Johnson County, KS Cap And Tax Protest

With less than 24 hours notice, and temps in the triple digits, a sizable crowd of KC area citizens showed up in front of the Johnson County Courthouse in Olathe, KS, Sat. afternoon (June 27) to protest the God-awful cap and trade bill passed by the House, yesterday.

Here are some  pix, with commentary, as always:

*This is good…Via The Hill:

Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) had a few choice words about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) landmark climate-change bill after its passage Friday.

When asked why he read portions of the cap-and-trade bill on the floor Friday night, Boehner told The Hill, “Hey, people deserve to know what’s in this pile of s–t.”

As Dr. Zero said in the Greenroom:

Recite the names every chance you get, and if you live in one of their districts, never miss an opportunity to remind your fellow voters what they have done. Let them know their representative voted to steal four thousand dollars from their family, as tribute to the weird state religion of radical environmentalism. Spread the anger at foolish politicians who vote on poisonous trillion-dollar bills without reading them, much less their last-minute 300-page amendments.

Love to know what they got for their betrayals.

On a lighter note, the last tweet, last night, from Newt Gingrich’s American Solutions was:

Thanks for making calls today! Together, we made it much closer than Pelosi expected. The #energytax won’t make it thru the Senate.

Let’s pray that it doesn’t so we are not reduced to an America that looks like this.
