If you’re a frequent reader of JAOD, you might get the impression I’m a teensy-weensy bit obsessed with flatus. Maybe I am, but the truth is, gas is funny and for some inexplicable reason, farts are about a fillion-dillion times funnier than burps or even belches. At least they used to be.
Anyway, I was trolling online news services for inspiration this morning, as I often do, when I came across this headline: White House Looks to Regulate Cow Flatulence as Part of Climate Agenda. I’m serious. Cow flatulence… as in cow farts.
Via the Daily Caller…
I can’t help wondering. Don’t government officials have better things to do with their time than attempting to stop cows from farting? And aren’t there better ways to spend our tax dollars?
How does one monitor cow farts to begin with? He who “smellt” it dealt it? He who denied it supplied it? Not to mention even if you can identify the perpetrators of the crimes, how exactly does one regulate cow flatulence? A Shared Responsibility Payment imposed on bovines who fart? Or maybe Beano?
It’s so ridiculous, it’s laughable. Except that it’s not… because regulating cow farts is proof that the fallacy of “global warming,” or “climate change” or whatever you call it serves as carte blanche for the government to impose regulation after regulation in a continuing effort to control us, restrict us and tax us. And it’s all done under the umbrella of “saving the planet.” Forget about climate change for just a minute (and by the way climate change is NORMAL and has been happening on earth for billions of years) and consider this. Liberty and justice is endangered. We must challenge the lunacy or life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will suffer the fate of the do-do bird and for those of you who think it can’t happen here, think again. It can. It is. And it’s no laughing matter. Farts aren’t as funny as they used to be.
