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.

    THat’s the Pete I know. Smoking is not his only
    guilty pleasure. I’ll have to stop down to say hi to him.

  2. Give them the other one for me Pete!

  3. Nathan says:

    you go uncle pete!

  4. Lobsterlady says:

    Hey, What about me. Pete’s only got 2 hands. Oh, I know, I’ll have to do it myself. Actually I’ll wait and give the NMFS a double hit.

  5. Sally says:

    I don’t who you are Pete but I feel the exact same way. Actually the cigarette tax is going to socialized medicine, not bank bailouts. No matter how you slice it though it’s welfare!

  6. Kathleen says:

    Pete’s wife just told me her kids are now using that picture as the wallpaper on their computers. Yea, Dad!

  7. Ann says:

    If the non- smokers don’t want the 2nd hand smoke, there are plenty of places they can go
    to avoid it.

    What’s next? Beer, Soda, Salt? This ban is the will of the rich insurance companies and a government who wants ALL your money.

    Oh, Peter! You handsome devil!
    Love from Mother-in-law
