Almost all people assume that computers are being made in China because of the low labor rates manufacturers have to pay. This may be a valid point, but is not the whole reason.

Back during the days of the cold war, our Congress made laws to protect secrets of the Country such as high technology items like electronic calculators and computers from being sold outside of the country in an effort to keep our “enemies” from getting the technology and using that technology against us. While this was well-intentioned, it did not work. In an effort to get around the law, manufacturers simply moved manufacturing to Asia (read China here) so that no laws would be broken. The think tanks that created all of these neat gadgets we use on a daily basis is right here in the USA while they are made in China, who really doesn’t care who has the technology. Heck, they are even using it against us now in guidance systems for their nuclear missiles and such.. the very thing that we thought they would do.

One other reason these manufacturers moved out of the USA was to deal with the constant litigation of environmentalists, who claimed the soldering process was causing environmental problems and cancer in the workers. Soldering uses a mixture of tin and lead to weld the tiny circuits of the electronic boards used in most of the electronic gadgets we have today. China really doesn’t care about environmental issues, nor do they give a hoot about workers with cancer, if either of these were real issues in the first place.

You can bet that Asia will be the electronics manufacturing capital of the world for the foreseeable future. These jobs have gone forever and will not return. As long as we have the mentality that the environmentalists are always right and we allow them to litigate companies to death, you can bet that this steady stream of jobs moving out of the USA will continue.  I don’t think that today they are actually moving, they are just plainly created in China and time and money is not wasted by even taking the chance to build here in the USA.

Today brings another new post about Democratic fundraisers at $25,000 per ticket being brought on by none other than a guy who benefitted by the millions for his Missouri wind power farm. His company got a 107 Million dollar tax credit (can we say LOOPHOLE FOR THE RICH?)  We stand by and let this happen and for some reason this does not ring any bells  nor do any of the democrats cry out loud about corruption in government. More of our stimulus money being wasted for GREEN companies.  You can read the full story here

I wonder when we are going to finally admit that Environmentalism is a religion and treat it as such?

This week brings on a competition of college engineering students to try to make a house that is self-sufficient and completely energy grid free. GREAT idea! The problem is that our Federal government has given each team $100,000 for their efforts, and each team is reporting that their project cost over $500k but if we would just mass produce them, the price would probably drop to $300k. Nice… for a one room house. Can we say useless boys and girls? You can read this full story here

There are some Democratic congressmen throwing a party in South Carolina, if anybody is interested in joining in.  I guess they are celebrating all the millions of dollars that have been paid out to DEAD PEOPLE?? Maybe the DEAD PEOPLE ARE STILL VOTING?

 

Today I began doing some more digging into where the money comes from for these environmental groups that are causing so much grief for the rest of us. When I say grief, I mean these laws, regulations, and law suits that seem to be around every corner of life these days.

More and more, I am finding that the Federal Government is the source for BILLIONS of these dollars that are spent each year, in the way of grants. If you haven’t ever gone there to take a look, please spend some time and go to http://grants.gov  and have a look around at all the money that our Federal Government is trying to give away. When you hear about stories where drunk monkey masturbation techniques are being studied under a grant from the Feds, this is where it all happens. There is enough money up for grabs at the moment to put most of the nation’s unemployed back to work,  at least temporarily. Billions!

Use the search word of “Environment” to begin with and when you are overwhelmed with page after page of grants available, then try adding to that word for a more precise picture on how much our government gives away each day. What may also surprise you is to see money being given away for other projects in Peru, Africa, and Kazakstan. Why are we giving away billions of our tax dollars for these projects?

