Now back to the cigarette tax I thought that was supposed to pay for healthcare costs due to them being so bad for people?

I dont know Professional, Here in Cleveland everyone gets everything for free, because in there mind they deserve it. 300 pound women with 4 kids not a brain cell in her head driving a new Mercedes or hummer, housing ,bills all paid, 400 or more a month in free food on that food card. Grown men strong as an ox expecting ,and recieving everything free and selling drugs for extra money . Also cant forget the senseless littering and trashing of the streets and beaches here. Trash belongs on the ground ,I though you knew. Yep there living pretty good here ,the lazy life is what works in Cleveland. Unfortunatly the people who work for a living and actually do something for the country have 10 dollars maybe for food this evening because of the gas prices around 3.50 a gallon. It pays to be a worthless street slug here unfortunatly. America is not what it used to be my friend.edit on 21-2-2012 by dntwastetime because: add
It is hard to believe for people that have never been to America to understand. While you may be able to travel your whole country in one month, if an American visited a different state a year it would take "50" years for them to visit all of them.

Funny, I remember when Bush was in office and the price of gas took off.
Everyone was screaming that it was his fault because Bush was in the pockets of Big Oil. His administration, at least did some work to get the prices down.
Now, where is the screaming about Obama being in the pockets of Big Oil.
My question is why is his administration NOT doing anything about the prices?
Who is really in the pocket of big oil?
Everyone got obamas answer when he turned down the Keystone pipeline. I mean, that was a great idea of his to turn down cheap oil from Canada a pipeline that probably could've created thousands of jobs, a country that wants to sell us their oil but obama turns up his nose at it. Instead he'd rather pledge billions to brazil. And obama still has the ban on drilling here in the US.
There was a video some place, if I can find it I'll post it, where obama admitted he has no problem with Americans paying over $5.00 a gallon for gas.

I have a friend who works for Exxon. It is the government who makes the price of gas so high along with idiot speculators. They can make gas cheap but the government makes them do so much crap to the fuel for emissions that does not work, then they tax it.
This is all BS because Saudi Arabia said they would fill any shortage that Iran causes. We have a surplus in America, let alone our reserves.

Well how on earth do you think the criminals in charge are going to afford to invade iran and Syria for their zio masters?
You didn't think we poor little slave goy were completely useless to them did you?
No, no. We must do our part in this catch 22 and fund the zionazi wars that kill innocents and our children while turning them into murderers for hire even if they have been fooled into believing we actually have enemies.
Well, we do now thanks to the crooks in charge and their dual citizenships.

Everyone should stop complaining and look at this for what it is. In reality the American people are really getting fed up with the way things are, the corruption, high gas prices, high taxes, bail outs, etc. I admit it hurts and it will continue to hurt but eventually we WILL reach our breaking point and full blown revolution will take place. I only hope that when it does people will put aside their petty government instilled differences and band together to put an end to the near slave like way of life that our great and mighty government has forced upon us.
This is all part of the process that will lead up to the revolution.
