It’s Official: Worst. Recovery. EVER. So the current political street theatre about “assault weapons” is most likely noise meant to distract attention from the miserable economic mess the political class has created. But perhaps they are also worried that if and when the bitter clingers begin to tire of the non-recovery, some may begin shooting. Maybe the things they should be talking about are policies that actually would increase economic growth rather than QEs and ZIRPs, eh?

For one thing, importing solar panels from China makes urban green lefties happy but developing US and Canadian brown energy would mean JOBS and MONEY for US workers as well as lower energy costs for the rest of us. And reduce our dependence on foreign energy sources like the Middle East, which Obama’s foreign policy has made increasingly risky. It would be a win-win-win except for the politicians whose contributions and power depend on blocking it.

Developing our own energy sources is not in the plan. Those in charge do not want affordable energy from coal, oil, or natural gas. Freezing your ass off in the winter & sweating like a pig in the summer does not matter to them. Why should it? Those imposing what is passing for our energy policy won’t be affected, & that’s because they are more important then you.

Just heard that the EU is predicting the so called recovery is coming to a grinding stop. So by instituting bans on everything but paying taxes the Commicrats are hoping to stimulate the economy.

And the clown is purposely making it worse

“Despite new evidence the Community Reinvestment Act led to riskier lending and played a key role in the subprime mortgage crisis, the Obama administration is broadening the anti-redlining regulation’s authority and scope, spooking bankers.”
