Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Go green, get screwed, by Jay Fitzgerald. Boston Herald [1]:

Cape Wind, which wants to build 130 wind turbines off the coast of Cape Cod, and National Grid announced yesterday that they’ve reached an agreement to start charging customers 20.7 cents per kilowatt hour in 2013 – more than double the current rate of electricity from conventional power plants and land-based wind farms.

It seems the late Senator Oldsmobile was right to oppose this boondagle albeit for the wrong reasons.   Like the poor Bay State saps have nothing better to do with their hard earned money they pay double price for electric power.   The wind may be free, but wind power sure is not.

Dumbo gets bitch slapped.  Arizona Governor Jan Brewer strikes back at Dim Won’s b/k/a Barack Obama joke about Arizona, video:

RINO Bob Bennet bitched slapped out of Senate, by Brock Vergakis,  Associated Press [3]:

SALT LAKE CITY – Republican U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett [4] of Utah has lost his bid to serve a fourth term after failing to advance past the GOP state convention.

[…]

Bennett was targeted by tea party [4] activists and other groups for supporting a massive bailout of the financial industry, securing earmarks for his state and for co-sponsoring a bipartisan bill to mandate health insurance coverage.

If you can’t handle the sh*t, then don’t do the sh*t, from Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit [5]:

KATIE ALLISON GRANJU: “I am the mother of a drug addict.” [6] I’ve been following Katie’s struggles for a while, and she’s borne up nobly.  Personally, I think true addicts are born, not made, and that while parents deal with the consequences, it’s really all about genetics and what receptors you have in your brain.  Possibly I would be a hopeless thionite [7] addict, if anybody ever discovered thionite.  If so, it wouldn’t be my parents’ fault.  At any rate, wish Katie well, as no parent should have to deal with what she’s dealing with.

People make choices and they are responsible for the choices they make.
