Editorial blows wind in wrong direction

The Mirror editorial (“Solar, wind fuels cost taxpayers”) in the Tuesday, Jan. 5 edition really hit the mark – if you intended to display your ignorance of how American Democracy works as dictated by the Constitution of the United States.

The president cannot make laws. He cannot create any protective action or attacks, for, or against, anything and that includes science and industry.

He can influence, agree with, or disagree, sign or not sign legislation created and passed by Congress.

You say “Obama has been eager to engage in solar socialism.” You are implying he creates it.

You are wrong. Go back to high school, sit in class and, this time, listen to the Civics teacher and read your Civics book.
