According the latest Gallup Poll, 46% of Americans claim this current bunch of Democrats are too liberal. Which is up seven points since the poll was taken last year. Now, here's the scary part of the poll. Eight percent of those polled claim the Democrats are too conservative. I happen to think that Obama himself may have been part of the eight percent that were polled.
Something tells me this time next year when the poll is increase, there will be another seven point jump citing that Democrats are too liberal--if of course we still have free speech left to call them the L word.
Well, we are wrapping up month six. We are half way through the year. So far I have paid over $8,700 in taxes this year. This is about $1,300 less than what I predicted when I set out tracking every penny I paid in taxes.
I think the $8700 is misleading. Like I said yesterday, Obama came to office and created an illusion that you were getting a tax cut. Millions of Americans are going to be upset in February when they discover they owe the IRS lots of money. Gee thanks Obama. You screw up everything you touch. It's no wonder your mommy and daddy ran and gave you to a grandma you would one day throw under the bus. They couldn't afford the destruction you caused around your house as a child, and Americans can't afford the destruction you are causing to our country.
Honestly, if Obama hadn't messed around with withholding, this number would be closer to $10,000 in taxes paid to date. Either way, it's a lot of money that was stolen from me.
Cap and trade in the new climate bill upsets me as much as any bill in the history of our country. Cap and trade is just insulting to my intelligence and it should be insulting to your intelligence too; however, years of federal influence in the nation’s schools have produced generations of Americans who don’t think beyond what they are told. Remember Miss South Carolina Teen 2007, Caitlin Upton? This is a prime example of what the public schools have developed. I believe it is the mission of the federal government to use the public school systems to keep most Americans fat and stupid.
Every night, I step outside to enjoy my green utopia of watermelons, tomatoes, corn, sunflowers, carrots, and zucchini in my garden. I watch my apple and peach trees grow producing food to nourish our bodies. I see my other trees growing to produce cooling shade. My roses are in full bloom adding color to the yard. All of this is only capable thanks to carbon dioxide.
In 2009, Americans have allowed their elected leaders to label this miraculous gas, which is less than 4% of the total greenhouse gasses (water vapor makes up more than 90% of the greenhouse gasses), to be labeled dangerous. Without carbon dioxide, there is not life on earth. Fruits and vegetables fail to grow without CO2. Without the CO2 vegetation dies, and oxygen isn’t replenished in the world. How stupid have Americans become to fall for the greatest single hoax the world has ever seen—a hoax designed to redistribute the world’s power, tax people into poverty, and destroy America’s industrial power?
I have seen many hoaxes in my time, but this is the single greatest hoax I have seen pull off. It’s a liberty killer, and Americans are too busy worried about the Michael Jackson mystery or whether or not the Twilight stars are dating to look at the science driving the politics. They want to feel good that they saved a polar bear. The problem is the polar bears were never in jeopardy. Polar Bear populations have grown 500% since the 1950s. They politicians lie to us so they can consume power and Americans don’t want to feel guilty about a bear they aren’t willing to invest any research in.
Ice grows and ice recedes. It’s natural. It’s why the Titanic sank. A large chunk of ice fell off and floated off into the ocean until it was a tiny ice cube. Antarctica used to be a tropical paradise which the penguins adapted to in time according to The March of the Penguins. Now it’s a huge chunk of ice. Now Al Gore uses it to sell his rhetoric, but ice has been breaking off into chunks into the ocean for thousands of years before Gore’s lies.
It’s sad that there are Americans who believe carbon dioxide is dangerous. Do they understand what the Krebs Cycle is? It’s natural. It isn’t dangerous. If you have fallen for this environmental rhetoric, you are a fool. Carbon dioxide provides so much good for our planet. It’s needed. It’s required. You are a moron if you believe it’s dangerous. Remember they say a fool and his money are soon parted. Unfortunately a small amount of fools will be responsible for parting a lot of people with their money, their jobs, and the quality of life.
I am angry. I am angry that there are people in the government that believe the American people are so stupid they will continue to fall for bad science—despite records showing the earth is cooling, the extended period of no solar activity, increased ice at the caps, more polar bears, and longer, colder winters.
Carbon dioxide isn’t dangerous. Stupidity is dangerous.
Carbon dioxide isn’t dangerous. Nancy Pelosi is dangerous.
Carbon dioxide isn’t dangerous. Cap and trade is dangerous.
Carbon dioxide isn’t dangerous. Barack Obama is dangerous and is bought and paid for by companies pushing green energy like General Electric who stand to make huge profits are dangerous.
Carbon dioxide isn’t dangerous. Those people who criticized George W. Bush association Halliburton and are too blind to see Barack Obama is bought by green companies like General Electric are dangerous. (Please explain to me why Bush was evil for his Halliburton association while ignoring Obama’s Wall Street friends.
Carbon dioxide isn’t dangerous. The people who blame the United States for a global warming problem that doesn’t exist while excusing China for the pollution they produce are dangerous.
Carbon dioxide isn’t dangerous. Politicians are dangerous.
Carbon dioxide isn’t dangerous. Bullies who push politicians who see past the lies of global warming are dangerous.
Alex Jones reported yesterday the eight Republican who voted for cap and trade had until July 2, 2009, to change their votes. This is not the case. Cap and trade was officially passed in the House and will now move on into the Senate.
Jones spoke with Congressman Ron Paul about the climate bill. Apparently many Democrats were forced to vote for it in fear. Paul said many of them know the consequences ahead coming from cap and trade.
