Cap and Trade is a Bad Idea * Saul

Cap and Trade is a Bad Idea

March 22nd, 2009 by Saul Anuzis

In a Detroit News Editorial they point out that ever liberal Senator Carl Levin understands the significant impact a politically motivated Cap and Trade bill would have on our country.  This is bad public policy and just another attempt to increase the size and scope of government.

Legislation as controversial as cap-and-trade should receive a lengthy public airing, not be slipped inside a larger bill and rushed through as if it were just another piece of congressional pork.

This is an issue that will have a huge impact on all of us…pay attention!


The process of deception by hiding a piece of major legislation in bills considered to not need the meeting of a filibuster rule should be held either unlawful by common law understanding or to violate the filibuster law and demand a walkout by congress for such conduct.  Better yet, consider it a suspension of all the imposed rules and let the filibuster procedure of taking the floor and holding it be instituted, even if by full pledged resistance.  It is time for Washington to grow up and stop frauding the people.

WARNING!!!Obama's civilian army coming? already passed the House!

House adopts plan for 'volunteer' corps
Also requires new evaluation of 'mandatory' service for all

The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a plan to set up a new "volunteer corps" and consider whether "a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people" should be developed.

The legislation also refers to "uniforms" that would be worn by the "volunteers" and the "need" for a "public service academy, a 4-year institution" to "focus on training" future "public sector leaders." The training, apparently, would occur at "campuses."

The vote yesterday came on H.R. 1388, which reauthorizes through 2014 the National and Community Service Act of 1990 and the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973, acts that originally, among other programs, funded the AmeriCorps and the National Senior Service Corps.

It not only reauthorizes the programs, but also includes "new programs and studies" and is expected to be funded with an allocation of $6 billion over the next five years, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Many, however, are raising concerns that the program, which is intended to include 250,000 "volunteers," is the beginning of what President Obama called his "National Civilian Security Force" in a speech last year in which he urged creating an organization as big and well-funded as the U.S. military. He has declined since then to elaborate.

WND reported when a copy of the speech provided online apparently was edited to exclude Obama's specific references to the new force.

The video of his statements is posted here: ...

>>>The new bill specifically references the possibilities "if all individuals in the United States were expected to perform national service or were required to perform a certain amount of national service."

Such new requirements perhaps, the legislation notes, "would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds."

No one, apparently with the exception of infants, would be excluded:

"The means to develop awareness of national service and volunteer opportunities at a young age by creating, expanding, and promoting service options for elementary and secondary school students, through service learning or other means, and by raising awareness of existing incentives."

According to a report by Canada Free Press, "'volunteerism' that kept America running since the days of its founding" would be "wiped out with the stroke of a pen."

"It becomes forced labor and like the practice of another era, presses American citizens of all ages and creeds, unknowingly into military service," the commentary said.

"On paper, H.R. 1388 is the 'Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act'; the more innocuous sounding 'The Give Act,' for short.

"The Give Act puts the finishing touches to Public Allies New Leadership for New Times, modeled after Saul Alinsky's 'Peoples Organizations' and operating under Michelle Obama," the commentary said. ...


my comment:

Does this remind you of  history under the Hitler Regime, where the children were indoctrinated?  This is very dangerous and not a needed program whatsoever.  We need jobs, not indoctrination programs and enforcement.  I can hear those boots acoming, they marching down the street, sashes swung shut lights turned off, no one is home.  Them boots are jacking down the street.

While we watch Obama dance on Leno and the congress act like deadwood, under the table they are slipping in by the shadow of toleration legislative conduct, the house has already passed this expansion of the ACORN and the Senate is fine-tuning their fascist part for it.  Wow, what days we are witnessing.  The world is watching in fear and trepidation, hoping we the people wake up.

one world currency-China backs talks on dollar as reserve -Russian source

Amazing how this is unfolding so quickly.  This article went on to say that it would take 30 years to implement such a proposal.  That may be a bit naive, as my inclination is that this one world order crowd has it mapped out to happen overnight, when the stage is set up(thank you bailouts, thank you free trade without tax structure change).  The shadow knows, don't you ?

