Huge reading list.

I see a couple of articles that would seem to be worth a separate thread so the discussion is more focused.....

To a large part, the election was driven by middle class voters who appear to feel disenfranchised by Washington.

The election was driven by two basic and interconnected ideas (ideals?):

  1. Get the federal government out of every minute aspect of our lives and back to constitutionally defined responsibilities.

  2. Get the federal government's money grubbing tentacles out of our pockets and the pockets of our unborn children and grandchildren.

Skinning The Carbon Cat With EPA

*****************************EXCERPT INTRO***********************************

IBD Editorials ^ | November 4, 2010 | Staff

Environment: Standing amid the smoking ruins of Tuesday's defeat, President Obama indicates he's backing away from a cap-and-trade law. But as great as that news is, someone still needs to watch the backdoor.

It's been said that a socialist thrown out the window will come back through the front door as an environmentalist. This reminds us of something we noticed in the president's day-after concession speech.

Though acknowledging the cap-and-trade law is no longer a legislative priority, Obama also said he's not giving up on the idea of restricting Americans' output of carbon dioxide.

"Cap-and-trade was just one way of skinning the cat," he said at Tuesday's news conference. "It was a means, not an end. I'm going to be looking for other means to address this problem."

In moonwalking away from cap-and-trade, the president was simply admitting that, with a Republican-controlled House, the bill is going nowhere in the next two years.

Unfortunately, Obama is still a believer, if not in man-made global warming, then in what he believes to be his right to meddle in private lives. If he can't supervise the clingers, enemies and the rest of bitter America through cap-and-trade, he'll settle for some other way to put limits on the masses. He suggested the EPA could beef up its police powers to rein in CO2 emissions.

And this has a thread:

The Green Bubble is about to Burst

*************************************EXCERPT INTRO*****************************************

Posted on Fri 05 Nov 2010 07:02:11 AM PST by Gomer1066

There is a revolution coming that is likely to burst the green global warming bubble: the temperature trend used by the IPCC (the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) to support their conclusion about anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is likely to turn out to be fake. The situation will become clear once Virginia's attorney general, Kenneth Cuccinelli, obtains information now buried in e-mails at the University of Virginia. Or Hearings on Climategate by the U.S. Congress may uncover the "smoking gun" that demonstrates that the warming trend used by the IPCC does not really exist.

It has become increasingly clear that any observed warming during the past century is of natural origin and that the human contribution is insignificant. It is doubtful that any significant warming is attributable to greenhouse gases at all.
