MILLINOCKET, Maine, April 14, 2013 — Democratic Governor Martin O’Malley has imposed a “storm water management act” on his state. It is literally a tax on the citizens of Maryland for the rain that falls on their properties.
So, now we add weight to the burden on citizens by taxing acts of God?
Sadly, this is not a new idea. Many western states have similar “sources of revenue.”
I suppose it’s only a logical progression since the lefty, liberal progressives have been plotting the taxing of “carbon emissions” for a long time.
By the way, for you scientifically deficient folk out there, when you exhale, that’s a carbon emission.
Let me be among the first to start a new conspiracy theory: “OMG! THEY ARE GOING TO TAX YOUR BREATH!” … Why aren’t you laughing?
How does this madness end? Only when logical thinking citizens put a stop to it. In the meantime, there are other natural occurences and bodily emissions that they haven’t started taxing … yet.
