Obama: Give Me What I Want Or I’ll Take it Anyway

By Caomhin

Very easy to read between the lines here.  At issue is, of course, emissions control, though if we could cut his BS in half, the world would be a better place much more rapidly.  You see, Obama has a very big frown on his face because he hasn’t had his climate bill pass and he’s currently over in Copenhagen trying to figure out how to further kneecap our economy and personal freedoms without having to be the one to take personal responsibility for it when it comes to pass.

Check this out:

The Obama administration is warning Congress that if it doesn’t move to regulate greenhouse gases, the Environmental Protection Agency will take a “command-and-control” role over the process in a way that could hurt business.

But while administration officials have long said they prefer Congress take action on climate change, the economic official who spoke with reporters Tuesday night made clear that the EPA will not wait and is prepared to act on its own.

And it won’t be pretty.

“If you don’t pass this legislation, then … the EPA is going to have to regulate in this area,” the official said. “And it is not going to be able to regulate on a market-based way, so it’s going to have to regulate in a command-and-control way, which will probably generate even more uncertainty.”

See how that works?  If Congress doesn’t give him what he wants, he’s just going to use and arm of the Executive Branch to implement his plans and bypass Congress.  Basically, once again, we are seeing contempt for the separation of powers that were enacted to protect the people of this nation from an overreaching government, no matter which branch was stepping out of bounds.  In this case, Obama is clearly trying to strong arm Congress, essentially threatening them.

Nearly everything we do and purchase involves carbon.  I guess that goes without say though, seeing as we exhale carbon every time we breath.  Obama is seeking to impose penalties upon people not just for doing business but by simply existing.  Heat you home? That’s a taxing.  Eat a meal?  That’s a taxing.  Drive a car?  That’s a taxing.  It is unacceptable and we can not stand for this, ever.  The only thing worse than implementing this at all, before alternative technologies can be developed (we still don’t have a truly viable battery which would allow wind and solar to become much more viable) is refusing to allow proven alternative sources (such as nuclear, natural gas, etc.) from coming to the market place.  All of this, of course, is being done at a time when Liberal economic policies have hung America with an unemployment rate of over 10%, which some are forecasting to rise to over 12%, a spiraling national debt, many of our allies feeling snubbed (the most recent of which is Norway), and a myriad of other issues which all should have been at least in part remedied by logical, simple solutions, all of which have been ignored or dismissed by the current Administration in favor of plans which have exacerbated the issues.

    Oh, it’s getting even worse. He’s going to rule by executive order now.
