Inspired by a post in another thread.

Prime Minister Gillard’s proposed oxygen tax is set to be presented to the Senate this week despite the UN calling the tax a “direct threat to human life”.

In a speech to Labor party faithfuls, Ms Gillard defended the tax as “necessary” and warned that any measures to block it in the senate would be considered “extremism”.


Under the proposed tax, Australians would be taxed $1.75 per cubic meter of air they breath.

The government has declined to reveal what the essential purpose of the tax is.

Don't think they have thought of trying to tax it.

So you read a satire article and thought to yourself, "I wouldn't put it past 'em! I think I will start a topic about it."

Very revealing.

You have a really low credulousness threshold, don't you. But we already knew that.

Wouldn't be the first person in the world to mistake the Onion and knock-off sites as legit :)

In fact, before voting, make sure your candidate isn't mentioned below :)

Thinking of the story itself, isn't so far-fetched actually.

If they can make it illegal to catch rainfall and use it for gardening and such who knows what's next.

The bogus article about the Pope saying there is no hell is going around like wildfire. People are really buying into it.

There isn't. Hell was a Catholic invention corrupting the idea of Gehenna and Hades. Since the Catholics invented the lie, they should be the ones to undo it and set the record straight. Even if it is a bogus story. :)

You won't catch the Pope at the Third Vatican Council saying there is no hell. Especially since there is no Third Vatican Council.

A Third Vatican Council would be headline news around the world, regardless of whether the Pope said there is no hell.

If we follow Obama logic...
The air we breathe,we didn't make that.Someone else did.
So therefore we are benefitting from what someone else produced or what something else produced.
So we need to be taxed on that.If we breathe the air we live to produce goods and services.
So we are proffiting from something that was created so it should be taxed...

There is no doubt that someone is already working on calculating how much air
a person breathes in daily amd how much is turned into carbon dioxide.

So they will tax us on taking in air and emitting carbon dioxide and polluting the environment.
Thay can tax us on what goes in and what comes out.... Brilliant.

[AAP

Ousted prime minister Julia Gillard has urged her former Labor colleagues to stand by carbon pricing ahead of the coalition's plans to have it scrapped during federal parliament this week.

Climate change will be the key battleground when the 44th parliament sits for the first time, with the Abbott government expected to introduce its carbon tax repeal bills first thing on Wednesday morning.


The Greens oppose the bills while Labor says it's open to scrapping the tax if the government replaces it with an emissions trading scheme - something the coalition is not going to do.

Ms Gillard on Sunday encouraged her colleagues to continue "staring down the most reckless of fear campaigns".

"I always want our nation to be brave enough to shape the future, not to be passive and overwhelmed by it," she told the Victorian Women's Trust in Melbourne.
