I hate having to go back to this but I would feel negligent if I didn’t. What is the fixation with this? Today the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) was supposed to release its preliminary estimate of the health care bill. Two hours before that happened Steney Hoyer, the House Majority Leader, issued phony estimates and the liberal media ran with it.

When the real estimate came out it had a cover page that was basically a disclaimer. They said it was a preliminary estimate of the Senate bill and didn’t even include the reconciliation bill. You can read the reconciliation bill here. It’s my understanding that it calls for the hiring of 12,000 IRS agents. Why would they need this you ask? Because they are to enforce it.

Now, from what I hear if this becomes law a full 60% of health care professionals will quit. What they will do I haven’t heard. Become vets and work illegally? I don’t know. Move out of the country? Retire? Also La Raza, the Hispanic race group plans to protest this law. They expect 250,000 people to show up this weekend. If you would like to protest it but can’t get there the numbers are 877-762-8762 and 202-224-3221. Shut down the switchboard.

A final thought on this, a cub reporter for Fox News, Bret Baier, grilled Chairman Zero yesterday and the reason it is being called an interview riddled with interruptions is because Zero didn’t answer one question. Here is the interview. It’s twenty minutes of dog and pony.As always, screw environmentalists.

Greenhouse Gases

January 25, 2010

I was going to write about the media but then I thought about climate change and how it’s all but over. Then I thought about the EPA and their BS declaring carbon dioxide a greenhouse gas and I figured I better check. So I go to Climate Depot and there it is. A Politico headline “A cap-and-trade bill has a shot in the Senate”. So I go to the article and sure enough these jackals are planning legislation but with out the cap-and-trade part.

If the above isn’t enough to get your thong in a wad how about this? Voinovich, Lugar and Graham are all willing to work with the Democrats on this. Apparently the only one not playing nice with the Democrats is newly elected Scot Brown who, according to the Politico, “expressed skepticism that climate change is being caused by humans.” How long do you think it will be before he goes along with the pack (That’s right isn’t it? Jackals run in packs?).

Anyway this has gone way over the deep end here. I am skeptical that carbon monoxide (the poison stuff out of tailpipes) is a greenhouse gas, much less carbon dioxide (the stuff trees breath in and you breath out). I also question the actual existence of greenhouse gases altogether. As far as I can see no real climate change has occurred. This is just the normal ebb and flow of the weather. How can a bunch of fools take something like that and turn it into this…   whatever expletive you desire.
