EPA

This holiday is a dichotomy for me. While I plan to celebrate the American ideal, I must also mourn it’s loss by erosion and atrophy. The fact is that too many Americans have abandoned their love of liberty. They either lack the courage to defend it, or know not what they’ve lost and feebly attempt to disguise their apathy or ignorance with claims of overwork and family obligations.

“I just don’t have time.” “We can’t change anything anyway.” or “I voted! What else can I do?”

While somewhat understandable due to the ‘Hate America First’ crowd populating our higher education system, this situation is absolutely unacceptable.

Pay attention, please!

What could possibly be more important than the world you leave to the family you claim to be working for?

This country was founded with the demand that we citizens hold the government accountable and as such it’s our solemn duty to be vigilant and educate ourselves; especially to question every carrot some politician offers for a block of votes.

Part of me wishes the deniers would just be truthful and admit to their selfish apathetic attitude but even then I’ve had enough of their disregard for the outright treason going on in the high halls of our government.

We should be lighting the streets of Washington DC with torches and pitchforks, pushing carts with caldrons of tar and bags of feathers for every Progressive we can lay our hands on!

Instead, most of the hapless, uneducated, indoctrinated sheeple will celebrate their faux freedoms with government approved USDA beef, cooked with EPA tested charcoal and FDA stamped BBQ sauce served on a table illuminated with gov’t mandated, mercury filled light bulbs that require a permit for disposal, powered with electricity delivered through “smart” meters that will soon be limiting the amount of power they are allowed to consume and the happy serfs will never give a moment’s thought to any of it.

“Thank you, Government for the food we are about to receive…” They may as well say.

Need a loaf of FDA approved bread and a twelve pack of pasteurized processed beer to help numb the senses to your lack of liberty? Go right ahead! You’re free to find the nearest convenience store run by immigrants who receive a tax break and subsidy but if you plan on driving that car, you’d better strap on a seat belt for your own safety. We wouldn’t want you killing yourself in an accident making you unable to pay back the insurance companies who apparently rule our lives because we’re too stoopid and incapable to do so ourselves. Not to mention, if a nice helpful revenue assessor officer of the law decides you’ve had one beer too many because the county and state need to fund a few ongoing, never-ending money pits downtown/highway/school beautification or government vote buying entitlement projects (Hey! This one’s got a job!). You’ll likely be forced to give some specimen in a twisted, technological violation of the Fifth or Fourth amendments to be used as evidence against you in a modern-day kangaroo court. (Ever hear of a No Refusal Law?)

Ah Freedom: Wonder what that felt like. You know, I think I once actually thought we were free, and slowly but surely I realized the illusion of liberty was the curtain of OZ and just like the tale, we aren’t supposed to peel that curtain back. Unfortunately, unlike Dorothy with her traveling band of truth seekers, the man behind the curtain isn’t a cute, cuddly, benevolent old man who resembles our kindly uncle. Behind the curtain, is the great and devouring leviathan, its hour come round at last, now slouching towards Bethlehem to be born. (Apologies to Yeats.)

Whatever hides beyond the veil you can be assured it has no designs for your safety or security except as a ruse to steal more of your freedoms.

Remember the phrase: “It’s for the children.”? Well guess what, we are “the children”. Get used to it. Your body is no longer your property, let alone your land, your vehicle or your actual children. The state now lays claim to them all in more ways I care to count. It takes a village alright. A village of idiots to swallow the lies we’re continually asked to believe.

Enjoy your Fourth of July, comrades.

The “transformation” is almost complete.

Note: If this seems unreasonable to you, then I emplore you to get off your ass and DO SOMETHING about it. Donate your time and money to conservative candidates, then STAY involved. We will not turn it around in one election any more than it took one election to get us here. It’s past time to be what the founders intended us to be: Educated, Informed and Involved.

I don’t know. But I’m curious.

A few days ago, I received an email announcing what should be a booster shot for our children in math and science education. The program is called “Connect a Million Minds” (CAMM).

Here is an excerpt from CAMM website:

On November 17 at 12pm ET, join host former Vice President Al Gore, inventor Dean Kamen, astronaut Sally Ride and young people from around the world for an interactive discussion exploring youth attitudes toward math and science education.

Immediately after seeing Al Gore’s name, my inner conspiracy theorist surfaced and asked a few questions:

Is Al Gore the best they could do for a moderator? Really?

Is this another Global Warming / Climate Change indoctrination attempt?

If not, why front load the panel with known Climate Change theorists Kaman and Gore?

I don’t want to get overly excited about this. I actually like the idea of pushing kids to excellence in any field of endeavor, especially math, science and technology.

My concern is the hijacking of what could be a good program by the wacko environ-mentalists who could use the opportunity to push an an agenda that has been proven to be at best flawed science and at worst outright lies. Is that what we want our children to learn? If the math doesn’t fit the hypothesis, make up the numbers that will support your theory?

I’ll stop before I go too far here, I’m not pointing the finger of accusation just yet. I’m merely asking for feedback from teachers.

Are you aware of the program?

Is your school participating?

What are your thoughts?

Bueller? Bueller?

and those victims would be:

Jobs, in Port Arthur, Texas.

According to a report in the Houston Chronicle, Obama’s EPA has decided:

A proposed pipeline that would ferry Canadian crude oil to Texas refineries has run afoul of the recharged federal push to protect minorities and the poor from an overburden of pollution.

More like protecting them from the overburden of a job.

As noted in the same article, Port Arthur has one of the highest unemployment rates in Texas despite the dense allotment of refineries and chemical plants located in the area.

As to the EPA decision I have to speculate the Port Arthur City Council must not have been “consulted” when the powers that be made their decision. Then again, maybe they were, those council members might have asked for a little too many carbon credits or petroleum perks for the regime’s sensibilities. Again, I’m just speculating here though. I’m sure the EPA and the city truly have the *cough* best *hack* interest *barf* of all those minority residents at heart.

I can see how not being able to feed your family without a government handout is much better than earning a decent wage and providing for your own. A sense of pride and self worth is always a negative thing when compared to the usefulness of a dependent, especially when attempting to sell some new government run entitlement.

Port Arthur and Jefferson County in general have been a Democrat stronghold in Texas for years. Why the Obama regime would chose to punish a town with a large minority population just because of their race is beyond the computing ability of this robot. It surely can’t be because of their voting record.

I think we are about to see first-hand how the term “Environmental Justice” will become another form of discrimination, just another package with a different name.

I also think it’s fair to point out that as much as Obama and his cronies point the racial finger at the TEA Party with no evidence to back up their accusations, this is a true case of admitted discrimination against his own race. Oh, but wait, maybe it’s his white half that he will attempt to blame this one on.

Then again, Socialism knows no race except in the best ways to be derisive and divisive to stir the petty differences as this president does. To share the wealth in this man’s case means to spread the misery. It’s truly a shame that it’s so easy to do with a complicit Congress.

My buddy The CL over at the Classic Liberal has a great post documenting the plight of some American farmers defending themselves against government raids. Another friend sent me an email that referenced one of the very same sites CL does. What a coincidence eh?
That site is the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund.

Funny thing is, the farm subsidies the government has been handing out over the years has caused another problem of helping to put smaller farms out of business while paying money to people who aren’t even farmers. Here we go again with another problem caused by big government. I don’t have to wonder what their answer will be this time. More government, I’m sure.

Befrore you jump on me for using JCM’s viodeo, I’m aware that Mr. Mellencamp has a few problems of his own in the mid-west as far as government subsidies go. I just like the song.

Subsidies are just like any other government program, it starts off sold with the best of intentions, only to become the enemy of those it was meant to help.
