    being happy means you are alive to be happy. I watched my mother die of lung cancer and she did not smoke. silly to say no goverment when you most likley are in support of the drug war that is killing so many people and no end in sight. booze kills more people than all the drugs and it is legal. but Al capones gang fell apart after they made booze legal

    It sure would be nice if government decided that they didn't need to regulate everything we do, have done or may contemplate doing and then taxing us to do it. Whatever happened to freedom for the pursuit of happiness, that has been taken over by special interests and their cronies in public office?

    Some Mayors do a decent job; the less they regulate generally the better off the people are who they govern.
