Where Democrats have firm control, everything conceivable is subject to their greedy taxation — even rain. From New Jersey:
A new bill calls for the creation of local or regional storm water utilities, giving local counties and municipalities the power to collect a tax from properties with large paved surfaces such as parking lots…
This would squeeze taxes from owners of both businesses and homeowners upon whose property rain falls.
The bill passed in the Senate and the Assembly and is now headed to Gov. Phil Murphy’s desk.
Murphy being a Democrat, he is unlikely to say no to a new tax.
New Jersey is already one of the highest-taxed states in the union. Yet it may be the state with the worst finances. If high taxes solved fiscal problems, New Jersey would be high and dry. Taxing rain will submerge it still deeper in the flood of economic dysfunction that characterizes states run by moonbats.

Ask your friends, family, and neighbors if they’re aware that the FBI recently thwarted a Muslim terrorist who allegedly wanted to blow up and shoot up the White House, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, and a synagogue.
Chances are, they haven’t heard about Hasher Jallal Taheb, a 21-year-old native-born American from the Atlanta, Ga. metropolitan area who was arrested after a months-long undercover investigation. If those you inquire with heard about Taheb, ask them if they know he was a jihadist who changed his name and believed that jihad is an obligation and pathway to martyrdom.
You want to talk about a national emergency? How about the frequency with which so many Democrats, as well as the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex), cover up radical Islamic terrorism?
To paraphrase Orwell’s Animal Farm, all terrorists are created equal, but some are created more equal than others. Over the last few years, with the unfortunate rise in white supremacy-related violence and murders, Democrats and the DMIC have moved the goal posts on who’s a terrorist and who isn’t. Actually, I don’t mind their expansion of the term, as I can now claim as terrorists some members of Black Lives Matter, protesters who block active-duty ambulances, and pro-fascists who identify themselves as “Antifa.”
