I am going back to incandescent bulbs, man

So let me set this up for you so you can see who startling stupid these green laws really are, and I am gonna use someone else’s work to do this. Let’s set the stage:

Starting Jan. 1, the United States will no longer manufacture or import incandescent bulbs – although stores can still sell what they have in stock. The phaseout is a result of federal rules to switch to more energy-efficient bulbs. Energy-efficient

Yeah, this is some serious genius that’s gonna end well

I am not the first to make the prediction that this idiotic idea will result in massive abuse and cost the tax payers of New York a pretty penny. From the article:

New York’s first bank dedicated to boosting the deployment of clean technologies is set to open in early 2014, after the state’s Governor confirmed an initial $210 million of funding.

The NY Green Bank is eventually expected to be capitalized with $1 billion,

For those that were still thinking we need to intervene in Syria

I present this tid-bit from the NYT about how nice those Syrian rebels really are.

The Syrian rebels posed casually, standing over their prisoners with firearms pointed down at the shirtless and terrified men.

The prisoners, seven in all, were captured Syrian soldiers. Five were trussed, their backs marked with red welts. They kept their faces pressed to the dirt as the rebels’ commander recited a bitter revolutionary verse.

“For fifty years, they are companions

It’s all “unexpectedly happening” or just “faux scandalous”, so look over there!..

At a time when the NSA admits to serious abuse and our illustrious president wants us to believe that this abuse of power, like so many other scandals and abuses of power from this administration and their cronies are being swept under the rug, that it is all an accident, most people are worried about their economic situation. How’s that recovery we have been told is just around the corner or happening right now, … Read more

Some perspective on job & economic reality over the last few years

Five years ago when Black Jesus was crowned as the second coming and elected to the once prestigious office of the President of the United States, I remember having a few discussion with a bunch of progressive types at work. My warnings that Black Jesus and his cadre were about to destroy the economy, through the usual progressive belief that forceful coercion of the laws of economics, physics, chemistry, and human nature, by government fiat, … Read more

Some real economic and unemployment numbers to help you put our situation into perspective

Mort Zuckerman has an awesome WSJ article about how the claims by the left of an economic recovery are bunk. For years now the LSM and the donkeys have been pretending we have been going through an economic recovery, but that the reason nobody but they saw it as such, was the fact that it was a jobless recovery. Zuckerman takes that idiotic meme apart in this spiffy article. From the article:

In recent

Can I say “I told you so” yet?

I, and many others that argued this point, were once demonized for pointing out that the Obama administration’s green agenda amounted to all but a war on fossil fuels and would sooner than later result in higher energy prices. Surprise, surprise, now that they have been getting away with murder and any and all abuses of power are ignored or explained away through insane donkey talking points by their shill in the LSM, these green … Read more

Please let them kill it already!

The “them” I am talking about is congress, and the “it” is the ludicrous ethanol mandate that was foisted on us by the evil progressive green movement to make tax payers enrich a bunch of them in return for a royal shafting. AP reports that the ethanol and green lobby are storming D.C. to buy off enough politicians to keep ripping of tax payers and anyone that buys gas so some liberals can make big Read more

Obama’s 2nd term news – Part Deux

I originally intended the first post to be the lead in a weekly series, but the amount of insane shit that is happening just a week after the election just feels like the gift that keeps on giving, so I am going to do another today. BTW, any one of you other authors that want to do some of this, feel free to gang up. I do not want you to feel that I hold … Read more
