More Government Ridiculousness: A Christmas Tree Tax!

Yep. That's right. President Obama’s Agriculture Department today announced that it will impose a new 15-cent tax on all fresh Christmas trees to support a new Federal program to improve the image and marketing of Christmas trees.

Honestly, this sounds like something Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert would make up to parody the White House. How, exactly, will this help anyone? What is currently wrong with the image or marketing of Christmas trees, anyway?


  1. It is imperative that all the resources of this great government be immediately put to work to fix our most pressing problems. I applaud President Obama for getting his priorities RIGHT. Nothing will help our citizens more than improving the IMAGE of Christmas trees. Thank you Mr. President you have my vote for 2012 - assuming you are still on the ballot.

  2. Even IF xmas trees had a bad image how is it any of the federal governments business to try to improve upon it????????????????
