On today’s show Sean and I went down a road we promised we would never go down on Bacon LIVE, politics. But this political topic was to close to bacon for comfort. The Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh is talking about the idea of a sugar tax on sugary drinks. Even fellow famous Pittsburgh bloggers are pissed about the idea.

I am not going to get in to all the deals we covered on the show but a sugar tax is a terrible idea. It would pave the way to other taxes on “unhealthy” foods like bacon. I feel that the Mayor should take a good long look at were he is spending money and make some cut backs. I will never move back to the city if they add yet another tax to the people that live, shop, and work there.

We also reviewed the last of the Burger’s Smokehouse bacon and talked about Bacon Jesus. Sean also complained about Pizza Hut ads and people on the left. Next week will be back to our normal non-political bacon fueled rants.

Burgers’ Smokehouse supplied the bacon that we reviewed on this show free of charge. This is a good thing because if we had to buy everything we reviewed on the show we would be broke. Read our disclosure policy for more information.

2 Responses to Bacon LIVE: Sugar Tax is a Bacon Tax

    So when Luke is up for re-election, vote against him. he hates smart people. (tried to tax college students) now he is going after a lifestyle CHOICE. Sure obesity is a problem, I’ll grant that. this is not the way to deminish it. It will not stop obesity, see tax on tobacco as a way to curb usage. If you want to tax something, tax something everyone uses, I say air. Since the clean air act there are fewer cases of ‘black lung’ in Pittsburgh. Since everyone who is alive breathes, tax the air. I propose .0001 cent tax for every breath you take. Sure, swimmers will pay less than others but I’m cool with that.

    Vote against Luke. Just my opinion and in no way necessarilly reflects the views of Mr. Baconpants

  2. [...] But what do I know? I’m just one of those dumb fat Pittsburghers. [...]
