Emissions Tax Scam - The Cost

The ETS Bill (with it's 750 amendments) was recently pushed through Parliament under urgency. Why, no one knows except Helen Clark and her minions whose main goal in life appears to be to control the masses, increase taxes by any means possible and bury us in paper work.

Of course, if we hadn't signed up for the Kyoto Suicide Pact in the belief that Owl Gore actually knows something about the environment and pushed the Global Warming bullshit (GAF = Global Alarm Fest), we wouldn't need the ETS.

Homepaddock reports on the cost of the Emissions Tax Scam here.

What to do about it.

"HortNew Zealand say it will cost the sector an extra $40 million a year and Lincoln University says in 2013 it will cost a sheep and beef farmer $36,000 and a dairy farmer $41,000 a year."

The only way I can see myself surviving on my farm, which is already bordering
on the negative profit line, is to find a way of minimising the tax as best I can.

In my PhotoShop Genetic Engineering workshop I've come up with this low emission, low carbon footprint deer. To make use of the spare room at the front, I've added the front feet of a wallaby which will be useful for the deer to manipulate things such as a pen. Giving the deer the ability to use a pen will further cut my costs by allowing the animals to fill out their own Carbon Tax Returns, thus reducing the number of staff required on my small farm to keep up with the paper work.

Of course the downside of low carbon footprint farm animals is the loss of meat production. To get around this I have genetically engineered larger fruit and vegetables, as seen with the example of the large Kiwifruit below.

The downside (there is always a downside) especially with the Kiwifruit, is the huge steel structures that will have to be built to support the vines.

A vicious circle.

Well, somebody has to comment, and I may as well be the first - on this anyway.

I reckon your modified deer needs longer arms and better phalanges with which to play musical instruments all the better for providing the music at Stag Nights...

I have several photos of your grey pooch - it was warning me off any idea of taking over its kennel (not that I any ideas of that then, but given current events, I may change my mind!)

I see Helen has eased off a bit on the Fiji thing - about time too - certainly was very unpopular here. Not a bleat, not a whimper when Spheight had evreyone bailed up in Parliament in 2000...

No matter if some one searches for his necessary thing, so he/she wishes
to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.
