Dear Readers: Scanning the web today, I had an eco-update to my “Environmentalists Gone Wild” post of yesterday. It seems that California activists are saying CALIFORNIA’S CAP AND TRADE IS RACIST!!! Cool.
A coalition of environmental justice and civil rights activists has filed a complaint alleging that cap-and-trade provisions in California’s pioneering program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions discriminate against people of color.
Eco-activists vs race-baiters. I have just 2 words:
Speaking of insanity, DNC-head Debbie Wasserman Schultz sent a survey to us Democrats. The odor of desperation so potent it managed to waft through the computer screen. Here is a sample of the questions asked: I suspect that the DNC will be none too happy with my response.
- Professor Jacobson seems particularly thrilled about another demographic breaking away from the blue fold.
- Lonely Conservative reports on a poll in which Obama is losing 25% of the black vote. INSANE!
The Democrats in Sacramento are also madly working to manipulate a series of spot-bills that will help making passing tax increases on us minions much easier. From Cal WatchDog: NEW: ‘Big three’ budget talks behind closed doors
Earlier in the year I reported about the 80 spot bills — empty bills awaiting bill language — which were moved from the legislative budget committees to the Assembly and Senate floors.
The now includes Proposition 25, majority vote by the Legislature to pass a budget; and Proposition 26, requiring a supermajority vote to pass fees and taxes by the Legislature. So the majority Democrats are making major policy changes and potential tax increases by dropping either in trailer-bill language.
By using the spot bills, and now budget-trailer bills, the majority party is avoiding the usual and legal committee process, and the public will never hear the policy and financial debate surrounding the bills.
This means legislators are not always given have a chance to weigh in on and debate the bills.
The tactic raises serious questions about the questionable lengths the majority party will go to jam through legislation without the historically and legal processes.
How can such insanity be dealt with? Per Alinksy Rule 5 — some mocking is in order. Fellow SLOBs Beers with Demo and Charles Caesar, and Conservative Mom Friend Zilla, have been leading the way with the newest Twitter-blitzkrieg: #characterstospare, mocking Obama’s lame insult of the Romney campaign.
I LOVE US!!!
KT Cat has a series on European Insanity — that is, their debt crisis. His pieces on what is going on over across the pond are essential reading, as this is likely to really impact us hard. For example, in a bat-shit crazy-ass move, new French President Hollande just LOWERED the retirement to 60. I guess because German workers are just aces about working to 80 to support them.
Quick — call the civility police — I just used the words ass and shit.
To conclude, a little tune called “Blue Insanity”.
