Here is a link to my Congressman's recent column in a number of Kansas newspapers. He is obviously a Republican and one of the new ones who tends to be a bit Tea Party like. Anyway in this piece he shows what the EPA and our President who promised to destroy the coal companies are doing lately to destroy all kinds of jobs and probably cause power blackouts by next summer. The situation worsens and who knows how bad it will become before we get rid of that man and his female servant in the EPA?

The newspapers here had several articles a few months ago about possible rolling blackouts this winter (after January 1) due to something the EPA was doing.

We had them last winter during an unusually harsh cold spell, but they were talking about them being routine starting next year.

By the time we manage to get rid of that Jackson woman we will all be suffering from astrological prices on electricity and will be suffering through rolling blackouts. Between her and her group they keep coming up with regulations aimed at killing the coal industry as Obama wanted since he couldn't get the Congress to do it with Cap and Trade. They don't care at all about the welfare of the nation as long as they can punish us for whatever it is they are after.

Just what Lisa Jackson and Barach Obama want to happen.

Wow, you are saying people are trying to do away with this woman?

That's a very bold claim, I hope you have something to back up a claim like that.

Plus, what are "astrological prices on electricity"? Can your power be a Taurus now?

Has there ever been a president as lawless as this one? As radical as this one?

The regulations passed on to us could be stopped by Congress except for what the Senate could stop.

Mr. Huelskamp mentions in that link that the House had killed the EPA's desire to tax hell out of farmers from dust raised while they are farming, driving on secondary roads, moving their cattle and other animals, etc. She tried but the Congress hit her in the chops. I think they should take care of the use of coal which makes about 50% of our electric power, but the Senate will be in the way of that.

Maybe none of the others had the EPA to do their dirty work for them. We have to have the Congress or the courts put some controls in front of them. Yes, he is very radical and lawless but he has to have the help of people like Lisa Jackson and others like her to be so bad.
