BERNIE SANDERS IS COMING FOR YOUR MEAT
Not with his proposals for how Americans are to live their lives, Bernie Sanders now suggests he’s open for taxing meat as another means of virtue-signaling on global warming. According to Breitbart News:
Sen. Bernie Sanders signaled that he is open to the possibility of a “meat tax” to help combat climate change, according to a video of a Q&A session at his town hall event in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. A town hall attendee asked the presidential candidate what he would do to address the meat industry’s impact on climate change and floated a “meat tax,” which Sanders did not immediately dismiss. While Sanders did not delve into details, he praised the woman’s question and failed to rule out the consideration of a “meat tax” in the U.S. “Thank you for the question, and it’s a good question. All I can say is if we believe, as I do and you do, that climate change is real, we’ve gonna have to tackle it in every area, including agriculture,” Sanders said. “In fact, one of the things we want to do with our farmers out there is help them become more aggressive and able to help us combat climate change, rather than contribute to it,” he continued. “You’re right. We got to look at agriculture. We’ve got to look at every cause of the crisis that we face,” he added.
So it’s not enough for Bernie to be controlling which newspapers see print, as I noted here, nor your energy choices, your health care, your house and car, your student dept, your job or your wages, and pay all your medical bills. Sanders also wants to control what you eat, to throw out the stick of more taxes on meat to prod and nudge and smack and shove you into compliance – and incidentally, draw more money to the government coffers presumably controlled by him. He’s also pandering to the crowd, which has been trying to persuade Americans to give up meat and eat one of their bad-for-you plus bad-tasting meat substitutes, something that isn’t taking off by persuasion, but might just gain traction by force of taxes. All this, after he takes away one third of your money through taxes to pay for all his handout programs, throws energy executives in jail, and then bankrupts your hospital to boot.
If it can be taxed, he taxes. If it can be regulated, he regulates. Obviously, there are no limits on Bernie’s sense of entitlement to what’s yours.
WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!
“If our country is to survive and prosper, we must summon the courage to condemn and reject the liberal agenda, and we had better do it soon.”
“You Just Can’t Make This S**t Up” category
Faculty members at Kansas University want Chick-fil-A removed from campus for being a “bastion of bigotry.” They believe the chain violates “safety and inclusion.”
AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL
Ninety eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hardworking, honest Americans. It’s the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. But then, we elected them.
