and most people know it . Your full of crap !

          1. Jim Norris says

            Really then YOU must be right cause its you who are killing your self and others… It’s U.S. who will end up paying for your medical when it catches up… Sure you may out live CANCER but don’t forget the other life diminishing facts about tobacco… Like I said, I have no problem with you destroying your self… All I want is you to get away from the rest of U.S. when you do so and to pay via taxation up front for the medical expenses caused by tobacco use… By the WAY how o you equate illegals and health care to you killing your fellow citizens… You must be some kind of MORON because your thinking definitely is moronic and small minded

          2. Stormy says

            I could care less about what you think. People who smoke use to pay for childrens health care, guess you didn’t know about that . I am not asking anyone to pay for me or my health care. Just because you don’t agree with something , doesn’t mean the rest of the world should follow you in your opinion. This is the land of the free , and that means for all, not just you .

      19. Clay Fitzgerald says

        And what’s the relevance to this discussion? In one word… NONE!

      20. mac12sam12 says

        They can’t afford healthcare because the democrats don’t let insurance companies compete across state lines. They also don’t want tort reform so hospitals and doctors pay a high price for insurance and those costs are passed onto the consumer. Cuba has free healthcare. go to Cuba’s healthcare system at this website

        1. AKLady2015 says

          That is one of the excuses.
          Actually, a number of American people havr used Cuba’s system.
          They say it is very good.
          I have used Canadian health care. It was excellent.

          1. mac12sam12 says

            Cuba’s system is very good? Did you go to my link and go to Cuba’s free healthcare system? It sucks. And what I said about competing across state lines and tort reform is true. A top cardio vascular surgeon lives next door and he said his biggest costs are his insurance rate and it’s the customer who pays for those costs. He’s also Canadian and left Canada because of their healthcare system.

      21. Mary Brumley says

        Well…yes, there are many aspects of being an American that make me proud. But, not Obamacare! It does not help the very poor at all. I would like to have some form of AFFORDABLE national health care, though.
        However, I have never known an actually poor person to be turned down at an American emergency room. Have you?
        And if AKLady IS an American, that doesn’t make me “proid”! LOL

    5. SouthernPatriot says

      I’m not a smoker, nor is anyone in my extended family. However, if the Socialist-Fascists want to take children away, let them begin with children of Democrats. From what Democrats support, it can be easily established they are demented (mentally unsound), so taking their children away to keep from being indoctrinated into insanity would be a good idea.

      1. Rick01234 says

        Another great idea, if the parents are registered as Democrats, take the child away upon birth, just take the unConstitutional action of stealing the child from the birth parents. That’s just as bad as what your trying to prevent. None of this had better not end up in a law written by democratic lawyers..we’re enough trouble as it is!

        1. SouthernPatriot says

          I am very sorry you can’t tell a sarcastic and tongue-in-cheek posting. Even in the midst of the sarcasm, there is great truth. Perhaps you missed that as well…such as generational dependency upon government support (takers).

          1. DevelDoc1 says

            Your last sentence says it all, “Dependency upon government”. Overall welfare, food stamps etc. Society needs to have/place a work requirement and being drug and alcohol free requirement attached to these give away programs and they also should be time limited.

          2. carla AMERICAN says

            The government included! They are the biggest liars ( li detectors),druggies and drug lords ( drug tests),dependency on government ( pay them in food stamps),alcoholics ( we pay for their booze instead of giving them alcohol tests).

          3. 012017 endofanerror says

            And if you need assistance speak English or no assistance.

          4. DevelDoc1 says

            Once again I must agree. This has been one of my pet peeves for years. I can’t recall a single country I have visited providing this singular bit of government directed foolishness. You want to live in this country, learn the language and assimilate as my wife has Her naturalization process included a fairly intense interview by INS to determine English proficiency. Further, cease and desist from performing naturalization ceremonies in a language other than English (Kalifornia)

          Remember, there has been too many Republicans in office to pass anything.

          1. Dr Jill says

            Thank God for that. The democrats have become synonomous with Socialism. And to quote Margaret Thatcher [UK] “Socialism only works until you run out of other peoples money to spend.” This country was founded on the work ethic and desire for each person to make their own way to succeed it did not start out to be a bunch of lazy whimps that want to be taken care of. I believe in a hand up for one in trouble but a handout NEVER. That includes the welfare able bodied lazy and the career politicians! Try reading Starr Parker’s book Uncle Sam’s Plantation!

          2. Jim Freund says

            We know, but they seem to constantly cut down work for people. So what is to be done with that. There are so many desk jobs for the educated. But someone has to make things to buy. We already know where all the money goes these days. As to what they do sell.

          Oh but it is an Option!

          1. MAHB001 says

            It is in the primaries….

            Not so much in the general election.

            In the General Election.

            A vote for a democrat is a vote for Socialism/communism.

            A vote for a Republican is a vote for a shot at our Constitution and Capitalism.

            A non-vote is a vote for socialism.

          2. Cheryl says

            A vote for Hillary Clinton is a a vote for war..Mallory

          3. Esq says


          4. MAHB001 says


            I believe a vote for Hillary is a vote for Socialism,
            which will lead to Communism,
            which will lead to the destruction of our Constitution,
            Which will lead to a Dictator.
            Which will lead to hundreds of millions of deaths…

            So you are right… A vote for Hillary is a vote for war.

          5. Cheryl says

            Thank you, Mallory is my Granddaughter she was on my page that day to read and learn, as she votes for the first time..Cheryl

          6. MAHB001 says

            Sounds like a great kid…. Keep up the good work…

          7. Cheryl says

            Thank you, she is a great kid, she is really nervous about the election who isn’t right? She wants Grandma and Grandpa to be honest with her about what could happen before or after the election. I have truthfully told her as much as I can. Right now she is talking with her Grandpa, he is a good one for Mallory to talk to as he is a ex Navy Seal. Mallory may not like all he has to say but she asked for the truth and that is what she will get. The Truth. So far no screaming so she is just listening. Ok kiddo I am nervous for us all so talk soon have a great day..Cheryl

          8. MAHB001 says

            I have boiled it all down to this.

            Democrats = Socialism/Communism
            Republicans = Capitalism

            It is that simple.. The problem with the kids coming out of school these days is that they have been fed a bunch of crap about how bad Capitalism is. They actually think socialism might be better…

          9. Esq says

            I have falling for that for some 50 years! It doesn’t work!
            There is no such thing as a GOP! The GOP does not exist!

          10. MAHB001 says

            The elites of the GOP are liberal progressives in conservative clothing…….

            You must look at the PEOPLE to see the true GOP…. We the People can no longer take 15 min every two years to think about our Government…

            The Enemy is within….

            Having said that, I think we need to vote for the person that most closely represents our values, because, that person is the one most likely to have empathy for us…..

          11. Esq says

            That would be Cruz! We now have only one party and that party is the the Democrat Progressive Party and the Republican Progressive Party! Each mentioned here have there on ways and means of taking us too Hell but the end result is still Hell! There are probably actually only 3 too 5 people in the House and the Senate that just may be true Conservative! It just may be a good idea to drop out of the Republican party and join the Democrat Party forcing a true one party system. Man that would cause a mess now wouldn’t it! Something to ponder . The Republican party are now yesterday’s version of the MugWumps don’t you think! For they have now become Disfunctional!
            Vote Cruz!

          12. MAHB001 says

            I will vote for Cruz in the Primary election, or maybe Fiorina… I live in CA and have not voted yet.

            But, if Trump wins, I will vote for Trump in the General Election. I will also vote for all the candidates the most closely match my values in all the lower races…

            The corruption that crept into our political system has done so very slowly, It will take time AND Persistence to weed it out of the system. We can no longer spend 15 min every two years thinking about our political system.

          13. glorybe2 says

            That is one thing about Trump. He changes his beliefs every five minutes so in a way one can say he matches everyone’s beliefs from Chairman Mao all the way to the John Birch Society, with a bit of KKK thrown in as well. Tomorrow he may believe in Tuna fish and blue birds.

          14. MAHB001 says

            Liberals should know how that feels, did you get the change you were promised…

            I didn’t.

          15. glorybe2 says

            President Obama is not a liberal at all and we knew that going in. Bill Clinton was also on the conservative side of the coin as is Hillary. Bernie is the first liberal that has run in recent years. Al Gore was probably a liberal but pretty close to being dead center. Even going back to Lyndon Johnson, he is an example of a man being liberal in domestic politics yet unusually conservative in foreign relations. Jimmy Carter was liberal in some ways but a social conservative in many ways as well.

          16. MAHB001 says

            If the shoreline was the middle, you are so far out to sea that you have no idea where the shore line is.

            Just because you are out to sea, does not mean you get to change the shore line.

          17. glorybe2 says

            The right wing has twisted so far to the right that the so-called leaders of the conservative movement of ten and twenty years past are now called liberals by the conservatives. The right wing jumped off the cliff of reality.

