Well Gov gotta give you one thumb up and one thumb down. Good one on not banning smoking in nursing homes. Those old folks gotta lot more to worry about than trying to be PC and if your 90 plus who worries about the so called second hand smoke effect. Thumbs down on the retirement wouldn't voluntarily give this state a dime. Will be like social security the state will "borrow" from the fund for the train to no where and like the US government never pay it back.
The Democrats have a very poor track record of creating unsustainable programs. Here they go again. Take your money for one thing and spend it on another thing. Only a fool would voluntarily give money to the government.
Folks in retirement homes are there because they can't take care of themselves. My father caught his shirt on fire and didn't even know it. He smoked in his room at night and almost burned the home down. In the end smoking was his only pleasure. Smokers cigarets and lighters should be kept by nurses and only allowed when the nurses can keep an eye on them.
I think it would be better for these people to kick the habit. After one week they will start to feel better and not miss the smoke much.
State run retirement! the state can,t even run the state, I think Jerry needs to be drug tested!
Does anyone think of the Nurses and Doctors and other staff at these places that have to breath that smoke, smell the stench of tobacco on their patients, and clean the areas that they smoke in? I know as a non-smoker, I SHOULDN'T have to breath in smoke, where's my right to clean air? I know it's people's right to smoke, but don't trample my rights to keep yours, otherwise no one will have any rights.
