After decades of trying, the Republicans finally gain control of the Georgia Governor’s Mansion. And it seems that all of their fiscal panaceas aren’t gonna quite pan out. So being in need of money they decided to quadruple the tobacco tax. Now it seems to me that if the state is gonna rely on sin taxes to balance the budget, they should go all out. Be gone blue laws. Let Peach Staters buy beer on Sundays. Bring on the games. How about a casino on Tybee Island? A horse track at the Agricenter in Perry? Who’s up for allowing legalized prostitution in Muscogee County? Anyone against letting coffee shops in Dalton to sell hash? Gives us sin taxes (we’ve already have our sinners repesenting us under the Gold Dome), but if sin taxes are the way to go, then the government should give it’s citizens more options to sin.
