With the Oklahoma state capital still pushing on the cigarette tax, I have
to note the point of cigarettes costing more to people that make the same pay
with out much wage growth. Noted by the amount of minimum wage retirees
in in most small towns. Never made money to put in for retirement
lives on a $5.35 an hour type retirement. Very common!
There is too much stress on the poor less food hard times paying bills etc.

Training her brain to be psychotic! So as the wife goes psychotic the smoker smokes.
The brain is trained to smoke!

Poverty tax the many poor out there smokes and they are the ones
that can't afford a tax. It would be a better point to tax high dollar
things that are a better revenue source. Tax Chardonnay wine!!!
