Oregon’s Measure 50 is set to provide funding for terrorists, again ignoring federal requests to stop increasing tobacco taxes.
In 2004, the GOA formally requested that every State stop fueling the funding for Terrorists by increasing tobacco taxes.
It has, of course, fallen on the deaf ears of anti tobacco zealots (media, special interest groups and politicians) who will stop at a nothing to persecute those who use a legal product, not even the very life of a single enlisted man or woman.
If you find it interesting or compelling, then also consider following the in-depth story from which the general facts can also be applied to Oregon and Measure 50’s supporters. In 2005 Mr. Norman Kjono wrote extensively about this issue and how it pertained to the situation in Washington state, we believe it is again relevant to not only Oregon, but any state considering raising the tobacco taxes.
