First off I want to say that I used to always go to the Gazette-Times for my updated news stories. I have never seen so much biased and condescending information posted or in the paper from your newspaper until you wrote the article on the cap and trade rally.
“By 8 a.m., hundreds of people were on the Capitol Mall, wearing chrome and colored hard hats, suspenders and boots, cheered on by pop songs blaring from overhead speakers. Dozens if not hundreds of semitrucks and pickup trucks with flags and painted messages protesting the bill circled the block, sounding their airhorns.”
This is absolutely absurd and spun to sound “trashy” which is a bunch of crap. I am so appalled at your ability to actually do some research and post an article to show what we as a whole are trying to do. This. Bill. Will. Kill. Many. Jobs! If not all the timber industry! Have you even realized that all this bill will do is let big rich companies buy credits to pollute more?! How is that even helping the environment? Please take the time to actually read it; actually listen to the hard-working people who know exactly who this will hurt!
