Carbon Tax On The Way Because of Cheap Oil?

January 7, 2015

You may recall Obama’s famous words,

“Under my plan, electricity rates would necessarily sky-rocket.”

That dream did come true only many on the East coast are now thinking it’s more like a nightmare in the midst of polar vortex 2.0. Well now the libs are PO’d with the falling oil prices and gas below $2 per gallon in 40% of the country. You just cannot please these people! According to The Daily Caller, politicians and activists (you know the university types) are now pushing for higher fuel taxes.

Larry Summers, former White House economic adviser is all giddy for an opportunity to stick it to Americans. He’s pushing for a $25/ton carbon tax that would raise more than $1 trillion over the next decade. This so they can turn around and waste it on what? Spying on US citizens? Giving carte blanche to illegal immigrants? Or maybe more buckets of cash to the Wall Street “too big to fail” banksters like the ones that just got toxic derivatives put under the FDIC umbrella (part of the $1.1 Trillion end of year CRomnibus bill passed) to the guaranteed detriment of taxpayers. And don’t forget that all western countries have now adopted “bail-in” legislation (confiscation of depositors’ money in bank failures like in Cyprus) as a result of the last G-20 meeting.

I guess they just like an excuse to go to war and if oil is too plentiful and prices are too low they’ve gotta take it out on hard working Americans.

Hasty Retreat -The Feds Got Caught

August 4, 2009

I’ll bet you didn’t see this tasty tidbit anywhere in the mainstream media, but there’s more than a few reasons NOT to extend the CASH FOR CLUNKERS program. Never mind that it’s just another bailout. You know we’re all sick of those -until it’s something we want.

“Yeah, I was going to buy a car anyway. Mine gets crappy mileage so why not take a ‘free’ handout from the government?”

But what people don’t realize is the open sesame to blatant intrusion right into our own computers when accessing the CARS.gov website. This was not covered by mainstream media or  their blogs, but a ‘Constitutional Watchdog’ saw it when logging on to Cars.gov and reported it to Fox News. They went right to the White house to inquire about it and were told they were “re-working the language”, and then low and behold the CARS.gov access disclaimer disappeared completely from the Cars.gov website, begging the question, are they still accessing the info but not telling you? And what about the computers they already invaded before they got caught?

By the way, this program was so well thought out it was supposed to last through November and it ran out in less than a week! How’s that for government planning and accurate projections? Think Medicaid and Medicare, Health Care Reform and Cap & Trade and other government programs if you decide to accept government cost estimates as the real deal.

And what real good does it do American car companies? Did you know only 47% of the Cash For Clunkers trade-ins went for cars sold by Detroit’s Big-3? The rest went to foreign car makers.

But the most frightening thing about Cash For Clunkers is it gave the government a chance to wedge their way into your computers if you were a car dealer using the program or if you were a customer who’s data was entered into those computers. The Feds now have legal access to that information. Watch this video and see what I mean. THIS IS FRIGHTENING! It’s beyond frightening and America, you better wake up!

Aloha, “Mikie”
