Energy Independence and other issues.

The reason you are paying over $4 a gallon for gas and our other energy costs are going through the roof is Congress! It isn't George Bush's fault, it is no coincidence that since the liberal Democrats took over both the House and Senate that our gas prices have almost doubled since. Also our economy has been going down because they have been down taking it down since Bush was elected president and they accused him of talking down the economy when he pointed out the problems cause by 8 years of the Clintons and the largest tax increase in history they brought us when he was running for office.
If you think the economy is bad now elect Obama and see what happens.. From what I hear from him "change" is to raise the taxes on everything! If you are barely getting by now wait until he raises taxes on energy, income, social security, medicare and then passes socialized medical care. It will totally collapse our economy. The reason medical care is so expensive is government has mandated hospitals give treatment to everyone who can't or don't want to pay for it, including millions of illegals which has about bankrupted the emergency rooms here in Arizona and forced the closer of a couple of them. They mandate what doctors will get for medicare which isn't enough. This forces doctors and hospitals to pass on these unmet expenses to us in order to stay in business. My 90 year old grand parents just had to be moved out of the long term hospital care because the hospital wasn't getting enough from medicare to keep the unit open and was loosing millions of dollars a year. There isn't ONE damn thing the federal government does right or well and you want to put them in charge of your medical care??? Look what they have done with social insecurity and medicare! There isn't anything the government can give you that they didn't take away from you or someone else in the first place and the vast majority of people get back far less than is taken from them. There isn't the constitutional authority to do most of what they are doing in the first place and the things they should be doing like protecting our boarders they are not doing.
The only people who pay taxes are the end consumer of the product or service that is taxed. If you raise the taxes on the "evil oil companies" they have to pass on the increased cost of business to the people who buy their products. If they didn't they would eventually go out of business. You can not sell products for what they cost to make or less and make a profit that keeps your business operating. If you have a 401K or other retirement or investing plan you own a portion of oil and other business, if the business in your portfolio aren't making a profit, neither are you on your investments. Anything government does to affect their profits affects YOU! If you think you are under taxed you are an idiot.

Back to energy, this is what I started to write about (I could rant about the problems with our government all day..) This is an excerpt from Glenn Beck's website that was in his email news letter tonight. Glenn is about the only one on TV (CNN afternoons) that is telling it like it is. I don't care for his radio show much but you HAVE TO WATCH HIS TV SHOW!! Thank God for PVR's (hard drive based VCR with out the Video tape, I do have full time 48+ hour job) He is talking to Representative Chris Cannon from Utah's 3rd congressional district.

=======================================================

Glenn Beck: Oil shale the answer?

http://www.glennbeck.com/content/articles/article/196/11464/

"GLENN: All right. So what is the -- your bill takes all of the burden out of congress and puts it on the President's desk?

CONGRESSMAN CANNON: Well, yeah. He is the executive and what it does is it gives him the ability to cut through seven years and make that seven weeks and so you sit down and you say, what do we need to do to protect the environment and what's the process we're going to use. And there are various processes that are very different and they are going to have different constraints. But then you give the President the authority to come to a conclusion and give a permit in a short time and then you monitor, see what's going on. You may have to adjust that permit over time but at least you get people producing oil.
'' " "..

GLENN: Yet the will in congress is not. I've got a guy here who's been waiting for a while to talk on the air and I'm going to put him on the air. His question is don't you think that congress is intentionally trying to sabotage our economy for the election. Give me a reason here, Chris, why congress is doing the things that they're doing. Why are they doing this? This is not in our economic long-term health by any stretch of the imagination to keep us shackled to terror states.

CONGRESSMAN CANNON: Yes, Saudi Arabia funding Al-Qaeda, Iran funding Hezbollah, Hamas. Human events had an article two weeks ago about an Iranian funded terrorist camp in the Venezuela. You know, we're paying these people to undermine our interests and we're propping up a --

GLENN: So what is stopping the congress? What is the motivation of congress to not free our hands?

