I have been accused of using invectives and exaggeration in describing the current administration, which now has four more years to dismantle our Constitution.

There is one little problem though. It does not yet exist commercially. That is apparently of little concern to Lisa. The EPA fined refiners $6.8 million for not following their edict. They appealed her decision. She thanked them for their concern, but said the decision will stand, pay up!

Somehow, I don't think President Bush would be copacetic with this mugging and theft of the energy sector. American oil refiners have been forced to spend money to sue the federal government for being forced to comply with an impossible edict, rather than focusing on creating jobs.
How dare I call this administration lawless? Here are just a few of the power grabs that began as a trickle and have turned into an executive flood of circumvention, perhaps to become a full blown tidal wave by 2016: (1) Circumventing Congress's refusal to pass the DREAM ACT by directing federal officers to no longer deport large groups of younger, illegal immigrants; (2) stripping away a "central component" of the 1996 bipartisan Welfare Reform Act that being the "work requirement" by substituting "education programs" for those citizens to engage in while they enjoy their welfare benefits. This sends the wrong message and encourages growth of our "entitlement society"; (3) can't pass Cap and Trade, just have the EPA enforce something similar through unilateral regulations...
