Sounds Like Just Another Government Tax To Me….

Looks like everybody wants to get into the act…the “taxing you” racket, that is!

Now, merchants selling Armed Forces branded merchandise must obtain a license to do so and pay royalties to the military.

Sounds like just another tax to me.

We have already seen now that merchants will just hike up their prices to their customers/consumers to recover the additional cost of doing business.

Where will it end? Or will it end?

Reminds me of the tax collector in the old Popeye comic strip who roved around town imposing an impromptu tax on whomever, whatever people were doing at the time.

    Now that much time has passed since this flap began (months, a coupla years, maybe)…I still see it as just another gd tax!!!!!

    The merchants, however, have taken it cheerfully in their stride from the beginning, passing the “tax” on to their “customers” (for lack of a more proper name).

    As Kruschev said long ago, all merchants are thieves…words to that effect….

    I notice that some of these merchants now proudly announce, in addition to their being “Marine-owned”.. they add that they are now “officially licensed” by…

    What? Again, the Stockholm Syndrome at work…

    Btw, see Loyalty Down…(as explained by… Chesty Puller)…
