Wicked Commentary

The Ice Age Cometh

Having lived in Cincinnati all my life up to 4 years ago, I always thought the University of Cincinnati was a conservative college.  Apparently not anymore.  And with the Queen of Darkness,  Ms. LISA JACKSON,  the EPA head  has constructed a new strategy to use college campuses and moron students there to hail her power-corrupt policies.  Ah, just what we need in this country is more useful idiots.

Power grabbing, hungry witch!

Now, I recall a time when all the coal plants in Ohio were required to place scrubbers on them.  We tax payers paid dearly for that endeavor for years with higher energy prices.  Once again Ohio is going to be hit hard along with many other states for the new EPA clean air standards rules.

If I were one of these students’ parents who are protesting I would make sure I gave them this choice:   You either go to college or we afford our new energy bill.  Or if we have no energy, you can live out in the back yard in a tent without any heat whatsoever since we can’t afford to heat your bedrooms any longer. We are shutting off your heating vents you dummies!

Have a nice winter kids or move somewhere else!

Why send these kids to college?  What do they learn other than communism or socialism.  They come out of these universities dumber than dirt. They can’t even name the Vice President of the US for one thing. They may know who the president is, but no one else and they never know anything about the constitution unless sent to a private school.

At least 32 plants are on the chopping block now and another 36 may have to shut down because of new EPA air pollution rules. These plants supply energy for 22 million households.

According to the AP:

The fallout will be most acute for the towns where power plant smokestacks long have cast a shadow. Tax revenues and jobs will be lost, and investments in new power plants and pollution controls probably will raise electric bills.

The survey, based on interviews with 55 power plant operators and on the Environmental Protection Agency’s own prediction of power plant retirements, rebuts claims by critics of the regulations and some electric power producers.

They have predicted the EPA rules will kill coal as a power source and force blackouts, basing their argument on estimates from energy analysts, congressional offices, government regulators, unions and interest groups. Many of those studies inflate the number of plants retiring by counting those shutting down for reasons other than the two EPA rules.

At the above site you can read the list of coal plants to be shut down in 2012.

This might seem like a really dumb question, but has anyone in the EPA had a “thought” about how the people in these areas will get their electricity since there are no alternatives in place?   Just asking.

Need anything further be said??????????

The economy is bad enough without this added burden on folks who are barely able to make their mortgage payments and buy groceries.

Once again the Dictator in Chief  “helps” out the middle class.  And if you still fall for that one, I’ve got a stick to poke you in the eye with that will improve your eyesight.Hee hee, this feels better than looking at Lisa Jackson.

      I’m glad you found your way to my blog. Thanks for the compliment.
      I am a grandma too and I know a lot of people just don’t want to believe what is happening to our country.
      Sometimes I think it’s we older people who see it more than some other age groups because we’ve always lived in freedom and have been anti-communist and fought communism.

      I know how you feel. I was brought up that way too, to love our country, our flag and everything American. I recall all the parades we went to as a child and those I was in myself.

      It truly is a sad state of affairs when we see all that was good crumbling about us.

      Thank you so much for coming by and I hope you continue to do so.

      Good comment. You are sure right; lots of people won’t listen to any of this. Maybe they were not listening when Obama himself giggled at the prospect that the cost of electricity would “necessarily skyrocket”. Even a liar occasionally utters the truth. It looks like we are all on the menu, or as many sheep as will follow this policy of deconstruction. They called Obama’s opponents deniers, but the real deniers are their willing victims who will not say a word. I don’t waste time on the ones who deny it. And I think every day there are more of those who do get it. We cannot afford another 4 years of demolition.(…deconstruction).

      I agree. The so-called ‘institutes of higher learning’ have become nothing more than Communist indoctrination centers.

      As Joseph Stalin said- – “Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.”

      Well,we all know what hands/group controls public education. The Marxist/ Communist/Liberals!

      And we all know whom the effort is aimed at.The American People and our Republic.

      The “effect” is to undermine the strength of the America by turning out little uneducated Communist type Robots!

      Stalin also said- – “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”

      One can look around them and see for themselves that this is exactly what is happening right now!

        Excellent summary and quotes. They are spot on.

        The sad part is that it happened on our watch. Shithead Carter started the Dept of Education which then began dictating to the states what the ciriculum would be. Since then it has been a downhill slide.

