Here's another idea for a tax: how about a 10% national sales tax on any videogame or computergame that's player(s)' playing status can't be saved in forty-five consecutive minutes or less of playing said videogame or computergame because prolonged playing of such games can be bad for eyes of said player(s).

Forgive me, I don't use video-games so none of that makes any sense.  Don't video games rot the brain?

Basically any videogame or computer game, that's playing data can't be saved in 45 minutes or less, gets 10% national sales tax on it because prolonged playing of videogames can be bad for player(s)' eyes.  Some videogames and some computer games can rot brains depending on what visual displays those brains get from optic nerves.  Usually, if it's an educational game like Aerobiz, most likely brains won't be rotted, but if it's an extremely violent game like Grand Theft Auto, then yes, there's most likely some parts of brains can be rotted.  You might check with the Department of Health and Human Services or the Federal Trade Commission for their reviews of electronic visual and audio games.

Again, Don_G, I'm not Oppo. 

And a follow up to my comment about socialism on page 14, when working persons are paid socialism wages, they might get jealous of one another and kill each other to get more work to do or to get rid of persons that work better.

I believe you are but it really doesn't matter. If and when you have something sensible to say then I may pay attention to you. So far you haven't but I don't rule it out completely. 

This post of yours distinctly smells like Oppo.

In a very convoluted way, she was talking about taxes like having taxes on sugar and other things bad for us for government to perform social engineering.

Yeah, politicians have certainly shown their high moral personal standards that we should empower them to make more choices for us over our own lives

And a sin tax on thin (not lean) dolls because some girls and some women model their bodies like thin dolls, and that can lead to anorexia or bulimia.

You broke your promise and started paying attention before he started making sense.
