I once shot two enemy combatants.

Now imagine a year later I say it was actually three guys.

Five years on I adjust the report to say it was six.

Ten years on it was a whole fucking battalion.

Twenty years on I single handedly defeated a massed amphibious invasion of Seattle.

If I were a climate alarmist I'd get away with this.

Just curious:
How come everyone says $50 a tonne carbon tax will kill the economy but jumps at the chance to pay $302,272.73 a tonne for CO2 in a 6 pack of Coke for $3.99?

Because purchasing Coke is voluntary. Paying some bullshit tax to a bunch of bullshit people isn't.

Also 50 bucks is just where the carbon tax dream begins:

And even at the basement level, all gas taxes, no matter what they're calling them this week, drive everything up, including 6 packs of coke.

I just paid a buck thirty a litre for gas to get to the superstore and almost fainted when I looked down at a little prime rib roast, weighing just over a kilogram. The price tag said $71.69. Honestly. I'm not shitting you. Who's even paying those kinds of prices? Gas tax lovers maybe. I guess they just shake their money tree or something.

Either that or they're willing to live on franks and beans so one day they may enjoy the snowy wonderland of a promised Goretopia where Polar Bears romp about, hugging the smiley-faced, little children of progdom in gratitude for all the new ice, or whatever it is they're believing this week.

Yep. tax is the problem.
It's never the oil company or Jimmy P shoveling your money into their pockets.
Funny how in the same province gas can be 94.4 in Prince George. How at Safeway in Terrace fresh rib roast cut by an actual old fashioned unionized butcher can be $20 a kilo cheaper than the shrinkwrapped in Alberta scabmeat rib at roast LoseOn Foods.

I had no idea that scabmeat was so popular in Canada.

I suppose with all the taxes that's what you folks can afford. 8)

I had no idea anyone would actually respond to the CO2 thing either.
But now we're on the subject of ridiculous prices maybe I should've assumed beer had the same CO2 content as Coke and used 6 pack of beer for $15 here... I remember walking into a 711 type store in Oregon years ago and being shocked to see 6 packs of some obscure name beer on sale for $1 less than 6 packs of Coke.

People would riot if beer cost as much as Coke!
