"... there is no weakness without its admirer, so be not discomfited because your ways displease some, for they will not fail to be pleasing to others; nor let their approval of them make you vain, for still others will condemn them." Gracian #101
Britain’s biggest coal fired power plant is being forced by EU green standards and British government fines to convert to burning wood chips. But that’s just the beginning of what Idiots International is foisting on the Brits. The wood for the chips will come from the US where 4,600 square miles have been designated to be logged for this power plant. There the trees will have to be chipped and shipped thousands of miles across an ocean into special storage facilities built to house the ‘biomass’ until used. And the gory story goes on, a story which should not be read after a big meal while standing on a good carpet.
Next we move to Alabama where its Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a plaintiff suing the original manufacturer of a drug that has been off patent for years, and then taken by said plaintiff under a secondary manufacturer’s label. The secondary manufacturer is by law required to print verbatim the original manufacturer’s FDA vetted information on the drug, information which the plaintiff claims was misleading to the point of causing him harm. The broad application of such “innovator liability” will have a devastating effect on America’s ability to remain the leader in bringing new and innovative products and services to market. Again, a barf bad at the ready is recommended before reading this piece.
Exit question: These examples of our achieved state of obvious social madness have their champions claiming convoluted contortions of social justice being served. Who are these constituencies, and what kind of ideologies could be used to support such government diktats?
