Tho it doesn't deter those from buying. Wish tobacco sales would just go away. That would solve many medical issues. And create lower insurance costs.

Only, ONLY, as long as that revenue went to preventative education and healthcare.

Absolutely! It would deter tobacco use and would also spread the tax burden to another population besides home owners.

I guess the government want's to rip as much tax as possible before the smokers all die.

No it's not going to help, some people will just steal to get the money. They need something that will really help you to quit smoking. I've tried patches, gum, pills and nothing works.

Becoming a union member saved my life and changed the direction of my life, being a single mom of two with no child support. I vigorously approve of unions.

My brief stint as a first line manager convinced me that workers need unions. I saw how upper management, in that setting, really wanted to treat workers.

I worked for a union and later belonged to a union. The downfall of America's middle class correlates directly with the downfall of unions, beginning at least 30 years ago.

Um, what was the question? Anyway, wouldn't you have had to have a job to be in a union? And wouldn't you have to be able to read to have a job?
