A Couple of Explanations

I have read a couple of good explanations that I want to share with everyone who reads this blog.

The first one, I read a little while ago in Rush Limbaugh's news letter. Ever wonder why, even though every time he speaks to a legislative body it snows or is very, very cold, Al Gore is pushing the "Global Warming" agenda so much? This explains it.

"'Tortilla riots' in Mexico. Violent protests in Haiti, Egypt, Morocco, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Guinea, Mauritania, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Mozambique, Bolivia, and other nations. World Bank president Robert Zoellick notes 33 countries face social unrest - all due to skyrocketing world food prices, which have risen by 83% in three years.
What is the 'root cause' of this misery? One word: ethanol.
'This is the world's big story,' Jeffrey Sachs, director of Columbia University's Earth Institute, told CNN. 'We've been putting our food into the gas tank - this corn-to-ethanol subsidy ... really makes little sense.'
So who is behind the ethanol scam that's taking food out of mouths around the world?
Thank Al Gore.
Back in 1994, a hotly contested bill to extend an EPA regulation requiring ethanol to be added to the nation's gasoline supply came up before the U.S. Senate. The bill also raised the amount of ethanol mandated to dilute gasoline. None other than Vice Perpetrator Algore was responsible for its passage. In an article titled "Rule on Ethanol Upheld," the Aug. 4 1994 New York Times reported:
'With a tie-breaking vote by Vice President Al Gore, the Senate upheld today an EPA rule requiring that ethanol and other renewable fuels get a share of the gasoline additives market. The Senate voted 51-50 ... to carry out a rule guaranteeing renewable fuels a 15 percent share of the lucrative fuel oxygenate market in 1995. That share rises to 30 percent in following years.'
Then-President Clinton noted: 'In the United States Senate, it came down to a tie vote. And Al Gore broke the tie in favor of ethanol.' At the Third Annual Farm Journal Conference on Dec. 1, 1998, then-Vice President Gore boasted: 'I was also proud to stand up for the ethanol tax exemption when it was under attack in the Congress -- at one point, supplying a tie-breaking vote in the Senate to save it. The more we can make this home-grown fuel a successful, widely-used product, the better off our farmers and our environment will be.'
Actually, the worse off the environment (ethanol emits more CO2 than conventional gasoline) -- and the hungry of the world -- are.
But Algore himself is benefiting handsomely. On March 1, as reported by NewsBusters, Gore told the Technology, Entertainment, Design Conference in Monterey, CA: 'Here are just a few of the investments I personally think make sense. I have a stake in these...' As Gore spoke those words, company names appeared on his slide presentation, including Amyris and AltraBiofuels -- both of which are heavily into ethanol.
According to the National Review, 'the venture capital group Gore joined in November, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, also has investments in Amyris and AltraBiofuels. One of the key partners of this firm, John Doerr, is advocating legislation that would expand biofuel usage ... Add it up, and you've got an astounding number of dollars invested in agritechnology companies by Gore and folks connected to him...'
The poor are rioting for food; Algore says: let me burn corn.

Again, it's all about money and control. They want all the money and the ability to control our very lives.

The second one was sent to me by a friend. I read it this morning. It explains socialism in a nutshell.

"An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class... The class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism.
All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too; so they studied little.. The second Test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F.
The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for anyone else. All failed to their great surprise and the professor told them that socialism would ultimately fail because the harder to succeed the greater the reward but when a government takes all the reward away; no one will try or succeed'

This is a very simple explanation as to why rewarding those who won't work and punishing those who work and earn won't work. It never has and it never will.

This is exactly what the Democrats are trying to do. They are expanding the government at an alarming rate. They are spending so much money that the only way we are going to be able to pay for it is to raise taxes, on everyone.

This is the CHANGE that the majority of voters in this country voted for. I think they are beginning to realize just how stupid it was to put this man in office.

First thing I hope you are right about people finally realizing that we have the wrong man in office.
Second I do understand what you are saying about the ethonal. Beside that the older cars can't handle that type of fuel and would have to be convereted and that isn't cheap. I do know Michael wants to use biodiesel, but he has been researching on how to build your own and using your own waste (food) to make it. So as far as that goes if these companies would learn to use the waste products insead of fresh products then not as many people in the world would go hungry. And if we would ever do that then it would only be the truck that would use it because the jeep is regular fuel.
But I do feel that if they feel we need to use the bio products to fuel our vehicles then they need to use waste product so that would cut down on the trash that goes to the dump and they need to convert everyones vehicles. Which you know that won't happen.