          18. MAHB001 says

            Balderdash…and silly

          19. glorybe2 says

            Conservatives on this thread complain about conservatives that they consider phony or liberals in hiding. Nixon, Ford and the two Bushes were conservatives. Even Reagan is now accused of being a liberal by the right wing. Face it the republican party fell apart and was over run by lunatics.

          20. MAHB001 says

            The Republican party was over run by Liberal Progressives…

            Like Boehner, and the SAME lunatics that now control the Democrat party with an iron fist.

          21. Esq says

            There is no time left!

            Never give up, never give in…

            There is always time left as long as we are on this side of the dirt.

            Note: In the movies, it always looks like evil is going to win, just before evil is crushed into oblivion.

          23. MAHB001 says

            I agree that both parties have been taken over by Progressives… But I view the two (Democrats and Republican elites) as competitive siblings and not in complete unity… Democrats would rule under Communism, the Republican elites need a much slower form of control like crony capitalism/crony socialism which has elements of Capitalism in it.

            I think the two siblings have been taking turns with who is running and controlling the United States. This cycle was the Republicans turn…

            The only problem is the Republican elites have lost control of their party. Thanks to the Tea Party and Ron Paulers.

            I am not so sure about Trump being part of the Progressive party.. Recall that the Republican Elites forced Trump to swear allegiance to the Republican party. That means that the ELITES did not trust him. Then, the Republican ELITES did everything they could all the way down to supporting Cruz in the end to fight Trump…

            The elites back those that they feel they can control. I don’t think the Republican elites had a horse in the race after maybe Rubio, or possibly Kasich…

            I also think that Trump has been humbled by the support that he has been given… I can only hope that if he originally got into the race in order to split republicans so that Hillary would win, he no longer has that intent…

            Your thoughts.

          24. glorybe2 says

            Do you realize how few people want a radical right wing government? Where has any radical right wing government ever existed that was a success or liked by its citizens? S. America has had a few such governments and they were all a disaster.

          25. MAHB001 says

            It is YOU who labeled them Right Wing…..

            It is YOU and your ilk that created the oxymoron….

            Affordable Care Act.

            It is NOT the radical right wing that is taking over….

          26. jimmy midnight says

            Actually, a non-vote is a vote for status-quo, something neither us lefties nor you righties are particularly fond of
            Meanwhile, this supposedly extreme suggestion that kids be removed from homes was about, in whom the state bureaucracy has

          27. MAHB001 says

            Points well taken…..

            I find encouragement in your status-quo statement… and you are correct, non of us want the status quo…

            As I see it, the status quo is moving this country incrementally towards socialism, The evil doing this knows that socialism will never exist, and communism will fill that void… So ultimately, the status quo is Communism…

            The Crony Capitalism that you run away from, is no different than the Crony Socialism that I run away from, and both “Cronyisms are equal to Communism.

            What evil people like Alinsky taught you is that Crony Capitalism is something to run away from, knowing full and well that when you run away from Crony Capitalism you are running right towards Communism.

          28. glorybe2 says

            Communism is sort of a dead issue. It is no longer an expanding form of government and nations that went communist are now moving towards much more liberal beliefs such as moderate socialism. However fascism seems to be a somewhat growing trend and it goes without saying that fascism is a severe right wing belief.

          29. MAHB001 says

            Tell that to the poor people in the Ukraine. Or Korea, or China….

            You are wrong to think Fascism is right wing because Hitler wanted a rather conservative thought of going back to the way things were….

            The Nazi’s were Socialists…
            The KKK were Democrats…
            The Russian’s used Socialists to gain power…
            The LGBT community is now fascist…

            Fascism is NOT a severe right wing belief… Support that statement with facts.

          30. MAHB001 says

            As for the rest of your post… You are correct, I missed the Foster kids little detail…

            Are you saying that Foster Parents do not have the right to smoke?

            So you are saying anybody that works for the state should not be allowed to smoke? Does the lawyer or Judge that proposed this also have children?, should THEY be allowed to smoke in front of them??? Should they be held to the same standard?

            What happens if the Foster Parents have children of their own (Not uncommon)… Does that mean that the Foster Parents can smoke in front of their biological children and not their foster children?

            How is this incremental step any different than the incremental steps being taken against the second amendment?

            This is just big government poking its controlling nose into something that it should not be involved with… They screen Foster Parents, I guess what this guy is saying that the Foster Parents need to give up their rights to raise children…

            I say, keep the Government out of our business….

          31. glorybe2 says

            The discussion concerns breathing second hand smoke and not the visual impact of kids seeing adults smoke. Really no person should suffer second hand smoke from anyone’s habit, ever.

          32. MAHB001 says

            Having been the victim of second hand smoke, I can tell you that I would rather have lived through the smoke than have my parents taken away from me… Even if they were Foster parents..

            When I moved out of the house, I went through cigarette withdrawals even though I had never smoked before. It was the strangest thing, sitting in the cafeteria after lunch, thinking… Man I could use a smoke right now….

            Bottom line, these foster kids are better off with loving parents, or loving foster parents, smoking or not.

            This is just political correctness gone amuck.

          33. jimmy midnight says

            Mr. Mad, the “correct” form of the “possessive” of “else” is “else’s,” with an apostrophe. In other situations, the apostrophe after a pronoun, and preceeding an s, is a contraction for “is.” It’s an inconsistent rule that must simply be memorized.

            Not the only vacuum-related reality us poor human, writers of English prose, have to deal with. Let’s keep doin’ it, with a smile.

          34. jimmy midnight says

            Lemme start by again praising your recent post about demonstration regulation, suggesting that regulations that have been proposed for firearms be immediately applied to civil disobedience demos. If you’d turned it in as a rhetoric class assignment, and I was grading it, you’d get at least an A. If, in going over it, I couldn’t find any picky-ass grammatical, etc. errors, your grade would be 100.

            That’s the way I learned to write what I dare to hope is coherent and understandable prose. It would take more online research, than either of us would want to undertake, to determine exactly the state government policy implied by, “lawyer’s,” (who’s implicitly a viliian, right?) pronouncements highlighted in-top-of-the-string post.

            Side-stream smoke is a real human health issue, as you’ve highlighted elsewhere, BASED ON PERSONAL EXPERIENCE. So this “lawyer,” who’s all about some secretive “elite” (whatever that is) agenda, may actually only be saying that, “In view of likely health problems, this is a circumstance we need to be considering in placing foster kids.” (But we agree that love conquers all.)

            State bureaucrats could be exposing themselves to civil liabilities if they entirely failed in that.
            To a certain extent, “pwogwessive” is staus-quo. Deal with it. Old people with old ideas are being replaced be newer people with newer ideas.

            OK now, lemme close by suggesting that the “foster” detail you happened to miss is a model of the way, “They’re just playin’ ya with that…”

            Your posts are always welcome, maybe we’re both learning something from our dialogues. Maybe others could, too, even if it’s only about how to remain staunchly and relentlessly partisan without becoming hateful. 🙂

            It looks as if the republican party will split in half and another candidate offered under a new party. That will make it much easier for Hillary or Bernie to win. If Bernie splits off and there are four parties then only 26% would be needed to elect a president.

          38. MAHB001 says

            It looks like the Liberal Progressives that control the Democrat party are loosing control.

            And the Liberal Progressives that used to control the Republican party has lost control…

            Bottom line, the Establishment (Liberal Progressives) does not offer what the people want..

            I was wondering if the People of the Democrat party was going to wake up… Maybe they will.

          39. gerald Hughes says

            No it isn’t we are walking the edge of civil war right now,

          40. Esq says

            Good ! Hope you got you a stash!

          41. Jim Jordan says

            The only way a civil war will occur is if Hillary is elected and goes after the guns. If this was 50 years ago, neither Trump nor Hillary would even be considered for the presidency. We have aloud the communist influenced media to do our thinking for us, and we are paying the price. If you are old enough to remember Walter Cronkite (the most trusted man in America), you will recall he was a rabid socialist.
            We have allowed the fascist PC movement to develop, and have watched our college campuses become far left ideology in fact. The media has been totally dependent on sponsoring anti conservative view points for over 50 years, and we were to busy trying to buy that house or car, build our financial stability to notice that our country was being taken over by those that hate it with a passion.
            I would suggest that the gunpowder is close to the flame, and it is only a matter of time before it ignites and explodes.

          42. Jim Norris says

            Absolutely CORRECT…. American primary education is so dumbed down that all it can produce is basic morons…. Todays education is NUTS and BOLTS education with nothing to promote COMMON SENSE… Who needs CLONES when we can just grow them at home!!!

          43. Jim Jordan says

            You also are correct. They have stripped common sense from school curriculums, removed history (unless it is PC), ethics, social science. Installed “everyone is a winner and gets a “ribbon” type programs” fostering warm and touchy feelings. The problem lies in our not paying attention when we should have. I truthfully believe that there are only three two solutions left us and they are bad.1). We continue down the path we are on and become a third world nation, watching our resources and national treasure disappear at the behest of the Waco environmentalist’s and PC fanatics. 2) A civil war, which would destroy the Republic even if the “good guys” won. 3). A military coup, which would hopefully save the Republic in the long run. Not much of a choice with any of the options. It is coming to a head in the next 5 years or so that you can count on!

