    As state governments become starved for cash they surely will push many incidental taxes rather than shrink departments and services offered. I expect SIN TAX to be proffered for beer, wine, booze, tobacco, hunting and fishing license cost increases, camping fees....... you get the idea. So, I offer we define the sins to tax! Take your best shot ;)

    Casting a vote based on media influence = $2500.00 + death by firing squad

    Tax the entirety of the education system.
    Oh wait, books are already more expensive than they have ever been.
    Awesome... I feel like I puke up the cool-aid just to drink it again.

    They already do - it's called you CONSUME more of it!

    If I want to pay less, I'll go buy a more effecient vehicle. I like horsepower though.

    + they're talking about GPS monitoring device to determine how much mileage you get... Big Brother is watching (are you his friend???) :paranoid:

    Hybrid Tax - for having lead-acid batteries that destroy the environment and give a false sense of doing the right thing

    NWMoss, you are using logic and truth to make your point. That's just NOT FAIR! ;)

    Not to mention the increased costs for hazmat cleanup and rescue when they are involved in spontaneous vehicular connection and dismantlement.

    Actually... to be "fair" (and isn't that what it is all about REALLY) all the hybrids should be paying triple to quadruple the fuel tax that "normal" vehicles pay due to the fact that they use far less of it per mile. :D

    How about an Idiot Tax?

    Uh....maybe that would not be a good idea, considering some of the decisions I've made in my life. :laugh:

    LOTS because it's considered an "unnecessary recreational activity".
