Wow, tell us how you really feel, come on now don't hold back??

My point is if the tax starts shrinking because people stop or cut down on their smoking where is it going to come from....extra gas tax?? hotel tax?? liquor tax??? That's my point and if they target something really popular to tax you will hear more of an outcty

BTW....The new Prez is a smoker..I hardly think he is a loser or slob..and I didn't vote for him

I know he smokes and I have in fact addressed that issue in another thread:

We understood you the first time. They still should all go back to their native country.

America is their native country since they were born here. How hard is it to comprehend that?

Are you endorsing the separation of families? With the exception of cases of abuse/neglect/endangerment, children need to remain with their parents.

The parents of these children knew they had no legal right to remain in this country, and should have considered the ramifications prior to choosing to give birth on our soil. The children can return later; hopefully financially secure, and equipped with skills to benefit this country. If they are illiterate and destitute, they need not return.
