    Michigan's Lump of coal..

    The wife and I returned to an era of cereal box Christmases this year.  Times are tough, and sometimes you have to make do..

    Cereal Box Christmas - We packaged up socks (I know.. this is an old trick) Then we also packed up a 6 pack of the good toilet paper, and a few boxes of cereal the kids always go for.  Under the tree it looked like any other Christmas, and carefully saving the best for last we made it through without TOO much disappointment.  Also, 9 and 10 year olds can in fact have a great sense of humor as well.  My daughter, I believe still has saved somewhere  the 6pack of white Charmin;  She calls it "Mr. Whitey."  God love her. (BTW we actually turned this into a tradition)

    Well..  things are still a little better than they were then, but we are getting ready for the next round of thievery by our "servants" in Lansing and DC.

    Our resident meat puppet senator, Debbie Stabenow, voted with her partner in crime equally vapid Carl Levin to pass through a version of the health care "reform" which:

    1. Steals from some insurance plans to give to others
    2. Forces Insurers to accept high cost liabilities.
    3. Coerces the purchase of insurance by consumers
    4. Sets up mechanisms whereby abortion is covered
    5. Does not exclude Illegals from sapping our system

    Wow.. all that in one fell swoop. Liberty has met its match in these unrepentant Bolsheviks.  Top down control, government mandates, and strings attached to 20 percent of the economy.

    Add to this the purposeful ignoring of the CRU emails indicating fraud with regard to temperature data and timing and we have even more trouble brewing for Michigan.  What little manufacturing that is left here might just so easily pack up and move to another country if moving to another state.  Given the story of the Rogers City Power plant (be sure to read all the installments - heck of a chronicle):

    With Cap and Trade legislation largely considered dead-on-arrival in the Senate, the EPA means to enact similar, without a doubt, more stringent commands on coal plants.  It is not to be ignored that a spokesman for the Edison Electric Institute concluded, "The only certainty is that EPA regulation would be far more expensive than congressional-designed legislation."

    What does this mean?

    The most recent segment of the Jen's story points out what is going to become even worse now that the EPA has an Obama mandate to "necessarily bankrupt the coal industry" ..and raise power costs to unacceptable levels.

    Manufacturing uses electricity folks.  LOTS OF IT.  Raising cost on the fuel used to make it raises the cost to buy it.

    The strange thing that is going to happen however, is the EPA will be the beast to fight now, as they will be using the Obama mandate to dole out licenses to power providers and through the executive office controlling yet another segment of our economy.  Some would almost prefer the cap & trade as presented by the congress when they see what is going to happen here, but Levin and Stabenow, and all the other Jokers in Congress and the Senate, including too many of our own, with the passage of the health care legislation, have spent all the goodwill they can afford.  They will likely not pursue cap & trade.. for now.

    How our two senators can continue to work towards the destruction of our state is beyond understanding.  Simple placement of the blame on special interests or particular contributions cannot possibly explain such insanity.  The only reasonable answer that we can assume is the power sharing this administration has been brokering in its most "Chicago like" manner.

    Sadly, this Christmas, Michigan found itself with nothing so nourishing as a Gillman traditional box of cereal under the tree.   A lump of coal perhaps the most promising gift we can expect.

    I believe that any of the rules that the EPA enacts should be challenged. Of course I think that the EPA is unconstitutional in the first place.

    Apparently the president can create executive agencies via executive order? Ef you very much, Nixon.
