Beckham leaves massive global footprint

Here it comes. Persecution by the Carbon Police is upon us.  First, to "out" the evil doers and humiliate them. Then the fines will start.  Then what? Jail?  It's coming, folks.
 
 
As long as Beckham doesn't come out touting how we should all be more green by unplugging our cell phone chargers when not in use, I have no problem with him doing what he needs to to capitalize on his business efforts.  After all, he is a business.  If the man wants 15 cars that's his business.
 
MAN-MADE GLOBAL WARMING IS A HOAX PERPETRATED BY GOVERNMENT ENTITIES AND SELF-SERVING OPPORTUNISTS (like Al Gore). 
We CANNOT CHANGE THE CLIMATE OF THE PLANET
 
 
Can we pollute less?  Sure.  There are always new technologies and improvements in reducing pollution.  But don't confuse pollution with Global climate change.

Beckham leaves massive global 'footprint'

David Beckham is already the world's richest footballer.

He may also be its biggest environmental threat.

According to Soccer America daily, with reference to data provided by the British environmental group Carbon Trust, the Los Angeles Galaxy superstar is responsible for 163 tons of carbon dioxide yearly — compare that to the normal 9.4 tons the average Englishman produces.

Beckham's Carbon Footprint — a measure of the impact human activities have on the environment in terms of the amount of green house gases produced, measured in units of carbon dioxide — may be the largest in human history.

No, Beckham isn't breathing any more or less than anyone else, but his extensive air travel for matches and endorsement obligations, along with his fleet of cars and homes, has provided the statistics for Carbon Trust.

The former England captain logged over 250,000 miles last year as he flew back and forth between the U.S. and Europe for England's European Championship qualifiers, while also participating in a Galaxy tour of Oceania in the latter part of the year.

Beckham and his wife Victoria also collected over 50,000 frequent flyer miles for advertising obligations around the globe.

Collectively, Beckham flew farther in 2007 than a trip from the earth to the moon.

At home, Beckham owns a fleet of 15 cars, including a Porsche, a Hummer and a Lincoln Navigator.

"He should use his celebrity status to make people aware of the damage that traveling can cause to the planet," a Carbon Trust spokesman said, according to the report. "With all his money he should be using it at least to reduce his own footprint. He has more freedom of choice when it comes to methods of traveling. He could also choose greener cars."

Peter Cranie, a spokesman of England's Green Party said, "A celeb like Becks, who claims the need to travel on such a massive scale, should be making an effort to counteract the damage he is doing."

Beckham will most likely continue his torrid pace in 2008 as the Galaxy will take part in a number of international competitions and the England star is still looking to earn his 100th cap for his homeland when England takes on Switzerland in a February friendly.

Rush: Why We Can't Accept the Premise of the Liberal Global Warming Hoax and Learn to Love Senator McCain

Rush: Stunning '93 HillaryCare Memos

There is no doubt that Hillary Clinton is a Control Freak. MUCH more than her hubby was.  Things will all be fine if everyone will just do it HER WAY.  That's the stuff of fascists like Hugo Chavez, probably one of Hillary's heros.
 
Her ideology is pure socialism. "I'll take care of you (because you're just a bunch of simpletons who need a caretaker), and I'll do it by controlling everything. "Big Oil, Big Business, Wall Street, Health Care will all come under my power. Then, you'll see, it will all run smoothly and you'll be happy ever after."
 
What puzzles me most is the loud noises the Left has made about 'Bush's PATRIOT Act taking away our freedoms', when it is socialism and more government control that will take away our freedom.
 
Please take a minute to read a short transcript of Rush Limbaugh's show from last Friday.  He's reading news you won't find in the mainstream media because they're all in the tank for Hillary. 
 
This is from 1993 when Hillary tried to nationalize the health care industry and put it entirely under government control.  Bill just let her run with it and look how that turned out.  Total fiasco.
 
God help us all if she gets even more power.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT
RUSH: Now, Judicial Watch. I mentioned this in the previous hour.  They are the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, and they released, I think it was yesterday, records obtained from the Clinton Library and Massage Parlor related to the national task force on Hillary health care reform, a cabinet-level task force chaired by Mrs. Clinton during the administration.  Specifically, those documents came from the White House health care interdepartmental working group.  Here are the highlights of the documents released by Judicial Watch.  Listen to this.  "A June 18, 1993 internal memorandum entitled, 'A Critique of Our Plan,' authored by someone with the initials 'P.S.,' makes the startling admission that critics of Hillary's health care reform plan were correct."  Now, this is somebody in the White House who has analyzed Hillary's plan and is offering a critique of it.  "I can think of parallels in wartime, but I have trouble coming up with a precedent in our peacetime history for such broad and centralized control over a sector of the economy. ... Is the public really ready for this? ... none of us knows whether we can make it work well or at all..."  This is somebody in the administration, a task force designed to analyze their own plan.
 
