Yet Another Reason to Hate Cap-and-Trade

Yet Another Reason to Hate Cap-and-Trade

My post today at the American Issues Project deals with a rumor I’ve seen making the e-mail and blogging rounds. It says that if you own a home and want to sell it, the Democrats’ cap-and-trade bill would require you to have your house inspected to make sure it meets a certain energy-efficiency target and, […]

Al Gore has gone completely around the bend, folks. His shame and sense of decency has expired and lies moldering in the ditch where he tossed them because he needed the room for more faux righteous anger. Al Gore invoked the spirit of Winston Churchill today by encouraging political leaders to follow the example of […]

My new post is up at AIP. Wednesday is usually an energy/climate change day for me there, which is good because I’m getting a ton of mileage out of the Democrats’ cap-and-trade bill. Watching the horse-trading going on is like watching a piranha tank after you’ve thrown in a shank of lamb. As always, I’d […]

Is it too much to ask that the President’s Energy Czar, whatever the hell that is, actually read the entire bill she is lobbying so hard to get through Congress? Well, if you ask her, and Steve Doocy did, it’s horribly unfair to even ask the question. Doocy asked her five times and she managed […]

You know the old saying, “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em”? Well, the Cult of Global Warming has a new spin on the old saw. “If you can’t beat ‘em, deny they even exist”. Over the coming days a curiously revealing event will be taking place in Copenhagen. Top of the agenda at a […]

How bad was the Democratic cap-and-trade bill passed by the House on Friday evening? It’s hard to say for sure, since it wasn’t actually finished when the Dems, assisted by eight gullible Republicans, voted for it. Through a series of parliamentary inquiries, the Republicans learned that the 300-plus page managers’ amendment, added to the bill […]

Democrats Don’t Need to Read the Bill, They Know What They’re Getting

Back in February, the Democrats rammed the Stimulus Bill through Congress, moving so quickly that they voted on the bill before anyone could even read the final version. Today, they’re at it again. Like last time, this bill is their cap and trade program which we know will kill jobs and cost you a lot […]

Remember how the President wasn’t going to raise taxes on anyone except those top hat-wearing, monocle-twirling rich people who live up there in Park Place and Boardwalk? Yeah, well, what size top hat do you wear? The Obama administration is set to announce Tuesday what will amount to a sweeping revision to auto-emission and fuel-economy […]

I really like Ed Driscoll, though I’ve never met the man. He’s generous with his links, a smart and very clever blogger, and he rocks a fedora like few since Bogey himself. So when he sent me the link to his newest video over at Pajamas Media and told me that it was filmed in […]
