    At the age of 17.5 a kid can be in the Army and ship out to war but is to young to smoke and drink. It doesn't seem that long ago that a 18 year old is able to vote. But who was that guy that wanted free birth control and was talking about student lone forgiveness to be President.

    To the New York City Council: What are you guys/gals doing?
    Do you have some kind of mommy complex?

    Whether a kid wants a BIG soft drink, or a young man back from Iraq wants a cigarette, HOW is that YOUR business?

    You make reading the paper a laugh.

    WWhat is "student lone (sic) forgiveness? And why are we talking about the president? He's not the one doing this!

    Seems smoking would be encouraged for it's tax revenue.

    Extra vacation money for those politicians who loves the country, and it's people.
