VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's march to socialism.
GLENN: Oh, yes, another look into the wonderful world of socialism that we're diving further into every day. There's a drought in Australia, you know. Never fear, though. Socialists are here, and the solution is simple. Sometimes it's a final solution but that's a topic for another time. Homeowners will now be charged for each flush under a radical new toilet tax designed to help beat the drought. Oh, laugh now. The scheme would replace the current system which sees sewage charges based on a home's value, not its wastewater output. It would encourage people to reduce their sewage output by taking shorter showers, recycling washing machine water or connecting rainwater tanks to internal plumbing to reduce their charges. Hmmm. Would you believe the previous theory was from a professor? Yeah, forcing people to pay for their flushes. I don't think it's going to make them go to the bathroom any less, you know? If this policy works and people flush less, Australia's going to stink, literally. Some people may not go as far as, you know, not flushing their toilet because of the less sewage you produce, the less sewage rate you pay. I mean, you know, it's amazing how many times these socialist ideas work. For instance you know that skinny tax, you know, here in New York, trying to get everybody skinny because we're all too fat, so they tax everything that is bad for you. You know, they're taxing the fat, you know, the fast food restaurants and everything that has a lot of fat in it. I've got to tell you, here in New York it's working so well. I don't know the last time I've seen a fat -- no? No, I still see an awful lot of them. The pay as you go rate would provide financial savings for those who reduce their wastewater output. Another socialist program sold with a promise of saving you money and saving people. Not to be crude but, you know, are there tax exemptions for say, you know, somebody who's had one too many chalupas? You know what I'm saying? And doesn't this tax disproportionately hurt poor people? I mean, how can they afford to pay per flush? "Oh, Glenn, stop it. This is Australia. Stop with the fear mongering about socialism." Yeah, yeah. The last thing we should do is talk about socialism and how crazy it is in other places, you know, that way we would just turn a blind eye and they can sneak up and gobble us to death without even knowing. With a lot of the population just going, "What's wrong with socialism?" Let's not kid ourselves and turn a blind eye to where America is leaning, nationalized banks, nationalized healthcare, carbon tax, fat tax, all these taxes for the greater good. Makes it pretty clear what we're turning into.
Secondly, the pay per flush scheme is already in the U.S. "What?" This according to the professor quoted in the article: In places like the city of Bellaire, Texas, a virtual suburb of Houston, they do it and the system seems to work there. Really? Texas? If anybody's listening in Bellaire, Texas that has ever not flushed to save the Earth, I want you to call me now. The number's 888-727-BECK.
VOICE: More overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck Program.
