Yes rais taxes. Raise hem so more money can be wasted by the fools at the capitol. Does it matter that 90% of the cost of a pack of smokes is taxes? Does it matter that the Gubbamint does nothing to produce that same revenue? They have no cost of production, no equipment, and no obligations. But they can collect a tax so they can waste the money foolishly. Great Job!

Sure, always easy to raise taxes on minorities who no politician will dare represent. "For their own good" of course. What happened to "land of the free"? Oh yeah, they just added "and heavily taxed".

Taxing Golfers, especially those Wealthy Politicians. Give em an extra fee on T-Time. Raise taxes on golfing products. Put a fee on sporting event tickets. Vikings, Twins, Wild, Gophers, and all their products. Make people pay for a permit to walk, or bike the trails. Just Reinstate Prohibition with Alcohol and include Tobacco this time. Yuuuuuup.

Booze Wins. Yet Alcohol is just as dangerous with Drunk drivers killing themselves and other innocent people, Drunk College Students ending up dead in rivers, Liver Decease along with Esophageal Lining Tears, and last but not least just complete stupidity.
