A peace plan we can all get behind

Commenting on the latest screwy idea from Liberals, a Department of Peacebuilding, Milton Wolf comes up with something that might actually bring more peace

Let’s rename the Department of Defense back to it’s previous name, The Department of War, and let’s get back to the business of winning them for a change. Instead of sending troops all over the globe under the slippery context of defense — or worse yet, peace — let’s return to the Department of War mindset when we actually won wars — unambiguously, unmistakably and unapologetically won wars.

It’s a sobering decision to go to war, or at least it should be. It’s a last resort option, like open-heart surgery, but sometimes it is necessary. When we hide behind euphemisms like peacekeeping or peacebuilding or even defense, we fool ourselves into protracted and seemingly inextricable conflicts. Our enemies declare war on us but we refuse to declare war on them. In the end, this is worse than war itself.

Want peace? Then decide wisely, decide soberly when the dangers before us warrant war and then officially declare it and unambiguously win it. Want peace? Then forget the hippies; call in the Department of War. 

Brilliant! Speak softly? Sure! Carry a big stick? Ye! And when you use that stick, use it with such force that no one will ever want to make you use it again!

A Reasonable Profits Board?

Uh-Uh! A Democratic sponsored bill would set up a board to regulate oil profits. Of course this same board would soon move to other “evil” profits, and then, well about those personal profits…….

It might sound like something you would read about in Atlas Shrugged–the Anti-Dog eat Dog Bill or the Equalization of Opportunity Bill–but sadly this idea of creating a “Reasonable Profits Board” to gain greater control on oil industry profits is being introduced by six Democrats in the House. In case you were wondering, the six Democrats are; Dennis Kucinich, John Conyers Jr., Bob Filner, Marcia Fudge, Jim Langevin, and Lynn Woolsey.  The bill would create this board which would be charged with implementing a “windfall profit” tax on the oil companies, up to 100%, after they reach what this unelected board (the three members would be chosen by the president) decided was a reasonable profit. However the bill doesn’t define what a reasonable profit is, that would be left up to the three member panel. And the money will then be spread around by the government and used to invest in alternative energy.

Oh Boy! Is this the ultimate Leftist wet dream or what? The Hill has some more specifics

The Gas Price Spike Act, H.R. 3784, would apply a windfall tax on the sale of oil and gas that ranges from 50 percent to 100 percent on all surplus earnings exceeding “a reasonable profit.” It would set up a Reasonable Profits Board made up of three presidential nominees that will serve three-year terms. Unlike other bills setting up advisory boards, the Reasonable Profits Board would not be made up of any nominees from Congress.

The bill would also seem to exclude industry representatives from the board, as it says members “shall have no financial interests in any of the businesses for which reasonable profits are determined by the Board.”According to the bill, a windfall tax of 50 percent would be applied when the sale of oil or gas leads to a profit of between 100 percent and 102 percent of a reasonable profit. The windfall tax would jump to 75 percent when the profit is between 102 and 105 percent of a reasonable profit, and above that, the windfall tax would be 100 percent. The bill also specifies that the oil-and-gas companies, as the seller, would have to pay this tax.

Folks, these people are Marxists, there is no other word that suits their intentions and schemes. They are the worst type of snake oil salesmen .Like I said at the start, they will eventually love to bring this to you, and your paycheck! Or perhaps your property? I mean, they would, I am sure, find it perfectly reasonable to dictate how much land, or how many homes, cars, etc you own.

Jim Webb Bashes Obama Over Lybia. UPDATED!! Crazy Uncle Joe Weighs In

Webb, like some other democrats, must get some credit for being something the Liberals usually are not. CONSISTENT! Please note that UNLIKE President Bush, Obama did NOT speak to Congress before this action. Oh, he sure got the OK of the Useless Nations though didn’t he? HMMMMM
H/T Weasel Zippers

Here is a hoot, Rep. Edward Markey Marxist has gone and played the War for Oil Card! BTW, Rep Markey, we do not import any oil from Lybia……

The United States military action against Libya is motivated by a desire for affordable and accessible oil, a top Democrat on environmental issues said Monday.

Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.), the ranking member of the House Natural Resources Committee, said that he agreed with President Obama’s decision to launch, along with allies, attacks against Libya and its leader, Moammar Gadhafi. But Markey said the attacks were primarily motivated by oil.

Ah, so Markey screams War for Oil, yet, he is OK with it? No consistency there sir! But, Dennis Kucinich, AKA Marvin the Martian, does rip Obama as he did Bush, points for consistency from Kucinich!

UPDATE! Think back to all the many many many times Democrats ripped President Bush for Iraq, and not having Congressional approval. You know, they used to say things like this nugget from Crazy Uncle Joe Biden

After studying the constitutional language governing the use of military force and the debates that the Framers had on the issue, Joe Biden determined that the Founding Fathers had vested the power to authorize even the limited use of military force in the Congress not the president—unless it was necessary for the president to act swiftly to repel an attack on the United States or to rescue U.S. citizens. Biden derided the opposite position—that the president could use military force without congressional authorization—as a “monarchist” view of presidential power.

That was in 1998, however, when Biden was in the Senate.

Today, Biden serves as vice president to a commander in chief who has just committed the U.S. military to an action in Libya that was authorized by the U.N. Security Council but was never even so much as debated in the U.S. Congress let alone put to a vote.

BLUE on BLUE!
