A Modest Energy Solution

Scott Ott (aka Scrappleface) "reports:"

The global warming bill, up for debate in the Senate this week, includes a little-known provision to reduce the nation’s collective carbon footprint, and to make the U.S. energy-independent by replacing the burning of petroleum products with the burning of paper currency.

Under the terms of the legislation, Congress would require that businesses and individuals burn money to run factories, heat homes and propel motor vehicles.

“Money is a relatively clean-burning, renewable resource,” said Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-CA. “If we need more, we don’t have to go crawling to the Saudis, we simply mandate that our own people send it to us.”

Silly. But not too awful far from the truth if we end up with a Radical Liberal in the White House too along with the Radical Libs already running Congress.

"running" congress is a loose phrase, dear mister r. I haven't see them running anything resembling congress in the last year and a half. Based upon approval ratings worse than old W's, I think the public agrees.

Seriously, we're hitting an energy crisis that would have been better set for a science-fiction novel. This is pathetic. get your shovels, folks, we're going to ANWR
