EPA

February 17, 2010

If Nixon was indeed a crook the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the reason. He proposed this cluster that hung its shingle out in December of 1970. This is one hack outfit and I don’t ever recall anything good coming out of it. I don’t expect anything, and the fact that my tax dollars support it sickens me.

The EPA is responsible for most of the BS to come down the loss of freedom pike. All that emission crap strapped to your car that reduces your fuel economy and horsepower are a direct result of this group. Unleaded gas, a perfectly worthless addition to the scene is their baby. Ethanol, the crap of the new millennium, is also a product of their nimble minds. None of this does any good and all of it is detrimental yet the agency continues.

Their latest edict, that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, is quite possibly one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. The fact that greenhouse gases do not even exist aside, carbon dioxide is an integral part of our true eco system. The plants need it. They breath it in. They will die without it. Have you ever looked at the picture that they use to describe the greenhouse effect? It’s like a comic, a bad one. For an uplifting story on this subject check out how Virginia is handling it. And as always, screw environmentalists.

You know, a good place to cut the federal budget might be the EPA. Just thinking out loud here. What have they really given us for our $62 billion or whatever ridiculous amount of tax dollars they suck up every year? (You try to decipher the federal budget.)

Warmis Are Heating Up

September 29, 2009

Well the Senate Environmental and Public Works committee (that’s sure a commie sounding name) has produced a master piece of legislative engineering co-sponsored by the best and brightest the socialist party has to offer, Lurch (John Kerry)¬†and Boxer. It has provisions that would reduce the cost of emissions permits for utilities and “other major greenhouse gas producers”. Besides this gap in specific language it has many other gaps that the socialists are saying demonstrates how much they are willing to negotiate to pass this bill.

Well that’s darn swell of them but again, we breath in the air and breath out the carbon dioxide and the trees breath in the carbon dioxide and breath out the air. Perfect set up designed by God. No need for socialists to regulate it. You see my major objection to all the “regulating” that the federal gubmint is doing is that they have no authority to do it, the individual States are responsible for this. The same for health care and the auto industry, get out and stay out.

Now, if that doesn’t get your thong in a wad, the Republicans are cozying up to this. Yeah, it has some provisions that they find exciting. It offers new incentives for nuclear power plant construction. David Doniger, the climate policy director for the Natural Resources Defense Council called it a “green flag” and said that there is still time for the Senate to get something done this year. WTF is the Natural Resources Defense Council? I looked it up. It’s another one of those parasitic “non profits”. But it sure sounds impressive, huh? I envision David as one of those old hippies with thinning hair and a scraggly pony tail in one of those awful tweed jackets with the gay patches on the elbows reaking of his compost pile. But I could be wrong. At any rate it appears we have to start nagging our clowns in DC again or we’ll be paying through the nose for worthless regulation of a non problem.
