The Soviet Socialist Republic of New Jersey

Posted by redsatellite on May 1, 2008

Not to be confused with the Soviet Socialist Republic of Santa Monica (a well known Marxist community). New Jersey, that ridiculous state that is home to my uncle, is working on their own version of a ‘sin’ tax. Yah….hold on to your soft taco, here comes a fast food tax.

The sputtering economy has caused an increase in prices of many staples including gasoline, rice, ice cream, even beer. Now some lawmakers in New Jersey are considering taking food taxes a step further and install a proverbial “sin” tax on fast food.

Yes, the idea of marking up your favorite fast food burger or pack of fries is actually being tossed around, and it’s not settling well with many residents. “They’re taxing everything. Now you’re gonna tax fast food? That’s crazy,” said Newark resident Miriam Robertson.

Well, you poor schlub, welcome to New Jersey.

“I think this country has gone too much in the direction of fast and unhealthy food, and if people are taxed they may terminate that and turn toward more healthy foods,” said West Orange resident Maureen Felix.

Ahhhh….the typical liberal mindset. Tax ’em ’til they CHANGE THEIR BEHAVIOR. Don’t forget- Los Angeles could introduce a Global Warming tax. C’mon…you Philistines- start thinking like a liberal for goodness sake! Having lived amongst them for 22 long and PAINFUL years, I believe I can offer some insight. Basically- ideally- liberals would love everyone to be vegan, secular, anti-military, and anti-American.

In their perfect world, it would be more difficult to: buy beef, buy a gun, buy a Bible, or purchase an American flag. Uh no- I’m not kidding. (FYI….burgers, fall under fast food.)
