This article bemoans the fact that Obama’s administration is not going to put a tax on cow burping. They attribute the lack of cow belching legislation to a powerful farmers lobby. First of all, it seems to me that it would have to be a ranchers lobby, rather than a farmers lobby. Nevertheless, the article presents a cynical attitude toward Obama and the democrats, insinuating that their lack of legislation is COWardly (poor pun).
According to the article, cow belching ought to be taxed because it is the single largest producer of methane. The article is derisive toward democrats because they are leaving cow belches unlegislated… for now. Has anyone stopped to think that legislating cow belching might be a government overreach? Is this not crazy?
It is but one more of the many examples of what kind of an ethic we are in for as we drift away from Judeo-Christian values incorporated in the constitution. If not a Judeo-Christian ethic, then whose? If it is a green ethic, then cow burps are just the beginning of the madness.
