I saw in a local paper that there is a bill in NJ now - I don't know if it passed - to tax tickets and rides in amusement parks in order to fund admissions for the "disadvantaged". Can't wait to see how they're going to construct a whole bureaucracy around this one!

i think giving to others is a good thing but its something one must do voluntarily

I didn't know that going to amusement parks was a necessity of life. Nor did I know it was a guaranteed right. As far as I know the Constitution doesn't say anything about the guarantee of going to amusement parks. It does say that people have the right to the PURSUIT of happiness, but it does not say anything about guaranteed happiness.

BTW - I agree with you, I've given to organizations that support outings for inner city poor children. But to be taxed so they can go to a frigging amusement park - all I can say is ONLY in New Jersey (or crazy California). :roll:
