"Power Grab" - by Christopher C. Horner

"How Obama's green policies will steal your freedom and bankrupt America", is the subject of this MUST READ book published in 2010. "Really big government Obama" is the title of one chapter of this 307 page MUST READ or at least skim, book. Even our Rep-Dem, Ray LaHood who well respected columnist George Will once labeled as our "Secretary of Behavior Modification' is mentioned for his actions on trying to enforce hi-speed rail in places where it doesn't make sense where the financial mandate is placed on the struggling states like Florida and California. (Florida, with a Republican governor had the sense to refuse the "Greeks, or whoever, bearing gifts" (and the Greeks are going broke) while Democrat Governor Brown of California is trying to force hi-speed rail between small, remote communities, which the California public has finally decided makes no sense at all).

Many of our freedoms have already been stolen. Many of us are not aware of these stolen freedoms, as they have not DIRECTLY affected us. Yet. This book takes a little longer to read, 307 well-foot noted pages, as is the book "Throw Them All Out".

One reason, I have not posted much lately is reading all I can to take abreast of local and world happenings, play some tennis and lead a life of 'no worries' in my retirement.


As a footnote, LaHood is best remembered by some of us other than Caterpillar and Terry Kohlbus and the EDC and the JSEB, for his efforts to get a stupid $800 million - one billion dollar new highway to Chicago for our local drug trade, elite shoppers,  perhaps for a few native Chicagoans who moved from the city they loved, and Caterpillar. When all these attempts failed, he tried a ring road across the river, then a $600 million improvement to Rt. 29 and denied he said that a vote to combine the two election commissions into one was a "no brainer".

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better? hnwvzu [url=]karen millen purple dress one shoulder[/url] udtqye [url=]karen millen shoes blue[/url] svpets dtqijy yqlmwj [url=]karen millen purple dress one shoulder[/url] slcchk gwqpwa
