Enforced Resolutions

Choices for my New Year's resolutions have been made for me.
Thanks to the Governor's proposed budget, I will be giving up soda, beer and wine.
Soda will be taxed at 18 percent. Only non-diet sodas, though.
And I thought prices were high at McDonald's now.
Beer and wine tax will double.
Oh, but I can buy more Quick Draw lottery tickets at the gas station that will be increasing their gas tax.
So thanks, guv, I guess I know what I'll be giving up.
No more drinking and driving for me - at the same time, or apart.

I think it's so funny that Diet Soda is OK. It's ten times worse for you than the normal soda... but since it's "diet" they make it seem OK. UGH! How about promoting locally grown or green? OK. Don't get me started.
