Maryland to tax rain that falls on your property [Purp]

No, its not a joke.

...Local governments would charge property owners a fee based on the amount of pavement on their property. It would be at the jurisdiction of the local governments to determine the size of those fees...
...With only 20 minutes remaining before adjournment, the amended bill was sent to the House, which approved the legislation 91-45. Gov. Martin O’Malley is expected to sign the legislation into law...
When you hand local politicians a blank check to pick your pocket, nothing could possibly go wrong, right? They're all like responsible, trustworthy and shit...always with the public interest first and foremost in their minds.

None of this money could possibly be stolen or misdirected. Unthinkable in an incorruptible state like Maryland...

Next year, they come for the air you breath.

The cleansing fire can't come soon enough.
