  • LOL!

    And honestly, if he put a 30% tax on ice cream I would be okay with it. My $4.00 Cold Stone ice cream would cost $5.20 instead but really...$4 or $5.20...I am still paying a large amount FOR the ice cream sso the $1.20 isn't THAT big of a stretch for me. Of course, I could always order the slightly smaller ice cream which is $3.50 and pay $4.55 and then I am just paying 50 cents more and not over indulging.

  • Did they specify which flavor they were going to tax???? Because I don't give a flying duck if they tax whatever they want and how much, but if they tax cookie dough, I am starting my own production in the basement.

  • The gov. here in NY taxed soda and water so what would be the difference.I would probably do like my grandparents did during the great depression buy an ice cream maker and make our own.

  • LOL. Aren't people always bitching about rampant obesity? Maybe this would slow some people down.
