    It seems that a good defining trait of the most idiotic manifestation of American liberalism is the knee-jerk tendency to advocate more taxes and/or more government regulations as the solution to any problem.

    Equally idiotic is this notion that simply gutting regulations and lowering taxes will solve everything as well.

    The Obama administration has paid plenty empty lip service it many things, while implementing policies that have had completely the opposite effect.

    Aside from the meaningless claims that Obama is so fond of making, what has his administration actually done to promote the construction of nuclear power plants?

    So why were there so many new regs under Bush?

    It's been proven time and time again that left to their own devices, corps (not really being human) can potentially destroy more than they create.

    A chemical company responsible for say 500 cases of cancer and/or birth defects has destroyed more than they can ever create. Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. The cancer/birth defects can not be blamed in a single person, but on the impersonal non-human entity that allowed a long series of bad immoral decisions, including covering up decades of bad behavior.

    Must be nothing, right? I mean you seem so utterly convinced that he's done nothing, obviously based on no research at all.

    So, for example:

    WASHINGTON—Touting nuclear energy as a critical component of the effort to confront climate change and meet the U.S.'s energy needs, President Barack Obama announced Tuesday roughly $8 billion in government-loan guarantees for Southern Co. to break ground on a new nuclear-power plant in Georgia.

    ...

    The U.S. Department of Energy has the authority for $18.5 billion in loan guarantees. The administration's fiscal-2011 budget request seeks to triple that amount to more than $54 billion.

    Just as easy.

    You think maybe we ought to use power more efficiently and practice conservation before we turn all the power off???

    Obvious stuff like that don't occur to millions of Americans, including Tigger. It's really quite amazing. They'll moan and whine about the government wasting our taxes, but suggest that they stop wasting energy and they can't comprehend it.

    "More than $8 billion in new federal loan guarantees to build two nuclear reactors in Georgia could be the first step toward a nuclear renaissance in the United States, three decades after the Three Mile Island nuclear accident halted all new reactor orders."

    What president in the past has provided more funding, and which GOP candidate is proposing to spend more in the future on nuclear power???

    And those darn conservatives think companies should be allowed to do whatever they want, whenever they want, including dumping toxic waste on playgrounds!

    I mean, as long as we're making hyperbolic generalizations and whatnot.