          44. glorybe2 says

            It is the parents that have weakened the school system. It is not the government. It is very simple. A good scholar suffers deeply for his gains. If you push young people towards good scholarship you get a lot of suicides, mental issues, drop outs, drug use and rebellion. Parents insist that their little bundles of joy get good grades. Many in the upper middle class have a mom at home full time with a telephone and when her brat gets poor grades she gets on the phone and starts a trail of complaints to the school, the mayor, her congress people and every other person who she can influence. All of a sudden a kid that deserves to fail is suddenly making good grades. The kid isn’t doing better. He is just getting better grades due to political pressure. Then the parents begin to compare their kids grades and start to demand that their kid be treated just like the other dummies. The better students are sacrificed to placate the worst of the lot. If done correctly many students who try really hard should be flunked out of the system.

          45. gerald Hughes says

            The liberal dem bloodsuckers are not smart enough to quit ahead, they see themselves as uniquely qualified to run the USA and all they have to do is keep talking
            They won’t quit until the shooting starts.

          46. wyncotejoan says

            when I met my husband 40 years ago he talked about “the revolution”, I thought he was crazy but he never stopped talking about getting ready for the revolution, I’m finally believing that he may live to see it and we’ll both be fighting in it

          47. Jim Jordan says

            This has been building since the Kennedy era, if not longer. I believe that everything has been aimed at a OWG (one world government) read some of the comments made by the likes of George Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells and others right after World War 1. But it began in earnest in the 1960’s. It has been designed to sap the will of the American people, create class hatred, authority, the destruction of the American way of life and deplete the national treasure.
            We have borrowed money from enemies (China, and the Saudi’s) created wars that have killed the flower of our youth, allowed the corporations the right to walk and trample our laws, and turn a blind eye to strengthening the American worker.
            The last 4 presidents have pushed the coming revolution via their agenda. We went into Iraq based on lies, Clinton sold high tech computers to the Chinese so they can hack into about every secret we have. Both Bush’s were disastrous for our Republic and Obama has almost destroyed our economy, plus violated the Constitution more times than can be counted. Obama care is illegal under the Constitution as it originated in the Senate, not the House as required by the Constitution.
            So I would say your husband has been right for 40 years. Good luck to all of us that believe this is going to happen. We probably will end up in a FEMA camp.

          48. wyncotejoan says

            thanks Jim, for years I was just too busy raising our 6 kids but by the time they were in grade school I saw the handwriting on the wall, current events were always a favorite topic at our family dinner table so our kids all “get it”, they weren’t scared little flakes and we are proud that we have 4 military sons. The Carter years got my mind right and the last 8 years have demonstrated it’s US vs them so we will not be lead like sheep, I’m ready to do down fighting, Molon Labe, it’s just good to know we’re not alone, I always say “see ya around the gulag”

            I doubt that civil war is about to break out and if it does the right wing will be crushed almost instantly. Whenever we hear of radical right wing incidents breaking out we always are looking at areas with very sparse, rural and small populations. The radical right is next to nonexistent in cities and places where the vast majority of us live.

          56. gerald Hughes says

            Another liberal dem bloodsucker that talks with no knowledge.
            The population is very close to equal, the manufacturing now belongs to us.
            64 % of the combat arms of the USA are from red states.
            An army manual called domestic insurrection say that the defenders need a numerical superiority of 6 or 8 to one to defend the country.
            The total armed combat forces are around 500, 000 , If there were only 50 million on the attacking side you would 300 million to 400 million to be successful all of that assume they you liberal dem bloodsuckers would be given the opportunity to get weapons and training before it stated.
            You liberal dem bloodsuckers lack the tesicles to do anything .You have to pay someone to do it for you,
            You would not last six months.
            Fore some reason you liberal garbage thing that you would sit on the sidelines and watch.
            The attackers would not attack the military first they would have democratic registration list and they would go to the people causing the trouble.
            if the red states closed off their borders tomorrow, the Federal government would do nothing
            We would immediate stop paying taxes and stop all welfare and food stamps, you would have all of those people in 3o days
            60 days you would be starving

            Good luck, fool, with your insurrection project(?) fantasy(?). It’s pretty safe to predict that you and the two or three other ding-a-lings you might be able to recruit after nationwide search, will be either dead or in custody within three hours after your first, likely poorly aimed, shot is actually fired.

            Ahhh, another low life liberal dem bloodsuckers talking, with out knowledge.My last duty assignment in the Marine Corps was as a marksmanship instructor on the weapons range at Quantico, Va, as far as i know, I still hold the range record on the 1000 yard line.
            So tell me snookums, what will you do, when the decent people come to your house to talk with you?
            Will you yell and scream at them to make them understand they can’t just come to your house and do a number on you?
            Maybe you will insist that they give you an e-mail address and go away so that you can tell them what you think, on line.

            Good luck with that liberal dem bloodsucking parasite, where you are headed, is a no fun, place

            All of your post go to all of the military sites now, 3 to 5 weeks they will post your name and address.

          2. glorybe2 says

            That was a non scandal. It had no merit or truth behind it. Certain types of financial devices caught the attention of the IRS. Many were right wing groups but others were also investigated in proportion to the number of filings from the other groups.

          5. Bill1012 says

            America crossed the tipping point with the re-election of BHO! The best hope for the country is an “Art. 5 convention”! Failing that, three things need to be done: 1, repeal the 16th Amendment, 2, repeal the 17th Amendment, 3, pass and enforce a law that would cause the immediate incarceration of anyone who feeds, houses or
            employees an illegal alien! And upon conviction, provides for a 25 year hard labor sentence.

          6. glorybe2 says

            And how much will you be willing to pay for your groceries? Migrants are super common the agriculture and they also fill numerous positions in the meat packing industry. They also work in day labor jobs. Now suppose American citizens filled those jobs? What kind of inflation would take place? How expensive would many things suddenly become? Although I believe that labor should never be cheap the awful truth is our entire nation was built on free or super cheap labor. Get rid of cheap labor and the nation might collapse permanently. In 1900 we had men in the coal mines working for one potato a day and a shack to keep the snow off their backs. Now one machine can replace 500 coal miners. But the price of coal has always increased even though very few miners are needed in many mines. In essence the price of labor is often not related to the price of the product at all. You would not believe the tragic consequences in Mississippi when cotton production became automated. We all must be very careful in our desires. Right now illegal workers are a blessing in the US.

            This is history in the making. Europeans are fighting hard to the far right, the refugees are tearing them apart, they tell me they are going to leave, they are waiting to see if Trump gets in.

            Right now they are not considering America, they think we are as bad off as them but wouldn’t it be nice if all that Muslim immigration stopped and we were flooded with educated, white people who are productive, speak our language and share our beliefs. Wow.

            The Republican party has to accept Trump or lose everything. Then a new party will be created and that will be Trump. I tell ya my bones tell me something is going to give.

        Trump is basically an independent running under the Republican party because he wants to make AMERICA great again. I have voted and consider myself a Republican all my life after long and hard consideration… I now consider myself as an independent.

        I want what is best for my country as does Trump and not what is best for the elites.

        Democrats promises sounds great until they are elected then they do just the opposite of what they campaign on are go to the extreme. Since the Obama administration Democrats no longer sound great they now sound insane.

        Republicans make alot of since but have now turned their backs on the American people. They have joined the Democrats in wanting power and money.

        Enough is Enough. It is time to take our country back.

        1. Esq says

          My wife and I are going back too Independent also! We were Independent for like 25 years and Republican for like 25! The problem with the Independent here in Florida your limited to issues unless there is a person running on the Independent ticket! The general is open but the primary is closed! It is.set.up this way so that the Lobby is always running things! This is what I think! A Revolution is the only way to reset!
          We are quickly running out of time don’t you think?

        2. Jim Norris says

          I like you was a Republican… The Party is now DEAD and forever gone!!! The Dems are dimwits and the Republicans are traitors and both have sold America out….

    8. glorybe2 says

      That’s right! We must all fight for the right for you to murder your children!

      1. Mary Brumley says

        Yes! That is exactly what it boils down to: “…the right to murder your children!” Although in specific cases, perhaps the rights of the mother should be considered. As in incest, forcible rape not brought on by the behavior of the female and the very young (10 – 12 year old girls).

        1. glorybe2 says

          I doubt that any behavior by a female is relevant to a rape. A male be super horny, regardless of the reason, must be in control of himself without excuses. As for Parents having sex with kids, I don’t care if the kid is nine moths or nineteen years old it is a form of rape and deserves to be treated as such.

      2. Tiger says

        Not my children that will be murdered. They are Americans, they don’t know how to decapitate or shoot huge weapons.

        You are a filthy person and I wish everyone like you were out of this country.

      3. MAHB001 says

        What Liberal gas chambers are now filled with cigarette smoke???

        What an asinine statement.

        1. glorybe2 says

          There is absolutely no disagreement that second hand smoke damages the health of children. Their lung performance is measured and a smoking parent really is harming the child. Now if the parent absolutely never smokes in the home that is another matter. But we all know that the likelihood is that the parent will smoke in the home. A good long rain storm will leave a smoker seriously craving a smoke.

