Methane Deceptions

Here's the clincher in this web of deceit...if the CAGW cartel had any integrity, they would be promoting the development and implementation of new nuclear power, which would increase global energy availability safely, cleanly, economically. That this is not going on is testament to the totally political landscape of "Energy Policy". As long as this ridiculous situation persists, we will slide further down the rat hole of "human-induced energy insecurity".
Peak Oil!!!! .....ahhhh, never mind.

Kill the Obamacare Cadillac Tax Now

Killing the Cadillac Tax is just another reduction in the unrealistic and predatory Obamacare "funding mechanism"--meant to make it cost "less than the Iraq war". Of course its already been delayed illegally by the regime for political reasons. Since America can't afford all this largesse in the first place, reducing the compensating revenue is just worsening the disaster. If the sissy GOP will get over the inevitable media and taker pushback, they should just get on with repealing the whole magilla (Obamacare).

Exploiting the Presidential Veto

First and foremost, no CR beyond January. Let's have an ACTUAL BUDGET. Are you listening, Paul? The core problem with Obamacare, beyond its total structural destructiveness, is it perpetuates the misinterpretation of the Commerce Clause...it is fundamentally unconstitutional. ...as are many of the President's EOs that attempt to make the garbage palatable. Somehow the new GOP congress needs to grow a pair and challenge the nullification of the constitution. WE WILL HELP YOU.
Bumper Sticker OBAMA: SHUT IT
"Honesty"? Honestly? ARROGANCE. This cretin would be surprising, but for his never-had-a-real-job, plotting-in-the-oval-office progressive wrong-headedness. Let them panic, let him spit. Whatever.
Dam! You are soo far offbase. Lissen, you need to join the 90+% of scientists writing peer-reviewed papers that all agree that we're gonna have warming. Whatsa matta? ....need a grant or something??

Taxing Online a Matter of Fairness?

For all of you dissing Paul, I note that he didn't really take a position on this issue. ...which is ridiculous. Maybe he really does support the money grab. The only thing I can think of that might justify this move (MIGHT) is that such a large percentage of brick-and-mortar sales taxes have been siphoned off by online sales. However, we do need to starve the beast. However, lack of sales tax is a huge incentive for online sales, who also incur shipping. However, the largest online sales outfits (Amazon, etc.) already pay sales tax based on their brick-and-mortar presences (warehouses in the case of Amazon). Thus, the biggest HOWEVER is that this is just more cronyism, the large fish trying to eat the small fish who can't afford to pay taxes in a zillion jurisdictions. If the justification supposedly is revenue for municipalities, reflect that most municipalities don't have a separate sales tax, and most sales taxes are collected by State governments.
I have experience with one American automaker, and I suspect that their situation is similar in the others. The automakers supporting this regulatory tyranny primarily are avoiding dealership ill-will. The dealers can cause major headache for the factory if they are unhappy. In years past, attempts were made to bypass the dealer network for several reasons, chief among them--more competitive pricing, and less dependence on individual dealer practices which often were damaging to brand image. These attempts ultimately were abandoned, where costs piled up trying to maintain dealer peace. (Perhaps there was some retail competence at issue, too) The dealer organizations are all powerful, and basically control their own regulation in most states. It's just another example of the fungus of political cronyism eating away at our whole society. How do you get politicians to act with integrity? I wish I knew. This problem is far more serious than their inveterate lying, which you can simply recognize ("their lips are moving").