Here's the next thing: "A 'Confidential' May 26, 1993 Memorandum from Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) to Hillary Clinton entitled, 'Health Care Reform Communications,' which criticizes the Task Force" -- Now, the task force is the group that said, "This is too big."  So Rockefeller, knowing of the memo in the White House, criticizes the task force "as a 'secret cabal of Washington policy "wonks"' that has engaged in 'choking off information' from the public regarding health care reform.  The memorandum suggests that Hillary Clinton 'use classic opposition research' to attack those who were excluded by the Clinton Administration from Task Force deliberations and to 'expose lifestyles, tactics and motives of lobbyists' in order to deflect criticism.  Senator Rockefeller also suggested news organizations 'are anxious and willing to receive guidance [from the Clinton Administration] on how to time and shape their [news] coverage,'" of the Hillary health care reform plan. 

Now, Rockefeller sends this memo to Hillary saying, "Here's how we're going to deal with the people trying to stop you. We're going to expose their lifestyles with opposition research. We're going to expose their tactics and their motives of lobbyists and so forth."  This is a double-dip.  It's bad enough that somebody in the White House suggested, "This plan is so big, I've never seen anything like this even in wartime.  I don't know that we could do it, I don't know if the American people want this."  There are people in the administration that were upset about this.  This is massive!  Rockefeller was trying to shut them up.  He was going even one better, "All right, you don't like it, we're going to go after you, too."  
Then there is "A February 5, 1993 Draft Memorandum from Alexis Herman and Mike Lux detailing the Office of Public Liaison's plan for the health care reform campaign.  The memorandum notes the development of an 'interest group data base' detailing whether or not organizations 'support(ed) us in the election.'  The database would also track personal information about interest group leaders, such as their home phone numbers, addresses, 'biographies, analysis of credibility in the media, and known relationships with Congresspeople.'"  What we are treated to -- and these are White House documents, by the way, that somehow Judicial Watch got, the Clinton Library and Massage Parlor -- what we are discovering is what many of us have long known, slash, suspected that the Clinton, Inc., war room has no boundaries whatsoever and that they will use the full force and the power of the federal government against individuals who are not supporting what they want to do.  They'll do it by exposing lifestyles, threatening to do this, threatening to ruin them, harass them, find their phone numbers, their addresses, get their biographies.  Think 700 FBI files.  

Now, "These records released by Judicial Watch were obtained from the approximately 13,000 records made publicly available by the Clinton Library.  The National Archives admits there may be an additional 3,022,030 textual records, 2,884 pages of electronic records, 1,021 photographs, 3 videotapes and 3 audiotapes related to the Task Force that are being withheld indefinitely from the public.  On November 2, 2007 Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit with the US District Court for the District of Columbia against the National Archives to force the release of all the Task Force records. 'These documents paint a disturbing picture of how Hillary Clinton and the Clinton administration approached health care reform -- secrecy, smears, and the misuse of government computers to track private and political information on citizens,' said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.  'There are millions more documents that the Library has yet to release.  The Clintons continue to play games and pretend they have nothing to do with this delay.  The Clintons should get out of the way and authorize the release of these records now.'"  There's no way, and this is exactly why.  

Now, to me, none of this surprises me.  The detail is stunning, to have Rockefeller involved here.  I guess that shouldn't surprise me, based on his attempts to sabotage victory in the Iraq war by trying to destroy the intelligence efforts with another famous memo of his.  Look, Dingy Harry with this smear letter of me was much the same thing.  Of course, that was not opposition research.  That was just an attempt to intimidate my syndication partner into getting me to shut up.  So the fact is that this is who Democrats are, this is what liberals do, and this has been one of the central themes of this program as I have spoken to you, the members of the tribe, for going on now 20 years to try to get you to understand who these people are.  It's much easier to watch Hillary Clinton in a debate or Bill Clinton lose his cool at a campaign event or an interview knowing full well what they've got in mind, as Mrs. Clinton tries to portray herself as just a harmless little person, a woman who wants the best for the children, who wants the best for the country, power mad. We keep hearing about bipartisanship and getting rid of the divides that exist in this country. The Clintons don't care if there are divides. Whoever gets in their way will be destroyed, one way or the other.  That's the game plan.  It's been part of the playbook.  It always has been.  These documents at Judicial Watch just happen to give irrefutable evidence of it.
