Fwd: A License Required for your HOUSE?!

Every single day brings something more bizarre than the last. I am
convinced the Marxists and Enviro whack jobs are hell bent on destroying the
country at the expense of the folks that have worked hard and done the right
things. I don't know if we can survive another year of this, much less
three. E-mailing, sending letters and making phone calls is all I seem to
do anymore! Unfortunately, I am convinced no one is listening. I'm afraid
we will all give up, before the next election. It is part of the Alinsky
book for radicals. Create so much chaos that you overwhelm the system. We
are well on our way.

> without the permission of the EPA administrator. To get this permission,
> you will have to have the energy efficiency of your home measured. Then
> the government will tell you what your new energy efficiency requirement
> is and you will be forced to make modifications to your home under the
> retrofit provisions of this Act to comply with the new energy and water
> efficiency requirements. Then you will have to get your home measured
> again and get a license (called a "label" in the Act) that must be posted
> on your property to show what your efficiency rating is; sort of like the
> Energy Star efficiency rating label on your refrigerator or air
> conditioner. If you don't get a high enough rating, you can't sell. And,
> the EPA administrator is authorized to raise the standards every year,
> even above the automatic energy efficiency increases built into the Act.
> The EPA administrator, appointed by the President, will run the Cap &
> Trade program (AKA the "American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009")
> and is authorized to make any future changes to the regulations and
> standards he alone determines to be in the government's best interest.
> Requirements are set low initially so the bill will pass Congress; then
> the Administrator can set much tougher new standards every year.
> The Act itself contains annual required increases in energy
> efficiency for private and commercial residences and buildings. However,
> the EPA administrator can set higher standards at any time. Sect. 202

> requirements IF you meet certain energy efficiency levels. But, wait, the
> State can set additional requirements on who qualifies to receive the
> grants. You should expect requirements such as "can't have an income of

Expect the same from the home labeling

Smash all private property.

This one starts off in fine paranoid fashion.

The people hell bent on destroying the country
at your expense were just voted out of office.

I also think HR 2454 is a pretty good piece of
legislation. Too bad we may be too late.

zzzz, wake me when you have something important to say, instead of freaking out with regularity over nothing.

I don't know why they're complaining. Gramsci laid down the rules for what we marxo-fascist librofeminiazis would do once we came to power. I think we can say it was fair warning!
