Anyone watch the Tony Awards last night? I know I didn't and probably you didn't either. But it has been all over the news today. These leaches are part of the Progressive Elite that live off the underclass (you and me) and our stupid politicians, also part of the elite. I honestly have not listened to any "Late Night TV" since Jay Leno left or been to a Movie theater since Butch Cassidy.

One thing I have my Google Alerts set up for is the word "subsidies". Subsidies are not just for energy businesses, they are set up for almost ALL businesses in one form or another and one of the biggest is the film industry - - - - I can't figure out why, but there its is. 

After the Tony performance last night, I would like to see a few more subsidies dry up, like the ones for the film industry. Here again, if an industry can't stand on it's own, it should NOT stand at all. These guys make huge amounts on their works if they are successful and lose vast amounts if they make a dog. That should make them a little more careful if they don't have public money to work with. The same goes "for the arts." If you are good, you don't need my help, and if I would not like what you are doing, I should not have to pay for it.

The same thing goes for the way they spend energy money. Stand On Your Own!

Just a few from today:

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT (excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010  http://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?"  http://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” http://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
