Ironic.....local American politicians enact socialist (smoking ban) laws more readily than communist ChinaEven though smoking bans bankrupt thousands of businesses and eliminate tens of thousands of jobs, U.S. state and municipal lawmakers continue to enact these ordinances despite recent air quality testing which prove there is no workplace health hazard.
Meanwhile in communist China where the government knows a thing or two about implementing laws for the "collective good of the people" ......even these communists understand the hazards of passing laws based on falsified information.
"...Beijing's first smoke-free restaurant chain faces going out of business after its customers deserted it in droves after the (voluntary) ban was enforced, state media reported on Friday.....Beijing authorities had written to 30,000 restaurants asking them to put smoking bans in place, but not a single one had taken up the suggestion, the paper said
It's definitely a sign of the times when communist China understands the free market system better than U.S. lawmakers. There are far too many special interests and socialist liberal politicians in office here.
