Tax Bicyclists For Exhaling CO2 When They Ride, Says Wash. Rep

Taxing the air we breathe may be coming to Washington state. Yes, the insane taxing of every behavior is rising to a whole new level with the proposed "bike tax" in Washington.

According to lawmakers who proposed the bike tax, it would help raise $1 million over the next decade to be used for road maintenance. The new $25 tax will be applied on every bike sold for over $500 in the state.

One Washington lawmaker is making twisted argument in support of the new fee. Rep. Ed Orcutt wrote in an email to a bike shop that the CO2 that bicyclists exhale while riding is just one of the reasons he supports the bike tax.

"Since CO2 is deemed a greenhouse gas and a pollutant, bicyclists are actually polluting when they ride," Orcutt wrote. Therefore, they should pay taxes to help the environment as well as the roads.

Here is his full email:

This is where the lack of science knowledge among our legislative body makes them completely unqualified to serve. He made a joke alright, on himself.
The entire joke is on us, eliminate the carbon taxes and save the earth.....It's just how it works.

Whoops misread the article. $25 fee on the vehicle.

Let's say the bike gets ridden for 5 years. That's 15000 miles for a tax rate of $0.35 per kg of carbon.

So on a vehicle expected travel 200,000 miles in its lifetime and emit about 16,000 kg of carbon, the new car tax would be $5555.

Joke is still on him.

Ok, so assume for a minute that you are right, I am clueless, and this R really wants this tax.

Would you support the "bike" tax?

Cosmo would only support the "bike tax" on wealthy white people, if it was applied to a non-white or a non-rich person he would oppose it.

Huff Post Declares Antarctica To Be “WITHOUT ICE”

Antarctica has a record amount of ice this year, and has been above normal for almost 500 consecutive days. A perfect time for Huffington Post to declare the continent to be “without ice”



http://on.aol.com/video/trendy-stori...cards-headline

Goebbels would be proud of the fine work being done by his American proteges.
