HUGE TAX INCREASE

The House, in a close vote, has passed the "cap-and-trade" bill, in spite of the fact that:
1) There is no good evidence for global warming
2) There is NO evidence that carbon dioxide has anything to do with global warming
3) Even Greenpeace was against the bill as being useless for conservation
4) None of the useless idiots in DC even read the bill that they were voting on (again)
5) the bill is going to put huge burdens (read dollars) on all of us and do a great job of preventing any kind of business recovery

The following Repuplicans voted FOR the bill's passage Reps. Mary Bono Mack (CA), Mike Castle (DE), Steven Kirk (IL), John McHugh (NY), Leonard Lance (NJ), Frank LoBiondo (NJ), Dave Reichert (WA), and Chris Smith (NJ). Maybe we should drop them a note to "thank" them for looking out for us, the dumb slobs who will have to pay for this.

Our Mr Hinchey.....he seems to see no problem with nailing us with yet another huge chunk of our money being taken from us.

Most people simply don't even understand the nature of the "global warming" debate. First of all, global warming isn't one question. It's four:

(1) Is the climate getting warmer?
(2) If the answer to (1) is "Yes," is mankind the cause?
(3) If the answer to (1) is
"Yes," is this phenomenon harmful in the overall balance?
(4) If the answers to (1) and (3) are both "Yes," can mankind do anything to reverse it?

If the answer to any one of these questions is "No," then any and all legislation is useless and, indeed, harnful and malicious. In that case, we will be causing incredible expense to American people and harm to our economy for no reason whatsoever.

Before causing such harm, it is the absolute responsibility of the environmental lobby to prove that the answers to all four questions are "Yes" - beyond a shadow of a doubt. It is not our responsibility to prove that the answer to any of these questions is "No." The burden of proof is on those who say we should change our society because of something they believe to be true.

That having been said, literally thousands of scientists have offered proof that either there is no global warming or that it is not caused by man. Thirty thousand scientists have signed a petition attesting to this fact.

In reality, a little simple logic is enough to refute all the lies of the environmental-socialist cult of unreason.

Global warming is an irrational superstition unsupported by science, logic or reason.

I can agree that the world has warmed in the last 100 years. But so has Mars (Mars has warmed even more than Earth). So does that mean that our "greenhouse gases" are some how destroying Mars as well? Or are there other forces at work (ie; the freaking Sun), that our government and others are trying to capitialize on for their own benefit.

As for this bill, it is a joke. And the worst part is that we can look at Europe as a warning for why this bill should be killed immediately. As it is Spain wants out of the European version of Cap and Trade. The Wall St. Journal and other respected fianncial news sources have provided a lot of great background of the failures of this program. Basically it has done nothing in Europe but to create a multi billion dollar business while doing little for conservation. However those billions that are being paid out are at the expense of the workers who have lost their jobs and the end user consumers who have to pay more to live.

But unfortunately the American People find the death of Michael Jackson more important. As it is I had to watch CSPAN on Friday for updates on the vote.
