This past Friday my US Representative, Hank Johnson, voted in favor of a cap and tax bill. The nominal aim of the bill is to force the US to cut the amount of carbon dioxide it produces. In reality, the bill doesn't exist, and if it ever does come into existence, it will do nothing but beggar us.

My Representative voted in favor of this bill - a last-minute substitute - after three hours of debate, and no review. He bought a pig-in-a-poke, in public, with money he's going to expropriate from me, and 300,000,000 other Americans. What a complete disgrace he is. What a complete motherf*cker.

This bill is the headline of today's AJC. The headline article is accompanied by a Q&A bit that tells us, among other things, that the bill will get us to give up our "love affair" with "gas-guzzling" cars, and break us of our "insatiable demand" for cheap electricity.

In other words, this bill will cost us money. Lots and lots of money. That, to drive the cars we like to drive, and because we prefer air conditioning.

In my opinion, the most important thing that will happen is that companies will increase the rate at which they're fleeing America. As well they should. When the political class (America's only native criminal class) votes for laws it has not read and does not understand, those who can flee should do so.

It's Jimmy Carter, all over again.
