Angela Merkel Understands. . .

. . .that higher taxes stifle economic growth and reduce opportunities for the normal folks.

Check this out.

Ms. Merkel has repeatedly ruled out the possibility of tax increases in the
event she wins the election, saying the German economy wouldn't be able to deal
with the burden of higher taxes when it is struggling to regain some growth

Most European leaders have seen the light. Unfortunately, we have Oblahma. He wants to back door tax us until there is no end.

Just an observation.

Climate Change Alarmists "Thugs"

Tom Bowler at Libertarian Leanings has commented on the subject prior to this.

June 26, 2009
The Strength of the Climate Change Argument
Senator, Steve Fielding, decided to vote
his country's climate-change legislation. It seems a growing number
of Australian politicians, scientists and citizens have their doubts on the
science of human-caused global warming. Fortunately, the number of skeptics in
The U.S. is growing as well, and they include Joanne Simpson.
'The number of
skeptics, far from shrinking, is swelling. Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe now counts
more than 700 scientists who disagree with the U.N. -- 13 times the number who
authored the U.N.'s 2007 climate summary for policymakers. Joanne Simpson, the
world's first woman to receive a Ph.D. in meteorology, expressed relief upon her
retirement last year that she was finally free to speak "frankly" of her
Please note my emphasis in the excerpt above. Once again we
get a glimpse of the global warmists' argument. Get with the program, or
else. I don't know what might have happened had she spoken out before her
retirement, but whatever it was, Ms. Simpson didn't want to risk it.
Clearly, the science of global warming is the science of coersion. The
global warmists are thugs, and a vote in favor of any legislation to fight
global warming is an invitation to more thuggery.
There are scientific
arguments against human-caused global warming

I pasted Tom's post in its entirety. I lost his bold type in the paste. Ol' BC himself has commented over and again on how those in the science community who support this lunacy are government employed or on government grants. Nearly all objective scientists have disputed the whole arguement as they study it independently.

Does this mean that those see the farce for what it is don't want a cleaner planet? Of course not. That would be just as silly as those who wish to cripple the United States economy and further punish the poor with this "cap and trade" garbage. Some of the environmental mess is man made and nobody can dispute it. Some carbon dioxide is man made (especially when we breathe). Its impact has been totally misrepresented by some in an effort to increase the size and scope of government. Some actually believe it, I'm sure. But, the House bought into it by a very slim majority. Ol' BC is surprised that the margin was that slim. Maybe we really do have hope in the Senate. Maybe, but don't hold your breath. Thuggery could be coming to the U.S.

Just a thought.

Just Wondering. . .

. . . if any of you have noticed how the media coverage of the Iraq conflict has changed since Oblahma has adopted the Bush strategies. No more blood and gore on the nightly news. No more daily and running death tolls. No more interviews with those screaming to get out now. No more Democrat congressmen and senators jumping in front of mikes to protest this war. The only thing that has changed is the president. Yes, it's becoming apparent that journalism is dead in America.

Global Warming Scientifically Addressed

Tom Bowler at Libertarian Leanings posted this very enlightening argument by two German professors scientifically discrediting the whole global warming theory. It's worth a few minutes to read.

Global Warming

The global warming farce just keeps getting exposed. Not only in Green Bay, but in Dickinson, N.D. as well.

Just an observation.

Obama Actually More Fascist?

As Europe continues to recognize socialism's failure and continues to runs from it, Americans harp about Obama's leap towards socialism with the bank bailout, auto bailout, etc. Given the relative small ownership to date of the means of production by the government as my buddy Mark pointed out in previous comments, it points out that Obama leans towards classical fascism with a small dose of socialism thrown in to stay tight with Hugo and Fidel. As Ol' BC sees it, the means of production in this country are still predominantly privately owned. The government is now, under Obama, dictating the direction, the products, etc to be produced by them in larger and larger measures. Kind of resembles Hilter and Mussolini doesn't it?

Granted, the steps have been smallish in the grand scheme of things. Some of these steps in the "wrong direction" may have actually had good intentions and short term success (the jury is still out on this one). But, in the long run this will probably be looked upon as the dark days of the United States, much as the Jimmy Carter era is today. The big difference now is that Obama has a cheering section in the main stream media and if a source tries to give both sides they are labeled right wing zealots and other colorful monikers (not that the labeling is one sided by any means, this one just gets significantly more air time.) Just wait until the socialized medicine comes into play. The door ajar may be swung a little farther open.

Just a thought.

Interesting Statistic

Ol' BC just read where the U.S. has borrowed more money in the last six months than in the last 30 (thirty) years. If this is in fact the case, this guy is worse than we imagined. Worse than Ol' BC imagined would be pretty bad. Stay tuned for verification or sources. One would think we will be seeing more on this.

Just an observation.

Rocker Has Good Post

As is so often the case, RightWingRocker has a good post. It references an article in PRAVDA that is more than somewhat enlightening. The Russians see what is happening here. Check it out.
