    Default Smoking is once again permitted in the U.S. House of Representatives.

    ^ Truth! Going for the big issues. Guns and smokes are once again allowed in Congress.

    No doubt they have their sights set on the despised EPA in addition to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

    Well, they will have to have 'someone' empty the ashtrays, no ? They don't seem to trust stuff from the Surgeon General, do they ?

    Make the trumpists sign a health waiver for all smoking related issues in the future. They cannot complain about that.

    Problem is, the non-smokers will suffer right along with them.

    Time for an OSHA complaint, maybe?

    It’s about freedom.

    https://www.newsweek.com/republican-...-nehls-1773789

    Republican Representative Troy Nehls has said that smoking cigars in the U.S. Capitol is "about freedom" following a number of reports of an apparent uptick in smoking among GOP members of the House of Representatives.

    Nehls, who represents Texas' 22nd congressional district, spoke to Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Friday with three cigars visible in his left breast pocket and criticized the focus some journalists have placed on Republican's smoking.

    A number of members of the press corps recently highlighted the fact that smoking seems to have become more commonplace now that the GOP is in the House majority.

    Paul Ryan's Big New Office Reeks of Cigarette Smoke
    And taxpayers will foot the bill to get the stank out.

    The Speaker office, Paul Ryan said this week, stinks of stale cigarette smoke from his predecessor, John Boehner, a heavy smoker who once said he wouldn't seek the White House partly because he might then have to kick the habit.

    "You know when you ever go to a hotel room or get a rental car that has been smoked in? That's what this smells like," Ryan said on NBC's Meet The Press on Sunday.

    While smoking has been outlawed in nearly all of America's workplaces— including bars in most states—it is still allowed in the offices of our elected officials. Here's why, according to The New York Times:

    The District of Columbia has strict laws prohibiting smoking in public spaces. But Congress, as the basic overlords of the district, eluded that ban by making sure that the district's laws and regulations did not apply to "the functions or property of the federal government," which include the Capitol. So members may indeed smoke in their offices.
    .
    .
    When former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi moved into another of Boehner's offices after losing her gavel, officials on Capitol Hill replaced carpets and curtains and peeled the paint off the walls and repainted them, according toThe Times. Ryan, meanwhile, said he would rely on an "ozone machine" to take the smell out. New carpeting is expected to come later.

    And you, the taxpayer, are going to pay for it.
    Their freedom, your cleaning bill. Murica!

    Can we confine them to a 'smoking section' ?

    An ass on an Ass, I like that, but considering the animals welfare, a hobby horse might be more appropriate.

    Republicans are proving their entertainment value. Impeach, investigate, anything to make a splash! We haven’t had as much fun since the orange turd was in office.

    I may have stopped seeing the trees for the forest, having quit butts some years back.

    Here is a smoking lounge I just came upon in CDG( Paris) this morning.

    Here in Carriacou, folks still light up in most any restaurants , with the caveat that most are semi outdoors and the stink o weed prevails.

    Is the new rule just for tobacco, or can they smoke other things as well? Asking for a friend.
