The Sky is Falling! But don't worry, we will pay you for it.

This is taken from a news story on congressional activities. If this doesn't scare you silly, you are brain dead!! An under-the-radar provision in a House climate bill would give plaintiffs who claim to be victims of global warming a way to sue the federal government or businesses, according to a report Friday in The Washington Times. The Times reported that Democratic Reps. Henry Waxman of California and Edward Markey of Massachusetts added it into a bill they authored. The provision, which was just released, reportedly would set grounds for plaintiffs who has "suffered" or expect to suffer "harm" attributable at least in part to government inaction. The provision defines "harm" as "any effect of air pollution (including climate change)," according to the Times. Plaintiffs could seek up to $75,000 in damages a year from the government, with $1.5 million being the maximum total payout. The Times reported that Waxman is trying to accelerate passage for the bill through his committee, as the Senate begins drafting its own version. I especially love the "expect to suffer..." part. I sincerely hope we have not fallen off the deep end this fast! Please keep your eyes and ears open. If this makes it out of committee, we have to stop it.

The idiotic "bailouts" may already be bankrupting the country. This would end the economy as we know it.

I am riled up and close to another essay on politics, government, the constitution, etc. But, I will stop. You can read all of that and more in earlier posts. Look around.
