Cigarette Smokers- Get Mad Says Pete Mondello

Pete Mondello, a lobsterman and a smoker for over forty years  is mad as a hornet and he’s gonna do something about it.

The latest round of tax increases on cigarettes has him pissed off enough to quit he says.  His rationale for quitting isn’t for health reasons, it isn’t because cigarettes stink or any of the other myriad of reasons smoking is a terrible decision.

He’s outraged that the government will give money to bail out Fortune 500 companies who are doling out million dollar bonuses while upping the taxes on his guilty pleasure (cigarettes).  He doesn’t want a single dollar of his money to go to the greedy bastards, he’s hopping mad and it’s enough to get him to stop smoking.

Hey I’m not quite sure if the logic is all that perfect but if it gets any other smokers out there to quit I’m all for it.
