There are times when I'd like to share something with you but my Voice in the Garden site does not seem the appropriate place, thus, this blog.

There are experiences, thoughts, views... and for anyone lurking/waiting to pounce (as has occurred on several occasions), please do not attempt to turn what I post into a political statement. This is NOT a political site, but IS about occurrences, reality, and personal opinion concerning what I see in the world around me and my family. There are many excellent writers whose works "speak" to me, and I shall include some of them. At times it may be
something I think you would enjoy or simply whatever ails you (me).

Consumers' Electric Bills To Spike

We were warned two years ago by the president that "... Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket." In the same interview, he also promised that anybody building a new coal-fired power plant to generate additional electricity would be "bankrupted" by his energy policy.

Consumers' electricity bills are estimated to jump 40 to 60 percent in the next few years due to the new environmental regulations put in place by the administration. Coal-fired plants currently produce about one-half of our nation's electricity, and the plan is to have them shuttered. Read the entire article here in the Chicago Tribune...

I wonder when my husband's pension check is going to spike 40%. It just keeps getting cut, again and again. Pretty soon, NO ONE will be left but the rich. Who will do the work for them? Well, it's not a problem I'll have to worry about...
