Obama Admits He Will Make Energy Costs "Skyrocket"
There's more to Obama's energy plan than bankrupting coal power plants. He also intends to make energy prices "skyrocket":
The money quote:
Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.
The ostensible point is to save the polar bears from the nonexistent global warming hoax. Considering that it hasn't gotten any warmer for 10 years now, chances are good the plan will succeed. More to the actual point, it may also succeed in causing an economic crisis severe enough to enable The One & Co. to give us a hard push toward Soviet-style economic "fairness."

I hope my fellow Pennsylvanians are listening to this guy. His anti-gun policies and plans to practically kill the coal industry should alarm them. I really hope they wake up and get out the vote for McCain. I know too many people who vote Democrat for no apparent reason other than their parents did.

Ugh. How people can consider voting for this douchebag is beyond me. Every time he opens his mouth to pontificate on economics he reveals what a clueless ideologue he is. And yet Democrats and leftists manage to convince themselves - and try to convince others - he's the economy's best shot at recovering from the "failed" policies of the Bush administration. Hey, we need to fix this mess we made in the housing market by forcing lenders to issue loans to subprime borrowers and ripping the bottom out of the broader economy; let's fix that by pushing energy prices through the roof and raising taxes to make it all fair for everyone!11!!
/Being a liberal leftist and having anything close to a working knowledge are mutually exclusive concepts

Hey, since Obama is going to win, why don't you red states just separate and form your own country. You could call it Doucheland to honour NAZI heritage.

Of course, the Dear Leader must already have a 5-year Plan to deal with the huge increase of CO2 emissions under an inefficient, low technology, subsistence-level Soviet-style economy...
Between 1990 and 1995, CO2 emissions in Germany declined by approximately 13 percent due to the collapse of heavy industries in former East Germany.
(i.e. CO2 emissions were huge in East Germany during Soviet times)

You can always count on the liberals to 'keep it classy'. [/sarcasm]

You can also always count on them to revert to childish insults when they can't defend their Obamassiah.

What scares me the most about articles like this is that there is to much time grabbing soundbites out of context and no real insight of any value.
It seems the problem with blogging is the overall lack of thought.
I did find one blog that I like.
Now I challenge anyone to find anything written on there.

Obamabots think Obama will give them discounted energy like Hugo Chavez and tax the rich to pay for it.

What exactly does Obama mean when he will "establish a national security army"? He does not mean the National Guard you know. Does he want a KGB type organization whose job is to spy on the citizens who oppose him? Reminds you of Russia or the SS that Germany formed. We all know what their primary duties were. The Obamanation is a very dangerous man. You vote for him at your peril. With him in the White House and a democrat congress and senate to enforce his policies we are screwed.

"Hey, since Obama is going to win, why don't you red states just separate and form your own country. You could call it Doucheland to honour NAZI heritage."
The Nazi party was leftist and had policies that wouldn't be out of place on the Democratic party platform. If you're going to insult someone at least make it make sense.

Micheal Steele said on FOX last night, "Wake up America and pull the Kool-aid IV out of your arm. He is telling you in his own words what he wants to do."
Barrack not only wants to spread Joe the Plumbers wealth around, he wants to spread America's wealth around. He will tax Americans "carbon credit" and send that wealth to third world countries. Buying there carbon credits.
This will not help those countries any more than Lyndon Johnson's welfare plan ended poverty in the U.S.
MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON US.
VOTE FOR CAPITALISM! THE HOPE OF THE WORLD!

I love this web-sight! ...It tells you right there at the top what it's all about MOONBATTERY ...well, everyone, no mater how small-minded, needs a place to be heard... even MOONBATS ...and ....here we are!
Obviously, you all need something to hate and fear, otherwise, what else would you do with those days full of grey emptiness? Even though you all probably have plenty of houses, Hummers, toys, guns and money, the American Dream of wealth and power leaves you feeling dead inside. You need more stimulation! You crave meaning! Nothing like a good dose of fear and hate to energize the body, prop up that ego and distract you from the fact that even though you have most everything you thought you wanted ...something is still missing.... ...And its all those damn Liberals fault who are standing in your way and keeping you from... what is it exactly again you wont be getting enough of that you would have had with Cheney basically running the show ? ... sorry ....I got lost barking at the moon....
...and by the way, if you believe global warming is real and is caused largely by burning fossil fuels, Obama is saying the right things... what good is a economy if we wreck the earth?
Of course... who believes such nonsense. We all know if we just prey to that man up in the clouds and drink his sons blood occasionally in communion and don't "covet thy" (OK Jesus was just kidding about the covet) ...he wont let it happen. I wonder what else Jesus was kidding around about... especially that silly sermon on the mount stuff... ok... I'm starting to bark again... got to get to work

Is it just me, or are the trolls (who really need to take a course in basic spelling... "sight", "prey", lol) inordinately thicker this last week or so? What's up with that? Maybe they're afraid of something.
On the other hand, if Oblabla wins, I hope someone is archiving all of these snide remarks so that in 3 1/2 years, when our country is deep in the toilet, we'll at least have the satisfaction of saying "We told you so."

"We can't drive our SUVs and, you know, eat as much as we want and keep our homes on, you know, 72 degrees at all times, whether we're living in the desert or we're living in the tundra, and then just expect every other country is going to say OK, you know, you guys go ahead keep on using 25 percent of the world's energy, even though you only account for 3 percent of the population, and we'll be fine."
It sounds like Obama wants us to be in a permanent state of recession, so we stop consuming so many of Gaia's precious resources.

Tell me this, JOHN (and the other moonbats who come here to spew hate): HOW will we power those millions of "green" ELECTRIC cars you demand we have after Obama has taxed our power plants out of existance?

I think it was my fault the new regime supporters are thicker this week. I posted one of your articles on facebook, where I have about 600 friends; I'm 22 and attend the University of North Carolina, where freedom of expression is met with sheer hatred...sorry about that.
