Virtue-Signalling California Restaurants Push 1% ‘Global Warming Tax’

Don’t forget your Global Warming tax!

Always, always, the best way to cope with imaginary problems is to throw money at them. It’s sure to wind up in someone’s pocket. Hey, it could be you! And you can keep throwing money because imaginary problems can never be solved, will never go away.

Global Warming/Climate Change is the hottest imaginary problem in the world today–remember, the world ends in just 12 years–and a group with the really catchy name of Restore California Renewable Restaurants has found a way to hop onto the bandwagon.

Hit customers with a 1% “Global Warming tax.”

Supposedly the money thus collected will go to buy luxury items for the organization’s leaders. Oops! Strike that. It’s supposed to pay farmers $10 for every ton of carbon emissions they eliminate from their operations. Is it safe to assume that somewhere there is somebody who knows how to calculate this? Or is it just more 99.9% Pure Krapola?

They say they will take the tax off the bill if the customer makes a point of saying he doesn’t want to pay–Man-Made Climbit Change being a total scam and all.

At the risk of being accused of being mean to waitresses, I wonder what would happen if the customers just deducted the 1% tax from the tip.

I’m beginning to think the whole reason for California’s existence is for people in New Jersey not to feel so bad. At least we’re not in California.

Yet.

    The bookends of California and New York seem to be writing us a new history and fulfilling the prophecies of the future.

    If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,
    If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.
    If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat,
    If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.

    Don’t ask me what I want it for
    If you don’t want to pay some more
    ‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman…
    And you’re working for no one but me.
    — George Harrison, “Taxman”

    America has done more than any other country by far to develop technology that decreases carbon emissions, yet the Left insists on blaming the good old USA as the main culprit.
