Why does the wall street journal hate freedom?

Ok, so this is like, so, like wow dude...
"With the scientific evidence mounting that we are fast approaching a dangerous tipping point beyond which climate change will accelerate rapidly, we really urgently need to move the bill forward," said Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I., Conn.) the subcommittee chairman and one of the authors of the legislation.

Republicans said that they opposed the measure because of the effects on the U.S. economy. "I have tremendous concerns regarding the impact," said Sen. John Barrasso (R., Wyo.). He said that his state shipped about 450 tons of coal last year, and "this legislation puts that industry at risk."

Under the bill, the Environmental Protection Agency would have responsibility for allocating the credits. Initially, some 18% of the credits would be auctioned off by a new body, called the Climate Change Credit Corporation. By the 2036 calendar year, the corporation would auction off 73% of the allowances. Of the auction proceeds, some 55% would be used for so-called energy technology deployment, including to encourage the development of new automobiles.

I mean why don't they just run the banner headline that they are stabbing our troops in the back by openly supporting the Tie Died Dope Smokers who are all draft dodgers bent upon the destruction of our white christian america...

Now don't get me wrong here folks, simply because the wall street journal has become the militant radical extremist wing of the EconTerrorists doesn't mean that they are bad people in league with satan bent upon selling off the white women to Devil Worshippers.

But it sooooo worries me that they have decided to so blatantly stab the troops in the back....

Who knows, maybe at some point in the process the fine folks may decide that the various needs to find more ways to pass the tax payers monies to pollutors could be done, well a bit more cost effectively....

Then, well, yes, there is that whole problem with China Inc. and it's little social problems with spewing more pollution in the air to create the crap that americans need to have to play act as if they are.... gosh kids, what IS it that americans need to play act that they are, so that they can feel emotionally safe about backing the whomever it is to win the whatever it is, because, well, without them, why would we as americans need so many more tax cuts for the people who, well... wouldn't be able to buy their 2nd Boeing 767 to take the kids friends along to the beach....

But thank GOD!!! we are going to have some progress on something...
