*****Another concern that's rearing its ugly head again is the Kyoto treaty. Supposedly, if a country signs on to the treaty, which even Bill Clinton refused to do, each country would get a limited number of carbon dioxide credits.

We are, at least for the time being, a sovereign country, and should never sign on to anything that puts us in the "global community." In the past, liberals have tried to shove this down our throats under the guise of Cap and Trade. Now that the democrats have a majority in Congress and a very liberal President, the dems will again try to get this bill passed. Senator Barbara Boxer, California Democrat, has said that she will draft a cap and trade legislation for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in as little as the next few weeks and definitely before the end of the year.
