Dedication

This website is devoutly dedicated to all of Larry's friends and associates, both early and late, who have influenced and mentored him. However, it also should be noted that, being who they are, a majority of them have been late most of the time.

What are They Smoking?

What is the West Virginia legislative leadership smoking to be considering a tobacco tax increase of one dollar per pack?

 The only way that I would consider supporting a tobacco tax increase would be if those revenues were used to decrease the grocery, gasoline, or home heating fuel taxes.

 Otherwise, aren't we taxed enough already?

  1. Politicians do desperate things in desperate times, with little common sense, except for you, Larry! This proposition is reactionary and unnecessary. How about taxing beer? Or Cuts must be made (like to union bennies?) but taxes MUST NOT increase.
