the Budget Obama is about to sign. If you live in a house you are scr*wed. $1 more per gallon of gas at the pump. If you work for the coal industry your scr*wed, and that just the beginning. I didn't even get to the other parts of this. Folks this is the biggest farce, we have been in a cooling trend since 1998. NASA's chief climatologist says Global warming is based on junk science. And MIT's Head of Climatology. And the joke is on the US my friends. The 3rd world countries (who do the most polluting) and even China (big polluter) are exempt. This is nothing more than a transfer of US wealth to the rest of the world, of course other countries support it. Libs like the sound of it "Cap-n-Trade", "Cap-n=Trade". Like we are capping the "BAD" carbon output, methane. And "Trade", like trade is somehow
Obama's EPA announced last week that they are going regulate CO2 as a hazardous substance harmful to human health. Having run a mill with a Title V permit, I believe that this little noticed change will over shadow the impact of cap and trade. This will bring all heavy industry left in the US to its knees in very short order. These heavy industries such as steel mills, paper mills, auto manufacturers, aluminum smelters, power plants, chemical plants, refineries etc all supply family wage, usually union jobs. Many of these plants and mills will shut down or be replaced with off shore facilities. This will be a disaster for our economy and Obama is all for it.
Cap-n-trade is next faux market and will be at the root of the next giant scandal to rock the world. This schema (scam-o-rama) will become Enron on steroids!
Waiting for them to tax my farts
On Tea Party Day lets keep this in the forefront. If your 25 and think the country is heading in the right direction, you need to understand that you will have no future in the USA.
You dont know what you are talking about.
This phony $3000 figure came from an MIT report, but was taken out of context. The scientist-authors of the report demanded that the idiotic republicans stop misrepresenting their report on cap and trade and what it will cost. The authors said their report was being manipulated and lied about by the republicans for political purposes.
Which of course is nothing new.
Remember that not only will your tax rates go up, but your utility bills. $3124 per average household...another tax by any other name. Not sure how they think people can affort that, plus another $1 a gallon, and punishing Co's like Coal into oblivion. Thats alot of jobs my friends. Think of this tax when Tea Partying.
As most liberals you wouldn't know how to look up a fact or do research on your own. We had better all get ticked off at this and stop the foolish spending and these rouge taxes. DOW will go to 2000 with the coming taxes, their will be no jobs and the Jimmy Carter misery index will hit an all time high. Probably won't be able to recover from it.
College kids and Gramps who voted for BO wait till your utility bill pays for this. Maybe inflation will be running amok by then and your retirements will be worthless. So worried about college expenses or Social Security. I think those worries are the least if everything goes to h*ll in a hand basket.
You want to blame third world countries for doing the most polluting? Please try to know what you are talking about. It is a simple fact that of all countries in the world, the US has the 10th highest carbon emissions per capita. You blame China, well, American emissions per capita are 5.3 times as high as China. You can look that up with the US Department of Energy's Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Centre or Wikipedia if you want.
So before you blame other countries, take responsibility for your own actions.
The us is the highest emitter. But transfer our jobs and emissions to another country, with much lower standards than ours will only increase those emission, for the same output.
another words the simple minded democrats will make matters worse for the identical product ( being manufactored across the ocean).
