Obama rolls with...Ludacris?

Now that's some hope and change I could do without.
Reason #14,328,974 why I won't push the button for the Obamatron. His posse is just too smelly.

It's official. The Democrats are convinced that we are sheep

From Fox News:

WASHINGTON — The political vision of a summer gas tax holiday died a quick death in Congress, losing to a view that federal excise taxes on gasoline and diesel fuel — far from dropping — will have to go up if they go anywhere.

Despite calls from the presidential campaign trail for a Memorial Day-to-Labor Day tax freeze, lawmakers quickly concluded — with a prod from the construction industry — that having $9 billion less to spend on highways could create a pre-election specter of thousands of lost jobs.

Now I was not one of the people calling for a "gas tax holiday," cause it seemed to me to be a short term solution to a long term problem. But I think that the democrats are monumentally stupid to raise our taxes in a time when the economic conditions are at the edge of a recession. We cut back on driving because of the high cost of gasoline, and because we buy less gasoline, the government is losing money that could go for infrastructure. I got a better idea. All of these morons in congress can just get rid of their little perks and live just like the rest of us slobs out here.

If my congressman votes for this, I'll be sure to show up at his next meet and greet. You'll recognize me easily. I'll be the guy giving him the finger all session long.

I'm not opposed to all of PETA's goals. I love animals and treat them well. This advertisement, however, goes completely over the edge. As a father of daughters, this fucking makes me sick.

Obama thinks that immigration controls are terrorism

When communities are terrorized by ICE immigration raids, when nursing mothers are torn from their babies, when children come home from school to find their parents missing, when people are detained without access to legal counsel, when all that is happening, the system just isn’t working, and we need to change it.

These are his own words.

Ciro the Zero

I've been asking my congressmonkey, Ciro Rodriguez, for MONTHS to get something done in congress about the high energy prices that are helping to cripple this country. He writes back that he pushed for the suspension of deposits to the Strategic Energy Reserve. What a buffoon. Now, I look at his website, and find this piece of crap, advising us to conserve energy. Nothing about exploiting reserves here in the US. This idiot needs to go. There's a reason he was tossed once. Now he needs to be tossed again.

Check it out...from his own website:

Energy Efficiency at your Home

On Wednesday July 9th I hosted a Tele-Town Hall where we discussed current energy policy with Congressman Gene Green from Houston, Energy Research and Development Projects with Mr. Avant from Texas A&M and discussed resources for how you can save on energy costs at your home. Below are some of the tips we discussed and links to other great resources.

Some helpful tips for increased efficiency in your homes:

* Use ceiling and portable fans. They use very little electricity to circulate air in the house. You can set the thermostat for your air conditioning at 85°F and still maintain the comfort of a lower temperature.
* Seal and caulk major air leaks around windows, door, electrical outlets, plumbing fixtures and outside architectural features like chimneys.
* Make sure you get your heating and/or cooling ducts checked for leaks when installing a new system.
* Install white window shades, drapes, or blinds to reflect heat away from the house.
* Improved landscaping. A well-designed landscape not only can add beauty to your home but it also can reduce your heating and cooling costs. On average, landscaping for energy efficiency provides enough energy savings to return an initial investment in less than 8 years. For the San Antonio climate, it's best to maximize summer shade with trees that still allow penetration of low-angle winter sun. Also, avoid locating planting beds close to the home if they require frequent watering.

Home Energy Saver

Home Energy Saver is designed to help consumers identify the best ways to save energy in their homes. The program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy with support from the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Housing.

American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to advancing energy efficiency by providing up-to-date information.

This moron wants you to set your thermostat at 85? I wonder what his thermostat is set at on those warm Washington days. I'll bet it ain't 85.

This is why I'm voting for Lyle Larson for Congress

An Energy Policy for the 21st Century...

With gas prices approaching $4 per gallon and continuing to rise with no relief in sight, it is unacceptable that Congress has failed to address the energy crisis America is facing.

Folks across the nation are struggling as a result of ever increasing energy and food costs and they deserve a solution to this problem.

This week, Toyota announced plans to release their entire part-time workforce from their San Antonio auto manufacturing facility in an effort to decrease production of the Tundra, which, as a result of outrageous gas prices, is experiencing a substantial drop in sales.

