Air Travelers may pay their way in carbon fees

The insanity continues to grow…what warped “nature-Nazi” would, voluntarily, walk up to a kiosk and put in their credit card?  What a con! Here’s the story:

Environmentally conscious travelers flying out of San Francisco International Airport will soon be able to assuage their guilt and minimize the impact of their air travel by buying certified carbon offsets at airport kiosks. – to offer fliers the opportunity to purchase carbon offsets.

Here the idea:

…a traveler would approach a kiosk resembling the self-service check-in stations used by airlines, then punch in his or her destination. The computer would calculate the carbon footprint and the cost of an investment to offset the damage. The traveler could then swipe a credit card to help save the planet. Travelers would receive a printed receipt listing the projects benefiting from their environmental largesse.

Who benefits?  San Fran’s Carbon Fund!   Disgusted yet?  But it’s voluntary, so who cares!    WRONG!    They will quickly realize that there are not enough stupid, cock-eyed, nature freaks to raise enough money, therefore, you can count on this being a new mandate under the new Obama administration!

We had a blast talking about this on our show: click here to listen!


Ten Tax-Hike Threats in the 111th Congress

Ten?  Only ten?    I hope so, but I fear there will be many more!  National Taxpayers Union put together their list of the top ten that will mostly like be implemented in the first part of 2009.

  1. Repeal/Expiration of the 2001 and 2003 Tax Cuts
  2. Payroll Tax Increases
  3. Smaller Alternative Minimum Tax Patches
  4. Imposition of “Windfall Profits” Energy Taxes
  5. Modification of Health Care Tax Treatment
  6. Increase in the Federal Excise Tax on Cigarettes
  7. Increase in the Federal Excise Tax on Gasoline
  8. Approval of the Streamlined Sales Tax Project
  9. Repeal of Tax Protections for Retirement Savings
  10. Attack on Earnings Deferral and International Tax Competition

We talked about it here on our show!  If all this hits, and I am pretty sure it will, you haven’t seen a slow economy!

Taxing our way to prosperity!  Thanks Obama voters!

No women representation in VA

When the new Congress convenes early next month, Virginia’s 11-member House delegation will be without a woman for the first time since 2000.

And why should I care?  No,  really, what is the big deal?  Are you saying men can’t represent all people?  

Leslie Byrne, a Democrat, says “This is a step backwards for Virignia!”   Step backwards?  How?  The people voted and they voted for the huge liberal, Glenn Nye, over the Republican Thelma Drake! Ask them if they feel it is a step back!  Of course, it is a step back from our Founding Father Principles because Nye is a socialists, not because he happens to be a man!!!

“Regardless of the party, women ought to have more representation.” Leslie Bryne

Apparently, according to Byrne, we should vote for women no matter what their position.  They could be….say…ugly, fat, and a liberal..and no one should care?  I CARE!

“It’s time for the men to come forward and take an interest in identifying women candidates,” she said  Hey, if women want to run, they don’t need my help!  It could be…just maybe…that women don’t like politics!  is that okay?

Typical liberalism, style and fashion over substance!

Reminds me of the show we did on “gentlewomen”: click here!

Navy, environmentalists settle sonar lawsuit

Loony, tree hugger leftist wanted the Navy to stop training exercises because it “might” be hurting whales and other marine life.

The complaint sought a court order to curb mid-frequency sonar, the Navy’s preferred method for detecting enemy submarines, on the grounds the sonar disturbs and sometimes kills whales and dolphins.

Cry me a river! Let me see…..Whales?…or the best Navy in the world to protect America?   It is a tough one!    BESIDES….there is little evidence that sonar has any impact on any ocean life!  Yet…

Environmentalists argue that mid-frequency active sonar can disrupt whale feeding patterns, and in the most extreme cases can kill whales by causing them to beach themselves. But scientists aren’t sure why sonar affects some species more than others. They also don’t fully know how it hurts whales!

These idiots actually won some cases and distracted our military from doing their job!  Yet, common sense prevailed…

But last month, in a ruling on a NRDC lawsuit challenging the Navy’s sonar training exercises off Southern California, the Supreme Court ruled that military training trumps protecting whales.  Chief Justice Roberts wrote forcing the Navy to deploy an inadequately trained anti-submarine fleet would jeopardize the safety of the fleet. He also wrote it was unclear how many marine mammals the Navy’s sonar exercises might harm.

We discussed this case in July while filling for Doc on WRVA.  Click here to listen.  This people are a gift to talk radio!

I say the military vows to protect every American EXCEPT anyone who is an environmentalist freak!

Christmas Wishes From Home for our Troops

Thanks to all for participating in wishing our troops a Merry Christmas.

We have posted the entire show under our Patriot Radio link at our site: or click here. 

We couldn’t get to all the emails so we have posted them here.

Godspeed to the greatest fighting force in the world!

