Cap and Trade Section 304

First – Mark Steyn:

“Stephen, speaking as a foreigner, I confess I’m finding it harder and harder to see why you fellows bothered holding a revolution. Under this bill, it will be illegal for me to sell my property to a willing buyer without first bringing it into line with some twerp bureaucrat’s arbitrary and ever shifting “environmental” regulations originally designed for California, and which have helped turn the Golden State into the foldin’ state, but which are nevertheless now to be applied from Maine to Alaska. And no matter what you spend a couple of years down the road the standards will be “revised” and you’ll be out of compliance all over again.”

Second – Read this rundown on Section 304 of the recently passed Cap and Tax Trade legislation. Warning: Your brain may explode.

No doubt AT&T will still charge you a Quarter per MMS you send AND RECEIVE with their amazing Grab-Your-Ankles Data Plan – which does not include text (and likely not MMS, when it is available…late this summer.)

Therefore – AT&T wins their second (yes, they count as Cingular – one and the same…) Jar-Jar Award for Raising Teh SuXX0R!

UofO Professor Upset over Autzen Stadium ‘O’

Read my full discussion of this at Appeal to Heaven.

This just in from KMTR

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – A University of Oregon professor says the huge yellow “O” on Autzen Stadium is an eyesore for her neighborhood.

McKay Sohlberg’s complaints have led to a May 13 hearing over whether the university has the proper permission to put the “O” on the south side of the football stadium.

Originally, the 816-square-foot “O” was hung by the athletic department for a national television pre-game show. But it stayed after the TV crews had gone.

Sohlberg says the city should have applied for a permit or an exception before the “O” went up.

The Eugene planning director ruled the sign was an exception to the code in March. But Sohlberg appealed to a hearings officer, the next step.

I’m no lawyer, but I’m pretty sure that McKay Sohlberg doesn’t own the Autzen Stadium property. When she bought her home in the neighborhood, did she buy a guarantee that Autzen Stadium wouldn’t put up something she thought looked bad?

No. No she didn’t. She bought the property AND the risk that the Stadium might put up a giant O.

Would she appreciate it if the owners of Autzen Stadium appealed something that she was doing with her property? No.

If she has a problem with it, maybe should should consider buying the property from Autzen Stadium – rather than trying to get government to force Autzen to do whatever she wants with their property.

What’s the principal behind ‘health care reform’?

Actually it’s not a “principled fight.”

It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it.

Who actually pays the taxes in America?

Oligarchy? Who decides unreasonable and excessive compensation?

Democratic Majority Leader thinks the government firing CEO’s is just great, but doesn’t know the definition of socialism

This is Harry Reid on the firing of GM’s CEO:


I wish people who were pro-socialism would just come out and say it – rather than pretending that their ideas aren’t what they are. Then, at least we could have an honest debate about the merits. For whatever reason though, the whole government-can-do-everything crowd doesn’t want to acknowledge that they hold socialist philosophies. Could that be because socialist philosophy is built on the ideas of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engles – and if the American people actually realized that, they would reject them?

This interchange wins:

Reid: “Well, I don’t know what the definition of a socialist ideal is but…”

Levin: “Look it up, idiot.”

Hendrickson: “Government control of companies”

Difference between our Economy being Fundamentally Strong vs. Fundamentally Sound totally and clearly explained


Don’t you get it now?

Definitions:
Sound: financially secure and safe; “sound investments”; “a sound economy”
Strong: solid: of good quality and condition; solidly built; not faint or feeble;

McCain sure was out of touch…
