..that a guy with a 'Born Free, Taxed to Death" bumper sticker would

a) smoke cigarettes (mucho high tax / carton)
b) drive a car (high tax on gas, ad valorem tax...etc.)

Seems to me that if you really wanted to avoid paying taxes that stopping those things would be good way to start, no?

I will give him some credit though, he was driving an economy car.

I can't imagine how people spend money on cigarettes. the cost seems so prohibitive. what are they now? $3.50-$4 a pack???

my guess is that he doesn't feel like he's paying a tax when he purchases those items. it's not like he's paying for $8 of gas, then having the cashier add $4 for tax. We tend to not think of the tax when it's included in the price.

smokers are selfish little dogs.

I'm not sure what outrages me more...their 2nd hand smoke or their littering...

I did a project on 'butt' litter back in college and I told the class if that they could take 10 full steps outside our building without seeing a cigarette butt, I'd give them $5.

I didn't have to pay anyone! Mr. Green

That's not irony, that's more like slapstick comedy. Tee-hee

Quote:
It is estimated that several trillion cigarette butts are littered worldwide every year. That's billions of cigarette butts flicked, one butt at a time, on our sidewalks, beaches, nature trails, gardens, and other public places every single day. In fact, cigarette butts are the most littered item in America and the world. Cigarette butts are made of cellulose acetate tow, NOT COTTON, and they can take decades to degrade. Not only do cigarette butts ruin even the most picturesque setting, but the toxic residue in cigarette butts is damaging to the environment, and littered butts cause numerous fires every year, some of them fatal.

Wasn't it Keltic? ...lesson as I see it, don't eat yogurt!! Ya know it's just a substitute for ice cream anyway. Eat the real thing and log a few more miles..that's my motto.

I saw some buttclown discard his cigarette at a red light this morning. That ticks me off, too.

The cigarette butt fairy never arrived to pick it up either.
