KS State Sen David Wysong - Another Hypocrite

Well, that's my opinion anyway.

He is the the individual that introduced SB 37 this session which would create a statewide smoking ban in Kansas.

What did I do? I emailed him. Suggested he visit this blog so he could read the info about alcohol. Asked him some brief questions about alcohol.

All he could muster: "Thank you for your input"

That's good senator, go for the smokes, but let the booze run rampant.

Gettin' drunk cheap in South Carolina

Wow, I bet these hypocrites are proud of themselves. This appeared in the 1/19/07 edition of the Kansas City Star. The link is:

Just in case the link is outdated, here is the piece:

Make it a double — and halve the price

COLUMBIA, S.C. You’ve heard of "Happy Hour," but how about "Happy Day?"
All-day drink specials could become a reality in South Carolina. A state House subcommittee Wednesday approved legislation that would allow bars and restaurants to choose one day a week, except Sundays, for all-day specials on liquor drinks.
Currently, businesses can sell and advertise liquor drink specials from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. only.


Note the total hypocrisy with regards to not allowing this on Sunday.

Don't smoke folks, but have a cheap drunk. Maybe kill or severely injure somebody. Go home and beat the crap out of your significant other, and maybe even rape that lady that didn't want to have anything to do with you. Get drunk cheap, but don't smoke.

Another "what next?" takes place in Bangor Maine

Well, here we go........looks like the City of Bangor Maine has now made it a punishable offense to smoke in a car with children present. Yepper...........$50 and it's a "primary" offense, which means law enforcement can stop a driver for that item alone.

More info at:

That's right folks. Don't smoke in your cars with kids present (actually the concept is good, it just shouldn't be a law), but keep feeding that idiot at the bar more booze so he or she can destroy those kids' lives in a matter of seconds.

Shawnee City Council 12/11/06

On December 11, 2006 I exercised my rights to address the Shawnee City Council.

Needless to say my comments were about the hypocrisy of smoking bans without doing anything about alcohol. I even used some figures regarding alcohol related crimes within the city limits of Shawnee.

What struck me as funny was a comment by one of the council members, Kevin Straub who is one of the 3rd ward representatives.

Mr Straub is quoted in the 12/13/06 issue of the Shawnee Dispatch as saying: "We aren't going to vote against smoking bans just because there are worse things out there."

Strange comment. First, is he using the term "we" to really mean "I" (himself), or is he attempting to speak for the entire City Council?

This is one arrogant, sanctimonious individual. He also brought up the Nevada law that was recently passed by the voters regarding smoking. What he failed to mention is that:

1. The law is being litigated on constitutional grounds
2. The law is hypocritical in that it specifically exempts the gaming areas of the casinos.
