What comes next?

Once everyone has quit smoking, lost weight, what will be next? Are we then going to target people with tattoos, or multiple peircings? Or will we begin to target people because of their hair color? My point is, what is happening in America? What happened to live and let live? The idea that as long as it's not hurting someone else, violating a law, and is between consenting adults, you should let it be?

  • Yeah, I try to keep an open mind about people because we are all different. I have my opinions and it is just my way of life. I dont press them on people and I dont think the government should either. I think it is illegal for them to put special taxes on cigarettes to fund certain things that will benefit all but I do think it is lawful to ban smoking in public places because it is unhealthy. Tattoos.... well I will be pissed if they start picking on those people. It is hurting no one but them in any way what so ever

  • Wasn't trying to start drama, was simply asking a question, a serious question. All this talk about others, what happens when these issues are over with, what will be the next issue. Maybe this is the way to start a new Eden, with nothing but perfect people walking around? What happens when all the blonds are suddenly the downtrodden?

  • What are you talking about? Nobody is quitting anything. We're too much of a gluttonous society to quit.

  • People are encouraged to stop smoking and quit being overweight because both of those things are unhealthy...but no one has ever FORCED anyone to quit smoking or lose weight. So I can't say that I'm sure how anyone is being targeted.

  • Who knows. Some people just need someone to look down on to make themselves feel better. Don't let em get to you.