The increase in gas prices is causing real families in our community to lose real jobs. People across the 23rd district deserve a Representative who will deal with the reality of the energy crisis and provide a genuine response. Having worked to promote alternative energy solutions at the local level, as your Congressman, I would bring substantial experience in dealing with energy issues to Washington, as well as a multi-pronged strategy to solve this problem.
Energy Policy - Real Ideas and Real Solutions...

While serving on the San Antonio City Council, we took steps to increase our utilization of alternative energy by supporting the South Texas nuclear project and beginning wind power generation.

During my tenure on the Bexar County Commissioners Court, we have implemented several sound energy initiatives, while promoting the goal of greatly reducing our carbon footprint.

In 2005, the Court opened the first ever Ethanol 85 Fuel Station for private and public use, in addition to ongoing replacement of county vehicles to electric hybrid vehicles. In 2006, we approved the VIA Bus Pass Program which provides free bus rides for all County employees to encourage them to use public transportation. In 2001, the Court installed the state's largest solar thermal water heating system at the Adult Detention Center Annex which provides 21,000 gallons of hot water to the facility for laundry, kitchen activities, and showers.

Our strategy is a comprehensive approach that will effectively address the energy crisis using resources we already have and that do not endanger our national food supply. Not only are Americans suffering from increased costs, our dependence on foreign oil is a national security risk. While we must increase the development of renewable energy sources, we must also increase our domestic production and output of oil while increasing our refining capacity to match our country's demand for fossil fuels.

In order to encourage America's oil independence, Congress must lift the ban on offshore drilling. It is necessary that we pursue exploration of resources off the coast of Florida, California, the gulf coast, and in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). While we remain idle, other countries are benefiting from their own offshore exploration.

The Congress is naive to think that the reserves on our coast will remain unexplored while China and other countries are currently drilling a mere 200 miles off our coast exploring and producing oil that should be in American hands. Not only are we missing out on much needed energy, but by refusing to drill, Congress is also relinquishing trillions of dollars that could be used for future research and development of new forms of energy and to deal with the impending fiscal crisis with Medicare and Social Security.

While, in the past, there have been concerns with the environmental implications of drilling in sensitive areas such as ANWR, there are now environmentally sound production methods. Environmentally safe drilling in ANWR can be achieved using directional drilling technology to limit the impact on the footprint significantly more than was possible 5 years ago. In conjunction with increased drilling, we need to expand our refining capacity as well.

While we import most of our oil supply from neighboring countries of Mexico and Canada, we must take steps to aid in their continued production and development of their abundant resources. In order for the U.S. to greatly decrease our reliance on oil that is derived from unfriendly nations, we must make the effort to assist Mexico in its production.

PEMEX, Mexico's state-owned petroleum company, is producing one million barrels less per day than they were 10 years ago. Areas along either side of the Texas/Mexico border share similar geological formations, however, while there are 1,100 active oil wells in Maverick County alone, the oil production in Northern Mexico is non-existent. It is in our long term national interest to share our technology with Mexico thereby helping them to maximize their domestic production.

Our strategy will also include moving toward renewable energy utilization, in addition to the use of conventional fossil fuels. In the 23rd District alone there is a myriad of natural sources that have the capability to be converted into energy, which will not jeopardize food crops. It is not in our nation's best interest to limit our use of biofuel to food crops, which has the effect of unnecessarily driving food prices up. We must find alternative biomass that is as equally viable in a thermo catalytic process as corn, such as algae or non-grain yielding sorghum. We must also cultivate solar, wind and other renewable sources.

We would also provide tax incentives for individuals who choose lead more energy efficient lifestyles. In lieu of a stimulus package, we need to offer tax credits for tax payers who purchase American-made vehicles that are fuel efficient, getting over 25 highway miles per gallon.

Constituents of the 23rd District should be able to look to their member of Congress for a solution to the energy crisis, as opposed to being forced to pay needlessly high gas prices. We can implement this strategy that provides for environmentally responsible energy production, research and development of renewable energy, as well as tax incentives for energy efficiency. Congress needs real leadership to achieve meaningful energy policy reform.

And he ain't Ciro Rodriguez
