Ignorance may be costly

October 14, 2013

One wonders, sometimes, whether President Barack Obama and others in the White House pay any attention to their own administration’s energy forecasts....

You will pay dearly for posting the truth. Thanks to the Obamabot network, hundreds of people who do not live here and probably couldn't find Fulton County with a GPS and two maps will post various silliness attempting to defend the worst President in American history. Those of us who can put on our own shoes without reading polls or watching TV network "news" appreciate your posting the truth.

The Obama Administration ought to read a little more on the power industry. This Financial Times article details what those of us who work in the power industry already know: Natural gas prices are plummeting. If home heating prices increase this year, it is going to be more likely the cause will be from increased fees and taxes.

Since when has this or any other Authoritarian Regime cared about the people? We are only a means to their goal of complete control.

Which is it? Are natural gas prices rising, like the corporate idiot says, or dropping like xsubsquid?

Regardless, burning coal adds 30% to U.S. carbon emissions. It was in 2007 (yes, Bush was president) when the Supreme Court ruled that the EPA had to crack down on carbon pollution, citing the Clean Air Act. It is not some vendetta by Obama against coal.

Seriously, Mrs. Beck. Would you guys please write the editorials? Yours make sense.

A National Grid rep was on TV recently saying that natural gas users would see a decrease in cost this year. Jeers to the author of this editorial. I suggest that the LH editorial board all buy coal stoves to heat their homes. Then tell us about coal. Also were can I get a Joe Munchkin (D-WV) bumper sticker?

I would like to see an editorial about life after the presidency. The Clinton Global Initiative and Carter's involvement with Habitat for Humanity and many other humanitarian issues are noteworthy. Of course, some choose to stay on the ranch and chop wood or ride around on horseback. That also is noteworthy.

What is it about facts that you don't like, TOT? Coal burning power plants are responsible for the acid rain that falls here in Fulton County. The Clean Air Act was passed in 1990. The Supreme Court ruled in 2007 that the EPA had to address carbon pollution. It's pretty simple, really.

HILLTOPPER: I can not blame you for not letting go of bashing a President that has been out of office for 5 years. Based on the performance of this President, I would change the subject at every turn also. Benghazi scandal, AP scandal, IRS scandal and now the ObamaCare debacle. This presidency makes me long for Jimmy Carter. Blind followers of this president refuse to look past their noses to see what is happening. Look at the NY Times story today about how Obama hid the problems about his ObamaCare last year until after the election. That is the NY Times reporting this, you know that right leaning Tea Party supporting conservative paper in NY. Hmmm Maybe it was Bush that wrote the software for Obamacare. Probably was. Hey anyone know where our president was in the 7 hours that our Ambassador and three others were being murdered in Libya? Just wondering.

I'd like to just sit here and call people names all day but it likely will not help. If it did the progressives would be a lot more successful at pushing their agenda. Fat is we have to go after what ails us today and that is about everything that Obama and his band of leftist takeover specialists have been doing for the past 5 years. After this disastrous healthcare roll out, I hope that the left keeps to their guns(?) and does not put off the enrollment now... it is pandemonium!

Fedup: The facts about EX-PRESIDENTS speak for themselves. And, as far as where Obama was during the raid on Benghazi, I'll answer that with this question. Where was Bush when 4371 Americans were killed in Iraq during his watch, 2977 died at the WTC on 9/11/01, and when the Stock Market crashed in 2007? Those who refuse to blame Bush should know that on Mar. 20, 2013 Bush said, "After my presidency I have come to the belief that the Iraq War, although well intentioned, was unnecessary and too costly to justify. I deeply apologize to the American people and to our soldiers and veterans in particular for engaging them in such a conflict. I may have made a mistake - but I think all Americans know that I pride myself on being able to admit my failures."

Like I said HILLTOPPER, I cant blame you for living in the past. Didn't think you could answer it directly. You use the same playbook that every elitist liberal uses. Deflect and demonize but never answer when the answer is bad. Oh well, you didn't surprise me - Keep living in the past. Tell me, do you still wear a leisure suit? Of course you will answer that question with a question, like most libs do!

Um... Hilltopper... I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that Bush quote you printed is from the Daily Currant. It's like the Onion. It's a satire website. We all know that Bush will never admit to the debacle that was Iraq.

HILLTOPPER: I believed you. I read the same thing in Mad Magazine and The Weekly World News while I was checking out at Walmart the other day. I had a lot of time since the EBT card system went down with the person checking out in front of me and he couldn't raise anyone on his IPHONE!

The past 5 years of ignorance will be costly for generations... I am totally amazed that anyone still believes! It is like a 16 year old that is waiting for Santa... one day the realization will sink in!
