LOL! YET ANOTHER LIBERAL FAIL!!!!!!!!!! The effects of Seattle’s soda tax are finally being realized — and business leaders are furious
Seattle should call this Operation Taxed and Furious.

Basically, the tax is forcing people to go OUTSIDE city limits and spend their money elsewhere...






[link to www.theblaze.com (secure)]



Thanks to the 1.75 cents per ounce tax, a 36-pack of soda at a Seattle Costco rose in price by 75 percent, while a 35-pack of gatorade raised by similar levels. While city leaders say the tax will benefit the city, business leaders and representatives say the tax will do nothing but hurt Seattle businesses, their employees and, in the long-term, the city itself.

Re: LOL! YET ANOTHER LIBERAL FAIL!!!!!!!!!! The effects of Seattle’s soda tax are finally being realized — and business leaders are furious
When O'nagger put taxes on tobacco I quit. I used the Barrack Obama quit smoking plan to quit smoking. The plan consists of getting laid off as a white man and only having enough money to feed Your family or buy cigs. In away that piece of shit did Me a favor because I tried for years to quit but always went back. So I would imagine with liberals raising taxes on soda will just cause people to drink more water. The best part is the idiots in the city government will already have the tax money spent and then it will come back to bite them in the ass because no one is drinking soda.

Double taxation?

Seattle has done it with gasoline (green energy/save Giah earth) and guns & ammo, (to reduce crime they said) and a coffee tax if it's put into a disposable paper cup.
All this does is drive out business. Besides, none of Seattle's city government people even live within city limits, so it doesn't affect them personally.

I still haven't figured out which of the libs believe that these sin taxes will help people make the "right choices" and which ones are just trying to turn their city into a heap of rubble. Obviously, some of the so-called leaders of these places know that they are destroying them.

My best bet is that they are trying to drive away business and citizens to replace the population without obvious ethnic cleansing, then replace it with their new immigrants and declare independence, like Kosovo.

Until proven otherwise, this is the best and most logical conclusion for both Seattle and parts of California. They don't have to take the whole country, just small areas, like they're doing in Sweden with the no-go zones now.

Very clever, actually. Keeps people just off balance enough to undermine and destroy them.

Maybe God told Seattle city officials to do it, after He saw what the stupid people are doing to their bodies with all that high fructose corn syrup, and what it costs all of us eventually in higher shared medical expenses. But even God can't get through to really stupid people, it seems.

These are the same types of libtards that think homes with legal firearms inside should have a sign posted on the front lawn stating as such to the public.

Guess which houses the criminals decided to break in to?

A thought to avoid the sales tax as a small business.

To tax something, you tax it at a percent.

What if the sodas were free with the order of pizza (or whatever your business sales).

A tax of 75% on $0.00 = $0.00

Happy costumers and your sticking it to the man.
