Eureka – the final tax!

And from the editorial pundits at the New York Times comes a new wrinkle in the effort to end poverty and cure disease – “A tiny levy of 0.005 percent on transactions involving the world’s most traded currencies — the dollar, the euro, the pound and the yen — would raise more than $33 billion annually for development, while not hurting the market or affecting the average international traveler.”

Or so says Philippe Douste-Blazy, “the French foreign minister from 2005 to 2007, is the chairman of Unitaid and a special adviser to the United Nations secretary general on innovative financing.”

This brings up a dazzling point that the world’s financial geniuses must’ve simply overlooked in their haste to straighten out the world’s plethora of problems – the way to skin the cat is to quit messing around with rinky dinky “tiny taxes” and go for the proverbial jugular – a tax on opinions!

You heard it right – a tiny tax on blogs, blurbs, op-eds, letters to the editor, tweets, blips, and other assorted nefarious brain farts.

And that includes this blog! What a relief, to be compelled to pay for every bit of my blognog being spewed into the Blogosphere. Of course, yours truly wouldn’t actually pony up when the bill arrived. Instead, I could quit this nonsense and get back to what humanoids were meant to do in the first place – laze around the hearth with a leg bone in one hand and a glass of Meursault in the other.