      4. laulau says

        There is no evidence that so called second hand smoke is dangerous. Before smoking became an issue, my husband and I smoked and my children are now 57 and 65, and are healthy. i have smoked for 70 years, and I am having old age problems just now. It’s too late for me to die young.
        A lot of children from Northern California were getting lung cancer, and they found that it was due to the crop spraying by aircraft. So many things can cause cancer..

        1. glorybe2 says

          Simply ask your doctor or any real doctor. Second hand smoke is awful for anyone’s health as is smoking. A high school athlete will be held back a bit if there is smoking in the home or he or she may actually die. Smoking has all kinds of health consequences, not just lung cancer. Smokers even tend to have televisions in their bedrooms as they need to rest more hours of the day than non-smokers. And then there is the financial harm done as well. How much money did a life long smoking habit cost you? What kind of investments could you have made with that money? And how about simple things like loss of teeth and gum diseases? Tobacco murders and ruins people and yes a few people seem to not have consequences, just like everyone that is shot in the head don’t always die.

          1. laulau says

            Haha. You are funny. I never took naps, or had a loss of energy. I worked 7 days a week at my career, which meant loading A-frames and carrying heavy items for shows. I still have all of my teeth, and I am 88 years old, and never had gum disease. Spending money one carton at a time wouldn’t have given me the required money for investments . I did buy gold , one ounce at a time, , which went from 125. to 800.and had a nice savings account.. I don’t spend much at all on entertainment, so I figure smoking is what I enjoy. You have been conned,

          2. glorybe2 says

            Tonight an ad is running that asks people with pets not to smoke as the pets in their homes are twice as likely to die of cancer if someone smokes in the home.
            You think you can base such things on whether you got cancer or not. That is absolutely insane.

          3. laulau says

            In the 40’s, absolutely everyone smoked, and people I knew then are still alive. No doubt people get cancer, but there are other causes to consider. Smoking is not good for people , but I have found that it isn’t bad either. Doctors are told by the AMA that it is bad, so they promote not smoking. If you take poison, you will die. If you smoke, you don’t always die., so it is not absolutely causing death like poison would ..

      In what socialistic country does this apply,canada, scandanavia, western europe. You need to learn what you are talking about before you start advocating your clueless opinions.

      1. Tiger says

        Canada does not practice true Socialism or Communism, which by the way Lenin said Socialism the road to Communism and they only recently elected a Socialist and now regretting it.

        I lived in Europe and none of the countries practice true Socialism so maybe it is you who is clueless and should learn something before you start advocating your clueless manure.

        By the way where there is true Communism, Cuba, N. Korea and other countries there is pitiful conditions for the people.

        1. pat tolle says

          @Tiger- I notice that, like other RWNJs, you tend to make broad statements with no support . Could you show us thatCanadians regret tossing out the cuckservative Harper for whatever Trudeau ends up being?

          1. Tiger says

            Why Pat should I have to do any such thing? Most of my statements are backed with facts but if you must know his newness wearing off and I live in Florida round Canadians who come to my town for vacations. His newness wearing off.

            By the way google how he recently punched a woman in the stomach.

      2. Tiger says
    11. pat tolle says

      @Tiger- I’m not sure you understand much of anything. First learn a little something about “socialism”/socialists/communism/communists. Both are much more than just another scary word you RWNJs can use to frighten the more simple-minded among you. Are you sure dRUMPf is A man much less THE man?

      1. Tiger says

        My grandfather ran an underground to get Elites and Intelligentsia out of Communist countries. He was a Consul. He was banished to Siberia for it, got out just before they came to kill him. Ended-up in the Philippines where he continued his work.

        My family on my mothers side go back to the 1300’s fighting kings, queens, communists, socialists etc. I know more about all of that than you could possibly learn in a lifetime. My people lost life, fortune and some spent time in the Gulag for that fight.

        Your wrong, dead wrong and because too many are like you America’s Republic may be dead.

    Well, heck, if we’re going to do that, why don’t we take kids from parents who drink alcohol, take prescription drugs, eat meat of any kind, do not cook dinner with at least two vegetables every night, make less than $50K a year, are not registered democrats or are more than 10 lbs overweight. Then I guess it will take a village, because no kids will live with their parents. Do these people think about what they’re saying?

    1. MAHB001 says

      “Do these people think about what they are saying?”

      The answer is yes, Communists want to take the child away from their parents so the children can be indoctrinated….

      Sure there will. There’ll always be the parents who use ILLEGAL drugs, suck up welfare all their lives, drag home a new bed partner three times a week, subject their kids to public schools, shack up with a abusive partners, abort three out of four pregnancies, and vote for democrats. Oh, and don’t worry about the ones that are removed from parents who smoke; there’s always a long list of LGBT/ WXYZ (or what the hell ever) freaks just chomping at the bit to grab somebody else’s kids and add them to the chorus line of freaks.

      1. AKLady says

        There has been a five-year lifetime limit on public assistencw since Clinton was in office. The only exceptions are age and disability.

        1. Conservative3446 says

          Obama changed that rule right after he took office and it was never really enforced anyway. The law itself only applied to federal blocks being allotted state by state for the purpose of welfare. From there, each state was affected only by how much state money they were willing to throw in the pot when the federal gravy train came to the end of the line.
          I can’t speak for other states, but here in Michigan, welfare was never limited in any manner. When federal funds were used up, Michigan tax payers got to pick up the rest for the tens of thousands who lived and continue to live on other people’s money from cradle to grave.

          1. AKLady says

            Your knowledge of the ACA is not factual.

        Yea, but with these stupid Liberals, those are NOT the parents they want the kids taken away from – it’s the Conservative ones who will teach the kids morals, values, and the dangers of Marxism, Socialism, and Communism that scares the crap out of the Liberals. It’s not the welfare dependent, drug abusing homes, it’s the good clean ones who will NOT tolerate their kids being indoctrinated that the liberals are aiming for (I was going to say gunning for, but they want to take away our guns right along with our kids!) and they will succeed if we do not get involved, elect Conservative members of Congress and the Senate and stop this crap (notice I didn’t say Republican members, but there’s a not of RINOs out there who are just as liberal as Trumpo, Hilary, and Obama)!

      I know hundreds of people who smoke as well as their parents they are still alive today after 50 plus years…their logic is dumb.

  5. brooklynjoe says

    Well, “they” have been doing this for a number of years with obese children! They tried it on me when my son was a lot younger. Probably a lot of folks did not notice, but it always starts that way, with something small, then snowballs because nobody did anything about it!
    P.S. Thankfully my child wasn’t taken, but some Dr. tried! The social worker that investigated could not believe that I was reported as negligent. My child was happy and living in a good home, but I was prepared to go to jail if they really tried to take him from my house! This was in NY, and I do not live there anymore.

    1. Scott Dillard says

      I grew up with a chain smoking unfiltered Camels parent. I did not know what a clean air house or automobile smelled like. I know that almost every car trip I wound up sick as a dog from the secondary and tertiary smoke. Once I left at 16 for school it took 10 years before it was possible for me to produce a readable lung X-ray; they were always too dark.

      Even now I am extremely allergic to cigarette smoke. And I can’t count the number of meals ruined at home and elsewhere because some creature exercised his or her right to foul the air that I was breathing.

      I am not alone. I am an independent conservative and anti progressive. I concealed carry and have weapons available if needed. We need fewer gun control laws and more anti smoking laws, imnsho based on life experience.

      1. Dman1105 says

        It comes down to respect of the parents for the child, not a forced situation but a true education. I was a smoker long ago, back when 2nd had smoke became a known issue I was at the doc’s one day and we were discussing 2nd hand smoke. He asked if I had kids and I told him I did. He explained that the smoke could be/probably is causing harm to my son. I stopped cold turkey and had conniptions for a while in the quitting process but because I loved, and love my so, I made it though the experience and never smoked again. My son is now 42 and he has never smoked! Smoking is bad for you and those around you but the lawyers and state need to butt out. Smoking parents need to understand what is at stake and do the right thing. If a child is harmed due to parent smoking, lower the boom on them then but in the meantime, make sure parents are educated about the harm. Don’t want no communist/socialist state nor do I want any of our children harmed by ignorance either!

      2. Tricia Harris says

        So would YOU have preferred that the government step in and put YOU in foster care and probably really ruin your life, or would you have preferred to live with your parents whyo loved you! We do NOT need more government intrusion on our lives!

If you would like a good fictional read, look up the Surgeon Generals report on the effects of Second Hand Smoke, let me know if you can find a single scientific fact in the whole report. This report is overrun with “it is widely believed that”, “it is assumed that”, etc. And how about the Surgeon General who pushed the first Surgeon Generals report on the effects of smoking, Dr C. E.

    Why don’t they go whole hog and sterilize all smokers? That way they won’t have to take the kids away from the parents. With the price of cigarettes what it is, anyone who smokes is cheating himself and his loved ones of several thousand dollars a year of income. That said, it is a freedom of choice issue until one is so addicted that choosing not to smoke is impossible.

