Really?!? You are bitching about 15 cents per $50+ tree? And it isn't even for regulating the business but for marketing for it. WTF! You folks do understand that services needed to maintain an orderly society aren't fulfilled by wish elves, right? It costs money and, unless you want to opt out of society, that money comes from you. Feel free to become Amish if you want to live in the U.S.A. without contributing to this society but STFU about freaking 15 cents, 3 thousandths of a percent max tax.
