Y’know, people are being really negative about the whole cap and trade thing, but it really will help out the poor.
Rather than beg for change, they can just hold their breath to earn carbon credits, which they can trade in the new carbon futures market, where they will trade the right to use something that no one can reasonably own, contain, quantify nor qualify.
In this way, we could provide simple and easy employment for the downtrodden – all they have to do is hold their breath half the day, and we’ll sell the carbon credits for them and split the profit.
It’s WIN WIN. Isn’t Global Fascism er I mean Socialism GREAT?!?!
Ooops! NewsFlash : We no longer live in a Democracy, but a Hypocracy instead!
If you let some total strangers – foreigners, in fact – overlay a tax system across your sovereignty, you will be burning the Constitution to keep warm tonight, because there won’t BE a United States Of America anymore.
This is exactly what our collective ancestors sought to escape when they settled this continent over 300 years ago.
If this Global Power Grab is allowed to happen, especially on such fraudulent premises, then you might as well go take a crap on your GrandDaddy’s grave, and roll over and just die.
CO2 IS NOT A POLLUTANT.
A TAX ON CO2 IS A TAX ON BREATHING ITSELF – WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU PRODUCE WHEN YOU BREATHE? THAT’S RIGHT FOLKS – CO2 !!
Hopefully this Communist / Fascist power grab will be one last ideological blip in history for these vile and wholly unnecessary and unhelpful social systems.
God Bless, and Happy New Year!
