‘I will not forgetat voting time!’
I have a suggestion. Since the county commissioners and the county council refuse to listen to the homeowners’ concerns about the wind farms invading their private property and well-being, why don’t we, the opponents, move the commissioners and the council members to the wind farms and let them experience their great tax scheme firsthand?
When political leaders deliberately evade the law and the genuine concerns of the ones who are paying their salaries, then I believe they need to be voted out or removed from office. All in favor, say, “Call the moving vans.”
Do taxpayers realize their tax money will be subsidizing these windmills and also the salaries of those who signed the contract, without public input? Doesn’t make sense to me ... and I will not forget at voting time! How about you?
The irony of this is European countries are scrapping their wind farms! Reason: Companies that constructed the windmills didn’t maintain them as they were contracted to do, therefore they deteriorated. Now they are in the process of removing them because they are a safety hazard, at a cost of thousands of dollars for each windmill. Economically, it was a disaster. That should tell you something!
Glass-Steagall Act should make return
Roughly 80 or so years ago, Congress passed the Banking Protection Act. Known also as the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, the act established the FDIC, aka the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
In 1999, the Glass-Steagall Act was repealed, all too eagerly in my opinion, by President Clinton through the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999. It has been said that timing is everything. This is interesting because, following the 1999 repeal, we experienced the infamous financial disaster.
This begs the question: Would a reversal of the Glass-Steagall repeal accomplish anything constructive? To this I say, how could it hurt?
