    Default Satan's Tax Dawning!

    Carbon tax on the way - The Irish Times - Tue, Aug 04, 2009

    FIVE YEARS after it was supposed to happen, a carbon tax and a climate change Bill may finally make it to the floor of the Dáil. John Gormley has received Cabinet approval to draft a climate change Bill that will set down principles in relation to greenhouse gas emissions and provide the mechanisms to deliver on them. Although the legislation will have to be cleared with Fianna Fáil, Taoiseach Brian Cowen is unlikely to persevere with the objections of his predecessor.
    There never has been a tax so ill conceived as this.

    This Govt, and opposition it must be said, are devoid of common sense.
    The people will have to rise up and be counted and oppose such a tax.
    Cowardice asks the question - is it safe? Expediency asks the question - is it politic?
    Vanity asks the question - is it popular? But Conscience asks the question - is it right?
    And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular;but one must take it simply because it is right. -MLK

    Dumb to you, apt for others.

    So get ready for a tax on Meat and Dairy Products -after all, Cattle represent 33% of all our "carbon emissions" how can they be allowed to escape?

    Every facet of you life can be taxed down to the No. of Children you have which could only be conceived in the mind of Satan himself.

    This I believe is the reason the Green party are now supporting carbon based energy generation, we must suffer for our sins, this has huge implications for our already weak competitiveness

    We get taxed with a "Green Tax" and meanwhile Eamon Ryan is sanctioning the building of more gas powered generating stations.
    Isn't it simply a disgrace

    I think it’s a good reliable form of taxation.
    It is linked to consumption as well so is equitable.

    Shame we don’t have a water tax based on consumption considering the level of waste in this country and the amount of money spent on fixing leaks in our medieval water pipes.

    You mean it's based on our continued existence.

    I pay TAX therefore I exist.
