#1 Silly Rabbit, for the Socialist Progressives there is no private property. You are, at best, merely part time stewards of the State's lands and resources (which also includes your body).

#2 What about Rain.

#3 EPA regulated.

#4 What about Rain. I don't know about your property tax bill, but I have to pay a "water run-off control" tax, which amounts to a Rain Tax. So yes, the EPA has already taxed rain.

#5 IIUC I think rain may be an IRS deal, or rather taxing a person when not having rain or having a substandard unapproved rain. Those of you who get too much rain will be taxed to make up for those who get too little rain, whether they need rain or not.

I'd get into snowfall, and the difference between rain, sleet, and snow, but that is 800 pages and I have not read it yet. And because it deals with rain, sleet, or snow, there will be a $5 surcharge every month to pay the USPS to deliver Obamaphones to those with less than optimal informationally unemployed, with an immediate $40 tax on everyone who does not currently own a xbox1 so that our chronically depressed PS4 enrollment participants can activate their accounts.

Now get back to plowing that tax field; not working hard for other peoples' free shit is racist, and you should know your betters.

#6 That was brilliant, swksvolFF. One suspects you've spent a little too much time dealing with such things.

#7 We have all spent a little too much time dealing with such things.

After all they regulate the amount of water your toilet is allowed to use per flush. When you reach that level you're pretty much fu*ked already.

#8 Absolutely right, CF. In Kalifornia they give you a rebate if you buy a low flow toilet. They discourage you from buying anything else. Then you have to flush twice to get the job done and use even more water. The guy at HomeDepot told me about a five gallon toilet. I told him I wanted it but he said it's illegal in the state of Kalifornia.

But, hey, wait until they start taxing the air you breath.

#9 If we were all vegans we would not need to flush twice. But that part of the executive order will come later.

They are on it. The EPA was going to tax the amount of dirt blow-off from farming, requiring 24 hour surveillance most likely in the way of drones. Of course, we know how trustworthy the government has been recently, especially in the IRS and NSA, so the little town in Colorado selling HIP tags for drones, other than being funny, is not too funny.

Not just for clodhoppers: remember the push to put EPA HVAC regulators in your home to monitor your AC and heat usage? That's air you breath. Carbon credits, that's air you breath. Additional taxes on high efficiency and electric vehicles is a tax on not polluting: air you breath. Hell I'm being Roberts taxed for babies not yet aborted. FTS.

#12 GDI, they can take the entire tax earning of my family's lifetime and they blow it on gasoline and security for a fund raising trip to effn Florida, where I presume the weather is still nice enough to golf at this time of year.

And what really gets my shit kickers dusted off. Pumpkin tartlettes or wtf? Are you kidding me, sounds awful. I see better menus on Restaurant Impossible before the fix. The financial security of my family's health and education blown of bullshit which wouldn't sell at the impulse tray next to the checkout register at 75% off to a three day hungry homeless bloke? Kobe hot dogs, that's like surviving the buying of some Nike Air Force Ones to wear them to your rooter job the very next morning.

#13 Everybody in the EPA should be tested for drugs every week.

#14 When you think about it, regulating H2O isn't any crazier than regulating CO2.
Posted by Iblis 2013-11-14 21:22||   2013-11-14 21:22|| Front Page Top

#15 Actually, H2O (vapor) contributes more to global warming than CO2 does. CO2 is about 0.03% of the atmosphere. Water vapor is 0.25% - almost nine times as much.
