EPA trying to bankrupt us and the coal industry.

The President does not care about American jobs and American Industry. I am convinced he only cares about 'remaking America in his own image' and part of that is forcing change, like bankrupting us and anyone who uses coal.

This is from The Daily Caller:
"President Barack Obama is ignoring heated concerns from within his own administration that new Environmental Protection Agency coal industry regulations will be economically devastating.
The EPA is plowing forward with new Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) mandates. The regulations would force coal energy plants to install giant scrubber-like materials inside smokestacks to capture and cleanse carbon particles before their atmospheric release.
The upgrade cost would fall on company employees and coal miners in the form of layoffs, as well as on businesses, which could expect to pay more for energy.
In a lengthy letter to EPA Director Lisa Jackson, Obama’s Small Business Administration advocacy office wrote the EPA “may have significantly understated” the economic “burden this rulemaking would impose on small entities.”"

The article is two pages long and is very good, and is very scarey.

I just hope BHO is a one term president!

Funny how it doesn't mention when the MACT rules were signed or the fact that Obama has halted the boiler one but I believe it would be the Congress that would have to overturn the rule. http://yosemite.epa.gov/r10/airpage.nsf ... enDocument

Exactly why we need Republicans to take over the Senate.

somebody has a lot of time to stick up for the commie....

WASHINGTON -- Just when liberals thought it was safe to start identifying themselves as such, an acclaimed, veteran psychiatrist is making the case that the ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder.

"Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded," says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness." "Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave."

While political activists on the other side of the spectrum have made similar observations, Rossiter boasts professional credentials and a life virtually free of activism and links to "the vast right-wing conspiracy."

For more than 35 years he has diagnosed and treated more than 1,500 patients as a board-certified clinical psychiatrist and examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases as a board-certified forensic psychiatrist. He received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago.

"A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity -- as liberals do," he says. "A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population -- as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nation's citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state -- as liberals do."

Finally someone in a profession that purports to understand human nature steps up to the plate.

It is beyond me why those who govern our lives need no qualifications whatever in understanding basic human nature except in its basest form; something our great writers understood centuries ago. They go on in a happy fantasy that they can ignore the law that says you have to "sing for your supper" in one way or another. The way they have fixed on is to sacrifice humanity itself.

It is much better to attack what he says rather than what other sufferers of Liberal madness have to say about him.

From that article a description of Obama.

he is a nuanced, multi-faceted thinker who can see things from several different perspectives simultaneously. And he isn’t preaching fear, either.

Now who is crazy?

From your top link Sam, at the bottom. You can apologize later.

Thanks for the link. It's a whole web site full of wackos. I think they are trying to get me.

Michael Savage has been saying the same thing for years and has a book by the title "Liberalism is a mental disorder". Indeed, systematic cultural self-deprecation is not a survival skill.

Your a sly devil Sam implying that it's my comprehension.

By the way, I do agree that many of the personality traits they label as conservative are true; it is the conclusions they leap to that reveal their own lack of logic and stability, but what can you expect from a site run by nut cases for nut cases.
