THE U.S.A. What does that stand for? I don't know anymore! What is FREEDOM? I don't know anymore! Dont you find it a mess that the more laws they create everyday the more and more your life feels endangered? What i can tell you is.... We the people of the united states of America NEED TO STAND UP ONCE AND FOR ALL!

USA? Us Stupid Americans? United Slaves of A ____ (insert your bad word for the president/congress here)?

No matter who's in office, and who's in Congress, the fringe groups get screwed. Smokers, although they were prominent in the 1900s, are swiftly becoming pushed out. I mean, movie stars used to smoke for "style" in films, and now you rarely even see someone light up on TV unless they are a "bad guy" or some sort of villianous character.

We're gonna end up getting it from behind sometime. I figure, go ahead and buy the lube, you're gonna end up needing it. Until then, go about your business, but don't forget where you put it.

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.

I've fired off several emails, and hand written letters to my congressman, and I suggest you all do too. This tax increase to me paints all tobacco users as 2nd class citizens. We shouldn't not be punished for our hobby. We see the threads of all our friends in Canada and Australia hurting to pay the ridiculous taxes. $18 for nakhla 50g? While it won't be that bad right off the bat, it'll still be bad, and is a stepping stone to further taxation.

USE YOUR VOICE!!!
