Obama is acting unconstitutionally once again by proclaiming law that Congress refused to pass.
Even then, Obama weasel-worded his speech, saying that human activity "contributed" to global warming, not "caused" global warming.
So, the question is how much contribution?
1%, 5%, 10% 25&, 50%?
Even Galt would might to some minimal contribution, but the net effect of all Obama's decrees would be negligible as a solution.
Obama's objective is to destroy America as a world power.
We don't have any time for climate denier idiots like Galt. President Obama is acting within the legitimate limits of his powers. The U S Supreme Court ordered that the E.P.A. carry out its authority to mitigate climate change .

(AP) IG: IRS credit cards used for wine, pornography
By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER
Associated Press
WASHINGTON
Poor oversight by the Internal Revenue Service allowed workers to use agency credit cards to buy wine for an expensive luncheon, dorky swag for managers' meetings and, for one employee, romance novels and diet pills, an agency watchdog said Tuesday.
Two IRS credit cards were used to buy online pornography, though the employees said the cards were stolen. One of the workers reported five agency credit cards lost or stolen.
IRS employees used agency credit cards to make more than 273,000 purchases totaling nearly $108 million in 2010 and 2011, according to the report by the Treasury inspector general for tax administration.
The vast majority of those purchases were legitimate, the report said. However, the report said the IRS has inadequate controls to prevent inappropriate purchases.
For example, investigators found that one IRS employee spent $2,655 on diet pills, romance novels, steaks, a smartphone and baby-related items, including bottles, games and clothes. The case was referred to the IG's office that investigates employee misconduct, the report said.
Among other "improper" purchases identified by the inspector general:
_$3,152 to rent a popcorn machine and to buy prizes for an employee event, including bandanas, stuffed animals, sunglasses and stovepipe hats.
_$418 for novelty decorations and swag at managers' meetings, including kazoos, bathtub toys and "Thomas the Tank Engine" wristbands.
Surveys have shown the credibility level of intelligence severely LACKS in the ranks of the probable apparent new hires, amongst of the tools of robbinghoodieticing.

It is suggested to take names and identifying numbers, and reintroduce them to pencils and paper...and some simple addition and subtraction, due to more apparent rotten apple barrel before cart mess.

If this years IRS stuff has been a preview of what's on the horizen...nightmare counselors should be in training, along with troops of fifth grade math instructors.

Wiki - Energy Policy of China: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_policy_of...
"On June 19, 2007, the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency announced that a preliminary study had indicated that China's greenhouse gas emissions for 2006 had exceeded those of the United States for the first time. The agency calculated that China’s CO2 emissions from fossil fuels increased by 9% in 2006, while those of the United States fell by 1.4%, compared to 2005.
Coal is the major source of energy in China....China is the world's top coal producer and ranks third in the amounts of coal reserves. It is approximately self-sufficient in coal, with a production of 2.38 billion ton and a consumption of 2.37 billion tons in 2006. China used to be a major coal exporter, but exports have decreased and China may soon become a net importer.
In 2010 China was second highest hard coal importer (157 Mt).
China consumes more coal than any other country. Its share of the world coal production was 48% in 2009 and 28% in 2000. Coal use in the world increased 48% from 2000 to 2009. In practice, the majority of this growth occurred in China and the rest in other parts of Asia.
China currently generates nearly four-fifths of its electricity from coal-fired power stations. It is progressing with the construction of 562 new coal-fired plants over the next few years. In 2007, John Ashton, of the UK Foreign Office, informed the BBC that China was building about two power stations every week. About 79% of China's electricity was produced with coal between 2004 and 2010. Coal electricity increased from 1,713 TWh in 2004 to 3,273 TWh in 2010.
Approximately 7% of China's energy was from renewable sources in 2006, a figure targeted to rise to 10% by 2010 and to 16% by 2020.[17] The major renewable energy source in China is hydropower. Total hydro-electric output in China in 2009 was 615.64 TWh, constituting 16.6% of all electricity generated. The country already has the most hydro-electric capacity in the world, and the Three Gorges Dam is projected to be the largest hydro-electric power station in the world, with a total capacity of 22.5 GW. It has been in full operation since May 2012."
President Barack Obama calls for an END to financing for coal world-wide in today's climate change speech. That's BIG!:-D

The Senate amnesty bill offers a financial incentive to employers to hire newly legalized immigrants instead of American citizens.

Under Obamacare, businesses with over 50 workers that employ American citizens without offering them qualifying health insurance could be subject to fines of up to $3,000 per worker. But because newly legalized immigrants wouldn’t be eligible for subsidies on the Obamacare exchanges until after they become citizens – at least 13 years under the Senate bill – businesses could avoid such fines by hiring the new immigrants instead.

Guess who gets the job...not the black guy.

Supreme Court Strikes Down Racist Voting Laws...
Posted on June 25, 2013 by sundance

WASHINGTON DC - The Supreme Court struck down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act on Tuesday, the provision of the landmark civil rights law that designates which parts of the country must have changes to their voting laws cleared by the federal government or in federal court.

The court’s opinion said it did not strike down the act of Congress “lightly,” and said it “took care to avoid ruling on the constitutionality of the Voting Rights Act” in a separate case back in 2009.“Congress could have updated the coverage formula at that time, but did not do so. Its failure to act leaves us today with no choice but to declare [Section 4] unconstitutional. The formula in that section can no longer be used as a basis for subjecting jurisdictions to preclearance.”

The Three Gorges Dam is an environmental disaster that could never be approved in the US. In fact, it is doubtful that any new hydropower project could be approved in the US.

China's coal-fired power plants generally lack emissions controls on sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides, which were being installed on US plants until Obama killed the industry.

Even if the US shuts down every coal-fired plant in the country, the new plants constructed in China will overwhelm any reduction in greenhouse gases.

And even more jobs will flee to China.

Thanks, Barack.

Smoke and mirrors.
Your statement is an interesting twist of the FACTS. Just exactly how many employer insurance plans cover 100% of the cost of medical care... No deductibles for hospitalization, no fees for office visits or lab tests? I guarantee you employer covered insurance plans with that type of coverage would be every bit as costly as the Medicare + supplemental coverage you referenced.
Most employer-sponsored plans cover approx. 80% of the premium (100% for many public employees), so the cost to the employee for family coverage is approx.$200-300 per month.

Medicare costs approx.$110 per person per month plus approx.$150 per person per month supplemental plus approx.$30 per person per month for Part D. So approx.$580 per month for a married couple. In addition, Medicare is means tested and premiums can increase by as much as $200 per person per month based on income, bringing cost near $1000 per month for a married couple.

As for co-pays and deductibles and the like. Medicare is similar to private insurance plans.

LOL. In case you haven't noticed, Christie himself has said he is even more "shocked" by some of the crazy "stuff" Republicans bring to the floor of Congress than Democrats. He's one of those new image Republicans I mentioned. That is what it will take to revive the GOP....a new image, new ideas and a willingness to compromise. If the Republicans continue down their obstructionist path, they are dead in the water.

Not to mention the Russians.
