    Waxman Says Republicans are Like Terrorists | Verum Serum


    This happened yesterday and so far there’s no video:

    California Rep. Henry Waxman, the top Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the coauthor of the 2009 cap-and-trade climate change bill, decried efforts by the GOP to force the Obama administration into approving a permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline.

    “They want to use legislation as a way to act like terrorists. They hold things as hostage,” Waxman said. “We almost couldn’t fund the government because Republicans wanted to hold that idea hostage, we almost couldn’t pay our debts because the Republicans wanted to hold that legislation hostage to their extreme agenda, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they scuttled this conference by trying to hold us hostage.”​

    This is literally being held up over concerns about global warming. So a country that needs jobs and energy is going to be denied them on the basis of carbon dioxide, which is not a pollutant, contributing to a small temperature increase over 100 years.

    Most significantly, the failure to transfer this energy to the US does not mean the energy will lie untouched in the ground. It means that it will instead be sold to China where there are no pollution controls to speak of. So this decision will actually make things worse than otherwise. And for this, Republicans get labeled terrorists.

    The democrat administration sent over 2,000 illegal weapons to Mexico, one of which killed a Border Patrol officer and an estimated hundreds of Mexican civilians. I'd risk including that as an example of terrorism.

    Bush started sending the illegal weapons to Mexico with "Project Gunwalker" in 2006, so Bush was sending guns to Mexico much longer than Obama when the officer was killed, now prove it wasn't one of Bush's guns that killed him.
