I an not the least bit pretty, so do I get a refund, or a stimulus payment?.....

Truth rings hollow in empty heads.
the government already has a racket in the hair industry: cosmetology licenses.
They teach you basically nothing in hair school...it really doesn't matter where you go, it's a worthless endeavor pretty much across the board.
You learn how to do hair by assisting at a studio and basically being taught by the people that already work there.
So why do people go to beauty school?
Because it's illegal (in a lot of states, including NY and PA but not NJ, I think) to operate without a cosmetology license...which you can only get from...a beauty school.
And beauty schools have to...pay big piles of money to the government to be "certified".
And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
His first order of business was to fire everyone, that was an impressive start, IMO.
Let's see how Steele pulls it together, and what role Jindal and Palin have in shaping the Republican party. Hopefully, they get back to basics.
Pain can be such a beautiful thing
I propose an ugly tax.

The question I have is why barbershops and salons were exempted from charging sales tax in the first place. That seems pretty stupid to me.
Why should barbers and hair stylists get special tax advantages?
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
It is the spirit of "Change".
Government knows best, you're just a drone for the state.
History clearly shows people will reduce the activity being taxed, and just as the luxury tax was imposed during The Clinton's reign, the boating industry tanked and they had to quietly repeal the tax. There will be black markets. people will skirt government penalties. Just ask Geithner, Rangel, Daschle, Killefer, Richardson... to name but a few.
Eventually we will get somebody in there that will slash taxes... but first we have to go through the Carteresque pain that is mounting. The only good thing coming from this is Obama is left standing alone holding the bag of feces. It's his... all his. It's his page in history. Obama and Marx... Obama and Chirac... Obama and Schroeder... Obama and Trudeau. What lovely company he keeps.
We know the Dems won't be affected by the tax increases... they don't pay them.

I AM DEPLORABLE.
NEVER CRIMINAL HILLARY (S-NY)
You know... when I overextend my budget, I cut spending. I don't go try and steal money from someone else to pay my bills.
****ing government can do the same.
