EPA proposal stinks

More indications that Green is the new Red .... this time coming straight outta cheese-land, "dont-cha-know"

Under a proposed new law, the U-S Environmental Protection Agency will tax belching and gaseous cows and hogs for polluting the air.

It's one of several proposals put forward by the agency after the U-S Supreme Court ruled in 2007 that greenhouse gases emitted by belching and flatulence amounts to air pollution.

It would require farms or ranches with more than 25 dairy cows, 50 beef cattle or 200 hogs to pay an annual fee of about 175 dollars for each dairy cow, 87-dollars-and-50 cents per head for beef cattle and 20 dollars for each hog.

On the surface it seems to be a non-issue. You may be asking yourself, "So what! A few dairy farmers have to pay a bit more to the state."

The problem is that the Greens are spewing this non-sense - claiming that CO2 is a greenhouse gas. So the air you exhale could be categorized as a pollutant. This is utter crap because plant life absorbs CO2 and exudes oxygen. Will the next Green Initiative be to say that oxygen is a danger? If it helps them get more and more control over YOU then, damn right they'll do it!

In their zealousness to condemn Americans as fat, greedy polluters; they forget that the rest of the world isn't on the same gameplan as them. Asia doesn't give a rats' ass about greenhouse emissions. Indonesia doesn't either. Neither does Rwanda.

So we're going to destroy our manufacturing and smoke-stack industries because a hand-ful of truly ignorant law makers (and one stupid President-elect) want them gone. Is that it? We're just going to give it away?

Using this logic they'll continue to go after every little thing you do, own and breath - all in the name of "the people" or "air quality" or human rights ... whatever. Team-Obama are going to use every dirty trick to insinuate Big Brother into your lives.

How about taxing some of those fart-monster cops? You hear them in the station by the desk all the time.

Yea, Rue-y, God forbid you'd want clean air. Without the EPA and the Greens you think these companies would do the right thing? Doubt it.

Since the city is in a funding crunch, how about putting the beat guys on foot or bicycles? With the extra walking or peddling they might just be able to pass the power test.
