Obama Said What?

From Michelle Malkin:

Obama administration advises new French president: For sake of world economy, don’t raise taxes and increase spending

By Doug Powers • May 7, 2012 04:34 PM

Sounds to me it’s a mixed message.

Fool of the Present

Obama Pushes Alternative Energy in North Carolina

Visiting the key battleground state of North Carolina today, President Obama urged Americans to embrace alternative energy sources and lessen their dependence on oil, calling it a “fuel of the past.”

Pushing the dominoes over, Mr. Pres**ent?

You just – don’t – get – it.

Over-Regulation Kills

Coal Business. People. Faith. Life giving water. Ability to drrive to work. Economy.

Take your pick.

Actually, you don’t have to. The oversized federal government is doing it all – just for you. And to you. Us, that is.

Can we shrink government now? It has proven it will not follow the Law of the Land, our Constitution. So, they are completely lawless. Throw them in jail.

Misguided Likely Poorly Educated Next Generations

That may be my title for this post, but I didn’t coin the problem.

Watch the video here and you will see just how significant this problem truly is.

Then, see if you agree with the title – and particularly the educator in the news video.

Someone is truly messing up the minds of the next generation(s).

It’s long past time to correct that and tell the truth why the United States has always been the place for people to start a new a better life.

If we lose our exceptionalism because of the likes of socialist/marxist wannabees, not only will no one want to come here to improve themselves …. but there may be nowhere else for anyone to go. Anymore.

It’s called – kissing it goodbye.

Is that what you want? Not me. Not anyhone I know. How about you?

Allen West Tells Liberals Where To Go

Fuel Costs To Increase Soon

One culprit, EPA. Just look what is happening (and has) in St. Croix (U.S. Virgin Islands)

Say Thanks to the EPA and the POTUS for making living & working much more expensive.

And remember who said “NO” to building the Keystone Pipeline.

Let The Sunshine In On Solyndra Escapade

Remember that company? The one that the Obama regime bailed out (even though they would still close down)?

Well so do a lot of us.

Apparently, the White House knew Solyndra was going to fold but WH told them to hold off until AFTER the mid-term elections.

That’s criminal. How do you like your change now?

Remember in November 2012. And here’s an ad by the Americans For Prosperity to help you remember.

UPDATE: Forcing Smart Meters Upon Us

It started in California, this year. About a month ago, when some customers removed their Smart Meter and replaced it with an analog by a liscensed professional electrician. So, this was done properly in accordance with technical requirements, in other words, money was spent to have a professional do the job right. This isn’t about getting electricity without paying for it.

Wendy Sarsfield, a representative from the public utility PG&E, kept insisting that saftey was the main issue for which power was not restored to the homeowners. Upon hearing this, Board Member after Board Member seemed to come up with a viable, workable solution, but it was always unacceptable to the PG&E Rep. After several minutes where the PG&E Rep began sounding like a broken record while refusing to come to any reasonable solution about restoring power to people’s homes (One of which was just to add people to the delay list and reinstall an analog meter until the California Public Utilites Commission-CPUC- finished creating an opt out program), one Board Member cut to the chase……

Get ready, new home construction is expected to have these installed as a matter of course. But when they come after your existing home to “upgrade” your meter – what are you going to do?

Read that whole updated article at GatewayPundit and watch the entire video to see the play-by-play (around 5 minute mark) by everyone and the PG&E representative.

Do you really want the power company to turn off your A/C during the summer and heat during the winter? Because that, and the fact that there are not new power generation plants planned for construction, is what they intend to solve their problem of providing enough energy for everyone’s consumption.

UPDATE: In British Columbia (Canada), it appears their smart meters will track power usage against specific devices by category. How about that. Forget about privacy – even in your own home, government – local or otherwise – intrudes deeper into your lives.

Stealing From Social Security

House Republicans may save Social Security

That’s the title for a post by Don Surber. But within that post is a little nugget that explains where the next “stimulus” would come from. Apperently, the President would like to take a quarter of a trillion right – out – of – Social Security’s trust fund.

How do you like him now?

This Is Not Politics

This is obstructionism at its worst.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) tried to bring up the House-passed payroll-tax bill for a vote with the intention of summarily rejecting it, but Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) objected. McConnell pushed for the Senate to first vote on an omnibus spending bill that would fund much of the federal government through 2012 and avert a shutdown after Friday night.

The two leaders ended their exchange with no immediate path forward. McConnell urged Reid to negotiate with Boehner, but Reid said “the Speaker can’t negotiate with me until this bill is killed” — referring to the payroll-tax measure.