CONGRESSMAN CANNON: Well, if you look at the numbers, they're fascinating. The bulk of Republicans will vote to drill in ANWR, to drill in the continent she will, to drill in the Midwest to drill for shale. About 90%, in some cases a little more, a little less of Democrats vote against that and with the reps cans who vote against this and the Democrats who vote against this, we've not been able to get those things passed. We passed the right -- there's a prohibition against drilling in the Alaskan national wildlife preserve but we have to overcome what's positive law. We passed that in the House a couple of times and the Senate actually passed it as well but the times we passed it in the House and the Senate didn't pass it, then we had problems with a potential candidate being the critical vote there. So we have to get -- the American people have got to express themselves on this issue and we're about to put up a website called dollargas.us. I think it's up yet but we want the American people to be saying we want a dollar, a dollar and a quarter gas. That's where it ought to be. And if we were producing our own gas, our own oil out of our own resource here in America, one, we would have cheaper gas. And two, we wouldn't be funding our enemies.

GLENN: Chris Cannon from the great state of Utah. Thank you very much. We'll look at the bill. What is the bill number?

CONGRESSMAN CANNON: Oh, it's -- I think it's 6811, but I apologize."

Thank you President Clinton

  I got this some time back and found it today cleaning my attachment folder which has not been done in a long time.  I don't know who wrote it or who sent it to me,  I added a couple of sentences and paragraphs (after 14.) of incidents they didn't write.  BTW, when I see liberal bumper stickers on a car I am very tempted to vandalize it or run them off the road.  There are no bumper stickers on my vehicle. But I try to live the Golden Rule of do unto others as you would have them do to you.  Mostly the way I want to be treated by others is to leave me alone, unless your a pretty woman and then I'll make an exception to that.

======================================================================

Dear Mr. Ex President Clinton:

I recently saw a bumper sticker that said, "Thank me, I voted for Clinton-Gore." So, I sat down and reflected on that, and I am sending my "Thank you" for what you have done, specifically:

1. Thank you for introducing us to Jennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky, Dolly Kyle Browning, Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broderick. Did I leave anyone out?

2. Thank you for teaching my 8 year old about oral sex. I had really planned to wait until they were older to discuss it with them, but now they know more about it than I did as a senior in college.

3. Thank you for showing us that sexual harassment in the work place (especially the White House) and on the job is OK, and all you have to know is what the meaning of "is" is. It really is great to know that certain sexual acts are not sex, and one person may have sex while the other one involved does NOT have sex.

4. Thank you for reintroducing the concept of impeachment to a new generation and demonstrating that the ridiculous plot of the movie, "Wag the Dog" could be plausible after all.

5. Thanks for making Jimmy Carter look competent, Gerald Ford look graceful, Richard Nixon look honest, Lyndon Johnson look truthful, and John Kennedy look moral.

6. Thank you for the 73 House and Senate witnesses who have pled the 5th Amendment and 17 witnesses who have fled the country to avoid testifying about Democratic campaign fund raising.

7. Thank you, for the 19 charges, 8 convictions, and 4 imprisonments from the Whitewater "mess" and the 55 criminal charges and 32 criminal convictions (so far) in the other "Clinton" scandals.

8. Thanks you and the other Democrats  for reducing our military by half, "gutting" much of our foreign policy, intelligence capability and flying all over the world on "vacations" carefully disguised as necessary trips.  It seems you have been campaigning for Secretary General of the United Nations since your re-election in 1996.

9. Thank you, also, for "finding" millions of dollars--- I really didn't need it in the first place, and I can't think of a more well deserving group of recipients for my hard-earned dollar than jet fuel for all of your globe-trotting. I understand you, your family and your  cronies have logged in more time aboard Air Force One than any other  administration. Good luck on your continued campaign to be King of the world.

10. Now that you've left the White House, thanks for the 140 pardons of convicted felons and indicted felons-in-exile. We will love to have them rejoin society.

11. Thanks also for removing the White House silverware. I'm sure that Laura Bush didn't like the pattern anyway. Also, enjoy the housewarming gifts you've received from your "friends."

