Radical Environmentalists and a Weak Congress - Recent Past and Present

Sent: Thursday, June 26, 2008 6:08 AM

A couple of years ago I published a series of 6 blogs describing how radical environmentalists such as those described in this email attached and a congress burdened by guilt are responsible for the sorry mess that this country is in. They could have done trmendous things to help the environment, while not stifling our economy. The phrase considered by many to be passe "the chickens are coming home to roost" is never more evident than the past few years.

A Gallup Poll last week published its annual survey of public confidence in U.S. institutions. The question was "How much confidence do you have in each of the following American institutions: a great deal or quite a lot"?

Out of the 16 institutions listed; the military was ranked 1st, small business was ranked 2nd and Congress where you might expect it to be; last. Big business, to whom most congressman listen too, is listed 14th and organized labor 12th.

I'm not surprised to see Congress listed last (16th) while the Presidency is listed 9th.

Big business gets a partially bad rap because they are deathly afraid of radical environmentalists and populist congresspeople who can stop, delay, or close down projects offering decent living wages, economic growth and less dependencey from foreign countries who often have a great deal of dislike for us. Radical environmentalists and our huge non-elected bureacracies file endless extensive and costly civil suits over anything their endless research finds to hinder our countries growth.

We must use our own natural resources until additional alternate energies such as solar and nuclear become cost effective.

Here is the email.

Think about it

The OPEC minister will look you in the eyes and state:
" We are at war with you infidels. Have been since
the embargo in the 1970s. You are so arrogant you
haven't even recognized it. You have more missiles,
bombs, and technology; so we are fighting with the
best weapon we have and extracting on a net basis
about $700 billion/year out of your economy. We will
destroy you! Death to the infidels!

While I am here I would like to thank you for the
following: Not developing your 250-300 year supply of oil
shale and tarsands. we know if you did this, it
would create millions of jobs for US citizens,
expand your engineering capabilities, and keep the
wealth in the US instead of sending it to us to
finance our war against you bastards.

Thanks for limiting defense dept. purchases of
oilsands from your neighbors to the north. We love
it when you confuse your allies.

Thanks for over regulating every segment of your
economy and thus delaying, by decades, the
development of alternate fuel technologies.

Thanks for limiting drilling off your coasts, in
Alaska, and anywhere there is a bug, bird, fish, or
plant that might be inconvenienced. Better that your
people suffer! Glad to see our lobbying efforts have
been so effective.

Corn based Ethanol. Praise Allah for this sham
program! Perhaps you will destroy yourself from the
inside with these types of policies. This is a gift
from Allah, praise his name! We never would have
thought of this one! This is better than when you
pay your farmers NOT TO GROW FOOD. Have them use
more energy to create less energy, and
simultaneously drive food prices through the roof.
Thank you US Congress!!!!

And finally, we appreciate you letting us fleece
you without end. You will be glad to know we have
been accumulating shares in your banks, real estate,
and publicly held companies. We also finance a good
portion of your debt and now manipulate your
markets, currency, and economies to our benefit.
