It would help if Americans were not so disapproving of each other.
Everyone jumps on this bandwagon or that, all in the name of health.
IE Smoking. Now Cigarettes are already like 4.00+ a pack in Georgia, and people recently were polled and about 80% were ok with raising that tax
ANOTHER dollar. So now, if you're poor, you can forget about smoking IF you want to. I don't smoke, but I've family members that do, and they
can't seem to quit, and 120.00 a month HURTS their families. It opened my eyes, and I found out that all that tax money is NOT going for smoker's
healthcare. lol It's being used for playgrounds and govt. pet projects, ect.
Now they are starting down the food path, and people are acting - to me - like they are being LED into this mindset that taxing fat people will HELP
them. But there maybe too many fat people for that to fly, I dunno, a lot depends on how bad they can erode the self esteem of the overweight.
It's a slippery slope - let's tax everyone BUT ME! Look, I'm healthy. I live a lifestyle that is exactly what experts say I should live. So
don't tax ME - tax THEM!
