How insane are we to put an unelected department in the position to damage our economy and tax business and citizens without us having a say!!

Taxation without representation! No, that slogan just doesn’t quite make it these days.

This is very serious! According NPR, this gives Obama to act WITHOUT CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL to stop "greenhouse gas" emissions.

Everyone needs to tune into Mark Levin today....I'm sure he will explain the seriousness of this looming unconstitutional tyrrany headed our way.! WE have to impeach this guy somehow before he destroys us!

“There may be a few real scientists at the agency cringing at this alchemy approach to “clean air.”

Prob’ly very few real science types. Mostly degreed bureaucrats with long enviro-biased resumes. EPA has been a lawyer (lawyers and lawyers of lawyers) agency ever since Nixon appointed Ruckelshaus, a lawyer, its first director.

If all Democrats would just stop breathing, the “problem” would be solved!

Now that's the best idea I've heard today!

I guess they missed the fact that Global Warming is a hoax, which we have thought all along, but now have emails to prove it.

First snow in Sacramento in 30 years, early this morning.

CO2 is the building block of life, for Pete’s sake!

I urge all FReepers to download the proof of this epic fraud from wikileaks.org HERE so that as many people as possible have it stored on their hard drives.

ROFL! I'll bet they LOVE the internet (it's no wonder they're trying to shut it down.) But I've got news for 'em - they will FAIL!

I’ve been using an asthma inhaler for a long time, before they switched to the stupid HFA, and I’m still alive.

Yep; but only by your own perseverance. Have you seen this yet? The National Campaign to Save CFC Asthma Inhalers has gathered lots of info on the pure lack of efficacy of the HFA compounded albuterol verses the CFC compounded. Good luck, FRiend.

“Industry lawyers say if the EPA finalizes its auto emissions rule by March 31 as expected, regulation of the greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide would automatically start 60 days later at the end of May. “

“Without any cost analyses of new greenhouse gas regulations, it’s difficult to estimate what the actual impact could be on the economy. Dan Riedinger, a spokesman for the utility industry group Edison Electric Institute, pointed to cost predictions for federal legislation. Estimates vary between $100 a year to $1,000 a year extra for families, and such legislation is specially designed to moderate costs.

“The only certainty is that EPA regulation would be far more expensive than Congressional-designed legislation,” Riedinger said.

"The idea that CO2 and methane are “pollution” is patently absurd, but par for the course for 0 and his merry band."

They're the very building blocks of life!

I wonder how long before they will be regulating how much CO2 a individual can contribute. How will they measure? Will there be fines involved? will the funds be sent to the Earth Gods at the UN?

What is wrong with these idiots? Even grade schoolers know that trees and plant life can’t live without it. Are they trying to kill off all plant life?

Shouldn’t they have to prove in court, that the current levels of CO2 are endangering humans, in order to take control of it?

“EPA chief: ‘Hacked emails’ change nothing...”

You think they care about you or court? It is a religion.

You are simply not free from their’s.

The EPA chief is a blooming idiot. Nobama has appointed many marxists. Why the hell did 53% of people vote for these morons? Did you all hate the United States?

“Why the hell did 53% of people vote for these morons? Did you all hate the United States?”

Disclaimer: I did NOT vote for 0!

I think the 2008 election will be studied for a long time.

0 and crew did a nice job of appearing fairly centrist. He spoke in platitudes, and sure didn’t lay out any of the crazier things he had planned up front. He had a fawning press at his feet, who provided a constant barrage of propaganda for $0.00.

Don’t forget (as apparently almost everyone has) that 0 didn’t take public campaign financing and spent around $1 billion on the Presidency. He outspent McCain something like 3 to 1.

Finally, there was something of a perfect storm. I guess for the “average person” the contrast between the constant MSM bashing of Bush versus the adoration of 0 had an effect. Brainwashed into hating Bush and by extension everything Republican, what was the alternative besides 0? Lack of good public education factored in, since many were simply not equipped intellectually to make a rational decision, or be curious about the “real 0”. As a final nail, there was the “fiscal crisis”, IMO manufactured by the Dems yet adroitly laid at the feet of Bush and the Republicans.

Now, here we are, gripped by Great Depression 2 and girding ourselves for catastrophe. God save America!

If someone had published the whole thing as a novel, the critics would have called the plot too far-fetched to be real.

It snowed a few miles to the NE yesterday, and there was a light snow yesterday right before noon in the western part of town.

21 degrees here this morning and in the teens in upper wino country.