Proud father of Joshua Carbone

Dear Lee Brothers,

I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a special heart felt thank you to those who served for the freedoms of our wonderful nation. Since my son Joshua left for Iraq, I have a better appreciation of what that service requires. Many before him made the ultimate sacrifice and prepared a safer course for my son and our country. How do you thank a father, mother, wife, husband, son or daughter for such a sacrifice? As a father of a child in a hostile location, I fight the demons everyday but I trust in God for his purpose and protection. As the holidays loom closer, I will surely miss him more, if that is possible. Nevertheless, a plate will be set at the table and gifts under the tree as a reminder for all who are absent from their families.

Your my favorite fill-ins

I’d like to thank some of my personal Heroes

Lt. Colonel Mark Schmidt, U.S. Air Force, F16 Pilot

Lt. Jonathon Schmidt, U.S. Air Force, T38 Pilot

Ryan Schmidt, Cadet VMI 2011

Heather Schmidt, Color Corporal, VMI Cadet 2010

Zack Youngsma, Regimental Commander, VMI 2008 

Also, All of our brave Men and Women serving this great country

Merry Christmas!
Wade Schmidt

My daughter, Jennifer is in Iraq.  She’s a navigator for prowlers in the Marines.  I want to wish her squadron (The Banshees) and all our troops a very Merry Christmas and a New year filled with hope and a swift reunion with their loved ones.
We love you Jennifer!
Thank you and Merry Christmas

I was driving home and heard Bill Janis extend his Christmas greetings to his Brother Rats serving our great nation. First of all, thanks for making me almost wreck the car from the misting of the eyes!  Glad I didn’t have my cell phone or it could have been real trouble!

 My brother,… Lt. Col Tom Anthony; …was one of the servicemen he mentioned serving in the Horn of Africa.  I just want to say how much that touched me.  Being Tom’s brother and knowing he wont be home this year for Christmas to see his 3 year old niece and nephew, myself, his sister in law and father, has brought a bit of sadness to my holiday spirit. Your show today has dissolved that inner sadness.
 Thank you for reminding me of what it is to be an American and the importance of what our men and women are doing.  The sacrifice that they give to our nation, is a gift to all of us that I can not describe by any words, but I know that it is felt appreciated by all of us.  I know Bill Janis, and he is one of the most honorable, and decent person that I have ever had the privilege to meet.  I am proud that he is my representative.  Please extend my Christmas wishes to his family as well as your own; and rest assured that Lt Col Tom Anthony will know that he is being thought of with great love and admiration during this holiday season.  Thanks again for all the good that you both do.
God Bless, and Merry Christmas!
The Anthony’s

USA-Patriotism Poem

David Bancroft is a great American and real Patriot.  He sent us  this poem to express his support for the troops during this Christmas Season!  Enjoy…
And my poem, Our Valiant Troops, is the best way to express how fellow patriots and I feel about you.
Our Valiant Troops
So many thoughts and emotions are evoked,
when seeing young men and women,
standing at attention,
showing their loyalty and pride
in salute to Old Glory
that waves triumphantly above
as they listen intently
to our great country’s anthem…
They are daughters, sons,
sisters, brothers, husbands, wives,
other loved ones and very dear friends…
They come from all walks of life and every state.
Even some do so for citizenship sake.
They are our valiant troops…
each performing their role
to keep the USA free,
and doing what it takes
for others in need.
They do so not for greed or political belief,
but to serve, honor, and protect,
knowing that the ultimate price might be paid,
followed by more tears
when solemn taps are played.
They deserve so much for what they do,
including being remembered as a veteran too…
And just imagine how you might make one feel
with a simple thank you for being there for us,
when seeing the uniform being worn.

Kaine thinks his job is to spend

In a quote at the VA Employment Commisssion Workforce One Stop Center last week, Governor Kaine said:

“Let’s be realistic, you don’t run for Governor to make budget cuts.”

Then the very next week, he said this:

“Obviously this isn’t the best year for new huge investments.” “We will find new money for a couple of key initiatives this year!”

No matter what?  Kaine is going to spend money! NO MATTER WHAT..he can’t be stopped!

Truth slips out every now and then.  I would like to see a politicians run on cutting the budget, instead of offering promises of more spending for pet projects (Pre-K!)

There is one hope for that kind of politician in VA – Click here to find out who!

Governor, lets be realistic,you pander to the people through socialists ideas and you and your buddy, Obama, are a threat to a free ran for Governor to spend money!

Kaine is awful, but how about NY Governor

Governor Tax and Spend: Adds 137 Hikes while increase budget to $121 Billion

The Draconian plan calls for:

* An “iTunes tax” of 4 percent on videos, music or pictures downloaded from the Internet.

* A 4 percent tax on taxi, limo and bus rides. That means a $10 cab ride would cost 40 cents more.

* A 4 percent entertainment tax on tickets to movies, concerts and sporting events. That would add nearly 50 cents to a $12 movie ticket or $1.80 to the cheapest $44.50 seat at a Knicks game.

* The tax on beer increases 24 cents per gallon, or more than double the current rate, which means about 30 cents a case.

* An 18 percent tax on nondiet soft drinks, which aims to reduce child obesity. A $1.50 can of Pepsi would then cost at least 25 cents more.

* A 4 percent tax on cable TV and satellite services, raising a $100 bill by $4.

* Hiking the cost of “personal” services – including haircuts, manicures, pedicures, massages and gym memberships – by 4 percent.

