One of my favorite morning radio programs is hosted by a comedian. When he proposed the headline that leads this blog, I laughed out-loud, listened and giggled much more. Once I gained my senses, I didn’t think it was possible, but a Google search confirmed that it was not joke.
“One of Christmas’ most recognizable symbols apparently needs a PR campaign — and a new tax to pay for it. The administration has imposed a 25-cent tax on Christmas trees in order to pay for a new board tasked with promoting the Christmas tree industry.”
To be fair, the purpose of the 25 cent tax is to set up a “Christmas Tree Promotion Board”, but let’s be honest do the Christmas tree growers really need the Government doing this for them? Secondly, if the Christmas tree growers wanted a “Christmas Tree Promotion Board” why not just set one up (in America they are free to do so)? Thirdly, this is evidence that the current presidential administration just doesn’t get it. I can’t wait to vote in 2011.
