Did your senator say "no" to carbon hysteria? Please thank him or her....
Senate ^ | 6/9/08 | Self

Posted on 06/09/2008 6:39:21 AM PDT by littlehouse36

Just a friendly reminder... if you haven't already sent a thank-you note to your senator  (if you are fortunate to have one of the 36 who are level-headed), the link below will provide easy access to contact. 
 
Now, if you are represented by one of the 64 who ignored the plea of 31,000 American scientists... I'll leave that up to you ;-).
 
Thanks, FRiends.

Amazingly, one of the few times our RINO, Chuck Hagel, voted more conservatively than his Dem counterpart (Nelson).

No, our FL RINO Martinez and Dem traitor Nelson (elected because the GOP stabbed Katherine Harris in the back) voted exactly as we expected them to- against common sense.

Ol’ Shjt’s Brown thought L-W didn’t go far enough. Dorkan (no typo) would have voted ‘yea’, but — gee! — all of a sudden his state is about to become a BIG player in crude, and a ‘yea’ vote would likely cost him his seat.

Yes. He event commented that he wasn't about to let factories close because of this sort of legislation (paraphrasing). I sent him a note of thanks along with one to Sen. Voinovich.

Coupled with Gov. Strickland's stance on homeowners being able to shoot intruders, I'm left sort of confused on who's liberal and who's conservative.

If you or your senator are Catholic, you might want to remind them of what Pope Benedict recently said about climate alarmism:  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-501316/The-Pope-condemns-climate-change-prophets-doom.html

Thanks for the reminder and the contact info!

One of my (TX) senators, Kay Bailey Hutchison, voted NO. Good girl!

The other (John Cornyn, normally a reliable conservative voice and vote) did NOT vote.

I just called his office. Actually got to talk to a human being, for a change (I usually get voicemail).

I asked him why the Senator didn’t vote on the climate change bill. He said “because he was in Texas”.

I asked him WHY he was in Texas instead of in Washington doing the job we hired him to do, and reminded him that this issue is a very important one for Texans and for the nation. He said he didn’t have an answer for why the senator was in Texas vs. Washington.

I asked him how Senator Cornyn would have voted, had he been present. He said the Senator was opposed to the bill.

I told him I was disappointed in the non-vote and he promised to pass that along.

Senators not voting can only mean one thing - they are cowards to their convictions and plan to play their lack of voting to both sides of the issue in their home states. McCain and Obama are the worst of the bunch!

>> Senators not voting can only mean one thing - they are cowards to their convictions and plan to play their lack of voting to both sides of the issue in their home states. McCain and Obama are the worst of the bunch!

In Cornyn’s case, I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he was in TX campaigning or fundraising. He’s up for re-election this year.

In FreeAtlanta’s list of (R) senators that didn’t vote or voted “Y”, Sen. Cornyn is the only one that I would argue shouldn’t be tarred with the same brush. He is ideologically conservative, he does his best to LEAD rather than follow, and he generally has the courage of his convictions — he’s reliably conservative, not squishy like Kay Bailey.

Nevertheless... in my view it is UNACCEPTABLE to miss votes (and debates!) as important as this one, unless he’s sick (REALLY sick) or there’s a death in the family. Other excuses are just that — excuses.

Frankly, the whole carbon credit and cap and trade scam seems like nothing so much as a parallel monetary system; designed to be put into place and no doubt to be followed by a “fiat” lending and credit system controlled much like our current fiat system...by an elite group of carbon bankers.

You’re right. She is a moron.

From the N&O
http://www.newsobserver.com/politics/story/1098327.html

She had her eureka moment more than a year ago, after poring over the science about climate change and coming to the conclusion that the Earth definitely is getting warmer.

She was further persuaded when two Senate buddies on the Armed Services Committee — Independent Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and Republican John Warner of Virginia — talked to her about climate change’s impacts on national security.

She signed on and became one of just a handful of Republicans to support the bill, which allows companies to “buy” credits in exchange for emitting carbon.

She says the bill will lessen dependence on foreig

OOPS! I didn’t get the whole quote

She says the bill will lessen dependence on foreign oil.

“We’re almost 60 percent dependent on foreign sources of oil, and look at where it comes from: Russia, the Middle East, Venezuela,” she said.

YET she opposes drilling offshore or in ANWAR I predict she loses in Nov.
