I think it is Ironic they tax the snot out of tobacco to pay for kids health care, now CVS has stopped selling and is going to punish people who use any other pharmacy that hasn't jumped on the PC band wagon.

Saw the commercial yesterday while at the gym, ironic that "oh its for your health" when they have a large line of CVS brand fatassedness in bags.

OTC and Rx drugs keep 10000x as many people alive as they kill. How many tobacco products keep people alive?
(old post I know) I know of one tobacco product that saves lives every year- long cut wintergreen Redseal. It saved my supervisors life last week... no bullshit. I had planned to peel his face off with my hands, wad it up into a ball, and stuff it into his mouth in a manner that would have him asphyxiate on it slowly. Instead, with trembling hands, I grabbed a pinch and gathered my wits... and decided it wasn't worth the prison time all while being bathed in the warm opiate-like happiness of flavored nicotine.

If we as a country are going to spank people into healthy choices "for the kids" via penalty taxes then fuck it- lets do it right. Tax soda @ 25cents per ounce and a 150% flat tax on fast food.

:laughing: Been there many times...


As for the later, we need to remove all such items from being purchased on EBT cards as well. If they want the junk, they need to pay for it.
