TAX EEEEVIIIIILLLL CARBON!

 

In a 2007 decision The Supreme Court of the Unites States declared the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a pollutant.  Under broad definitions It could be classified  as such. In  2014 the SCOTUS reaffirmed this decision but did pull the EPA’s reins back a little.

But can one make money from Climate Change? Of course.

Tax the shit out of it.

About 60 people gathered at the Old Labor Hall in Barre on Tuesday for a presentation, “Everyone’s Economic Opportunity in Climate Action, ” to discuss strategies for slowing down climate change and making money in the process.

Sponsored by Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility and Vermont Natural Resources Council, the proceedings were moderated by Daniel Barlow, public policy manager for VBSR.

Of course it all starts with GOVERMENT.

Barlow explained the forum is aimed at bolstering planned legislative action to create a “carbon-pricing mechanism.”

Several bills have been introduced, including:

— H.394, an act relating to a carbon tax and cap and a trade study in the Joint Fiscal Office.

— H.531, relating to a carbon pollution fee in Vermont.

— H.532, relating to replacing statewide education tax revenue with a fee on carbon tax pollution.

— H.533, relating to eliminating Vermont’s sales and use tax and replacing it with a carbon fee on corporations.

The meeting raised the point that a carbon tax could help people with limited means.

“Low-income Vermonters are especially at risk due to climate change,” Barlow said. Therefore, he said, finding ways to leverage the situation into job growth is essential.

At least 19,000 Vermonters work in fields related to energy efficiency, such as Green Mountain Power employees, lawyers who represent energy efficiency, wind and solar developers, and wind and solar power manufacturing and installation, Barlow said in a telephone interview prior to the event.

The “clean energy economy” has grown while other sectors are struggling, he said.

Well it would stand to reason that the “clean energy economy” is growing when it’s subsidized by the government with other peoples money.

Where this all leads I have my guesses. It won’t make a difference in the grand scheme one way or the other. But people that have political power need to use it now and then.  For the greater good, of course.

 

 

 

What do some feminist have against Uncle Bernie?

Simply put it’s because he’s male.

Progressives came out in full force Thursday to denounce Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders as the headlining speaker at a convention organized by the Women’s March.

Feminists and their organizations blasted the Women’s Convention, a three-day event aimed a female liberation, for having Sanders speak on the opening night of the convention. Some women took to Twitter to voice their frustrations, while others rallied behind a petition calling for the immediate removal of Sanders.

Bernie has three big items going against him.  First he is a “man”, second he opposed Nurse Ratchet Hillary Clinton of the Democrat nomination. third he’s an old man.

Now Bernie did write some essays back in the early seventies about “rape fantasies” but one thing Bernie is not is a serial sexual assaulter.  Unlike former President Bill Clinton. Bill had the ultimate get out of jail free card, his personal protection of abortion rights endeared him so much to progressive leftist women that author Nina Burleigh has this to say back in 1998

In a 1998 essay for Mirabella, Burleigh described an occasion aboard Air Force One when she noticed President Bill Clinton apparently looking at her legs. The piece led to her being described as “the Ally McBeal of former White House reporters” by columnist Ellen Goodman. Approached by a Washington Post media reporter to discuss the Mirabella article, Burleigh stated, “I would be happy to give him a blowjob just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their Presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs.”[50][51] Referring to the comment in a 2007 piece for The Huffington Post, Burleigh wrote, “I said it (back in 1998, but a good quote has eternal life) because I thought it was high time for someone to tweak the white, middle-aged beltway gang taking Clinton to task for sexual harassment. These men had neither the personal experience nor the credentials to know sexual harassment when they saw it, nor to give a good goddamn about it if they did. The insidious use of sexual harassment laws to bring down a president for his pro-female politics was the context in which I spoke.”[52]

Reading this today in 2017 after all the Harvey Weinstein revelations it is clear or should be clear to everyone that the holy sacrament of progressive women is abortion without restriction.  That certain women will willingly debase themselves to male power brokers and politicians who will use their power to protect that right. And if these same men use fear and intimidation to force themselves on the unwilling victims, and if these women speak out, well what do you expect from trailer park trash.  And none other then Hillary herself will be twisting the knife. Not all women are equal in the eyes of progressives, and collateral damage has to be expected.

