I will try this again: Obama and his EPA with help form the Dept. of Interior have virtually shut down the coal industry which is 90% cleaner than 30 years ago. Coal produces 52% of our electricity at 4 cents per kw. The renewables cost 22 cents per kw. What does this do to the poor and those on a fixed income? Well naturally the taxpayer; energy will be taken over by the federal government. We know this admin too well. There stripes or lack of are apparent. Marxism 101. BTW all those wonderful ads we see with the coughing baby are paid by the Chesapeake Energy consortium, a natural gas company. I suppose their lobbyists are forking over the big bucks.

I guess that explains why as many as 6 coal fired electrical plants in Pennsylvania are shutting down due to new enviromental regs. I guess that the attack on coal generated electricity is just a fabrication. I guess that the o's promise to make energy prices "necessarily skyrocket" was a cut and paste video.

Riiiiiiiiggghhttttt.

Destroying capitalism for no apparent reason other than the attainment of power. Fairness means the destruction of capitalism. After that they have no plan.

President Obama's former green jobs czar and communist Van Jones is now painting conservatives who believe the EPA is out of control as wanting to kill children for jobs. Although it is true runway EPA regulations stifle job growth and are burdening the economy, by conservatives believing those regulations should be loosened or eliminated by no means they want to kill kids in the process.


But of course, we couldn't get through a Van Jones speech without some form of hypocrisy. Jones gave the speech above in power guzzling New...
