And MORE Rain

More money out of my pocket and into Martin O'Malley's, to fund his leftist schemes and plots and presidential ambitions.  More rain means more Rain Tax, doesn't it?

Oh?  You say it's supposed to go toward environmental improvements?  Mmmm.  Ever notice when politicians say "We need more money for teachers and firemen and to pretty up the Chesapeake" it never seems to get to teachers, or firemen, and the Bay never seems to get any better?  But some guy in a wood paneled office somewhere gets another $1200 suit or three.

I wonder if I harvested rain that fell on my roof and used it for garden irrigation and the lawn if that could get me a tax credit?  At least this isn't like some other states where it is illegal to have a rain catchment.

from what i understand (and this may vary based on county) if you have rain barrels set up you should be able to avoid the tax.

we've got one on each corner of the house, so i'm hoping that's enough. :\

Better tell someone. I bet the spy satellites assessing the tax can't tell.

i wonder who we'd tell, though?
