HUMAN ACHIEVEMENT HOUR vs. EARTH HOUR
Saturday, March 31
On Saturday March 31st 2012, some people, businesses, and governments will shut off their lights for one hour as a symbolic "Earth Hour" gesture against global climate change. We think this sends the wrong message and represents a rejection of human innovation and progress.
Instead, join the Competitive Enterprise Institute for Human Achievement Hour – an annual celebration of individual freedom and appreciation of the achievements and innovations that people have used to improve their lives throughout history.
During Human Achievement Hour, 8:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. - enjoy the benefits of capitalism and human innovation. Keep your lights ON for Human Achievement Hour!

The House of Representatives rejected the Obama administration’s proposed budget 414-to-0; it failed to get a single Democratic vote. While the GOP-controlled House has just passed a budget plan of its own, the Democratic-controlled Senate has not passed a single budget during the Obama Administration, leaving the country without an official budget for over a thousand days.
One way to reduce trillion-dollar deficits would be to pass legislation eliminating obstacles to economic growth. The more the economy grows, the more tax revenue the government will have. But Obama administration policies have created more obstacles to job creation, and are preventing the economy from recovering at a rapid rate.
