Just to get you started, here aer a few of Hornerís blogs from this week:
You say Portugal and Ireland, I say Californina
Is this a bad time to remind readers that after Spain, touted over and over by President Obama as his model for a 'green economy' -- debt-financed temporary jobs mandating higher energy prices on top -- hurtled toward bankruptcy thanks in great part to that very scheme, the New York Time
to say oh... no... Portugal and Ireland, that's where the success was...yeah, that's it?
And, Prop 23-rejecting California, can you hear them now? The sole difference and remaining unknown is that California might possibly be forced to deal with its own mess (with residual harm throughout the US, regardless), with the ant that is the American taxpayer tired of bailing out the silly green grasshopper.
Carbon tax to pay for the bailouts!
About the developing Euro bailouts of windmill welfare-queen states, the push is on to impose the long-sought Europe-wide carbon tax (promoted by the French, who get 80% of their juice from nuclear, wink wink nudge nudge) to fund the bailout.
MU Prof John McAdams encourages your attendance by channeling his inner Al Gore.
Please, please do this. I can't think of anything that would more quickly and resolutely seal this awful mess's fate. Even (especially?) the German people will finally get it re: the 'green', and the enterprise collapses. Tying carbon taxes to bailouts will be the death knell.
Maybe we could impose a national carbon tax here to fund California's bailout? Then we really would become Europe as our president wants. We could tax West Virginia, Ohio, Virginia and a few other states into oblivion. Oh. Right. Tried that.
Did your high school teacher (or maybe your Marquette professor of English or Sociology) make you watch ďAn Inconvenient Truth?Ē

Do you get all your news from the New York Times and PBS (we have a colleague who does this and is proud of the fact)?
Then you need to know about the other side. After all, why would anybody want to hear only one side of a debate?