12. Thanks to you and your staff in the West Wing of the White House for vandalizing and destroying government property such as removing all the W keys on the computer keyboards on the way out. I also appreciate removing all of that excess weight (China, silverware, linen, towels, ash trays, soap, pens, magnetic compass, flight manuals, etc.) out of Air Force 1. The weight savings means burning less fuel, thus less tax dollars spent on jet fuel. Thank you!

13. And, please ensure that Hillary enjoys the $8 million dollar advance for her upcoming "tell-all" book and you, Bill, the $10 million advance for your memoirs. Who says crime doesn't pay?

14. The last and most important point - thank you for forcing Israel to let Mohammed Atta go free. Terrorist pilot Mohammed Atta blew up a bus in Israel in 1986. The Israelis captured, tried and imprisoned him. As part of the Oslo agreement with the Palestinians in 1993, Israel had to agree to release so-called "political prisoners." However, the Israelis would not release any with blood on their hands. The American President at the time, Bill Clinton, and his Secretary of State, Warren Christopher, "insisted" that all prisoners be released. Thus Mohammed Atta was freed and eventually thanked the US by flying an airplane into Tower One of the World Trade Center. This was reported by many of the American TV networks at the time that the terrorists were first identified. It was censored in the US from all later reports. Why shouldn't Americans know the real truth?

15. Thank you for not taking up Sudan's offer to turn over Osoma bin Laden to US custody twice, we all know how he has repaid the United States for letting him remain free.

16. Thank you for killing all those troublesome people in Waco, stopping David Koresh from corrupting all those people by burning all 93 of them to death. Thank you for Ruby Ridge, surely Randy Weaver's wife deserved being shot in the head while standing in the door holding her child, his son and a friend all killed because he wouldn't spy on white supremacists for the FBI.  Thank you for promoting all the BTAF and FBI agents that were responsible for these acts and doing such a good job of covering up their wrong doing.

17.  Thank you for making it harder for victims to obtain guns to defend themselves from criminals. After all you taught us words are flexible and that musty document the Constitution is a living document open to interpretation.  Just because it says "..the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." doesn't mean you can't ban evil looking "assault weapons", clips with capacities of more than 10, take the records of gun stores, and make people wait 5 days before they can get a gun to defend themselves.

18. Thank you for passing one of the largest tax increases in history.  I'm glad you could take our money and spend it on things you thought were important.  Thank you for causing a recession and suing evil Microsoft.  The stock market was way over valued any ways before your actions caused it to drop.

19. Thank you for helping the Communist Chinese with their ballistic missile program and giving them the technology for launching multiple warheads with one rocket, I'm sure they will only use it for satellites.  I know they have already thanked you and Al Gore with millions in camping contributions.  Who would of thought monks had so much money.


What a guy!! If you agree that the American public must be made aware of these facts, pass this on.

God bless America and THANK YOU (once again) for spending my taxes so wisely and frugally.

SINCERELY,
A US Citizen

PS. Please pass along a special thank you to Al Gore for "inventing" the Internet, without which I would not be able to send this wonderful factual e-mail.

AND THE REST OF THE STORY Hillary Rodham Clinton, as a New York State Senator, now comes under the "Congressional Retirement and Staffing Plan," which means that even if she never gets re-elected, she STILL receives her Congressional salary until she dies. Would it not be nice if all Americans were pension eligible after only 4 years?

If Bill outlives her, he then inherits HER salary until HE dies. He is already getting his Presidential salary until he dies. If Hillary outlives Bill, she also gets HIS salary until she dies. Guess who pays for that? WE DO!
It's common knowledge that in order for her to establish NY residency they purchased a million dollar-plus house in upscale Chappaqua, New York. Makes sense. They are entitled to Secret Service protection for life. Still makes sense. Here is where it becomes interesting. Their mortgage payments hover at around $10,000 per month. BUT, an extra residence HAD to be built within the acreage to house the Secret Service agents. The Clintons charge the Federal government $10,000 monthly rent for the use of that extra residence, which is just about equal to their mortgage payment. This means that we, the taxpayers, are paying the Clinton's salary, mortgage, transportation, safety and security, as well as the salaries for their 12 man staff-and, this is all perfectly legal!

When she runs for President, will you vote for her? How many people can YOU send this to? Good Luck to all our taxpayers.
