The six billion dollar man

If Nick Smith is successful in passing his ETS legislation it will cost New Zealand families Six Billion Dollars for no environmental gain. We could reduce emissions 200% below 1990 levels and it wouldn't affect the climate at all. All it can do is make us Six Billion Dollars poorer.

I will be posting this every week for the next month or three just to keep reminding everyone.

If you get bored with it go read Red Alert or The Standard.

It just goes to show that National are a bunch of socialists - ETS is just a disguised tax targeted specifically at the productive to benefit the non productive.

Great Post!

Don't give up, the message will get through and one day people will look back on this nonsense in much the same way as we now look back on the Salem Witch Trials.

We must stop the government.
I want smaller polar bears.
I want them as big as cute, sweet and cuddly spring lambs!

What's going on at No Minister? No real fresh posts since Thursday.

Sorry Red. We've split them all up and used them for battens.

(That's a fifty year old joke)

Maybe some of us are busy and there's not much notable which has not already been done to death elsewhere.

Obama's passe and anyway FFM is in love with him, John Key's cruising, Goff's boring, the Slack Caps are losing and Winston is off limits. Now if somehow it became known that a certain Labour Party front bencher was shacking up with a National Party electorate office manager then we might have something to say. Do you know anything about it? As far as I know there's nothing in the story.

You see, if we were journalists, that's how we would pass the time.

If you are at a loose end you could pop back to nz.general. The lefties are all out of their cages.

Fairfacts Media, if you linkwhore once again you will be banned from comments. Understand?

Like Redbaiter, I've been wondering what has happened to you guys as well.

As for linkwhoring, I must have picked up some bad habits from someone.

Erm, what was his name again :)

Anyway, I often link to No Minister from my posts.


So hopefully, you get traffic from me in return.
