Hello, Europe

By  | 
In less than a year and a half, Obama has managed to bring European debt and health care to the US.  Now, he is trying to bring their gas prices here.  Following his chief of staff’s policy of never letting a crises go to waste, Obama is using the BP oil spill to renew his push for his cap-and-tax legislation, and he used the backdrop of the Oval office to do so.
A study done by Harvard University reports that this legislation will result in $7-a-gallon gas.  Let’s ignore what $7-a-gallon gas will do to transportation, the price of all goods and services, and the economy, which will be catastrophic.  Let’s briefly consider the cost of this proposed legislation.
The administration has moved away from calling it what it really is, cap-and-tax, and has re-branded it a “jobs bill.”  Obama did the same thing when he called the second stimulus package a “jobs bill.”  The government does not produce anything, nor does it have any money.  It confiscates our money and gives it to other people.  (47% of the people in this country pay zero federal income tax).  When there are more people drinking the water than carrying it, we will have huge problems.  Neither can the government “create” jobs.  Again, it takes our money and gives it to someone else.  Of the 440,000 jobs “created” last month, 410,000 were government jobs.  That means less money in the private sector.
The “jobs” that this legislation “creates” will come from the green energy economy.  Sounds good, right?  Create two million new jobs while cleaning up the environment is a win-win.  Not so fast.  Just as we only have to look to Europe to see what our health care system will look like in a few years, we can also look to Europe to see what the green economy will do for us.

Spain implemented a similar law.  For every one job it created, two were lost.  More importantly, each job created required an average of $774,000 in government subsidies.  It’s hard to see how any of this makes sense, right?  Why would Obama be doing so many things to destroy this economy?  If you have a few minutes, google “cloward and piven.”  Educate yourself.   Creed@RollinSD.com

$7-a-gallon gas?

The folly of O’s oil-spill ‘fix’

President Obama has a solution to the Gulf oil spill: $7-a-gallon gas.

That’s a Harvard University study’s estimate of the per-gallon price of the president’s global-warming agenda. And Obama made clear this week that this agenda is a part of his plan for addressing the Gulf mess.

So what does global-warming legislation have to do with the oil spill?

Good question, because such measures wouldn’t do a thing to clean up the oil or fix the problems that led to the leak.

The answer can be found in Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel’s now-famous words, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste — and what I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.”

Obama: Using Gulf crisis to push unpopular cap-and-trade bill.

That sure was true of global-warming policy, and especially the cap-and-trade bill. Many observers thought the measure, introduced last year in the House by Reps. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) and Edward Markey (D-Mass.), was dead: The American people didn’t seem to think that the so-called global-warming crisis justified a price-hiking, job-killing, economy-crushing redesign of our energy supply amid a fragile recovery. Passing another major piece of legislation, one every bit as unpopular as ObamaCare, appeared unlikely in an election year.  FULL STORY
