I'm impressed that Mr. Bennett has finally embraced the reality of human-caused climate change.

Unfortunately, his reaction to it remains the same as ever. "We're so helpless. We can't do anything at all about it."

Talk about shirking responsibilities...

@JKR "...the groove as a columnist."

Bailout Bob is trying to rehabilitate himself in the pages of the Deseret News. He's better off as a lobbyist. Serving special interests is what he does best.

Senator Bennett, better late than never. I want to be positive about the future, which is why I didn't listen to Obama's speech. There are no answers in Washington. Only in defense of God and our Constitutional rights do Americans have a chance to remain free. Stop the futility of hope in leaders whose hearts are corrupt and desire only power.

No we aren't all in this together Pops. Sorry. Fact is only those who got pay checks got the payroll tax increase starting Jan 1st. The welfare crowd didn't get touched. Get the picture? Heck even my college student son who has a wife and young son got the payroll tax increase - a BIG tax increase too. So ANYONE who works - who tries to provide for himself is penalized and the welfare bums are rewarded for doing nothing. That my friend is the Obama way. The liberal way. The Communist way. The more dependent you become on the government the better off you are - the incentive is to push you toward government dependence. Success and self reliance is taxed to DEATH!!! Of course Barack lied through his teeth about the taxes on the middle class but ... nothing new here.


Let me be a little more clear, Patriot. If our nation fails, we all will suffer. We need to find real solutions to the real problems we face. I suspect we agree that there's not a revenue problem but a spending problem. The government can only take so much from the private sector before the private sector either can't or won't take it any more. There's also an underlying systemic problem which is that driving energy prices up through overregulation and horrid energy investment choices such as wind and solar drives the standard of living down, and there's no graceful way for that to happen.

This continuous shouting of "it's Bush's fault" or "Obama's a Marxist" may both be true to some extent, but it doesn't get us any closer to solutions.
