    Yeah, just heard about this this morning so I haven't been able to investigate it to much yet. Personally I hope its just a joke that was started and the media just isn't seeing that it is....

    What about the air we breath?

    Certainly that deserves a tax of some sort.

    Let's call it the "respiratory usage fee."

    If this is true then I wouldn't be surprised that some idiot tries an air tax...I can remember when people scoffed and laughed at this kind of "suggestion". Including me. .......I'm not laughing anymore.....

    Morons continue to elect morons and yet express shock when they try to enact moronic laws.

    Yet another liberal gov't that simply asserts a need for ever more revenue and power.
