Level the Playing Field: Tax the Beautiful

jenna_goldschmidt-300×300.jpgYou've heard of the "greedy hand" of gub'ment (pronounce with a Michigan Militia accent): the ruling class will tax anything. So much so that we Libertarians used to joke that soon there would be a special tax placed on the beautiful and the smart, since they have an unfair advantage over the slovenly and the stupid.