Sexual assault is bad only when conservatives and republicans practice it.

But lets get back to dear Uncle Bernie.

Bernie’s progressive resume should be beyond question, and they are. Apparently the only real fly in the ointment is that they have Bernie opening the convention. A women by the name of Amanda H. Ashcraft has launched a petition to have him removed as opening speaker.

Optics are extremely important.  The Women’s Convention, in her goal of empowering and putting the voices of women on the front lines, should lead by example and have a woman open the convention.  The individual who kicks off an event often becomes the “face” of the event.  It is only right to have a woman’s face for the Women’s Conference.  Having a man’s face only continues the invisible presence, work, and voices of women.

Bernie will likely be a gentleman and offer to speak during the convention.  If only to preserve unity for the cause.

The keynote speaker will be non-other then dingbat Maxine Waters.

Perhaps they’ll all wear their “Pussy hats” again.

 

 

There was no mail at my house yesterday.

At first I thought that the mailman just hadn’t shown up.

Then It dawned on me that yesterday was Columbus day.  You remember that murdering white European who came to the Americas and brought nothing but death and despair to all the indigenous people of the Americas. And that despair is with them to this day. At least that is what they tell us.

Columbus is not politically correct.

So I was surprised that the Federal Government was still observing it. But it does mean a day off.

So many have stated that Columbus day should be abolished and replaced with Indigenous Peoples Day.

Well why not.

Witches against Trump

Witches rely on illusion and magic spells which is one reason the “left” loves them and wants to utilize their talents.

 

 

 

It’s in all probability that no one will be surprised that the “witch” community was thoroughly melted away after a bucket of cold water was dumped on them during the last Presidential election. After all, one of their own was going to be President of the United States. The swarm of flying monkeys news media was tasked to spread   the poison narrative that the election was in the bag.

Well Witches were not going to take this lying down so they have decided to stir the cauldron against Trump.

 

The Left ridicules Christianity, embraces the occult.

 

Thankfully a house landed on her last November.

“Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsburg claims that ‘sexism’ played a role in the 2016 election. My question is, how does she know this? How does she know for sure Hillary didn’t lose the election because she’s a lying scrunt with all of the appeal of a bed sore who is up to her ears in corruption and that people are basically sick of her, hate her guts, and just wish she’d go away?”

Even the “Huffpost” thought it was CRAP!

It certainly wasn’t  Scottish.

Via “Truth Revolt”

The Huffington Post isn’t known for its objectivity, but its published review of Darling of the Left Hillary Clinton’s book What Happened seems poised to change that. Posted to the Progressive site on Wednesday, Sam Kriss’s critique paints a surprisingly scathing portrait of a Marxist’s meltdown after a barely-missed chance to be President of the People’s Republic of the United States, and of her refusal to write honestly about it.

Kriss sets the tone of the piece with a not-exactly-complimentary title and tagline: “What Should Have Happened In Hillary Clinton’s Useless Book—  An artless and inauthentic memoir, written by the absence of Clinton.” Ouch.

 

When an ultra lib website trashes your book maybe it’s time for the Yoko Ono of politics to shut up go away and retire.

Right!! That’s not going to happen.

We all remember this:

 

Well, Hillary is going to be tormenting blessing us with her presence until the day comes when she’s loaded horizontally in the back.

WILLISTON — Vermont visionary David Blittersdorf has bad news and good news

The bad news, he says, is that the nation and world will run out of oil and face catastrophic collapse at local, national and global levels. The good news is that a combination of conservation and renewable energy sources can avert a crisis, but it will require a concerted effort — and commitment — to do so.

Blittersdorf’s latest pitch on the renewal energy front is to bring back passenger rail service in central Vermont with 1950s-era self-propelled diesel rail cars. It’s his latest salvo that has included pioneering progress in wind and solar energy programs in the state. For Blittersdorf, the writing is on the wall, but he hopes to help rewrite the dismal history of the future.

