Cap And Trade Bill

Posted by Billy On June - 29 - 2009

Unless you’ve been too busy or live under a rock in a far away place, You are aware that last Friday Congress voted on the Cap and Trade bill (aka, cap and tax). The bill is designed by the Obama Administration to basically tax everything that emits carbon. If you’re thinking that this bill is aimed at big business and the energy sector, you’re only half right.

This will tax everything. That includes flatulent cows, that’s right cows that pass wind. It doesn’t just end there. the truck driver who drivers the cow to the slaughter house. Let’s not forget the wrapping the is needed to package the meat. All the different processing plants that are needed to get the meat to your plate. Everyone of them will have to pay higher taxes to the government because of the carbon dioxide that they produce.

If you think that won’t affect you, you are dead wrong. It’s a known fact that these costs will be passed on to the consumer.

All in the name of global warming. That’s right we are going to be taxed more to help save the entire planet from a chemical that is a basic necessity for the world to survive. The global warming concern is nothing but a political move to redistribute wealth. Many African countries don’t have an infrastructure system and don’t emit carbon emissions, so counties like America (especially the U.S.) will have to buy the carbon credits from those countries, henceforth wealth distribution.

I expect that type of planning from the Democrats but to see Republicans join the crusade is not. The final vote was 219-212 for the bill. There were eight Republicans that voted for the bill. We need to send a clear message to those eight members of Congress that helped the Democrats raise our taxes. The only way to do so is to call them and let them know that we will not contribute to their campaign because we aren’t going to vote for them.

Here are the names and phone numbers to their office. There is time for them to change their vote and if they want any chance of being re-elected, they will have to do so.

Bono Mack (CA) 202-225-5330
Castle (DE) 202-225-4165
Kirk (IL) 202-225-4835
Lance (NJ) 202-225-5361
Lobiondo (NJ) 202-225-6572
McHugh (NY) 202-225-4611
Reichart (WA) 202-225-7761
Chris Smith (NJ) 202-225-3765

Remember that when you call them to inform them of your dissatisfaction, you must state that you are a contributor. If you don’t, they really don’t care what you have to say (which is a whole other story). They only care about their campaign fund and their own wallets. Which is another reason why we need to vote all of them out when they’re up for re-election.

Media Bias Is Out Of Control

Posted by Billy On June - 17 - 2009

Since President Obama has taken on challenge of running for office, he’s been shown obvious favoritism from the main stream media. Only FOX News Channel has been negative towards Obama in any way. I will say that they(FOX) are very against the current Administration.

It now gotten to the point where the media is outright in the open with their relationship with Obama. ABC will be airing Obama’ speech titled “Prescription for America”. The purpose is for him to explain his plans for nationalized health care. While reading the Drudge Report, I found this article about how ABC won’t let a organization buy some air-time after the broadcast so they can give an alternative viewpoint. You can read it for yourself here.

I also heard today how Obama will be “making his rounds” on many different shows to get his health care message out to the people. Of course he’s being selective of who will be broadcasting it. One of the ways he’ll be doing so is by having some sort of involvement with the show “Dora the explorer”. That’s right, a cartoon. It has been stated that FOX will not be given that option and the reason is because o the fact that FOX is not a financial network. All of this is still being hashed out and I will continue to follow this atrocity.

Let Your Voice Be Heard

Posted by Joanne On February - 6 - 2009

Will Bower posted the following link on facebook tonight and I wanted to pass it along.

He said:

The four key GOP Senators who need to hear from us (try phone lines, try FAXes, try the email addresses we have listed) are: Senator Olympia Snowe (Maine), Senator Susan Collins (Maine), Senator George Voinovich (Ohio), and Senator Arlen Specter (Pennsylvania). All the contact information you need to reach these offices ASAP.

Stop The “Stimulus”

The page is a database of phone numbers, fax numbers, and emails for each Senator. They suggest you contact the two Senators from your state and then work through the rest of the list as well. In terms of effectiveness, phone calls and faxes are most important, followed by emails.

Obama Uses The White House Website To Slam Bush

Posted by Joanne On January - 20 - 2009

Obama’s new White House website takes a parting shot at Bush. Very classy Obama…you’re off  to an impressive start. I expected more tact and grace from you after being President for only a few hours. Well, what can you expect…he’s a politician…just like all the others. So much for moving forward, common good and all that crap. *yawn*

President Obama will keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. He and Vice President Biden will take steps to ensure that the federal government will never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur.

President Obama swiftly responded to Hurricane Katrina. Citing the Bush Administration’s “unconscionable ineptitude” in responding to Hurricane Katrina, then-Senator Obama introduced legislation requiring disaster planners to take into account the specific needs of low-income hurricane victims. Obama visited thousands of Hurricane survivors in the Houston Convention Center and later took three more trips to the region. He worked with members of the Congressional Black Caucus to introduce legislation to address the immediate income, employment, business, and housing needs of Gulf Coast communities.
