Is Congress regulating its way to the next crisis?

Quote of the Day: "It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what it will be tomorrow." -- James Madison (1751-1836), Father of the Constitution, 4th US President, Source: "Federalist" # 62

Politicians have a standard cure for every problem -- REGULATION. But what happens when there are so many regulations that not even the regulators can know them all, or understand what their consequences are? A case in point . . .

Widespread reliance on credit rating agencies, and a lack of knowledge about how those agencies were regulated, were major contributors to the 2008 financial meltdown.

Just this one example (explained in our sample letter below) is enough reason to reject the so-called financial reform bills being put forward by Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. Complicated regulations helped cause the 2008 mess, and they are NO part of the solution.

If you agree, please send Congress a letter telling them so.

You may borrow from or copy from this sample letter . . .

Wall Street is already the most regulated sector of the economy. Too many regulations means that even the regulators don't know them all. Jeffrey Friedman of the Cato Institute shows how this helped cause the 2008 financial meltdown.

It appears that both the banks and the Federal Reserve were unaware that a 1975 SEC rule turned S&P, Moody's, and Fitch into a legally protected oligopoly, protecting them from competition from other rating agencies!

* Commercial banks believed in the soundness of the ratings from these agencies
* Other federal regulators wrongly believed S&P, Moody's, and Fitch were subject to "market discipline"
* But because these agencies were actually protected from competition, they got sloppy, and provided unreliable ratings
* This caused many financial institutions to purchase bad mortgage pools

In other words . . .

Regulators were unaware of the regulations! So how will MORE regulations help?

New regulations constantly address "the unintended consequences of previous regulations." They never really fix anything.

Instead of over-regulating the economy, strike at the root with real reform . . .

* End subsidies and bailouts -- make companies feel the consequences of their actions
* Stop creating monopolies, as you did with the credit rating companies

More regulations cause chaos, confusion, and catastrophe. Freer markets promote caution, transparency, and long-term growth. Therefore, I want you to oppose the Frank-Dodd financial reform bill.

Will Legislators Continue to Ignore We the People?

One would think after seeing the spaniking incmumbents are receiving during the early primaries that legislators would stop legislating and start representing. But it seems that they are going to ignore the people until they are voted out.

Legislators think a national id card will stoip illegal immigrants from illegally entering our country. That is laughable at best. National id cards are a bigger risk to national security than not having one.

Putting all of our senstive information into one hackable database is just asking for trouble. While many states havbe opted out of the Real ID National ID scheme, others like NC and Deleware are going forward with it and ignoring all the dangers of haveing such a system.

Legislators are also considering Immigration Reform. Now reform means amnesty. More than 80% of Americans do not want amnesty for those who have entered our country illegally.

States like AZ have to take it upon themselves to make it illegal to be in the state illegally. They have the right to do so under the tenth amendment.

Lets face it, there are some simple solutions to control the flow of illegal immigrants into this country.

* Secure our borders - We need more than 1200 additional troops to stop the crossing
* Enforce current immigration laws
* Jail and fine employers of illegal aliens
* Cut off the social programs for illegals

These simple things will help stop the flow of those who want to enter our nation illegally, but legislators want to ignore common sense approaches and try to use the same argument they did in the last amnesty, "We cant round them up and deport them all."

Of course not, all we need to do is do more enforcement and remove the incentives, ie free health care, food stamps, and employment.

Be sure to remind your elected leaders that you will not forget come election day.

Should People be Allowed to Film/Record Police?

Apparantly in the State of Maryland it is illegal to videotape the police or anyone in public without their consent.

It seems that the legislators in Maryland had a good idea, prevent people from being videotaped without their permission.

This would make it easier to convict the freaks who like to take images of people in ways they dont like.

However it seems they left out the fact that Public officials and employees do not have the expectation of privacy.

While the guy acted like a buffoon and was driving like an idiot, he deservingly received his ticket, but tapping a police officer can benefit both officer and the person be subjected to any type of confrontation with an officer.

One has to wonder if the legislators made a mistake when creating this law or if they purposely made it so broad as a means to keep their faces off the likes of youtube and the local news when they are seen doing something wrong or illegal.

