Stealth Carbon Taxes Already Robbing Citizens Blind

Art Horn from the EnergyTribune.com reveals:

Ready to pull the plug yet?

Ready to pull the plug yet?

Depending on what state you live in, you may be paying taxes on your energy bill to help stop global warming. That’s right, you may have been enlisted as a soldier in the war against climate change and you may not even know it! And as a soldier in this war, depending on your state’s policies you have no choice whether to fight or not … I wonder how many millions of people around the country pay their utility bills each month and have no idea what they are funding?

Enviro-Statists Get Antarctic Cruises Banned

No more cruises, but you can still fly a jumbo jet to Antarctica! Go figure.

No more cruises, but you can still fly a jumbo jet to Antarctica! Go figure.

If you’ve ever considered taking a cruise to Antarctica, now is the time to do it. Beginning Aug. 1, 2011, large cruise ships will be banned from Antarctic waters because the “heavy” fuel they carry poses risks to penguins, seals, polar bears, whales, glaciers, icebergs and the chilly seas.

The Miami Herald reports that Princess Cruises, Oceania and Regent will be making their final voyages to the region in 2010 while Holland America plans to modify its fuel to something more environmentally-friendly, should their ships sink. Celebrity Cruises says it will switch its fuel, as well, but only if legally required.

“The reasoning is that a spillage of this type of fuel is considered too much of a risk—and accidents do happen, as we witnessed in 2007, when Gap Adventures’ M/S Explorer was holed by ice and sank,” explains the South Atlantic News Agency.

Interestingly, a 2007 post-accident report from the International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators (IAATO) explained that the M/S Explorer sinking posed “no adverse affects on the environment.”

Here we go again with another draconian ban that stops business dead in its tracks. Countless human beings have been killed in transportation accidents over the past century, yet not once have we seen a ban on airplanes, automobiles, motorcycles, boats or bicycles. Now, when an oil rig or cruise ship sinks, all business is drawn to a grinding halt as to never endanger wildlife ever again.

Chime-in below with your explanation for why and how enviro-statists are able to get away with this.

Obesity Alarmists Want Citizens to Surrender to the State

You've been warned!

You've been warned!

Conservative talk show host Mark Levin includes an enormous list of global warming alarmists’ propaganda efforts that have been promoted by the State-Run Media in his best-selling book, Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto. Inspired by Levin’s efforts to expose the fear mongers as sensationalist frauds, the Nanny State Liberation Front has compiled its own list of radical claims made by pseudo-journalists who have charged themselves with saving us all from the so-called obesity ‘epidemic.’

Below, we list a slew of recent news articles from across the globe detailing the various illnesses, diseases, ailments and side-effects of obesity that seem to effect every human being with a pulse. Unless you adhere to the lifestyle behavior modifications as prescribed by nanny state bureaucrats and junk scientists that support their radical agendas to control every aspect of your life, you are doomed to a life of obesity-induced misery, as evidenced by the following reports:

That’s all we have for now. We’ll be sure to continue adding to this list as we discover new scare tactics being devised by nanny state bureaucrats for dissemination by their lap dogs in the media.

Now that you have just read our list spotlighting obesity alarmists’ efforts to scare Americans in to modifying their lifestyles and behaviors, we find it critical to note that, in his book, Levin warns of “Statists” utilizing the media to manipulate citizens by creating crisis upon crisis to force them in to total submission to governmental authority, ultimately, surrendering themselves to a ‘greater’ power that they have been trained to believe knows what is best for themselves and their families:

With the assistance of pliant or sympathetic media, the Statist uses junk science, misrepresentations, and fear mongering to promote public health and environmental scares, because he realizes that in a true, widespread health emergency, the public expect the government to act aggressively to address the crisis, despite traditional limitations on governmental authority. The more dire the threat, the more liberty people are usually willing to surrender. This scenario is tailor-made for the Statist. The government’s authority becomes part of the societal frame of reference, only to be built upon during the next “crisis.”

Tired of big government bureaucrats trying to tell you that you’re too stupid to make critical decisions with regards to your own lifestyle and behaviors? Join the Nanny State Liberation Front and strike back before they deal the final blow to all of your freedom and liberties!
