Do You Have A Permit?

With ObamaCare being imposed upon the American people by President Obama and cabal of Liberals in Congress be assured that they will soon turn their destructive eyes back to Cap & Trade and punitive regulation of the energy sector of the American economy.

If they manage to pass some variant of the traitors, Rep. Henry Waxman’s (D-CA) and Rep. Edward Markey’s American Clean Energy Security Act, America’s economy – especially at the average consumer level – is going to be horribly harmed, possibly beyond the point of recovery.

That is the point of their exercise and to be expected; you can’t fundamentally change America without first destroying all that it is.

But President Obama’s and his Liberals’ Cap & Trade scheme, like almost all man-caused disasters, would not be without its humorous side.

I can just picture some goon  from the government trying to regulate a volcano
Do You Have A Permit For Those Emissions, Buster?

Can’t you just picture this happening? The insectile mindlessness and regimen of the average bureaucrat and their enforcers combined with the hubris and narcissism of Obama’s regime makes such a ludicrous scenario almost assured.

After all, if one is beset by such arrogance that one believes that he can fundamentally change the very planet Earth, it’s a small step to deciding to regulate it. 😉

A Little Perspective

It’s World Earth Day 2010 and, as such, it’s a good day to truly think about the beauty, power, and majesty of our planet. This is a good time to cultivate a little perspective.

Let us all for a moment put aside our pride and hubris and look at the Earth and the stark, raw power She can bring to bear at any given moment.

Eyjafjallajkull Erupting

April 19, 2010 Eyjafjallajkull Volcano Erupting

Nothing short of our profligate use of our arsenal of nuclear weapons could hope to match the power and destructive force of the recent eruption of Eyjafjallajkull, which was a small and relatively mild volcanic eruption.

So when you hear people ranting or whining about Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) or how the Civilized World has caused massive and apocalyptic Climate Change via our CO2 emissions over the last handful of decades think about this picture and recognize that all of this hype is predicated upon people’s pride and hubris.

Love the Earth for she is fair and perilous beyond all of our means to measure. Just don’t delude yourself – or be deluded by other’s vanity or cynical manipulations – into being so confident that mankind can so easily fundamentally change Her so easily.
