    I truly believe that all of those lawyers make laws so they can reform them. That would explain why reform is one of Congress’ favorite words as well as one of the scariest words in the dictionary. If I was reforming a thesaurus the word reform would be a synonym for incremental.

    Reforming the United Nations began with the Connally Reservation BEFORE THE U.N. OPENED FOR BUSINESS. The best thing about reforming the United Nations since 1945 is that everybody with a brain in working order knows it cannot be reformed:


    For more than a decade, UN peacekeeping forces have faced an avalanche of allegations of sexual exploitation of women and children in areas under their care, only to face no consequences for their crimes. That problem appears to be growing worse as the years roll on, while the member states of the UN wring their hands in public but do little to stop it. Now it appears that the blue helmets have graduated from sex trafficking to murder in the Central African Republic. The Washington Post reports that aid workers have found the bodies of a dozen detainees that had been in the hands of UN troops:

    Aid workers have unearthed the remains of 12 people who they say were murdered by international peacekeepers in the Central African Republic in 2014.​

    Congress designed the Affordable Care Act to reform the healthcare industry. Now, the same crooks and parasites who did it cry “Reform” in order to IMPROVE the ACA. If I was reforming a thesaurus the word reform would be an antonym for improve.

    Every politician who mentions Social Security begins with “Reform or go broke.” —— which always means reduce the benefits that were paid for by years of labor.

    Prison reform was a moneymaker for movie studios in the earliest days of talking pictures. Releasing every violent criminal is the ultimate reform.

    Every time the credit industry is reformed interest rates go up. Whenever the Federal Reserve is reformed interest rates go down.

    Reforming the U.S. military means women in combat, and turning it into a meals-on-wheels program in peace and war.

    And let us not forget reforming immigration. Amnesty for illegal aliens is reform to Democrats. Open-borders is reform to the United Nations. No borders —— forever —— will reform open-borders.

    Over 40,000 laws on the books reformed the Second Amendment. More reform is needed according to civic-minded criminals.

    Common Core was first sold as an education reform. The folks making money from Common Core never explain exactly what they reformed, or why 2 +2 = 4 needed reforming.

    Finally, I wake up in a cold sweat whenever I dream about Congress reforming Congress, the welfare state, the presidency, federal bureaucracies or the courts.

    The short answer to the question is TAX DOLLAR PARASITES:

    Who does want wind turbines?

    Wind turbine manufacturers, the American Wind Energy Association, and the crony capitalists who benefit from the tax breaks and subsidies — which Robert Bryce, reports total more than $176 billion “given to the biggest players in U.S. wind industry.” He states that the growth in wind energy capacity has “not been fueled by consumer demand, but by billions of dollars’ worth of taxpayer money.” To address those who defend rent-seeking wind turbines and squawk about the favorable tax treatment the oil and gas sector gets, Bryce points out: “on an energy equivalent basis, wind energy’s subsidy is nearly three times the current market prices of natural gas.” Even billionaire Warren Buffett acknowledged that the only reason his companies are in the wind business is “We get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms.”​

    NOTE: The entire United Nations environmental movement was created to first educate parasites in colleges and universities with tax dollars, then create jobs to feed them with tax dollars. The poor living on welfare state programs are thrown scraps, while ruling class parasites help themselves to as much as they want.
    And here comes that ugly word:

    But tweaks, such as reforming PURPA, can take place and a new president could totally change the energy emphasis — which would be good, because, it seems, no one really wants wind turbines.​

    Not in my neighborhood becomes a common response.

    Neither Congress nor the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act, nor any federal bureaucracy, will ever drive a single parasite away from the public trough let alone do it to an entire industry.
