Podcast – Supreme Courts Freezes EPA Clean Power Plan – Free Form Politics

In this week’s episode I discuss another razor-thin, 5-4 Supreme Court decision to freeze Obama’s Clean Power Plan while they decide if it is legal to ruin what’s left of the coal industry and further reduce greenhouse gasses.

In the Free Form Politics segment I go noteless and just speak extemporaneously about the candidates, who’s courting whom, who’s dissing whom, and why the supporters of one candidate are different from the rest. read more

Tesla and the War on Coal

by: the Common Constitutionalist

You may have seen pictures of Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, playing amateur daredevil as he tried his hand at wing walking the other day. Yes, he’s happy-go-lucky, living high on the hog – his coffers full of government largess.

So dependent upon the government for its survival, Tesla’s 2014 annual report stated: “Our growth depends in part on the availability and amount of government subsidies and economic incentives.”

That’s a pretty bold and honest statement. Let me rephrase that. It’s a pretty bold statement, for to be honest, Musk’s company depends almost entirely on the generosity of us ignorant taxpayers, in one form or another.

They don’t sell many cars, and the money they do make is through a myriad of tax credits and other government giveaways. It’s a great scheme and the model for crony corporatism.

Tesla, by all estimates is a great car, but the company couldn’t survive a year in a real free-market. Yet they are evidently not content with their current method of fleecing the American public. read more

After Obama’s Energy Crackdown, We Will Resemble California, Or Worse

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We will be judged in history for our lethargy. History will judge us as posterity looks back at this period in America with disdain. We will be known as the generation that ushered in the end of America, as was once known.

And all this is happening the same way it did when the progressive Republican disaster Herbert Hoover led directly to the more disastrous Franklin Roosevelt. But it’s worse this time around, for there are multiple millions more stupid people who are evidently much more easily duped by a slick talking salesman.

How else could an America hating community agitator get elected – twice?

Some would say this to be overly provocative and hyperbolic, but think about it this way. Your husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend says to you, that he or she loves you – loves everything about you. So much so, that they wish to change you completely. Yes honey – I love you so much that I want to change everything about you. read more