Here’s Ron Paul’s recent blog on cap and trade:
In my last column, I joked that with public spending out of control and the piling on of the international bailout bill, economic collapse seems to be the goal of Congress. It is getting harder to joke about such a thing however, as the non-partisan General Accounting Office (GAO) has estimated that the administration’s health care plan would actually cost over a trillion dollars. This reality check may have given us a temporary reprieve on this particular disastrous policy, however an equally disastrous energy policy reared its ugly head on Capitol Hill last week.
The Cap and Trade Bill HR 2454 was voted on last Friday. Proponents claim this bill will help the environment, but what it really does is put another nail in the economy’s coffin. The idea is to establish a national level of carbon dioxide emissions, and sell pollution permits to industry as the Catholic Church used to sell indulgences to sinners. HR 2454 also gives federal bureaucrats new power to regulate a wide variety of household appliances, such as light bulbs and refrigerators, and further distorts the market by providing more of your tax money to auto companies.
The administration has pointed to Spain as a shining example of this type of progressive energy policy. Spain has been massively diverting capital from the private sector into politically favored environmental projects for the better part of a decade, and many in Washington apparently like what they see. However, under no circumstances should anyone serious about economic recovery emulate an economy that is now approaching 20 percent unemployment, where every green job created, eliminated 2.2 real jobs and cost around $800,000 each!
The real inconvenient truth is that the cost of government regulations, taxes, fees, red tape and bureaucracy is a considerable expense that has to be considered when companies decide where to do business and how many people they can afford to hire. Increasing governmental burden directly causes capital flight and job losses, as Spain has learned. In this global economy it is easy enough for businesses to relocate to countries that are more politically friendly to economic growth. If our government continues to kick the economy while it is down, it will be a long time before it gets back up. In fact, jobs are much more likely to go overseas, compounding our problems.
And for what? Contrary to claims repeated over and over, there is no consensus in the scientific community that global warming is getting worse or that it is manmade. In fact over 30,000 scientists signed a petition recently directly disputing the claims on which this policy is based. Legitimate environmental claims should instead be directed towards the public sector. The government, especially the military, is the most serious polluter in the country, and is exempt from most EPA regulations. Meanwhile Washington bureaucrats have classified the very air we exhale as a pollutant and have gone unchallenged in this incredible assertion. The logical consequence is that there will come a time when we will have to buy a government permit just to emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere from our own lungs!
The events on Capitol Hill last week just demonstrate Washington’s audacity in manufacturing problems just so they can expand government power to solve them.
Last week, French President Nicolas Sarkozy cited his disgust of how Middle Eastern women are expected to cover up, and moved to pass a law protecting women from this cruel practice. As expected, terrorists in the Middle East and Northern Africa weren’t happy with Sarkozy’s comments. The Northern Africa wing of those lovely people known as Al Qaeda are demanding Sarkozy let it go or France will pay for his comments and actions.
"We will take revenge for the honor of our daughters and sisters against France and against its interests by every means at our disposal."
”We call upon all Muslims to confront this hostility with greater hostility, and to counter France's efforts to divide male and female believers from their faith with a greater effort ... (by) adherence to the teachings of their Islamic sharia," said Abdul Wadud.
May I just state the obvious, how is anyone honored when they are forced to hide? Something tells me Sarkozy isn’t going to back down. He seems different than generations of French wusses that we have seen in the past. I stand behind France!
Just when you thought the cast of characters in American politics couldn’t get any worse, the Minnesota Supreme Court allowed Al Franken to steal the election from Norm Coleman. The Court ruled today that Franken, former unfunny Saturday Night Live boob, will be seated as the junior Senator from Minnesota. There is nothing funny about this. It’s a sad day for Minnesota and the country as we watch this cheater, Al Franken, now take office.
Obama's Gay Champion Promise Quickly Put to the Test: Iraq Veteran Faces Court Marshal for Admitting He is Gay
Yesterday, Obama stood in front of gay Americans promising to be a champion of homosexuality. Gay Americans should look to the military hearings in Syracuse, New York today to see just how much of a champion Obama will be.
Dan Choi violated the military’s don’t ask don’t tell policy. He came out of the military wall locker (closet) when he was interviewed with the Army Times in March. Choi, a West Point graduate, wrote Obama begging him to change the policy. Obama promised during the campaign that he would, but has done little towards voicing his desire for change in any of the nation’s policies towards homosexuals. To the best of my research, it looks like Obama hasn’t responded to Choi. Remember what I said, yesterday’s words to homosexuals were just words—soon to be broken promises. More than 250 gay and lesbians have been discharged since Obama has taken office, and Obama has done little to prevent this from happening.
Choi has honorably served in Iraq. He was the honorary grand marshal in the recent San Francisco Pride Parade.
The question here is if Obama will live up to his promises and prevent this officer from being court marshaled or if yesterday’s promises will quickly be broken. I pick the latter. You must realize homosexuality is a huge sin in the Muslim religion, which many people feel guides Obama. I think this is what’s driving Obama running from gay issues with a few rhetorical words here and there showing pseudo support.
The FDA Wants to Babysit You During Your Headaches and Flu: Tylenol is the Obama Administration's Product of the Day to Demonize
Is there any convenience in life that the government isn’t willing to demonize? From gasses necessary to support life on earth to light bulbs to Cherrios and now over-the-counter medications, there isn’t anything the Obama administration won’t demonize, and this includes freedom loving Americans.
Today the attack is on Tylenol. The government, who needs you alive to steal more taxes from you, feels they aren’t doing their job as the babysitter of the people. Apparently the warning label they forced Tylenol and other products containing acetaminophen isn’t being read by enough people. Tylenol has moved up in rankings as Public Enemy Number One for the day.
