EPA to Start Regulating All Human Activity

If you think the economy is in trouble now, wait until the effects of this insanity hits your wallet:

The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to act for the first time to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that scientists blame for the warming of the planet, according to top Obama administration officials.
The decision, which most likely would play out in stages over a period of months, would have a profound impact on transportation, manufacturing costs and how utilities generate power. It could accelerate the progress of energy and climate change legislation in Congress and form a basis for the United States' negotiating position at United Nations climate talks set for December in Copenhagen.

Carbon dioxide is an essential element of our atmosphere that plants need to live, and that is generated by all human activity, including breathing. There is no evidence that it causes the natural and inevitable process of climate fluctuation. But by pretending that it is harmful to the planet, the government has established that literally everything we do is bad and subject to suppressive legislation. The negative consequences for our economy — not to mention our liberty — could not be overstated.

Unless we revolt against the leftist lunatics who are imposing this bizarre new form of totalitarianism, America will soon be reduced to sub–Third World living standards. This might be a good time to look into immigrating to communist China — for the freedom to generate wealth.

Slamming the brakes on civilization will supposedly benefit the polar bears.

This could be the knockout punch for the economy.

Time to stock up on gold and ammo.

forest, I've been saying that for a while.

BTW, anyone who listened when I said "buy gold" back before the election would be up by around $250/ounce now.

If they keep this crap up it might be time to give some of the libtard/environmentalist a good case of lead poisoning. Hope I have enough ammo stocked!

So they're going to tell me how many times I can fart in a day? Will I need to purchase carbon credits if I feel a little extra gassy?

These people are insane.

This will be their undoing. Actual scientists don't buy into this foolishness, and neither do any informed individuals. This is a blatant totalitarian power grab.

It is time to tell these wackos that we will cut electical power starting with them. Likewise air travel. They are not allowed to get on an airplane, they can have nothing delivered to their homes or be allowed to drive anywhere. Let's see how commited they realy are.

It doesn't take any imagination to see how that is going to affect the stock market. The more people understand what this means the more capital is going to flee our country. And I don't blame anyone for doing rational things with their money.

Better off stocking up on 1 oz silver bars. They will be more useful as currency in the post US dollar economy.

1 oz gold bars would be for more expensive items like cars.

Another good rifle target. Maybe a 7MM magnum at 200 meters.
