Cigarette tax hurting the poor?
I think that the cigarette tax is saving the lives of the poor. I moved into an engineering office in 1979 and then retired from there in 2000. There were approximately 250 employees at that location, half smoked and half didn't. By 2000 most of the smokers has died from smoking related illnesses such as cardiovascular, heart, or cancer. Of the none smokers then and now most of them are still alive and enjoying their retirement. So, don't give me the crap about taxes being a bad thing. Smoking is one of the evils of this world that gradually takes over peoples lives, takes away their ability to enjoy life, and then takes their lives away altogether. Corporate tobacco wants your money, nothing more. And they will kill you in the process of getting it. Don't be a sucker, kick it, don't get started, stay alive, have fun while you can.