The FDA is looking at pulling acetaminophen off the shelves because they claim it causes liver damage because people are abusing Tylenol. Isn’t this something! They keep cigarettes on the shelves knowing there could be health risks associated with smoking including cancer, lung damage, and heart disease, but they continue to allow cigarettes because they collect a mass of taxes from smoking. However, Tylenol isn’t taxed so their possible solution is to pull it off the shelves because they don’t believe Americans can handle following the dosage guidelines. Does anyone else see the hypocrisy in this? (By the way, I am not advocating pulling cigarettes off the shelf.)
If the government could tax acetaminophen, this wouldn’t be an issue. They would debate in Congress how to prevent acetaminophen abuse while creating big government education programs, but if it was taxable, they would never pull it off the shelf.
The FDA says consumers should never take more than 4 grams a day. They argue that when consumers mix Tylenol with products like NyQuil or Theraflu, consumers are at risk of overdosing. It’s more likely the FDA will pull NyQuil and Theraflu off the shelves, which means the government is once again picking winners and losers. I still maintain if they were taxing at the level they tax tobacco, this wouldn’t even be news.
Obama’s giving me a huge headache. I’m ready to down a whole bottle of Tylenol! Someone please send the FDA to save me.
for prostitution. Some of the facts not being reported in the major
media outlets include that the child is being raised by a homosexual
couple - the father is homosexual. It seems that major media outlets
are afraid that if they report this fact it may hurt the homosexual
adoption push by liberals. Also not reported is that the five-year-old
boy being offered up for prostitution is black. Again the major media
outlets are afraid that this fact could hurt the alliance between gays
and blacks as being fellow victims of white, straight oppression. And
one final fact, the father admitted on an internet chat room that he has
been molesting the child on an ongoing basis.
Did I mention the the father is a director at Duke University? Seems
they don't have any problem defaming a group of white students on false
accusations of a black prostitute, but keep a low profile when the
disgusting perpetrator is a faculty member sodomite and the victim is
his adopted black son.
Rasmussen just released their Presidential Approval Index. According to the index, 31% of Americans strongly approve of Obama’s job performance. 33% Americans strongly disapprove of Obama’s job performance. This is the first time Obama has received a negative number since they began polling his job performance. People must be waking up to Obama’s soft tyranny. I wonder what his next move is. Will it be to silence his critics who expose the truth the news media won’t report about his policies? That’s my guess.
I have a feeling the White House is angry today. The wrath of Obama and his cronies like Rahm Emanuel is coming.
Isn’t it sad that on Independence week, our president has taken the side of some of the most vile violators of human rights and liberty on the planet. After the overthrow of the leader of Honduras, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton continue to support Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, and Daniel Ortega and their views towards the situation in Honduras. Obama supports a man in Honduras who was in violation with the Honduras Constitution. Isn't this irony? I find it such irony that during the week of Independence Day, Obama shows his true colors for the world to see. Obama is not a champion of freedom, human rights, and liberty. You best be taking notes.
Just like Obama failed to speak up within a reasonable time for the students in Iran, just a few days later we see Obama supporting the wrong side once again. And once again, Obama doesn’t support freedom.
Congress needs to be paying attention to these numbers as well, as they are steamrolling Obama's agenda.
Monday, June 29, 2009
Well, I am nearly half way through this depressing reality of recording every penny lost to taxes for this year. In two days, we begin the second half of the year.
So far, I think the most alarming reality is the sales tax. It's just shy of $2000 for the year. The biggest surprise is the federal taxes withheld. I know I am going to owe if I don't make the necessary adjustments thanks to Obama's numbers game. We discussed earlier how millions of Americans aren't getting refunds in February, but they will find out they owe thanks to Obama's pretend tax cut.
Obama doesn't want to cut your taxes. In fact, I pointed out earlier today that just the Democrat's new tax on gasoline in the climate bill proves Obama is full of crap when he says cap and trade will cost you about a postage stamp a day. So I have decided that in 2012, if the Senate passes cap and trade, I am going to record each penny once again to prove to Americans what the climate bill costs them. I am looking forward to December 31st, as I am tired of collecting receipts each day.
Here's tonight's totals:
As you know, we will soon say good by to Thomas Edison's light bulb. Come the first of the year, Americans will be forced to paying nearly six times as much for a light bulb they say is environmentally friendlier--at least until you read the warnings about breaking the bulb.
So as Kim Jong Il plans his Independence Day attack on Hawaii, Obama revisits the light bulb for something to talk about.
"I know light bulbs may not seem sexy, but this simple action holds enormous promise because seven percent of all the energy consumed in America is used to light our homes and businesses," Obama stated.
Apparently he doesn't feel like the Democrat's plan to rid the United States of the traditional light bulb goes far enough. (Something tells me Obama's buddy Jeffrey Immelt, CEO of GE, has plans to position himself to profit from whatever Obama is up to.) Obama announced he is spending $346 million for a light bulb even more efficient than the mercury vapor bulbs which will be mandated after this year.
Listen up, the next part of Obama's speech is telling. There are going to be jobs lost because of Obama's Tesla Tinkertoy kit. Obama plans on closing down 14 coal-fired power plants. What's he going to replace them with? Windmills? How funny. You people in West Virginia and other coal are going to feel the pain of Obama's policies. You will soon account for the next people in the unemployment lines. I have been to West Virginia, and jobs aren't abundant in many of the towns where coal mining powers the country. Obama is coming after you! You better get calling Robert Byrd and tell him he better vote for your jobs and not Obama's schemes.
