    A Progressive Approach to Buying Groceries

    We all know about the progressive income tax - the more you make, the more you pay. Would you support that idea at the grocery store as well? If you make over a certain amount, you have to pay an inflated price for your gallon of milk. If you make under a certain amount, you get the gallon of milk for free or for very little money.

    Would this work in our society? Would you approve of it?

    Re: A Progressive Approach to Buying Groceries

    Is a grocery store the same as a government? If not, it's a stupid question.

    Well, if you would agree that it's a good idea, the government would have to be part of it. If you think it's a stupid question, then feel free to not return to the thread.

    There is nothing wrong with pointing out the huge, gaping, massive, insane problems with poll questions. Your little trap poll relies on two things that are different being the same. This is Glenn Beck style piss poor logic.

    There is no "trap". If you don't think it's a good idea, say so. If you do, say so. What's the trap?

    Of course it is, someone will say no, and then you or someone else will say then why are you for a progressive tax!!!! It's ridiculous.

    Wait what? You specifically compare them, and then say they are not the same thing. If they are not the same thing, you can logically expect them to be handled differently. This is not rocket surgery.

    How else do you make a budget with groceries?
    I take a piece of paper and a pen every single time I go grocery shopping.
    Feel lost without it.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
