I am glad you moved here, too! :D

Patterson also wants an “obesity” tax on soda, according to
another New Yorker that I know. Geez!

Atlas is shrugging coast to coast. Will the sheep accept such fleecing? That is the question. Why does government never decrease?

Did y’all read the comment section at the article? Someone cursed NY by wishing that there would be a tax on each sheet of toilet paper used!!! LOL!! No one will be able to ‘spare a square’, if you remember this old Seinfeld reference! :-)
