"Sales of real Christmas trees have been declining, so growers want to create an industry promotion tool. Sort of like Pork: The Other White Meat."

except the private enterprise hasn't paid off the government to add 'boards' and employees, hold federal hearings and FORCE all tree suppliers to fork over money..

No wait.....

It's the Hayseedian taxpayers, you and me, that will be paying this!

So, you've been snookered. YOu get to pay for the advertising campaign that convinced you to buy a tree. Wow...

Just all the sellers of junk food, trinkets, jewelry can insist that the gov't 'add a tax' and funnel it back to them.

It's hilarious for those OWS types who hate 'corporate influence' on the gov't.

This was a 'buy off' job. Plus, you get to pay for more fed workers and boards and useless hearings....
