Cap and Kill the Economy


You may have seen the gravestone citing America's creation date and the day of it's death. We now know the official death date of the United States of America was June 26, 2009. It didn't take a missile loaded with nukes from North Korea. It didn't take Al Qaeda to attack the economy with terrorism. It took eight Republicans and a few Democrats who failed to represent the people so they can relish in their narcissism.

In the coming years you will see factories close and go overseas--tired of trying to be patriotic and keep the jobs in America because of taxes on their production of carbon dioxide--a gas needed on the planet for life to exist. For you environmentalist who can't think beyond today, they will head to a country where there are no regulations, so tell me what did you win yesterday? One day you will realize you lost. You lost freedoms, jobs, and affordable energy.

I mourn today knowing the final knife into the back of great industrial power known as America was at the hands of eight Republicans--Mary Bono Mack (R-CA), Mike Castle (R-DE), Mark Kirk (R-IL), Leonard Lance (R-NJ), Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ), John McHugh (R-NJ), Dave Reichert (R-WA), and Rep. Chris Smith (NJ). If you seriously believe nationalized healthcare can be beat, you better look at how the Democrats bribed spineless politicians to change their votes during the cap and trade debate.

This has special meaning for me. I live in the State of California. There are many people here who wonder why this state is almost bankrupt. Falling tax revenue and increased spending has certainly been a problem. The liberal-dominated state legislature has shown little, if any, restraint. But the crux of the issue began with creating a climate that was business-unfriendly. Businesses in this state were chased away by punitive taxes and rules. This created job loss. It was not remarkable that lower tax revenue resulted.

Obama, in his Saturday morning radio address today, touted the hundreds of jobs that are being created by his green projects. Those few jobs are a drop in the bucket compared to the number of jobs that should be available through a thriving free-market economy. Government jobs, in the economic sense, are not real jobs at all. They are paid with funny money. Picture this. Imagine a state where there is NO private economy. Everyone who works, works for the government. The government pays them, and they pay taxes back to the government, in addition to the costs of daily living. Their taxes are not enough to sustain the government. The system begins to starve. The only option is to borrow, which we do WAY too much. Print money, ala Monopoly, creating vicious inflation that impoverishes everybody. Or go bankrupt.

No, what this country needs is commerce. Private enterprise. Brave Americans with the confidence that their hard work will not earn them a kick in the teeth.

If the Cap and Tax bill passes the senate and is signed into law, don't come back to me and ask why our country is in financial trouble. Don't come crying and whining about jobs. If we allow our representatives to chase our businesses overseas, we have only ourselves to blame. You might need to polish up your passport and get a Rosetta Stone program and move your family overseas to get one of those jobs. Comprende?

I think you should write a blog about the realities of California zoning laws that will now be forced upon the other 49 states. This bill adopted California zoning laws and is a violation of the 10th Amendment.

My Gadsen flag is flying in front of my house today. I figure we are going to have to start the movement by putting signs out there for our neighbors to share their thoughts and to organize to fight these people who are stealing our rights away.

So true. Wanted to let you you know I used part of your post title on my Facebook update. It was just too good. This is such a bad thing - especially with "Obamacare" coming up. I ran into some really ignorant people today at the Farmer's Market telling people how great "Medicaid for everybody" would be. Seriously. They asked me if I thought Medicaid for everybody would be a good idea. Morons.

"In the coming years you will see factories close and go overseas... they will head to a country where there are no regulations"

Just too simple an equation for any libwuhl to fathom. Only confuses them. Critical thought in America, is now approaching a 140 character limit.

Kinda like Michael Jacskson's fans, camping out on Hollywood Boulevard. On the wrong star.

The future's so bright, I need welding goggles.

BBCW, can you get me some info or links on that? I saw you mention that this was slipped into the cap and tax bill. I will be happy to write about how bad things are here in CA economically.

Charmaigne, some folks have to learn the hard way. I hope we don't have to depend on folks like that to defend American Freedom.

Elmo, great to see you here. You can't teach a Sneetch, as Dr. Seuss liked to say.

Chicken Little is running around shouting "the sky is falling." But no one will take notice of the fact that he has lumps on his head and one of his wings has been knocked off.

I live just outside of DC. We are going to visit each of the Rino 8 who voted on this. We are going to ask for explanation of the vote and if we don't like the answer, we are going to start a letter writing campaign to RNC and the RNCC asking that they cut funds for the re-election campaigns of these people. I donate good money to the RNC so I would like to think that will give me some creditability. Naive maybe, but if they get enough letters they just might listen. I am going to post this letter on my site once I get it composed for others to follow suit. My 9/12 group has more than 200 people, and that is just on portion of my state, so we should be able to get at least 1000 letters written. They need to know that we are watching.

Wo, with the state-run media, we are lucky to get any word out at all. The thing that heartens me, though, is that the media was against Reagan, too, back then. And he CREAMED them. He he.

JACG, ooooo, girl! Go GET EM!!!!! Mrs. Smith goes to Washington! I can't wait to read your first-hand blog posts about your DC adventures. I would love to give the story a boost. Make sure you swing by here and clue me in.

I think that is the intent of the bill,to destroy capitlism,and replace it with socialist fascism. Which by the way is the agenda of the radical left,such as ACORN.
