The Democrats’ answer to government overspending and overextended credit is more overspending and overextended credit. Obama now wants another trillion dollars in stimulus money to use as he sees fit. The federal government is trying to buy the free enterprise system, lock, stock, and barrel from the private sector, so that politicians can run and control it just like they do in Communist countries. They are forcing bailout (buyout) money on companies and banks who don’t even need it or want it – to gain control of those companies and banks.
In response to the mortgage meltdown and economic recession, a majority of voters voted for Democrats, the very same people who caused the problem that started with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and liberal mortgage lending policies of the Clinton administration. The Democrats’ solution to the problem is more of the same liberal spending and lending policies that got us into the financial mess in the first place. We all will be suffering the consequences of that vote.
The House is preparing to vote on the massive 647-page “economic stimulus” package which is paid for with your tax dollars, your children’s tax dollars and your grandchildren’s tax dollars some time today.
If you do not wish to see your money going to pay for global warming research, ACORN and a laundry list of other special interests, call your representative today and tell him or her to vote NO! Find your representative and senators HERE
The best economic stimulus is to let individuals and businesses keep their own money to invest how they see fit. It is obvious that Washington hasn’t a clue…..
MONTGOMERY, Ala. – For farmers, this stinks: Belching and gaseous cows and hogs could start costing them money if a federal proposal to charge fees for air-polluting animals becomes law.
Farmers so far are turning their noses up at the notion, which is one of several put forward by theafter the ruled in 2007 that emitted by belching and flatulence amounts to .
“This is one of the most ridiculous things the federal government has tried to do,” said Alabama Agriculture Commissioner Ron Sparks, an outspoken opponent of the proposal.
It would require farms or ranches with more than 25 dairy cows, 50 beef cattle or 200 hogs to pay an annual fee of about $175 for each dairy cow, $87.50 per head of beef cattle and $20 for each hog. More HERE
So now the government and the greenie-weenies want to impose a cow-fart tax on farmers. This would put many farmers out of business, but that is ok with this moonbat in the article:
“It makes perfect sense if you are looking for ways to cut down on meat consumption and recoup environmental losses,” said, a spokesman in Washington for .
A voice of reason, US Rep Robert Aderhold, doesn’t think the fart-tax will be taken seriously enough to be adopted, but then again, weirder things have come out of Washington.
I bet Jim Jones is tooling around hell right now green with envy over the mind manipulation the global warming greenies are wielding upon our culture.
We’ve got green jobs, green cars, green dogs, green houses, green toilet paper and environmentally friendly green condoms. Everything now must become green or it is gone, mama. I’m sure Kermit the frog, iguanas, the Grinch, the Creature from the Black Lagoon and Gumby are seriously ticked off regarding the liberal alarmists’ hysterical hijacking of the color they have previously owned, loved and profited from for so many years.
I’m an oil painter, and as an artist I, naturally, love colors—all kinds of colors—but not anymore. Because of the global warming alarmists, as of right now, I officially hate the color green (nothing personal, green). I’m just sick of hearing about you. You are everywhere. It’s that whole overexposure thing . . . that Kathie Lee Gifford, incessant yacking about Cody and Cassidy mind numbing malaise that just the mention of your name now spawns.

Algore is saying hybrid cars will help the environment
He is wrong. SUVs produce co2. Co2 is a gas that trees need to live, If trees died we would die, because trees put out oxygen that we breathe. If trees died the world would die, too.
(For Father’s Day, our nine year old son Lee has submitted today’s commentary on global warming. His theory, his words….)
FREDERICTON — While industry continues to work with the B.C. government to adjust to the province’s new carbon tax, similar rumblings are being made in eastern Canada.
While Ontario recently revealed plans for a cap-and-trade system in lieu of carbon taxation, and Quebec has plans for a combination of the two, a couple of Maritime provinces are kicking around the idea of a carbon tax similar to B.C.’s new policy.
A recent discussion paper from New Brunswick Finance Minister Victor Boudreau had the province reforming the current tax system to include a carbon tax proposal, while Nova Scotia’s Environment Minister noted that pretty much everything is on the table at this point as they work toward a solution.

Its not just American truckers… our counterparts to the north are dealing with the real possibility of rising taxes thanks to the failed science of the AlGore Church of Global Warming that too many politicians belong to. Washington and Quebec seem deteremined to destroy the trucking industry, already struggling under stifling regulation, high taxation and ever increasing fuel costs.

I am an old mystery fan. As a boy,I devoured all the old Erle Stanley Gardner and Agatha Christie mysteries and now read the newer Mary Higgins Clark novels. I guess this is the reason I still get suspicious of sudden changes in society and feel the need to investigate.
For example, I recall all the interest in Communist fronts, especially in the Joseph McCarthy era, before a combination of too much liquor and the Edward R. Murrow CBS show destroyed him.
Have you noticed that the word “Communist” has just about disappeared from our media and our language?I wondered why.
Seeking an answer, I recalled from my detective books that amotto they often used was “cherchez la femme”(look for the woman). This did not seem to apply here. Another, frequently used by Perry Mason, was, “follow the money.” I did – with no success.Finally, I asked myself, who is trying the hardest to destroy America’s economy as the Communist Party had always done?

The PilotOnLine.com (Virginia) is reporting the Warner-Lieberman global warming bill has died in the Senate with only 48 of the 60 votes needed.
The bill, which would put tighter limits on carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions beginning in 2012, would have also increased fuel taxes. Read more about Warner-Lieberman here.
Millions of vacationers paid record prices for gasoline as they hit the roads on Memorial Day weekend, and only those who’ve been in the sun too long would like to see prices climb even higher. Yet several members of Congress seem determined to guarantee that they will.
They’re trying to pass a bill that would raise pump prices. Why? Because they think it would force people to use less. The America’s Climate Security Act, sponsored by Sens. Joseph Lieberman and John Warner, would also increase electricity and natural gas costs, all in the name of supposedly fighting global warming.
The bill, scheduled to be debated in the Senate on June 2, essentially places limits on the amount of gasoline and other fossil fuels Americans can use. The aim is to cut our emissions of carbon dioxide, which is blamed for warming the planet. More from The Free-Lance Star
This is insane. Cowering down to the AlGore Church of Global Warming at the expense of hard working Americans. Start calling, emailing and faxing your senators today!
Have Nancy Pelosi’s “chickens” come home to roost??? Apparently, her little global warming commercial with Speaker Newt Gingrich could be in violation of Federal election law, which states any ad of that sort distributed in a candidate’s district within 90 days of a congressional primary or general election is deemed a campaign donation. From the New York Sun:
“She’s in the ad. That means it’s coordinated,” a Republican attorney who battles to overturn campaign finance laws, James Bopp Jr., said. “I’m a guy that specializes in loopholes. I don’t know of any loopholes.”
What a treat for radical, anti-war loon, Cindy Sheehan, in her quest for Pelosi’s seat.
