al gore whale in trouble
Is it time for an "Al Gore Energy Surtax"?
As a summer heat wave sends air conditioners into high gear and electricity meters spinning fast enough to provide a nice breeze I think it's time to hit the liberal hypocrisy over energy use (and as yet unproven man-caused global warming) head on by proposing an "Al Gore Energy Surtax".

Since the average US household uses about 10-12 thousand KwH (kilowatt hours) in electricity each year a surtax of, say, 100% would be levied on homes consuming more than 20 thousand KwH a year. That's a healthy gap to make sure we don't injure anyone who might vote for us who is an oppressed minority.

The fun part is that Al Gore, who reportedly uses more than 200 thousand KwH in a year (in just one home) would have to pay twice as much for about 180 thousand of those KwH.

Surely $0.15-$0.20 a KwH isn't too much to spare for such an urgent, necessary matter?

Do you think Al Gore would support a measure that would add about $35,000 to his electricity bill for the year?

Neither do I! When it comes to energy and taxes Al Gore prefers to buy electricity from himself. You know, one of those "green" energy coops that he "invests" in. Hypocrisy? Conflict of interest? No, you misunderstand, Al Gore is simply trying to save his own money while he spends yours the Earth!
