“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” Thomas Jefferson

They Did it Again.
I just love how our Congress men and women seem to think it is ok to pass a bill that they have not read. The House passed that monstrous Cap and Trade bill yesterday, all 1000 pages of it. Apparently, they were plied with dove bars and a luau and just couldn't control themselves afterward. I am proud to say that the reps of my state voted against it. Now, we will have to see what the senate is going to do. It seems to have become common practice these days to not read bills. They didn't read the bailout bill and they didn't read this one. How do I know they didn't read this one? Because over 300 hundred pages were added at the last minute, no one had the time to read all 300 of those pages before the vote. For those who don't understand why most of us do not like this bill, it is simple, taxes! Taxes will go up on everything...home electricity and gas, food cost, clothing cost. Anything that costs money to produce or get it where it needs to go will rise in cost. Will this be the beginning of that hyperinflation that all the economists have been speaking of? We will have to see. Government has gotten to big for their britches folks, they need to be fired. Now we will just have to wait and see what the Senate does with this monster. God help us all.
