    The revolution will not be televised: it's been blinking along on a giant bakery sign in St. Louis, Mo., instead.

    Fed up with his congressman's vote on a sweeping climate-change bill that passed the House of Representatives in late June, the proprietor of McArthur's Bakery took to his street sign and posted a clear message to all passersby:

    "Russ Carnahan voted to ... close us and other ... small business."

    David McArthur, vice president of the 52-year-old family operation, a Gateway City institution, is one of a growing number of business owners and taxpayers nationwide who are mobilizing against the so-called cap-and-trade bill, which would levy harsh fines on energy consumption that harms the environment.

    You haven't seen anything like you're going to see if this Cap and Trade bill makes it into law. There will indeed be film at 11 if it does...

    This is great. It is the time and type of advertising people everywhere across the country will need to do.

    Make up home made signs whatever to get the message out because the politicians are not listening to the majority of their constituents.