Obama announced his new light bulb would save America $4 billion per year. Isn't he amazing! North Korea is planning an attack on the United States and the president is talking light bulbs! Aren't you loving the change? We may be a pile of ashes, but Obama will be as important in light bulb history as Edison himself.
Earlier this month, Obama announced his plans for better refrigerators and air conditioners. Did we elect a president or the Maytag Repairman?
Now when you watch the video, Obama actually handles the situation quite well. Which almost never happens without the help of a teleprompter. Makes you wonder if this was staged and the teleprompter got Obama through another laughable moment. This news clip will probably be more examined than the realities of cap and trade.
What a gay time at the White House today! Obama and his teleprompter...
Jesse Jackson Gets More Camera Time After Michael Jackson's Death: Begs Michael Jackson Fans Not to Commit Suicide
This just goes to show that you can always count on Jesse Jackson to find the camera in moments like these. In fact, he seems to be competing against Al Sharpton to get camera time since Jackson's death. There should be a national scoreboard at times like these keeping track of the minutes logged in front of the camera for these two disgraceful individuals.
It's moments like these that Erich 'Mancow' Muller likes to revisit the moments in Memphis after Doctor Martin Luther King's death in which Jackson who ran from the scene went back to the scene and rubbed himself in King's blood and then posted himself in front of the camera to take advantage of the moment. Not much has changed in 41 years.
Here’s that commercial:
Racing Against Cancer -- powered by http://www.livestrong.com
Americans should be angry after the manifestation on Capitol Hill during the climate debate last Friday. In a single afternoon, if you were paying attention, you observed the possible death of American freedoms occur because of the words carbon dioxide, a naturally occurring gas required to sustain life on earth. If the Senate continues with this madness and passes the cap and trade bill, it will be the final knife in the back of our Constitution and the American way of life.
There was a scene I was hoping would occur in the chambered halls of Congress on Friday. It would have clearly pointed out how far to hell Congress has directed this country through their belief in global warming environmentalism. If John Boehner wanted to buy time in Congress and slowed this vote down, all he had to do was start throwing mercury vapor light bulbs throughout the halls of the Capitol. The Democrats could have been beaten by their own environmentalism silliness.
As you know, at the end of this year, traditional light bulbs will be outlawed in the United States. They are considered inefficient—a danger to the earth’s fragile environment. The earth has survived millions of years of volcanic activity and the poisonous gasses produced, and the democrats consider the simple light bulb as one of the ultimate enemies of mankind. I laugh, but I also see where we can easily win this debate and show how dangerous the Democrats silliness is. You see, in replacing the light bulb with the new generation of florescent bulbs that cost five times as much as the traditional bulb, you know have a legal environmental weapon easily accessible at your fingertips.
The new light bulbs contain mercury. They are an environmental nightmare when broken. If you break one of these light bulbs, you are to open the windows to allow the mercury fumes to escape, leave the room, and call a hazardous materials team with Environmental Protection Agency qualification to clean up your light bulb.
You figure, you get a bunch of Congressmen in one room who are content on reading the bill before voting on it, these light bulbs might be the answer to slow environmental wackos like Nancy Pelosi from stealing more rights from Americans by forcing fast votes on legislation that still have fresh ink and crisp new pages. Throw them like grenades and thrown them fast—watch the fun begin as they clear Congress out to clean up the environmental mess. I figure this is all we really have at this point to prevent Democrats from stealing our rights. You can beat Democrats by using their own environmental stupidity against them. I suggest Republicans start stocking up on light bulbs containing mercury.
Unfortunately, this didn’t happen and we are one step closer to cap and trade and the destruction of freedom.
Rudy Clay, the mayor of Gary, Indiana, thinks Michael Jackson’s death is good for Gary. He is looking at Jackson’s death to get people to visit Gary. Seriously, has anyone been to Gary lately? It’s scary—very scary.
Clay has plans to oversee the Jackson Five museum to bring people to Gary. He is also lobbying the family to burry Jackson in his boyhood home, Gary. Clay obviously sees what Graceland has done for Memphis and he hopes people will have the same enthusiasm for his town. There is just one problem. Michael Jackson got as far as away from Gary as he could when he moved to California to escape scary Gary. Everyone is looking to profit from his death right now.
I am telling you, Jackson is the next Elvis. I expect to see his image all over the corner of the local grocery store parking lot next to the guy selling pocket rocket motor scooters.
Obama's Postage Stamp Lie: Cap and Trade Gasoline Tax More than Doubles Missouri's Current Gas Taxes
Cap and Trade will add a 77 cent tax for a gallon of gasoline. What’s the size of your tank, 13 gallons? Your cost at the pump was just raised by over $10. Remember, Obama said in his radio address this past weekend that the climate bill was only going to cost you a postage stamp a day in additional costs. Once again, we see Obama isn’t very good at math. Obama's comparison that cap and trade will cost Americans the equivalent of a postage stamp a day means that it should cost Americans no more than just over $160 a year. This is easy to show Obama's lie by doing simple math.
The average person driving to work five days a week fills their tank up every seven to ten days. Let’s say you fill your tank up once a week with your 13 gallon tank. The cost to you is $1.43 a day. If you fill your tank up ever ten days, that’s a dollar a day. That means without any consideration to any other energy or products, cap and trade is already costing you an additional $365 to $521.95 a year. Considering your electricity, natural gas, and other energy costs are promised to rise as well, it’s so easy to make the case Obama is full of crap with his postage stamp promise.
Now, what happens when you add additional costs to shipping products to stores? The cost of shipping goes up, they prices of the products go up as well. Unless our government plans on charging $10 for a postage stamp, Obama is lying!

