Congress could dissolve or restrict the EPA in 2011, paving the way for a better 2012.

Clearly what the economy needs now is higher energy costs. That’ll sure help the job situation.

Nope. And I don't expect we will ever see a tipping point. This is a kinder, gentler fascism.

While I never expect to see cattle-cars and death camps in America, I am expecting a little engineered starvation, as in the Ukraine.