If the police can rightfully videotape criminals then the people should have the right to videotape the authorities and public officials, otherwise they have no incentives to behave accordingly because after all any video made without their consent could be confiscated before it is made public.

The people of Maryland should stand up and tell their legislators that this legislation needs to change.

Joe Sestak Needs to Come Clean

Joe Sestak has admitted that the White House has offered him a job to stay out of the Senatorial primary, but neither he nor the White House will come clean with the details.

The people of PA and the US have the right to know about the secretive deals coming out of the Obama administration. We want to know what our representatives were promised when they supported obamacare and the bailouts.

I am sure that this tactic isn't new, but We the people expect to be represented by our legislators and not have them sellout to the highest bidder for them to increase their personal gain.

Rest assured Americans do not care about the party affiliation, what they do care about is the integrity of our legislature.

Those in DC both Democrats and Republicans are being sent home as a result of these types of deals and as a result or simply ignoring the will of the people.

The primaries are just the beginning of the change that is reshaping our political culture. The November elections will bring forth even further change. Those members of the Senate who are not up for re-0election until 2012 and have ignored our voices, should start looking for new employment now.

Joe Sestak if you have been paying attention and you want to win the senatorial seat should come clean now or suffer the consequences at the polls.

Byrdie Watch 2010 - What Happened to Senator Byrd?

The Wall Street Reform Bill vote on Thursday was missing one of the most auspicious members of the Senate. Sources in Washington have revealed that absent from the vote was Senator Robert Byrd.

“We thought maybe someone forgot to bring him out from the cloak room before the vote,” commented one White House reporter.

However, after an exhaustive search of the Congressional grounds most concluded that Byrd had decided to start his weekend a bit early.

We caught up with him at the villa he rents in Mexico. “I just couldn’t sit through another one of those votes,” Byrd said as he sipped on a Margarita. “Besides these weekends are what has kept me going for the past fifty year’s in Congress.”

H.R. 4173 (Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009 )easily passed the Senate without Senator Byrd's or Senator Arlen Specter.

Republican Senators Brown (R-MA), Grassley (R-IA)& Snowe (R-ME), hopeful not to be thrown by the wayside voted to support the Legislation that will do nothing to prevent future bailouts of financial institutions, but only increases federal control.

Some are speculating that Senator Specter still upset that his party threw him out on his backside during the Senatorial primaries, may have jumped on the same plane with Senator Bryd. So far, we have yet to confirm that report.

Upon further investigation we have learned that a law was quietly passed in 1999 allowing Byrd to receive vacations every weekend for the rest of his life, paid for by our taxpayer dollars. Perhaps the secret to Byrd’s longevity in Congress is due to something special in the water here. Now only one question remains, where will Byrdie spend Memorial Day Weekend?

Help Wanted Incumbents Need Not Apply

The people are specking and the incumbents are falling. Well actully they fell when they stopped listening to the people who voted them in and only heard those special interest groups with the deep pockets whispering sweet nothings and the promises of a lifetime seat.

Clearly the incumbents fell for it hook line and sinker. They decided to piss on the Constitution and trample the rights of American people and now the people are speaking up with their ballots.

"Enough already" has been the mantra of people on both sides of the seat. The constitutionalists hand Libertarians have been shouting this to deaf ears long before the bailouts and the HCR control bill, but more Americans are waking up.

The American people do not care how long you have been in office and what seniority you have in the Senate or House, if you ignored them, they are voting you out and hiring those who will pay attention.

It looks like America's political face is about to get an extreme makeover and it will not be just Republicans or just Democrats controlling the legislator. Nope Americans are going to see candidates who are liberty minded individuals who want less government intrusion and more accountability.

The time is now.

Can you see the government's hidden role in the BP oil spill?

Quote of the Day: "Government's view of the economy can be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it." -- Ronald Reagan (paraphrased)

The politicians meddle with everything. For example, when it comes to energy production there are . . .

* Direct subsidies
* Tax breaks and tax penalties
* Liability limits, but also potential fines if you don't do things just right

What a meddling muddle! This is why . . .

It's fair to say that the federal government played a hidden role in the BP oil spill. To learn more read the sample letter to Congress below.

