With the way the Sierra Club, Northern Environmental Center, and other ‘green groups’ act, hindering a power plant to drop our electric rates… As well as trying to ban wood and coal furnaces, while driving up the price of heating oil… It only leaves us with one choice. Leave AK because we can’t afford the second mortgage to heat our homes in the Interior. Yes, a second mortgage.

My electric bill shows me that the ‘fuel surcharge’ costs more than the kwh I use. Why? Because we have to generate electricity with oil along with coal. Why? Because we don’t have a coal generator running right now because its held up by environmental groups. Why? Because coal is dirty right? Never mind that its a Clean Coal Plant, nor that coal technology in normal plants has improved to a point that our ancestors wouldn’t recognize it because its so much cleaner.

Until we go nuclear, we will need to burn coal, oil, natural gas, or something else to effectively produce electricity without damming up a river. Green technology is a mere pipe dream that isn’t capable of producing power to support humanity beyond the INDIVIDUALS who choose to live off the grid. Economy of scale makes it a FANTASTIC micro solution for the individual, but a poor macro solution for the nation and industry. Thats REALITY, no matter what the Obama Administration, Sierra Club, or Northern Environmental Center think.

In honor of the Obama Administrations current priorities…  Go after the Amish for selling raw milk and homemade cheese across state lines with mall ninja SWAT officers who work for the FDA and Dept. of Agriculture; all the while letting the BATFE smuggle guns across the Southern Border with Mexico to the Zetas; all the while blaming both the small farmers and the gun owning public for crimes which they aren’t guilty of.  Its not a joke about how they go after small farmers selling raw milk as terrorists.  In each case DHS has used a 2002 anti-terror law aimed at bio weapons as a statute to shut down small farmers at gun point.

Once again, GWOT Veterans are in the cross hairs of the very government they served to protect YOUR liberties…  When you sit and read the articles, keep in mind how easy it would be to construe a wounded Veteran from recent operations in Iraq who loves to be prepared and live outdoors showing up at a surplus store.  Having been wounded, and losing limbs, they can easily be ‘profiled’ according to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force handout as a domestic terrorist.  This after MIAC, and the DHS Report in 2008.  BOHICA!

Well, considering Prop 2 outright bans coal, and my outdoor boiler regardless of which fuel I use… And sets up police powers for the Borough to measure the moisture in your wood pile to ensure you have dry wood… As well as setting up opacity measurements for wood smoke (but doesn’t apply to any other types of smoke even though oil boilers, wood boilers, and coal boilers all produce very opaque smoke at -30 through -50 F….) in which a ‘code enforcement officer’ objectively determines if you smoke is too opaque (also, never mind the lack of daylight during winter in AK, or that its banning the most economical fuel sources at this present time requiring us to burn oil or ‘approved’ wood stoves).

All this, because the people who live in Ester literally badgered people into signing petitions at the Library and soccer practices. Yup, I can confirm that its the Ester crowd, while I running the Equinox Ultra Marathon on Ester Dome; all the Subaru’s, Volkswagens, and Audis had “Yes on 2” signs and stickers as well as the properties. Obviously, its meant to get riff-raff like my family out of town so that the folks who can afford the $20,000 Volkswagens and Audi and the fuel oil to heat their hilltop homes don’t have smell my wood or coal smoke regardless of the actual air quality (by they way, we have worse air quality in summer with our 1,000,000+ acre forest fires… but those don’t count toward ‘attainment’ or ‘non-attainment’ of PM 2.5 standards… Which is the only reason we are non-compliant, it used to be PM 10 until we obtained compliance, funny how the number moves like that!).

I borrowed Antonia Prohias’ cartoon of the sheep skin drapped over the hammer and sickle. Its the cartoon that got him kicked out of Cuba… Incidentally responsible for his employment by MAD! Magazine and the creation of “Spy Vs Spy”.

Really, if any agency deserves budget cuts more than the TSA let me know… Wait, never mind, I can think of a few myself… However, maybe we should do away with the multiple redundant bureaucracy that is the Dept. of Homeland Security and send ‘Big Sis’ Napolitano back to New Mexico. Its obvious that these ‘enhanced’ screening techniques often times end up being used on children who aren’t involved in terrorism; along with grandmothers, grandfathers, and I’m sure handicapped folks. Being a father of toddlers, this disgusts me; being a GWOT veteran who went forth to kill terrorists in their own nation, this angers me further to see these amateurs ignore techniques that are far less intrusive and far more effective (yes it involves profiling behavior, not race; though since most of the crazy suicide bombers stem from one part of the world… however that behavior profiling might also yield some other results in other arenas such as battling drug smuggling…). So here it is folks the articles for your perusal from Glenn Beck’s The Blaze: Little Miss Drexel’s folks, and the Jihad Jammer. So, which Americans should we screen more closely?

Why do I say its a Taxpayer Reality and Union Propaganda?  Well, if you aren’t on-board with the Union PAC, especially the public employees who work for Mr. and Ms. Taxpayer; you will be crushed by the Unions.  They will organize protests, boycott you, and send thugs after you

…Notice to government workers, Mr. and Ms. Taxpayer are your boss (along with being the Governors boss, and the Legislatures boss); and when you decide to attack your ’employer’ for unfair practices, you attack the citizens of the state, or this nation.  In case you didn’t notice, you serve at the pleasure of your employer, the ones who pay taxes that go into your pay check.  Should you crush the tax payers, you cut off your own pay check!  Have fun with that!

Despite the misspelling…

…never falls far from the tree!  Especially the Murkowski family (and their connections to Stevens and his wrong doings in the Senate and here in Alaska).  Nepotism at its finest!

This one I did with an idea from a volunteer in the Joe Miller for US Senate campaign.  This is another off the cycle additional cartoon to my stack for the year!  Election season is fruitful for political cartooning!

Alaska Political Family business is threatened by a loss in the Republican Primary.  RINO’s call in the Legal Thugs…  Too bad, these lawyers can’t really find a way to take down Judge Miller!

Amazing how the more liberal elements of the Democratic Party, and even the GOP, tend to forget that they claim to embrace religious tolerance in the face of the Tea Party’s success…  I especially find the DNC’s hypocrisy in this case to be very disturbing as they tend hold the lions share of Wiccan voters.  That is, at least what the DNC tries very hard to convey…  The reality is actually quite different.  I know of three non-Christian Pagan/Wiccan gun toting Conservative voters personally…  Believe me, they are just as miffed about the DNC’s lies about religious tolerance as I am (as a Roman Catholic).  But this is Alaska after all!
