Ouch. I say that now to avoid the rush as the new tobacco tax attaxs on Wednesday. I'm one of those 'unholier-than-thous' who has never taken so much as a puff off a cigarette-and I hate the new tax. Why?
It is supposed to benefit the nefarious S-chip child health program, but the truth is: "Gummint craves money like vampires crave A-Negative or B-Positive." Everything is justified as it's "For The Children". Hog washed eggplants, friends. The Obama Financial Recovery Program is set to put the great-grandkids of our kids in hock to the tune of $900,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 or so dollars...so that President Obama can create the Nanny State of America 2009. That is child abuse, putting our kids kids in slavery to a government which is supposed to keep them free.
President Obama, if you Really want to do GOOD "For The Children":
1: Stop protecting laws which make their murder legal. You know the ones I mean.
2: Teach the children of America fiscal responsibility...by setting a good example. Rather than pointing fingers at the allegedly greedy private sector, wash the greed out of Washington first (you know, "Change Washington" as you promised you would while on the campaign trail.).
3: Merit pay for teachers who actually do a good job of educating children. Fire all the rest. You'd be amazed at how enthusiastic teachers will become about teaching when it's the only alternative to a pink slip.
President Obama, if you have to break the teachers unions in order to improve Education...it's worth it.
It would be "For The Children".