China backs talks on dollar as reserve -Russian source

Thu Mar 19, 2009 11:24am EDT

...Calls for a rethink of the dollar's status as world's sole benchmark currency come amid concerns about its long-term value as the U.S. Federal Reserve moved to pump more than a trillion dollars of new cash into the ailing economy late Wednesday.

Russia met representatives of China, India and Brazil ahead of the G20 finance ministers meeting last week, as the big emerging powers seek to up their influence on decisionmaking globally. Their first ever joint communique did not mention a new currency but the source said the issue was discussed.

"They (China) did not formally put forward their position for the G20 summit but unofficially they had distributed their paper regarding the same ideas (the need for the new currency)," the source told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The source said the Chinese paper envisaged the International Monetary Fund's Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) being first assigned a role of a clearing currency on some transactions and then gradually becoming the main global reserve currency. "They said that the role of reserve currency should be given to SDR," the source said.

A U.N. panel of experts is also looking at using expanded SDRs, originally created by the International Monetary Fund in 1969, but now used mainly as an accounting unit within similar organisations as a new reserve currency instead of the dollar.

Currency specialist Avinash Persaud, a member of the U.N. panel, told a Reuters Funds Summit on Wednesday that the proposal was to create something like the old Ecu, or European currency unit, that was a hard-traded, weighted basket.

The SDR and the old Ecu are essentially combinations of currencies, weighted to a constituent's economic clout, which can be valued against other currencies and against those inside the basket.

The Russian source said Moscow was aware that the emergence of the new global currency would not happen overnight and said its goal was to initiate a discussion about it at the G20 summit in London on April 2.

The source said that India did not object to the discussion but was not prepared to take the lead. The source said South Korea and South Africa backed the idea, while developed nations were not "allergic" to it.

"We are not waiting for everyone to say: 'How beautifully it has all been formulated, let's subscribe to it'," the source said. "The main idea is to start a discussion about it."

Russia holds about half of its reserves, the world's third-largest, in dollars, with the rest in euros and pounds. Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has called on reserve currency issuers to show more financial discipline....

ramblings of the coming times

If I had a nickel in my pocket to buy some chewing gum, it would be the sixties.  If I had a dollar in my pocket to buy that gum, it will be 2012.
How fast will this hyperinflation take over our lives?  The last cost of living processed stated that the price index stayed flat.  Right.  My local party store owner says that he used to go three months without checking wholesale cost, now he has to adjust retail pricing weekly. 
Sure milk went down, but the USDA is subsidizing it to keep us from losing too many dairies, for if that happened, milk will go out of sight.  Wrong.  We are about to experience the greatest flimflam ever done by a Government on it's people. 
You can only stretch that rubberband so far before it breaks and then everything comes crashing down at a high velocity.  Land and commodities folks, land and commodities.

wisdom to question more and judge less.

Curtis Hier said:
On Intellectual Redneck the other day, the message of the day was: "False prophets have all the answers. People of real faith have all the questions. " Today's message is quite different.

A good Christian always questions, but doesn't judge lest he be judged. Let's not judge Steele, but get him to question more. Rush did that in his own rushed way.

I'm hoping Huck will always have the wisdom to question more and judge less. He will out debate Romney every time. I know. I teach a debate class at my school.
R. George Dunn said:
Curtis, that is not a true quote. Yes, false prophets can be as you say, but true prophets are led by the Spirit and it does not question, it knows. But your also right, a good Christian, a good citizen questions everything but has faith in that unseen. For Michael Steele, he has just spent most of his life being a yes man to the good ole boy system that has corrupted our GOP and for him to suddenly shed that skin to be the true conservative under pressure cooker interviews is hard. He will get his sealegs or next year will be a new one. As to Rush, if you have not listened to him for a period of time, you will certainly not have a clear understanding of what he says or means. Yes, there is times when he is catering the wrong political animal within our party, but on the whole he is speaking the right thing. As to Rush being crude and rude, he has nothing on the Main stream Left Media.
