Harvard Hometown Plans Coercive Taxes, Veganism to Stop Climate 'Emergency'
Going green will not be optional in Cambridge, Mass., if the Cambridge Climate Congress has its way. It will be mandatory.Really, you need to read the whole thing. It's little more than a laundry list of every far-out Gorebot enviro-nazi wet dream to roll down the pike. Note, if you will, the two main actions proposed: Banning things, and raising and/or levying taxes. This is what the left is about in a nutshell - ban what you can, make money off the rest. It comes down to money and power in the end - and has nothing to do with "saving the environment". The environment, nebulous and all-encompassing as it is, is a means, not an end.
There will be congestion pricing to reduce car travel. Curbside parking will be eliminated. There will be a carbon tax "of some kind," not to mention taxes on plastic and paper bags. And the Massachusetts city, home of Harvard University and the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will advocate vegetarianism and veganism, complete with "Meatless or Vegan Mondays."
Those are just some of the proposals put forth by the Congress, which was created in May 2009 to respond to the "climate emergency" plaguing Cambridge. Once the Congress settles on its recommendations, they will submitted to the City Council.
There's a couple things to consider here:
First off, it's Cambridge. They want so desperately to be Berkeley it's not even funny. It was the setting for "Good Will Hunting", and the area has never recovered from the thrill of hosting Robin Williams' smug leftism... This might pass - and I hope it does - and they will most certainly wind up choking on it. Let them do it; let it fail miserably; and let it serve as a beacon to the other puddinheaded greenie imbeciles out there.
Secondly, I'll make y'all a promise. They get any of this through, here's what I'll do. I'll jack my truck up a good 6" or so; put 38" Mickey Thompson Super Swampers on it; put the American flag on the left side of the bed and the Gadsden on the right; then I'll drive through Cambridge playing "Proud to be an American" through a 1200 watt stereo.
Don't thank me - it's just a service I offer...
That is all.
