Environmental activists met in the** oil producing**, socialist country of Venezuela as part of a United Nations-backed event to increase civil engagement in the lead up to a major climate conference.

EPA is setting up our states to fail – our local economies to fail – to deliver on the president’s promise that electricity prices will skyrocket – all for immeasurable so-called climate benefits,” Louisiana Republican Sen.

Are there cronyists out there? Yes. How did they get there? Because of government corruption, favors, subsidies, bailouts, regulations, etc. How do we stop the cronyists? By doing away with regulations, limiting the ability of the government to manage the economy, and doing away with all forms of state-initiated corporate backscratching.

They are the ones who most frequently flout safety and cleanliness for the sake of production. Without supply and demand, the only incentive in a command economy is output regardless of quality.

Follow the money … that’s all I got to say about these folks.
