Sarah Palin wrote a great op ed in the Washington Post against the insanity of Cap & Tax. We all know that "global warming" is a hoax and a fund raising scheme for the left. Even by their own estimates, the best case cap & tax scenario is a whopping 0.1 degree drop in temperature over the next 90 years from their draconian taxes. Whoopee!!
Not only would it destroy our domestic energy industry, leaving us more vulnerable globally to tyrants, dictators and terrorists, it would be the greatest tax increase in the history of the Republic. Prices for virtually everything would increase to pay for this monster.
So who does the left trot out to attack Palin on this? The failed Presidential candidate from the people's republic of Massachusetts, John Kerry, was assigned the task. I seem to recall that he served in Viet Nam, but don't quote me on that...
Here was his quote:
"The global climate change crisis threatens our economy and our national security in profound ways,"
If you think about it, he is absolutely correct, even though he probably doesn't even know it. This "crisis," if we enact the nonsense pushed by Kerry, Obama and Al Gore, does threaten our economy and national security in profound ways. We will not survive dancing around windmills and solar cells praying to mother earth to supply all our energy needs.
Anyhow on the same topic, the great Mark Steyn hits another one out of the park:
"Capitalism and consumerism have brought the world to the brink of economic and environmental collapse, the Prince of Wales has warned. … And in a searing indictment on capitalist society, Charles said we can no longer afford consumerism and that the 'age of convenience' was over."
He then got in his limo and was driven to his other palace.
