11/10/11 Endangered Species
Why aren’t there more jobs being created. Let me give you my opinion, There are too many hoops to jump through. When the small business man pays his employees, he has to send in their tax, and his share of their social security and medicare tax, then he has to send in the federal unemployment tax, which comes out of his stash, then he gets to keep some if there is anything left.
A friend told me that he had twenty employees at one time, but now he has none and will never hire another. If you are out of a job, thank your meddling government, and unions. I heard a union leader say that the unions and the Democrats are going to get this country employed. Seems to me that government and unions are the cause of unemployment. If you have any doubt, take a good look at Detroit Michigan. The unions and Democrat party were in charge for many years, does that look like the utopia that Democrats and union bosses claim will appear if you will only support their policies.
I know a gentleman, that operates a company in Fort Worth, and he let his nine year old nephew operate a fork lift. One day a government meddler came by and the lad was on the forklift, he asked , how old are you, and who pays you, the answer was nine, and uncle John pays me. The high and mighty man from the government, found uncle John and gave him a refresher course on child labor laws and fined him. A friend told me that the regulations on his business are ridiculous, for instance, you must put your equipment in park set the parking brake and scotch the wheels, and lower all elevated components. All products must have special codes to identify it plus the name of the product. If I remember correctly the fine is $2000.00 for the first offence.
I operated a small business for several years. I had no problem with the inspections that were required, but when it got to the point where the college boys designed the work and inspected the project, and in case that there were problems, guess whose fault it was.
If I am going to be responsible for their incompetence they can design install and inspect the whole thing. I told the college boys that they could take over, and I found other things to do. I would have probably expanded my business, but there were too many head aches forty years ago, and now it is a hundred times worse.
Do you remember Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac, they are back in the news. The top executives are going to get approximately 13 million dollars in bonuses, while requesting another bail out. The government has taken over the student loans, just wait till this turkey comes home to roost. Aw don’t worry the tax payers have plenty of money to bail them out, if not we can print more or borrow from China.

Its as if you had a wonderful grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from far more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt. 3898

This means much less pollution per mile, even when dirty fuel is burned at the powerplant.*The easiest way to prove this is by looking at fuel cost. After all, you will wind up paying for fuel, no matter how it gets to you, right? First, let's look at gasoline. The typical driver puts about 15,000 miles per year on his car. This works out to 1250 miles per month.*If this driver's car gets 20 miles per gallon, this represents 62.5 gallons of gasoline. Using $ 3.20/gallon (about the price we paid this past summer, and I think it will get back there), our typical driver spends about $ 200 on gasoline every month.*An electric car uses kilowatt-hours (KWH) of electricity instead of gasoline. Typically our EV might get from 3 to 7 miles per KWH. So, for this example, we'll use 4 miles/KWH. In my city, there is a special EV electric rate of just 3 cents/KWH. But in other places, the electric rate could be 10 cents or higher per KWH. So let's use 6 cents.*Using these numbers, the same 1250 miles per month that cost our typical driver $ 200 for gasoline only costs $ 18.75 in electricity for our electric car. The electric fuel only costs about 10% of what gasoline does!*So, using this method, we can approximate that miles driven on electricity are worth 10 times the mileage of miles driven on gasoline, or we could also say it takes one-tenth the amount of fuel for an EV to trveal the same distance. (There are other ways to calculate this, but EV mileage is at least 5 times better, and from a money standpoint, as we have seen, up to 10 times better.)*Why is electric power so much cheaper than gasoline? There are two reasons. The first is that electric motors are far more efficient than gasoline engines, so EVs can drive much further on less fuel. The second reason is fuel transportation costs. The electric car fuels by wire (the electric grid is 95% efficient.) By contrast, your gas car requires a vast fuel transportation infrastructure that ships, pipes, trucks, and retails gasoline around the country (creating additional pollution in the process). The price of this infrastructure is built in to the price of gasoline.*This is also the reason electric cars pollute much, much less. No matter what is burned at the powerplant. But the story gets better and better all the time as clean energy sources are added to the electric grid.*SEE REFERENCES BELOW FOR THE NUMBERS I USED. 2559

Although I don't think that climate change in its present form will act quickly enough to cause a true threat to human civilization as a whole, I do think there is enough evidence to conclude that at least a good portion of climate change is due to human activity. Besides, burning fossil fuels does more than just change the greenhouse effect. It also pumps carcinogenic chemicals into the atmosphere that make up a threat to overall human health, and of course it also uses up fossil fuels, which are a rapidly diminishing resource that isn't going to last forever or even for more than a few decades at this rate.>I'm all in favor of protecting the environment and endangered species and I do see the potential harm that could possibly result if we don't. But I also don't think that heavy handed legislation is the answer.I think that if anything, the legislation is just being put in the wrong place. Rather than setting arbitrary limits on how much of specific gases a company can produce, or selling pollution credits', we should just put down one single imperative on the basis of economic rent. That is to say, for all the pollution that a company releases into the general environment, they have to pay the government the equivalent cost of the harm that pollution will cause (either by its effect on the public or by the cost of cleaning it up, whichever is more reasonable). And if a company wants to run its factories in other countries and then sell their products here, then they still have to pay the government the equivalent cost of cleaning up whatever of their pollution's harmful effects will enter the environment of this country. That way, the public is compensated for all the pollution pumped into their environment, and there is no loss of competition to foreign corporations.Unfortunately, like so much else, this requires a government that ISN'T corrupt to the core to start with 2056
