Yep, I imagine there’s quite a line.

I can’t add a smiley face to the end of that...I’m too angry.

What is trying to do; outdo the Empire. Hope he keeps on.

He has to get the wrong person angry pretty soon to begin impeachment.

the word progressive was used to push prohibition but they changed their name to liberals and yet progressive means to move forward and look what they have done.
Ruin the military, certainly with out a doubt ruin the family, marriage tradition, the economy.

Hardly a good progress is it.

I seem to have been absent that day when in civics class they said that the pres__ent( no id ) was inchagre of power plants .
Either that , or he has a different Constitution that he swore and oath and allegiance to.

The last I knew :
“Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137,(1803) “The Constitution of these United States is the supreme law of the land.
Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution is null and void of law.”

and: “A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference.” Thomas Jefferson

Opps , Sorry , I guess I was reading from the wrong Constitution :

Rules for Radicals
by Saul Alinsky
Vintage; Reissue edition (October 23, 1989)
1. “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
8. “Keep the pressure on.
9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.
10. “Major premise for tactics is development of operations that will maintain constant pressure upon the opposition.

Apparently the Republicrat Party is going to stand idly by and watch the nation sink like the Titanic.

Why not? They all profit from it-- when everything is forbidden or regulated, the regulators and lawmakers get a lot of attention and a lot of money from supplicants asking to get the boot off their necks (or to have it applied to their competition).

From their perspective it's a win-win situation-- they get their egos stroked and wallets stuffed while their contributors get a good deal.

The fact that the rest of us are reduced to serfs earning Third World wages bothers them not one bit-- after all, as Rubio's aide put it, we're not quite up to snuff.

The only thing that will fix this is a gallows on the Mall long enough to stretch 535 necks.

Oh Lord, please make it pay-per-view.

I heard something creepy on the radio today. It appears that the emperor already did an announce on the internet - behind his words was spooky music that had a very subliminal feel to it. So, pump up the propaganda and the subliminal messages. He really thinks we will all fall for his bullcrap. I’m not paying a dime to the carbon brokers who are all criminals. Al Gore will never have enough money so after the carbon robbery, he will want us to buy oxygen from him and his ilk. Obama is on the carbon exchange, so are the Hitlerys and probably the Bush gang.

I don’t need to use a/c. If swimming pools aren’t outlawed, I’ll go swimming more often. Once they get started, they will outlaw everything so we are boxed in even if we have solid alternate plans. They are tracking all purchases. They can outlaw whatever they want. Treating a great people like dog crap is what Washington DC stands for and that includes Jeb Bush and his talk about fertile, loving, great working Mexicans. We are not dog crap under Jeb Bush’s shoe but he talks as if we all are.

Section 8 residents better look out. If they are running their air conditioner or heat and sitting on their arses watching their free cable tv, they might face a major backlash. Rewarding excellence is dead. Slugs are easier to control but it’s not hard to determine who’s section 8 and who isn’t, just sayin’.

“This should quadruple our electric bills.”

At the very least.

Beyond that, I see a typical leftest scenario unfolding.

It’s the one where they create a problem which has to be solved (by the ever-caring dems, of course) with subsidies to the poor to cover the increase in their bills.

One of these days he’s going to pull some of this, and Democrats are going to join the Republicans to put him in a lock box. This is a core issue. If brown-outs come along because this nit-wit played God, there’ll be hell to pay.

He may be able to pull stuff that doesn’t hit folks at home and get away with it, but I don’t think he can cut off the power without folks coming unglued.

I hope he tries it. I hope it blows up in his face big-time.

I see comments that he can't do this (change regulations) by himself. They don't understand how it works: He is the head of every regulation agency under the executive branch. He tells the regulators to write rules he wants, and they do as he controls them - he is the boss. That is legal. Therefore, whatever he wants is going to happen, period.

I have upgraded to a more powerful solar panel and charger and the best rechargeable batteries made. I can last for many years and have light and fans. I've updated methods of cooking, including an oven that does everything an inside oven does and it works on small or a large propane tank. I got a bunch of small bottles for that and it's only used when I need an oven. I also have a stove that puts out high heat using not many twigs. That is the end all stove that will always work on any small amount of biomass. I have two other methods of cooking so I'm fine for years.

Hussein can't do much to me. In fact, I'm putting together container food growing so I'll have fresh food to add to the other food I have.

However, if I have to give up air conditioning when I sleep, Hussein is toast.

Your Airstream and boat will serve you well if it comes to that. I wish you the best.

The libs are soon about to see the results of their stupidity. This will effect everyone.

And the college students are about to wake up. Their health insurance, which is required by most universities and NOT covered by financial aid, has just gone up by as much as 1112%. I just got the notice from my daughter’s college today, and it clearly explained this was due to the “affordable care act.”

While I agree with your antipathy, even in the projects, utilities are expected to be paid by the occupants. Other than the occasional yearly assistance.

To be honest, expect the project occupants to be upset about this.

His Dad pushed the "New World Order". He passed the 'Patriot Act'. All of it BS! I am harmed. YOU are harmed. Department of HOMELAND Security is now a Cabinet post. WTF!?!

People are used to the term now but, in the day, the term "homeland" was communistic. Guess what? It still is.

Revolt is coming.

They are counting on that.

In fact, they are stoking it.

For the moment it begins, they will have the justification to bring down the iron fist to the applause of the people - who just want everything to go 'back to normal'.

Because in the misery - The MarxoFascists will name their enemies as the cause for it all.

You didn't really think all the billions of hollow point ammunition, tanks and APCs Obama's DHS is stockpiling was due to a great sale on those items, do you?

The dots are connected for anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear.

They have already named who they declare to be domestic terrorists.

Instigate misery while robbing the very people you intend to destroy - and a despot has everything he needs to initiate what every Leftist despot in history has done to their own people.

But first - one has to instigate revolt and bloodshed.

Once that happens - well, you cannot imagine what is going to result.
