Regarding the Nov. 12 article, “New law a bit hazy?”:
Restaurants, bowling alleys, bars, taverns, non-tribal casinos and all public buildings are going to be banned from allowing smoking. Do the laws of physics and atmosphere stop existing right before and after the tribal casinos?
I am a smoker. I am not proud of it, but I say that honestly, I pay my taxes and obey the laws, but if I cannot go to a restaurant, bowling alley, tavern, saloon or non-tribal casino, explain to me why it is OK to inhale carcinogens at a tribal casino? Why is no one holding them just as responsible as everyone else? If you are going to enact a state-wide law that affects everyone, you better include all of us, or it is a moot point. Tribal casinos better be included because we all pay state and federal taxes. If they are not, then doesn’t that make the Initiative 901 void?
Is there anybody out there that feels the same as me? Speak up or you get what they give you. I voted for personal rights, how about you?
