Wonder what our libe(R)tarian friends are up to these days?

Wonder no more. They're up to their usual antics.

Destroying the Planet for fun and profit.

"AFP said on its website: “Over the next several weeks, the online ads will alert activists to urge their lawmakers to block carbon taxes, support domestic production, and get government out of the way of abundant, affordable energy sources.”"

Watch for their lies on a TV near you.

The part that really cracks me up???

When they mention "affordable", we just topped $4 a gallon around here, so I have to wonder, affordable for who?

Their apparent reason?

They let their Midwest refineries fall into disrepair.

Pretty convenient, with reserves at record levels.

We were at $4.28 yesterday. Don't expect much argument for the right wing shillin' folks.

I would expect them to find the political angle.

For all their demands about non-partisanship, they always resort to that angle.

After all, it's one of the reasons they want tro buy up even more press outlets.

The report that we kept posting last year stated that the price of gas would rise in the Midwest. It's the same shit that we saw last year that is playing out. I don't expect too much from MSM. It is also why I don't get the faux war between NBC and Fux news.

The main thing they both ignore is the Koch influence.

And never a word about ALEC.

But, hey one more argument about ideology might do the trick. How about a round of voluntary poverty and do without with the psychological twist of desiring poverty because it is good for you?

Ain't they assholes?

And that's not all folks!!!

They're using the SPN and ALEC in Maine, with the aid of the teabagge(R)s, to attempt to dismantle a successful, alternate energy program.

Court to Feds: Oil Permit in Beluga Habitat Was Illegal

Beluga whaleThe extremely endangered white whales of Alaska's Cook Inlet are now dodging fewer bullets -- i.e., powerful underwater blasts from seismic airguns. Last week a judge ruled that the National Marine Fisheries Service violated two major laws in granting an oil-and-gas exploration permit for Cook Inlet near Anchorage, home to a population of only 300 extraordinary belugas.

The judge said the Fisheries Service had acted irrationally when it issued a permit that drastically underestimated the number of belugas that would be harmed by the oil company's activities. In fact about twice as many beluga whales as estimated may have been subject to the dangerous seismic testing, which included airgun noise loud enough to mask whale calls over thousands of miles, impair their communication and breeding, and at close range cause hearing loss.

Last year the Center and allies legally challenged the oil permit. We also won these whales' federal protection back in 2008, as well as 3,000 square miles of protected habitat for them in 2011. "Cook Inlet is rapidly losing its belugas, and these beautiful animals are irreplaceable," said our Alaska Director Rebecca Noblin. "This decision is a step in the right direction toward protecting our local belugas so that our children and grandchildren can enjoy them."

Dumb as Rocks: National Republican Committee in a Tizzy Over Keystone Pipeline Video

The Center for Biological Diversity today posted www.DumbAsRocks.org responding to the National Republican Congressional Committee's Keystone pipeline meltdown. Displaying a weak sense of humor and an even weaker grasp of science, the NRCC has attacked this great video by Congressman Raúl Grijalva explaining how dangerous tar-sands oil is and asking President Obama to reject the Keystone XL tar-sands pipeline.

With help from Kid Rock, Monty Python and exclusive hidden-camera pictures of NRCC scientists, www.DumbAsRocks.org shows how Grijalva blinded the NRCC with high school science.

Check it out. Pass it on. And don't forget to sign the Pledge to Stop the Keystone Pipeline.

It's a mess isn't it?

Then there's the Bilderburg rumor about a BP/Shell merger.

Like that hasn't been in the works for a while now.

Gotta keep up with the Exxon/Mobil's, ya know.

They got lawyers out the ying yang.

Gotta make the monopoly stronger - the bastards.
