Poor children. Want to be treated like adults, but live off their parents, get free healthcare and have loans they don't have to pay back. Stay in college. The real world sucks.
They almost all voted for Obama and the nanny state too.
Are they too stupid or naive to understand?
The only thing liberals are pro choice about is killing babies and smoking pot.
Transfat? banned. Big sodas? Banned. Happy Meals? Banned. Guns on campus? Banned. 'Controversial' speech by conservatives(hate speech) Banned.Religion? Banned. Prayer? Banned. The list goes on.
Now go back to your dorm room and talk about how cool it was that Obama was re-elected.
First of all, it's NOT a public space. It is a private space owned by the university. Secondly, for supposedly smart youngsters, why would they want anyone to smoke anywhere? Of course, these typical libreals will want the government to take care of them when they get lung cancer, brain damage from pot or other drugs, liver disease from drinking too much alcohol, or mental problems from being on their tech toys for 12 hours a day.
[beam]poor babies, why should students at a state university be allowed to smoke on campus and we the privet citizen can not smoke in any public place?! wonder if they know what karma is???[smile]
Chuckles, what does Obama's election victory have to do with a smoking ban at ASU? Someone get that boy a whaaaaaaaaaaaaambulance!!!
Chuckles - In case you didn't see the election results, a large majority of your fellow Americans disagree with you. You're one of them MINORITIES.
This says it all, to me, "Ryan Zambonini, a business management communications senior, who has been a smoker for a little over a year"Tell us Ryan, was it peer pressure, style, or just sheer stupidity that would cause a, supposedly, intelligent adult to start inhaling toxic chemicals.So, you have proven health problems with smoking, wasted time when they should be studying or working, but also the cost of picking up the butts that smokers feel empowered to throw onto the ground wherever they may be when finished with the smoke, not to mention the problems with sewer system and the environment that must absorb them.Grow up, you little brats, and get a life without smoke.
I seriously cant believe the above comments im reading. For those of you saying they must have voted for obama it shows you really dont understand the issues. These students are members of Students for LIBERTY not some left-winged socialist group ur assuming they are, in fact they are the most staunch opponents to Obama because he treats the constitution like trash and i can guarantee not one of them voted liberal. Your putting them in the same category as democrats which is pretty ironic because they are the very people they fight the hardest against. I dont understand why you think they support the nanny state... your brain must not be able to process mildly complex issues such as these. The very issue they bring up is against the nanny state and as for all the other issues you brought up "Transfat? banned. Big sodas? Banned. Happy Meals? Banned. Guns on campus? Banned. 'Controversial' speech by conservatives(hate speech) Banned. Religion? Banned. Prayer? Banned. The list goes on." Do your research, they support none of these and are actually more upset about them as you are. To the person that claims its not public land, sorry to break it to you but yes. Yes it is public. The simple fact that it is a STATE school meaning it is funded by the STATE and owned by the STATE as in NOT privately owned = Public property. As a former Sun Devil i can tell you they take advantage of their power and take land over by means of imminent domain (fraternity houses) and continue to expand the school property. I assume most of you consider yourselves republicans which further depresses me because it is apparent that many of you can be just as ignorant as the liberals. God gave you a brain to think with so use it. I know its easier to go with the group and take positions before really putting any effort into it but now more than ever we need to stick together and defend our rights granted to us in the Constitution. Im not even a smoker because i feel its unhealthy but i stand behind these students 100%. When you defend our basic rights only when it is convenient, when it effects you uniquely, how can you expect others not effected by it to stand by you?
Thank you for the post, it easy for me to understand, I hope more comments appear. I am glad to find your distinguished way of writing the article, very a good manner and it entails many useful information
