A tax on $5 coffee drinks? Why, that’s… communism!

According to an article in the Christian Science Monitor, a Seattle proposal to fund better education with a 10¢ tax on frou-frou coffee drinks is raising overcaffeinated ire.

Regular brewed coffee and tea aren’t subject to the tax — only the lattes, doppiatos, half double decaffeinated half-caf with a twist of lemon, etc.

“It should be the other way around,” snaps Ms. Lippmann [‘a yoga teacher with a measured Buddhist comportment on most issues’], who drinks a double short breve daily. “People should be penalized for drinking bad coffee, not espresso.”

Grr! That Lucky Ducky — he ALWAYS comes out ahead!!
