“James Hansen, sent a letter to Barack and Michelle Obama specifically urging the president-elect to enact a tax on carbon emissions that would take money from higher-income Americans and distribute the proceeds to the less fortunate.”
Environmentalists are socialists? Is this news?
Why are my tax dollars paying Hansen’s salary?
If that letter is on official NASA letterhead, he needs to be fired.
Either he works for NASA or he hawks the Global Warming Hoax—he can’t do both.
Time to lock and load.
Green on the outside
red on the inside
This issue must be our battle ground in the next two years. Global Warming is a global socialist plot, period. There is no evidence of rising temperatures or rising seas, but it is accepted as fact in the media and no one is questioning this garbage in the public eye. This threat must be mitigated or it will be the Trojan Horse that the Dems will use to jack up taxes without public outrage....it is all in the name of saving the planet, don’t you know.
Another cat escaped from the bag.... The high priests of the Cult of Global Warming are getting sloppy these days. It must be the cold.
In theory, this isn't necessarily so — unfortunately, it has become so in practice. Socialists long ago co-opted legitimate environmentalism. They wrapped their true red, squishy selves in a thick green rind.
What a shameful POS. This is more evidence that leftists make stuff up like global warming just to confiscate wealth from others.
why don’t we get global warming and environementalism declared actual religions, then when ever they open their mouths we can use the seperation of church and state line on them...
Man, if this isn’t a job for
I don’t know what is.
Did any conservative ever have a doubt that this issue wasn’t >99% about socialism and <1% about “saving the earth”?
“Global Warming is a global socialist plot, period”
There are free market solutions to each and every enviro-problem. Funny how all prominent greens just happen to advocate government internvention. Quite the coincidence, huh?
Actually, no, it’s not a coincidence. Conservative radio shock-jock Jason Lewis (Minnesota’s Mr. Right) repeatedly says global warming is a socialist answer looking for a question. They are socialists first, scientists second.
It’s already been tried with Secular Humanism.
The courts have ruled that it IS a religion for purposes of free exercise (conscientious objection)
but is not a religion when faced with the establishment test.
btttttt...(Bump the truth to the top.)
Now we understand the agenda a little better, in which a new layer of taxation is being applied.
But what was wrong with the old system of trading your time and talents for an earned wage, or selling the product of your ingenuity and labor, then trading your earnings back for the luxuries and necessities you deem vital to your life?
Sure, the outcome may be unequal, but what is “equal” about the result of giving unearned income to those who did not work for it, or did not demonstrate any rational claim on that cash flow?
If you want to give away part of your income to another, then by all means, adopt that pet project and give your income away. It is the element of “compulsary” donations that is the ugly aspect here.
Hasn't that always been its only purpose?
Exactly. Socialism is un-American. I want this guy fired immediately. If his boss won't fire him, I want the boss fired immediately, replaced, and his/her first job is to fire this socialist idiot.
There fixed it.
