I really hate this new "tax it out of existence" trend our government seems to be taking.


It's fascism through economic oppression, nothing more.

Taxing candy wont make the fatties not fat anymore...

Heck, they've made some drugs illegal, yet people still abuse them everyday. How will a tax stop people from buying candy? Answer: It won't.

it's supposed to be a deterrent. Unfortunately I don't think it'll work very well.

Don't worry, it's alright because the government knows what's best for us. Yep, they'll treat us right.

If people actually understood how amazing this veggie was for you, they'd be taxing it instead of candy. Broccoli is a fucking miracle.

I gotta say, this just pisses me off on a whole. The government is taxing FOOD? Albeit, tasty, less important food. Still, pretty soon they'll tax the toilet you piss in...

The government is trying to get rid of things that it's lobbyist puppeteers find unappealing by taxing the living ass out of them (candy, guns, cigarettes, etc.).

Like I said earlier, it's fascism disguised as taxes.

Lol. If the government's overlords found cigarettes unappealing they'd have them outlawed (see: prohibition). Every time there's a cigarette bill the tobacco companies write it. Why do you think the bill about flavored cigarettes conveniently ignored the most popular flavor in the country (menthol)?

I actually don't mind broccoli, I never understood all the hate. It's pretty bland tasting like lettuce.

Plus when I eat it I like to pretend like I'm an herbivorous T-rex uprooting trees, gnashing them in my 9 inch long teeth and being a badass.

Edit^: That pissed me off so much when I couldn't get my goddamned cloves anymore.

Exactly did taxing cigarettes more make people stop smoking? NOPE
