Obamessiah upstarts new industry: climate change fear

In a four-minute video message to Governor Schwarzenegger's Global Climate Summit yesterday, Obama made some stark claims about the state of the environment, and his apparent ability to direct the country and its resources to overpower God regarding the climate.

Here are some of the excerpts:

"My presidency...will create millions of new jobs in the process."

Hmmm...millions, eh? You mean there will be more people presumably worldwide tacking climate change than there are lawyers in the U.S.? (There are 1.1M lawyers in the U.S. as of last year). That's almost hard to fathom.

"That will start with a federal cap-and-trade system. We'll establish strong annual targets..."

Did you catch that? That means TAX INCREASE. I're saying, "What?!? I didn't hear that!" Let me explain. In order to be in compliance with what is essentially the Kyoto Protocol, which is what this is really all about, we would have to open a market to buy and sell emissions cap allowances, hence the name "cap-and-trade"...this will have an impact on both businesses who output high levels of greenhouse gases AND consumers (raise your hand if you drive an SUV). Check out the latest bill in Congress to get a sense of what I'm talking about. It was killed back in June of this year because of fear it would cripple the economy. The economy IS crippled, and Obamessiah wants to press forward at this juncture? Buyers remorse will soon set in for the voters who put him in office when their fuel taxes go up just to drive as we do today. Curious still is the fact that under "Opposition" in the wiki page for the Kyoto Protocol it is mentioned that opponents of Kyoto argue that this is merely a mechanism to redistribute wealth under a global socialism initiative. Where have I heard that before?

Will Obama try to send God a tax bill when it is discovered that movement of the earth's tectonic plates releases far more oil into the ocean than any man-made disaster and that this happens regularly? Oh wait, the truth may interfere with the agenda, so we'll leave it to the media to ignore these sorts of annoying things others refer to as "facts."

"It will also help us transform our generating 5 million new green jobs that pay well and can't be outsourced." we're up to 5 million new jobs. Again, there are only 1.1M lawyers in the U.S. (or 1.2M plumbers if you prefer). Sounds great...of course they can't be outsourced because obviously this is a WORLDWIDE number, not a U.S.-only number. You'd think he made this announcement sitting side-straddle on a unicorn!

I think it's safe to assume that Obama will be supporting reinstating the drilling ban...enjoy the low gas prices as they won't last.
