Obama to Give Senate Climate Bill a Push With MIT Speech

Obama to Give Senate Climate Bill a Push With MIT Speech; The New York Times

President Obama will try to push the Senate climate bill forward Friday with an energy-themed speech at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, just days before the start of a marathon series of hearings featuring testimony from top administration officials.

The White House said Obama's remarks covering "American leadership in clean energy" will dovetail with the Senate's effort to place a first-ever economywide cap on greenhouse gas emissions.

Comment: I forget which chapter number "Climate Change" is in The Grand Book of Colossal Manufactured Events Intended to Expand Government, Part I, written by Horace Oligarch, Suicide Press, 1913; but one would think the more often used "Financial Catastrophic Banking Failure" chapter 1 would be a little easier to put into effect. Yet the chapter 5 'Pandemic Influenza" is working well with the H1N1 Hong Kong Pekineses Swine Flu than expected. Or maybe we could have the oil companies cut back on oil production right before winter to make it seem as though there is a shortage of oil...

Or we could relearn what liberty and freedom mean.

Do I detect a hint of sarcasm? ;)

Well I like to call it satire, otherwise if it was sarcasm the FCC might seek a warrant for arrest because it might be considered hate speech or something like that...wink, wink, nod, nod. 8-)
