This offers a platform for companies to publish their own evaluations and people to quickly post evaluations without the business in question's capability to professionally fix the issue. Furthermore, no business would offer an unfavorable referral; only those that are extremely favorable. None of these are ideal characteristics for consumers looking for totally impartial reviews and recommendations. It is advised to use these approaches as an informed customer and think about the info source for what it deserves.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Where To Go For A Great Southern Summer Vacation?
I Want To Go For A Great Southern Vacation This Summer. Somewhere Great For Families...We Have An 18M Old. And That Has Old Historic Homes, Rich In American History, Has A Fun Bed And Breakfast And Can Go See The Beach. It Would Be Awesome To See The Homes With The Underground Railroad And Old Plantation Homes. Im From Wyoming So I Don'T Even Know Where To Start Looking. Any Suggestions?
Please please make sure you will have air conditioning that works. It is sooooo hot down there. I would suggest the Charleston, South Carolina through Savanagh Georgia area. There is SO much to see. And tons of georgeous beaches. I highly recommend Hunting Island near Beaufort, SC. It is natural and has live oaks right on the beach. The planations around Charleston are amazing and the old market is really cool. Great food and fabulous lodging in Charleston, with friendly people.
Conservatives, When It Comes To No Smoking...?
I Am Also A Conservative, But I Think That I May Feel Different Than Most Of The Party When It Comes To My View On Smoking. Although I Feel That People Have The Right To Smoke If They Want To, I Think It Should Be Banned In Public Places (Such As College Campuses). I Can'T Stand To Be Stuck Behind A Smoker When I Am Walking To Class On Campus. Not Only Does It Smell Bad, But It Impeded My Breathing And I Know That I Am Breathing Unfiltered Carcinogens. That Person Has The Right To Smoke, But Don'T I Have The Right To Breathe Clean Air?
First, Blue and Weapon X need a good blasting for the ignorance of their posts. Not only are their posts entirely untrue but they make a huge blanket statement that could never be considered substantiable by any reasonable person.
Once again it is a typical part of the Demagogue ploy to blame all problems from bad weather to dirty diapers on us awful, mean, nasty, selfish Conservatives . . .
Now let me point out that these Demagogue trolls are scampering about giving thumbs down to any post which does not laud liberals and slam conservatives.
You need to consider a few things.
First, there is the health of the smoker, which apparently isn't an issue if he/she still smokes knowing the facts;
There are 600 (I.e. sodium cyanide, arsenic, warfarin, etc, etc) deadly toxins ADDED to cigarettes during the manufacturing process.
Nicotinin is used industrially as an insecticide and is the principal ingredient in Mustard Gas and other chemical warfare agents.
Second, there is the health of healthy people around the smoker, which suffers considerably.
Third, there is the health of those who have asthma or other respiratory conditions which respond poorly to cigarette smoke. I can't enter or leave any building without traversing a gauntlet of smokers gathered around the door, so close that their smoke blows right into the building each time the door is opened. This is true at hospitals, hotels, restaurants, theaters, and every workplace I have ever been.
I have to carry and often use a rescue inhaler for exactly this reason, and frequent use of it is detrimental to my health. No matter where I go, be it a parking lot, public park, bicycle/fitness trail or even a remote campground, whenever a group of people is encountered, SOMEone is emitting that toxic smoke. It is virtually inescapable unless I decide I don't need to breathe anymore.
Fourth, there is the extensive property damage done by smoke. After any fire, any wooden structural supports which receive smoke damage are presumed compromised and often have to be replaced. Hotel rooms where people smoke are totally unsuitable forever to anyone who does not smoke. The only way to cure the problem is to strip and repaint the walls and replace all the carpets and furnishings. Cars in which people smoke are similarly unsuitable and cannot be made usable by people with serious smoke allergies.
Fifth, there is the cost of insurance and fire protection necessitated by smokers. Buildings which allow any smoking at all must understandably pay a considerable amount more for insurance to cover damage from fire, smoke and even the occasional carpet crater from falling ashes.
The list just keeps going and going and . . . , but I am very much against the social irresponsibility exerted by the tobacco industry and inherent in its customers as well as the corruption of its vassals in Congress, be they liberal or conservative.
Oh, the US tobacco industry is alive and well. It is just that it no longer supports the American paychecks from which it draws its sustenance.
Like the rest of the industry, it has outsourced to China. Does that mean the industry has changed its stripes and the industry argument is invalid? I'd be interested to see your logic on that one.
Consider the fact that most bars have a poor ventilation system and retain most of the smoke, and that the workers in the bars are exposed constantly to these conditions throughout their work shift. Bearing in mind what is IN that smoke, the resulting conditions can be similar to the black-lung disease suffered by miners but can happen much more quickly. Bear in mind that most deaths in fires are caused by smoke inhalation.
And about choosing a different route between classes,
1) Why should *I*, the one who is just going about his routine, be forced to modify my path of travel and take excessive amounts of time getting where I need to be just because someone else has chosen to place his PRIVILEGE to smoke at a higher priority than my RIGHT to breathe?!?!
That would be like me eating ten jars of sauerkraut and then walking along in front of you with the inevitable gastric byproducts polluting your air, except that in the case of the gastric pollution, that is at least natural, is not a chosen event and does not endanger your life.
2) What happens when EVERY route available has at least one person smoking and there is no way to get from point a to point b? This is not an unreasonable question, as it happens routinely. I know because I have a lot of problems with smoke, and so I always know quickly (in a manner which places my health and even my life at risk) when I have encountered it.
Stonewall, You ignore the lingering effect of that smoke, and you ignore the extreme sensitivity many people have to that smoke. It is not our fault, and we are not making it up.
Yes, a few seconds of exposure ARE going to hurt me. Those few seconds ARE going to make me sick for the rest of the day and interfere with my ability to do my job or complete my studies as well as to maintain my health during the flu season, where illness attacks any weakened immune system.
Think about it, really.
