The Mileage Tax Will Be Next

They're very serious about this.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) this week released a report that said taxing people based on how many miles they drive is a possible option for raising new revenues and that these taxes could be used to offset the costs of highway maintenance at a time when federal funds are short.

But it's not just highway-replace/repair they're going to extract. Gotta get a pound of flesh AND a few pints of blood!!

...CBO's assessment of "costs" was broader than just those costs associated with maintaining highway systems.

"Any given driver’s highway use also imposes costs on other users, on nearby nonusers, on the environment, and on the economy in the form of congestion, risk of accidents, noise, emissions of greenhouse gases and pollutants that affect local air quality, and dependence on foreign oil," CBO said.

Can't wait for LaHood and the boyzzzzzz to fix a price on "risk of accidents."

Oh, yah, "privacy"? What's "privacy"?

Not payin' it. I'll quit my job and go on "Obama-stash".

Oh..and I suspect it's (another) unconstitutional tax.

It is time to "Egypt" Washington D.C.'s ass.

It is over.

It is all broken beyond repair...including the ballot box.

Good luck with that St. Revolution! I'll stick with the ballot and not the bullet.

Those not willing to fight for freedom, anony, are willing to cede it to those in power.

What he said.

Disgruntled--Are you implying that since I believe in the power of the ballot that I am unwilling to fight for freedom?

Yah, sure. Whatever.

St. Revolution and his ilk (thankfully, a deranged minority) wish to impose on the majority of us TRUE-BLOODED AMERICANS a tyrannical theocracy. Seems to me that he and his cronies have much in common with radical Muslim extremists. Anyone deemed a non-believer, heathen, etc. would suffer under St. Revolution's maniacal rule. He is a danger to our way of life and to Christians everywhere.

How's that ballot box working out for your pocket book?

How's that ballot box working out for your health care?

How's that ballot box working out for your privacy?

You shouldn't use big concepts like "tyrannical" and "theocracy" until you understand what you're writing about.

I'll give you some simpler concepts even "the blind and ignorant" like you can understand:

Patriot Act

Fall 2011 conservative manifesto bullshit

broken promises
corrupt electoral college
non-citizen President

no bid Haliburton over and over

Presidential "czars"
legal abortion
police militarization
reverse discriminatory US Attorney General
trillion dollar debt
Red China owned US debt
three illegal wars
Frnklin Raines
FNMA corruption
FreddieMac corruption

SallieMae financial student oppression

no Wall St. indictments
GoldMan Sachs
ignorant apathetic Americans

You getting the picture, toehead?

Do your homework before you sputter your ignorance.

I'm trying to help you, you putz.

I'll tell you what...I'll make you a deal.

When we take back this country, you can continue to pay your overbloated taxes to me's that? I'll offer you continuous apathy in your financial bondage.

The ONLY thing William Wallace did wrong is die for ignoramuses like you.

You jackass...

It was the bullet and NOT the ballot that allows you now your freedom to blog your tripe.

I don't recall any of the founding fathers using ballots to win independence, freedom, equity, and constitutionality.

The only derangement existing is how completely brainwashed, trusting, lethargic, and apathetic YOUR ILK has become.

"Tyrannical theocracy" that.

Disgruntled--To answer your questions, pretty good!

St. Revolution--You just gave a laundry list indicting rich and poor, businessman and shopkeeper, local politician and members of Congress, etc. of malfeasance! And you say I'm the putz???

How about try to overthrow the government with you and your pathetic army, and when you are caught, you can say you're sorry, and I will accept your apology. Now go take your meds like a good little boy and play in your padded room!

"It was the bullet and NOT the ballot that allows you now your freedom to blog your tripe."

The founding fathers used the bullet reluctantly, and only as a last resort. Our country may be in trouble, but REASONABLE people will work within our system to make changes rather than topple it, as you advocate.

You have to stop trying to blog with the grownups and the big boys.

You cannot even thematically write blog prose without copying my former "agreement" theme.

You write nonsensical babble such as, " just gave a laundry list indicting rich and poor, businessman and shopkeeper, local politician and members of Congress, etc. of malfeasance! And you say I'm the putz???..." which makes no sense, has no flow, and has no logical connection, first phrase idea to second phrase idea...i.e., the sentence makes no logical sense.

You then proceed to overwhelm us with your terrible and false historical acumen RE: "reluctant last resort bullet use".

Are you for real?

I know your average ~100 IQ is.

Eat AAAAALLLLLL your green beans, Billy. It's good brain food. And, maybe, some day, you'll grow up big and stupid...just like you are now!

Buena suerta y adios, estopido.
