Federal carbon rule hearing in Atlanta attracts crowds of supporters, opponents

Excerpt from the definition of "eco-fascist" in the Urban Dictionary:

"A person who uses the unsubstantiated beliefs and sentiments of environmentalism to impose their political will onto the scientifically illiterate public. . . Usually at the public's detriment. . . They use the pretense of being some kind of environmental savior to justify their economically destructive actions. . ."

When power bills skyrocket as a result of this stupidity, do NOT increase welfare payments to make up for the higher power bills of the moochers and parasites.

EPA says cutting coal use might save lives

Article excerpt: "Graham said that the poor, the young and the old are disproportionately affected by ozone and other kinds of air pollution. African Americans have a high rate of asthma, he added."

That reminded me of a popular humor magazine that many years ago parodied an imaginary typical liberal newspaper with several articles about one disaster or another, each containing the line "and the poor and minorities were hardest hit."

Today's editorial cartoon

@cyou299:

OK, I will explain it to you in simple language.

The cartoon says that Congress hallucinates impeachment.

Boehner is the republican speaker of the house of representatives and he says that republicans in the House do not plan to pursue impeachment.

Just because Obama is a liar does not mean that Boehner is, too.

Wrong. Exalted Cyclops and democrat senate majority leader Robert Byrd immediately comes to mind.

Today's editorial cartoon

The cartoon shows a newspaper with a headline saying Congress "hallucinates impeachment."

That is a flat-out lie.

Speaker John Boehner quote:

"This whole talk about impeachment is coming from the president's own staff and coming from Democrats on Capitol Hill. We have no plans to impeach the president. We have no future plans."

US fuming over Israeli criticism of Kerry

Article excerpt: "In trying to implement the cease-fire over the weekend, 'U.S. Secretary of State of State John Kerry ruined everything,' wrote columnist Ari Shavit in Monday's Haaretz, Israel's leading liberal newspaper."

The full article of the Israeli newspaper is only available to its subscribers, but an excerpt from it is linked below.

The gist of it appears to be that Kerry's glory-hounding in trying to insert himself into the process has been horribly counterproductive and made matters worse.

How could that possibly be? After all, every time the Obama administration involves itself in something, it only serves to make things better, right?

"US fuming over Israeli criticism of Kerry"

No!

As stated in the first line of the article, it is the Obama administration that is "fuming", not the American public.

The Obama administration is not the same thing as the American public.

Not by a long shot. . .

What matters most is not the NUMBER of executive orders.

You can bet there will be unintended consequences of this.

Today's editorial cartoon

Excerpts from Boehner's letter linked below:

". . . President Barack Obama has declined to faithfully execute the laws of our country – ignoring some statutes completely, selectively enforcing others, and at times, creating laws of his own."

"Article II, Section III of the Constitution of the United States dictates that the president, as head of the Executive Branch of our government, 'shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed' even if the president does not agree with the purpose of that law."

"On one matter after another during his presidency, President Obama has circumvented the Congress through executive action, creating his own laws and excusing himself from executing statutes he is sworn to enforce. . ."

"I believe the House must act as an institution to defend the constitutional principles at stake and to protect our system of government. . ."

Liberals mock Boehner as a jester, a fool, for being concerned about Obama's abuses of the Constitution.

Stupid, stupid leftist loons. . .

@snarkydude:

Unlike her republican opponents, Michelle Nunn has raised most of her money from out of state, with concentrations of the donations coming from the liberal enclaves of New York, California, and Washington, DC.

Yet, she tries to pass herself off as a centrist!

Bullcrap, she is as liberal as they come. . .

Do you recall the NYC fundraiser for Michelle Nunn and a couple of other liberal democrat candidates for Senate, headlined by Michelle Obama?

At that NYC fundraiser, Michelle Obama said this:

"So it is critical that we elect Michelle Nunn, Alison Grimes, Natalie Tennant. It is critical that we get them to the Senate....it is critical, because we all know that it’s not enough to elect Barack Obama President if we don’t give him a Congress that will help him..."

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
