Your carbons and your life: a look at the death dealers for a better tomorrow
By Paul A. Ibbetson

Your money or your life! These are the words most people have seen on television, and a precious few in real life, where the villain gives the frightened passer-by the option of handing over their hard earned money or forfeiting their precious life. Ah, for the good old days. For a bad case scenario, the classic robber/victim interaction was a pretty good deal. Think about it, the thug/villain/bad guy (whatever title or representation identified this dastardly person), was usually apparent by the robber's covered face, grizzled appearance, or whatever makes a bad guy look most noticeably bad. The options (your money or your life), while not fair, were straight forward; and for a bad situation, "living" was clearly the best decision of the choices available. However, when it comes to the man-made global warming crowd, currently in power in the United States, the old 'your money or your life' routine now has a radically new spin. In fact, it's truly a theft you're not meant to walk away from.

The man-made global warming policies of the Barack Obama administration, such as Cap and Trade, are starting to receive sharper scrutiny as more focus is being placed on the tremendous cost of implementing Obama's quest for a carbon reduced, "better tomorrow." The fact that the U.S. will spend trillions of dollars, cripple our economic standing in the world, and reduce many important personal freedoms of citizens here in the U.S., chasing a Gorian Hoax, is starting to get traction with the American people, much to the chagrin of the Obama Administration. This is a positive thing; however, most people that combat the cabal of climate cuckoos focus their attention on the 'theft' argument behind man-made global warming. That is, the criminal way our taxes will be raised (and our pockets emptied), or the robber's demand that we turn over our personal choice on what to buy and how to travel (you know, those personal freedoms). This challenge to the American people alone is worth fighting for, as this is the fleecing of the country by the miscreant in the back ally, "packing heat" and demanding, "your money or your life," and it isn't even their complete man-made global warming "rescue" package. To incorporate the complete "green" package of the Obama administration, we have to modify the classic robber's option of 'your money or your life' with the certainty of Obama's new criminal request of 'your carbons and your life.' Yes, we have to add the seldom analyzed element of certain death that is a fundamental component of the "green initiative" policies of the man-made global warming crowd.

While most people are focusing on the economic detriments of Obama's green initiatives, the broadest encompassing life issue of our time stands before us. If the anti-capitalistic, anti-industrial measures of Cap and Trade come to fruition, it will dramatically increase death rates in developing countries that are attempting through industry to pull themselves out of third world status — with its war, poverty, and disease. Yes, for these countries, green initiatives should come packaged with a depiction of the 'skull and crossbones.' There is little spin that can be thrown at the fact that poverty and death walk hand in hand. If you believe in the goodness of life and its right to flourish, then you must observe the overt stance of the Obama administration, that 'too much of a good thing' is ultimately bad.

To understand how death plays an intricate part of the Obama agenda, you have to step into the complex, socialistic, web of the administration. Within this flowing web, we see the devaluing of the individual and the blending of people and environment as one. With this psychology in place, the Obama administration can now find common applicability to monitor and control the environment and the individual as the same issue. Simply put, bellies, babies, and your breath (C02) become the privy of the government, as do cars, construction, and carbon credits. These all become one and the same, and, unfortunately, all in need of radical reduction. John Griffin's observation in the American Thinker that within Obama's healthcare plan is Section 1233 of HR 3200, which mandates "Advance Care Planning Consultation" for the elderly, depicts in an eerie Soylent Green-like fashion (a movie from 1973), the Obama Administration's quick step to walk the elderly to their own funerals, which should be chilling to both young and old. However, this is just the back-end assault by the Obama "death dealers," as HR 3200 would also be the largest abortion expansion since Roe v. Wade and would make abortion on demand a 'federal essential benefit.'

Now that you understand the Obama game plan, meet reflecting images of Barack Obama and the death dealers for a better tomorrow. Obama's top science advisor, John Holdren, advocated in his 1977 book, Ecoscience, mandatory abortions, mass sterilizations by way of the food and water supply, and forced implants to prevent pregnancies. While Health Czar Nancy-Ann Deparle can be viewed as a pro-abortionist, she pales in comparison to the 'abortion queen' of Kansas, Kathleen Sebelius, Obama's Health and Human Services Secretary — with her nefarious ties to the recently departed Dr. George Tiller. Deputy Health Care Director (and pro-abortionist), Jeanne Lambow, can also be placed on the list of "death first" dealers. Each of Obama's many arms (e.g., Czars and Agency heads) work without any morality limitations to the common collective goal. Obama's EPA director, Lisa Jackson, recently admitted the agency had not even read the Waxman-Markey carbon tax bill before issuing a positive report on its economic impacts. The most overtly vile Obama minion to date is that of the global governance guru from 'Socialist International,' now global warming Czar, Carol Browner. For Obama, the death dealer positions never end. Even as you read this sentence a new Czar or Agency head is being conjured up from the bubbling socialist pot.

The point here is not that the Barack Obama Administration won't wreck the economy or bring about a socialist America (under the guise of creating a "better, greener tomorrow"); what is of importance is that while we oppose these 'warm' mongers, we must remember that the young, the old, the poor, the living at all stages have a lot more to lose than their hard earned cash.
