Then Senator Obama, in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle.
It's not enough for DC vampires to help their buds on Wall Street bleed us dry by stealing our pension funds and 401K retirement accounts.
Or that we're being spent into poverty supporting Wars for Empire and Israel in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
They also want to glean what little money we have left by taxing and taxing and taxing our electricity until some vague goal is met. This tax will also be levied on gasoline.
Basically, here's a summary of the new tax.
Save Our Climate Act of 2009
Save Our Climate Act of 2009 - Amends the Internal Revenue Code to impose an excise tax on the carbon content of any taxable fuel sold by a manufacturer, producer, or importer. Sets the amount of such tax at $10 per ton of the carbon content in such fuel, with annual increases in the amount of such tax until the second year after the level of carbon dioxide emissions in the United States for the calendar year does not exceed 20% of the level for 1990. Defines "taxable fuel" as coal (including lignite and peat), petroleum and any petroleum product, and natural gas. Exempts from such tax the sale or in-kind exchange of fuel for deposit in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and certain exports or resales of such fuel.
Exempts certain exports? WTF? That means either the Pentagon or Israel... or both.
The largest generator of hot gas, Al Gore, is using the threat of some vague climate change to scare Americans into voting more Democrats into office in 2010.
Sorry Al baby, we done got shit on in the 2006 elections, when we were told to vote Democrat and give those shit eating bottom dwellers a majority in both houses and they'll stop the war and go after Bush.
We got sold another batch of toxic snake oil in 2008, when AGAIN we were told to vote Democratic and give us a bigger House and Senate majority and "By Gawd" we'll get this straightened out and Change DC.
Again, we got shit on Big Time, by Mr. Change himself, who must be setting records for the number and speed of broken campaign promises.
Now you want us to vote Democratic again, in 2010?
What the fuck for? So you can maintain a death grip on Congress and the WH?
And you're going to scare people into voting Democratic with tales of fear from Global Warming?
How does that make you cocksuckers any different from GW when he used the fear of Bin Laden in 2004 to keep the Republicans in power?
I'm thinking about voting Republican just to spite you no-good, dirty sons of a bitches, that's how far I've sunken.
Either that, or tear up my voter registration card, since it's worthless.
Al, Obama, Rahm and especially Nancy.....
GO FUCK YOURSELVES
