HDR 131: Qaddafi’s March Madness
Hey Barry/Barack – have you noticed what’s happening in Libya? I realize you need to play golf and pick brackets for the NCAA basketball tournament, but seriously – have you noticed? Qaddafi has won and the people who were fighting for democracy lost (kinda like what happened in Iran last year while you sat back and did nothing.) In fact, Hillary announced that she would not be Secretary of State under a second 0bama administration (God forbid that should happen. Besides, I still think she’s planning to challenge him.) Anyhow, Barry/Barack, here’s an update from Libya: Qaddafi Bombs Benghazi as Son Says ‘Too Late’ for No-Fly Zone Over Libya – Bloomberg
The ongoing tragedy in Japan is horrible. And the lamestream media are eating it all up. What a perfect opportunity to sabotage nuclear energy as a viable option in the United States! They are nearly foaming at the mouth with dire predictions and doomsday scenarios – you’d think they’d been exposed to some type of radioactive substance that makes one not only stupid but a sycophant. At least the Wall Street Journal is a voice of reason in the media. Here’s an excerpt from today:
“After a once-in-300-years earthquake, the Japanese have been keeping cool amid the chaos, organizing an enormous relief and rescue operation, and generally earning the world’s admiration. We wish we could say the same for the reaction in the U.S., where the troubles at Japan’s nuclear reactors have produced an overreaction about the risks of modern life and technology.
Part of the problem is the lack of media proportion about the disaster itself. The quake and tsunami have killed hundreds, and probably thousands, with tens of billions of dollars in damage. The energy released by the quake off Sendei is equivalent to about 336 megatons of TNT, or 100 more megatons than last year’s quake in Chile and thousands of times the yield of the nuclear explosion at Hiroshima. The scale of the tragedy is epic.
Yet the bulk of U.S. media coverage has focused on a nuclear accident whose damage has so far been limited and contained to the plant sites. In simple human terms, the natural destruction of Earth and sea have far surpassed any errors committed by man.” (Read more at the Wall Street Journal: Review & Outlook: Nuclear Overreactions – WSJ.com)

**FreedomWorks CALL TO ACTION** Please use this to contact your local congressional representatives: Don’t Let the Obama Administration Get Away with Backdoor Cap and Trade! | FreedomWorks
Ask them to support “The Energy Tax Prevention Act of 2011” (S. 482 in the Senate & H.R. 910 in the House). This bold legislation would completely strip EPA of its ability to use the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gases, effectively stopping Obama’s back door cap and trade strategy dead in its tracks.

Some good news:
Final Thought: “I am not among those who fear the people. They, and not the rich, are our dependence for continued freedom. And to preserve their independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude.” –Thomas Jefferson
