HDR 199: Blowing In The Wind??
ALOHA, ALL!! Ain’t this just swell: wind farms in the UK were paid a ton of money to not produce. Yep, that’s right! But it gets even more bizarre – looks like the wind farms were asked to stop producing because of high winds. Not joking. There was a hurricane in the area and apparently high winds might have caused the system to become overloaded. So let’s see….wind energy produced by those ugly space creature looking things is supposedly good, but we don’t want too much of it. Sure sounds high maintenance and stupid to me. I guess the only consolation here is that it proves there are eco-doofusses in other countries, not just the U.S. Wind farm paid £1.2 million to produce no electricity – Common American Journal BTW – hubby and I drove by a windmill farm on the North Shore of Oahu the other day. It was a typically breezy day, but not one fan was moving. Nada. Zero. Zilch. I sarcastically suggested they should install solar panels on the windmills so they’d start moving. Maybe more power could be produced by this windmill:
But Did You Hear About All The New Jobs?? 230,000 Employees | Green House Gas | Clean Air Act | The Daily Caller ”The Environmental Protection Agency has said new greenhouse gas regulations, as proposed, may be “absurd” in application and “impossible to administer” by its self-imposed 2016 deadline. But the agency is still asking for taxpayers to shoulder the burden of up to 230,000 new bureaucrats — at a cost of $21 billion — to attempt to implement the rules.” So you see? New jobs after all….that WE pay for with our taxes!!!!!!!
More Hot Air. Obama raising with Missouri stimulus beneficiary – Alexander Burns – POLITICO.com ”President Barack Obama will raise money in early October with a Missouri businessman whose company benefited from a $107 million federal tax credit to develop a wind power facility in his state.”
The Chicago Way. Chicago: Union Members Collect Millions in Tax $$ With Sweetheart Pension Deal ”Now this is the sort of corruption we are used to seeing in Illinois, eh? This week the Chicago Tribune and WGN TV has found up to 23 retired union operatives that are collecting millions in taxpayer dollars because they had pals in government tweak the state’s pensions laws to favor them.” Ah yes….and who else is from Chicago?????
Bubba Trying to Re-Write History. Bill Clinton, Home Wrecker – Investors.com ”He’s the one who originally pushed them to make those really dumb loans. And then he baited Wall Street to game the perverse system he created. Nobody put the American Dream of owning — and keeping — a home “under assault” more than he did.”
ICYMI: Census: US poverty rate swells to nearly 1 in 6 – Yahoo! News ”The ranks of America’s poor swelled to almost 1 in 6 people last year, reaching a new high as long-term unemployment left millions of Americans struggling and out of work. The number of uninsured edged up to 49.9 million, the biggest in more than two decades.” Hope & Change.
ROFL!!!! Watching Attack Watch . . . Do Nothing for the Past Nine Days. – By Jim Geraghty – The Campaign Spot – National Review Online ”The creators and managers of the Obama campaign web site “ATTACK WATCH” have not Tweeted since September 14, and the last “Attack File” was posted September 12. Perhaps they realized that they couldn’t top themselves after making Mark Steyn look sinister and demonic.”
The Constitution Is A Threat to a Multi-Cultural Center? Black Panther Threatens Conservative for Passing Out Constitutions – Common American Journal ”Are students that promote the black panther ideology and the Office of Diversity in league together at the University of Minnesota – Duluth (UMD)? It would would appear so in the video [at the link]. The events took place last week as one young man, Phil Cleary, handed out pocket Constitutions on campus in honor of Constitution Day. He had a table with literature promoting Youth for Western Civilization, a group dedicated to traditional values and western civilization, and engaged in students and faculty passing by. Then, the leftists showed up to heckle.”
Looks like the government is still on schedule to run out of money on Friday – stay tuned for more shenanigans and hot air.
