From Left Field on the Tanning Tax
OK, I was just thinking...
1) Is the tanning tax a hate crime? I mean, tanning salons are mostly frequented by white people, right? Can one of our delightful, fake-baked inmates of our prison schools sue the Leader on this ground? What would happen if the previous administration targeted a tax on hair relaxer products? Would Al Sharpton march on Washington?
2) Trying to avoid schadenfreude, I have a feeling that most of the taxed tanners supported the Leader in the last election. Just a guess, but hey, I think it's a good one.
