Insanity

March 7, 2013

"Does anyone out there find it odd that we are now borrowing close to 46 percent of our national budget"

That is in fact a lie.

"China is building more and more coal fired electrical plants as President Obama is doing everything he can to close ours down"

China is building more power plants of all kinds. They actually lead the world in construction of alternative energy plants.

Maybe someone could point out exactly what the President has done to close coal fired plants in the US. I'm fairly certain they all require federal permitting, which means the President could close every coal fired plant in America tomorrow if he wanted to, yet he hasn't.

"Obama in conjunction with Associated Press , Goldman Sachs and the Federal Reserve have done more economic damage to America than all our enemies since 1776!"

Yes! Why the president is so evil, that he actually built a time machine, and went back and collapsed the US economy so severely, that it almost took down the entire global economy with it, before he was elected. No wait a minute...that was the guy that the letter writer voted for twice, that collapsed the economy.

"Maybe someone could point out exactly what the President has done to close coal fired plants in the US." - CHayes

There are some new environmental regulations that require coal power plants to significantly reduce hazardous metal emissions by 2015. The EPA says the regulation will prevent up to 11,000 premature deaths each year but will cost the industry billions of dollars in upgrades. Older plants could be shuttered.

insanity - the national debt has grown about 75% since 2008. We are spending money WE (the people) don't have and can't possible find. News Flash - this will impact EVERYONE at some point and those that need help most will be hardest hit. Sadly, we the people, our Gov and even business is taking advantage and and scratching and clawing at every free meal ticket it can get. Will they remember they too had skin in the game?

Add yesterday's testimony on drones to Mr. DuPont's list and I also have tremendous doubts on whether our Justice Department is really just or whether they are a political puppet for the administration.

Justice should not be swayed by politics.

Gavin your statement is funny, you kind of imply that the EPA is at fault for protecting us. Should we let those hazardous metal emissions into the air or should we let 11,000 people be sacrificed for the good of the cause. China is having a serious problem with air and water pollution. Shall we go back to that? On a second note, the coal industry is loving this.

Maybe this author of this should look in the mirror for the definition of “insanity”. Watching and listening to the same TV and radio show that have only one thing in mind, making money and believing its real news or its true and accurate depiction of facts. News flash - these shows will do and say anything that makes them money. Same is true about those elected officials in Washington.

Keep believing we aren't destroying air quality. Keep believing adulteration of food is just fine. Keep your head in the sand.

Rick, all I did was answer Chris's question. I didn't side either way on the issue, but I will add that if we do not replace the generated electricity that these facilities produced, we will be looking at higher electric utility bills.

"That's right, China is building more and more coal fired electrical plants"

I suggest anyone that thinks we should pattern our environmental regulations on those of the Chinese, try this:

-Search google for "china air pollution"

-At the top of the page, click the "images" tab (just to the right of the "web" tab

-Look at the pictures, then come back and explain why you would want the US to look like that

Hazy, we all know the pollution in China is abysmal. They have little or no regulation. The EPA, as Gavin stated below, costs the industry billions with all the emission controls that are mandated. There needs to be some compromise here as coal is plentiful and provides cheap power. But Obama's goal is to bankrupt the coal industry.

Oh yeah, Mr. "clean coal technology" is out to bankrupt the coal industry.

"Hazy, we all know the pollution in China is abysmal."

Then why do you want to bring it here to the US? You want to abolish the EPA, and simultaneously build more coal fired plants than China. The only conclusion a reasonable person could come to from that, is you want to mimic, or even out do the pollution of China.

Abolishing the coal industry was one of Barry's goals when he first ran for President.

I never said abolish the EPA, but it needs to be reigned in. I added the word 'compromise' in my previuos post but of course, Hazy, you chose to skirt around it.

There are some in the republican party that would like to abolish the EPA. In fact they would like to abolish NPR and NOW. I guess they don't like organizations with 3 letters.

I did like this statement made here:

"There needs to be some compromise here as coal is plentiful and provides cheap power"

Enough said on this comment.

Expected more disagrees although was I was referring both ends of the political spectrum.

I argue that every one of you who disagrees would take the offer of tens of millions in pay at a TV or radio station no matter what they wanted you say. I would include myself in that as if the listener is too stupid to believe everything they hear and/or see on these types of programs that’s their problem.

It’s truly unfortunate to think so many folks truly believe these programs are factual or based on logic and reason. These programs and many groups who support them have only one goal in mind MONEY, the more the better. They will simply say and do anything for money. It’s also truly unfortunate that so many in the area don’t understand this. They believe truly loony things these groups say as if were gospel. Reminds me of the sky is falling… it is always the big bad government is going to do to you…

Hello... you are the government… remember, for the people by the people thingy!

This is off subject of coal, but definitely on the subject of insanity!

From "DEMS GONE WILD" continuing gun saga.....

State Sen. Audrey Gibson, (D)

A Florida legislator wants anyone trying to buy ammunition to complete an anger management program first, in what critics say is the latest example of local lawmakers reaching for constitutionally-dubious solutions to the problem of gun violence.

The bill filed Saturday by state Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, would require a three-day waiting period for the sale of any firearm and the sale of ammunition to anyone who has not completed anger management courses. The proposal would require ammo buyers to take the anger management courses every 10 years.

Democrats have completely lost any vestige of sanity!!!!

The latest attack took place in a Dunkin donuts.....with an axe.

I can see the new legislation being written as we speak...

You must have a permit and trees in your yard in order to purchase an axe. To buy your axe, you must pass a psych evaluation, and sit through a mandatory 8 hour safety course. All axe owners will be required to retake the safety course every 5 years. All axe owners will be required to carry axe liability insurance

The axe handle shall only be made of wood, and not a composite material. If made with a composite type material it would be considered an "assault axe". If found in possession of an "assault axe" or an axe that has been modified, you will be a charged with a Class C felony, and sentenced to pay a fine of up to $10,000 and 3 years in jail.

Get ready I'm sure it's coming, I would expect nothing less from the dem controlled legislature and a dem governor!

"Abolishing the coal industry was one of Barry's goals when he first ran for President."

So you mean in the 2008 campaign, when he couldn't speak highly, or often enough about "clean coal technology"? Did you watch the same campaign that I did?

We all saw the same campaign, which is still ongoing. For about 49% of us, we knew that Obama was not telling the truth in all his glowing references to 'clean coal technology'! After all, his lips were moving and sound was coming out. Those are sure signs that you can't believe a word of it.

Why do we need the EPA when our state has the DEP?

Fifty two agencies doing the same thing is a waste.

Allow every state to control what they want. Local power is more responsive to the people.
