Do you think they’re serious yet?

Posted by Jeff Id on December 9, 2008

Obama has scheduled a meeting with Dr. Al Gore. The powerful Nobel Prize winning mind behind the enlightened movie Inconvenient Truth. Presumably they will discuss issues related to mankind’s coming demise. Since Dr. Gore is leading the charge in cap and trade (an Obama promise) for a nominal fee, he clearly should be the visionary behind our future national policy.

It is hard to describe the warmth and comfort that comes over one when thinking of these brilliant men working together to finally address this most important issue with the intensity and clarity required. It is high time the ignorant conservatives got out of the way and let the business at hand be done.

“I will make a commitment that Al Gore will be at the table and play a central part in us figuring out how we solve this [climate change] problem,” Obama said in April.

From CNN

It is unfortunate that the conservative obstructionists prevented the inevitable truth from coming out, now the costs are likely to be even higher.

Perhaps it’s not too little too late. Oh to be a fly on that wall.

Democrats Preparing for Big Push on CO2

Posted by Jeff Id on November 28, 2008

Don’t expect the dems to hold back on adding cost to industry just because we won’t have any jobs. They are all lining up on their favorite religion, committees are in place and the leaders are all saying the same things.

Here is an article I read yesterday. John Kerry promising to make this issue a priority.

“It’s a moment we’ve been waiting for, many of us, for some period of time — for eight years, to be blunt,” Kerry said. “And we intend to pick up the baton and really run with it here.”

“I have both the chairmanship of the committee as well as a president to work with,” he added in a conference call with reporters. “And I’m very excited about where the United States is going to be. I think President-elect Obama, in his remarks to the climate change summit that Governor Schwarzenegger held least week, made it very, very clear that after eight years of obstruction and delay and denial, the United States is going to rejoin the world community in tackling this global challenge.”

He then goes on with a bunch of double talk as though industrial cost somehow builds opportunity. Green jobs through higher cost services is a common falsehood which goes regularly unchallenged in the media. Costs do not create jobs, cost savings create jobs costs slow them down.

you can’t back off what the science tells us must be done as a matter of global survival. And so you have to turn this challenge into the economic resurgence — into the economic rebound.

Sure the green requirement will create new industries but the costs will quite clearly take from existing ones. It has the same effect as increased taxation. This has gone un-addressed in the media so it has become an obvious true thought in the public mind. But make no mistake, this is another form of load on energy costs, the same as if they raised taxes.

We are going to charge ourselves money to find prosperity. Not that smart really.

And I think that President Obama is poised to show America how a green economy and a transformational economy away from this dependency on fossil fuel is, in fact, part of the plan of restoring our economy and strengthening our economy.

Kerry repeats then the IPCC required party lines

You can’t accept the science and say yes global climate change is manmade and yes global climate change is happening faster than the scientists, in fact, thought it was going to and then not accept the same scientific conclusions with respect to what that impact is and what we’re already witnessing; i.e., the melting of the ice cap, the rising of the ocean levels, the change in weather patterns, the change and migration of forests, the change in agriculture, the droughts.

Right from the Hansen, Schmidt, Mann playbook. Warming is happening faster than scientists predicted, ice caps are melting, ocean levels are rising, changes in weather patterns. All of this is rubbish and has nothing to do with science.

We just came off a record low hurricane season (after the IPCC forecasters were predicting huge disaster yet again)

The northern ice cap has made such a swift recovery this year from it’s summer low that it exceed all previous records. Remember the fastest melt in history this august, well where are the fastest freeze in history articles?

The big one is that temperatures have nearly stopped rising this century so far. There has been very little to no rise whatsoever according to the main temperature metrics. We were supposed to rise substantially yet it didn’t happen.

The rest of Kerry’s list is more fraud than I can deal with right now. The ugly secret is that he and the rest of the democrats know that this issue is bogus. They know they are dramatically exaggerating the truth.

What Americans need to ask themselves is — If they know, Why would the democrats do that?

