Gee, wonder how they will manage to keep track of how many miles we drive? Will they track every car on the road, retrofitting older vehicles with GPS or a black box?

Aren't these clowns amazing?

If you don't pay what they tell you to pay, I bet there are plenty of Leftists that will advocate remotely hitting the little button within the black box to shut down your car.

Why haven't you consumed that Thorazine Stash yet.

You are a gas bubble that wells up inside and causes discomfort. We never know if you will release as a Fart or a Burp.....it does not matter, the stench will be awful either way.....Just like the diseased words that leave your gaseous mind and enter the Internet.....empty, useless, stinking, and of no value to any living creature.

PLEASE!!!!!! Go to the Light!

Of course they would. Canada is sounding better and better every year. Except for the damned cold.

Here are a couple of other sources, just so the Slewpid can keep up.

I know, I know, these are not Huffington Post but they will just have to suffice.

I looked it up and you are correct. But Vancouver looks even better with the ag zone being rated as 8 and able to support palm trees.

Will taxes go up in other areas too in order to pay the extra taxes that the Subsidized Users of Pubic Transportation in the Urban Cesspools currently do not pay?

Hey Dumbo, let's talk about the commentaries by radicals on the DemocraticUnderground that you offer as authoritative sources. Now that's a good source - if your name is Hugo Chavez.

Just like the FICA increases reducing the net income of those WORKERS grossing $24K by $600.

No sympathy for the poor shown by the Libertards, NONE!!

The pledge from Barack Hussein Obama was that the middle class would not pay any more in taxes. How's that working out for everyone?