We think it would be better . . .

* For oil companies to pay all the costs and carry all the potential risks of each drilling project
* To have all of these costs and risks reflected in the prices consumers pay, rather than hidden in legislation and regulations

In other words, there should be . . .

* No subsidies or special tax breaks
* No liability limits
* No tax-funded bailouts, or government run clean-up funds
* And regulations should be provided by insurance companies who are putting their own money at risk

If, after reading the sample letter to Congress below, you agree with us that this approach would better protect both the environment and the taxpayer, then please send Congress a letter telling them that. You can use's No Bailouts campaign to send your letter.

You may borrow from or copy this sample letter . . .

The BP oil spill is another example of the destructive nature of government guarantees and bailouts.

I know that BP has agreed to pay more of the clean-up costs, beyond the government-provided liability cap. I also know that they've been threatened by Congress and the Administration if they don't. But this is hypocritical, because Congress created the liability cap and the clean up fund in the first place! In 1990, Congress passed a law that . . .

* capped oil company liability for spills at $75 million
* set up a fund, paid for by the oil companies, to pay for the rest of the clean-up

In effect, this is a government-run oil spill insurance program, but without the risk management incentives provided by real insurance companies. This whole scheme was a terrible idea from the start, and has been used to bail out companies that cause oil spills a whopping 51 times!
Because of the liability cap, BP may have been less cautious than it would have been if its own money had been at risk.

In addition, a lack of regulation has been blamed for the BP spill. But government regulators . . .

* don't have the profit and loss incentive that private insurance companies do; they don't go out of business for their mistakes
* tend to impose one-size-fits all rules that don't work as well as the site-specific requirements that insurance companies impose
* and often act as partners in the industry they regulate, not as watchdogs

But imagine if we had a free market in energy . . .

* Oil companies would be liable for ALL the damage they cause
* And this would compel them to seek liability insurance in the private market

In turn, insurance companies would . . .

* demand the strictest standards to prevent accidents and spills because, unlike government regulators, they would be financially responsible for any mishaps
* and, if the risks are too great, they would deny coverage

If off-shore drilling is too risky, that means no one in a free market will invest in it, and entrepreneurs would then have a huge incentive to develop less-risky energy alternatives. This would be a good thing! This is what you politicians claim to want!

This means that a true free market in energy would actually reduce accidents and CREATE A CLEANER ENVIRONMENT.

I therefore demand that you put an end to government meddling in energy production.

1) Instead of raising the liability cap for oil spills, remove all government liability caps on all forms of energy production
2) Instead of inefficient and counter-productive government regulations, allow private insurance to set requirements for off-shore oil drilling and other forms of energy production, such as nuclear, which is also currently protected by government liability limits
3) Get rid of all subsidies, tax breaks, and tax penalties so that we can benefit from free and fair competition among all energy producers

Once these three market-based policies are in place, energy companies will bear the true capital expense of their projects -- instead of the taxpayers. Risky and dangerous projects will flop. But profitable projects should be allowed to proceed -- including drilling for oil.

Take Action to STOP Cap and Tax

One day, you hear a loud knock on your front door.

But it's not a neighbor visiting or someone trying to sell you a subscription.

Instead, it's a federal agent -- the federal government's newest threat to your liberty coming to check your household appliances . . . your light bulbs . . . your thermostat . . . and this is NO JOKE.

Believe me, I wish it was.

But should Cap and Tax pass, what I just described could be EXACTLY what you and I see in home after home, town after town all across our country -- along with skyrocketing home electric and heating prices.

That's why it's vital you sign the petition to your U.S. senators, demanding they vote against this dangerous power grab IMMEDIATELY.

You see, Cap and Tax has been revived and is moving through Congress right now, with select weak-kneed Republicans like Lindsey Graham and John McCain looking to make deals to pass this key plank in the radical globalist agenda.

Because make no mistake, that's what Cap and Tax is all about. More government control. More INTERNATIONAL control, with the corresponding loss of freedom and sovereignty.

There's really no other way to put it -- Cap and Tax would give the federal government UNPRECEDENTED control over the private sector -- and our very lives.

Big Government bureaucrats in Washington would effectively be able to tax businesses for emitting more carbon dioxide than they think is "appropriate."

