The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
ROFL - I had to email that to my Lefty parents, my dad the shop-teacher especially! :-)
Look at a small piece of what Obama said:
"So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted.
"That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches.
"The only thing I've said with respect to coal, I haven't been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as a ideological matter as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it."
He would prevent the building of coal-fired power plants. He would do so, not by preventing it through due process of law, but through taxing them into bankruptcy if they try. Yet he simultaneously believes that power companies would try anyway and so this would generate billions of dollars in revenue to the gubmint.
This illustrates the mindset which holds that changing tax rates has no effect on the economic activity that is taxed. It is the clearest case of cognitive dissonance I have ever seen in a presidential candidate.
Oh.... now I get it. I was right.
Mark really IS voting for Obama *because* his understanding of the world is comparable to that of Trig Palin.
The cartoon would be funnier if it wasn't so close to the truth.
Mark is voting for Obama because it makes him feel good about himself.