  19. Alleged Comment says

    What about sodomites? They should not be able to adopt children. They are SODOMITES!

    What about lieberals that give birth instead of having an abortion that is so dear to their hearts. Should their children be taken away too?

    And don’t get me started on bonehead law professors…….

  20. barleywheets says

    If give away an inch of your freedom .. the government will take a mile. Communism

  21. says

    These are only the children left over from murder by abortion!

  22. Gail says

    Let’s all get together and make these kind of people coming up with their ridiculous rhetoric have no value . Hollywood and the media that continues to push stupid info like these poor little illegal paid for criminals destroying cop cars burning our towns are just practicing their rights . No they don’t have any rights because they are criminals. MSN , CNN ,ABC, NBC,CBS get ready to leave town because America has and is wise to you all

  23. jjmcl431 says

    after that ,will they suggest taking kids away from parents that are over weight, drink to much coffee, etc? where will it end?

  24. Peter Bradin says

    This is a difficult situation and I lived it. My mother was a dear, sweet person She taught 2nd grade for thirty years and was loved by students, faculty and staff. During my younger days, she was an Army wife so she was raising me and my brother without a father. My uncle filled in.

    Both my uncle and my mother were heavy smokers. It was part of their generation (she was born in 1912 & I was born in 1946). I remember there was a smog layer in our house because of all the cigarette smoke. I had a lot of respiratory problems related to living in that environment. I had to be held back in school one year because of all the days I missed because of health issues. My last two years of high school, I went away to boarding school. The transformation was immediate. I was healthy enough to start playing sports. I was on the soccer team.

    If this was today, should I be taken from my mother? Yes, there were very real health issues for me that affected my academics and even my social life because of how sickly I was. BUT, what about the emotional issues I would have faced by being taken away from this loving, gentle woman? That would have affected me even more.

    I still have some throat and breathing issues to this day (at 70 years old). I am very sensitive to any throat irritation caused by pollen and post nasal drip. I will start coughing uncontrollably for fifteen minutes or more until the medicine takes hold. But, I loved my mother very much until the day she died. I will drive 2400 miles round-trip this summer just to go to where she is buried. Except for her smoking, she was a wonderful, caring mother.

    In her time, not much was known about the hazards of second-hand smoke. I know them now from my experience. But the insecurity and anxiety caused by removing a child from otherwise loving parents would be much worse. We must approach an issue like this with ultimate caution. Helping the parents learn how much second-hand smoke hurts their children is a good start. Helping them quit by using their children’s improved health would be a great motivator, but the threat of tearing a family apart is not the answer. Their is a better way. This is an issue that has to be approached with an air of gentleness and kindness, not judgementalism.

  25. cutterguy says

    oh yes. would be so much better if they were raised by the government that will take them away. Let’s let hos like Hillary raise them as socialist hogs.

  26. Len Tippett says

    Our children would be better protected by removing them from the Liberal ignorance being taught in “so called” educational institutions like George Washington University. Second hand smoke is of minimal concern, when compared to subjecting our children to a lifetime of “stupidity”.

  27. maddog0311 says

    Yes, I see and understand the point the attorney is making, i.e., he is asking to get his dumb-ass dragged out of his office, kicking, screaming his head off, begging, pleading, making deals, on his trip over to the Cotton Wood Grove, where he’ll be hoisted up onto a step about 3 foot high with rope around his stinking neck. Next the executioner will kick the step out from under him, which will cause him to do the “Deadman’s Jig”, i.e., so he can jig around for a minute or two until he’s dead as a gawd damn rock, with his eyeballs budging out of his dead skull – with a real panicked terrified look in them – and his tongue sticking straight out of his filthy mouth flapping back and forth! Ha. That is the best answer humanity has to offer to attorneys who can’t mind their own gawd damn business. Attorneys are by and large the worst gawd damn thieves on earth, now some want to steal our children, I doubt that will work out for them! Tiger has it right, encroaching socialism/communism, the only answer to either of the infections of society is the kill em all and let allah sort em out! 🙂 We should have started with Obama.

    1. Tricia Harris says

      It’s not the lawyers who are the problem, it’s the LIBERALS!

      1. maddog0311 says

        Excuse me Tricia, almost all the Liberal’s are Lawyers, so where’s the difference. I know, I know, most of the Right Wing Republican’s are also Lawyers, as sad as it is to say. Taken collectively, i.e., most career politicians are lawyers or at least have a Law Degree, then exactly what is the statement underneath it all? We ought to run advertisements for new congressmen & senators, which read, “All Thief’s, Liar’s, Scallywags, Swindlers, Illusionists, do-nothing idiots with a Law Degree, please sign up at the desk to place you name in the running for any “Public Office”! Why, because once elected to office they are guaranteed to become a multimillionaire sooner rather than later unless they are to stupid and get themselves busted co-mingling the government funds directly into their “Off-Shore Bank Account’s”. All I can say is, lynch them all let allah sort-em out!

  28. fcutch says

    LAWYERS A plague on society! Now he wants lawyers to save the world after they totally screwed it up. I have a better idea. Lets feed all the lawyers to wild dogs

    1. Jarhead says

      You mean old dog hater……..ship the bodies to Cuban pig farmers instead!

      1. fcutch says

        My bad Jarhead. I like your idea more. That way we can dispose of them out of country.

  29. Diane Brock says

    from the sounds of the discussion here, it seems more sensible to prosecute the medical professionals (and politicians who tie their hands) that allow people to die (by turning them away) for murder or maybe negligent homicide or at the very least charge them with felonies and take their licenses and their political seats…….OH YEAH, and their children! Just sayin!

    1. Tricia Harris says

      I think it sounds more sensible to prosecute all the Liberals – it’s a shame that stupidity is not illegal! Oh yes, I know, the jails are already full and if we made stupidity a crime all the jails would be filled to capacity with liberals and we would have to be a massive quantity of jails!

  30. hottrodscars says

    That’s odd, no mention was made of illegal drugs – – only legal tobacco. Too many politicians, from all the various reports I have read, are using cocaine; they don’t seem too anxious to break up the drug selling gangs.

    1. Jarhead says

      Spot On…..Mandatory drug testing for Congress is needed…..

  31. Ramocat says

    Hea pal…….lets worry about taking our country back FIRST!

    TRUMP in 2016!!!!

  32. Deborah G says

    How about we Take ALL Asshole Liberal Professors away from our kids since they doom our kids to a life of stupidity for which we are forced to pay for

  33. Retired Marine says

    Take this lawyers license away, what a dickhead.

  34. Roy F Wilt says

    When will these Bastards stop trying to screw this Country up?

  35. 4freedom says

    I say take kids away from lawyers, their going to turn out to be progressive loonies anyway.

  36. James Maxwell says

    And let the mental insanity arise and show its ugly ass in public once again. There should be a
    requirement that any person aspiring to be a lawyer take a mental competency test before entering
    law school and ever six months for the rest of their lives. They are the most corrupt group of
    individuals that exist today. Look in the hall of politics and it is invested with lawyers who are
    corrupting and bastardizing the legal system to enrich themselves at the expense of others. They
    commit more crimes than the professional criminals do on a daily basis. Even in ancient times they
    were distrusted and shunned by normal citizens. Now some ignorant panty wasted idiots wants to
    take away children from their parents who smoke? I agree it is a vile habit and I used to smoke but
    quit. I didn’t see this fool talking about taking away kids from drug users or alcoholics that would have
    probably included him if testing was done.

  37. Robert Lastly says

    Another non-American muslim demorat trying to make laws in America! Go figure!

  38. ConservativeSenior says

    How about we chain all the lawyers together and drop them in the ocean?

    1. Jarhead says

      YES…..a great START…..keep up the GOOD works….Semper Fi

  39. Tricia Harris says

    Well, just like Hilary says it takes a village to raise a child and parents aren’t smart enough to do it so the Government has to step in. This is absolute CRAP! I have asthma and grew up with my dad smoking, and certainly I was subjected to secondhand smoke, but back then they didn’t know how bad it was. I can just imagine the hell that would have broken loose if some government flunky had come to my parents house and said they were taking me away because my dad smoked. The idiot would have been escorted out of their house with a double barrel shotgun and told they had better NOT trespass on the property again. My folks would have never tolerated this BS that the government knows better because we all know that once you get any government agency involved everything goes to hell in a handbasket. I agree that some parents are abusive to the kids in many ways, and I know some who smoke around their kids, and don’t always have clean clothes, or the cleanest house, but that is NONE of the government’s business. If we allow them to do this, the next step is to say they should take the kids away because there is dirty laundry in the house, or the floors aren’t mopped and the carpet needs vacuuming. It never stops with these stinking liberals thinking the government knows best and intruding on our lives. IF this kind of garbage passes, it’s all our faults for NOT standing up and screaming about it, and telling our Congress that THEY will no longer continue to be re-elected if they support stupidity such as this. Call your Congress and Senators and get involved – that’s the only way to stop this crap!