Just as bad, they'll be able to demand you change your way of living -- forcing you to "retrofit" your house with "government-approved" light bulbs, refrigerators, water heaters, toilets, air conditioners, and whatever else they can dream up.

And don't think for a second they won't send around federal jackboots to make sure you're complying.

In fact, the Cap and Tax Bill SPECIFICALLY AUTHORIZES just such intrusive home visits by government snoops.

And combine that with the expanded power of jackbooted federal thugs under the so-called Patriot Act (which was recently reauthorized), and you have a recipe for Americans, for the first time in our memory, not being safe and secure in their own homes.

Of course, that's bad enough. But just like the recently passed nationalized health care mandate, Cap and Tax is just another excuse for Big Government to reach its greedy little hands into our wallets.

If passed, Cap and Tax would:

*** Increase taxes by $650 BILLION, virtually guaranteeing that our economy gets even worse and NEVER recovers;

*** Result in over ONE MILLION lost American jobs per year, as energy-intensive industries are forced to shut their doors or move overseas;

*** Allow Big Government politicians to decide which businesses get taxpayer subsidies and which ones are shut down, virtually guaranteeing massive corruption on a scale we've never seen before in the United States.

And don't believe the lies. This bill has nothing to do with the environment.

In fact, the best experts agree Cap and Tax will have almost zero impact on the environment anyway -- except, of course, for lost jobs, higher taxes, and blighted small towns and rural communities.

So what is Cap and Tax really about?

Raw government POWER.

Government POWER to tax.

Government POWER to enter your home to "check for compliance."

And government POWER to control the economy, our lives and our freedom.

Just take a look at Spain -- the Cap-and-Taxers' "shining" example of an eco-socialist paradise.

There, unemployment is approaching 20% and rising.

And what about all those new "green" jobs Cap and Tax apologists are claiming will be generated?

In Spain, for every new "green" job created (at a taxpayer cost of $800,000, EACH mind you), 2.2 economically-productive jobs are destroyed!

The fact is, passage of Cap and Tax could send our economy nose-diving off a cliff!

So it's never been more important that you act TODAY.

The good news is, Campaign for Liberty has a plan to fight back.

But, I'm afraid, unless you act IMMEDIATELY, Cap and Tax will become law.

I won't mince words. Our backs are against the wall. Already, Big Government politicians on both sides of the aisle have rammed this bill through the U.S. House.

And President Barack Obama would love nothing more than to flash a grin for his pals in the national media as he signs Cap and Tax into law.

So that means our ONE CHANCE to stop this radical bill is the U.S. Senate.

And there, our job isn't easy. Just like in the House, there are pro-Cap and Tax senators in both parties.

But there is good news.

There are also a lot of VERY nervous senators in both parties. In fact, even John McCain is now wavering from his past support for Cap and Tax, as he faces conservative primary opposition in his reelection.

They're nervous because they see the anger in the eyes of the voters. They know they rammed through a health care bill opposed by over 60% of Americans.

They know they passed a huge tax increase.

They know they've added trillions to our exploding national debt.

And these senators are nervous because they know that so far freedom-loving folks like you have fought back against other freedom-grabbing schemes – and are making real progress in our fight to reign in the out-of-control Fed.

They're nervous because we've exposed their assaults on our liberty.

So now, in this latest fight, many senators are riding the fence.

They're afraid of what YOU'LL do to them if they vote to ram Cap and Tax into law.

So today, our job is to KNOCK those senators off the fence and squarely onto our side by sending a very LOUD and very CLEAR message to the U.S. Senate . . .

. . . Any politician who votes FOR Cap and Tax should look for another job.

P.S. H.R. 2454, the Cap and Tax Bill, has already been rammed through the U.S. House, and our ONE CHANCE is to stop the bill in the Senate.

If passed, the Cap and Tax Bill could send the entire U.S. economy nose-diving off a cliff, and you and I will be handing unprecedented control of our lives to the federal government.

That's why it's vital you sign the petition IMMEDIATELY, along with a generous contribution of, or even TODAY!

