    You can tax the crap out of soft drinks, I don't drink them.
    Ian, you should visit one of your VA hospitals you would be amazed at how much good you personally, could do. Instead of relying on your govn to do everything. Everyone some where in their lives has a skill they can offer. They need so much. One of the things I do, is to teach signing, ASL, to a newly, needing vet & to their families. The second thing I do, is when the Vets are diagnosed with the big C, I am there to show them, I am living proof you can survive, the third thing, I won't tell anyone, lol, because it is too funny. Terry knows and he is sworn to secrecy.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again - "Ian" is clearly just baiting us for the fun of it.

    Yeah, but at least he has a sense of humor, I'll give him that, at times I laugh cause he can be funny. I think, if more people laughed more and saw the humor in things the world would be a much kinder place.

    Hello All,

    Yes it is nice for someone to get on their soapbox. Especially now that all the soaps have been canceled on the TV.

    Unemployed people have to have something to do, Keep their mind thinking.

    What gets me is that almost everyone that I know works for the government, or works for Wal-mart.

    That must be 50 percent of all Americans that have work.

    And 20 percent of the homeless are Veterans. This picture is WRONG.

    Guess it is good that the world ends tomorrow...


    Enjoy the day, Take time to play.

    Party Hardy, Until the day you die...

    That's my plan, and I am sticking to it.

    Legalizing all recreational drugs, with a hefty tax, along with the soft drink and cat food tax, would cut all government costs by the cost of 10 Iraqi wars.

    Think of all those murderers in the the jungles of south america having to go back to farming coffee!

    Why not cat food Cookie ?

    I buy it, and I pay sales tax on it also, in Texas.

    Here everything is a Fee instead of tax. Same thing...

    Ice cream is next... Ice Cream Fee. Or sin tax.

    It is a sin if you can afford Ice Cream.

    Cat Food should not be taxed, Because People do eat it. Caned with Crackers is best.

    I hear that it does taste good.

    It is taxed because it is a prepared food.

    Un-prepared food is not taxed.

    Wont mater after today anyway, LOL.


    Have a Great Night.

    Sardines and canned salmon on sale are cheaper than cat food, and canned at a slightly higher level of freshness.

    AH, but nothing fresher than going fishing! and, the cost is only a license and gas to get there and back. And, bait. And a rod. Maybe, cheaper to buy a can. but, certainly, not as much fun.

    Oh, yeah, tuna... contains mercury. But, I never catch much other than a bluegill. BUT, one time I did catch someone's fishing rod, on it was a boot, in the boot was a snake, the snake had a trout. It was great. And, true. And, weird.

    I was looking for a wallet. With money.

    The world didn't end, so I guess I will either have to continue paying for my Lamborghini, or let them repo it.