MOTION TO RECONSIDER
A motion to reconsider is a parliamentary practice that gives the House (or Senate) one opportunity to review its action on a motion, amendment, or measure.
Motions to reconsider are routinely laid on the table — or killed. If a motion to reconsider is adopted, it requires a vote be held again on whatever the House has voted to reconsider. Only Members who voted on the winning side may move to reconsider a vote. Members have been known to change their votes at the last minute in order to be eligible to offer the motion.
If the original vote on a question is close, enough members might be persuaded to change their position, or absent members could come to the floor, vote to reconsider, then reverse the outcome of the original vote.
Typically, however, after announcing the result of a vote, the Speaker states that, “without objection, a motion to reconsider is laid on the table.” This uses up the one opportunity to reconsider, and makes the result of the vote final.
LAY ON THE TABLE
A motion to lay on the table a bill, resolution, amendment, point of order, appeal or another motion disposes of the question immediately and finally and adversely — it kills it without a direct vote on the substance of the question. A motion to table is not debatable and is adopted by unanimous consent — without objection — or by majority vote. It is a “highly privileged motion” — that is, in the order in which motions are given priority in the House, only a motion to adjourn has higher precedence than a motion to table a measure.
Good Luck Selling Your Home of the Senate Passes Cap and Trade: Bill Requires EPA to Inspect Your Home and Assign It an Energy Efficiency Rating
If the Senate passes cap and trade, say goodbye to more of your private property rights. One of the provisions in the cap and trade bill will allow the government to oversee the sales process of your home.
When you place your house on the market, the federal government will send a bureaucrat from the Environmental Protection Agency to give your house an energy efficiency rating. If your house doesn’t comply with the government standard, you will be required to bring your house up to standard before you can sell it. If your windows aren’t efficient, the government will make you replace them. If your air conditioning isn’t one of these new air conditioners that are not capable of keeping your house cool in the summer while using the minimal amount of electricity the government will decide upon, you will have to replace it. It doesn’t matter if these things are in perfect running order and they are what the purchaser wants. If the government doesn’t approve, you will have to replace these items before you sell them. Freedom continues to die in the United States.
Missouri Representative Jim Guest is speaking at the Fair Tax Tea Party on Independence Day. For those of you unfamiliar with Representative Guest, he has been instrumental in speaking up for states’ rights guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. Representatives like Guest will be important in battling the federal government, especially after the California zoning laws have been nationally adopted by the US House of Representatives in the climate/cap and trade bill.
Guest is also the founder of the 1776 Initiative and Coalition to help promote the state sovereignty initiatives across the country.
The tea party takes place Saturday afternoon and will be adjacent to the US Post Office on Chestnut Expressway.

If Global Warming is as Dire as They Say, Why Is Cap and Trade Being Put off Three Years After They Pass It?
If the Democrats are so sure cap and trade will save the planet then why doesn’t the regulations take effect until 2012? Isn’t our planet important enough to start this program as soon as the Senate passes the bill? Surely the Democrats aren’t haven’t put this off this bill to save Barack Obama’s reelection chances, have they?
If you want to know the reality of this bill, the magic number in figuring out this isn’t good for our country is to look at the year the bill is finally implemented. We are told constantly from politicians with an environmental agenda that the time is now. If the time is now, they why put it off three years? If they force Americans to follow this bill in 2009 or 2010, Obama has no chance of being elected. Why?
Because the bill is going to drive up energy costs. Electricity cost will rise up to 90%. Gasoline costs will rise 58%. This is all going to trickle down as it costs more to run the big machines farmers use to harvest corn, soy beans, and other crops. This obviously is going to drive up food costs. If the Democrats allowed this to happen before 2012, they destroy Obama’s chances of reelection.
Once again, we see the green movement isn’t about saving the earth. It’s about taxes, and cap and trade is one of the largest tax increases in American history, and it will finish destroying the economy, but let’s put it on hold for a few years so we can get Barack reelected. If the earth is in such dire consequences, why are we putting it off three years? This shouldn’t be too hard to figure out.
Energy Refund Program For Low Income Consumers: The Redistribution Program in Wealth in Cap and Trade
Cap and trade is redistribution of wealth. In the bill passed by the house Friday night is the Energy Refund Program for Low Income Consumers program. This program pays low income families with utility bills. The program is to offset the lost purchasing power due to cap and trade. In other words, the government has created a program within the program to handle the job losses the climate bill will bring to our country. It understands that more Americans will become lower class thanks to higher energy costs and it creates a safety net for these Americans. Do you understand this? Let me say it again, the fact this program exists in the cap and trade legislation shows that our representatives are fully aware of the coming higher energy costs and the job losses resulting from cap and trade.
So our government has planned to rob from American industry because they produce a natural gas essential for plant growth on earth, and they will give a percentage of their stolen money to the poor. Unbelievable!
The EPA will run the program and the EPA administrator will formulate and run the program. Low income Americans will be paid the maximum of the IRS’s maximum tax energy credit. It will be paid out in 12 monthly payments rounded to the nearest dollar amount and direct deposited into the accounts of low income Americans.
The real problem is once out Congress runs off all the factories and the great American industrial power is dead, where are they going to get the money to pay out the Energy Refund Program for Low Income Consumers? There will be no money eventually because this bill will finish off American industry.
Remember this is the perfect event to let Nancy Pelosi and Congress know how you feel about them raping the country with their newest cap and trade taxes which will cost all Americans through higher energy prices which will also lead to higher cost of goods. Come out and be heard, and be prepared for the insults from libs like Anderson Cooper.

