One can be very stupid and still have a knack for stringing words together

Take this article by Thomas Freidman in the nytimes in which he states:

Soon after Suskind’s book came out, the legal scholar Cass Sunstein, who then was at the University of Chicago, pointed out that Mr. Cheney seemed to be endorsing the same “precautionary principle” that also animated environmentalists. Sunstein wrote in his blog: “According to the Precautionary Principle, it is appropriate to respond aggressively to low-probability, high-impact events — such as climate change. Indeed, another vice president — Al Gore — can be understood to be arguing for a precautionary principle for climate change (though he believes that the chance of disaster is well over 1 percent).”

Given one is even gullible enough to believe the AGW/CC hucksters the point this obtuse ass is missing is that the medicine is worse than the disease. Oh, he believes the Green Santa Clause will descend upon the world if we just believe hard enough and screw up all the worlds economies, food production, energy production, reproductive rights, civil rights, basic freedom from bureaucratic interference in everyone's lives, and leave energy independence, byproduct free manufacturing, electric cars, workable wind and solar power under our replantable tree. But the best part is this moron somehow equates this nations people kowtowing to their overreaching self-appointed "betters" with becoming "stronger, more innovative".

Strength through surrender. How French. Has to be a Star Trek fan.

Copenhagen is even going to save the dollar. 'Cause, ya' know, myriad and huge taxes and high energy prices have always spurred economic activity. Uh-huh.

Give thomas a pom-pom and take away his keyboard, please.

Some of Barak Carter-Obama's "Team" May Have Peered Down the Rabbit Hole - Administration Warns of 'Command-and-Control' Regulation Over Emissions

Putting aside, for the moment, the insanity of the EPA regulating the air we breath (who didn't see that coming?! All together now, "Told You So!") citing one disingenuous reason after another it is interesting to look at how the new power the administration has granted to the administration is put to use.

The above linked article contains the following paragraph:
The Obama administration is warning Congress that if it doesn't move to regulate greenhouse gases, the Environmental Protection Agency will take a "command-and-control" role over the process in a way that could hurt business.

One of two things is indicated by this "anonymous source" and the leak;

1) Somebody on "The Team" has seen just how whacked and willing the president is to persue his statist authoritarian expansion at all costs, up to and including further tanking an economy swirling the bottom of the toilet bowl and is trying to clue folks in,

or (more likely)

2) One of president Barak Carter-Obama's staff is doing nothing more than aiding in the policy of his president to use the "law by declaration" power of the executive branch to threaten congress into doing his bidding to impress the pinky-wavers in Copenhagen and is blithely unconcerned about the working folk and families the regulation/extortion schemes would do economic damage to.

It is illustrative to note that the apex proletariat advocacy group, The Politburo, employed a well-worn adage when issuing similarly onerous though pointless edicts:

If there is any misery to endure it should be spread among the poor as they are used to misery and therefore better able to deal with it.

Of course, they were used to misery because of the Politburo......
