Dems in 2010: New Year, Old Target

January 2, 2010

I laughed out loud when I saw this headline from Fox: “Desperate for Edge in Election Year, Dems Turn to Old Strategy.”  What strategy, you ask?  Let’s go through the old Democrat Playbook: Class warfare?  That’s a given.  Republicans are racist, homophobic neanderthals?  Not yet, but wait for it by summer.  Blame Bush?  Bingo! The [...]

Don’t Breathe, It’s Now Harmful to Public Health

December 7, 2009

Well, I suppose one can breathe IN, just not OUT! CO2 is a danger to public health;  so says the Environmental Protection Agency today in a Pearl Harbor-like surprise that’s slated to doom our long-term economic future. In 2007, the Supreme Court allowed the regulation greenhouse gases, including CO2, by the EPA.  Seeing Cap-and-Trade about [...]

Obama: Climategate Be Damned — Copenhagen is On!

December 5, 2009

Well, the forecast wintry mix totaling “a dusting to an inch” is already near three inches deep in my part of Central Jersey, so I couldn’t resist a global warming/Climategate post!  Especially when in the face of all the uncertainty behind much of the climate science underlying the upcoming Copenhagen initiatives, President Obama is going [...]

The Cap and Trade Bill has been put on the back-burner in the Senate, and will not be taken up in committee until after the Congressional August recess.  Barbara Boxer, who had originally pledged to wrap up the committee work before the recess, has changed her tune (possibly because Robert Byrd has announced that he [...]

A Snapshot of Two Polls

July 9, 2009

It’s the first full week of July and there are some political trends worth checking out.  Usually the summer is very slow news time since so many people are on vacation or otherwise busy enjoying what summer has to offer.  However, with Cap-and-Trade, Obamacare, and Tea Parties galore, both June and July have already been [...]

Cap and Trade, the “climate change” bill created to combat the fictitious climate change hoax will impact all areas of life and affect virtually everyone in this country.  One aspect of this is home ownership.  Besides draconian,  new building codes being enforced on new construction, the bill requires that all homes have a published energy [...]

Climate Change Religion Suppressing Science

July 6, 2009

You’ve probably already heard about this story from last week regarding EPA analyst Alan Carlin’s 98-page study on global warming and carbon dioxide.  It’s definitely worth noting.  The EPA didn’t like the findings and tried to suppress Carlin’s key finding:  that while levels of CO2 may have increased in recent years, global temperatures have gone [...]

The Unraveling of the Obama Agenda

June 20, 2009

The Democrats have, according to the state-run media, a wildly popular president in the White House, a large majority in the House of Representatives, and an almost filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.  So why does it seem like Obama’s agenda is quickly unraveling? I have contented for a while now that Obama is trying to [...]

The Tax Increase of Cap and Trade

March 11, 2009

Barack Obama campaigned and still maintains that 95% of all Americans will receive a tax cut, and only the top 2% will receive a tax increase.  If one is talking about income taxes, this may be technically true, although the claim itself is somewhat dubious.  Leaving that discussion to another day, however, the sum of [...]
