Another Dumb Idea

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.

The Beatles

Yet another reason to pack up the car and leave Illinois:
  • There's a new push to tax you based on the number of miles you drive.

    Gas tax revenue has fallen in Illinois, so this would be a way to make money off everyone, including hybrid and electric car drivers. But some critics worry about how the government will monitor the miles you drive.

    [...] State Senate leader John Cullerton is pushing for a 1.5 cent per mile tax to fund road repairs, saying with more people driving fuel-efficient vehicles and electric vehicles, gas tax revenue is on the decline.
Has any politician in Illinois ever some up with a plan that doesn't involve raising taxes? Because we can't think of one, and even the "temporary" tax raises they push through Springfield have a nasty habit of turning "permanent" in short order.

Ask Cullerton if he will pay the tax when his drunken kid takes the state-owned car, using state-paid-for gas, and gets pulled over for a 501.

Tax all the bicyclists over 18 yoa by implementing a bike tag, similar to what motorcycles have. Bicyclists use the roads for pleasure, work, to race along the lake front as if it was their own special course, and have special lanes designated for them, etc. Make the bicyclists help pay for the roads they use.

Politicians want you to conserve energy, so people are driving less and using less gas. Therefore revenue from the gas tax is down. So now the politicians want to add another tax. Your dam if you do, and dam if you don't. Keep on coming with the taxes and watch more and more citizens drive right out of this state.

If this passes, I will revise my plan to move out of Cook county. I will leave the state of Illinois and take my forty thousand dollars of annual discretionary income with me.

I'm done. Bottled water tax, parking permit fees, inflated real estate taxes, plastic bag drama. I'm over regulated, underserved and unprotected. It's impossible to drive a car in this city, thanks to unnecessary bike lanes everywhere and potholes and conflicting construction projects tying up miles of through streets and major intersections.

Now, it's turn the Ike into a tollway, raise the gas tax to fund another useless giveaway program, then tax my mileage, put a METER into my car to VERIFY my mileage, add a garbage pickup fee... I AM DONE with the fiefdom that is Chicago and the state of Madiganistan.

Oh, that'll be easy. The insurance companies -- I think State Farm is out in front -- are pushing like mad to get GPS into your car, reporting your driving habits back to them real-time, to be used in determining your risk and your insurance rates.

They are already into "smartwatch/health monitors" that will make sure you go to the gym and make sure you spend the mandated time there, and the heart rate transmitted back and so forth will verify that you are exercising, not just snapping towels at people.

I'm not kidding.

"The Internet Of Things." One company that manufactures the sensors to make smart refrigerators, alarm clocks, heating systems, everything, says that "99% of the objects in the world are not connected to the Internet.

"We aim to change that."

Body cameras for everyone next, for both life and health insurance. Are you safely home reading a book of affirmations, or are you hanging outside Target Range Liquors at 3 AM?

4/15/2016 12:21:00 AM

I believe that the law says that bicyclists are "not the intended users of the road, just the allowed users." This has been used to shoot down lawsuits by cyclists injured from hitting potholes, construction debris, storm drain covers that your front wheel will drop into, malfunctioning traffic lights, missing signs, poor/stupid design (like those curb "buildouts" in some areas that you can hit, and that force you out into traffic in some areas), etc.

Aim this gun a little higher. Stop the obscenely wealthy with their Panamanian law firms and the huge corporations from "offshoring" everything, and you won't need to be sending bills to some poor guy trying to get to the grocery store.

...and they want to WIDEN it somehow.

No funding available for it now, but this is such a HUGE project that they will have to widen and expand all kinds of other streets and highways to acommodate the detoured traffic before they even start. Years off -- if it ever happens at all.

When I was born, there were 150 million people in the U.S. Now there are over 300 million -- and lots more to come.

Overpopulation is one of the biggest threats to civilization -- to the environment, to freedom (more people = laws on top of laws on top of laws, to try to hold the lid on), to your pocketbook, to your very sanity.

It's like "festival seating" (i.e., bare concrete floor) at the old rock concerts. Pack as many in there as you can, and run around snatching up the loose change dislodged in the chaos...

Actually, the worst damage caused to roads is by the vehicles with the highest weight-per-tire, like loaded trucks, but some of the heavier passenger cars too. The weather has a big impact obviously, but the damage from vehicles is literally correlated with the vehicles carrying the most weight-per-tire.

If they want to tax miles driven, they should at least take weight into account.

How would they know if I'm putting miles on illinois roadways or any other states roadways? If they aren't using GPS to calculate the milage then just tracking distance is going to charge people unfairly, not that they care. That being said, wouldn't all other states then have a claim against the taxes collected by illinois for the miles driven on their roadways? Seems impossible.

