Stopping the EPA

Pages: 1 2

And here we stand at the precipice of what could become a real energy crisis, and we have an ideologue at the helm and an EPA on steroids. Consider the words spoken to the Governor’s Ethanol Coalition in 2006, when then-Senator Obama said, “…for all of our military might and economic dominance, the Achilles heel of the most powerful country on Earth is the oil we cannot live without.” There is a lot of truth to Obama’s statement, and it would be one of those seminal moments if followed up by an inspirational call to sensible action. But most understand that the green energy movement is not a call to sensible action but rather to irrational policies and irresponsible spending at our expense. Think: Solyndra.

Liberals love to argue that Republicans are anti-environmentalists who are in bed with the oil industry. Not true; they instead typically provide a more measured response to issues. In the case of this ruling, the GOP looked out for “the folks.” In a December 31, 2011 press release, House Energy and Commerce Committee chairman Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) said there must be “a more sensible approach to regulations” to make rules “achievable in the real world.” Attorney General Pam Bondi (R-FL) concurred in a similar press release saying, “We cannot allow Floridians, many of whom are already suffering financial hardships, to bear the brunt of costly federal regulations.”

In stark contrast, an empty Air Force One touched down in Hawaii the other day, and then the President stepped out. This man, who is more in love with his self-image than America, and more occupied with his re-election campaign than the health of our republic, is chronically AWOL when it comes to doing the right thing by the American people, and in particular, repressive EPA regulations.

    Who does Obama represent? It certainly isn't the American people.

    “an empty Air Force One touched down in Hawaii the other day, and then the President stepped out. ”

    I am staggered by the perfection of that phrase….. It is borderline perfection, almost worthy of shakspear (however he preferred to spell his name….)

    Rational response to over-priced energy is of course possible, but not by this or most other administrations. As a canuck who has studied such things for decades, start with 3 easy steps: 1: insulate, especially your attic. 2: seal the house as much as possible, and install an air-to-air heat exchanger. 3: other steps, such as bolt-on passive solar heating, now make a great deal of sense, check it out for your own area. 4: Government? Tell them to get the hell out of the way.

    Environmental groups like Greenpeace and the Sierra Club, as well as the EPA in its current form, need to be curbed and brought to heel.

    Our future depends on it.
