H.R. 391 - Help Keep Breathing Legal
Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee has introduced H.R. 391 which will prevent the EPA from making it illegal to breathe, belch or fart. H.R. 391 must be supported and passed to keep Obama and the EPA from sticking another rusty knife into our backs.
Obama is in Copenhagen to sell America down the river in hopes of garnering some favor from the tree huggers. Sadly for him, the cap and trade legislation has proved to be a bit harder to pass than he originally expected. Even the gutless corrupt House and Senate have as yet refused to pass this legislation that will once and for all plunge a rusty dagger into the heart of American industry and agriculture. You see, it is not only the granola-munching tree huggers that are yearning for Cap and Trade, and draconian restrictions on economic development. No, no, my fellow Americans, it is not the environmentalist whackos that we must fear - beware of those rascally chinks across the pond. Fully one in five of all human beings on earth reside in China. The amount of pollution, smoke, toxins, fumes, emissions, and, yes, greenhouse gasses produced by the Communist Chinese dwarfs that of the United States.
They want nothing more than to further hobble the American economy with bone-headed fetters that will have no measurable effect on Global Warming, but will certainly institute rapid cooling of the American economy.
Which gets me back to my original point. Obama left the Nobel Prize ceremonies early to attend the Global Climate Circle Jerk in Copenhagen without the Cap and Trade legislation in his hand. Obama has already has told Congress that he will regulate greenhouse gases unless lawmakers deliver a cap-and-trade bill to his desk. The “endangerment” prerogatives also are the president’s bargaining chip in Copenhagen, where he plans on scoring his first diplomatic victory since his election night. The Supreme Court of the United States (see Massachusetts vs. EPA) has already weighed in on this and says Obama and his EPA can proceed to bulldoze the American economy.
In order to appease his comrades in Beijing, there is another plan Obama is about to pull out of his butt.
The Environmental Protection Agency, (EPA) is on the verge of moving to regulate so-called greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide. You have heard about carbon dioxide - right? That is what comes out of your nose when you exhale. Yep - the good old EPA, a government agency that has the ability to unilaterally, and with congressional or taxpayer approval, to regulate or completely ban emissions of carbon dioxide. If they so choose, the EPA can make you a criminal each time you exhale.
At the other end of the spectrum -literally - is methane gas. God forbid that you let loose a fart and doom the polar ice shelf to extinction. Regulation of carbon dioxide and methane by the EPA will essentially put Dairymen and Cattle Ranchers out of business. No more free government cheese for the crack-infested welfare moms either.
Think I'm joking?
Last week, two environmentalist groups petitioned the EPA to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act. Soon the EPA will have no choice. Once the Clean air act kicks in — and it will — the American economy is, not to put too fine a point on it, screwed. Taken to the extent mandated under the Clean Air Act, the EPA would probably have to order the shut-down of most industrial suppliers and users of conventional energy, in addition to most agricultural operations involving animals. No more eggs, butter, milk, meat, wool, etc. etc. etc.
