As for the other poster claiming that most of our population is within 50 - 60 miles of a state border, that is true as well. Most would be over 50%. If you look at the major population centers and the state borders, you might find out that most in this case is significantly greater than the 50% threshold that is required to qualify as "most". But then, responding to postings factually has never been your strong suit. It is easy to see when you lose the argument, it is pretty much when you tout your "stock pick".

Number one, I never said within 50 - 60 miles. Check the thread moron.

Number two, I never said 90% would be under a 60 mile round trip, check the thread, reading comprehension impaired poster. If you can't understand what other people clearly write, you shouldn't bother to respond. You make Gilda Radner's character, Emily Litella, look like a genius.

I did say that 90% of the twin cities metro population is within 40 miles of the Wisconsin border. The center of Minneapolis is 27 miles from Hudson Wisconsin. Google it, reading comprehension challenged and remedial math failing poster.

Funny, non-brand name cigarettes can sell for less than $20 dollars a carton.
Now spin some more.....
Nice made up number. Under $20 a carton. You are a lying sack of excrement. Federal tax per pack of cigarettes is $1.01. Minnesota state tax per pack of cigarettes is $1.23 per pack. Assuming nothing charged for the cigarettes at all in Minnesota,$2.24 times 10 packs is $22.40. Adding the new $1.60 per pack tax on that means taxes per pack will be $3.84, and just the tax cost of a carton goes to $38.40.

For most posters, I could just spell out the tax amounts and they could extrapolate, but as you are an example of how math teachers are failing in our public schools, I have to do the simple multiplication for you, I know.

NY's Higher Cigarette Tax Does Little To Increase Revenue

The go-to plan for cash-strapped states—an increase in the tax on cigarettes—has some holes in it. In July, the New York State cigarette tax was increased to $4.35 a pack, which becomes $5.85 when combined with the city's own levy. However, the Post reports that revenue from cigarette sales was only $125 million last month, compared to $119 million from the same month a year before—hardly equivalent to the 58% increase in tax, and barely helpful to the $9.2 billion state budget deficit.

Convenience store owners report that cigarette sales have fallen anywhere from 25-35% since the hike, and New York State only sold 28.7 million cigarette tax stamps this July, compared to 43.1 million in July of 2009. The logic of the tax is sound—that because cigarettes are addictive, consumers will have no choice but to throw down the beans no matter the price tag. Consequently, any decrease in the number of sales after a tax is usually more than made up for by the increase in revenue. But did this tax go too far?

Governor Paterson seems to have underestimated the proximity of tax-free reservations in Western New York and Long Island as well as low-tax states such as Pennsylvania and Vermont—where compared to NY, they practically give away cancer sticks for free. Cigarette revenue has increased up to 45% in those areas. In fact, a quick glance at this map of countrywide cigarette excise tax rates indicates that a road trip to Louisiana is in order.

Iowa

Penalties

Penalties exist for purchasing cigarettes brought into Iowa from another state, by mail, or over the Internet without the Iowa cigarette stamp affixed. Only 2 packs of cigarettes can legally be brought into Iowa at a time. Penalties start at minimum $200 per purchase in addition to the cigarette and sales/use taxes due. Also, the cigarettes may be seized.

Since your dishonest, lying, weaselly, sack of excrement fingers don't seem to be able to cut and paste a whole sentence, here is what I wrote:

"Some will have an 80 mile roundtrip, most of that 90% would be under a 60 mile round trip, and many would be under 30 mile round trip."

Caught in another lie, the slewchebag returns to form and uses the lame stock pick as justification for it's inability to understand what it reads, or even do simple math.

Sadly, this is what you get from our public school systems all too often now when the parents do not take an active role in making sure their kids are getting an education.

Irony=childish nickname usage, by a moron child....

Is the 787 flying ??

When did you say the earliest they'd fly was ???

(6 months from January)

Perhaps, if you were non-stupid, instead of a non-starter. People would pay attention to you ??

Nope, blather about 6 months, on a battery rework done in February.

Yeah, I wrote rework and so did Boeing, boi.

Boeing said on Monday that the first flight test of its reworked battery system for the 787 Dreamliner went "according to plan," enabling it to move on to formal testing.

Gee, "6 months and never" moved to May ????

Number 1, I wrote up to 6 months.

Number two, your logic for defending your lies and educational shortcomings on this thread by using another thread is fallacious. Nothing you say about your stock pick or Boeing can cover up your lies and mathematical inabilities on this thread. You even reverted to form and brought up your stock pick as soon as you lost the argument in print on this thread. Very predictable, as laid out in post #21 on this very thread.

Many will do so on principal alone. They'd rather pay the extra money for gas than give it to the state. The exorbitant taxation of smokers, mostly middle and lower income people, and little of which goes towards cessation, prevention or anything useful, it a true form of socialist tyranny.

So in slewchebag, "could easily be" translates to "will be". I get it. You are operating with your own language constructs that use English words, but not how they interact with each other.

Another example of how our public education system plainly failed you. You should sue the school you went to, when the jury hears you defending your points, they clearly won't be able to side with the school.

Nice of slewpid to admit in post #14 to what rational people have been saying all along; that the poorest will be the most affected by increasing the tax on tobacco yet again. Proving once again that the DFL only cares about raising taxes on the middle and lower income folks and spending money as foolishly as they can.

Thanks slewpid. And let me beat you to the obvious response:

IMMR up 9500% in the last 30 seconds!!
