Comment: Re:$1B in new tax revenue! (Score 1) 164

There are several issues here:

Where should taxation occur? This can be debated, but is not the object of the discussion.

Police brutality: it's shameful and unacceptable, but it's tangentially related, at best. Claiming that taxation caused it is absurd.

Tax evasion: he should've been prosecuted for this, no doubt there. Police reaction was shameful, as I've said, but it doesn't make him innocent.

You are arguing beside the point. Nobody said the cop reacted appropriately and it is frankly irrelevant to the discussion at hand.
tl;dr - strawman

Once you realize that Eric Garner was killed over taxes [...] Don't ban cigarettes, tax them.[...]

Non sequitur. The former is an argument against the latter.

You're clearly living in a fantasy world. You sound a bit like Dennis:
