Green Movement Turning Brown And It Ain't Mud

Green autos, green food, green energy, green everything. Everywhere one goes there is something green or acting green or organic or environmentally friendly. Products such as washing and drying machines had to be redesigned, costing a lot more money, to save our planet.
As recycling plants popped up all over so did the warehouses filled with recycled materials. They still sit filled, but products tout being made of recycled material. Watch TV for an evening and see green coffee, green cleaners, green lights and even green TVs to watch the world turn green.

A flagship idea of the green movement, even highlighted by the Green Party, are wind turbines. The Green Party here in Ohio whose candidate, Dennis Spisak, has constantly spoken of the wonders of wind power. His "Why not Ohio" relates to all things green and just last month Dennis put out a press release entitled, "Why not Ohio? Spanish wind power company creates 1,100 jobs."

Why not Ohio? Well, because like everything else about the whole environmental movement/profit driven/power grab, it seems that Ohio doesn't need more green hoax.

‘Anti-Lobbyist’ Obama Administration Recruited Left-Wing Lobbyists to Sell Bogus ‘Green Jobs’
After two studies refuted President Barack Obama’s assertions regarding the success of Spain’s and Denmark’s wind energy programs, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request reveals the Department of Energy turned to George Soros and to wind industry lobbyists to attack the studies

I am a capitalist, so if companies want to try to sell me green underwear, deodorant, cereal, or whatever, that's their choice. If political parties want to sell green candidates, hey, more power to them. I won't vote for the candidates and I won't buy their products. I know when I am being bullied and when I am being taken, so I will actively work against what they are trying to do.

I want green beer on St Patrick's Day, I want green lawns, I want to make enough green to live, but I really don't buy their scam.

If I want green flip flops, I have a number of politicians I can buy. These days they come cheap.

Gas $7 Per Gallon For A "Theory" That's Falling Apart.

Now that AGW is settled science, oh wait, it isn't settled science, it is unsettled because it appears that the fix was in years ago just to make some serious cash. And someone saw the power that could be grabbed with the dubious at best science of AGW for an already failed political system of government control. Of everything.

Since they can't get you to stop buying vehicles you want they'll blackmail you through your gas tank. It's an ugly job destroying the fossil fuel industry, but somebody has to do it if the new energy industry is to succeed. And since the new industry can't win in the market place they have to have an ally that can force the issue. Enter closed door meetings between the 'green' acolytes and government bureaucrats. Quid pro quo.

Fuel Taxes Must Rise, Harvard Researchers Say
To meet the Obama administration’s targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions, some researchers say, Americans may have to experience a sobering reality: gas at $7 a gallon.

This administration reminds me of the bungling crooks that for years plan meticulously and then blow it with arrogance. A little more patience and a few $100 mil more in cash could've sealed the deal with bought and paid for scientists, but with the White House and both the House and the Senate and a well paid bloated bureaucracy in their pockets, they jumped the gun. They never counted on scared politicians, the Internet and scientists that wouldn't toe the line.

And these morons think people are going to pay $7 per gallon for a theory that becomes more laughable by the day? Especially when WalMart is having a sale? On snow tires.

Power to the people and all that.

Charlie Rangel Steps Down Before Demos Vote Him Out

Rep. Rangel steps down from tax committee
Embattled Democrat takes ‘leave of absence’ amid ongoing probe

Personally I would like second-ranking, but first rank in the minds of loon lovers, to take the gavel. Who doesn't love the antics of Pete Stark-raving mad?

"You think you are big enough to make me, you little wimp? Come on. Come over here and make me, I dare you. You little fruitcake."

Of course, just like so many congressmen, like Rangel, Petey has a residence, tax and ethics problem. In short, he lies:

KTVU Channel 2 News has learned the modest house in Rep. Stark's East Bay congressional district that he purportedly lives in is in fact owned and occupied by his in-laws. No one KTVU contacted in the neighborhood has ever seen him near in the house.

Yes, there is a stark difference. At least Charlie Rangel is an affable crook.

UPDATE: Now Charlie is spouting things like, "You bet your life on it" and other such nonsense when asked if he will remain as chairman. This is an obvious slap in the face for Nancy Pelosi who bravely stated, “I guess he is still chair of Ways and Means…”

The Honorable Charles Bernard Rangel is only taking a "leave of absence" until the heat is over or the investigation concludes.

Maybe he can use this time to collect some rents and wash his garaged forever Mercedes.

Federalizing American Land For Federal Standards

When does a state have the right to tell the federal government enough is enough, no more. If I remember correctly, about 30% of American land is owned by some form of government. Put in Kelo and other potential land grabs and there might not be much private land left soon.

White House land grab Rate this story
Proposal to seize land would favor animals over Americans
The 21-page document, marked "Internal Draft-NOT FOR RELEASE," names 14 different lands Mr. Obama could completely close for development by unilaterally designating them as "monuments" under the 1906 Antiquities Act.

It says all kinds of animals would be better off by doing so, like the coyotes, badgers, grouse, chickens and lizards. But giving the chickens more room to roost is no reason for the government to override states' rights.

Rep. Robert Bishop, Utah Republican, made the memo public because he didn't want another unilateral land grab by the White House, like what happened under former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter.

Using the Antiquities Act, President Carter locked up more land than any other president had before him, taking more than 50 million acres in Alaska despite strong opposition from the state.
