New Mexico wants to tax video games to make kids less giant


If there’s one thing we’ve learned over and over again, it’s that you can’t tax people into changing their ways. They’ll still buy cigarettes, gas, and booze, but instead of buying less, they’ll just curse the government and vote for Ron Paul.

Yes, this is going to end well. No word if Dance Dance, Revolution is exempt.
