Want to cut back on energy use? Don’t create some 50 million (12 million illegals and their immediate family members) new Americans through amnesty.
When historians will be looking back for the one single moment when everything changed, the moment when all these years of planning was finally implemented in instituting his master plan, this will be the moment when Obama took control of the power plants that they will single out was the ploy that started it all. The same sort of moments when the Communist mental case started a fire in the Reichstag that had Hitler utilize it to gain full dictatorial power, and it’s like in Terminator 3, the moment when Skynet goes on line. Different scenarios, same history.

Yup. No dinner, no flowers, no kiss and no lube. They plan to use “ridicule” against “deniers”. Bring it on ridiculers. I can hardly wait. Taking a lesson from the ROTUS, “get in their face”.
Amen to that Brother.
Amazed he can find time between vacations to make this announcement.
Your assessment is 80 years too late.
Federal regulations are illegal, period.
Until FDR staged a coup.
The Congress is as useless as the Supreme Court.
Obama be da man.
