… about bourgeois Bostonians, who wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat, terrified at the prospect that there might be people out there having fun.Â That, in a nutshell, is northeastern leftism, and for the better part of a century that’s been the predominate philosophy in Washington D.C.
I suppose that’s why the Environmental Protection Agency thinks it’s time to crack down on boaters:
A proposal from the Environmental Protection Agency has boating organizations up in arms. Those organizations are now asking individual boaters for help in letting the EPA know the idea of allowing introduction of a new fuel that has not been independently tested in marine engines isn’t a good one. […]
That was proposed in March after Growth Energy, a pro-ethanol group collected fifty four other groups and petitioned the EPA to allow what is a fifty-percent bump in ethanol and reclassify E-10 fuel as E-15.
The boating industry is highly cyclical. When economic times get tough, people stop buying boats, and start selling them.Â It’s devastating to the boating industry.Â This is only going to make things worse.Â Hope and change, folks.Â Hope and change.Â This Congress and Administration aren’t about jobs.Â It’s about making middle class folks pay for our sins.Â A permanently reduced standard of living will be our penance.
