I am now!! Seriously!! How out of touch can these people be?!? They want to double our power bills. How many elderly people will freeze to death, die of heat stroke, or starve with the passage of the cap and tax? How about people on one income? Could they have picked a better time to pass this? No. Why? If this passes, then we will NEED the government just to survive. Who could afford food, electricity and medical bills? Not me and my husband with our 5 kids. How is this not an attack on middle income, single parent, lower income, fixed income or large families? Maybe if we were all "environmentally responsible", we would have known that we should get abortions after our first child... or we couldn't afford it. Can you see a limit on children coming? If they even try that, I would be more than happy to die for my beliefs. How is our government not becoming more like China.... you know... the ones that "own", I mean let us borrow money. Our government is getting so into our business, I don't see much hope for our country. Seriously, it will either come down to the death of our country or a revolution. Why doesn't anyone else seem to care? Why are we so transfixed with the death of a pop start and not interested in what will happen to our children's futures? Who could begin to afford all of these taxes? Oh wait!! Members of congress could. They make insane amount of money off of our backs already.... and can't pass a state budget. When was the last time you went out and spent $50,000 more than you had and then demanded that other people pay for your idiocy? That being said, why should Alabama pay for the dippity-doo-dahs in California that didn't notice that they are spending $25 billion over what they have. WHAT? Aren't they a state that legalized medical marijuana? Ok. Now I get it. They are all high. That is the only conclusion I could come to. Can you come up with a better one?

And why, if California is such an incompetent state, would we take all their laws for housing (you know, the ones they can't afford) and impose them on people that don't make near as much money? Do you trust our government to run our medical, housing, etc.... and has anyone noticed how buddy-buddy Obama is with Hugo Chavez? Our President friends with a socialist.... coincidence of freudian slip? You decide.
Anyway, I am fed up with the Fed. They are messing everything up, Obama has proved to me a major idiot and no one else is acting like they have a lick of sense. If they want the UN to run our country... let me just ay it would be OVER MY DEAD BODY!!
OK. Now I will go breathe into a bag and use relaxation breathing techniques. Maybe a bubble bath...
BTW... here is a great site to get a better hold in the cap and tax:

    Looks like we're both on our soapboxes today...just about different topics. I'm really concerned about our country too...seems like we're moving in the wrong direction in so many areas.

    Breathe.

    Relax.

    And Have a Great Day!

    I'm from Massachusetts and I HEAR you...I feel like very much alone in this very LIBERAL state...I just called the office of John Kerry and asked him to vote NO on this cap & trade bill yeah right, but I feel better for voicing my opinion......very scary times we are living in...when I voiced my concerns about Obama back in November everyone was on the "we need change bandwagon"...oh boy are we getting change !!!

    I have been listening to Glenn Beck @ first I thought he was a bit of a nut, well alot nuts...now I think he is the voice of reason...makes you ? and think anyway...

    And what about Al Franken getting in, just what we need in the Senate huh (?) a comedian...I'm not laughing..

    Great post

    I could not agree with this post more. I don't know what is going to happen to our country. I can't imagine what our Founding Fathers would think of this incredible nonsense that our country has gotten into. It is so sad to see our country falling apart. I can't believe where we are headed. I don't think Obama has any idea what is really going on with American people.

    It's your sister. I thought you'd get chewed up and spit out over this post! Guess people are finally realizing that "change" isn't necessarily good. I want to support our president like a good American but it's hard when he's being such a moron... :D
