A New Energy Policy

It is hard to believe that in the sixty-plus days since the BP oilrig blew up that no one has coined the phrase Barack Petroleum. A while back, I posted apiece titled Big Fat Lie in which I postulated that the oil rig blow up was a government sponsored conspiracy. I claimed it was a save-face cover for POTUS to rescind his generous relinquishment of off shore drilling. There was no doubt; my theory was so far out it fell into the category of a Big Fat Lie.

As the oil continues to spew into the Gulf and the politics of it begins to unfold, I am leaning to another big fat lie theory. This one has the Administration sending Navy Seals to blow up the rig, but the rationale is different. This time, it is because POTUS wants to take over BP. Why is that? He wants to add an energy company to his growing stable of government controlled or owned companies: Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, AIG, Goldman Sachs, Student Loan Program, Chrysler, GM, and Health Care Insurance. What else does he want? Perhaps, he will add your soul and mine too.

 POTUS put the gun to BP’s head and extorted twenty billion dollars from them as payment toward the lost wages of the coastal residents. The clean-up costs are extra. A few more payments and he will have another trillion to deposit into a Swiss bank account for retirement. The company will have to give him stock to make a payment like that.

Is it the big fat lie syndrome, or is it I? Is it coincidence? Or, is it Rahm’s theory that every catastrophe becomes an opportunity to build a bigger government? 

Happy Birthday America

The Burmese python has been in the news recently. A pet kept by a Florida man escaped his cage and constricted their two year old daughter to death. Obviously, the creature thought the baby was prey to be taken. Why would anyone want to keep such an animal for a pet? There are many reasons. The snakes are graceful, and colorful. They move about with deliberation in a slithering manner. They eat voraciously and continue to grow larger throughout their lifetime. Their appetite never seems to be satisfied. After reading about them, it occurred to me that we have a very similar creature lurking amongst us. Here is my interpretation of  that creature.

Here is a proposal to think about. What if POTUS, and the US car companies partner up and do some real long term planning?  The goal would be to make our car companies viable in a world market.  This means building product with superior quality, reliability, safety, performance, economy, and looks. Going one step further, I recommend that a new goal be set for this team. Overtake all foreign competition by making US cars competitive, and desirable worldwide. The team would need to plan fifty years ahead.  The actual business of making, and selling cars would be the domain of the car companies. The government’s role will make  it easy for the US manufacturers (like giving them tax incentives, or wage equalizers). Government can also make global trade easier for us, but harder for the competition. There isn’t any reason why GM, Ford, and Chrysler cannot kick ass in the world market provided they compete on a level playing field.

Planning and cooperation of  this nature will never fly in this country. Especially not with the far Left in power. This plan requires cooperation between management, labor, and government. That is not an idea the Left can deal with easily because they are so much against a company actually making money for their investors. Instead our leaders push Fiat, an Italian company,  to save Chrysler. How in the hell will that save jobs for the USA? All it will do is bring in a lot of cheap ass eeni cars that will fall apart in a month. 

Does the idea sound crazy?  Well, it’s not a new one. It is exactly how Japan worked with their carmakers. Look what that tired old  idea produced for them. They started with a single economy model, and dumped the cars in the USA. Once established in the US market, they attacked their quality, and responded to customer needs. Slowly, they advanced model by model to overtake our strongest manufacturing companies. The Japanese government gave the car companies concessions knowing that in the long term it would be better for the people of Japan.

 I never thought the Japanese  would take the luxury car market as easily as they did. Now they are worming their way into the final bastion; the pick up truck arena. Meanwhile, our adversarial relationship between worker, and management continues to build at a fever pitch. All the while,  government doesn’t give a shit unless it is an election year.

Now that POTUS owns GM he can oust the old time UAW guys, and replace them with fresh labor from Altgeld Gardens.
