Vote “Yes” on Question 1 to Eliminate the Sales Tax of 6.25% on Alcohol

Hey…

A couple of thoughts…

First, here’s the blurb on the alcohol tax issue…

But secondly, I can just hear all you non-drinkers out there saying, “Well, it serves those boozers right… The cost of alcohol consumption to our society is outrageous! Tax them back to the Stone Age! “ One small problem – taxing alcohol simply suckles the warm teat of the “Sin Tax” Mama. True, booze is more detrimental than garden salads. But what next? A case of beer already costs $20, and a carton of cigarettes costs a mind-numbing $80. The ingredients for those products cost virtually nothing, but the taxes* are stifling. (* Yes, Anheuser-Busch, the distributor Louis Knife, and Bruce Gibson all have to pay taxes…)

Mark these words Fatty McButter Pants… There are more “Sin Taxes” to come from Big Mama. There’s already talk of a sugar tax in NYC, and a fast food tax in Virginia… Is nothing safe??? Even if we try to live perfect lives we get socked in the gym

We all have a vested interest in this one… Tell Gov’ment Big Mama to stop taxing and go on a diet of her own!

Vote “Yes!” on question 1!!!

P.S. It’s now official, the word search contest is wide open to all who dare!!!
