Interesting viewpoint, but if the EPA doesn't regulate greenhouse gases, then who? Look forward to reading more on this intelligent and promising-looking blog.

Been around the block a while

As to the comment before this one, EPA is only to regulate as mandated by Congress. Regulatory agencies were never meant to legislate or extrapolate additional mandates from existing law. Its dangerous business.

The Administration's and environmentalist extremists' approach is nothing new. The people's lack of interest in hashing through the data and studies on greenhouse gases and encouraging logical legislative response is new. I cannot repeat this enough "Protecting the environment and resources and economic advancement are not mutually exclusive." If some sane party could address the Administration and help them to realize the current proposals by EPA will significantly impede economic progress as opposed to a moderate and well-educated legislative proposal providing appropriate incentives toward these carbon emission reductions might be the best solution and keep economic growth on track. Seek sanity from elected officials and accept nothing less. As for regulatory agencies, We're on a slippery slope and have been for forty years!

Great Blog! I am a centralist, so I have an open mind to intelligent information. I just wish the rest of the US would read both sides of an issue from intelligent sources and then make intelligent decisions. I guess the operative word is intelligent!!!????? We are getting the "Tea Party" info down here in Mexico, but we also have both parties represented. Thanks, keep it coming.

  • National Debt: Does not matter anymore
    The level of the national federal does not matter anymore or at least no until the consequences set in. Parts of the Virus relief justified more borrowing but parts had no rational. The latest Biden giveaway looks like it was drawn up in a basement and there will be more debt to come. Already more that $ 5 trillion. There does not seem to be a social, income transfer or made work scheme that will ever satisfy the now Democrats controlled government. Wonder where they will be when interest rates and inflation take hold?

  • Political Report Card
    Now that eht Democrats control the Federal government , here are the latest grades for our government,

    Administration: President Biden has hardly ever been right on anything and he continues that path with his leftist, exclusionary approach. Immigration deluge at the border, bonehead virus relief package aimed at everything except the areas that actually need help. Giving in to a nuclear Iran, appointments made on quotas. Control of the economy based on probably climate rational, and moving to force people to buy cars that can not be charged. The list and direction is so scary and threatening. The Grade: F plus.

    The Senate is bankrupt institution run by Socialist Democrats by the narrowest of margins. No comity, no prisoners, no discussion. Just more spending, government growth Grade: Grade D minus

    House: The House is a partisan and nasty pit, devoid on any constructive ideas. Grade : Grade F
