The government happily collects and spends tax money from cigarettes



Does the government really want people to stop smoking? Once everyone is convinced that smoking is 'evil,' where will the replacement revenue stream come from?

The rich will have to pay more of their fair share, I guess.

They do tax weed. A pack of papers really doesn't cost that much.

This article explores the idea of simply letting the obese and the smokers do what they want. Some suggest that this will actually cut the cost to society be letting them die early.

Let them be?

I love this quote by a do-gooder who wants to stop smoking and obesity:
quote:

"Your freedom is likely to be someone else's harm," said Daniel Callahan, senior research scholar at a bioethics think-tank, the Hastings Center.

This brilliant person must really know what's best for all of us. Let's all surrender our freedom to people like him and make the world safe.
