i seriously love your country, and had it been easy to immigrate there, we would live there. it's so lovely in denmark.
yes, i have issue with these laws, but here in NZ, it's a 15% flat tax on everything. it's the Goods and Services Tax. SO, everything has a high tax on it. I still eat everything, you know? even though it's taxed 15%. And i still buy more expensive, higher quality stuff.
but, i also have issue with any kind of "sin tax" per se -- because the fact is that it's not going to deter people and those taxes usually don't go to anything in particular.
anyway. . . what do i know?
They should tax all artificial food before attacking real food. Just sayin'.

"We have all the food groups- meat and chocolate".
My current favorite is trying to figure out the Mass. sales tax on clothing. On the surface there is no sales tax on clothes. However, I've been told that if a single item is more than $100 it will be taxed. I bought an $800 suit, no tax. Another suit, similar price, on sale - taxed. I bought a $112 pair of shoes - no tax. A $75 dollar pair of pants netted me taxation on Saturday though. How's that for consistent?
Even living in the world's capital of knee-jerk liberal nanny law idiots (California), I am outraged!
