"Presidential Candidate’s" Hatred for Ranchers and His Meat Tax Plan

By Jim Mundorf

Lonesome Lands does have a, No Politics, policy. This is not about politics. It’s about a dumbass.

Who the hell is this guy? Some staffer must’ve told him that if he wants to come off smart then he should take questions from teenagers. It didn’t work.

What happened is he got a little too comfortable and he almost said it. He got so comfortable in front of that completely “neutral” host who is so, “glad you asked that.” All comfy cozy in front of an audience of Georgetown University kids, who probably don’t know the difference between a cow and a horse. He almost got comfortable enough to say what he really thinks. When he says, “You know they’re just big…animals? Don’t hate the cattle, hate the…whatever.” and he waves his limp little hand toward the crowd. It almost came out. You can tell exactly what he’s thinking. The, “whatever” is the producer. “Don’t hate the cattle hate the Rancher.” Don’t believe me? Go back and watch it again and let me know what, “whatever” means. That is what he wanted to say, and that is who his plan intends to hurt. That is what the crowd knew he wanted to say, and that’s why they laughed. That is what it has come to among the completely brainwashed at Universities. Hatred towards cattle producers for, “destroying the climate” doesn’t even need to be said anymore, it is simply implied and laughed at.

His plan for destroying those hated cattle ranchers is to tax their, “emissions” until people can no longer afford to buy their products. That’s what he means by, “If you make it more expensive then you would end up changing consumption patterns over time.”

Its a fool proof plan. I’m guessing this is how it was put together at the campaign meeting. “You know that product that 99% of the population eats and loves? Well it is responsible for less than 3% of all greenhouse gases. So lets put together a plan where we destroy the industry. That way people will lose jobs and economies will suffer, while at the same time the food that everyone loves will be to expensive for them to buy.” Who wouldn’t vote for that? It’s genius.

If there are any other Tom, Dick or Harry Presidential candidates out there that would like to know how this question should have been answered, here you go:

Listen kid, the EPA says beef production is responsible for less than 3% of total U.S. greenhouse gases. You know how much that is? That’s jack squat in the scheme of things. You know how much difference you and all the sorority sisters like you make, by giving up the half a cheeseburger you eat on cheat day? An ass hairs difference. You know how much an ass hairs difference makes on jack squat. NOTHING. Not a damn bit of difference. Methane producing animals are going to exist no matter how much we starve our selves. You want to reduce your emissions? Quit flying to Mexico for spring break. Quit ordering from your parents Amazon Prime account and having everything you ever wanted flown to your dorm room. Quit ordering your salads on Postmates, or Uber Eats, and having your meals delivered to you. Get off your ass and walk down to the cafe. Have a steak and enjoy yourself. Maybe a nice young man will pry that phone out of your hand and have a conversation with you. You never know you might enjoy yourself. Americans are going to keep raising beef, and Americans are going to keep eating beef. God bless you, and God bless America.

Next question.
