The Washington Examiner has reported some comments made by the Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu, that on the surface piss me off, but have a dark undercurrent. I know the mainstream media likes to use “dark undercurrent” to describe tea parties, but when looking at the Secretary’s comments, I believe that is the most accurate way to describe them. Steven Chu said, “the American public…just like your teenage kids, aren’t acting in a way that they should act. The American public has to really understand in their core how important this issue is.”
And the EPA is joining this fight to get us all to understand how important it is for them to control our homes and lives. “The administration aims to teach them—literally. The Environmental Protection Agency is focusing on real children. Partnering with the Parent Teacher Organization, the agency earlier this month launched a cross-country tour of 6,000 schools to teach students about climate change and energy efficiency. We’re showing people across the country how energy efficiency can be part of what they do every day,” said EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson. “Confronting climate change, saving money on our utility bills, and reducing our use of heavily-polluting energy can be as easy as making a few small changes.” So they need to indoctrinate all of us like children, including the children. We just do not know what is good for us.
If we are teenagers, then I guess that makes Obama Big Daddy. You can ask Mr. Chu if you can stay up late tonight at firstname.lastname@example.org.