So what are the California zoning laws? They are a set of laws that define where you can build and how it is to be built, and considering California's earthquake building laws are part of the code, this is going to drive up construction costs.
The California zoning laws will force states to reconsider the transportation plans including where they can build state highways and local roads. States will be forced to adopt California's congestion management laws.
California house building laws will be forced upon the other 49 states as well. Remember California is debating outlawing colors like black because they believe the color black encourages global warming. I wrote earlier this year about how they are looking to require people to paint roofs white in order to cut down on global warming. California's silliness will drive up the costs of new homes.
There are endless pages of zoning laws which includes zoning fees that will be forced upon the other 49 states. From where they can build their hospitals to making it nearly impossible to build new power plants--let me say that again--making it nearly impossible to build new power plants--the federal government is violating the Tenth Amendment by forcing California's laws on the other 49 states.
The state of California has a Web site with all their zoning laws. Obviously there are thousands of pages of zoning laws, and I doubt one Congressman read more than five or six pages of these laws. Anyone with any common sense should understand the messes and the failure that is California. One failure in particular should concern all Americans. California's zoning laws have made in nearly impossible to build new power plants, and these laws have helped the environmentalist prevent new power plants from being built. California's grid is stressed from the needs of the nation's largest state. If cap and trade passes the Senate, these zoning laws will help push up energy costs even higher than projected. Remember, this wasn't originally in the bill and was thrown in at the last minute. Throw out the projections you heard about paying $2,000 or more a year for your energy costs. Without new power plants, prices will go up based on supply and demand, and I think this is the real reason Congress allowed these zoning laws to be included in the bill.
Obama is such a nice guy, right? I mean after all, he took the office and almost immediately you were taking more money home in your paycheck (that is if you managed to keep your job after Obama began implementing programs to destroy jobs). Most Americans were fooled into believing they got an Obama tax cut--nothing could be farther from the truth.
In a recent conversation in an HR department somewhere in Springfield, MO. A group of employees gathered upset because they were fooled into thinking at first the $14 a pay period held out of their checks for federal taxes was part of a massive tax cut geared to stimulate the economy. It took them over four months to realize while their withholding amounts changed, the tax tables didn't. They were looking at huge tax payments at the end of the year. In fact, this little trickery on the part of Barack Obama may further hurt the economy.
Come February, there are going to be far more Americans owing the IRS money than receiving refunds, which is what each employee in this gathering at HR discovered. How do you think that's going to help the economy next year when people who the IRS thousands because Obama played with the withholding rates to give the illusion of a tax cut but he didn't actually lower the tax tables. What a mess the Obama administration continues to be.
If Americans haven't woken up yet, they will come February when they owe the IRS money thanks to Barack Obama.

We spoke today of two businesses--both licensed franchises (just because you see a big name on the door doesn't mean it's a big business.) Most franchises are small businesses, whether its your local McDonald's, Jimmy Johns sandwich store, or whatever it may be. They are small businessman who have made an investment and taken a risk to sell an established product. Both the owners of these small businesses are concerned cap and trade could force them out of business. When you start looking at the reality of it, it's easy to see how they will fall victim.
One of the local sandwich shops noted how tight things are currently because their energy costs have risen so high. Most people don't realize the costs of electricity it takes to run an oven and the rest of the equipment for 16-18 hours in a restaurant. Energy costs are a large part of the overheard in a little sandwich shop, in fact the monthly utility bill runs between $1300 and $1500. If margins are already tight for this small businessman, what do you suppose will happen in a couple years once the cap and trade energy bill goes into effect. This small business owner could see their electricity bill raise three times to five times what they pay now.
This small business owner has one option if they are going to stay in business--raise prices. The $5 foot long just became the $15 or $20 foot long. Even that may not save him because across the board consumers are getting hit with the increases in everything they purchase for this very reason, and they have to deal with higher energy costs in their own homes.
The other business we talked about pays around $2000 a month in energy costs. It's a good size retail store who have already made cuts to keep that cost lower. If they are forced to make too many more cuts many of the customer comforts they provide will have to be eliminated.
This is why the Senate must defeat the evil that the House of Representatives passed yesterday. Many of these small-business owners don't have much room for their energy costs to skyrocket, which cap and trade ensures. I know I will be calling Claire McCaskill and Kit Bond and remind them Missourians chose McCain, and Missourians don't want to be forced into California zoning laws, which the cap and trade bill includes, and higher energy costs.
I know it's a simple quote, but after yesterday I have to ask how much longer are Americans going to put up with the arrogance of Congress, while they continually avoid the will of the people, before they tear down the walls of Congress?

Thank You to the 44 Democrats Who Voted Against Cap and Trade: And for the Eight Republicans Who Voted For It...
These eight Republicans just bought themselves a ticket back home to stay in 2010. They failed to listen to the thousands of phone calls coming into their offices begging them not to kill America with a yes vote, but they forgot they are supposed to represent the people of their district. To make matters even worse, they voted to adopt California zoning laws and force them on the other 49 states. Who wants their state ran like California after seeing the past few months? There is a reason nothing gets done in California anymore, and part of that reason has to do with these zoning laws.
Let's take a look at the eight Republican Congressmen who just bought themselves a one-way ticket back home to their district.
Mary Bono Mack (R-CA)
Mike Castle (R-DE)
Mark Kirk (R-IL)
Leonard Lance (R-NJ)
Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ)
John McHugh (R-NJ)
Dave Reichert (R-WA)
Rep. Chris Smith (NJ)
Remember these names. Remember what they did to your country on June 26, 2009. I don't care if the person running again them as a D behind their names--you need to clean house and make sure these eight traitors are not reelected--providing you can afford to drive your car to the polls once these changes occur. These are not Republicans--they are Benedict Arnolds not just to their party but to their country.
