From Liberty Pundits:
See, no one believes the Democrats on Global Warming. Why? Because they live in big houses, fly on their private jets, and consume more than the average aggregate of a third world country.

Liberals aren’t using outhouses. They drive Hummers. They have fleets of submarines. They cool their homes. They are, in short, unserious about the Cataclysm That Is Upon Us.

So, we don’t take them seriously and go about living our lives.

The Republican version of The World Is Going To End, has been spending. And, for once, it’s not hyperbole. The United States is in a very precarious financial position.

Excellent point.

Both sides exhibit the all too human tendency to take the easy path.

That's why we respect the man or woman who lives their principles.

For Republicans, the mechanisms of getting and holding political power drives many to pork spending in spite of their avowed principles and campaign promises.

It is the voters who must take a stand since it is their votes that are being bought. Will you critize the Republican congressman who secures federal grants for a new airport terminal or a new high speed rail system? This is something that we must do - government reflects the moral state of the citizenry.

1) I will fire the SOB. Got that?

2) "1" is what the Tea Party is all about. Perhaps you've heard of it? :^D

I just gave crap to a friend on Facebook for posting up some big to-do over the GOP voting down a bill for 911 workers based on the fact that the Dems won't compromise on the Bush tax schedules, which the Dems are attempting to selectively repeal/allow to expire -- leaving in-place measures for lower-income families, but eliminating anything for higher-income families.

This, of course, is "Tax cuts for the wealthy" according to the Dems -- funny, sounds to me like THEY are attempting to INCREASE taxes on the wealthy, not "cut" their taxes.

And THEY -- the Dems -- are willing to reject the GOP over it, thus creating the situation where the GOP isn't willing to pass ANYTHING -- not just a "bill for the assistance of 911 workers".

But the media spin, of course, is to gin up public outrage as though the GOP were voting down only this bill.

It's crap, and I'm sick of it. The media, and their puppet masters the Dems, are such a lying bunch of scumbags it's pitiful.

Al Gore came a whisker away from admitting that he was lying about ethanol:


Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore reportedly has had a change of heart on ethanol, telling a conference on green energy in Europe that he only supported tax breaks for the alternative fuel to pander to farmers in his home state of Tennessee and the first-in-the-nation caucuses state of Iowa.

Speaking at a green energy business conference in Athens sponsored by Marfin Popular Bank, Gore said the lobbyists have wrongly kept alive the program he once touted.

"It is not a good policy to have these massive subsidies for first-generation ethanol," Reuters quoted Gore saying of the U.S. policy that is about to come up for congressional review. "First-generation ethanol I think was a mistake. The energy conversion ratios are at best very small.

"One of the reasons I made that mistake is that I paid particular attention to the farmers in my home state of Tennessee, and I had a certain fondness for the farmers in the state of Iowa because I was about to run for president," the wire service reported Gore saying.
