Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Obama to tax Christmas trees in order to promote Christmas trees

Satire?  Uh…no.  It’s for real.

President Obama’s Agriculture Department today announced that it will impose a new 15-cent charge on all fresh Christmas trees—the Christmas Tree Tax—to support a new Federal program to improve the image and marketing of Christmas trees.

Right.  Because Christmas is so underappreciated and undercommercialized!

H3ll, I’ve been hearing Christmas music and seeing Christmas trees since November 1.  What, is the Obamanation wanting to ensure that I start hearing Silver Bells and seeing wreaths in July so that Christmas is duly promoted?

Exit question:  Did Congress cede the power of taxation to the Ag Department and I just didn’t get the memo?

  1. No. Congress did not cede the power of taxation to the AG department. This administration just doesn’t care about the rule of law. Just like the guy sitting in the oval office.
    Something is just not right about this latest move of this administration. What’s the other hand doing? Besides getting off on the power they are feeling by sidestepping Congress every time they feel like it.
