The EPA has lost its way

Can we save the EPA before it's too late?



Americans need a watchdog for our environment. Sadly under the Obama administration, the EPA has become the favorite tool of politicians and partisan insiders seeking to control our economy and our daily lives with little concern for genuine environmentalism.

The global warming scare is the most dangerous propaganda campaign we have seen in decades.

Despite the absence of substantial real world evidence that productive human activity is warming the globe, the EPA has taken a radical step and classified carbon dioxide as a pollutant. Because every business in the United States emits carbon dioxide in some form, every business can now be regulated by the EPA. Even the air we exhale, carbon dioxide, has been determined to be a pollutant by the EPA.

The EPA was founded to protect our environment and humanity from industrial abuse, but is now in the hands of extremists intent on using its powers to regulate our lives.

For almost 30 years, we've watched the EPA move away from protecting Americans from rivers of fire from industrial pollution or true cancer-causing particulates in our water. Today, the EPA seeks to stretch its legislative mandates to control everything we do.

The underhanded design of the bureaucrats to take over the American economy should alarm us all.

In fact, Americans were warned about their designs when Obama told us during his presidential campaign that we "can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say okay. That's not leadership. That's not going to happen."

Obama is a Jackass



The Obama administration plans to raise the cost of all goods, services and fuels to American consumers through increased taxes on energy and basic goods that will fund a massive increase in the size and cost of government. In fact, Obama promised economic hardship when he said, "under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket."

The EPA's goals under the Obama administration are clear and they are dangerous.




It's time to end the obama error.

I hope they get it through, I've been secretly saving carbon credits for the past 20 years. I have about 18,000 of them in the basement. When they hit 120 I'm going to sell.

This is why one should never vote for a Democrat. They'd also tax the tooth fairy and Santa if they could find them.

The private sector created 165,000 jobs in July. Q2 profits are down and projected to go lower during the second half of the year.

This clown must live in a tree. I can't believe people would send this type of brainless ashole to Washington. A carbon tax??????? Give me a break.

Great news again from the party that uses the A$$ as their mascot.
What happened to that "lazer focus" on jobs?
According to CNBC, hardly a pro-GOP org, look at the real unemployment rate:
http://www.cnbc.com/id/48468748
In Harry Reid's state it is OVER 20%!!!!
This bill will do WONDERS to raise electric rates, pass on big time costs to consumers and drive the US further into depression.
THROW THESE STINKING DemocRATS OUT!!!
Face it people, the BOZO in the White House has never had or created a job in his life and IT SHOWS. Flush that TURD in November.
To paraphrase Einstein:
One definition of insanity is to vote for the same failure Obama again and expect a different result.

OBAMA'S secretaries of TRANSPORTATION (LaHood) and ENERGY (Chu) have BOTH STATED with would like to see gasoline prices INCREASE to the level of Europe's prices.

What's the price of fuel in Europe?...oh, just $7-$8 a LITER!

In England, they also have an $8 a DAY CONGESTION TAX-if you decide to drive YOUR personal vehicle in the city, YOU will be charged that ADDITIONAL TAX.

And guess who else has implemented that TAX: OBAMA'S former Chief of Staff and now Mayor of Chicago, Rahm 'can't control the crime' Emanuel.

READ IT:
http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2011-11-08...

AND Obama's Secretary of State Ray LaHood wants to TAX YOU for every mile YOU TRAVEL in YOUR PERSONAL vehicle-that's called VMT-Vehicle Miles Traveled!Get familiar with that terminology because it WILL be implemented under a 2nd Obama term.
http://washingtonindependent.com/30997/a-prem...
In California they are considering experimenting with it.

It's the "You didn't build that road, so PAY for EVERY MILE YOU drive on it" Obama mantra.

Wake UP, voting Americans! Are you deaf and blind? Do you want MORE TAXATION?

OUT with DEMONcRATS in 2012!

DemoNcRats ARE ACTUALLY TELLING Americans what they are planning: high gas prices (they sure are stopping energy production and exploration in the USA-which WOULD reduce UNemployment and make America INDEPENDENT of foreign energy)

and PENALIZE you for driving your OWN private vehicle.

WAKE UP, SAVE the USA. OUT WITH ALL DEMOCRATS IN 2012! Every single, solitary one of them in NOvember

I just can't believe how monumentally stupid liberals really are. And these are supposed to educated people. All this emission crap is, is another job killing wealth distribution scheme that will only help to destroy what little is left of the American economy.