  40. James Ruddy says

    The proposal isn’t about protecting the health and rights of children, it’s about removing the rights of parents and destroying the family structure…and making lots of money for lawyers while doing so.

  41. Frank Nance says

    Let’s see death by second hand smoke. I am 64 and my parents as well as other kin and friends smoked when I was a child. My last physical was 2013. Lungs clear, heart and blood pressure normal. Six siblings, one sister died of unknown cause. We are all healthy. What true parent are going to allow the state or Fed’s to come in and take their children because a parent smokes without serious consequences will be interesting to see.

  42. depaz says

    My siblings and I grew up in a house w/ smoking parents: cigars for my dad, cigs for my mom. Today, we are 68, 63, 58, and 53. Mom passed away at 81 (from non-smoking issues). Dad is 93. Stopped smoking cigars, but only about 4 years ago. Two of the four of us became smokers. One stopped, the other still does. Many of my childhood friends grew up in a house w/ smoking parents. Maybe the difference is in OUR day, we didn’t spend the day in the house w/ the smokers playing video games. We were outside in the fresh air. Also in our day, there was no central air conditioning, so windows / doors were open and the smoke didn’t linger inside. Point being – this is BS and just another opportunity for the nanny state to grab more power. Not saying that smoking DOESN’T cause problems, because I know that it does, but there are a helluva lot more things that kids need to be protected from – like a government run amok.

    1. Tricia Harris says

      Absolutely right!!!!!

  43. Susan Short says

    I say take the kids away from parents who voted for Obama, and will vote for Hillary! Those parents are too stupid to be allowed to raise children!

    1. Jarhead says

      You are NOT short on COMMON SENSE Susan.

  44. George E. LeFebvre says

    This Lawyer should be sent to any communist country who believes in the state raising your children or we could say brainwashing them.

  45. Greg Edwards says

    being around parents made me sick for 18 yrs.they told me it was all in my head.i did not go to college because i would be in a office of smokers.people do not known this but when a judge takes your kids you are no longer have the rights to take care of your is the judge job now to watch over the kids.when a kid turns 13 he has rights and can ask for help if it makes him or her sick.courts are over loaded now. why add more problems to the court system.when i left high school,i move out as fast as i could.


    So, when are we going to see Attorney Banzhaf hold a press conference and say Obama’s daughters should be taken away from him and his wife because he smokes.

  47. Aunt Dot says


  48. Dale Vukelich says

    So what is wrong about teaching your children about the Bible? Are you people really that stupid that you think that God is not real. You had better wake up people and trust in our Heavenly Father because I am living proof that he lives. So answer me this, I will make this as short as possible, HOW MANY CHILDREN DO YOU KNOW THAT GETS RUN OVER BY A CAR AT THE AGE OF FOUR AND DRAGGED UNDER THAT CAR FOR OVER ONE HUNDRED YARDS AND LIVES TO TELL ABOUT IT, AND THEN ON TOP OF THAT HAS FIVE, YES I SAID FIVE BRAIN SURGERIES LATER ON IN HIS LIFE AND I AM TALKING MAJOR BRAIN SURGERY AND LIVES TO TELL ABOUT IT, YES I AM LIVING PROOF THAT GOD IS REAL.

  50. Eleanore Whitaker says

    Bwahahahahahaha! So now the bossy, overbearing CONs want to make more rules for the rest of us, just not them, to live by. Take the kids away from parents? Really? Just how much more do you lunatics think you’ll get away with? Tell you want for every kid you take from parents, you make sure you take them in and support them. Or is this yet another distraction to avoid admitting your Hastert Speaker of the House was a pedophile? Not working anymore..those bossy distractions you think you can FORCE others to obey you like good little doggies? A dog often turns vicious when its “owner” gets a tad to vicious.

    1. Michael Dennewitz says

        Awwww…Dennewitz…Masquerading as Netanyahu again? Not this crazy fukboy again. He can’t aim his dick in the toilet without missing and is always posting, posting, posting, posting. Should you be at Temple atoning? Oh right your Shabbat starts at sundown..Enjoy Tevya.

  52. cowboy541 says

    Interesting idea, however with that very same line of thinking how many unborn baby’s die each year? Do they think that the doctors should have their children taken away from them as well?

  53. blackhawk132 says

    This is such bullshit. 2nd hand smoke is a total lie. My wife and I smoke 5 packs daily and have 5 children , 19 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren .NONE of us needs medical help . We are all extremly healthy . I am 79 years old and my wife 76. We have smoked from an early age. Smoking is as fake as climate change . Whats next ? Maybe transgender bathrooms ? Oh yea ; Thats NOT damgerous. Wow ; We really need Trump or our country is finished .

  54. Brenda says

    Unfortunately, it is the attorneys that have had the greater influence for damage, not righting the wrongs. Not satisfied to skew the judicial system, they now want to cloak their misuse of power under the guise of social justice.

  55. Rick01234 says

    What we need Is to prevent unConstitutional laws written by lawyers who should know better because believe it or not, they took an oath to protect the Constitution with their very lives if need be. It’s time to vote out every lawyer in office, it is they who write the laws that violate that solem oath.

  56. junkmailbin says

    liberal attorneys are the fifth column for socialism control

  57. Mark Brickey says

    I’ve never seen “second-hand smoke” on a death certificate.
    I am a baby-boomer who grew p in a family of smokers. Mom & Dad, my oldest brother (when he came of age), aunts, uncles, etc. I have good health (except arthritis) and so do all my B’ & S’s, except age-related. My Dad died at 86, almost all aunts, uncles died elderly, grandparents were well past 80. My Mom was an exception but it was a quirky situation for her.
    I firmly believe that one of the biggest reasons why was because we kids didn’t spend hours in front of TV or whatever, we were outside doing stuff. We also didn’t have AC until I was almost 16, so that meant windows open & fresh air…..
    Just as Tiger & other say below, this is nothing more than the same old crap from progressives trying to control everything about our lives

  58. Randy G. says

    How are so many blind to demoRATS or the new Nazi’s. Who acts like World War 2 Germany — not Republicans. We are very close to losing the first and second amendments and that is the goal of the progessives. No more liberals as they are straight out socialist/commies. The u.n. keeps pushng the small arms treaty only to disarm the U.S. What do people not see. Illegals killing or murdering Americans. No boarders and that number will go up. These demoRATS sold guns to mexico to help them with the lies of getting our guns and that back fired on them also. Mostly foreigh guns and thousands more dead on both sides of the boarder. Boarder patrols and Police killed by illegals. The latest in Florida and when they killed the illegal scum the demoRATS referd to him as undocumented. SICK. Look behind crazy bernie — they all want you to give them everythingf for free. Not the American way to work for it but free. None of those bastards would put their lives on the line for this country but they will riot to have bathrooms changed and riot in New Mexico burning American flags and carryibng mecican flags, SICK. What they do not understand is that if we lose this country to the demoRATS they will be the first to feel it. CONTROLED. The new SLAVES. We will be able to fight back so their own supporters will fell their hatred first. How is it that mexicans yes mexicans come here to leave that hell hole and what to change this country back to mexico? The progressives would have no trouble using guns to gun down Americans in the street who will fight for America but will not call terriorist — MUSLIM TERRIORIST. WTF. They will control everything and all will be offended because it will hit all. Oh, except them. They are Capitalist when it is their wallet. How in America can a commie
    (bernie) and a socilaist/commie (hillary the puk) get to run for office? If you listen nothing is good here (they caused it) and money for all except Americans. AGAIN WTF!

  59. Rich says

    tobacco is a no no but reefer and cocaine are probably fine. That stuff will get you left of center in a hurry

  60. Jim Samaras says

    How about the parents who do nothing to teach their kids respect for others?

  61. Michael says

    What’s next? Anyone using foul language, according to those who have sensitive ears, want other people’s children taken away from them? When the few dictate to the majority that they should change their ways, it’s mother Russia here in this country! We already have a black woman Attorney General dictating to 6,500 judicial courts in the country telling them they can no longer imprison black’s for not showing up for court, or not paying their fines, but it’s okay to prosecute white people accordingly! About the only folk’s in this country with racists agenda are blacks! Don’t bring your crap around me! You won’t like the reception you get!

  62. Dennis "Goose" Lansberry says

    Amazing! Both my parents smoked, in the house, in the car, etc… How, on earth, have I lived 63 years? I’m quite sure, whoever was nursing me had my bottle, in one hand and a cigarette in the other, from time to time.

  63. Rock J. Dueck says

    Take kids away from parents who smoke while still supporting the legalization of smoking marijuana. Is there no end to the left’s hypocrisy? And where do you think they would suggest the children be placed?…some place harmless like with a homosexual couple? There are many things more toxic than smoking.

    1. ABO says

      It does seem fairly obvious Rock, that there is indeed no limit to the left’s hypocrisy. Or the unfathomable idiocy of those that believe in it unquestioningly.

  64. AirFrank says

    Nothing in the Constitution gives the government the authority to interfere with a family’s freedom. I say lawyers like this should be disbarred for abusing their clients.

