New FAT tax

Recommended Posts

Why is it everything addictive is being taxxed?It is getting to the point that the only way to fix this out of control government is by revolution.Maybe a new tea party not just in boston but america wide every state.Cigs to beer and now soda whats next brown hair tax?We the people are only suposed to be taxed 1 time...But when i look around i pay 101 taxes nothing is sacred anymore from human rights to qaulity of living.Well people our government has officially become the PROBLEM when it comes to citizens , freedom and quality of life...Life liberty and the pursuit of happiness is becoming a wives tale.

They have been talking about raising the tax on sugary drinks here in NYC and I think it's a great idea. People put so much crap into their bodies they don't need and now we have a huge problem with obesity, and people who take care of themselves have to pay extra for other people who don't. If you can discourage people from eating total junk you should. If little kids had to pay an extra $1 for a can of soda loaded with corn syrup, they would probably choose water or diet soda instead and everyone would be better off.

I have actually had this 'debate' with people quite alot recently. I like to take my golf clubs away with me on holiday even if I only get to use them once. Why should I pay an extra ?40 to do so, when there is a whale sitting next to me?

 

Some people think it is unfair to impose a fat tax on them because "its a medical condition". Well boohoo, what they really should be doing is telling these people that the cure for being fat is NOT HAMBURGERS AND CHOCOLATE!

 

disclaimer: there are a small minority of fat people this does not apply to, and i feel sorry for them. As for the rest, stop being lazy and greedy.

Singleing out 1 section leads to extortion of all americans eventually...

70 percent of america is overwieght no wonder they single out that segment.So government now becomes a dietician and it all of a sudden cares about unhealthy living?Please the beer tax and the cig tax where not enough so now they single out soda drinkers to it is injustice.They should be taxing big CORPS that moved jobs over seas to save money while creating less jobs in america.

All i can say is it is wrong and the government needs to figure out how to do things right.Enough laying the blame and responcibility on the already over taxed populous.We have the smartest and brightest people in control of our government yet they cant do anything but pass the buck on to the already extorted citizens of this country.I say screw all the puppets being paid by lobbyists and it is time to prosecute those not protecting or constitutional rights...

Well, people do smoke less because of the cigarette tax. If something's harmful there's nothing wrong with making it cost more. Obviously if close to 70% of the population is overweight, people are making poor decisions about diet and excercise, and if the government can help encourage healthy behaviour what's wrong with that?

Lol, this is getting a bit too political for me. I just felt like having a comical pop at the fatties.

 

Carry on guys, I shall read in silence. I find it interesting, but try to avoid saying anything political lest I make a fool of myself!

I can make up my own mind no government needs to tell me how to live.They work for us or thats the way it was set up 2 be.What we have today is a evil empire not a government protecting our rights.

And these things effect many people daily things need to be addressed.I could careless how silly it looks talking about the abuse of power by a out of control government.If my job performance was like the governments i would be jobless and homeless...

Well, we could probably both grow old discussing politics on the forum and not get anywhere. Peace.

Socialism is a *****. Universal Health care to government run corporations. I love seeing my rights being taken away by **** hippy liberals, seeing the economy fail, and watching jobs disappear. Its just going to get worse and may never get better. I am paying for Social Security I'll never see when I turn 65. On top of everything else, my bread and butter (the oil field) is completely ****ed atm. Glad Obama could bring us some Change(I literally need some.)

 

 

P.S. Macain / Palin wouldn't of been any better IMO. I am not biased to any party.

Yeah lets bail out the Coke companies after they go bankrupt. Sounds real good. More of my money lost and more jobs lost.

Talking about lifes hurdles is a good way to release frustration.Seeing how no citizen can realy change how government exploits us.It may be to late to give future generations a better life.....Most americans bend over and spread em for government thats why we have this big mess that WILL only get worse.But hey for all we know what we discuss may influence someone to do something besides take it in the booty.Like 2pac said i may not change the world but my words may inspire someone who will...

What i actually meant was that it never takes long for people to start insulting... its ok to discuss, but when you start going to a personal level, thats just stupid... and politics discussions usually end up on a personal level.... thats what i was trying to say anyway....
