We made a 600km round trip yesterday to get the car aircon topped up, something that’s always been mere $120 or so routine in the past. Not any more–we’re faced with a bill for over $1500 to fix two slow leaks – and another 600km round trip plus motel and fuel bills – because the business owner now faces a $240,000 fine (no, that’s not a typo) for doing what commonsense dictates.
He now has to account for every gram of gas to various agencies and clipboard-wielding little fucking Nazis who can descend on his shop without notice and without a warrant.
So what ought to be a transaction between a taxpaying citizen and a private business is now controlled by an unholy alliance between the greens, politicians and bureaucrats. Somebody please tell me how this tyranny differs in any substantial way (other than the difference pointed out in the header) from Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union?
We already live under a tyrannical system and it’s time people stopped deluding themselves about it.
Leftists/”progressives”/socialists are not welcome here. Pay for your own soapbox.