Make no mistake even with their buddies in the banking industry, they will happily sacrifice the economy for global warming. For those believers who read this article and think the economy doesn’t matter, just think how much more oil and coal we will burn if there is nobody to pay for the changes to higher cost energy? How many people will starve in poor countries due to higher food costs? What will we do when we cannot heat our homes in the winter?

Will the democrats give us fuel credits?

One other thing is for certain. You can bet the ever more liberal politicians will get what they want.

Obama’s Change – Dingell Out and Waxman In

Posted by Jeff Id on November 21, 2008

The change is beginning as promised.

Being a conservative in America today is like being a Detroit Lions football fan, you start the work day with no hope and are surprised when you are wrong. Well no surprise today. A nice limo service driver explained to me last week on my return from the backside of the planet that we have to get behind our president and see what he can do.

Well I was a bit tired and in a bad mood so I carefully explained my position –“The hell I do, I don’t like his policies, I don’t like his friends and associations and I don’t even like his wife.” Well it was a bit strong and a little funny, looking back but I had been traveling awake for 24 hours and wasn’t real happy so forgive me. The driver wasn’t offended and we spent most of the rest of the trip laughing about other things anyway.

At least the Democrats know how to win, the allegedly conservative Republicans didn’t have a clue when Bush won and they gained marginal control of the houses. Instead of following up with their promises of cutting spending they just powered ahead spending more than ever. Make no mistake America has not yet tried conservative government even though we had voted for it.

Obamas Speech was Awful

Posted by Jeff Id on August 29, 2008

Obama’s speech was awful, I guess I am nearly alone in this opinion from reading the media response today.  I hated almost every bit of it.  The pageantry was great, the delivery was moderate and the message was awful.  Listening to huge crowds cheer while he talked down Americas situation as much as he could left a cold sick feeling in my stomach.  It’s just not true about how bad America has it, this is just a sales pitch.

He follows that with one socialist big government proposal after another while his adoring mindless minions cheer raucously.  Stop global warming, give health care to everyone, pay billions for false alternative energy plans.  The bitter comments toward McCain comparing his own commitment to America to what McCain being shot at and nearly killed several times followed by years in a prison camp where he was tortured to the point that he can’t even raise his arms.  What an F….ing joke!

Change, change, change, over and over while promoting socialism in America.  These policies are the same as China, Austria, France, and Russia.  Why do we want that kind of government, it sure hasn’t worked for them.  His ideas aren’t new, they are the same pitch we’ve been hearing from the extreme left for years.

There’s no other word for his supporters, Ignorance. Raising taxes in our economic situation on anyone makes as much sense as sub prime mortgages.

Study, read, learn you are being fed a bill of goods which will send America right to the bottom of the economic pile.  Once we embrace these policies and we see they don’t work, we will never get rid of them.

Biden and Obama -The Campaign with a Lack of Energy

Posted by Jeff Id on August 23, 2008

The biggest issue facing America this year and will be the economy. There are two things loading it down very heavily now, housing and energy. Most of us were wise enough and lucky enough not to own a house which we later couldn’t afford but all of us are paying for broken government policy.

Obama and VP Joe Biden – The perfect driveby storm.

Posted by Jeff Id on August 23, 2008

Here we go. The media blitz will be massive. It appears the uber-liberal Biden is the choice. Absolutely no expense will be spared by the media to prop up Obama now. VP choice through the convention, the war has begun.

Let’s remember what makes America different conservatives, we need to teach the immigrants the difference between government control and freedom. Remember our freedoms we still have, we can speak against increased government control, we can expose the false promise of socialism, we need to fight for our freedom again. This time the problem is more insidious, more cancerous, the liberal forces are on both sides of the government now and our freedoms are vanishing.

The media will push harder than ever before this election.

Obama Supports High Gas Prices -Quote

Posted by Jeff Id on August 20, 2008

From a CNBC Interview See this amazing quote.

Barack Obama: I think that… we have been slow to move in a better direction when it comes to energy usage. And the president, frankly, hasn’t had an energy policy.* And as a consequence we’ve been consuming energy as if it’s infinite. We now know that our demand is badly outstripping supply with China and India growing as rapidly as they are. Read the rest of this entry »
