Oh, I get it...It is my right to fill a room with chemicals that are toxic
to you because I enjoy the buzz.

Don't get me wrong...I don't smoke cigs, but I do smoke cigars. If someone
objects, it's out...unless I just want to piss them off, which I see as MY
right :-).

Actually, Eric, it is a right.

The Ninth Constitutional Amendment specifies:

"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be
construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

The idea of a Bill of Rights worried some of the founders greatly. They
feared that, by listing rights not to be infringed by the government, rights

that were not listed might be subject to government interference because
such interference was not specifically prohibited. The Ninth Amendment was
written in an attempt to preclude such abuse.
