More skillful marketing at the hand of the liberals. Two “green” machines: global warming and Obama.

(I believe) the tide is turning in public opinion, that people are recognizing Global Warming is nothing but BS. But the Government has figured out that that “problem” gives them an excuse to grab a lot more power and a lot more money, therefore the Global Warming nonsense is just getting started.

It is called cap and trade. Companies that produce carbon will have to buy credits that will be passed on to the consumer. Basically this time next year if it passes, natural gas will double in price and coal produced electric which is about 70% of our electric will triple in price. Everything that travels to the store by truck will have the added on tax of cap and trade. Yes it is a hoax and will put most of us unable to afford the basicas anymore.

Notice that “Global Warming” has been rebranded by the pinkos. It is now “climate change” because people are starting to catch on to their flim flam and realize there is no provable global warming.

Remember the ultimate goal of the left is CONTROL.

When they control your energy usage, your health care access, and your food,

there’s not much left but your soul.

Revelation 13:17 (New King James Version)
17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or[a] the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

A start on Waxman’s goal would be for him to stop breathing immediately. After that I doubt that he would see the urgency of the situation.

Temps up here on the northern plains are in the -40 degree range this morning. Where the heck is Al Gore’s imminent global warming? Looking at national temps today anyone still believing in global warming is an idiot.

Don’t let them.

“Climate change” really is the perfect theory, because no matter what the weather, it can be blamed on Climate Change.

And no matter what the Climate Change is, it’s always caused by humans.

Sen. Inhoffe needs to be involved here so that things don’t get too out of hand. His report in December with over 600 real scientists suggests appropriately that global warming is not happening and that man has no influence on climate.

——perhaps this is part of the plan———

the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

We have more coal than Saudi Arabia has oil; the Democrats are trying to ban coal, even in “clean” coal plants.

We have oil resources that would make us a primary oil producer instead of the primary oil receiver; the Democrats won't allow drilling.

The domestic and world economies are powered by carbon fuels; the Democrats want to penalize us and others for using carbon fuels.

We deserve everything coming our way.
