So much going on… More announcements to come!

Hey SOTR Blog villagers. There’s been so much going on, that I thought it prudent to stop and simply share an update as it were.

I’ve moved this blog to a self hosted site and its undergone a redesign. Please resubscribe if you followed my blog from your own, as the site transfer has broken your link.

Everything else is the same! Enjoy this sneak peek of the site – it’s pretty right?

See you over there….

#FLOTUS is mad kids don’t like her lunch program #VIRALVideo

Apparently, according to Michelle Obama, it’s the Republicans fault that inner city kids are skipping their lunches at school.

Via IJReview:

At a fundraiser Monday, Michelle Obama slammed House Republicans who are pushing to grant waivers to schools that are losing money due to her “Let’s Move!” lunch program. The GOP also seeks to ease the law’s requirements when it is re-authorized next year. None of this sits well with the First Lady:

Michelle Obama told donors that Republicans in Congress were dedicated to obstructing not only her husband’s political ambitions but her own efforts to reduce child obesity.

“We all have a right to expect that our hard-earned taxpayer dollars won’t be spent on junk food for our kids,” she said pointing out that parents have a “right” to expect healthy meals in schools.

Michelle pointed out that “her” legislation and “her” national school lunch standards were drafted by “experts” using “sound science,” but that Republicans will continue their efforts to roll back “her” program anyway. And how does she feel about it?

Read the rest here.

No, no it isn’t the Republicans who are opposing your ridiculous lunch standards.  It’s the KIDS!!!  They hate what you are forcing them to eat, so they are skipping lunch.  How’s that for usurping your “authority” FLOTUS?

Peabody Energy’s fight against Global Energy Poverty

Yesterday, I attended the annual Peabody Energy Shareholder meeting to ask the CEO Gregory Boyce and Board of Directors what the company is doing to combat the Obama Administrations “war on coal”. As a supporter of clean affordable coal I was surprised to find that 40% of energy in the United States is derived from coal. The national news media acts as if wind and solar energy are our primary sources of energy production.

Here is the question that I asked:

I’m Stacy Washington of Project 21, a division of the National Center for Public Policy Research, a free-market think-tank, representing shareholder David Ridenour, who is president of our think-tank. Thank you for the opportunity to speak with you today.

Our question centers around the “war on coal” being waged by the Obama Administration and environmental organizations, and the critical need for this company, and this industry, to fight back by getting out the truth when lies are told.

First, we would like to know what this company is doing to get the truth about the importance of low-cost energy out to the American people and to correct the record when the news media, government officials and highly-politicized advocacy organizations make false statements, and what it plans to do in this area in the future.

Second, we would like you to give the U.S. energy industry across the board a grade, A through F, on how well it is defending itself in the court of public opinion with proactive programs to get out the truth.

Mr. Boyce gave a passionate response to both parts of our question, giving the energy industry in general a “very poor rating” in it’s defense of itself in the court of public opinion. He expressed a desire to better this situation. He then turned quickly to discussing the Advanced Energy for Life Campaign, highlighting that fully 40% of US Energy comes from coal and that
“in Missouri that percentage is a whopping 80% and we still have clean water, air and skies.”
After sharing more stats on global energy usage, Mr. Boyce spoke to the sad fact that many “climate” enthusiasts naively discounts the facts of life for millions of Americans. Every increase in energy costs means poorer Americans have to go without energy, that these Americans are already getting a check from the government to help them pay for energy and what amounts to a pittance to us (an increase of $15-20.00 a month) is catastrophic to them. Mr. Boyce is unreservedly passionate about Peabody Energy’s newest initiative which addresses the ingeniously termed issue of Energy Poverty.

Arm yourself with the facts. Find your voice and use it to counter act the abundance of spurious facts that abound in the media about coal fired electrical energy. Learn more about Energy Poverty and Peabody Energy’s message through their new initiative; the Advanced Energy for Life Campaign.
