    For those of you who like a nice cigar, be prepared to pay dearly for the right. The libs want to tax the crap out of cigars to help pay for another welfare giveaway. (See link). They of course argue that only rich fatcats like cigars, and some of the links show pictures of Rush with a big cigar. So the lefties say the rich should pay. Most real afficionados probably will be willing to pay another $10 for a good cigar, but still, the nanny-state libs are at it again. Our President Bush has to veto this idiotic lefty legislation. I bet he will.

    The tax situation per cigar now on this link, and you'll see some of the lib states have huge taxes already on cigars, and normal states have low to no taxes on a cigar:

    Smoking is vile, those that do so should pay! The governments at all levels are laying sanctions, which are sure to work, just like prohibition.

    Frothing at the mouth is pretty vile, too, but people aren't overly taxed for that...

    You aren't trying to shit me again are you, shattered?


    I thought it was like yesterday or something?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!? Is the topic still relevant or is it just something you have already thought about and made up your mind and don't want to hear about anymore?

    JK, shattered.

    The smoke will kill me sooner or later. What are you smoking?

    Obviously, nothing that comes close to the potency of what you've been smoking...