* A 4 percent sales tax on clothing and shoes under $500, except for two weeks out of the year.

* Elimination of the law that caps the state sales tax on gasoline at 8 cents per gallon.

CRAP!  This could give Kaine an idea!!

Kaine-Just another Liberal

The Democrats are the party of new ideas!

Kaine’s new idea..ready……… is to raise taxes! 

What?  That’s not new?  Well, it doesn’t matter, it is the only answer for Liberals in every situation: health care problem-raise taxes, global warming scam-raise taxes, economy slow-raise taxes, debt-raise taxes!  Sounds so innovative, doesn’t it!

VA has at least a 3 billion debt problem caused by OVERSPENDING, not because we are under-taxed.  But Kaine, showing why he is just another Liberal, plans on blaming the taxpayer and raising taxes on cigarettes. Of course, Liberals love to use tax policy for social engineering!

In your household, can you go ask your employer for more money when things get tight? Kaine and Government can!

When things get tight, can you spend money on new items (furniture, TVs, cars) with impunity? Kaine and Government can (Pre-K)!

And why cigarettes?  Because he can convince enough dopes that 1) cigarettes are evil. 2) Cigarettes cause more health problems. 3) People who smoke should pay there fair share. 4) Doubling the tax is still lower than other states. 5) Obama was a good choice!

ALL ARE WRONG!  (especially Obama as a good choice!)  What if Kaine (or the big, bad government) decided that hamburgers (or pick your vice; like evil SUV’s or regular light bulbs) where bad for the environment, killed cows, or aren’t healthy, therefore should be taxed?  Would that be acceptable!  Of  course not!  But the dopes of the world line all line up behind Kaine in support of that very principle! 

I told you Kaine would raise taxes!  It must stop!  Stand up and fight against all new ways to tax us! I don’t know what is worse: Democrats stupid ideas or the people that support them! 

But, at least, we are still one of the lowest taxed states on cigarettes. Dare I say: PUKE!

We don’t pay enough taxes!

We don’t have the money for a better, free education, the right to retire, two wars, unemployment, Aids in Africaglobal poverty, and health care for everyone!  Raise taxes, I agree with Obama…..OR we could cut these frick’in programs!!!:

2008: Worst Waste of the Year

Just a few examples:


• $188,000 for Lobster Institute in Maine, home of the “LobsterCam”
• $1 million for bike paths on Louisiana levees while levees await basic repairs
• $2.4 million for a retractable shade canopy at a park in West Virginia
• $24.6 million for the National Park Service’s 100th year birthday in 2016 – 8 years early
• $3.2 million on a blimp the Pentagon does not want
• $367,000 wasted by a Texas school board on items like an inflatable alligator and under-the-sea waterslide, among other things
• $5 million for a bridge to a zoo parking lot in St. Louis
• $9,000 for a non-functioning airplane-shaped gas station in Tennessee
• $300,000 for specialty potatoes for high-end restaurants

I am sure that Obama will stop this madness: Hope and Change, yes, we can!



Next VA Governor

In the tradition of “Messiah” Obama,…..I bring you tidings of great joy……….Bob McDonnell!

This is a breath of fresh air. In the following clip from AP Day,  McDonnell said that he will appeal to everyone, all people, through…pandering? NO.  Though…promises? NO.  Through FREEDOM! And Freedom appeals to all!  Listen to us talk about it: here and here!

This guy is a mini-Reagan!  Listen to how he lays out the three “cancers” to businesses!  This is a politician that gets it…..

Obama should shut down Gitmo

Shocked by my statement?  You won’t be when you learn what really happens down in Guantanamo.  You will agree with me…shut it down now!

As we documented with this interview with Richard Miniter, Gitmo is a joke!  It is a huge political correct experiment run by the radical left!  If you haven’t heard Miniter, it is well worth the time. It is a must listen!

Now, Coulter reminds us in her recent article, Terrorists’ Restless Leg Syndrome, that $75,000 bought a terrorist a artificial leg so that can go back to the battle field and cause more havoc!

After being captured fighting with Taliban forces against Americans in 2001, Abdullah Massoud was sent to Guantanamo, where the one-legged terrorist was fitted with a special prosthetic leg, at a cost of $50,000-$75,000 to the U.S. taxpayer. Under the Americans With Disabilities Act, Massoud would now be able to park his car bomb in a handicapped parking space!

Americans for Disabilities Act?  Barf bucket anyone!!

Upon his release in March 2004, Massoud hippity-hopped back to Afghanistan and quickly resumed his war against the U.S. Aided by his new artificial leg, just months later, in October 2004, Massoud masterminded the kidnapping of two Chinese engineers in Pakistan working on the Gomal Zam Dam project.

Where is the press?  In none of the news accounts I read of Massoud’s return to jihad after his release from Guantanamo is there any mention of the fact that his prosthetic leg was acquired in Guantanamo, courtesy of American taxpayers after he was captured trying to kill Americans on the battlefield in Afghanistan.

News about the prosthetic leg might interfere with stories of the innocent aid workers being held captive at Guantanamo in George Bush’s AmeriKKKa.

Close Gitmo now!
