They aren't going to stop production on it.
That would be foolish.
I read on the Internet that they were going to add a $10.00
Carbon Tax to every bag.

Like I just said in another thread: Only a matter of time till they tax BBQ.

This really is unreal. I went to sleep and woke up in a different country.

This can't be for real. Very few of us use much coal at all anymore. I think more people use gas or the oven. I really hope this doesn't happen

I agree this is NOBAMA rattling, could it actually be an organization like PETA people pushing that agenda? There are much worse things in this industry like starter fluid for example - do you really need starter fluid?

Pork fat grease on the face mod. Ok, you got me.

But I'm still not surprised by any outrageous taxes.
