    Nice try. Try again later.

    Right-wing media figures are accusing the Obama administration of seeking to impose a tax on Christmas trees; but the Christmas tree industry has been working since 2008 -- before President Obama was elected -- to partner with the Department of Agriculture and establish a marketing campaign funded by tree growers in order to promote the sale of fresh Christmas trees.

    Far from a tax initiated by the Obama administration, the proposal to create an assessment on tree growers to fund a research and promotion program through the USDA was begun by the industry during the Bush administration.

    In February 2008, faced with declining sales, members of the National Christmas Tree Association created a task force to consider the merits of a checkoff program, which would allow the USDA to collect a fee from growers in order to fund research into marketing Christmas trees.

    Mrs.PFnVA - While I don't really care whether this was a Bush or Obama thing, the idea is absurd. So the fed is at the request of the NCTA is funding a research project into the Marketing of Christmas trees??? Hahahaha what a waste of time and allocation of government resources.

    The marketing of Christmas trees should be the same as the marketing for Viagra, Cialis, Monostat and Tampax...non-existant. Anyone who needs those goods, knows they do, and knows where to go to get them. Wasting government time and money on this is muy stupido.

    I agree....but I wasn't commenting on the validity of the program. I was merely pointing out to Harry Boy the invalidity of his statement that "Obama came up with the Christmas Tree Tax."

    It fascinates me how often Harry gets taken by the same people over and over again. I keep wondering when he'll quit believing that everything he reads is true and when he'll tire of being a shill for liars.

    Wow, this is so absurd. I was going to start a thread on this too. Why is the government involved? This is a prime example of all that is wrong with government.

    Christmas trees? The federal government is going to set up a board to promote, research, and evaluate Christmas trees. [​IMG]

    The New Loony Democrats love to call TAXES "fees" then their loony sheep won't think they're TAXES.

    Changing the wording of another member's post is against the rules....don't do it again.

    They are Christmas trees...they have always been Christmas trees and they will always be Christmas trees...

    Or what?

    You'll say 'don't do it' again?

    Take your orders and shove 'em.

    Let me assure you that, for some reason, the Mrs. knows a great deal about those drugs! Yes she has indeed demonstrated that, for some reason, she is familar with the pricing and effectiveness of those. :rocker:

    You truly do love playing with yourself, don't you, WP? Coz it's for sure, in spite of the fact that you've mentioned this several times over the course of a couple threads in several failed attempts to provoke a response, that no one else is interested in playing with you.

    Nice little touch you tried to slide in there, though, you've managed to take a remark I made about the high price of cialis and the agony of prostate trouble and turned it into a "familarity with the effectiveness" of a whole slew of drugs.

    Some people might call that stretching the truth, some people might call it an active imagination, still others might call it lying.

    Mostly people will just wonder what it has to do with Christmas trees and why you can't stay on topic and are, instead, fixated on male pharmacutical sexual aides.

    What's funny, if a bit sad, is the amount of time WP spends trolling on this forum with the full understanding that the moderators wont do a thing about it.

    Then when he manages to provoke a response, he plays the victim and cries to the moderators about how mean people here are to him.

    It kinda reminds me of the World of Warcraft episode of South Park. How do you kill that which has no life?
