Short Account of Stuff That Happened Today. [May. 16th, 2005|05:12 pm]

[In the Moment |Smoke 'em if you got 'em.]



So, I drove my car today to complete errands.

I made my way over to a local Costco for bulk instant coffee.

They sell smokes, and I needed another carton.

I asked the lady how much their cartons of Winston Lights were.

"Uuuuuhhhh . . . $49.38, plus tax."

I said,

Nooo thank you.

On the way back, I found a discount smoke shop with a considerably cheaper rate of $43.10 for the total bill.

Smokes in MI don't go for cheap. Fuck you, Granholm.

That's the thing.

The cessation would most certainly turn me into a sack of crap for over a month.

I'm already recovering from back injury.

I desire cheaper and legal prices on my 50-year suicide plan.

Granholm, the governor of MI, has gone insane with taxation of inelastics.

Gas . . . smokes . . . alcohol . . .

Anything that can be considered a need . . . she's taxing the shit out of it.

Engler, the past governor, wasn't any better. In fact, he was probably much worse, but he didn't touch my favorite vice.

The higher prices would be fine, you know, if like minimum wage were 15 dollars an hour or some shit.

California = huge anti-smoking

I used to nab cartons for 30 bucks.

I hate this state more by the day.

And then she makes it majorly illegal to buy smokes outside of Michigan to have shipped, with the fines putting everyone out on the corner.

They're not going to attract new residents by nature of prison.

At this point, the only available option is to attract any and all business by giving them carte blanche reductions on taxes. This may invite undesireable employers who do not give back to communities, but by tightening one's grasp, little galaxies slip through the fingers.

The metal-faced villain is in partnership with Madlib on the Madvillain album.

I tend to follow MF Doom, but that doesn't mean that I do not like Madlib . . . I have yet to string together $$$ to go into album-purchasing of his efforts.

In fact, if anyone has choice music . . . I lost my large-huge hard drive collection in the Great Kerblooie of October 2004.

Months of work . . . lost in the metal casing of innards, forever doomed to not compute.
