The Orcs Win Round One

The Democrats’ execrable Waxman-Markey bill has passed by a narrow vote of 219 to 212.  Check this link to see if your congressman was a wise man or a fool.  Start talking to your senators and persuade them that this legislation will be catastrophic for America’s economic and energy future.  And for your own edification, please understand that this bill does nothing worthwhile for energy.  At bottom, it’s a tax bill.  They just happen to be applying their taxes to energy under the transparently fraudulent cover story that they’re saving the planet.

It must be understood why the Democrats rammed this through the House of Representatives on such a rush basis.  The scientific “consensus” on man made global warming was never anything but a sham.  An army of bloggers has exploded the junk science supposedly justifying this energy bill.  The smart ones among the greenies are starting to slink away from it in embarrassment, so the political support for Waxman-Markey is calving away like icebergs in an Algore fiction movie.  The bill had to pass today because it couldn’t pass tomorrow.  So while I’m disappointed, I am not ready to despair because political support in the senate is deflating also.  There is still time to get the senate to say no.  Even if they’re persuaded to delay through the summer, Waxman-Markey and its fake science will probably be in rigor mortis by September.  They’re in a race against time, so we are too.

Note 1: The bill passed with small but crucial Republican support.  America needs an independent political party comprised of more patriots and fewer sellouts.  Here are the sellouts.  They are all either from the northeast, the Pacific coast, or Obama’s state:

Mary Bono Mack (R-CA)
Mike Castle (R-DE)
Mark Steven Kirk (R-IL)
Leonard Lance (R-NJ)
Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ)
John McHugh (R-NY)
Dave Reichert (R-WA)
Chris Smith (R-NJ)

Note 2: As I wrote some weeks ago, it’s increasingly difficult to believe the Democrats are true patriots with whom I disagree but who nevertheless mean well.  Need proof?  Once again, in the single-minded interest of getting their way, and despite campaign pledges never to do this, they’ve passed a massive bill which not one single member of Congress has read.  Patriots who mean well don’t behave like this.  A nation which chooses such inexcusably sorry rulers will, I fear, get what it deserves.

Note 3: You can wade through the mind-numbing complexity of the bill at this link.  Pay particular attention to the various lists of congressional findings and ask yourself whether you think the representatives who supported the bill honestly believe these findings are true or even if he/she knows what they mean.
