Dear Readers: While the Guru of Green Jobs, President Obama, gave his historic “jobs” speech last night, millions of Californian’s could not listen to it. They had no power, due to an unprecedented power outage impacting San Diego Country and several surrounding areas. Interestingly, the word “energy” was missing from Obama’s speech.
The MUT family weathered the energy crisis just fine. I managed to get the Young Prince to fencing practice, as we were headed in the opposite direction of home-bound motorists. The kids had a grand time with a special practice session in the dark. Happily, by the time we left the session, the horrendous traffic had dissipated, so returning home was no problem. My beloved husband Horemheb managed to get home from a job just as we pulled in the drive, so we got out the camp equipment and the battery power radio and waited for the power to come back on. Needless to say, the Young Prince was thrilled that school was cancelled for today.
The most special moment? The Young Prince and I spent the evening reading. My son’s eyes popped wide open when I told him reading by lantern light was how people normally spent the evenings before the advent of electricity. He also learned to appreciate the importance of radio as well!
After my family, the next person I was concerned about was my good friend — Beers with Demo. I know how much he was looking forward to the NFL opening game. Horemheb and I also remarked about the millions of dollars our sports bars were losing because of the power outage.
Fortunately, WC Varores had his own generator. That man knows how to plan! 🙂
I plan on listening to Tammy Bruce’s Mystery Science Theater 3000 podcast. Additionally, it seems that Professor Jacobson has distilled Obama’s campaign-oriented rhetoric down to its essence: Been there, done that.
Here are some items related to Obama’s energy policies:
*Obama Policies about to Shut Down Coal Plants
* FBI Raids Solyndra (the Green Jobs company that got tons of Stimulus money, whose owner is a big contributor to Obama and who has visited the White House often in the past couple of years. Crony capitalism!).
President of the San Diego Tea Party – SoCal Tax Revolt Coalition, Dawn Wildman, writes:
I just got word from Sacramento that Nathan Fletcher is looking to go “over the fence” for the tax extension. Evidently he thinks we are better served by more taxes in San Diego. Please get the word out to call him and go to his district offices and let him know we are watching and this is no way to begin his run for Mayor of San Diego! Keep in mind Mr. Fletcher also voted for SB 48 (which would ould amend the Education Code to include social sciences instruction on the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people!)