Some Congressman Changed Their Cap and Trade Votes in Exchange For Something Nice to be Said About Them: The Revolution is About to Begin
Americans are about to get a real lesson about the realities of the damage this Democratic president and Congress. It will hit them hardest in the costs of their goods and increased energy costs, but there is another reality.
If I were an American factory owner who has served the United States by providing jobs for the economy, I would think twice tonight about how Congress just slapped me in the face. If Congress thinks they are going to regulate the amount I produce based on limits it forces me to comply with, then I would be on my way to closing the doors of the factory, put a picture of me on the board giving Pelosi, Reid, and Obama the bird while explaining why I have chosen this path, and move my factory overseas where I don't have a government bureaucrat monitoring my energy use and carbon out put. In other words I don't blame one factory owner for going Galt and moving their American jobs overseas after what Pelosi oversaw tonight.
Our government wasn't set up to monitor businesses with these cap and trade measures. Pelosi is way out of line, but this is now reality and Americans better remember what finished off American industry and forced these companies to relocate when the unemployment lines lengthen once cap and trade kicks in.
I am sickened by what I saw in Congress today. It shows the arrogance of so many in Congress who have stopped representing the people and now represent themselves and Nancy Pelosi. Mark Levin had one Congressman come on and claim some Congressmen were changing their votes providing another bigger name would go in front of Congress and say some nice things about them. Remember who these Congressmen are that wanted something nice said about them in Congress, and be sure you say nothing nice about Congressmen who just raised your energy bills, robbed Americans of jobs, and continued to destroy the economy so someone could say something nice about them. I am sick. I don't even know if I want to be a part of this great experiment anymore since it has now turned into a train wreck. I want off the train before in crashes hard. I know now that my phone calls to Congress, my letters to Senators, and the words I place on this blog mean nothing to the arrogant assholes that sit in Congress pretending they represent the people. Call me when the revolution begins. I will do my part to see the vision of Thomas Jefferson is restored.
I am sad to say there are Republicans prepared to vote for higher energy rates as the government moves towards controlling a naturally occurring gas—carbon dioxide. The Republicans leaning towards voting for cap and trade are:
Mary Bono Mack of California
Mike Castle of Delaware
Vernon Ehlers of Michigan
Mark Kirk of Illinois
Dave Reichert of Washington
Get on the phones and demand these people vote against higher energy costs and the loss of American jobs that will result from cap and trade legislation. These people need to lose their any Republican leadership roles in the House if they in fact vote for Pelosi and the Democrats bill to American energy disaster.
Representative Lloyd Doggett was one of the blue dog Democrats on teetering on cap and trade legislation. It looks like he will sell Texas energy and jobs out for Pelosi’s and the Democrats scheme based on unproven science—a science many scientists now doubt considering the factual evidence. In order to get his vote, he was promised a seat on the energy committee so he can help make it better down the like. What a jack ass! If it’s not good right now, then make it better before it becomes law and the damage is done.
This little voice from Texas will not have any power once this becomes a law. He has made the Faustian deal and powerful liberal Democrats will laugh in his face one day when he speaks up realizing Texas energy rates have spiraled out of control because he couldn’t make up his mind until he was promised something in return. Texas, if you live is Doggett’s district, you need to make sure he doesn’t get his seat. You remember he voted for cap and trade and your vote needs to show Mr. Doggett the door.
I was sitting in my grandmother’s basement in August of 1977 watching the afternoon cartoons. Both me and my little sister sat on the red shag carpet when CBS broke in to inform the world Elvis Presley had died of a heart attack. Now 32 years later, there are parallel circumstances.
Within the week, we packed up and drove down to Memphis on our way to Huntsville, Alabama to see some friends from St. Louis that had recently moved south. I remember seeing the lines of people along Elvis Presley Boulevard gathered to mourn the King of Rock N Roll’s death. Elvis Presley Boulevard looked a lot different in 1977.
Now it’s an endless mile of Elvis Presley tourist traps. You can walk inside the Lisa Marie, Elvis’s private Airplane, and at one time you could see the gawd that is Graceland. I have returned to Elvis Presley Boulevard twice since witnessing the pilgrimage to Graceland in August of 1977.
I have heard Lisa Marie Presley talk today about a memory of her fear that Michael Jackson was scared he would die like Elvis, and he definitely fulfilled his prophecy. I can only imagine what the Neverland Ranch might turn into. I am sure it’s filled with gawd as well as I have seen the interviews in the last 24 hours that were filmed there. Jackson loved paintings of himself, and there were some strange ones. Neverland will become the next Graceland—a tourist trap for the post-Elvis generation. I can see it now.
rationing - Obama would pay for critical care out of pocket, by the time
he's done the rest of us won't be able to afford it. Doctors say
proposed government-run health care will drive doctors out of medicine,
and yes, Harry Reid doesn't have time to read the bill he is forcing
through the Senate.
Oh yeah, I forgot that Hussein is joining group in congress to push for
amnesty for illegal aliens - that would be the group responsible for
killing 25 Americans per day with violence and drunk driving.
A Shelbyville, Tennessee couple posted bond after they were arrested for assault. Are you liberals ready for this? You have something else to fight to ban, and this ban covers two evils—violence and obesity. Are your liberal mouths watering for a new cause? Here you go then.
The weapon used in the assault by 40-year-old James Earl Taylor and Mary S. Childers, 44, were Cheetos. They had begun to argue and then began assaulting each other with Cheetos. No one was hurt, but there was cheese powder which coats the snack everywhere. The couple was arrested by Corporal Kevin Roddyand were released on a $2500 bail for both Taylor and Childers. That’s right, $2500 for throwing Cheetos at each other.
