Can Americans fix the problems of an economic recession by developing a smoking habit?

If everybody smoked a pack of cigarettes a day, small shops and the tobacco industry would have boosted profits. The tax on the cigarettes could pay off that 700 billion dollar bailout.

    You'd all also die a lot earlier, easing the long-term burden on social security. Since your healthcare is private, it's probably an economic lifesaver.

    LOL! Political satire!

    Personally, I'd rather deal with the health problems of consuming chocolate cake with fudge frosting each day. And they could start taxing chocolate, I guess (-:.

    No, no, I'm wrong; your idea is better.

    Imagine: chocolate tax. What a travesty!
