Tax The Air You Breathe?

The global warming/climate change crowd continues to clamor to force their scheme to tax carbon emissions to enrich themselves. They need to be stopped! Before you know it, they will start taxing the carbon we emit when we breathe! So, there would be a tax if you want to breathe! 

The carbon tax is a tax as bogus as the sale of indulgences, which was the rage many centuries ago.  The sale of indulgences sheared the sheep by scaring them, the same way Algore et al does. 

The Medieval church said that if you didn’t pay protection money, you’d go to hell.  

The carbon tax shows that this Green movement is about money. 

In Bucks County, PA, a local politician wants to cash in by joining the carbon tax bandwagon.  He called this tax “market based” and would use the money to fund building roads, bridges and for energy. 

A few years back, Pope Francis championed human caused global warming.  BO (former President Barry Obummer) joined forces with the pope on this issue.  The Pope and BO are two sh**birds of a feather. 

These birds are in league with the pseudo-environmentalists, aka watermelon environmentalists (green on the outside, red on the inside).  BO has been legislating under the influence (LUI) of these elitist kooks.  The Jesuits, which Pope Francis is aligned with, historically have had a Marxist bent. 

What does this mean to us? 

BO, the UN and the radical Greens have been unsuccessful in their attempts to bring the US and the rest of the world into a binding international climate agreement.  Now that they have the blessings of the Pope, and those who don’t question his authority, they have a chance of screwing us with the Paris climate scam. 

Fortunately, President Trump put a lid on the Paris climate scam. 

BO, the UN and the radical Greens have been unsuccessful in their attempts to bring the US and the rest of the world into a binding international climate agreement.  Although they have the blessings of the Pope, and those who don’t question his authority, their schemes may very well just be a pipe dream. Just their imagination, running away… 

John 8:32 32Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 

Tilting At Windmills

Señor Quexada has read so many books about knights in shining armor that he thinks he is one. He gives himself a name more fitting for a knight — Don Quixote — and sets off one evening with his squire. Likewise, the sophomoric protesters who march to save the environment from climate change think they are our knights in shining armor. They’ve learned a few buzzwords and, like Don Quixote, are on a quest to save us from, to quote a line from an email I got from the League of Conservation Voters, “Donald Trump and climate inaction.”

Like Don Quixote, the climate change protesters don’t see the world for what it really is. In the Spanish novel, Don Quixote sets off on an adventure at dawn with his squire and comes across large windmills he believes to be ferocious giants.

Just then they came in sight of thirty or forty windmills that rise from that plain. And no sooner did Don Quixote see them that he said to his squire, ‘Fortune is guiding our affairs better than we ourselves could have wished. Do you see over yonder, friend Sancho, thirty or forty hulking giants? I intend to do battle with them and slay them. With their spoils we shall begin to be rich for this is a righteous war and the removal of so foul a brood from off the face of the earth is a service God will bless.’

‘What giants?” asked Sancho Panza.

‘Those you see over there,’ replied his master, ‘with their long arms. Some of them have arms well nigh two leagues in length.’

‘Take care, sir,” cried Sancho. ‘Those over there are not giants but windmills. Those things that seem to be their arms are sails which, when they are whirled around by the wind, turn the millstone. ‘ “

The quixotic “environmentalists” are attacking windmills. For those of you in Doylestown, “Quixotism (/kwɪkˈsɒtɪzəm/ or /kiːˈhoʊtɪzəm/) (adj. quixotic) is impracticality in pursuit of ideals, especially those ideals manifested by rash, lofty and romantic ideas or extravagantly chivalrous action.[1] It also serves to describe an idealism without regard to practicality. An impulsive person or act might be regarded as quixotic.

Quixotism is usually related to “over-idealism”, meaning an idealism that doesn’t take consequence or absurdity into account. It is also related to naïve romanticism and to utopianism.” -Wikipedia

Don Quixote just looked silly after confusing windmills for giants. Should the climate marchers prevail in their quixotic quest, they would win the day for green energy poverty.

President Trump is eliminating the windmill attacking, job killing, economy hurting regulations of his predecessor. Coal miners, for example are going back to work. The war on coal is over. As The Temptations sang:

Birds are singing and the children are playing
There’s plenty of work and the bosses are paying “

I’m glad that, in Bucks County, PA Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick is not buying into the climate change agenda. Recently, a quixotic environmentalist complained: “Brian Fitzpatrick doesn’t actively fight for our environmental values.”  said Steve Cickay of Newtown. “He has set the bar incredibly low to fool his constituents that he is an environmentalist and that is deceptive and wrong. We deserve better. We want someone who will fight passionately for clean air, clean water, and clean energy and against the ugly Trump environmental agenda. We will continue to hold him accountable until we get better.”

The common lie among these types is that President Trump, et al, is against clean air, clean water, and clean energy. No evidence of such; just empty talking points mantra. As was the case with the windmills, there is no basis in reality.

The environmentalists cause is a war on fossil fuels and capitalism and about redistributing wealth and control, at the expense of the poor and middle class. And our health. As was the case during the late 20s and 30s, this kind of system results in rampant poverty and homelessness.

We don’t, like that environmentalist wacko said, need better. We have better!

God gave man dominion over the earth for our use. We are to be good stewards of what he has given us. This is what we are doing!

The heavens belong to the LORD, but he has given the earth to all humanity. -Psalm 115:16
