Now that the Lord Messiah Obama is due to assume power, we can probably count on this EPA plan, similar taxes, and additional expensive plans designed to "halt" the stupid hoax of global warming.

“The tax for dairy cows could be $175 per cow, and $87.50 per head of beef cattle. The tax on hogs would upwards of $20 per hog,” the release said. “Any operation with more than 25 dairy cows, 50 beef cattle or 200 hogs would have to obtain permits.”

Such action by an Obama administration would take an act of Congress for livestock to be exempt.
