Citizen Flatulence Tax. No, Really.

Hatched: Thursday, June 25th, 2009

If your bovines or birds are farting too much – PFFPFT! – it is gonna cost ya, courtesy of the EPA and its revenue-raising flatulence tax. It would be laughable if it weren’t true.

But wait a minute. Aren’t there more farting people than farting cows or pigs? What about Citizen Fart Tax? At least our farming friends would be paying for their own flatulence…and not that of our gas-passing friends that go oink, moo and cluck.

Ironically, there’s no way to “cure” an animal from letting one rip…unless of course, we do away with animal agriculture…see where this is going?

So, it’s a either a classic case of taxation without representation, or another attempt to dismantle a way of life for the American livestock farmer – and the way we eat.

Either way, it’s time to speak up, people.
