Tax Guru-Ker$tetter Letter
Saturday, July 13, 2002
It never ceases to amaze me how stupid so many of our rulers are in regard to human nature. They just love to tack on new taxes and fees and are shocked that people will take steps to avoid paying them.
I've never been a smoker; but have long been amazed at how they allow themselves to be so persecuted. How can it be news to anyone that the huge extra taxes being aimed at smokers will result in smuggling from low tax states? I'm just surprised that more smokers aren't growing their own tobacco.
