KNIGHT: Many to benefit from president’s ruling, but not us

I prefer being an optimist and thinking that things will turn out OK - even while watching pipelines being killed, gasoline prices rising and Republican presidential hopefuls providing enough sound bites to fill 1,000 Obama campaign ads in November.

Actually, we’ve been getting used to watching horrors for three years as the Obama administration has manfully undertaken the task of turning America into a Constitution-free Third World country in need of international adult guidance.

What’s next - banning shipping on the Great Lakes to save a rare species of lichen that grows on the underside of littered Dr Pepper cans? Closing the nation’s airports to let muskrats and prairie dogs cross the runways in peace? How about blowing up Hoover Dam to “liberate” the Colorado River?

One thing’s for sure. Energy is not going to get cheaper anytime soon. That must put a smile on the faces of leaders in certain places where women can’t drive, Jews are demonized and converts to Christianity are beheaded.
