Beer Tax

After watching the news tonight, I have been having a good laugh at the tavern owners crying the blues over the proposed beer tax increase.
A few months ago when they raised the tax on Tabacco products these people had no problem with it because it didn't affect them. Now when they may have to pay more taxes you hear the whining and crying and it is the most terrible thing that could happen. I really don't care about either one myself, but it sure gives me a good chuckle.

It is OK to screw somebody else with higher taxes but leave me alone or I am going to cry all over the TV news. :lol:

Scout,
If my one of my escapes (beer) from all the higher taxes I'm going to pay for all of the bail outs & folks who were fortunate enough to be driving crappy enough cars to get a gov't freebie on the "cash for clunkers" AND get taxed further for my "benefits" from my employer, then I feel I have the right to whine about a higher beer tax.
