Well it appears as though health care is all but dead. Pelosi, Reid and Obama may attempt reconciliation, but I rather doubt it. Even if they are stupid enough to go ahead and become political kamikazes,when the next Congress comes in they will quickly repeal whatever monstrosity that may be put in place .
With all that said I move on to the subject of this article, namely, the upcoming fight for "Cap and Trade" or as I prefer to call it "The kill the Golden Goose that is America Bill". So called because this country really is the goose that layed the golden egg. We have produced more wealth, more knowledge, and more innovation of every type, than any nation, empire or form of government in history.
Yet it seems to me that the liberal Democrats are hell bent on destroying the greatest economy the world has ever known! Consider the following...
Our nation’s electric utility industry
is heading into a “perfect storm.”
While the amount of electricity we
use everyday steadily increases, the capacity to
generate and transmit that power is running
short. In the past, fossil fuel-fired power plants
were the go-to option to meet growing new
demand with proven technology, but looming
federal regulations on carbon dioxide emissions
is changing that. The cost of complying with
new regulations could make electricity less
affordable for everyone (Read More)
I don't know about you, but, my electric bill is already high enough. Right now,more than ever, this country needs every ounce of energy we can get that doesn't come from some Arab state that prays daily for our death as a nation! We need to "Drill Here Drill Now"!! We need to produce all the coal, coal shale, oil sand, and onshore, as well as, off shore drop of oil we can get. We need to build natural gas, coal fired, and nuclear power plants as quickly as we can.
Yet the cap and trade bill will virtually lock up every form of carbon based energy we have. At the same time the liberals, enviro-loonies, and far left Marxists of the Democrat party oppose every alternative form of energy except wind and solar,and in some camps of the left, they oppose even those.
These fools would have us believe that if we will all only cut back, chant ohm, ohm, ohm, and hold hands we can meditate ourselves out of our energy crisis. Hogwash!! If we continue in this way there will be brown outs, blackouts, and severe energy shortages, in our very near future.
If you love this country and want to see it grow, succeed, and prosper, then find out as much as you can about the REAL effects of the Cap and Trade bill, as well as, the phony science of global warming, and I think you will agree, it's time to gear up for a fight against this Cap and Trade nonsense!!
