Dear Idiot Elected Officials…

Dear Idiot Elected Officials, Yes, keep raising taxes on tobacco… keep raising them until you get your way and no one will be able to afford to smoke any longer. And when no one buys tobacco products any longer, your government will not be able to collect the billions of dollars it generates in tax monies [...]
