SHOW-ME THE TAX FIGHT OVER SMOKES!!!
While debating racial b.s. and other prejudices . . . Missouri voters will consider a question about a cash crop . . . Take a look at The Star's editorial obviously bleeding over into news coverage . . . Just like a blog:
Missouri to vote on raising nation's lowest tobacco tax
For a bit of perspective from the other side that most media outlets are sacrificing at the altar of political correctness . . .
The Missouri Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store (MPCA) Association is on the offense — last week, the group launched a billboard campaign to motivate residents to vote no on Proposition B, which would raise the state’s tobacco tax by 760%
On this one . . . It's hard to decide if I dislike cancer more or less than higher taxes while weighing the fact that cheap smokes make it easier to spot skanks.
Knowledge is power and voting is difficult for the few dozen people in Kansas City who still partake in the dirty habit.
