Amid the race between politicians to capitalize on consumer anger at high gas prices, at least one member of Congress, Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., expressed a much-needed perspective on the problem — these same politicians own a share of the blame.
During an interview with Larry Kudlow earlier this week about rising gas prices, Rep. Blackburn observed, “If we’re going to work toward [energy independence], we’re going to have to do some things differently. Now, I can tell you one of the things that I wish had been done differently is over the past 30 years, we have had environmental extremists driving energy policy in this country, saying no to everything.”
And the ‘green’ activists pat themselves on the back and tell each other how great they are because they’re so ‘concerned”. But one think I have noticed is that the vast majority of ‘green’ people are supportive of policies that mainly affect others. They’re willing to sacrifice anything you have for their principles. But they sing a different tune when they are the ones affected.
Remember the saying, ‘A developer wants to build a house in the woods; a conservationist HAS a house in the woods.’ The ‘greens’ want to see a country where they make decisions about what is allowed, or not allowed. That way they can insure that the ‘right’ people profit.
