Want to just give up? Give up your cigars. Give up not being monitored. Give up your guns. Give up your pot. Give up your freedom. Just give it all up because it's not going to get better and fighting will just lead to heartbreak and disappointment.
The Ashton Estate Sun Grown is already a $20 cigar, I can't imagine paying $30 for a single cigar. That article says Bush is going to veto it, but it's shit like this that's going to make me keep voting republican, it seems like the democrats put these dumb bills together JUST to have bush veto them so that the headline reads "Bush vetoes Children's Health". On the flipside is what I can expect to happen if Hillary or Obama win in 08 and the dems control Congress AND hold the veto power...
I haven't been able to find information that wasn't based on the original St. Petersberg Times article. However, it doesn't appear that they are proposing a $10 per cigar tax. Currently, there is a $.05 per cigar tax. It appears that they are proposing a tax that is a percentage of the wholesale cost of the cigar with a maximum limit of $10.
I don't know what that percentage is. It could be that the percentage does cause the average tax to be close to $10. However, it's more likely that the tax will be more in the $1 range for typical cigars.
Do I want to pay an extra dollar for each cigar that I buy? No. But my $7 cigars aren't suddenly going to become $17 cigars.
what amazes me is how little stupid shit , kind of like this, gets tacked onto some major bills. Then all of a sudden, we the taxpayers are not allowed to jerk off on a Tuesday, with our left hand , while facing the sun. F-ing BS.
My downstairs neighbor was a Cuban "person seeking refuge" He got cigars from family, and the good ones. I Tried smoking one when it was cool for women to do so, but didn;t like it. My friends love them though.
Not really a big deal for Ronnie... I mean he does have 2 radio shows ya know....the mediocre Ron & Fez show and the newly acclaimed smash hit Unmasked ...I'm sure he will be more than able to plop down a few bills for a nice cigar
