Wow, debby ... that post sure went over your head.
Put your psychobabble aside and go back and see what the real message is.
Not that your IQ allows this.
(Hint ... it ain't about smokers health issues or the cost)
On February 4, 2009, the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 was signed into law, which raised the federal tax rate for cigarettes on April 1, 2009 from $0.39 per pack to $1.01 per pack. The increase was to help cover the cost of increased coverage under the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).
On April 1, 2009, the largest federal cigarette excise tax increase in history went into effect, bringing the combined federal and average state excise tax for cigarettes to $2.21 per pack and achieving the Healthy People 2010 (HP2010) objective (27-21a) to increase the combined federal and average state cigarette excise tax to at least $2 per pack (1). This report summarizes changes in the federal excise tax, as well as state excise taxes for all 50 states and the District of Columbia (DC) from December 31, 1995 to April 1, 2009.* The findings indicate that the federal excise tax increased from 24 cents per pack in 1995 to $1.01 per pack in 2009, and the average state excise tax increased from 32.7 cents per pack to $1.20 per pack during the same period.† These increases represent a 321% increase in the federal excise tax and a 267% increase in the average state excise tax since 1995.
"He was a rapper trying to stop violence in Baltimore. Tyriece Travon Watson, better known as Lor Scoota, had just finished hosting a charity basketball game. The fliers advertising the event had said, “Pray for peace in these streets.” Music artists and important faces from around the city had come together to prove they could get along.
Lor Scoota got in his car and left the arena. Bringing peace to Baltimore was a message he had been trying to spread — on panels, in classrooms and in his music.
“How I’m supposed to live with all this death in my sight?” the 23-year-old had once sang.
Lor Scoota was about a mile away from the arena when he was shot and killed.
Baltimore police said the rapper was driving east at 6:56 p.m. Saturday when an unknown black male wearing a white bandanna stepped into the street and opened fire into Lor Scoota’s car. He was transported to an area hospital, but was pronounced dead shortly after. Homicide detectives are investigating the shooting as a targeted attack".
I don't know if that's an issue. The fall of the Euro is effecting everyone. While this drop might appear threatening, the likely hood of MO losing position due to the PPS dip that determines ownership percentage is remote. Everyone else is experiencing the same dip.
Yep,you're right.... little known.
When do suppose it will actually produce something?
just wondering ...
You sure are a neat person ...

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THAT LOON HAS LEFT NO STONE UNTURNED AND THERE ARE FAR MANY MORE GOVERNMENTS AND WALL STREET ELITES WAITING FOR THEIR PAYDAY.
Ha ha ha... loons are so righteous ... eh?
Screw the whales ... save the USA.
"Yikes drooler, looks like al struck a nerve."
al ... is my puppet and so are you.
al, couldn't strike a match without instructions from MSNBC.
Come to think of it ... neither could you.
"Maybe Pretentiodouche can "refresh" his post by deleting his self-humiliation."
Sorry for your failed wishful thinking.
What else is new?
Meanwhile, Germany's firearms death rate it 1.01 per 100,000 people.
The U.S. rate is more than TEN TIMES higher -- 10.54.
Total liberal bunk. Come back after you go to Germany and buy a gun through legal channels.
Then tell me what happened when you are caught with a concealed one. lol.
You loons do nothing but parrot liberal loon media without checking one cow chip of accurate information.
1.01 to 10.54 ... lol. You didn't check piddy diddley, and you have no clue why these numbers are phony.
"We learn this morning that Pretentiodouche likes to make up "mass shootings" at an event where the gunman shot exactly ...zero people."
Well ... ya got me. I was certainly an idiot to believe my liberal dominated home page (MSN) by Reuters. could deliver a report like this absent rumor and unconfirmed so called facts.
I sincerely apologize for my loon moment of parroting the liberal media that I certainly should have know couldn't get anything right.
Next time I'll await for the Fox News report.
My apologies ... Pretentiodouche.
We learn this morning that a mass shooting in a movie theater in Germany is is process by a masked gunman.
Germany has the toughest guns laws on Earth.
Why are liberals so stupid?
