Enjoy it while you can, Massachusetts. We'll be getting rid of MANY of out dysfunctional State Legislators in November and then we'll begin to right the Ship Of State that is New York.
Meanwhile, why don't you do yourselves a favor and QUIT SMOKING!!

People need to get a grip on life and taxes. Why do you think our ancestors fought the British to get releif from taxation. There will be a revolution again, maybe not in my time.
People need to stand up for their rights, put all the do getters on an island somewhere to be in control of each other.
One needs to control their own life, stop worrying about everyone else.

We fought the British because of "taxation without representation". The difference here is that you ARE represented. The public needs to start being so apathetic can the polls and vote out these bums and get folks in that really represent our values and desires.

If you live more than ten miles from the state line you're better off sucking it up and buying from your local store.

Unless your time means nothing to you and you have gas to burn, that is.

Smokers should ask a friend in Virginia to mail cigarettes from there.

The nicest thing we can expect from this board is disruption on communication, because when necessary, the thing will close down a thread.

Let's see if that that gets through the censor.