They may get off on a technicality though. Roddy called the Cheetos potato chips, which they clear are not. His report reads that the two began verbally arguing "at which time Cheetos potato chips were used in the assault."
Are you kidding me?
They will appear before a judge on July 15.
Paul McCartney's Cosmically Conscious Blog: Just Not Buying into Paul's Environmental Claims on his Blog
Today, I went to Paul McCartney’s Web site to view what he had to say about Michael Jackson after all the tension between them over the Beatles catalog, which Michael Jackson undermined McCartney’s efforts to purchase the rights to his songs. I quickly noticed a blog about global warming, not written by Macca, but referencing McCartney’s global warming beliefs. I just have to laugh in the dishonesty of the blog.
It’s Saturday morning in the city that never pipes down and the bus honk hoooooooooonk honking its irritated way up the crawler lane of the boxed up traffic on Central Park South has a sign of our stupid times running down its side. The ad banner for a new TV show says “watch David De Rothchild’s Eco Trip – the hottest thing since global warming”.
Geddit? The hottest thing, it’s a pun, a copywriter cleverness, ho ho ho, warming, hottest, very cute; let’s make global warming funny, because like it is, right? Melting ice caps, holes in the sky, a planet of rain forest throttled by industrial selfishness; yeah, really funny.
Unfortunately, if we ever get to cryonically come back from the dead to ask our scorched great grandchildren if they appreciated our mirth on this matter they are going to think we were very, very imbecilic back in that moment that could have made a difference. At best, they will pity us and make the same sort of excuses about not getting it as we do now about those other old jerks who used to send little boys up chimneys.
Anyway, that will be then but this is now and in that now in the most advanced and sophisticated city in the world those who provide captions for its popular culture are making pejorative gags about ecology.
I first paid proper attention to the talk about global warming 20 years ago when Paul McCartney was on tour and in Paris and was quarrelling his way to almost losing it at his own press conference with French journalists who were scoffing, ridiculing his endorsement for Les Amis De La Terre and clearly not getting the translation of his pithy way of putting it – “look, all I’m saying is about the environment is we’ve gotta get serious or we’re gonnaget dead”.
I think most of my readers know I admire the Beatles and their music. I have actually been attacked by liberals who think it’s a crime to associate the Beatles with conservatism. Why is that? Have you ever heard the song Taxman? The Beatles, especially George Harrison, understood the evil of government’s greedy hand.
I am going to have to comment on the environmental dishonesty of Paul McCartney, and this isn’t personal. I admire and love Paul McCartney. I saw him in concert in 1993 in Kansas City. I am just tired of people pushing their environmental beliefs upon me to limit the way I live and enjoy life while I see little evidence that they are making cuts in their own lives. Honestly, I don’t mind if you think differently than me, but don’t support robbing me of my freedom and liberties with your naïve views.
McCartney saying “we’ve gotta get serious or we’re gonnaget dead” is as insulting as Ted Danson telling us 25 years ago that the oceans would be dead in 20 years. And of course the writer worries about scorched grandchildren, which is just as insulting. The temperature on earth has raised only about a degree and that degree has gone down in recent years. We are seeing a prolonged period of lack of sunspots which has caused global cooling, and scientists are baffled why solar cycle 23 has lasted much longer than they have anticipated. Yet, we see the typical rhetoric—now with visions of charred grandchildren as if the evil industrial machine placed them into a giant bar-b-que, poured lighter fluid on them, and threw the match in. Please stop with the worthless pathos, and let’s look at the facts before you write of such a horrible seen that’s just not going to happen. If you are so worried about the grandchildren, the maybe you should start worrying about how Obama is handling the economy, specifically his massive spending programs, which threatens the livelihood the next few generations of children. It’s a far greater threat than global warming.
Last summer, McCartney took his new girlfriend, Nancy Shevell, on a road trip across American on historic Route 66. I know McCartney stopped in Lebanon, Missouri, forty miles from the town I grew up in, Strafford, MO. I think it’s cool McCartney drove through Strafford, even though it probably didn’t take him more than 5 minutes to get through the little town. To this day, I know of no sightings, but he stayed on Route 66, he went through Strafford and then Springfield.
How did McCartney drive across Route 66? Did he do it in a hybrid? No.
Did he do it in a Smart Car? No.
Did he do it in a car with an amazing MPG average? No.
McCartney drove 1989 Ford Bronco according to multiple sources. Of course, this was to draw less attention to his trip, and I can respect that. This is a guy who says we need to get serious or we are going to be dead. He is driving a 20 year old SUV across America. Doesn’t McCartney believe his own rhetoric?
McCartney is gearing up for another Tour. Just like the Beatles opened Shea Stadium, McCartney will open the New York Mets new stadium, Citi Field. Now I saw the size of the New World Tour in 1993 with its ‘Cosmically Conscious’ theme. I was there when Paul and Linda’s tour bus pulled in, and I began running after it. The tour was huge, which meant in the liberal world it produced a cosmic-sized carbon footprint. So many of these entertainers preach green, and then they go on tour for green. If they really believed that we are going to be dead, they why do they risk the livelihood of man to go on tour with the massive machines to move stages from city to city, the private aircraft to cross continents, and the massive light shows and speakers eating up electricity. Apparently they don’t believe themselves that we are going to all die or they would stay at home. I'd still go see him regardless of his carbon footprint. He's Paul after all. I just don't believe he buys into the rhetoric when he sets a different example.
