  •  the other day i was downwind of someone... (0+ / 0-)

    ... who was wearing something that nearly made me throw up.

    Good God!, how they can call that stuff "perfume" is beyond me, it ought to be called "chemical weaponry."

    So yeah, I want "perfume" taxed at 500% just like cigarettes, and I want to see a government-appointed Bureau of Olfactory Aesthetics deciding which ones to impose the huge tax on, so I don't have to smell the damn stuff in public.  

    And I don't care if we lose another 5% of the voters, I'd rather have Republicans in control of all three branches of government, than have to smell something nasty on the street!  In fact Republicans would be downright welcome if they would just get on the bandwagon about banning cigarettes, refried beans, pinto beans in general, stinky perfumes, and people who refuse to wear deodorants and antiperspirants regardless of whatever chemicals are in 'em.

    Really now!   If we're going to have a world with 9 billion people in it, we can't just allow people to smell however they want to smell, we have to start compromising so we only smell the way others want us to smell.  Freedom to smell however you like is a thing of the past!
