    Shoes are luxurious.
    So is underwear.
    Furniture.
    Forks.
    Sporting events.
    Televisions are, telescreens are not.
    Newspapers.
    Internet.
    Radio.
    Medical supplies, medical care.


    What do you want taxed again?
    posting leftwing blather on a computer is certainly a luxury. Most people in the world don't have computers or internet access and many don't even have electricity

    If you can liberally squander someone else's money, what's the point in being socialist?

    I thought most leather came from cattle. I also don't think horses are raised for their hide, are they? I believe in making use of all parts of animals that are killed for whatever reason. The horses go for dogfood or human consumption,and glue don't they? So of course, by all means use the hide.
    I was a vegetarian for a while when I was young. I found I didn't like vegetarians/vegans much. Most in my opinion are mentally unstable. It's almost like a cult and I think they'd be much happier and healthier if they'd eat a steak once in a while. I eat tons of meat now. I refuse to eat veal because of how it is raised, however i wouldn't want it banned. Let the free market work.
    agreed. I don't know if minks are used for food but I recall doing a dissection of a mink in HS AP biology

    and yeah, it was as naked as a newborn

    You need to pause to think more.

    Exactly, many people do not have the items listed, but others want to define what they don't have as a luxury to be taxed.

    When the first liberal Bush was elected president, he was stupid enough to go along with the Left's moronic tax increases on "luxuries". So the lower and middle class men who built the boats and airplanes the "rich" purchased lost their jobs.

    Luxury taxes are proposed by morons who can only follow the class-envy directions of their (wealthy) leaders.

    Not sure, I'm in Minnesota and it feels like we can't get warm enough. Sometimes, fur just seems logical.

    Who cares? It's still using an animal for it's skin, even if you're getting something else out of it. Would you change your mind if, for instance, we started making mink steaks?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Viable Reason #1: People want to buy it.

    No other reason is needed.
