Indiana University Health Center
for being insane
From aol news ...
"Before this week, employees at the Indiana University Health medical center were free to step off the nonsmoking campus and light up a cigarette. Sure, co-workers and patients would probably notice the telltale odor on the smoker's clothes, skin and breath -- especially if they happened to share an elevator -- but they could do little more than plug their nose in defense. That all changed on Monday when the medical center upgraded its policy: Employees are now prohibited from smoking during the workday. Period."
Employers (who happen to be government funded!) banning legal personal behavior of employees outside the workplace? YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!
No where in the U.S. Constitution and/or the Bill Of Rights does it give the right or authority for an entity, ANY entity, to ban an existing legal act ... unless they first pass a law to change the legal act into an act that is illegal!
What's next? Employers (or the government) deciding to ban potato chips eaten outside of work? Ice cream? Soft drinks? McDonalds? Driving your car on your lunch hour?
Employers and governments controlling your personal l-e-g-a-l behavior OUTSIDE THE WORKPLACE ... under the totally bogus guise of health or environmental reasons.
Is this another example of Americans losing their their individual God-given and LEGAL rights and freedoms? You bet it is!
Congratulations to the Indiana University Health Center. This week, for your stupid and unconstitutional rule which bans a personal and legal behavior of employees OUTSIDE THE WORK PLACE, you deservedly earned the Stu Pitt award.
