Constitution Again Under Assault by Rogue Obamiacs

As if on cue for our current theme here on governments abusing their power and the people they govern, the Obama Administration has stepped in it again, this time ignoring the Congress, which earlier had refused to pass the president's so called 'climate change' legislation of taxing the consumption of fuels. Yes, the state is on the move, running roughshod over the people and pushing their carbo-taxing bilge into implementation under the specious argument that 'carbon compounds' (you know, like trees, shrubs, flowers and grass) pose a risk to the environment and must be regulated by our friends at the Fed through the Environmental Protection Agency, as seen here.
After failing to get climate-change legislation through Congress, the Obama administration plans on pushing through its environmental policies through other means, and Republicans are ready to put up a fight. On Jan. 2, new carbon emissions limits will be put forward as the Environmental Protection Agency prepares regulations that would force companies to get permits to release greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act.
Hey, Barry, wasn't I just talking about the abuse of power and the flagrant failure to abide by the restraints that had been instituted in our government to protect the people? Yeah, right? Sheesh. It is as though this guy is completely in contempt of our nation's laws and form of representative government.
Critics say the new rules are a backdoor effort to enact the president's agenda on global warming without the support of Congress.
Yeah, and they say that for no other reason than that is exactly what it is. That and the fact that the asinine program is makes little to no sense in terms of its science, will cripple the econmomy, stiffle growth and destroy the nation's hope of recovery.
"They are job killers. Regulations, period -- any kind of regulation is a weight on economy. It requires people to comply with the law, which takes work hours and time, which reduces the profitability of firms. Therefore, they grow more slowly and you create less jobs," said environmental scientist Ken Green of the American Enterprise Institute.

Very true. Of course, we can't have a report these days without an effort to get "both sides", this time offered up by Mr. Howells of the economic think tank Greenpeace.
"I was looking at some advertisements from the 1970s where they were making the very same arguments about stopping acid rain. And that didn't turn out to be a job-killer. In fact, it created jobs in some places," said Howells, the environmental group's deputy campaign director. "The more we keep making these decades-old arguments, the more we won't be creating the jobs of the future and working towards the new energy economy."
A new energy economy, Mr. Howells? What does that look like, exactly? An economy based on windmills on the plains and solar panels in the desert? Rest assured the Greenpeace deputy campaign director has his finger on the pulse of our economy. Is that the same guy stuck on that desert isle with Giligan? "Lovee!" What a moron.
The administration says it has the power to issue the regulation...
Of course they do. And Vladimir Putin threw comrade Khodorkovsky "in jail" because "every thief should go to jail."
The administration recently circulated a memo from the Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy John Holdren to the heads of all federal departments and agencies calling for "a clear prohibition on political interference in scientific processes and expanded assurances of transparency."

    STFU, Mr. Greepeace. Socialists don't get to comment on Capitalist systems or policy. You guys never created a job that didn't rely on a handout or government subsidy to fund.

    Climate change is a fraud. Just like "manmade global warming" that preceeded it. No theory has a use if it can't predict anything. Just a couple of years ago, you guys were predicting the end of snow. Oh, the tears! "Our children and grandchildren will never see snow in their lifetimes!" Boo friggin' hoo. Now snowy winters are caused by warming. So are dry ones and every combination in between, hot or cold. Not getting around like you used to? Climate change! Fewer bowel movements? Climate change. It explains everything. And nothing. You changeheads must think that people are absolutely stupid to buy your premise. Sure they bought the old one, but c'mon!

    Keep your dirty stinkin' paws off our energy!
