The JackBooted Thugs are on the prowl, and have begun brutalizing a 77-year-old woman who committed an Unpardonable Crime: buying butts online, thus avoiding the State's tax. The Granny in question simply saw a "good deal" on prices and went for it.
She will learn: NEVER get between a politician and their Tax Revenue Schemes.
(Tea, anyone? Meet at the harbor....)
The State's Department of ScrewingtheCitizens expects to initiate collection actions against another 500 or so Verminous Scofflaws in the next 60 days.
The State's action was applauded by the Wisconsin Grocer's Association--(certainly a different 'face' than the one presented by the cute little Roundy's Man of the 1950's, eh?) which bemoans the loss of .....who knows?....Zillions of dollars in lost sales revenues.
Wisconsin Grocers' apparently believes that they have a RIGHT to your cigarette dollars, and they are perfectly happy to let the JBT's take your money on their behalf.
In what could only be called a brilliant political finesse, the Republicans allowed the sitting Democrat Administration to be the bad guys--but do not be decieved: the Republicans are just as addicted to Tax Revenues as the Dems ever were.
This is why someone invented the term Party of Government. I would suggest that the acronym for Party of Government should be PIG--but that's for others to decide.
Although there is no apparent relationship between this entry and the one below, there is. If you can't figure it out, you need to spend more time on FreeRepublic.
