Ask the bar and resturant owners in Dallas how that is working out. Why do these dumb bastards never learn from other cities mistakes?


It is nice to go hear some music and have a beer and not leave smelling like an ashtray but the choice to smoke or not is not for the government to make. That should be up to the business owner.

Man..

I spent half my life there and it is the coolest, most beautiful place in Texas. You can't find a sweeter spot in Texas as well as most of the surrounding states. You guys let the pinkos steal that from you because you don't like hearing their faggoty noise?!?!?

Then tune them out !

If you don't like liberals...don't read the American-Statesman or Chronicle, but don't throw the baby out with the bath water. Where did you guys go when Clinton was in office for 8 years??

So you can't smoke everywhere. Big deal. I only smoke in my shop or in my car. It is no great sacrifice...and I am one of those people that think I should be able to smoke on a crowded elevator if I want to ! !

Adapt...Overcome...

Actually it's Austin, which is sort of like Texas, but not really.

Sorry brother, that's Berkeley West for you.



Uh, check your map, I think you meant Berserkley East.

ETA, I wonder if this means the BBQ joints will have to close?

I couldn't have said it better. I don't smoke, but this is freaking ridiculous! There are over 2000 smoke free restaurants in Austin, and there WERE only 212 establishments where smoking WAS allowed...but not anymore.

I feel sorry for the business owners who are going to get hammered over this. I can only imagine what this will do to "The live music capitol of the World"...

Little Berkeley on the Colorado strikes again, shooting itself in the foot with ignorant bliss. One day, when the music is hard to find and everyone talks about how great 6th Street used to be, then MAYBE the socialist ass hats will realize just what they have done. Nahhhhhhh, who am I trying to kid, the socialists NEVER will understand that they were the ones who built the gallows upon which they stand and that they tied the noose around their own fool necks.

Yep, I call it San Francisco south. Austin has less in common with the
rest of Texas than does Chicago.

I'm so glad I don't actually live *in* Austin.

Of course, my dipshit little town voted to get in on the "Austin Community College" tax plan. I figure people weren't paying high enough property taxes as it is. Fucking retards.

This is what happens when hi tech "carpetbaggers" move into a town and transform it to "the way we did it in California, Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle".

You people who live in Austin have to start voting. I know lots of people who live there who hate the pinko politicians, and there have to be lots more who feel the same way. But if you don't get politically active, donate money to the candidates who should win, and then VOTE for them, it will never change and it will spread. Don't let that happen.

The problem is that the conservatives don't actualy live *in* Austin - we're all in the suburbs.
