Pot of money

May 15, 2009 

Well, now we have higher taxes on cigarettes so that more smokers will stop smoking. I'm wondering what we will do for money when all smokers quit and the source of that tax money vanishes!

Maybe our legislators should consider a tax on toilet paper, as everyone uses it, and I doubt many will stop.