Greenpeace, in it’s own web site,  says it has 2.9 million people who gave funds last year. This is just one of many Environmental organizations who is based outside of our country (Greenpeace is based in Amsterdam), but they are causing regulations and laws as well as law suits here in the USA with reckless abandon for the National Economy and our way of life. Here is a link to their financials. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is always interesting to figure out where the support and money comes from for projects and organizations that affect our daily lives. Lately, I have found out about the EIA (Environmental Investigation Agency) and it’s cronies who are hell bent on forcing their views of global trade on us and using obscure laws and rules from all over the world to impact each of our lives, whether we realize it or not. Recently, the Gibson Guitar company, located in Tennessee, has come under fire from the Lacey Act and the Fish and Wildlife Commission. After some investigation on my own, I am starting to see where  the FWC has been “used” by this group of Environmentalists from the EIA.

First of all, here are the “Partners” of the EIA, who apparently operate on a very limited budget, but have contacts and friends within the US Federal Government. Those “friends” within the government will come later, but for now here is a list of the “friends” of EIA:

• American Forest & Paper Association• Amazon Watch • Center for international Environmental Law • Conservation international • Defenders of Wildlife • Dogwood Alliance• Environmental investigation Agency• ForestEthics • Friends of the Earth • Global Witness • Greenpeace • Hardwood Federation• international brotherhood • Society of American Foresters of Teamsters• national Wildlife Federation• natural Resources Defense Council• Rainforest Action network • Rainforest Alliance • Sierra Club• SustainableFurnitureCouncil • ThenatureConservancy • TropicalForestTrust • UnitedSteelworkers• WildlifeConservationSociety • World Wildlife Fund

Any time you are giving money to any of these organizations, you are in effect giving money to the EIA and you are almost always guaranteeing that you are promoting Organizations that are doing their best to end manufacturing in America and also throwing money into the pockets of Attorneys that came from taxpayer pockets (re: your pocket!). There is further information on who supports this organization and whhere they get their money at this address: http://www.eia-global.org/lacey/P6.EIA.LaceyReport.pdf

 

Keep in mind these organizations are the kind of  people who really don’t want you mowing your lawn, and when it boils down to it, they would rather that you didn’t even exist since you breathe carbon dioxide and you are the ones that cause global warming every time you breathe or break wind.  I am surprised to see several UNIONS that are supporters of this organization. Bet you didn’t know your union dues were going for this did you?

More recently, the EIA pressured the FWC to seize products from Gibson Guitars, using heavily armed agents to do so. Gibson has been in business for over 100 years here in the USA and employs over 1,200. They import rosewood and ebony from plantations in India, with the blessings of organizations such as Greenpeace and several other watchdogs in an effort to comply with existing laws and regulations. Having this happen after the hoops they jump through is outrageous to say the least. It also has all of the earmarks of being a political move since EVERY guitar manufacturer in the USA buys the same wood from the same dealers and imports it using the same paperwork as Gibson. If this is not proven to be a political farce in the end it will be a miracle.

For those that dint know, Gibson’s wood has not been confiscated because it is illegal to import, nor because it is endangered, nor for any other reason except that the EIA thinks it is against an obscure law in INDIA that limits the export of rosewood to products less than 3/16 of an inch if it is “unfinished” wood, which means it will be used to make other products when it gets to the importing country. In this case, that is the USA. Blanks for fingerboards for instruments such as guitars are generally 1/4 of an inch thick, which is 1/16 of an inch thicker than this obscure rule the EIA is claiming Gibson broke. On the other hand, it is completely legal to also ship out woods that are over 3/16 of an inch, but the import/export code is different. This different import code (or paperwork snafu, is why the FWC raided Gibson, and also why the EIA is claiming a victory. As of right now, there has been NO US LAWS BROKEN and because of this no charges have been filed against Gibson or any of it’s agents.  It is my understanding that the government of India is somewhat pissed about this as well, since the sale of the wood has had the blessings of their government all along. Hence, the stalemate and quagmire the Obama administration finds themselves in.

WE MUST STOP LETTING THESE ROGUE ORGANIZATIONS RULE OUR DAIY LIVES !

 

It isn’t easy being green… or is that a line from Kermit the Frog?

