A good reason to collect and store the water that would otherwise runoff your property and into the drains. Then you can use it to water your garden/yard when it's needed.

the government itself is immune to this tax
lol of course they are immune, who would they pay it to... themselves?

So, due to the EPA ordering the state of Maryland to reduce nitrogen levels by 22% in Chesapeake Bay, the wonderfully socialistic government of the state passed a 'Rain Tax' that goes into effect on July 1st and naturally, the government itself is immune to this tax.
When are people going to stand up for themselves? Taxes such as this one are the very reason the colonies revolted against the English crown, and yet here we are, dealing with it all over again and allowing it to occur.
I propose a new tax, how about the people impose a tax on the government for every lie that is proven to be such, that is told by the government? We could give it a nice name like 'The forked-tongue tax', or 'The B.S. tax".
If the government is so concerned with the ecological effect that runoff water is having on the environment, why then are THEY immune to the tax?
It took every ounce of self-control that I possess to write this while maintaining some form of decorum, Read the article and judge for yourselves.
