It’s the Friday before the most important election in our life time. People are tense. They are rightfully worried about the future of our nation. The pundits all agree that this election is too close to call. Now, I am one who has believed for some time that there are no undecided voters. That has to be a myth. The choice that voters have to make is between two totally different directions for our country. Obama offers no hope and Romney offers some hope. So, in my opinion, the election is already decided. We just won’t know the results until next Wednesday. With that in mind, it was my intention today to lighten things up a little to relieve some of the tension you are feeling. I was going to ask you to watch this video I hijacked from Frankenstein Government that explains the debt crisis we are facing in terms that even a child could understand.
Then I was going to suggest that you pass this video on to someone you know is planning to vote for Obama on the off-chance that the message might finally get through to them that America can not survive four more years of Obama. Then I was going to say “Oops! We got a problem. You can’t fix stupid, can you?” And then I was going to leave you with this cartoon I snatched from Blue’s Blog
And, that, my friends, was going to be the end of today’s post. But, you know what happens to the best laid plans of mice and men. I came across an article that proves that the above cartoon is no joke. It is deadly serious.
What was the one stupid idea that Barack Obama had when he took office in 2009 that he couldn’t even get passed by his Democratic super majority in both Houses of Congress? Cap and Trade. Now, nearly four years later, with all the disastrous evidence from countries like England and some European countries that passed carbon tax laws, you would think that not even our Floppy Eared Dunce of a president would go anywhere near a carbon tax. But, noooo! Apparently there really is no cure for stupid.
From Fox News we learn:
A major tax study currently being sponsored by the U.S. Treasury will give environmental activists a powerful new weapon in their campaign to alter the entire American economic and social landscape in the name of halting “climate change”—including the possible levying of new carbon taxes.
Under the bland title of Effects of Provisions in the Internal Revenue Code on Greenhouse Gas Emissions, the $1.5 million study is being carried out under the auspices of the National Academy of Science (NAS). Originally planned to take two years, the ambitious project aims to take an inventory of the U.S. tax code in terms of the effects of its most important provisions on the emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions—a huge and complicated exercise in environmental and economic modelling.
According to the article, the environmental activists see this study as a powerful new weapon in their battle against global warming no matter who wins the election. Their logic is simple (stupid). The next congress will be under a lot of pressure to reduce the deficits. To reduce the deficits, our nation will need more revenue. And, how better to increase revenues that to hang a great big anchor around the necks of those who will be trying to grow the economy and tell them to try harder.
I rest my case. You can’t fix stupid!
Well, now you know what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
