the Doylestown chinchillas?

I spoke too soon.  Maybe I should have read the Monday op/eds before posting that. 

Folks have been debating tax policies and rates for millenia at this point.  Yet today someone came up with an argument against taxes unique in the whole history of tax debates. The following snippet comes from Slow down on a shale tax:
After the Marcellus tax, they will not be able to help themselves and will be emboldened to impose a new levy on all oil and gas production, then high-sulfur coal destined for China, then Lake Erie perch, then Doylestown chinchillas, and who knows where it will stop?
The slippy slopes of Doylestown chinchillas?  I thought for a moment there was something special about Doylestown chinchillas, sort of like the Memphis ducks or something... but no. or at least Mr. Google seems as confused as I am.  Whatever your position is, there has to be a higher level to debate this? I realize it may be too much to expect the public discourse to focus on the arc elasticity of cumulative gas production with respect to a change in a severance tax (which actually is the most important thing impacting whether we should tax and at what rate), but have we strayed so far from what the audiences at the Lincoln Douglas debates heard?

If they can tax may labor at something approaching 30%, I don't see why I should cry for taxing some thing pulled out of the ground. Also, I liked the name "Sylvan Energy." Because natural gas grows on trees.

On the plus side, nobody is arguing that the people of Kansas should be able to decide if they want slaves or not.

Some good point written.
Work of many people on this issue of plastic, there are several plastic materials recycling organic-based view. In February, for example, Imperial College London and bioceramic drug polymer biodegradable plastic from sugar derived from the decay of lignocellulosic biomass. There is also an existing plant more corn starch and plastics based on paper, including household goods and food packaging, bioplastics toys, plastic dynamic Cereplast. Metabolix also several lines of plastic products from corn, in cooperation with partner companies.

This post very informative I discover, many thanks. Chinchilla industry not only make great fur tonnage but superior pets, pest control and high in protein also. Chillacorp also several lines of bioengineering guard chinchilla breeds, with synergy with NuclearMoose for extra large. Cirque de Soliel development yields military application when sufficient leafy greens get.

I think chinchilla must be some code word for spam... that or maybe it really is code for something? Collins there might be passing some secret message to someone for all I can tell the purpose was of that. The most spam this blog usually gets is from folks in India who are being paid to hype online bingo sites. No joke.

I don't know what Collins wants, but I wouldn't open that URL unless I was on the computer at the library.

Bram should teach English composition to robots.

Well there was a post that mentioned "Plastics" in the title a few posts down, but I don't know why the spambot hit you way up here.
