(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Mr Obama: Killing Your Power Next

Because of new EPA rules regarding coal-fired electrical generation plants, it is anticipated that two things will occur:

1. Power prices will skyrocket and
2. Power supplies will range from rolling blackouts to complete blackouts

Already, Texas is addressing the issue due to the regulations which begin January 1st of 2012. From the DFW Star-Telegram:

The head of the Texas Public Utility Commission expressed concern Friday that a new federal air quality rule, set to take effect Jan. 1, will cause disruptions in electric service.

If implementation of the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule is not delayed, "I have no doubt in my mind that this rule will result in reliability issues and rolling outages in Texas," Donna Nelson said at the start of the commission's meeting.

In review, you of course recall the comments made by Mr Obama in 2008:

I was the first to call for a 100 percent auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter," Obama continued. "That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.

"So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted."

Question for you: did we already vote "yes" on CapN Tax in Congress and I missed it?

Why, no, we didn't. This is simply the EPA acting on its own.

Further, from The Washington Post:
Industry groups such the Edison Electric Institute, which represents investor-owned utilities, and the American Legislative Exchange Council have dubbed the coming rules “EPA’s Regulatory Train Wreck.” The regulations, they say, will cost utilities up to $129 billion and force them to retire one-fifth of coal capacity. Given that coal provides 45 percent of the country’s power, that means higher electric bills, more blackouts and fewer jobs. The doomsday scenario has alarmed Republicans in the House, who have been scrambling to block the measures. Environmental groups retort that the rules will bring sizeable public health benefits, and that industry groups have been exaggerating the costs of environmental regulations since they were first created.

I should care to point out that Texas has one of the more solid electrical generation grids in the nation. A state such as Fornicalia, which is an abortion of regulatory restrictions, will be further throttled. One has but to do what I call the Logical Extension:

At this point, anyone living in a dense population center such as LA, San Francisco, Sacramento, had best be prepared not just for a lack of power, but the resulting riots and looting from (no longer "minority) majority thugs.

But hey, in the midst of a second recent recession, whilst bordering on an actual Depression, it's the perfect time to both jack up electrical -- and hence, all -- energy rates and ensure an interruption of electrical power because Americans can so afford both of these things presently.

Is there any aspect of American life that Mr Obama simply doesn't want to eviscerate or kill?

Yes, one: the Good Life in DC.

Backslapping all around.


And any American would even remotely consider giving the man another four years to further grind this country flatter still, under his political heels?

This IS the CHANGE that Obaka promised in his campaign.
But the "neanderthal" voters were so swooned by this magic negro they did not care to fully investigate what this CHANGE would really be.
STUPID people,
Communist Obaka bastards, all of them shall be out of a job next election, IF this USA can hold together till then.
And I am not sure it can.
Lock and load fellow patriots and oath keepers.

It is truly amazing to see so many nuts come out of the can because the energy special interests refuse to shave a percent or two off their windfall profits. How well conditioned the right wing Pavlov Dog is when this industry snaps its fingers. It is truly a tribute to the power of persuasion that the energy special interests could convince people to fight against there own interests. Sick and perverse. But still impressive.

SS: excellent, my Obama Dupe. Let's shut down the national electrical grid and kill the economy further. I guess older people and infants just don't primarily factor to you -- nor do the poor. Because THOSE are the people who will have to PAY with their LIVES when the electrical grids brown or black out, and they can no longer be cooled or heated.

Excellent, my friend, excellent. Make people bake and freeze in order to prove your point.

Keep eating your pablum my friend, and keep pushing the CHEESEBURGER icon at McDonald's. How's Mom & Dad's basement this time of year? Ooops, sorry, might not be very cool or warm in your near future.

MrC: and you can see from SS that there is so much THOUGHT given to their wishes.

Just let Ms SS's FREE CHEESE stop, and see what they think then.

The EPA has done and is doing a vast amount of good in our lives since it was established in 1970 under the Nixon administration. That was back when being a Republican was not synonymous with being a denier of scientific fact. If you would trouble yourself with researching the condition of our environment and the industrial pollution that was going on at the time of the creation of the EPA, then perhaps you'd have a better understanding of what's been accomplished. And do you think for a microsecond that industry today would not lapse back into the anything goes approach if not for firm regulations dealing with what comes out of the smokestack or out of the drainpipe? It is dead wrong for anyone, especially pandering rightwing politicians, to equate the EPA with "tyranny."

You, ma'am, are going to be the first one to bleat and whine when your power dims and extinguishes; you won't be manipulating your PlayStation, charging your iPod, Crackberry, watching MTV or listening to Green Day. The sky is not falling, the planet is not doomed, Armageddon isn't right around the corner -- anything that isn't man-made economically, that is. And YOU are so NOT going to enjoy your Coming America under The One should he acquire all his ways. It amazes me how incredibly myopic the Religious Left truly is.

Ye Gods, where will they stop??? When we're riding horses and using wood to heat our houses (no wait, that would be 'pollution')... And I'll bet SS loves her a/c...

Most Americans don't seem to have a clue as to how much damage that Obamanomics has done.

There are many families who won't be able to "survive" the coming hike in energy costs. On a personal level, I'd like nothing better than to turn down the thermostat here in my house in the winter. But Mr. AOW, ever since his stroke, can't stand those lower temperatures! He literally shivers and -- worse -- has muscle spasms, which cause him to lose his balance and end up on the floor. For Mr. AOW, a higher temperature in the home is not a luxury! The same is true of most most elderly. Visit a nursing home: it feels like a furnace in there -- for a reason.

Thanks to Obama, household budgets will be destroyed, and more people forced onto the government dole -- or literally out into the streets.

Our government has its priorities screwed up-
Look at the conditions our "poor" live in:
Cell phones.
Flat screen TVs.
Computers and access to the internet.
Free visits to clinics and the Emergency Room.
Food and shelter provided either at no, or low cost.

When the bottom falls out and these "necessities" can no longer be provided, how will our "poor" react?

I'm tellin' ya SoulStraw, it ain't gonna be a lark. If you're not prepared to protect yourself from these leeches you'll not last long.

Revolution is coming.
It will be ugly for quite a while.

BINGO! Our "poor" are the Middle Classes in every other nation!

Boo-fucking-hoo! No LOBSTER TAIL purchase this week, as they drive off in their Lexus.