The "On Board Diagnostic II"(OBDII) A modern cars have (since 1996) records your mileage, gas mileage, and other data which the car dealer uses for servicing. I hate to say it but there is all kinds of goodies a crap politician could extract taxes from. Mileage, you could extrapolate gas used by the gas flow sensors. However the flash drives that store this info can be re-flashed thus erasing any such data. Dealers do this sort of thing anyway when they update the firmware in the control units on vehicles. So I can see "tune-up" shops 100 feet over the border with neighboring states. Joe's Tune Shop,"your all in one place for car servicing, we will even "wipe" your windows, and "vacuum" the carpet. This is in no way illegal because you are not altering the emission controls.

As I recall it, iIt was about ten years ago when this Tax The Car Mileage scheme first made the news.

Some parasite democrat -- naturally -- out in Oregon or Washington State mentioned the idea of Taxing Mileage Driven due to all the efficient cars hitting the road. I said his idea would spread -- DemocRATS & Tax Schemes spread like the Flu. Many folks online thought I was just being a 'mean partisan republican'. Well, okay, I was, but so what. I was also correct.

The fact is that as soon as the first demo-commie run state can figure out how to make this Mileage Tax work, shortly thereafter it'll be in every state.

Naturally you say, there will be a rebate for the Gas Tax you're also paying, after all you're being doubly taxed. Uh-huh, sure. Democrats like giving tax money back. ROTFLMAO !

In addition, federal tax credits can go as high as $7500 for electric/hybrids.

Google says:
Illinois is one of only seven states that charge a sales tax at the gas pump! Currently, the state's 6.25 percent sales tax adds nearly 20 cents per gallon to the price of gasoline in Chicago. The county and city sales taxes add an additional 11 cents per gallon to the price.

I'm so sick of millions of taxpayer dollars being used to build public transportation infrastructure, and then extending subsidized rates to people who are too cheap or irresponsible to get their OWN vehicle.

-I own five cars. ALL of them are older than 1996 (I don't like "Air Team" big brother, they can suck it) some of them as old as 1969. Would I be required to purchase electronic crap and install on all cars? Ha ha ha just thinking about it, this will NOT fly.

-So decent cars with adequately-sized V8 engines are phased out because they're inefficient (who's paying for the gas anyway?) and everyone now gets the choice of efficient garbage, or electric or hybrid garbage, and the pols are upset because gas tax revenues are going down? How about, this is America, let ME decide what I want to drive, and stop making things so the manufacturers are forced to build garbage. (direct-injected carbonizing junk, and high-strung and overworked turbo V6s powering FULL SIZED SUVs???) Full-sized big blocks for everyone.

-In closing, whatever the penalty is for not complying with this, or tampering with this, that's what I will get. Yup, I've had enough. I'm sure I'll pay dearly. There will be no monitoring of the miles I drive. This is America, I'm an American, and if you don't like it you can stick it where the sun don't shine.

I was just wondering seriously.

A) that you couldn't smoke a cigarette in a building
B) that you would be strapped in your car 3 ways to sundown
C) people would have their girls "marrying" girls
D) Boys would ask to go to the girls bathroom
E) add "Yield" or "Stop" signs to a RailRoad Crossing sign
F) Give idiots right to walk/dart in front of traffic and you slam on breaks:Right of Way
G) Cigarettes are really bad, but pot is "good." States would legalize it!
H) People would be rewarded for laziness:rent,energy assistance, a phone, etc.
I) A press that was pro-police would turn on them
J) Minorites and women encouraged
K) Hiring "the best" means #3 white loses to #28 black
L) A family jumps over the border, gets free tuition, housing, food stamps...
M) The term Reverend means something very, very different
N) People would pay $1 for a 5 cent candy bar and get less
O) Idiots would pay $1 for water, when it comes out of the tap for free!
P) Professors would teach children how to hate parents, authority
Q) Children would be "dumbed down" (Common Core)....
R) You would be an alcoholic if you blew 0.000000000001!
S) You had 30 "friends" but really 1-2, as the others were on this think called "social media."
T) Words took new meanings: gay, rainbow...
U) You din't know the very country you were in 15 years ago, and that was bad!
W) News anchors guffawed, joked and laughed through a newscast
X) A newscast was who puked on a street in Hollywood
Y) If the president said "party cloudy" and you said "partly sunny" you were a racist
Z) The Cubs still.....

No one answered this fools office phone in the middle of a business day on a Friday. This simpleton wants to tax the few family vacations that I take driving out of Illinois? This is the same asshole who let his son drive a state car while drunk. His son isn't the only one in that family that is a lush bucket.

Tax your drunk driving relatives first you misfit.

Instead of taxing our mileage, why not legalize marijuana and prostitution, and tax marijuana just like cigarettes and have red light districts for prostitution and tax prostitution like in the Netherlands . Illinois can make tons of money.
