15 PPM

In another example of the Liberal Progressive Democrat thrashing of the entrepreneurial spirit, BP and the Federal Government rebuffed Mr. Nobu Su of Taiwan, CEO of TMT Corporation in his efforts to help save the Gulf from the growing oil slick.  Mr. Su had offered to retrofit massive (1115 ft) tankers with skimming equipment and lease them for the cleanup efforts in the gulf.  So, Mr. Su, taking a queue from American spirit, modified the tanker and received authorization to make port in Virginia.

Creating a giant shadow in Virginia, the Federal Government can’t hide the tanker from the press and the people, so the Coast Guard will test the vessel’s veracity to skim oil and return clean water to the gulf.  In spite of the Federal Government, we’re going to get this cleaned up.

And, in steps the EPA.

In an astonishing (lo expected) exhibition of out-of-control government, the EPA is concerned that the water returned to the gulf by the ‘A Whale’ tanker may be less than 99.9985% pure.  So, that’s it.  If there are .0016% of impurity in the water that is returned to the gulf after the vessel has cleaned millions of gallons of disgusting oil filled sludge, the EPA may deem the vessel unworthy to perform its duties.

Now, I don’t know about you, but it seems that there is already more than .0015% impurities in the water in the gulf.  Or is it just me.  And, removing millions  (maybe billions) of gallons of oil from already impure water takes precedence over draconian rules (established for the general daily harassment of the American corporation).

15 Parts Per Million?!?!  I think 30PPM or maybe 100PPM may be okay for this little job.  How about we give it a shot!

Free Enterprise Crashes The Party

760,000

One of the last figures I think I saw was that the Federal Government (public sector) has added 760,000 jobs in the past 18 months, and the private sector has shed 4,000,000 jobs!  Something in that ball park.  The new leaders of the free world declared that a stimulus of $787,000,000 (I mean $862,000,000) would keep unemployment below 8% and save our economy doomed by the policies of the prior administration!

(I’ve yet to see one example of the prior administration’s policies that caused that doom)

In the Declaration of Independence, one of the charges against the King of Britain states that:

“He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.”

Is it deja vu all over again?

Are we again living in the pre-Revolutionary times?  Granted many of the Federal hires are working temporarily for the Census, but let’s take a quick look at some of the new Officers that will Harass our People and Eat Out of Our Substance if the Obama Administration gets its way:

  • 16500 new IRS agents to make sure you get your new health care
  • Overseers to make sure that the doctor doesn’t spend too much on his/her patients’ health care
  • Regulators to ensure fees (taxes) on Carbon are collected in a timely manner
  • Bureaucrats at the Federal Reserve to oversee the implementation of Financial Regulation Reform
  • Administrator to make sure newly amnestied citizens get their portion of the welfare state

Yes, it is clear that the One is behaving in a fashion similar to that of the Crown in 1776 and sending his minions to “harrass our people, and eat out their substance.”  America must throw off that government of the Progressive Liberal (no matter what the party) in the upcoming elections and once again enjoy the Freedoms given in our Founding.

Just look back to your Declaration of Independence for the same list of grievances we filed 234 years ago.  Where’s the SEIU shop steward on that one?
