Even I have figured out the basic economics of how the world goes around. It is beyond comprehension that these progressive expert control freaks are convinced they know what and how to make the world run according to their wishes. When the millions of people every day have to make decisions on how they are to live life, the govt. thinks they can control all those decisions for us by their structured socially engineered, socially justified utopia that out of fairness has to be continually funded by a never ending spigot of the 53%'s money. Just give them four more years to get it done but besides always more of our money, it has to include we get out of the way or sit in the back and quit talking except to say thank you.

To celebrate “earth day” this year, I decided that I would do what the Obama administration just hasn’t been able to figure out: I would stimulate the economy by the conscious expansion of my carbon footprint.

So I ran the air conditioning for a while in my house.

I also turned all the lights on in the house. Well, actually, I just didn’t turn off the lights my kids turned on. Through this process of reverse attrition, at one point, all the lights in the house eventually were on.

I call this Ransom’s Law: The amount of lights...
