HEY!...All you law and order people better get it through your heads that Commissar Barackus IS THE FRIGGIN" LAW! law. No matter that this move was against the law just like so many other laws he breaks every day he is like Putin, neither one of them needs a stinkin' law. Now, let's wait and see how many more victims will be kidnapped, held for ransom or to force release of terrorists and criminals. Here's another incident you may not like, so stuff it....the "progressives" are deliriously happy.
"WASHINGTON Local officials in New Mexico warn a move by the Obama administration to designate nearly a half-million acres as a national monument could open up a crime corridor making it easier for illegal immigrants to cross the border and for drug cartels to operate undetected.
President Obama made the announcement Wednesday afternoon, setting aside 498,815 acres of land as the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument. Unlike national parks which must be approved by Congress, the president has the power to designate national monuments.
"I'm not finished," Obama said during Wednesday's ceremony. The New Mexico national monument is the second one he's designated this year."
AND...here are some more "benefits" from the magnanimity of Barackus Maximus.
"Americans deserve to have an accurate picture of the costs and benefits associated with the administration's plans to reduce carbon dioxide emissions through unprecedented and aggressive EPA regulations," said Karen Harbert, president and CEO of the Energy Institute. "Our analysis shows that Americans will pay significantly more for electricity, see slower economic growth and fewer jobs, and have less disposable income, while a slight reduction in carbon emissions will be overwhelmed by global increases."
The analysis found that EPA's potential new carbon regulations would:
*-Lower U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by $51 billion on average every year through 2030
*Lead to 224,000 fewer U.S. jobs on average every year through 2030
*Force U.S. consumers to pay $289 billion more for electricity through 2030
*Lower total disposable income for U.S. households by $586 billion through 2030
