Okay. Get ready. I'm about to hit you with Proglodyte thinking:
California has decided to raise the gasoline tax starting in July.
The reason is (ahem):
People are driving less because gasoline is so expensive, therefore tax revenues are going down, which is anathema to the looters: Their booty has decreased.
So...the Proglodytes' answer is to RAISE GASOLINE PRICES by increasing taxes at the pump.
Please, just think about that for a minute.
Now tell me these people are not re-fucking-tarded.
P.S. And, can I just ask who this hurts most? Oh my, whadd'ya know. The Poor. Those darlings of the Left...or at least those they pretend to care about as they bind them in chains to imprison them forever on the dependency plantation.
Cigarettes, gas, booze, food.
Can they possibly be more regressive?
And they claim to hate the rich.
