Cap-and-trade anti-doughnut, baker says

July 10, 2009

If you live in the St. Louis, MO-area, you should patronize McArthur’s Bakery. Here’s why…

Complaining about the impact of Waxman-Markey on his small business, David McArthur of St. Louis-based McArthur’s Bakery said on Fox News Channel’s Glenn Beck show (Eric Bolling sitting in for Glenn Beck) that,

You know, there are physics that say it takes a certain amount of energy to take a dough product to make it into a bread product. And nothing that anyone wants to do to make the world greener is going to change the amount of energy that goes into that.

This tax directly applies to us as well as every other food manufacturer. And so what it is going to do, long term, essentially says, “You haven’t cut back, so we’re going to continue to tax you and tax you more.” That’s a penalty. You know, quite frankly, the only way I can use less energy to bake a loaf of bread is to quit baking it.

Best of all, the bakery took action. McArthur said:

Well, Saturday, two weeks ago, at about 3:00 in the afternoon, I went to our reader board. We’ve got one of those nice reader board signs on our location. Out front, and I typed “Russ Carnahan voted to close us and other small business.” It was just in sheer – just aggravation, just fed up with it.

What is your business doing to fight Waxman-Markey?

    Well, what would you expect after dumbing down the public for the last 40 years and filling their heads with pseudo science BS? Most of them will be too stupid to understand it anyway. And after their bills go up, because everything will cost more, they will still be too stupid to figure it out.

    Kudos to you Mr. Doughnut Maker. I doubt that 50% of small business has any idea that what their Representative just voted to raise the price of EVERYTHING. Of course, they would be happier if you just CLOSED!

    Don’t worry, Mr. Doughnut Maker. Once Obamacare gets passed, people who want medical coverage from the Government, or who get medical coverage from the Government whether they want it or not, won’t be allowed to EAT doughnuts.
