    The liberals are asking us to give Obama time. We agree and think 25 to life would be appropriate.

    All we can hope for is the Senate will stop this disaster. Business will never recover until this bill is squashed. No one is spending money while awaiting the outcome and we will likely have a mas exodus of businesses moving offshore or shhutting down if it does pass.

    This is without a doubt the most harmful and foolish piece of legislation ever proposed.

    It still has to go to the Senate but Pelosi did her job as a great socialist dictator in training......Push it through!

    There is a theory going around that MJ was murdered.....I propose that the liberals did it as a distraction for the vote. That’s what Socialist Marxist Dicktators do.......Bill taught them that with his bombing of an Aspirin factory to detract from the Lewinski scandal.










    10 to 1 I get corrected by the liberal spelling police on the spelling of dictator.

    I think this is a HUGE conspiracy that was concocted by Barry and his goon squad... This smells of Vince Foster...

    Snuff out Michale J. and let the inevitable media blitz hide the crappy legislation...

    I would have to disagree on snuffing the child molester. At least at the time that it happened. Getting it through the house was a breeze for the dems.
    On the other hand getting it through the senate is going to be tougher. If they were going to pull some shenanigans it would seem that they would save it for the vote in the senate.

    Regardless it's good that children of the world are a little more safe today.

    This is one of the most damaging pieces of legislation ever to be conceived.

    It basically amounts to (yet another....) a tax on everyone.

    To add insult to injury- the foundation for is is based on complete horsesh t

    I have not yet heard one single piece of evidence for this farce with the exception of simply means of generating revenue and the current regime to say they have "fought global.... err sorry cant say that anymore... fought "climate change."

    We've been f'ed again my fellow citizens.

    Watch you electricity rates for your homes and business over the next 12-24 months and oh boy... look out!

    PS if anyone is wondering what IS responsible for climate change you can look up the big ball of fire in the sky called THE SUN!!!!!!

    I don't watch TV or listen to the radio much so my answer isn't an option. But I did know about the passing of thei legislation in the house.

    I read yesterday that obama wants it passed by the end of this week.

    I only knew because I have been following along very closely. I do get your point and would say that the majority of Americans have no idea what it is let alone that it passed the House. I definately did not hear it on the news.

    Had the radio on in the shop (as I always do) listening to Mark Levin. He sent out the warning early in the week. I was all over the debate that Friday in the HOR.

    Wasn't sure of the real definition. although may still be confused somewhat. I used this to condense it. Sorry for the cut and paste but FYI

    I mentioned Cap & Trade in a meeting this morning and the other 3 people in the room didn't know what it actually was. These 3 are basically "typical" citizens that all voted against O but don't stay up with current topics. Unfortunately with the majority of the population not paying attention due to all the static of MJ and othe BS topics, we stand a lesser chance of the Senate stopping this thing.

    Hopefully enough Dems will realize how increased energy costs to the consumer will get them voted out of office and not go with their leader's wishes.

    O knows he's got to push his skinny asse off to get C&T and his healthcare passe so he will be putting the heat on the Senate. Lots on the plate for these boys as the Sotomayor mistake is currently taking their attention.

    Default July 22, 2009: FYI on Cap-and-Trade

    WND/WENZEL POLL
    2 out of 3 Americans oppose carbon taxes
    Survey shows huge majority resists opening wallets for Cap-and-Trade

    Did you see what India told Clinton? Basically, they told her to F OFF and die, that they weren't going to handcuff their country with a non-existent carbon problem...So, she went to China to explain things to them...

    I honestly believe that 2 out of 3 Americans are smarter than our elected leaders understand...We aren't as stupid as they think we are!

    Hopefully the Senate will take all this into account. I can't believe all the chickenshit politically motivated self centered members won't start looking out for their self survival and bail on the Chairman.....We may get to see a real narcissistic fit.
