Liberals won't rest until they control your life

You can now be fined $100 in California for smoking while in a car with a minor. According to the bill's author, state Senator Jenny Oropeza, Democrat, no less, "Protecting the health of our children is among government's highest responsibilities. It is clear that increasing public awareness about the dangers of secondhand smoke is the right thing to do."


Maybe I'm missing something, but as far as I can tell the science on the dangers of secondhand smoke is only slightly more convincing than that behind the human caused global warming nonsense.

If it truly is among government's highest responsibilities to protect the health of children, we need to get on with banning those things which evidence actually shows are dangerous to infant babies and other assorted children, like dogs, cars, and swimming pools. And, of course, liberals.
