Trash the EPA

If there was ever a reason to reduce the size of government it is the current debate about cow farts. The EPA wants to impose a tax on every cow in the country to reduce the amount of methane they produce. The argument is that methane contributes to global warming. Sun flares do too.  If you think I am kidding go to the cow fart tax website to learn more.

If the EPA had a gram of brain power they would have suggested a tax incentive for farmers that capture the methane. We are looking for alternative sources of energy why not cow farts? We capture methane from land fills, so it is totally rational to believe we could capture the gas escaping a cows ass. Instead of putting farmers out of business with this asinine proposal, the EPA would become the heroes of the energy world.

I think we could save more methane by eliminating the entire EPA. After all, their people fart too. Our congress is also a major gas producer. They regularly spew the most horrific stinking laws, and tax increases. They make a cow’s output more like perfume. The idea of the tax is enough to convince me that the EPA minds are in a state of decay. What I have left out of the equation however, is the input from POTUS.

Obama loves a good cow fart

Simple Choice

We have a very simple choice ahead of us tomorrow. We vote for one of two philosophies. First we have to decide if we want Uncle Sam, or Uncle Obama to take care of us from cradle to grave. If we do, we are admitting we are unable to do so for ourselves. The second choice leaves us free to choose how we are to live, make a living, worship, and spend our money.

Its easy for me to make that choice. My parents taught me a lesson in self dependence. Both of them came to this country seeking a new life. They were sixteen and seventeen when they arrived with a single bag of belongings. They didn’t speak the language, they had about a fourth grade education, they were a thousand miles from the closest friend or relative. Somehow they managed to get to Chicago, meet each other, marry, have four kids, educate them in parochial schools, and retire. They didn’t have Uncle Sam to care for them cradel to grave, they had something better. They had their God given talents, and the motivation to live. They brushed aside the bigoted references to “Greenhorn, or Hunky. They had a desire to raise their kids to have a better life. They loved each other “for better or for worse.” They didn’t even think of divorce. They might have thought about  how to kill each other once in awhile, but never divorce. If they were alive today, they would vote Republican for the first time in their lives. Why? Because the Republican philosophy of small government aligns with the way they lived.

Mom and Dad taught us to be self sufficient. They advised us to own land, because “if you have land you will never starve.”  As I write this, I am dreaming about the vegetable garden I will plant in 2009, to sustain us in the coming financial crisis. That is, if I can still afford to pay my mortgage and I still live here. 

The choice is easy, vote for someone to take care of you. Or vote for the liberty to care for yourself. Remember our history. It is filled with stories of “pioneers,” who left their countries and their homes to live free! Use your vote wisely.

I see It and Believe It

This election has me in a quandry. I see the B.O. making many great moves. I see him using PMA techniques in everything he has done, and I am more convinced than ever, that positive works, while negative sucks. When I watch B.O. give his speeches, it is obvious that he sees himself as President, and acts like the goal is in his pocket. Those two attributes are among the commandments of the positive mental attitude, and the goal achieving gurus. How many times have I heard the phrase, “see yourself owning the dream,” or “act like you own it.” “If you can see it, and believe it, you can have it.”  What B.O. has not shown is his vision for our country. Just once, I’d love to hear him define “Change,” in tems that we can all get our hands on, and not change that is all “smoke and mirrors.”

My political philosophy is the complete opposite of B.O.’s, and I will not vote for him, but I can see the desire in his soul. It concerns me that his total commitment to the strong tools of PMA will work against my own dreams.

What do “I See and Believe?” I see our country strong and powerful. I see our country making allies with every leader in the world. I see a country that continues to draw people from all areas of the world because this is the land of opportunity. I see a government that works to give people liberty to make things happen for themselves, and not one that disincentivizes its citizens by legislating what and how to do everything. The way to do that is to reduce the size of government. B.O. wants to make the government larger to provide more of us with less. Not a single government employee contributes to the development of “goods and services” that can be traded. Let us do what is important, in ways that are cost effective. I see a country where people have real jobs performing services and producing goods that  are a benefit to mankind. I see our senators and congressman serving for the good of the people and not their careers. I see a country where our spokesman are ordinary men and women  with backgrounds like salesmen, teachers, engineers, doctors, but not lawyers.  I see a country where men and women create new and exciting products and services because they are free to do so. I see a country weaned off fossil fuels and not dependent on any dictator for energy. I see a country where men have a strong  belief in God, and worship freely.

My vision for our country is very much like Ronald Reagan’s “Shining City on the Hill.” I believe it, and I see it. I see my vision more clearly than the B.O. sees his Leninist vision of our country. He sees it  ruled by legislation meant to equalize all of us into mindless receivers of a handout from Big Brother.
