    Sugary drink tax

    Last night I finished my workout at the gym, I did pull ups and those tend to give me Charley-horses, bad muscle cramps a few hours later at night. For these nights I buy Gatorade or some sport drink, they usually put a stop to the cramps. I bought some Poweraid, rather I put it in my cart, it was .89 cents, but when I got to the checkout, the total with sugar tax was $1.54 and I asked the clerk to void it, I didn't want it.

    Liberals suck.

    Holy crap. I did not realize the taxes were that much. I work in Seattle but try to avoid spending any money in the city. That just makes it more likely I will not give them my cash.

    I talk with some relatives who are leftist and love that the state has gone even more Dem in the legislature while also complaining about tax increases and costs (housing, etc). For some reason these people cannot see the disconnect.

    Fuck Seattle. Make your own soda, sell it to your neighbors. I'm only half-joking. I already make/keg my own hard cider and beer, soda is way easier, way less messy, and much quicker.
