Wake Up America

Cap and Trade? Maybe it should be called Crap on a Tray. We should copy Iran and take to the streets. It's not just what's happening, it's the way it's happening. What is the friggin' rush? The Obama administration seems hell bent to change/fix everything in one year...and without any plan or idea about the long-term affect. How much research is going into these proposed improvements? What the hell is happening to our government?

The Governor of SC utilized $12,000 in state funds to cover his travel expenses to Argentina in order to have an affair. If we, as individuals, helped ourselves to money that didn't belong to us, we'd be immediately fired and jailed. Why do we have double standards for cheating politicians? Sure, Bernie Madoff got 150 years for his crime, but President Obama has just succeeded in pressuring Congress to pass his Cap & Trade Bill. Of course, during all the brouhaha over Michael Jackson's death, someone sneaked in and inserted another 105 amendments to the bill...amendments that hadn't been read...amendments that are going to raise our utility bills by 25%, federalize our building codes so that our houses MUST be inspected and meet government standards for energy efficiency before we can sell. If the inspection fails, you'll have to invest to bring appliances, etc, up to the expensive standards of the state of California. Can you afford that? I can't even afford to own a home.

Every car manufactured after 2010 will have to be a hybrid, and every house will have to have a plug-in station. IF you rent...guess who'll foot the bill. Can you say Rent increases? Ask yourself where you'll get the money for all this? I have no idea where I will. I can't pull my RV with a hybrid and I'm locked into a purchase contract. How fair is that? Plus, My husband wasn't laid off when we bought it.

Here are the names of the Republicans who voted in favor...why you ask? They received campaign contributions from Green Companies to help pass the bill. Shouldn't those people be in jail too?

ono Mack (CA)
Castle (DE)
Kirk (IL)
Lance (NJ)
LoBiondo (NJ)
McHugh (NY)
Reichert (WA)
Smith (NJ)

Forty four democrats voted NO, and I applaud them for that. I guess no one promised to line their pockets. According to Michelle Malkins Blog, two Republicans didn't because his daughter was in a beauty pageant in Alabama, and the other in Alcohol rehab. I ask again, when did being a politician become a career over an elected position? We need to clean house and make sure the people elected remember who they're working for.

When are we going to say ENOUGH?

Just wanted to say hello and I'm glad to know you share my feelings.

Thanks for speaking out, Ginger. I, too, support the office, but this president displays a cockiness that says I know what's good for you and I'm going to poke it down your throat whether you like it or not. It's interesting that the Obama folks have steadfastly refused to release his real birth certificate that would show if he is a natural born citizen. And the media has quietly gone along with it. Have you seen the new billboard campaign with the message "WHERE'S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?" I don't know what the truth is, but it would sure be interesting to find out.

thanks for the comments. I think more and more people are starting to feel the fear and panic of a President who plunges headlong into major changes without any plan of action. Congress and the Senate seem far too willing to follow him blindly. It's time for people to stop voting for party lines, and vote the issues. I swear, some people would vote in a dog turd if it had the right party affiliation. *lol*

They DID vote for a dog turd...look at the arrogant piece of shit in office.

WARNING: I support the office of the President, not the person currently holding it!
