Cap & Trade Fails Mainly in Spain, Sotomayor Fails Mainly in the Supreme Court

The United States is on the verge of passing the massive Cap & Trade boondoggle, and it’s a bad idea. But don’t just take my word for it. Let’s look at someplace where’s it’s already been implemented:

Proponents of the bill need to look no further than Spain, where the cap-and trade concept has sent unemployment to the 20 percent mark and with every one “green job” created, they have lost 2.2 jobs. Not exactly a success story.

Here’s more on Spain’s Cap & Trade debacle:

The release also says that 9 out of 10 “green jobs” created in Spain over the last decade are now gone. What’s more, Spain spent $753,778 to create each job, including subsidies of $1,319,783 per wind industry job.

That these numbers probably seem sustainable to U.S. government calculators is frightening indeed.

They call them “green jobs” because the government gets all your green, and your job is sleeping on a pile of discarded lettuce in a dumpster behind a Korean restaurant.

In other newsthanks to the Supreme Court, a probable future SCOTUS Justice, Sonia Sotomayor, has now been officially overturned more times than Michelle Obama’s garden soil. The good news for Sotomayor is that once she’s on the Supreme Court, she won’t be overturned by the Supreme Court anymore.