  65. Jeffrey Cahoon says

    You are OBVIOUSLY out of your mind!

  66. Stormy says

    No one should loose their children for smoking.

  67. Ronald Logan says

    If this should pass the next thing would be remove the children from those who drink an then those who let their children eat fast food when is this BS going to stop

    1. Paul Robinson says

      And take children away from parents that teach them real history and Christian morality.

      1. Ronald Logan says

        Or if you have a gun in the house regardless if it under lock an key. One freedom at a time. I can`t figure out what the hell people has got against freedom the right to choose the right to make decisions the right to go an come as they please are to go where they please.

  68. Paul Robinson says

    Bet you this fool advocates degenerate homosexual adoption of children. Second hand smoke doesn’t kill children and it really is none of the governments business anyway. I personally hate smoking.

  69. disqus_CeZmTpgh9W says

    Avotomat Kalishnikov, the name of a weapon that has slaughtered hundreds of thousands, is a perfect nickname for “AK” lady

  70. Libby Walls Eriks says

    This could go on and on. For instance what about parents that speed on our road ways. This puts kids lives at risk, or parents that drink and drive, or smoke pot and drink. What about the mothers taking kids to school and run the red lights. What riding bikes very dangerous. Mowing the yard, climbing trees. What about common core in school. The list can go on forever. Somebody needs to have brain and us it.

  71. Bonum Malum says

    Just saying one more time, this is MR. Short opining, not Susan. We have a joint account

  74. onefour says

    People say anybody but Hillary. And I say anybody but Hillary and Bernie since they are both Socialists and are more than willing to take kids away from parents in order to mold them into what ever they advocate. They’re not doing it fast enough in the school systems from K-12 and on into college. Russia et all: has state run nurseries where they mold young minds is it coming here?

  75. Peter Stephens says

    A far more realistic approach, would be to put a $.10 per filter refundable deposit, on every cigarette sold. Bring back the 20 filters and you can have your $2 back. Just think how many children would benefit from picking up filters on the side of the road and turning them in for the deposit. Face it. Cigarette smoking is as dirty a pastime as can be imagined and every one who does smoke, is also guilty of wearing the same underwear for weeks on end. Why do you think you can smell smokers a block away. Oh I was a long time smoker, and smoked my first cig in 1943, and my last in 1996, so I have lots of experience at being a moron with a cigarette in fingers.

  76. snowyriver says

    When people fear the government there is tyranny. When did we the people give this much power to the government? If the parents want to subject their children to second hand smoke from the day the child is born that is their right.

    This isn’t socialism. This isn’t communism. It is blatant fascism at its very worst. Only the insane or those so empowered by evil would even think of such a thing. No one should have power over someone else’s family.

  80. glenn398 says

    I really find it odd that alcohol is never mentioned just cigarettes and unless you are totally in denial alcohol destroys more families and is responsible for a lot of dead and beaten kids than most any other product. Back in the 40’s and 50’s almost everyone smoked and us kids grew up just fine and we surly didn’t have the problems it seems they do today.

  81. Mark Clemens says

    If they don’t want children w/their biological parents be the second hand smoke might cause cancer. Why do they let homosexuals adopt children? One cut on the child could lead to AIDS. AIDS will kill you a whole lot sooner than developing lung cancer.

  82. Patrick Thomas says

    My mother chain smoked. Always had a cig in her hand. But it did no damage to me. I’ve never smoked so I didn’t pick up my mother’s bad habit. I am now a very healthy 61 year old man

  83. LMinAppleton says

    I love the way Liberals throw these statistics around–6,000 kids die every year from secondhand smoke. Really? Show me how you came up with this figure. Where is the scientific evidence? How many people have died because of the Liberal ideology of gun control? Columbine, Sandy Hood, Fort Hood, McDonald’s, home invasions, etc. All victims prevented from protecting themselves because of an irrational Liberal fear of law abiding citizens owning guns. Obsessed with smoking, but they claim we have to allow terrorists into the country lest we offend them. Can you say Boston Marathon, San Bernardino?

    AK bitch is a TROLL.don’t becomes . irrelevant.

  89. Jon Weiss says

    I got a good laugh at this article since the people proposing taking kids away are stupid beyond all reasoning.

    I don’t know Mr. Banzhaf, nor, I’m sure, do I want to.

    Such a man has obviously lost all possible reasoning ability.

    He makes the claim that 6000 children die each year from secondhand smoke.

    I would love to see his sources and research data. I say this because, I am a man who grew up in a family of smokers, but by some twist of fate never picked up the habit myself. My Father, Mother, Brother, and two sisters all were heavy smokers, and I tried it once at an early age and just didn’t like the burning in the lungs, so I started and stopped in the same day.

    But I spent 18 years in a house with second hand smoke and NEVER developed any of the issues commonly associated with smoking. So in short, I doubt Mr. Banzhaf’s data, whatever it may be.

    Based on the heavy emphasis on government control I suspect that Mr. Banzhaf’s data is very likely manufactured as an excuse for more government intrusion into the lives of Americans, with little regard for your well being.

    In all fairness and in the interest of full disclosure, I did develop cancer at age 42, but not lung cancer, rather than being the good caretaker, the government caused my cancer, since I developed Acute Myeloid Leukemia, of a variety, according to my Oncologist, that is the result of exposure to benzene and/or radiation, neither of which I was exposed to by my parents, but both of which I was exposed to during my career in the U.S. Military.

  93. coneyro says

    Personally, in this case, I’m not even considering the legalities. Any parents that willfully and with callous disregard to their children’s health, smoke in the home, or around them, are selfish morons.

    My son gets sick at the mere hint of tobacco odor. I get nauseous from it, as well, so I speak from experience.

    Unfortunately, you cannot force laws to make responsible parents out of insensitive, selfish jerks. Some have common sense and some don’t.

    Let’s just take care of our own.

      Try a cigar or pipe and keep the kids indoors. When you light up a cigarette tell the kids to go outside.

      1. coneyro says

        When you light a cigar or pipe, your body and your clothes still stink.
        If the kids go outside, your home is still covered with poisonous tar and nicotine residue, which they return to. Your furniture and house smells, and gets discolored, and the white walls get yellow.
        Your “suggestions” are not valid.
        Smoking is a stupid, selfish, addictive habit, that turns otherwise sane people into walking zombies and idiots.
        I should know. Until I quit cold turkey, I was one of them.

        1. Alleged Comment says

          You know, the same could be said of eating.

          1. coneyro says

            Now you’re just mocking and ridiculous.
            With food, you stay alive. Your body requires it. Smoking is an odds on favorite of health complications and/or early death. Something your body DOESN’T need.
            Stop being evasive and silly.

    These people give lip service to out liberties and rights but only apply them to their own interests. They must have freedom of speech but it’s OK to shut up your opponent with an organized violent protest.

  95. Patrick Thomas says

    My mother chain smoked. She always had a cig in her hand. I grew up with that and it didn’t do any damage to me. I am now a very healthy 61 year old man with no medical problems. I haven’t seen a doctor in decades.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      How far can you run without developing shortness of breath?

  96. Gary Heaton says

    Why would a government do such a thing when they can just BAN TOBACCO??
    That ends everyone’s problems with tobacco Right? Just like it did with drugs…right? Ban them..and it’s over. No one will have any, they can’t, it’s against the law.
    How about not allowing anyone to drink booze under the age of say ..oh..21? That would stop ALL teen alcohol abuse..right? Hell, why stop there! Ban alcohol from everyone! MOST violent crime has alcohol as a contributing factor to it someplace. I know that for a A LAWYER told me so!!

    1. AKLady2015 says

      They tried that. It was called “Prohibition”. It did not work.
      Problem, you cannot legislate morality.

      1. disqus_2HJyL9vcD3 says

        “Problem, you cannot legislate morality”….and THAT ladies and gentlemen is why we have liberals!

        1. AKLady2015 says

          Our Founding Fathers were liberals.
          Don’t take my word for it, ask the British.

          With each cycle, Libertarians shave off more supporters from the major factions. A small portion of those people become radicalized — like you.

          1. disqus_2HJyL9vcD3 says

            I didn’t know any of the Founding Fathers personally, but I’m quite sure they’d be rolling over in their graves with ANY comparison to today’s liberals. You really need to learn to put things in context.

          2. AKLady2015 says

            I did provide you the context.
            You really need to increase your reading comprehension.
            Modern Americans are not traitors discussing revolution.
            On the other had the red state, school dropouts are talking revolt — armed revolt.

          3. disqus_2HJyL9vcD3 says

            Sure, whatever you say Ms. Know-it-all.
            “Modern Americans are not traitors discussing revolution”…..You must not be familiar with this little phenomenon called ‘Feel the Bern”. Stay clueless.

            You really need to increase your reading comprehension.

    The rise of communism is alive and well in America, thanks to Obama and friends!

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Like so many other Americans, you confuse Communism and Socialism.
      You also are obviously unaware of the fact that all modern, industrialized nations have mixed economies.
      Possibly, you would prefer turning our cities inot Calcutas?

