Missing the Point

Today's EPA ruling - that so-called "greenhouse gases" are to be regulated by the EPA as hazardous atmospheric products - is *not* because of Copenhagen. Nor is it "in spite of" ClimateGate.

This potentially disastrous piece of mischief is because of ClimateGate.

'Cap and Trade' has been stalled in the Senate; with ClimateGate, it's chances of passage had probably dropped to nil. This went double for anything BHO brought back from Copenhagen - a treaty requiring 66 votes for Senate ratification was even more DOA than a bill requiring 60 votes for cloture.

With ClimateGate - with the wheels coming off the "scientific" facade of "Man-made Global Warming" - the administration knew that unilateral executive action was its last chance to impose its crippling, garbage-science policies upon the U. S.

Now is the time for real oversight - and a meaningful threat to use the power of the purse, to filibuster any appropriation bill that includes funds used to enforce this insanity.

And now is also the time to realize that jobs and the economy don't matter to BHO - only raw power, used in the nastiest way and for the nastiest purpose: self-perpetuation.

About Me

I'm a 57 year old geek. I voted Democratic for 20 years, because I disliked the Republicans more. But now, nobody really speaks for me. I'm for Guns, for more correct government regulation of the financial world, against illegal immigration and amnesty. (in 2008 I ended up voting Republican - too many questions about Obama, and voting against anybody who voted for TARP 1.) In 2010 I voted a stright republican ticket because the Democrats have completely lost their minds.
