A few years back the government started their Nazi anti smoking agenda. You could still smoke but you had to pay higher taxes than everyone else, and
you couldn't do it in your own bar, office, or restaurant.
I told everyone this was the beginning of a very bad thing. I screamed from the tops of buildings... They are coming for the smokers, will you not
stand with them? If not, they will come for you next!
No one listened, no one came...
A few years later the anti smoking Nazi's reared their ugly heads again. This time with even higher taxes and laws to keep people from smoking not
just inside, but outside of buildings and anywhere within 20 feet of a public place. I felt like this was a bad thing. Again I screamed from the
rooftops... They have come for the smokers, will you not stand with them? If not, they will come for you next!
No one listened, but this time a few came - to jump on the Nazi's bandwagon. They said it was better this way, that even outdoors people could be
poisoned by my second hand smoke. I didn't tell them that sitting in traffic, or standing at a bus stop would kill them faster than my smoke, they
didn't want to hear. They said it was better the government tax the smokers unfairly because someone needed to pay for their medical bills, and after
all it's unfair to ask the non smokers to do so.
This week the Nazi's attacked yet again. Did I scream from the rooftops? Nope... Not this time.
This time I decided I was tired of being shaken down by the government, that the high cost of smoking just wasn't worth it anymore.
Three days ago I quit smoking. Many others are going to quit too. The government depends on that revenue, the loss is going to have to be made up
somewhere. That somewhere is going to be fat people.
That's right folks, if you're 20 pounds or more over your ideal body weight, you're next!
Get used to paying that fat tax!
The governments going to need those fat tax dollars to make sure there are traffic warnings placed on TV, billboards and radio constantly reminding
your loved ones, that because of your bad choices and disgusting food habits, it cost tax payers millions each year to pay for fat people's medical
It's also going to cost a mint to place warning pictures of dead scantly clothed fat people on every box of Oreo's and bag of Dorritos warning
people of the danger of not being able to see your private parts because of the size of your belly.
We'll also need warnings demonizing fat people on every grocery store door in the US. Over 50 percent of our youth is also fat. Could it be, they
think heart attack, diabetes and certain types of cancer are cool?
The fat tax is for your own good you know, being fat can kill you...
Sound familiar? Anyone care to guess who's next???
