Environmentalists Causing The Worsening Blackouts.

And they are just making the problem of the lack of power worse.

U.S. electricity blackouts skyrocketing

Smart grids, modernization and gimmicks are what are being offered in the article (I encourage you to read it), but what is not being offered is reality. The United States needs more power plants, more refineries and more sources of power such as nuclear, coal and oil. The very things that so-called environmentalists have prevented for 20 plus years. And in those 20 plus years, through government interference and predatory lawsuits, the cost of producing power has risen astronomically as the avenues to produce any viable amounts of new power has shrunk.

Just as they have been doing to the health care industry these groups have emplaced rules, regulations and legislation to make citizens suffer financially for their energy wants and needs so that citizens will see no other way out, but to bow to the dictates of the government. That is not freedom, but tyranny. It is tyranny no matter how benevolent the tyranny believes itself to be. And health care reform, Cap and Trade and the energy crisis are just the beginning.

Maxine "OneUnited" Waters Drowning In The Swamp

When swimming with sharks like Nancy "The Tuna" Pelosi Maxine Waters should have been more vigilant of swamp rats. Especially when she swam with Charlie "Calypso" Rangel for Hillary "Whitewater" Clinton against Barack "Rezko" Obama.

Rep. Waters charged on three ethics counts

Is the swamp always filled with so many AKAs? Sounds kind of like the streets of Chicago.

Michelle Vacation Spin Starts

After a supposed $375,000 price tag, 40 rooms at a 5 star hotels, shut down beaches and towns and lunch with a king the White House has finally noticed that the little subjects are wagging their tongues. Start spin.

Spain vacation with 'a dear friend' whose father recently died

Mr. Sensitive, Robert Gibbs stated that, "The first lady is on a private trip. She is a private citizen and is the mother of a daughter on a private trip. And I think I'd leave it at that."  Hogwash.

So, a friend's father passed away and a month later they have a get together. The First Lady traveled to Spain using Secret Service personnel, White House staffers and represented the United States to the King of Spain. Never mind that the hotel cost enough a night to pay the monthly rent or mortgage for many Americans out of work right now.

Losing a parent is a hurtful thing and Mrs. Obama has every right, in fact a duty, to console her friend, but not on the taxpayer dime which spent at the rate it was spent is like spitting in the eye of every family going through financial difficulty at the moment. If the First Family and the White House don't get that they are not tone deaf, they are deaf, dumb and blind. Which, in fact, may be their only excuse.
