Plug into any power outlet with ELVIIS smart EV-charging system

A low-hanging fruit idea. Prototype. Not a good idea. A waste of electronic bits.

Fwd: Algae?

John --


Is he serious? 

President Barack Obama actually told the American people last Thursday that our energy future lies not in opening up our vast untapped oil and gas reserves, but in "investing" in algae as an alternative fuel. 

Sound familiar?  Remember Obama's plan to "invest" our tax dollars in Solyndra, Beacon Power, Evergreen Solar, etc., etc.?

We can no more trust our economy's transportation needs to algae than we could trust government subsidized solar and wind to generate our electricity.

We may find a constructive use for ocean slime someday, but that's no way to move America out of recession today.

Are you ready to scale down your life? Drive a smaller vehicle? Pay higher energy bills for air conditioning in the summer and heat during the winter?

If you're not ready, the government thinks you should be.

In the name of environmental protection, the Obama administration is peddling a scaled-down version of the American dream that I don't recognize and I don't think you do either.

While Americans work to pay their bills and improve their lives, our government is intentionally raising the price of energy to make living more difficult for us.

Will you join me and stand up to the EPA and tell them to leave the American dream alone?

In one example, the EPA is working on the so-called MACT rule so they can shut down several of the 100 coal plants that produce 57 percent of our nation's energy.

They're also raising taxes on oil companies that produce the gasoline that we consume and use to transport goods. And you know the story about the Keystone pipeline. Our government is shutting down mining and energy transportation routes that quickly distribute cheap energy throughout our country.

The EPA is able to increase prices on unsuspecting Americans because they do it in the name of protecting the environment.

But you and I know the truth is far different.

The rest of America needs to know that the EPA is full of liberal activists whose first interest is in social engineering, not protecting the environment.

To a liberal elitist, our so-called 'easy living' is a crime against the environment and they're forcing us to pay more for this lifestyle in an effort to change the way we live.

They're even trying to tell us what type of lightbulbs we can install in our homes!

As energy prices skyrocket, something Obama promised would happen under his watch, we can look to Europe to see the future of our country if we don't put a stop to the EPA's radical social engineering right now.

Despite Europe's largest power provider, EDF, meeting the demand of the recent European cold chill, hundreds of Europeans died from the cold because they couldn't afford the energy to heat their homes. We see the same thing happen in Europe during summer heatwaves.

This deadly phenomenon is not far from happening in America if the EPA has their way!

It's simple math: for every increased cent we spend on energy, that's another dent in our household spending power, which is the engine of our economy and our path to prosperity.

Enough is enough! Our government wasn't created so it could punish us when we don't live a lifestyle approved by the liberal elites.

Will you help me spread this message and expose the EPA regulators who are making the costs of living more expensive with a donation of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or even $2,500 by following this link right now?

Your most generous contribution to CFACT will immediately help to halt the EPA's social engineering and protect America's high quality of living.

Join our campaign to reform the EPA right now.

Since 1985, we've been spreading the message that the EPA has gone too far. But the EPA gets away with their radical social engineering because Americans are uninformed about their true design on the economy.

Protecting the environment doesn't mean we must wreck our economy, give up our living standards, drive small cars, live in small houses, or pay higher energy bills. If Americans knew the truth about the EPA, then they will be forced to change.

Support our campaign to reform the EPA with an immediate donation of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or even $2,500 by following this link right now and help us redirect the EPA's resources to focus on true environmental protection, not social engineering.

Or would you rather trust Obama to solve our problems through algae?

Time is of the essence. Reform must happen now. We can't afford to wait as liberal elites raise energy prices and chip away at our incomes and lifestyle day-after-day.

For nature and people too,

Craig Rucker