  98. Frank W Brown says

    A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots! AND TYRANTS AND BUREAUCRAPS!!!

    If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but 
not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or 
to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a 
check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not 
to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that 
was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from 
owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty 
F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but 
not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make 
you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is
 run by idiots.

    If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a 
wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman 
in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head 
searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but 
is run by idiots.

    If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions 
of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his 
teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class 
in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more 
government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with 
Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free
 cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses 
but is run by idiots.

    If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to 
provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment 
checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was 
diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest 
big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a 
wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government 
forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a
 nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself 
makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your government ‘cracks down’ on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for ‘the safety of its citizens’ and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    What a country!

    How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America?

  100. Michael Anderson says

    They are worried about kids living with parents that smoke but the don’t care in unborn babies are killed. GO FIGURE ……

    1. AKLady2015 says

      The Bible does not care eother: Exodus 21:22-25; Ecclesiastes 6:3–5; Numbers 3:39-40; Genesis 2:7; and Numbers 5:27.
      Maybe you should get a better education.

  101. Nina Ferguson says

    Supposedly, lawyers are assumed to be relatively intelligent. Then, you find one like this. This is so absurd that I am surprised that it wasn’t a politician. The idea that he or someone like that is going to take a child away from a parent because that parent smokes is really ludicrous. My father would have met someone like that at our door with a shotgun to dissuade them from removing his children.

  102. Dorene Stamper says

    I agree that smoking is harmful to the lungs, however, removing children from their homes because of it would be even more harmful. My own father was a Navy man, and he smoked like a locomotive, but other than that I had a loving home. To think that the government could storm into my childhood home, and remove my brother and me because of him smoking . . . . this is preposterous!!!! If our government can break up a family over this means our country is well on the road to Socialism/Communism!!! PLEASE, DON’T ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN!!!

  103. Tracie says

    Why not worry about taking kids that are beat and exposed to crack meth and worse pimped out to pay for drug addicts! Let’s take kids from alcoholics oh wait why don’t we just take everyone’s kids it’s not like the states have enough homes for the ones they have! Smoking is legal may not be right but neither is cursing at them and not disciplining them!

  104. Sgt. York says

    Parents to lawyers mind hour own damn business. We wont let for some other people to take care of our kids it’s still America ovomit isent the dictator yet and your not in congress eathier and if you were we would damn sure Recall you.

    1. Cahto says

      We already need to start recalling many of our (Not) Representatives.

  105. IVDAD says

    I have a better idea. Let’s banish all lawyers, especially those involved with politics that are ruining the country. Follow that with banishing professors. Let classes be taught by those that have actually worked in the field.

    I have no Kid’s I know people that do they smoke out side, ant smoke in there car for there kid’s. I think it would be A hell of A fight the Government is trying to be communist this is America fix our road’s and infrastructure that’s your job. Stay out of people business unless it’s just so bad people notice you are becoming to involved which is not bad fx the country to. They don’t smoke A round there kid’s they are being responsible adult’s

Foster homes sometimes trade off children as often as twice a year! What a wonderful “stable atmosphere” this is for children! Aren’t we killing enough with abortions already??

      1. Kim Highfield says

        And you accept this?

        1. AKLady2015 says

          Just how would prevent it?

          1. Kim Highfield says

            By voting the Liberals out of office and getting back to the Constitution…it’s We,The People who are suppose to be in charge, not the other way around

          2. AKLady2015 says

            The man in the Hoise is a Constitutional scholor.
            You simply do not understand how you government functions.

            Congress spends the money
            Congress makes the laws.
            You elect Congress.

            The President is mainly a figurehead.
            You do not even get to elect him.

          3. Kim Highfield says

            I didn’t say the President, I said Liberals…many of the Republicans in Congress are just as Liberal as Democrats, they are RINOs (Republican In Name Only). They do their best to interpret the Constitution their way, so as to fit their agenda…the downfall of the USA as a free country. They are constantly attacking The Bill Of Rights in their attempts to take our God-given Rights and Freedoms away. What they are in the process of doing right now is straight out of the handbook for Socio-Communism.

          4. AKLady2015 says

            Why don’t you use factual language instead of labels?

            You are engaged in childish name calling and have failed to make a single point. Generalities simply waste space.

          5. Kim Highfield says

            I have not done any name calling, nor have I used labels…it is what it is. Look around you at all that’s happening today, because of these people refusing to follow our Constitution and trying to rewrite it to fit whatever they want. If you need specific points, look at what has been done to the American family union through the years to make people dependent on government. Look at what is happening to free speech these days…you can have it as long as you don’t dispute what they want. Look at the erosion of private property rights through unlawful acts perpetrated by the EPA and so-called environmentalists…they have no right to the land they steal from landowners. Look at the attacks on the 2nd Amendment, which is a God-given right, not a government given privilege…and it is also the Right in The Bill of Rights that is the citizen’s last resort to protecting us from losing all of our other rights to tyrannical government officials. The Founders wrote our Constitution in the manner that they did to protect the future of America, even allowed for a legal process for Amendments to be made (and decided on by a vote of the people, not the elite of DC)…and unless we adhere to it, then America will cease to exist. You’ll notice that I haven’t resorted to name-calling, denigration, or foul language here, like a Liberal/Socio-Communist would do when someone disputes what they’ve said. If you take offense to my saying Socio-Communist, then again, all I can say is that it is what it is. You may prefer the term Progressive, but if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it’s a duck, plain and simple.

          6. AKLady2015 says

            Accusation, accusation, accusation …
            Not one single, verifiable fact.
            Labeling people is name calling.

          7. AKLady2015 says

            You really need to take a Constitutional Law course.

            I am sorry to be the one to tell you this, but you simply do not know what you are talking about.

            Oh, and you are so very confused about the EPA. That agency acts to protect your property rights, your health, the health of your children, and the health of their children ….

            You are apparently too young to remember the Love Canal tragedy.
            There are hundreds of ‘Love Canals’ all over the U.S.

          8. Kim Highfield says

            You need to pay attention to what’s happening around you. Yes, the EPA was established, by Nixon, for the purposes you have stated, but it has been so misused and granted way too much power…and has morphed into something which could be described as Frankenstein’s monster. But then, according to you, I don’t know what I’m talking about anyway and we obviously have different viewpoints, so I see no purpose in continuing this back and forth, as it will serve no purpose. You have a wonderful evening and enjoy your view of what should be…I’ll be praying to God that He will save us from ourselves.

          9. AKLady says

            Apparently, you blame the EPA for contractor mistakes.
            Your blame is misplaced.
            I suggest you talk to Congress about the laws requiring government agencies to use the lowest bidder.
            Maybe we deserve to have our tax dollar sepent on the experienced and efficient, with good outcome records.

          10. Kim Highfield says

            I’m referring to unnecessary EPA regulations and government taxation that is destroying our job market and economy, by forcing Corporations to have their work outsourced to places outside the USA, in order to even stay in business.

          11. AKLady says

            If you want to see high coporate taxes, you need to look beyond the U.S. China’s layered tax system hits about 60% in some areas.

            For America’s tax rates to come down, we will need to stop being the world’s police force. The military is our largest are of spending. Much of that spending is hidden in other budgets in addition to what is actually directly attributed.

          12. Kim Highfield says

            The military is the ONE expenditure that is mandated by our Constitution and one of the few responsibilities that the Federal government is suppose to have…National Defense. Obama has cut our military to shreds, the navy is back to WWI levels….our military needs to be rebuilt, just for defense of our nation, if an enemy ever launched an attack on us, here at home.

          13. AKLady2015 says

            Silly, silly person.
            There is no Constitutional mandate that states 47% of the budget should be military spending.

            There is nothing in the Constitution that says Ammerica is required to play world police dept.

            We did quite well before WW II.

            Vietnam was the 1st mistake.
            Korea the next one — thst war has never ended.
            Iraq and Afghanistan are simply Vietnam replacements.

            Those wars keep thw Koch and Bush making a lot of money off the backs of the American taxpayer.

          14. Kim Highfield says

            I said WWI, not WWII….and the Koch bros are now throwing some backing Hillary’s way.

          15. Kim Highfield says

            Nam WAS a political farce, that cost way too many American lives. But the soldiers who fought and died, did it for our country, they followed the orders given and earned the title of hero.

          16. AKLady2015 says

            American and Allied involvement in Vietnam began in WW II.
            At that time it was part of French Indochina.
            The Japanese had invaded.

          17. AKLady2015 says

            So did I. “We did quite well before WW II.”

          18. Kim Highfield says

            AKLady2015…Do you actually have a job and pay taxes, or are you living on government freebies? You seem to have a very Socialistic viewpoint.

          19. AKLady2015 says

            Every modern, industrialized country has a mixed economy.
            It is a matter of national defense.
            Suggest you study history.
            You seem to be totally unaware pf what happens when the impoverished become the majority.

            You might also learn the difference between Socialism and Communism.

  114. capa760 says

    Well, we didn’t as kids. I agree with it when it is Marijuana, meth, etc. Someone has overstepped their liberty when it infringed upon the parents.rights.
