    So I guess this means Obamas lobbyists in the EPA will decide, which means Obamas contributors like GE will not have to go along with green taxes. It will be selective enforcement of green laws which proves the fear of carbon is a lie and its only purpose is to control your life more.

    Two things. The EPA has existed long before Obama was president. So have the lobbyists. Independent conversationalist groups have no grounds to affect governmental practices. That is why the vote was the way it was.

    The federal government has always been able to impose restrictions on state governments, no matter what the guise.

    No, they rule that it's a political issue, not a legal one. The reason why the federal government is destroying American industry by restricting the emissions of a harmless gas is the American electorate.

    This ruling simply reaffirms something we already knew: the Supreme Court realizes that there is no point in trying to take on the American electorate on something as broad as environmental policies. If they did, they would just get replaced by people who aren't even willing to defend the rights the Supreme Court does have the power to defend, like free speech, or a fair trial. But Americans are still the final arbiter on this, they could very easily put an end to it just by voting for a President who doesn't believe in AGW.

    Oh, and Obamacare will probably be treated the same way by the Supreme Court. At best, they'll strike down the one provision about forced insurance, but the assholes who caused both these messes by voting for Obama are the ones who are going to have to either fix it or we'll all suffer the consequences. The Supreme Court can't magically save the country from its own people's stupidity.

    Yes, but the ruling isn't about the EPA, it's about the EPA restricting emissions on something that is clearly not harmful to human health. That hasn't been around for a long time before Obama, it's the people he appointed who are doing this.

    Can I lock you in a room full of Carbon Dioxide for a day and see how healthy and refresed you get from that invigorating experience?

    Does that mean water is poison? If I lock you in a room full of water you will be dead in under 3 minutes. We better ban water it could kill us. Reminds me of a great bit from BS where they got people like you to sign a petition to ban water.

    You mean deprive me of Oxygen? No, you can't. You can feed me as much CO2 as you'd like, but you can't lock me in a room without Oxygen to do it.

    Speaking of being Oxygen deprived, are you really arguing that CO2 IS poisonous?
