Wild and Scenic Factories?

To give you an idea about what tough issues Congress is tackling this week, here’s one resolution we’re discussing that sums it up:

H.Res. 984 - Expressing support for the designation of July 26, 2008 as "National Day of the Cowboy" (Sponsored by Rep. Giffords / Oversight and Government Reform Committee)

Another week, and the Democrats still aren't addressing the nation’s energy concerns by bringing any legislation to the floor to help struggling Americans - unless you consider H.R. 415 an energy policy:

H.R. 415
- To amend the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act to designate segments of the Taunton River in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a component of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers (Structured Rule) (Sponsored by Rep. Frank / Natural Resources Committee)

Take a look at this picture at let me know if this looks wild and scenic to you:


The Democrats are designating this simply to block the construction of a Liquified Natural Gas Facility. Never mind that right across the river is a Coal Power Plant already in use. Once again, the Democrats are doing everything in their power to stop production of American Energy.
