Meat Tax

This is in Germany, but when half of our populace thinks we should follow Europe's "lead" on all things social and environmental, we need to stay alert.

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

Should we also tax Vegans? They got to be farting like, well, steers with all the stuff they eat.

The Germans are very efficient at extorting money from the public, so this is of no surprise to me. In fact, I never realized some food products weren't taxed at the full 19% VAT.

But this:
"The tax increase was initially proposed by Germany’s Animal Welfare Association that suggested such tax would bring down the CO2 emissions in addition to improving much-criticized agricultural practices of Germany."
I have no idea what the "much-criticized agricultural practices" are. I've spent a lot of time around farms and farmers in Germany. I've never seen farm animals treated so well as they are there. There are so many "green" laws now that they have to follow, I don't know what else could be legislated that wouldn't just shut farming down.

If all these people that worry so much about CO2 emissions would tightly place a plastic bag over their heads for a couple hours a day, it would greatly reduce emissions. After all we all exhale CO2 and after having a bag on their heads for a while they would not produce methane.

they should start cutting back on the number of planes that fly every day. all that jet fuel at 33,000 feet and above has to be doing some kind of harm. a lot more than farts are.

If farts cause global warming, I could be almost solely responsible.

I live about 3 milesfrom a large grocery store. Near the store is a large low income housing project with a large percentage of minorities living in it. As you approach the store you see their cars parked in the no parking area against the store. Laws don't apply to them I guess. Enter the store, see them with carts over filled with meat. Working folks can't afford steak every night for supper. NO there will never be a meat tax, it's not fair to the welfare folks. They have rights .

I had a jager schnitzel, German potato salad a liter of HB and some fried cabbage last night. I was gassy and proud of it. It's almost sauerkraut making season.
