Environmentalists are targeting your hamburgers and buffalo wings with a Meat Tax. And they claim they have never been closer to a meat tax.
As reported by Bloomberg Law:
Hamburger addicts, barbecue junkies, and fried chicken fanatics may soon be asked to pay a surcharge for their obsessions with meat.
Excise taxes on beef, pork, and chicken could be the next big thing in a state and local tax environment thats already comfortable with sin tax regimes aimed at cigarettes, alcoholic beverages, and gambling and is adapting quickly to special levies on sugar-sweetened beverages, greenhouse gases, and marijuana.
While there are no current legislative proposals imposing state or local surcharges on meat, a growing number of public health, environmental, and animal rights advocates are bullish on tax schemes addressing the mounting social costs of meat production and consumption.
We have never been closer to a meat tax, said Ashley Byrne, associate director of campaigns for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). We have seen peopleincluding meat eatersrealizing that meat is bad for their health and meat is taking this incredible toll on the environment. People seem more open than ever to an excise tax on meat. If we are going to tax tobacco, if we are going to tax soda, it absolutely makes sense to have a similar tax on meat.
>>We have never been closer to a meat tax, said Ashley Byrne
You have never been closer to civil war with people who outgun you a thousand to one.
There should be a tax on enviros because of all the money they cause to be spent on their loony ideas. That money includes orchestrating laughter campaigns: money that could be better spent elsewhere.
Like in the taxpayers’ pockets or Costco...anywhere other than listening to their stupid ideas.
Liberals have more dumb-ass ideas than you can shake a stick at.
The enviro-lunatics can kiss my meat.
Enviro-weenies can go to hell!
The islamicommies in the CA legislature will be the first.
Scratch a Lefty, find a control freak.
I don't know about that....Oregon could beat California in this one.....
Less regulations baby!
Imagine the next election cycle and the TV commercial we could run?
On the LEFT is a picture of a white vegan with piercings all over their face . . .
On the RIGHT is President Trump
The voice over begins:
“On the right side of the screen is President Trump, a man whose tax cuts put money in your pocket to make it easier to take your family out to a nice dinner.
On the left side of the screen is the white social justice warrior vegan . . . you know the type, the type that thinks the President is ‘Nuts’. That human waste decided it was a good idea to tax that meal substantially if you order steak, chicken, spare ribs and all sorts of American-produced products like it because heaven forbid you don’t do exactly what they deem good for you.
When you go to the ballot just remember one simple thing . . . the D stands for the vegan and the R stands for your family meal. Vote according to which you favor.”
Then run that thing non-stop in every inner city you can. The rural areas won’t need any prodding and the suburbs will likely tweet the commercial for 24 hours a day . . .
Good idea...keep it simple and basic.
I’m butchering a hog tomorrow. How you gonna tax that?
All environmentalists ought to volunteer to be neutered to save the earth from overpopulation.
So.....are they going to send the revenuers after us hunters?
Can’t we just shoot them now? The level of sophomoric stupidity is approaching glacier levels. These people think they are educated and wise but have no understanding and no real knowledge of nature.
Those people need to get a life... when’s open season on moronic liberals? Idiots, those environuts...a tax? Not with Trump...
We're going to reach a point with these people that force is the only thing that is going to stop them.
the 501c3 status for nonprofit enviro organizations should be lifted. the cost od such organizations should not be subsidized
