We did cheapo little rib ends on the new Weber grill tonight. Get the grill hot, then indirect heat on medium for about 90 minutes, turning them every 20 and start laying on the sauce after an hour.

Too yumm for words. And not a char spot, a burn, or a flare up to be found.

I was so happy I was going to share a picture and a rub recipe ... and then I flipped on the news, and saw that Otardo is set to do his Et tu Brute and deliver a killing blow to the American Economy tomorrow. And that ... that just sucked the fun right out of everything.

Obama to announce emissions limit on power plants

The Obama administration is set to announce a rule Monday to limit carbon emissions in thousands of fossil-fuel burning plants across the country, a cornerstone of President Obama’s climate-change agenda and his first-term promise to reduce such emissions by 17 percent by 2020.

The Environmental Protection Agency will ask existing plants to cut pollution by 30 percent by 2030, according to people familiar with the proposal who shared the details with The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, since they have not been officially released.

The draft rule, which sidesteps Congress, will go into effect in June 2016, following a one-year comment period. States will then be responsible for executing the rule with some flexibility.

They are expected to be allowed to require power plants to make changes such as switching from coal to natural gas or enact other programs to reduce demand for electricity and produce more energy from renewable sources.

They also can set up pollution-trading markets as some states already have done to offer more flexibility in how plants cut emissions.

If a state refuses to create a plan, the EPA can make its own.

Without waiting to see what Obama proposes, governors in Kansas, Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia have already signed laws directing their environmental agencies to develop their own carbon-emission plans. Similar measures recently passed in Missouri and are pending in the Louisiana and Ohio legislatures.

On Saturday, Obama tried to bolster public support for the new rule by arguing that carbon-dioxide emissions are a nation health crisis—beyond hurting the economy and causing global warming.

“We don’t have to choose between the health of our economy and the health of our children,” Obama said in his weekly address. “As president and as a parent, I refuse to condemn our children to a planet that’s beyond fixing.”

The rule attempts to reduce greenhouse gases that Obama and supporters blame for global warming.

Among the plants that have to comply will be hundreds of coal-burning plants, which has resulted in strong opposition from the energy industry, big business and congressional Democrats and Republicans, who argue Obama’s green-energy agenda is tantamount to a “War on Coal.”

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce argues that the rule will kill jobs and close power plants across the country.

And notice how this little terrorist sets the timer on his bomb so that it doesn’t go off until he’s out of DC. So even this, one of his signature bits of legislation, won’t be his responsibility when it backfires.

  2. Federal Departments CAN NOT MAKE LAW - it’s in the Constitution.

    Like the Bible - the Constitution is either God given - or conceived and written by the most brilliant men who ever lived - wrote these two most important documents in life.

    Anything after the 10th Amendment - needs to be removed - the 14th should have been a Law in Congress and it is used now to allow the ‘concept’ of anchor babies (a footnote in a 1982 Supreme Court decision, also NOT a Law) to destroy America.

    Of course all of this goes back to the starting point - career, corrupt Politicians and the corrupt corporations, unions and anti-American ‘groups’ - making sure that they get elected. And of course a Media that has thrown in with the criminals and Politicians. Oops I repeated myself.

  3. Any law against Co2 is a prelude to mass murder.
