Default A License is Required for your HOUSE!!

I received this as an email and submit it as such.

As some have learned from reading various iterations of the "health care" bull@#$%, er, "bill", it might behoove us to take a close look at "cap & trade", an even more enormous swindle.

To wit...

...provisions of the Cap and Trade Bill that has passed the House of Representatives and being considered by the Senate.

A License required for your house....no longer just for cars and mobile homes....

Thinking about selling your house - A look at H.R. 2454 (Cap and trade bill) This is unbelievable!

Home owners take note & tell your friends and relatives who are home owners!

Beginning 1 year after enactment of the Cap and Trade Act, you won't be able to sell your home unless you retrofit it to comply with the energy and water efficiency standards of this Act. H.R. 2454, the "Cap & Trade" bill passed by the House of Representatives, if also passed by the Senate, will be the largest tax increase any of us has ever experienced. The Congressional Budget Office (supposedly non-partisan) estimates that in just a few years the average cost to every family of four will be $6,800 per year. No one is excluded. However, once the lower classes feel the pinch in their wallets, you can be sure these voters get a tax refund (even if they pay no taxes at all) to offset this new cost. Thus, you Mr. and Mrs. Middle Class America will have to pay even more since additional tax dollars will be needed to bail out everyone else.

But wait. This awful bill (that no one in Congress has actually read) has many more surprises in it. Probably the worst one is this: A year from now you won't be able to sell your house. Yes, you read that right. The caveat is (there always is a caveat) that if you have enough money to make required major upgrades to your home, then you can sell it. But, if not, then forget it. Even pre-fabricated homes ("mobile homes") are included. In effect, this bill prevents you from selling your home without the permission of the EPA administrator. To get this permission, you will have to have the energy efficiency of your home measured. Then the government will tell you what your new energy efficiency requirement is and you will be forced to make modifications to your home under the retrofit provisions of this Act to comply with the new energy and water efficiency requirements. Then you will have to get your home measured again and get a license (called a "label" in the Act) that must be posted on your property to show what your efficiency rating is; sort of like the Energy Star efficiency rating label on your refrigerator or air conditioner. If you don't get a high enough rating, you can't sell. And, the EPA administrator is authorized to raise the standards every year, even above the automatic energy efficiency increases built into the Act. The EPA administrator, appointed by the President, will run the Cap & Trade program (AKA the "American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009") and is authorized to make any future changes to the regulations and standards he alone determines to be in the government's best interest. Requirements are set low initially so the bill will pass Congress; then the Administrator can set much tougher new standards every year.

The Act itself contains annual required increases in energy efficiency for private and commercial residences and buildings. However, the EPA administrator can set higher standards at any time. Sect. 202 Building Retrofit Program mandates a national retrofit program to increase the energy efficiency of all existing homes across America . Beginning 1 year after enactment of the Act, you won't be able to sell your home unless you retrofit it to comply with the energy and water efficiency standards of this Act. You had better sell soon, because the standards will be raised each year and will be really hard (i.e., expensive) to meet in a few years. Oh, goody! The Act allows the government to give you a grant of several thousand dollars to comply with the retrofit program requirements IF you meet certain energy efficiency levels. But, wait, the State can set additional requirements on who qualifies to receive the grants. You should expect requirements such as "can't have an income of more than $50K per year", "home selling price can't be more than $125K", or anything else to target the upper middle class (and that's YOU) and prevent them from qualifying for the grants. Most of us won't get a dime and will have to pay the entire cost of the retrofit out of our own pockets. Sect. 204 Building Energy Performance Labeling Program establishes a labeling program that for each individual residence will identify the achieved energy efficiency performance for "at least 90 percent of the residential market within 5 years after the date of the enactment of this Act."

This means that within 5 years 90% of all residential homes in the U.S. must be measured and labeled. The EPA administrator will get $50M each year to enforce the labeling program. The Secretary of the Department of Energy will get an additional $20M each year to help enforce the labeling program. Some of this money will, of course, be spent on coming up with tougher standards each year..

Oh, the label will be like a license for your car. You will be required to post the label in a conspicuous location in your home and will not be allowed to sell your home without having this label. And, just like your car license, you will probably be required to get a new label every so often - maybe every year. But, the government estimates the cost of measuring the energy efficiency of your home should only cost about $200 each time. Remember what they said about the auto smog inspections when they first started: that in California it would only cost $15. That was when the program started. Now the cost is about $50 for the inspection and certificate; a 333% increase. Expect the same from the home labeling program. Sect. 304 Greater Energy Efficiency in Building Codes establishes new energy efficiency guidelines for the National Building Code and mandates at 304(d) that 1 year after enactment of this Act, all state and local jurisdictions must adopt the National Building Code energy efficiency provisions or must obtain a certification from the federal government that their state and/or local codes have been brought into full compliance with the National Building Code energy efficiency standards.

I just can't take it any more.
The arrogance of these fkkers is just unbelievable.

I assume that everyone is already aware that the Supreme Court declared that carbon dioxide is a pollutant. That's right, folks! Just by BREATHING you are polluting the environment. Perhaps the little fact that carbon dioxide is expelled every time a mammal exhales just happened to slip by the Supreme Court.

Then, to top THAT, the EPA Czar declared that "Greenhouse Gasses" are harmful to HUMANS!
So, we exhale carbon dioxide---the normal biological process (which, incidentally, is BENEFICIAL to plant life--they produce and release oxygen and utilize carbon dioxide...we utilize the oxygen and produce carbon dioxide)---which is NOW a pollutant. In fact, it is DANGEROUS for us to even be around carbon dioxide.

So this fukked up administration is now legislating (again without letting any of those voting read the proposals) how biology should work.


Forget about the FACT that over 11,000 well-respected scientists in this country and across the planet have looked at the ACTUAL data (not the Gore-"facts") and signed a petition declaring that THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS GLOBAL WARMING. In fact, the data shows that the overall temperature of the planet has been lower when carbon dioxide levels rise. The two are NOT related.


Are those of you who voted for him sorry about it yet?
You will be.


It is NO LONGER ABOUT BUSH. It's about Obama's agenda to (not so) slowly but surely change the greatest country on the planet---the Republic for which we stand---into a Socialist Democracy (the Frenchy French). It's happening. And once it's completed, there will be NO TURNING BACK.
The Founding Fathers worked diligently to prevent this very occurrence. They hotly debated the abuse of power, and came up with the first (and Only) document of its kind in the World to protect against it.

The ongoing arrogance of this administration to ignore it just astounds me.

And any of those that want to respond to this with Bu...Bu..Bu...Bush can just f*ck off.
Bush had his issues. But this jerk-off goes WAY beyond that. And if you can't see that you're...well...you will.
You're getting what you asked for. Change we can count on (being the permanent and final destruction of this great country---history has proven time and again that all great empires come to an end. This empire is ending; far, far sooner than I thought it would).

It's all about control. How the government can control YOU.

Unfortunately the sheeples are dragging us with them. Hope, change that you can tax.

Snopes is bull@#$%. I won't dignify it any further.

What? Did you even read it? Or is the National Association of Realtors marxist bastards too?

Why do people choose to ignore facts staring them right in the face?
