Algae!? Really, Mr. President, that’s your idea? That’s going to be what saves us, and allows us to fuel, quite literally a brand new vibrant and growing economy? Left and Right take turns alternately admonishing the other side of the political divide about the popper respect due to the office of the Presidency. I do feel that the office deserves respect, but I also believe that the person occupying that office should be the number one example of how that respect be paid. One of the truly beautiful things about some of our greatest Presidents is that they all knew that they were merely occupants of that office, and that they were put in charge of institutions which were truly greater than any one person, or even groups of people. So, my question is a simple one. At what point does a single man do such a disservice to that office that outright ridicule is not only allowed, but demanded of those who make up the governed?
Personally, for me anyhow, trying to sell Americans on using Algae as our main source of energy crosses that point. Before you pseudo scientific environmentalists start screaming about my being anti-science, I realize that research into the energy productive or any other possible uses of Algae would be a good thing, and that in the future, Algae may prove to be a super cool new toy. Suggesting that today, Algae is a viable alternative to our current providers of energy can best be described as one of the single dumbest statements of all time. The fact that our President said it is simply astounding. As of now, the debate of who is smart and who is dumb is officially over, and those who see Barack Obama as smart have to be either lying or high or completely brain dead.
I do not know if Barack Obama believes this idiocy or not. I do know that he has spent his entire term in office so far working feverishly to insure that our oil production and electricity production slows to a point where it is a hindrance to our economy rather than a fuel for it. Being the First President to ever be held in contempt of court for ending all oil Production in the Gulf is only the tip of the Ice berg. Little Barry has been using our increased percentage of oil coming from domestic sources a point in his reelection bid. What he leaves out of course is that the major reason for this has happened in spite of his policies and not as a result of them. If he were in fact an emperor as he wishes, that productivity for which he is spiking the football so to speak, known as the Bakken Formation, would be producing no oil at all. When President Obama took the Oath of Office in January of 2009, our nation ranked 4th in terms of Economic Freedom according to the Heritage Foundation. Three years later, and we have slipped to 10th on that list.
For years, Barack Obama has been traveling the country stating that he would like to see gas prices around $10 per gallon. His reason of course, that’s the price when those high speed rail systems start to make economic sense to a population that escaped that vastly inferior form of transportation over a hundred years ago. We had windmills in the 1600′s as well, and found a better form for delivering our energy needs. His goal of bankrupting the electricity industry of course will make windmills seem viable in the long run, only if we make the price for a kilowatt hour so expensive artificially, that using a system which only worked occasionally would be the best that we could hope for. Of course, openly stating that to the American People would be political suicide. After the Windmill and Solar Panel businesses suffered the inevitable high profile bankruptcies, even after receiving massive subsidization, what does an inherently dishonest President have left?
What he has left is Algae. He must think that a vast majority of Americans are the dumbest people on the planet. Exit questions for the environmentalists: What on Earth do you think will be the environmental impact of taking all of the Algae from the World’s Oceans and burning it? How much Algae do we need to burn to move a half ton automobile 10 miles? Wouldn’t the Carbon Gas created from burning Algae be the same as carbon created from burning other forms of oil? How can you keep a straight face when discussing anything having to do with our current President?
