What is a green job?

“I know that there are those who disagree with the overwhelming scientific evidence on climate change, Obama said. “But here’s the thing — even if you doubt the evidence, providing incentives for energy-efficiency and clean energy are the right thing to do for our future — because the nation that leads the clean energy economy will be the nation that leads the global economy. And America must be that nation.”

On Tuesday, Obama continued his environmental pitch by asking Congress to mandate 80 percent of U.S. electricity come from ‘clean energy’ by 2035. Even with the the demise of “cap and trade” on Capitol Hill, it is now evident the administration remains irrevocably committed to interventionist polices that will ultimately translate into higher costs. The Institute for Energy Research (IER) has issued a report that shows electricity prices are almost 40 percent higher in states that have renewable mandates. Americans who live in the more industrialized areas have good cause to be concerned about policies that could unsettle cheap energy sources.

One of the most amazing things about the Obama presidency, is that the people who voted for him KNEW, they actually knew that every last one of his asinine ideas would be extremely costly, but they continue to gripe like they didn't have a clue.

Every liberal politician prefaces his pitch for 'green' energy with the caveat that 'this is going to be costly at first', which of course translates to 'this is going to be costly forever', and anyone over the age of 11 knows this to be true. Show those fat-cats a thing or two about their continuing to make all of that dirty energy that no one is going to purchase anymore. TRUE liberals will gladly pay to save the country, the environment, the world itself.

And now they join the chorus and bitch like it never even happened. Time and again I asked every last liberal who'd listen to me the same question. How are any of his ideas going to work in the real world and are you willing to pay through the nose for them. And every last one of 'em...after admitting that the free-lunch ideas were just too stupid to even argue about...said that, well sure we'll all have to pay for a cleaner, freer, more greener world but its our duty as stewards of the earth to do just that.

What IS it that makes them so dumb? Caught in the spirit of the moment? Simply overwhelmed by the Camelot of it all? Got, then stayed too drunk to know the difference? This isn't rocket surgery people. Jerking off the unicorn is a personal thing. Do what you want but don't drag the rest of us down with you. And for those who truly knew better; shame on you.
