Default Re: Business gone. tobacco prices up 400%

Years ago I lived in Maryland in the states briefly and had a small engineering company. What killed it is when the state of Maryland decided to increase the unemployment tax by 1800% (yes that is the right number of zeros) and I was no longer able to afford to hire anyone so I left the state. I suppose that the Australian government has decided to ban tobacco by making it too expense to buy legally. What this will do is make tobacco sales an industry controlled by organized crime.

It still shocks me to see that the Western world has become so enslaved by political correctness. I am so thankful to be in a country that preaches very little about freedom but lets you have more it then one that takes away what they praise.
