Many agree with "sin taxes" like those on cigarettes and alcohol. These are considered unnecessary for survival and can be harmful. Well, I'm in favor of expanding the list some: tattoos , video games, pornography and rap music. There may be more, but of what value are these ?

Whether you smoke, drink, use drugs or whatever would be no ones business but their owns as long as they did them in their own homes or in private elsewhere except that the federal government has far exceeded it's authority. Part of the problem is forcing hospitals to treat people who cannot afford it. By doing that they then claim the right to tell people how to live. None of that is the federal government's business. The tenth amendment forbids the feds from doing anything not specifically empowered by the constitution. They've ignored that for at least the last 100 years.

Sorry for poor wording. "Whether you smoke" should read "Whether someone smokes etc."

In the name of shared sacrifice, it’s time to impose a tax on the $7 billion in box office receipts that Hollywood generates.
