Where's the one about hanging black people from a tree? Or telling a woman to go and stay in the home as she can't even function in a real job? :eusa_think:

That is a novel argument Dogbert, the civil rights movement and feminism caused inflation.

I now pay $7.87 a pack for butts -- slightly over 22 times the amount I originally paid ($0.35) for cigarettes in 1965.

In 1965, minimum wage was $1.25 per hour.

So in order for minimum wages to have kept up with the cost of cigarettes (most of which is state and local TAXES, by the way) the minimum wage would have to be?

$26.40 per hour.

So, next time you taxpayers see a smoker lighting up?​

Thank him or her for paying some of your share of the state and local and federal taxes.​

Oh and BTW? Cigarette smokers die so early and qucikly that they end up costing far less for HC than non-smokers. (according to medicade's own numbers, too, I might add)​

And they also create a smaller burden on our social security that our non-smoking citizens, too.​

Smokers are one of your (collective) governments best CASH COWS.​

Douger....you can do a lot of shit here, but I don't think posting a snuff pic of a black man being hanged is gonna fly with the Mods.

Especially Gunnyfuck...

I'd take that one down if I were you. But....I'm not you and if you want your ass handed to you, who am I to quibble with that? :D

Carry on. :)
