If you live in the USA, you need to call and email your representative today, right now, to vote against this huge tax increase on every household regardless of income.

The price of everything will go up.

A lot!!!!

Please help save our country from our goverment.

Thanks,

RJay

Well,

I wish more people were interested.

At 3:00 AM yesterday morning, House Democrats added a 300 page Addendum of new taxes and regulations to the bill with only hours till the vote.

A majority of legislators voted for it without knowing what was in it.

Its just a political game to them. But its our lives they are playing with.

God help us all,

RJay

I'm intensely interested... I write many letters and make many phone calls to my representatives...
however I disagree with you... remember Love Canal, G.E. and the Hudson River, the Cleveland River catching fire, the James River being so polluted people would get sick from eating the fish? Do you remember than McCain was in favor of cap and trade? this isn't a D vs R issue.. this is an issue of "are we as a society going to be so greedy and shortsighted that we are going to leave an environmental disaster to future generations"... Corporations must have an incentive to control the harm they do and "cap and trade" is the beginning of that.

The reason I didn't respond before is that my experience is that the majority of traders are highly tilted toward views and values that I don't share and I'm more interested in the way we support one another in trading activities than in fighting over values and views in society at large.

The Biggest tax increase in US history deserves debate.

Thank you for your viewpoint.

Rolling Stone has an interesting, if one-sided, article on how Goldman Sachs has profited
from market bubbles. Bubble #6 in the article speculates that cap-and-trade would
create a new commodity bubble with carbon credit trading.

Zero Hedge: Goldman Sachs: "Engineering Every Major Market Manipulation Since The Great Depression"

The format is kind of hard to read, click the full screen button at the upper right
