    Do you enjoy the occasional fine cigar?

    My husband likes the occasional fine cigar and I love the smell. I have been known to indulge a couple of times a year.

    Well, hang onto your socks for this one. It has been purposed that a increase from 5 cents to 10 dollars for federal tax for each cigar.

    I believe our law makers need a huge for this one.

    My opinion on what Congress needs to be told everytime they want to further oppress us:
    "[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons.
    They are left in full possession of them."

    All they will succeed in doing is creating a brand new Black Market.

    I'd like to propose a LIE tax for politicians.

    Every time they get caught telling a lie to the American people - they have to pay One Hundred Thousand Dollars into a fund to help kids.

    I tend to think this dimwitted tax is about punishing us conservatives, because we smoke more cigars than Libs do.

    Who are the two most popular cigar smokers in America? Rush Limbaugh and Arnold Scharzenegger...both republicans.

    In my home state (WA) the tobacco tax is 129%. I don't think I'd notice the extra federal tax.

    I think all these extra stupid laws are because they took morality and God out of schools, and now the only way to keep people from doing whats morally wrong is to make a law.... The whole freedom thing went out the window in the 60s and 70s.

    What kinds of cigars do you all like? My favorite ever was a big Cuban Partagas that I got from a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy....

    Speaking of which, its not so much that there will be a "new" black market, just the old one will see more customers!

    I like Cohiba's, MonteCristo's, Romeo y Juliets, whatever my cigar friend feeds me.
    To those that paid for my freedom,
    I WILL NEVER FORGET.

    As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.

    While I don't smoke cigars very often, I am a fan of the Padron 1964 Anniversary series. Specifically the Pyramide Maduro with a glass of Blanton's bourbon. The Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur #1 is nice too.

    Here is one thing that bothers me. IF this is being done to modifiy behavior...what will they do next?
    I have heard far left types say, "Keep your guns...we will just tax the heck out of your ammo."
    This is why I don't care WHO the Republicans run...I don't want a liberal in there.

    He did not know how to properly use it though. Or are you referring to Hitlery?
