Common sense and common courtesy

Hi, LibBerte, What a fantastic idea. You have my wholehearted support. It seems there have been some minor victories in New York - including some stay re a smoking ban in state parks. "'We won't be issuing tickets. Right now, it's a policy based in common sense and common courtesy,' said Keefe..." In that case it was predicated on a threatened lawsuit that drew on "the non-delegation doctrine of the state Constitution, Article II, Section 1, which states "the legislative power of this state shall be vested in the Senate and Assembly." It was accused that "These bans were imposed by bureaucratic fiat, not legislated law and on that basis alone, they're unconstitutional..." (If only we could use that same principle to apply to the federal gov't and fiat laws imposed by "czars.") http://www.legislativegazette.com/Articles-Top-Stories-c-201...

Re smoking, using common sense and common courtesy is how it should operate everywhere - upon a foundation of respect for private property and individual liberty. Btw, I loved the video clip.
