    Some Props to Rep. Tom McMillin

    I'm glad to see someone at least trying to address overreaching stupidity that Mike Bishop allowed to pass in 2009.

    Restaurants and bars would have the option of allowing smoking on patios and other outdoor portions of their businesses under bipartisan legislation recently introduced in the state Legislature.

    Banned outside no less!  F'ing amazing.

    "I think this something businesses should be able to offer if they choose to," said Rep. Tom McMillin, R-Rochester Hills, the sponsor of House Bill 5159. "People step outside to smoke now anyway.

    "I am not a smoker, but to me this is an issue of liberty and property rights," Rep. McMillin continued. "That's why I didn't support the smoking ban legislation when it was in the House. If I was in one of these areas with my children and someone started smoking, I'd go someplace else. I believe that's a choice we always have."

    Been saying that to non-smokers for years, Rep. McMillin.  Bottom line, it's a big state, and there is room for everyones vision of what is condoned by business owners in their establishments, especially when it is an exorbitantly taxed, legal product in question.  Prior to this nanny authoritarian law, if I chose to enter a place that didn't permit smoking that was my choice.  Today, my choice, and other establishment owners is eliminated by a majority of overcompensated full-time graft practitioners (Tom, and a handful of others excluded).  But, it's about public heath CS!  Of course it is, as long as one doesn't notice the deep pockets for lobbyist like the exempted casinos in Detoilet.

    Ps. Brian Calley strikes again.  My surprised look...

    got roped into that one.

    To me its a no-brainer that it should never have gotten out of committee much less gotten a vote in the State senate. I wonder what horse trading went on to get this liberal policy rammed down the throats of private property owners in Michigan?  To me THAT is the explanation.

    Hopefully Tom can get some traction.
