Default Re: Proposed Bill to Raise Federal Tax on Pipe Tobacco

A tax on tobacco should not be compared to slavery or a lack of freedom. While we are far from the most free a person can be we are given allowances and freedoms that many would and do kill for.

I am proud to live in a place where actual action can be taken by the public to prevent such things. And this can be done in a way that we do not put ourselves at risk of execution or imprisonment.

We live a disgustingly comfortable life and some find it easy to take unpleasantness a displeasing things as major infractions on human rights.
