Paul Krugman has been acting odd lately. Mainly on the matter of Climate Change and Cap and Trade. It almost seems like he is channeling Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, when he debated whether;
A. All Australians should be stripped of citizenship and then allowed to regain it upon swearing fealty to the Church of Global Warming
B. The Government should ask all citizens to swear fealty to the Church of Global Warming, and strip the citizenship of those who refuse.
I mention this, because as RedState recently reported that Paul Krugman has declared me to be a “Traitor to the Planet” for opposing Cap and Trade. This after he himself admitted that HR 2454 would not create new jobs.
Thank you, Mr. Krugman, for at least admitting that much. Though I do resent being called a traitor, even if it does further prove my point that America is becoming a Theocracy dedicated to the Church of Global Warming. Hell, California is already issuing Gorans instead of Gideon Bibles in the Hotel Rooms.
Now, before I go any further, I would like to re-iterate the questions asked by The Pirate’s Cove of those who voted Yes on HR 2454.
- Did you read the bill, including the 300 page 0309 hour Romeo ammendment? If so, did you understand it all?
- Will you follow the principles behind HR 2454, even if it doesn’t pass muster in the Senate?
- If it passes the Senate, and POTUS signs it into law, who will you blame when the costs of energy “Necessarily skyrocket?” What about Taxes?
- What is your endgame with HR 2454? What do you plan on actually doing with this bill?
Meanwhile, the National Black Chamber of Congress did a study which found that Cap and Trade would cost the United States 2.5 million jobs each year. That is a lot of jobs, and a massive hit to the Economy. This trend would last until 2030 minimum. And I ask you, how could we recover from that. We are looking at high double digit unemployment, far above the Great Depression, and worse then the Weimar Republic. And you remember what came next there…
