Manipulating our lives
April, I speculated that there is a Tax Rolodex kept by the fools in the Sacramento legislature that they use to justify and collar our necks with more taxes.
There are plans to agitate for a new tax on rechargeable lithium ion batteries used in many personal devices and electric cars. The root cause is lithium ion leakage.
They claim that excessive ion losses are upsetting the results of the speculative climate change models they so willingly quote and use for policy making. Industry’s use of fossil fuels appears to be innocent of blame this time around. The main concern seems to be with the excess static electricity build up in the atmosphere that plays havoc with the weather and other issues. Some unintended consequences of ion leakage are lightening storm strikes are being skewed, nature’s Aurora Borealis display is wounded, hairdos are unruly, our feet scuffing on rugs sends shocking reminders that action must be taken. Their solution, as always, will be more government control and penalties for non-compliant citizens.
This tongue in cheek satirical expose can serve as a preview of where the controlling and anti-modernist mavens will lead us with their excessive manipulations of our lives.
