Obama “Airs” Another Grievance

Barack Obama and his motley crew of left-wing in-patients remind me more and more of the schizophrenic who appeared in my office one day with his head wrapped in a chain — an appropriate metaphor, by the way, for today’s Progressives — though unlike the Progs, Elmer proved to be a relatively harmless gent. He sat down to complete an application form, but soon discovered that three pages was not enough to contain the totality of his current thought, so when he came to the end of the booklet, he just continued on until he’d filled the entire table top with his indecipherable scribbles.  He was a fairly intelligent guy, you see, but like Obama and his minions, was unable to distinguish where the fantasy world he inhabited inside his skull ended and the real one began.  Elmer was definitely unstable but he was determinedly guileless, which is where he differed from the apparently stable but always treacherous Obama administration, a regime whose latest nefarious scheme is nothing more than a thinly disguised attempt to further institutionalize socialism in America by presenting it as a healthcare issue (Emphases mine):

Obama Administration Combats Racist Air

The Obama Administration has identified the latest front in its tireless war against America’s systemic injustice: asthma. A new report, succinctly titled the “Coordinated Federal Action Plan to Reduce Racial and Ethnic Asthma Disparities,” issued jointly on May 31st by the EPA, HHS, and HUD, argues, in effect, that freedom has led to an unfair distribution of healthy lungs, and therefore steps must be taken to achieve respiratory justice…

 The federal government under Barack Obama et al aims to control the air you breathe, the water you drink, the food you eat, the amount of income you may keep, and the type of medical care you will receive.  Yet these socialist tyrants have the nerve to continue to call themselves “Democrats.”  At least in public.

See: Environmental justice: A new movement to restrict your movement:

When most people talk about President Obama’s influence on America, they mention reforming health care, repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell” or ending the war in Iraq.

But a nearly unknown executive order could have a greater impact on the future of America than all of those things combined, potentially giving the federal government power to control every project in the country.

The obscure memorandum of understanding, based on a long-forgotten executive order signed by President Clinton in 1994, marries the issues of environmentalism and social justice. The federal government can use the laws from one to control the other.

  1. Under the pretense of Social Justice and Environmental Justice, there is nothing that government can’t do. When Romney takes office, his first job is to fumigate all ten square miles of Washington DC for parasites.

  2. Bob Mack says:

    Environmental justice … what a crock. The only environmental justice will be when the courts decide to stop governments from stealing people’s property under the guise of eminent domain, & the socialist subversives in the EPA & elsewhere are fitted for leg irons & trotted off to Leavenworth.

  3. Catholic Glasses says:

    Reblogged this on Catholic Glasses and commented:
    Orwellian nonsense geared to control everyone else, but themselves.

  4. Cheryl Pass says:

    Yes. Clinton and his “Presidents Council on Sustainable Development” set the operation in motion. But, to be fair, Bush did nothing to rescind this rubbish, leaving it in place for the agencies to continue their march against freedom. Will Romney fumigate the place as Jim suggests? I am not holding my breath…speaking of lungs. But I do hope so.

    • Bob Mack says:

      This business of issuing unconstitutional “Executive Orders” has to be curtailed. As does the appointment of unaccountable “czars’, answerable only to the president.

      • righthook38 says:

        I agree. I know every president for many years has used executive orders, but I don’t like them, regardless of who is using them, and this president has taken it to a completely different level, using it to bypass Congress. But, he gets away with it. Congress never challenges him, and that’s dangerous. He’ll continue to do so, at an even more alarming pace, if (God forbid) he wins re-election.

  5. bunkerville says:

    I will not hold my breath. Romney just named a leftist to head his transition team.

  6. righthook38 says:

    What??!!! ugh…when will it stop??!!! I can’t even have a political conversation with Obama supporters anymore, without wanting to violently shake them. How can anyone defend this crazed, power-hungry Marxist? How much of this can even be un-done at this point? It’s something new every day, and it’s becoming quite overwhelming.

    Check out David Limbaugh’s new book “The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama’s War on the Republic”. You can get it at Amazon. He said he had over 13,000 articles that he had to cram into this book, and even HE was overwhelmed when writing and re-reading it. It’s unbelievable.

  7. Freedom, by the way says:

    Environmental Justice??? What ever happened to teach our kids that life isn’t fair? Because it isn’t. But what’s so wonderful about America (or used to be) is we have FREEDOM to move about and find the environment we want. Sick of breathing city air in the ghetto? Save $70 and take the Greyhound to Iowa and work on a farm. No one is stopping you.

    • righthook38 says:

      Exactly. I remember having this same argument with someone last year, about state’s rights, and if you don’t like the laws/regulations/environment in one state, you can move to another state. Oh no….liberals won’t hear of it. We’re required to change everything to suit their fancy. There is no compromise….it’s their way or the highway….well shoot, now they’re trying to control that!

    • Bob Mack says:

      It’s not about the environment, though. Just like global warming isn’t about global warming. It’s about CONTROL and the institution of socialism.

      • Bob Mack says:

        Anyone want to argue that we’re still living in a free country?

        EPA defends flights to spy on ranchers

        The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency claims it has legal authority and precedent for using aerial photography to monitor compliance with the Clean Water Act.

        The issue came to light when U.S. Senator Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) announced he, along with all of Nebraska’s Congressional delegation, had sent a letter to EPA administrator Lisa Jackson questioning the agency’s motivation and legal authority for using aerial surveillance of Nebraska livestock operations.
