CA dems re-think cap and trade

Even Democrats realize Cap and Trade = economic disaster

For years, economists have been saying that cap-and-trade would be an economy killer. Now, a group of California Democrats has come to the same conclusion in a letter to the head of California’s air resources board. The 16 Democrats have requested a delay or change to the rules that would put gasoline under the same cap-and-trade rules […]

EPA Mandates Cap and Trade 3.0/ Congress Remains Irrelevant

The Extreme Political Activists, (also known as the EPA, or Environmental Protection Agency) of the Obama administration recently announced new carbon emissions limits for all future coal-fired power plants in the U.S.  that will require all new coal-fired power plants to cut their carbon emissions by approximately 50%.  Just how does EPA head environmental activist Lisa Jackson propose that […]

Newt Gingrich's Record: Uncomfortable But True

I’m going to say something uncomfortable to many of you, but it has to be said: Newt Gingrich has a history of flip-flopping on issues which rivals that of Mitt Romney. There, I said it. I’m not the only one to say it, either. Let’s look at Gingrich’s record: On global warming: He supported government […]

Progressive Senators Gang Up on Rand Paul to Allow EPA to Apply Cap and Trade by Fiat

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky submitted a resolution in the U.S. Senate on Thursday which would have stopped the EPA ( as in Extreme Political Activists) from enforcing the very same cap and trade laws that were previously voted down in Congress. The EPA regulations Senator Paul was trying to block is just the latest […]

United States Postal Ponzi Scheme

Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe appeared before The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee on Tuesday to inform the current wizards of Congress that the U.S. Postal Service is drowning in red ink. They will not be able to avoid a total default by the end of September if structural changes are not made immediately. I […]

Mother Nature’s At The End Of Her Rope

All mother’s have had “one of those days!”  There’s no specific rhyme or reason for what is the “straw that broke the camel’s back”, but invariably it happens. It may be something so insignificant that everyone around her wonders if she’s lost her marbles. Rarely is it something of real importance that is the final […]

Taking the Red Pill: Believing Eyes & Liberal Lies

My four-year-old daughter loves these gummy vitamins we get at Costco.  They come in a huge jar with multiple colors.  She loves the red ones.  She begs me to pick a red one every morning.  But being a practical mother, I’m not about to go rooting around in a jar of vitamins just so my […]

Debunking Global Warming in Nine Minutes [Video]

This video makes a strong case for climate change as nothing but hysteria and profiteering by the Al Gore crowd. Watch all nine minutes to get the full picture. (oh, and that UPS whiteboard guy sure does get around.)

Social Justice Sophisticates Assault Prosperity

Leaders that value self determination and independence are denigrated by those who idolize the memory of a former president who said “Ask not what your country can do for you”—and then lowered taxes. John F. Kennedy allowed people more freedom and control over their lives, which conflicts with grandiose notions of governmental entitlement. He certainly […]

Obama Losing Environmentalist Following

President Obama ran on an environment platform: green jobs, cap-and-trade, and renewable energy.  His constant droning about it during the 2008 election garnered the support of the far left-wing environmental movement, but his actions of-late .. not so much. First we find the Obarrassment in trouble because he said ‘no’ to solar panels on the […]

Rahm Emanuel: White House Chief of Staff

Time to look at the White House staff to get a clearer picture of what’s behind the policies of this administration. First up, White House Chief of Staff Rahm “deadfish” Emanuel. We will get into the deadfish later. First here’s the WhiteHouse.Gov bio: Rahm Emanuel is the White House Chief of Staff. Prior to joining […]

Sunday Rounds

Making the rounds through numerous news sources one theme popped out: Obama is planning a back door approach to getting his extreme agenda implemented even once the overwhelming majority in Congress is lost.  Of course, a few other random bits thrown in as well. At Jacksonsun.com there is a post that describes a back-door approach […]

Cap & Trade, Crime Inc, and Maurice Strong

Harry Reid is once again working on a Climate Change/Cap & Trade/ Energy/Pollution Bill and Obama just wanted to remind you what to expect: That’s right, “Prices will necessarily skyrocket.” And that’s just the minimum you can expect from this oh so wonderous 20 lbs. of legislation. According to Politico: Reid confirmed the bill will have […]

Ethanol: What They Aren’t Telling You

Most information on Ethanol presents the corn-based fuel as a panacea for the worlds pollution woes, a green-jobs creator, and a needed boost to American farmers.  Digging into these claims brings some interesting data points to the surface. The American Coalition for Ethanol touts ethanol as: ..a high octane, clean burning, American-made renewable fuel. Its […]

Obama Looking at Offshore Drilling, as a Means to an End

In a Reuters article, it was reported that the Obama administration is expected to announce by Wednesday its updated plan for oil and natural gas drilling in U.S. waters, including whether to allow exploration for the first time along the U.S. East Coast. The administration plan could open up drilling across the nation that would […]
