It’s Wild That Earth Day And Tax Day Are So Close Or Something

Warmiat Susan Darovic is totally stoked that Earth Day and Tax Day Are So darned close together

April 22, Earth Day, is a good time to consider our progress on slowing climate change. That it closely follows Tax Day (April 18) seems appropriate, for climate warming is an economic problem too.

Fossil fuels are very costly. For one thing, they continue to receive heavy government subsidies. For another, they are not required to pay for the results of their pollutants.

Obviously, she’s yet another brain dead Warmist who fails to understand the difference between subsidies and tax breaks/incentives. Or, she’s simply doing what so many Warmists/Progressives do: intentionally telling a whoppet. A lie.

Of course, she wanders down the path of doom for bit, before getting to her real point

We need an economic answer to this, an answer that is market-based. Put a price on fossil fuels that covers their pollution. Then watch American ingenuity pull us back from these expensive disasters.

A good plan is the carbon-fee-and-dividend plan proposed by former Secretary of State George Shultz. This plan would put a steadily rising fee on the production of fossil fuels, based on the carbon dioxide they emit, return all the proceeds equally to all the people, and safeguard our balance of trade with a tariff.

Funny how it almost always ends in one of two things, or both: taxes and governmental dominance. In this case, she’s pitching more taxation. Surprise! Why is the answer never “I’ll do my part and give up my own use of fossil fuels, doing all I can to make my life carbon neutral, and I ask my fellow believers to do the same”? No, it’s a tax, which will magically be returned to the people who have seen their cost of living skyrocket, and, double surprise, will now be even more reliant upon The Government to survive.

They’ll also be limited in mobility, as the cost of fuels will be to high to travel. Authoritarians love to keep people in place. If they control your movement, they control you.

Anyhow, happy Earth Day, where concern for real environmental issues has been supplanted with a desire for authoritarian centralized Government on Other People.

At least she didn’t trot out the notion that this is “free market” based, like others do. This would be a government imposition, a government economy.

    Only brain-dead conservatards think that tax breaks are not subsidies.

    Only someone who thinks “We have regulated the US economy into the greatest economic engine in history.” could think tax breaks are subsidies.

    Let me help although I doubt you’ll be able to understand it.

    A “subsidy” means the government giving wealth that it seized from individuals or businesses to other individuals or businesses.

    A “tax break or cut” means reducing the amount of wealth the government seizes from individuals or businesses.

    Talk about brain dead…..

    Mr. M.,

    If you increase your IQ 40 more points you might be able to get a job in NC checking dicks in public restrooms.

    What you’ve supplied is what you imagine a subsidy to be. Unfortunately for you, there’s a whole big old world out there with people not as cementheaded as you and yours. We call these people “normal”. What far-right extremists want is to keep their government subsidies while eliminating those of people they don’t like.

    Highways, police protection, defense spending, public schools, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid are all subsidies from the government to folks. We get that you don’t like chipping in or paying your fair share. We get that the only subsidies you oppose are those to poor Negroes. Although, it’s pretty clear you dropped out of school before your 16th BD, up until then did you ever attend a public school? If so you received a subsidy.

    Depending on what state of the old confederacy you live in, your state is likely subsidized with billions of dollars from wealthier, more productive northern states via the federal government.

    Sure, sure. To a con, the only subsidies are checks or debit cards given to Negroes. If everyone else in your hamlet pays taxes on their purchases, but you do not, would you not consider that a subsidy?

    You have a bizarre notion that taxes are evil and seized from people like you and given to takers like Mr. Dana.

    So you again prove you haven’t a clue what you write about as evidenced by your rambling diatribe that makes no sense whatsoever.

    Sad, jeffery, really quite sad.
