Obama to bankrupt coal, is intellectually and morally bankrupt himself! News at eleven!

Barack Obama is a liar or a fool, or both. I dare you to watch this video and deny it! Don't be afraid, it is only information, it cannot hurt you...unless you have already voted for him and it has made you sick!

Barack Obama will bankrupt this nation, beginning with the Coal industry:


Imagine if John McCain had whispered somewhere that he was willing to bankrupt a major industry? Would this declaration not immediately be front page news? Well, Barack Obama actually flat out told the San Francisco Chronicle (SF Gate) that he was willing to see the coal industry go bankrupt in a January 17, 2008 interview. The result? Nothing. This audio interview has been hidden from the public...until now. Here is the transcript of Obama's statement about bankrupting the coal industry (emphasis mine):

"Let me sort of describe my overall policy.

What I've said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else's out there.

I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted."

Watch the video. These are the very words of Barack Obama.

The Ohio Coal Association did. They can see how Obama will ruin the coal industry and stick a stilleto into the gut of our economy in the process.

Excerpt: "Senator Obama has revealed himself to be nothing more than a short- sighted, inexperienced politician willing to say anything to get a vote. But today, the nation's coal industry and those who support it have a better understanding of his true mission, to 'bankrupt' our industry, put tens of thousands out of work and cause unprecedented increases in electricity prices.

"In addition to providing an affordable, reliable source of low-cost electricity, domestic coal holds the key to our nation's long-term energy security - a goal that cannot be overlooked during this time of international instability and economic uncertainty.

"Few policy areas are more important to our economic future than energy issues. As voters head to the polls tomorrow, it is essential they remember that access to reliable, affordable, domestic energy supplies is essential to economic growth and stability."

Wakepedia calls an Obama win a "perfect storm." Kind of like going all Hurricane Katrina all over the economy!

So let's get this straight:

1) Barack Obama intends to raise taxes and redistribute the paychecks of those who pay income taxes to those who do not. This will cause some companies to relocate, some to downsize and some to fail - all causing jobs to be lost. No way does anyone with an ounce of sense raise taxes in a time of economic uncertainty.

2) Barack Obama intends to ignore the vast natural gas and oil resources we could tap in this country to throw money at alternative sources not yet developed, thus causing the prices to rise again and increasing our dependence on foreign powers.

3) Barack Obama intends to make regulations on nuclear energy plants so complex and difficult that they cannot be built.

4) Barack Obama intends to bankrupt the coal industry and kill off another source of energy for the American people.

5) Barack's cap-and-trade policies will cause more companies to flee the USA, if the increased taxes were not enough, taking even more jobs with them. His policies are so radical that they are truly inconceivable! He is talking about deliberately destroying the remainder of our manufacturing base and making energy so expensive that most families will be hard pressed to pay their heating and electric bills, let alone drive a car!

6) Barack Obama's values life so little that he believes babies born alive despite an attempt to abort them should still be killed off.

7) Barack Obama believes that the US Constitution is flawed and requires judges who will consider other issues besides the evidences and letter of the law in issuing opinions and verdicts. He also wants them to consider race and class and gender and religion!

8) Barack Obama cannot be trusted to tell the truth, since he changes his position to fit the audience. Therefore we cannot say if he will tax people and businesses making over 250 thousand dollars or over 42 thousand dollars or somewhere in between. How can anyone believe a single word he has ever said?

9) At least an Obama victory would make our sworn enemies happy.

I felt foolish in 1976 for voting for a spineless Jimmy Carter who had more trouble making a decision than he did paddling away in fear from a dangerous attack rabbit! If you vote for Barack Obama, foolish is the least of what you will feel like later on. Abused? Betrayed? It won't be good.

Today I received my autographed copy of Michael Yon's book, Moment of Truth in Iraq.
It details the truth about what has and is happening over there. How our troops there are the new "greatest generation" in not only casting out the bad guys but building roads and schools and giving the people, especially the children, real hope. The Surge has worked in Iraq. McCain was completely right and Obama was completely wrong. Lather, rinse and repeat.

God bless and help our country!!!!! Vote for the guy who has risked his life and limb and sacrificed his sweat, blood and tears for you. Vote for the guy who will work to make government smaller rather than larger and seek to make energy more plentiful and available rather than scarce. Vote for a man who loves life and has fought to defend it! John McCain!

(See? I'm not just clinging to my guns and religion!)
