#1 How about we just shoot your stupid ass instead and call it an "offset"?

#2 W/r/t globalwarmomania: Freshman Logic is all the rage! What a bunch of moonbattery.

Carrying out this insane logic. If the child dies at, say an early age, like an infant, to the parents get a refund, or at least a credit on their income tax? Have you thought this and a dozen more issues out yet, Bunkie?

#3 If we had a good government like the Chicoms we could add even more restrictions.

#4 Betcha he wasn't planning to apply it uniformally to all families on the planet. Just the ones who could afford the $5000, which means 'tax' is the operative word, not 'baby.'

#5 Seems to me a tax on stupidity would generate more revenue.

And I'm betting that the tax would only apply to certain 'oppressive' ethnic groups or certain nations (all 1st world).

#6 When these moonbats start 'Jonestowning' their own asses, I'll start to pay attention [for a moment or two].

#7 How about a "useless pseudo-intellectual turd" tax? Charge it on completion of every non-science or engineering PhD and non-MBA masters degree, and add a yearly surcharge for academic employment above the secondary level. Triple it for "sabbaticals".

Throw in a four-fold surcharge on patchouli and Birkenstock sales while you're at it.

#8 You just take the $5000 that Hillary's giving to every child and use that to pay the baby tax.

Oh, nope, Hillary's money goes into a trust account and the tax is due now. Lessee, lemme think....

#9 I knew money for the nuts was at the root of this "global warmimg" scam.
