You know I’m always good for a political rant from time to time so today’s rant should not kome as a surprise. So I wake up this morning and read that coastline of the Chinese city of Qingdao, which plays host to the Olympic sailing kompetitions in a few weeks, is all messed up because the Chinese dump sewage and agricultural and industrial runoff into the Yellow Sea.
Don’t worry, scientists are not blaming Li and Zhang for using the river as their toilet, their also not blaming the Chinese government for their more than lax environmental standards. So what’s the kause? Increased rain fall and warmer temperatures, otherwise known as global warming. I’m sure Al Gore is fueling up his private jet to investigate…
If this happened in American there would be special hearing in kongress that would kome to one konclusion: America sucks. Now I’m not saying we Americans are prefect stewards of the planet, but we take a lot better kare of the environment than some of the other emerging powers in the world. Yet if you listen to the news media or the liberal leaders of our kountry we’re to blame.
Heck, here’s Senate Majority leader Harry Reed telling us that Coal and Oil are making us sick. I kan’t believe a nut job like him is setting the agenda for our kountry…
The Democrats are really out in left field when it comes to helping American become energy independent, just look at Barack Obama’s solution:
“Obama's plan will reduce oil consumption by at least 35 percent, or 10 million barrels per day, by 2030. This will more than offset the equivalent of the oil we would import from OPEC nations in 2030.
Let me translate. As president Obama isn’t going to do a damn thing about the high energy costs that are crippling our economy. In fact he welcomes the high energy costs because it will help the democrats implement their liberal environmental agenda.
It costs twice as much for you to travel to and from work than it did just a year ago.
It will probably cost you twice as much to heat your home this winter.
So what does Barack Obama propose to help the workers of America? Better gas mileage 18 years from now.
Oh yeah, he is also promising to raise your taxes, so while he isn’t going to help lower your energy costs, he’s also going to take more money from your paycheck. If this is Obama’s hope for American I’ll pass.