 

The truth is, Corruption is another word for Environmentalist. Today we learn of another high ranking Environmentalist that has pleaded guilty to skimming Federal funds (read here “Our Taxes”) in Tennessee.  This really doesn’t surprise me, as most of these Green schemes are just ways to “redistribute the wealth” while making uneducated individuals think they are saving the planet, keeping their children from having lung diseases, or otherwise helping the environment. If one spends just a little bit of time investigating, they will increasingly turn up stories like this one, where there is rampant corruption, or just outright lies in exchange for getting to put their hand into the back pocket of tax payers.

This particular guy worked hard to harass Tennessee’s “TVA” coal fired power plants, doing his best to make them look like the reason the world is ending. Officially, he has pleaded to guilty to money laundering and fraud. When it comes down to it, this group, as are most environmental groups, are just liars who are out to generate regulations that will curb the rest of us into their submission, or are just plain out to get our money.  You can get more info on this story at http://www.knoxnews.com

Have I failed to mention that the Bush Administration has voted against giving this company any money?.. but then I suppose somehow they will find a way to spin this so it sounds like it is all Bush’s fault?

Of course there is going to be negative press when this kind of thing is exposed, but why not just create your own “news” agency, and then get google to recognize it as a legitimate news agency?

We still haven’t heard the latest news on Solyndra, but everything looks like it is pointing to a HUGE corruption plot by they Obama Administration. I ma wondering if it is proved that Obama is guilty of fraud and corruption, if it will ever come out into the sunlight since the investigation is being conducted by none other than Holder’s FBI. It is really bad when you get to the point that you cant even believe ANY of your government, but I am at that point. After the Gibson Guitar fiasco, I am finding anything that our administration has to say is most likely a lie and I look for the treal truth to be somewhere 180 degrees of what they are telling us.

Let’s not forget to hear the official words from OZONE AL, where he claims that going green will create jobs. You can catch his latest words here

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a response to a post on one of the Environmental blog sites, this time by the EIA, trying to explain away the recent raid on Gibson Guitars. Their claim starts out sounding like they really have “the goods” on Gibson, and then they get caught up in their own rhetoric to the point that they make no point. I should have suspected that the EIA was behind this move in the first place.

Anyway, here is my response that I posted on their site in response to this link: http://news.mongabay.com/2011/0902-eia_statement_gibson.html

 

Keep in mind here that the EIA is in no way affiliated with the Federal Government. They are an Environmental group, 
much like Greenpeace and their ILK, that travels the world in search of ways to stop people from cutting down trees. 
These people are the true "Tree Huggers" of the world whose agenda far outreaches the US Government's already outrageous 
agenda on Environmental issues.

What I fail to see is how (or why) our government is putting so much emphasis into a group of individuals with such a 
wild agenda that they would shut down an American Icon of a company and confiscate their supplies and products with this 
flimsy of a reason. The fact that the raid was committed by the Fish and Wildlife Service is another strange turn of events.

Let's for a minute here play devil's advocate and say that Gibson was, in fact,  "Smuggling" woods that were illegal on the 
International Market. Would it not make sense that there would be a paper trail that would be evidence enough to prove the 
case and the confiscation of the wood not even necessary? What does the US Government plan to do with the wood?? 
Destroy it?  Yeah, that makes sense...

This whole thing is nothing more than the Obama Administration being controlled by Environmental extremists groups , Union 
thugs, Muslim Brotherhood,  and armed federal agencies with an agenda that is not in line with the will of the American 
People.

Hopefully this will get corrected in the next election and when it does there will be law suits filed and won against
these extremist groups that have destroyed America.

This article from the financial times magazine is a press release from CERN on global warming and it’s cause. Keep in mind that CERN is the organization that AlGore and his cronies harped about so often as the supreme guru’s of global warming (or Climate Change or what ever the current words to describe it is). It appears that after lengthy research they have discovered that solar radiation and solar events change the earth more than man could ever hope to do. It is sad that even with mounting evidence debunking the global warming screamers, they still refuse to admit they were wrong. Wonder if it is because they have so heavily invested their money into carbon schemes?

Here is the full story.
