    This is irrelevant to my statement, or the one you made about this tax being racist.



    Nothing but silly hyperbole.

    This has again nothing to do with your comments or my response to them.
    Tell you what.... how about we tax ethnic products. They are used to make people feel better about the way they look just like tanning. Put a tax on makeup? Isn't it all a luxury and not a need, hair spray, nail polish, deoderant..... We could also tax those that work outside for a living as that is not good for you too. Then we could tax those that never see the sunlight as well.


    I think we as Americans pay enough in taxes. We as americans should all just sit down and look at the big picture. All of these taxes are wrong. This is what our forefathers fought against. Boston tea party ring a bell???? If we could just get past our petty differences, people in this country could see that the problems that matter are the people at the top. I say fire them all and show them we are the boss and they work for us..

    It is a "luxury" tax, not a "race" tax. This is a fact. So your statement is irrelevant to my own.

    Better yet what does it have to so with my statement to someone else?

    All of the taxes are not wrong. Even the founding fathers figured that one out in Short order.

    Ummm, no. They did not fight against taxation. They fought against taxation without representation. HUGE difference. We are represented (even if shabbily) by the house and senate who we vote for.

    I agree for the most part, but again this has little to do with my statements.
