Stealth Carbon Taxes Already Robbing Citizens Blind

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?

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!

Electric ‘Obamawagen’ Will Zap Taxpayers

The Chevy Volt, just like Obama's unicorn will be fueled by rainbows and hope!

The Chevy Volt, just like Obama's unicorn will be fueled by rainbows and hope!

Government Motors (GM) started taking customers’ orders this week for the Chevy Volt, a $41,000 electric car that “emerged from the cake at GM’s 100th birthday in 2008, and was instantly dubbed the ‘Barack Obama of automobiles,'” reports Canada’s Financial Post.

New owners of the ‘Obamawagen’ will recieve $7,500 subsidy from the U.S. government for their eco-friendly purchase and those lucky tree huggers in California will get “another couple of thousand bucks” in subsidies from the state and its taxpayers.

“Hope? Massive. Substance? Not so much,” says the Financial Post about the Volt’s promise to change the automotive industry, just like Obama tried to do. “President Obama has said that he wants a million plug-ins on the road by 2015. No way, and a good thing too. When it comes to energy independence, the necessary subsidies would likely do far more damage to the economy than anything petrotyrannies might threaten. And they can still sell their oil to China anyway.”

The Obamas’ Political Obesity
FrontPageMag.com; July 20, 2010
“President Obama’s decision to put his wife in charge of the battle against childhood obesity is reminiscent of Bill Clinton’s decision to let his wife, Hillary, run the 1993 effort to create national health-care reform. Each greatly enlarged the political persona of both women. But in both cases, neither woman was an expert in the field they were chosen to direct.”

‘Green’ Author Links Air Conditioning to Global Destruction and Obesity

Needless suffering: It's a 'green' thing

Needless suffering: It's a 'green' thing

The Washington Post on Sunday didn’t let a good crisis go to waste, allowing a ‘green’ author to manipulate the D.C. region’s recent heatwave and scold readers for seeking comfort from the 100-plus-degree heat inside their air conditioned homes. Stan Cox, a “plant breeder” from Kansas, claims that despite serious health risks posed by the scorching heat, they are far outweighed by the potential environmental detriment caused by air conditioners, as well as an increased risk of obesity.

“In a country that’s among the world’s highest greenhouse-gas emitters, air conditioning is one of the worst power-guzzlers,” opined Cox. “A.C.’s obvious public-health benefits during severe heat waves do not justify its lavish use in everyday life for months on end.”

According to Cox, suffering needlessly from heat stroke and heat exhaustion is the price we must all pay in order to be good stewards of the earth. He explained in a July 5 Salon.com article that “a lot of the health problems that we need A.C. to solve, it may have contributed to in the first place.”

Cox says that air conditioning is likely the root cause of asthma and probably complicates symptoms suffered by those with allergies, so he suggests that is even more reason why those suffering from respiratory illnesses should avoid using air conditioners in their homes and parents of small children would be wise to do the same.

“[W]e need to consider the hypotheses that say that the current epidemic of those conditions is partly caused by lack of outdoor exposure to soil and friendly organisms,” Cox said. “Maybe if children were out in the yard making mud pies instead of in a cool, sterile environment all day long, they might have a lot more defense against those problems.”

Further, Cox warned that air conditioning is contributing to the so-called obesity ‘epidemic.’

“[W]e get into a downward spiral with air conditioning, because science shows that our biological tolerance for the heat is eroded if we spend almost all of our time in climate-controlled bubbles,” Cox said. “And it’s suspected of being a factor in weight gain because we tend to eat more when we’re in cool conditions.”

We’re going to love to hear what Cox thinks about those electric cars that will soon hit the roads and suck electricity from the same carbon-belching, coal-burning power plants that keep air conditioners humming all summer long. At least air conditioner use is seasonal — electric cars will be tapping in to the power grid all year long to recharge their batteries for several hours at a shot.
