Part of the Furniture Now

This is all a big conspiracy by Big Pipe Tobacco to get us to panic and buy way more than we'll ever need. ?
I'm no genius, but I am not so sure that this is a great idea. I love this forum and respect the hell out of all of you guys, but we aren't the most civil people in the world, ha ha. And, we definitely are not the most upstanding citizens. But yeh, everyone should send that letter to their reps.Try and get them to actually go on this forum and see what sort of people we are, how pipe smoking fits into our lives and brings us together.
No need to feel chastised at all. It wasn't a bad suggestion. I just have a different opinion or perspective. And, I am merely one voice on here. Besides, I love birddogs!! I have a sassy little Brittney at home.Just shows what I know, I’ll keep schtum from here on out ??
I am not privy to the language of the bill. But, whole leaf has had a loophole that I assume will remain. I... I won't say all that I think here. But, I hope it remains.I have some whole leaf on the way with the intention of making my own blends, will this tax hike effect the prices of that too? If that’s the case I need to start stocking up.
Not a terrible idea... as long as you trust the members of the tontine. There is no way I would enter one with just random people from a forum though. We've lost box passes to members we thought that we could trust on here, so... YMMV.We need to get a tobacco cellar tontine going.
The warning is one of the most public cases of pushback from the tobacco industry as it finds itself once more being targeted by Congress. For years, lawmakers have scrutinized the industry over its marketing that targets young adults and children. Numerous state and federal legislative initiatives have been launched to clamp down on tobacco, including by taxing its products, as Democrats have proposed to do as part of Biden’s social spending bill.
I don't want to admit it, but you're probably right.This might sound horrible and selfish, but I hope this bill passes so I can end my TAD disease and stop buying more tobacco that I'll never get to smoke. I bet others are in the same mindset as me, weather they want to admit it or not.
I really wonder about the online businesses that probably rely quite heavily on pipesmokers' TAD, especially snatching up the "limited edition" tins that have been flooding the market these last couple years. And the B&M's are probably more doomed.I don't want to admit it, but you're probably right.
Anyone have any ideas on how this might affect trades/private sales? Do you think the prices will be adjusted based on market rates?
