  1. Excellent! Maybe we can get meddling government to dictate to these property tax-paying entrepreneurs what shall be allowed on their menu as well.

  2. My only problem with the CCO is that it wants less government, but wants the government to stop smoking at business which pay taxes to the government! I don’t smoke, but it’s legal and the owner needs to decide. If you don’t want smoking, most everyplace in Evansville is smoke free. I’m just saying if you are against government in your life, then quit picking and choosing!

  3. Nothing so needs reforming as other people’s habits. ~Mark Twain. Or addictions, which are legal and pay taxes to the government!!!!

  4. I think most people can go a hour or two when they are eating to not smoke, they can smoke all they want in the car on the way home..
