    Gulf Oil ‘SPILL’ – What A Lie
    http://rense.com/general90/spill.htm

    “Will it still be a spill when millions of people in Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida are losing consciousness from the stench in the air, that will not dissipate?

    Will people have to convulse and hemorrhage from their internal organs and lungs before the corporate media will show at least a modicum of truthfulness?

    First, the stench will be overwhelming and it won’t go away. The air itself will kill because crude oil is composed of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, hyrogensulfide, benzene, toluene, xylenes, ethlbenzene, and trimethylbenzene.

    According to the Federal Register and OSHA these are all extremely hazardous substances.

    Exposure can cause the following health effects: eye and skin irritation, narcoses, and/or chemical pneumonitis.

    High concentrations of hydrogen sulfide can cause headaches, dizziness, unconsciousness and/or death.

    More worrisome yet is hurricane season is coming. And a Gulf hurricane that hits any part of our Gulf Coast, this summer, could produce unheard of destruction, sickness, and death. ”

    …and will the cost of energy, transportation gas, cost of goods transported rise? Most assuredly part of the plan + cap and trade tax. Now who caused the pollution? We the people or government and corporations? Who should pay and be taxed? We the people or corporations? CORPORATIONS! …so the govt and corporations will stop creating poverty as well. And there is no man-made global warming causing pollution and poverty. Here’s a perfect example of who should pay the money they are trying to steal from “we the people” instead of the corporations. Cap n Trade = govt and corp BS. Just another bailout for corporations. They need to pay for their own mistakes. Maybe next time they won’t willingly make them!!

    For the love of money, power, control over others lives…and destroying the ecosystems of the earth in the process. How greed blinds.

    Cash Making Opportunities – The Beginning The working life is already tough enough, but the worries of being out of work was even tougher. The unsecured working environment have prompted me to search the internet for an alternative source of extra income so that I could learn how to Make Money Work for me and be Financially Independent.

    “The federal picture is so bleak because the Obama administration is the most fiscally irresponsible in the history of the U.S. I would imagine that he would be the intergalactic champion as well, if we could gather the data on deficits on other worlds. Obama has taken George W. Bush’s inattention to deficits and elevated it to an art form.

    The Obama administration has no shame, and is willing to abandon reason altogether to achieve its short-term political goals. Ronald Reagan ran up big deficits in part because he believed that his tax cuts would produce economic growth, and ultimately pay for themselves. He may well have been excessively optimistic about the merits of tax cuts, but at least he had a story.

    Obama has no story. Nobody believes that his unprecedented expansion of the welfare state will lead to enough economic growth. Nobody believes that it will pay for itself. Everyone understands that higher spending today begets higher spending tomorrow. That means that his economic strategy simply doesn’t add up.”

    Just 2 weeks left to sign up and read the book for free online.
    ..and speaking of the economy…here’s a quote from the book…

    “6. Unemployment rising. Every business in the world, big or small, is trying to reduce overhead. One of the quickest and easiest ways to do this is to reduce payroll liability by laying off employees.

    As of March 2009 the official unemployment rate is 8.5 percent. during the month, approximately 694,000 jobs were lost in the United States, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, that unemployment statistic does not count the unemployed people who haven’t looked for a job in thirty days, or those working part-time jobs while waiting for work. When you add those people into the official number,the real unemployment rate is 19.1 percent, according to http://www.shadowstats.com. During the Great Depression, unemployment reached 24 percent. At this rate, we will be there soon.”

    H.R. 2454 is a 1400-page promise to audit every aspect of your home and life under the guise of creating jobs, clean energy and a sustainable world.

      The bill states every home owner will receive an energy audit. What is a home energy audit? It is an intrusive visit made by the bureaucrats at the Home Energy Team or a similar group. They will examine and report the way you live your life directly to RESNET (Residential Energy Services Network) . Light fixtures, socket types, spas, hot tubs, windows, appliances, walls and roofs will all be under review. Energy tests will be conducted throughout your house. At the end of the visit you will receive a report and a rating. The report will focus on the changes you need to make and the rating is called a HERS rating (Home Energy Rating System). RESNET will perform the audits through authorized contractors. RESNET has adopted the Mortgage Industry National Home Energy Rating Standards. The standards set the national procedures for home energy ratings.

        Bills are designed to be unclear and open to much interpertation, this is why they have such contempt for the constitution, so that they can bend or make new rules where they see fit.

        I can think of so many way the government can push the market with this sort of power, very scary!

    A few attempts at this have happened in Canada luckily they have been shot down. I am afraid the pressure will mount now that its happening with our greatest trading partner.

    Green power generation is so far, an expensive proposition. But so was the car, the computer, the television and so on.

    If we want more green power, we need to incentivize green power generation, not penalize what we already have. Wind turbines, solar, any power generated through renewables should drive a transparent tax break in proportion to economic and environmental benefits. Smaller companies should be able to prosper, and the large power gen companies should not be able to drive them out, or be themselves disincented from producing green power.

    If carbon emissions are truly a pressing environmental problem, then fossil fuels should simply be taxed, as they are in Europe. This will lead to increased costs for power, increased consumer costs, more expensive gas, smaller cars but less environmental damage. The trade-offs should be clear, and the people allowed to vote on policies.

    What should NOT be done, is the enacting of a stupid and complex sheaf of laws that will benefit no one but Washington and Chicago cronies who will trade ‘carbon credits’ in a rising market, whilst regular Americans are bankrupted by exponentially increasing heat and A/C bills.

    I am not sure if cap and trade is the right way to go, but global warming is REAL. If you don’t believe me, see the movies “The 11th Hour” and “An Inconvenient Truth”, and go to blogs by people like Earth Policy Institute, StopGlobalWarming.com, Conservation International, Union of Concerned Scientists, Post Carbon Institute, Energy Bulletin, ClimateCrisis.net, etc. Both the public and the private sector need to work on reducing carbon emissions, both in this country and abroad. To solve this will require massive changes in the way in which we use energy, and reduce the amount of carbon emissions we are putting into the atmosphere.

    Also, there is a another energy issue that is even more important that you should care about, Ron Paul. That is “Peak Oil”. We may have peaked in world oil production back in 2005! If you don’t beleive me, read the blogs by people like James Howard Kunstler, The Oil Drum, Richard Heinberg, Life After The Oil Crash, Matthew Simmons, Colin Campbell, and others.

      Al Gore’s movie “An Inconvenient Truth” is as bogus as it gets!
      The experts are now saying the earth is cooling down until 2030!
      Stop believing the hype from these kind of people. We need
      (as a country) to wake up to this kind of BS.

    You need to delete “to solve them.” at the end. Ron Paul didn’t say that. The reason is that the government never solves problems.