        Now they don’t even teach the kids American history anymore. How they heck does a child learn that America is an exceptional nation with proud traditions and benevolence.

        Instead they teach that socialism is good and capitalism is bad but nobody knows why.

    Pepp & all, (great post)
    Obama’s administration of loons declared war on energy. We need “scrubbers” on Lisa Jackson and Obama’s whole administration. We do not get much help from Congress on it. They are interested in tidily winks and having a hearing or two to basically play politics with the issue. Their grandstanding is not the answer. Some of our ‘fearless leaders’ would rather have a political issue than to correct the problem, which in this case is sheer government tyranny.

    I’m overwhelmed by all this “help” Obama is giving us. Want to help somebody; first get off their back, and then dislodge your foot from their neck. And it would help immensely to stop trying to play god like Barbara Boxer posits. (that stick in the eye does make the point)

      Hawk, got me. Scrubbers now let me see.

      There used to be something called impeachment that was a mysterious mechanism to get rid of just this kind of refuse. Designers thought it sufficient to handle our needs. But it generally was only used on one piece of debris at a time, and that was rare. There are probably some old timers around who know and understand how the process works, or should work. They haven’t used it in a long time. Now and then they talk about using it but that’s pretty much the extent of it. They fired “Ol’ Bess” up for a little test run over a decade ago, but shut it down half way through the cycle. I suppose for fear of overloading it. The modern use of it would demand multiple runs simultaneously and I don’t know if, as it sits, it could handle that much strain – or if it was even designed with that in mind. I figure it was more for the random occasional elimination of an individual sludge buildup in the “system”(and I use the term loosely), to keep the entire system running smoothly. (if necessary)

      But you are right that our whole, ever-growing system has been compromised by the excesses buildup so much that you cannot see where one part starts and another ends. Surgical removal is looking harder every day it runs. It got so gunked up that its hard to determine one source, or one source from other sources. Maybe the entire thing just needs purged and start from scratch. One thing for sure, the integrity and the efficiency of this Beast of a system is been greatly diminished. You know, it is not like you go out and make a new one every time the system falls under its own strain. It hasn’t been rebuilt from the ground up though in long time.

      To make matters even worse, as you know, there is a large team in the chain of operation that seems to be diverting even its burdened resources over to another larger apparatus, which seems to reduce the integrity any more. So it’s running at full bore but all it seems to be doing is creating more sludge in the system. Being it was a one of a kind when it was conceived there are no salvageable parts to pull from elsewhere.. Now we just have to determine IF there is a consensus for the huge flush and purging that is required to run it into the future? I wish I knew how that effort was going and what the chances are?

      In America, if we had a very valuable and important thing like that being mothballed when we need it the most, wouldn’t they be working on it trying to fix it? You’d think.
      Funny some prefer a self-inflicted “ice age” to putting the effort into restore it.

Dakota down where oil drilling has their economy booming and unemployment the lowest in the country, he gave Brazil $2B of our tax dollars to drill for oil for us, he gave over $500M of our tax dollars to a green company going bankrupt and now he is going hard and heavy at closing down as many coal plants as possible…jezzz! It never ends on what this communist does to make us less energy dependent and keep unemployment as high as possible.

      He’s got loopholes built into the new hard core bill the Congress and Senate passed though. He is waiting for 6 mos to put these new sanctions on while he “has a study done” to see how these sanctions affect the world’s oil supply. Then after that he has another loop hole (which escapes me at the moment, darned those senior moments) so for a whole year he can get by without putting those sanctions on Iran.

    Pep, as you know I have been the general manager of an electric utility, the operations manager of another electric utility, and the plant manager of a power plant. Speaking from this background (and using data from my friends who are still in the electric power industry), here is what I see is happening:

    1. The LARGE private power utilities (such as ENTERGY and Consolidated Edison of NY) are paying “lip service” to the EPA and playing a delaying game until the November elections.

    2. The small public power utilities (such as MEAM and various municipal utilities) are so far down on the “food chain” that they can get away with doing nothing. Again, they are waiting for the November 2012 elections.

    3. The large public power utilities (such as TVA) are actually starting to obey the EPA. But it is taking them a long time to fully implement all the EPA requirements.

    The key to all of this is the November 2012 elections. If O’Vomit loses big, many of these EPA requirements will just go away.
