  • Video: Diverse Opinions on Energy?


    Earleir today, Harry Alford, the President of the Black Chamber of Commerce, was invited to speak at a hearing of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee by Senator James Inhofe (R-OK). The hearing focused on the erroneous claims of the left that cap and trade somehow creates jobs. Mr. Alford correctly told the committee that “the number of these new ‘green jobs’ will be lower than the number of the other jobs that [Waxman-Markey] would destroy elsewhere in the economy.” His assumptions were based on a Charles River Associates study his group commissioned. Senator Boxer attempted to marginalize his opinion, demonstrating once again that when the environmental left says they recognize ‘diverse opinions,’ they only mean opinions that match their own.

      I want Harry Alford to run for office of Boxer. Let us replace all the racists in Congress(they are all part of the Democratic Party-party of slavery, segregation and now deniers of equal opportunity for the black DC kids).

      None of the company executives showed any gumption when asked to testify, always cowering with fear.

      I watched on film Howard Hughes testify in front of Congress and destroyed the Senator from Maine. Those were the men that built this country. It gives me hope that perhaps others will follow the path Mr. Alford took. We have to investigate the criminals that sit in judgment in Washington. Those scum bags work for us. We pay their salary and their cuhsy life-styles.