Unbelievable, Kerry & Lieberman introduce Cap & Trade today

Unbelievable, Kerry & Lieberman introduce Cap & Trade today
By Kyle Prast
May 12, 2010 3:00 p.m.

File this bill under Bad Bills & Ideas That Just Won't Die. (There are so many, one cannot get to them all.) Today, Senator Kerry and Lieberman are introducing Cap and Trade to the U.S. Senate. You know, the bill that all pronounced dead earlier this year--the one that didn't have a chance of passage this year. But you see, the issue is NOT capping carbon emissions to save the planet from Global Warming, the issue is taxing you more and controlling your life.

"The Senate bill would set up an emission trading program for utilities starting in 2013. Factories and other “industrial sources” would join the cap-and-trade program in 2016."

The bill proposes cutting greenhouse gases by 17% below their 2005 levels in 10 years. Never mind that CO2 has since been shown to have no affect on warming and that the planet has not been warming in the past 10 years.

Never mind that those involved in the Carbon Exchange, like U.W. Madison Prof. Joel Rogers admit that "it is all about the money and if we stopped ALL emissions in the U.S., it would make absolutely no difference". (My Emphasis throughout post)

It is estimated that this legislation will cost the average U.S. homeowner an extra $600 - $1,000/year on their utility bills. Wisconsin will be hit harder because so much of our electricity comes from coal fired plants.

This type of Cap and Trade legislation has already proven itself to be useless in controlling CO2 emissions and detrimental to the economies of Europe. You know, Europe, that is having their own economic woes?

Chris Horner from National Review sums this bill up as an opportunity to transfer wealth. He also points to the devastating effect of carbon taxing on Europe's economy: "I have a take on the lesson for us from Europe amid this debate over at Energy Tribune, written over the weekend but consistent with an emerging meme: we are willfully rushing headlong into the same debt, through the very same mandates, that has broken Europe. The system doesn’t work. And our political class doesn’t care. They’ve got a fundamental transformation to impose — as I describe in Power Grab. It’s not too late to learn their plan and their tricks."

In another piece from Energy Tribune, Today's Greece, Tomorrow's America: How Obama's Health Care and Energy Agendas Really End: "The most troubling aspect of the West’s current policy turmoil is not the European meltdown led by Greece and Spain. It is instead President Barack Obama’s unflinching insistence on rushing America headlong into the very mandates, and resulting debt levels, that precipitated that meltdown."

"Obama is scripting a repeat of Europe’s disaster, here, by cramming down on the American people the same policy fetishes our Left has obsessed about for decades, and which Europe used to bring this down upon itself: statist management of health care and energy."

Our U.S. economy is hanging on by a thread. The CBO just came out with the report that ObamaCare could cost twice as much as originally thought: CBO Doubles Some Health Care Spending Estimates. Now our Senate is poised on adding another economy/job killer bill?

The House version knew Cap and Trade would adversely affect our economy. It even "included two years of unemployment assistance for workers who lose their jobs as a result of this 'jobs bill.' "

Can Obama Pick A Winner?

Obama picks a winner

Solicitor General and President Barack Obama's latest nominee is Elena Kagan, class of 1981. At the Ivy League school, she was a student newspaper editor. Her senior thesis was on socialist politics in New York City. (

Obama has had his share of picks since he was sworn in and many of those have been extremely questionable. If you have paid attention to politics over the past several years, then you should know who they are.

His first supreme court pick was Sonya Sotomayor who said she could do the job better than any gray haired white man, but of course that wasn't construed as racist.

Now, he is picking someone who appears to in favor of socialist politics and is opposed to the 'don't ask don't tell' policy of the US armed forces claiming it is a "Moral injustice."

CBS News reported that she would be the first openly gay supreme court justice if she is nominated. The Obama administration has refuted that story, so who knows and who cares. She already has a bias towards those who have chosen the homosexual lifestyle as Sotomayor has made remarks against those who are Caucasians.

The simple fact that Elena Kagan has not one minute of experience as a judge should be enough to disqualify her for the bench of the highest court of the Land. Years of experience and insight are needed to rule on cases that go before the Supreme Court and like most Americans I simply don't believe she qualifies.

Obama is great at picking people, but he seems much more qualified at picking his nose.
