Cap and trade is a scheme to enrich people like Al Gore and transfer hundreds of billions of dollars to foreign governments.

Clean energy funding could be a great idea. It's where stimulus spending should have been directed. It's where what's left of stimulus spending should be directed. And it should not be funnelled through clueless state and local governments. It should be spent pursuant to a strategic plan, developed and implemented by people who know what they are doing, without respect to the wishes of our pork obsessed politicians, with identifiable, viable, and measurable goals, and should only be spent on American business.

What are the chances of that happening?

interesting article too in time about how the administration is all but lying about the "foreign campaign contributions" from the chamber of commerce to drum up its base. Shameful, just shameful. maybe we could get some of this in wonkbook tomorrow? Well, I guess not.,8599,2025368,00.html

Are you looking to refinance your mortgage? Best way is to contact at least three to five lenders for input on mortgage programs and rates. Also search online for "123 Mortgage Refinance" since refinanced my loan to 3.29% with my OK credit history.