More than once, he described his plan as “Back to the Future” that will transform the way Vermonters travel while helping to cut the state’s dependence on fossil fuels and combat climate change in an effort to become 90 percent net-zero carbon free by 2050…..

————————————————————————————————————————-

He said “Peak Oil” — when demand exceeded supply — occurred in 2007, only delayed by the fracking of oil and gas for another 10-15 years, with an exponential increase in carbon emissions and untold environmental damage.

————————————————————————————————————————-

IntheAmericanempireand where we think we are, we’re going down the other side… we don’t have the resources in the future that we think we have,” Blittersdorf said. “Everyone thinks we can grow into infinity forever. Sowe’resettingourselves upfor something really bad.

————————————————————————————————————————-

“We have to start somewhere, and the efficiency gain over getting people out of cars is we can be 50 to 100 times more efficient, so we’ll cut emissions immediately, and we can do it as a reasonable price. That’s key,” Blittersdorf said.

Here is a rebuttal..

From the Ethan Allen Institute.

It is a canon of Green theology that irresponsible, selfish Americans must be taxed or subsidized out of their personal vehicles and into a group carriage like a rail car, all to save the planet from the menace of global warming.

Guess who is behind the new push for commuter rail? Mr. Green enterprise himself,  VPIRG donor David “Wind Farm” Blittersdorf. He laid out $6 million for some reconditioned rail cars from Dallas in the hope of marrying them with the state owned rail lines and stations, to whisk commuters to Burlington from Rutland and maybe Montpelier.

And here’s the inevitable kicker: Blittersdorf “readily acknowledged that he won’t get this project rolling without public or private subsidies, or both. He imagines that some of Vermont’s large employers such as UVM, Global Foundries and state government will subsidize the trains in exchange for free transit for their employees.”

Oh, really? Are Vermonters dumb enough to fall for this costly foolishness all over again?

Let me state one thing from the beginning…I love trains/railroads.  As a kid I would hear a train whistle in the distance. I would get on my bike and race down to the bridge that went over the tracks. When I would first see the head light from the locomotive then hear it’s roar I would get tense from excitement. I would wave to the engineer and he would wave back.  I would listen to the click-ity clack of the wheels and try to count the freight cars. I would then wave at the guys in the caboose (yes..it was a long time ago).

Commuter trains certainly have there place…in large populated urban centers.  of which Vermont is not one…yet.  Perhaps if we only allow another 200,000 refugees from the middle east and central America to come to Vermont for a better life, commuter trains will be a much positive asset.

When Mr. Blittersdorf and the state of Vermont work out the details I and I’m sure many others will have to check it out and take a ride just for the joy of riding the rails. And I’m sure more then a few will utilize it for regular commuting.

But I certainly doubt that it’d going to break even cost wise. And Vermont  taxpayers will be forced to watch public money used to subsidize a religion, the church of climate change.

But this is what “Progressives” consider progress.

 

 

 

A comment from Muldoon Via Ace of Spades

 

Can Taxpayers have dreams too?

 

338 I’m going to carry this forward from an earlier thread.

Welcome one of your newest fellow citizens. Let’s say just for the sake of discussion that this is a hypothetical scenario:

46 year old woman. Gets pregnant. No father listed on birth certificate. Unemployed, gets no prenatal care, presents to hospital in labor, baby born slightly premature and very small size. Has Down syndrome. Has significant medical abnormalities. Will probably be hospitalized for weeks to months in intensive care. May need major surgery. Mother speaks not a word of English. Immigration status? Who knows, not allowed to ask. Mom on Medicaid. Baby on Medicaid.

Where is the responsibility of this woman who is old enough to know better? Where is the responsibility of the father who gets his pleasure with no skin in the game? Where is the responsibility of this mother’s nation of origin who outsourced her dependency onto us? Where is the concern from our politicians for the taxpayers, the hardworking citizens of this country who are going to pay for this child’s medical care for years to come? Where is a simple thank you America, for being kind hearted and generous. But no, the Dreamers have a dream. Screw the taxpayer and his/her dreams. Screw the future of the taxpayer’s child and his/her dreams. This woman and her child are entitled to the sweat of your brow, comrade!
