Government Flutters Its Wings - and Industries Nationwide Are Blown Away

A Less Kind, Less Gentle Butterfly
by Seton Motley, Contributing Author: A Leftist governmental principle is the Butterfly Effect: “A property of chaotic systems…by which small changes in initial conditions can lead to large-scale and unpredictable variation in the future state of the system.”

The Butterfly Effect is also known as Chaos Theory: “The field of study in mathematics that studies the behavior and condition of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions.”

In layman’s terms: “It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly’s wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world.”

Leftists use government – to create private sector chaos. Even the tiniest of new laws or regulations send huge shockwaves throughout the economy. Leftists increasingly flap government’s wings – to further amp up the private sector typhoon.

No administration has marshaled more winged creatures – than has the Barack Obama Administration. And don’t think butterflies – think dragons. The resulting, ramped up economic typhoon has been devastating. Sector after sector has been consumed by the storm.

For instance, pre-President Obama said “If someone wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can – it’s just that it’ll bankrupt them.” Mission being accomplished: “Obama’s policies have ‘helped spur the closing of dozens of coal plants across the country,’ according to Politico. The November 2015 report states: ‘More than one in five coal-related jobs have disappeared during Obama’s presidency, and several major U.S. coal mining companies have announced this year that they would or may soon seek bankruptcy protection.’”

And believe me – you do not want to be a farmer in the Age of Obama.

It was already awful four years ago. EPA Regulations Suffocating U.S. Agriculture: “The Environmental Protection Agency has set in motion a significant number of new regulations that will significantly change the face of agriculture. The coming changes threaten the continued operation of family farms and ranches….’EPA proposals are overwhelming to farmers and ranchers and are creating a cascade of costly requirements that are likely to drive individual farmers to the tipping point,’ (Carl Shaffer, president of the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau) said. ‘The overwhelming number of proposed regulations on the nation’s food system is unprecedented and promises profound effects on both the structure and competitiveness of all of agriculture.’”

Then there’s the EPA’s assault on farmers’ water: “You want to kneecap farmers? And make food exorbitantly more expensive? Turn farmers’ water into a weapon against them. ‘The issue is the EPA’s proposed changes to the Waters of the United States regulation. In March, the EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers proposed new rules that would expand the agency’s regulatory authority on streams and wetlands that feed into major rivers and lakes.’”

These dragon wings – and many, many more – are fully aflutter. And the results are as predictable as they are devastating.

Farm Income Falling for a Third Year: “The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service (USDA ERS)…forecasts another decline.…”

Farm Income Seen Falling 36% in 2015: “‘Overall, the data confirms the deteriorating fundamentals in the farm economy,’ J.P. Morgan analyst Ann Duignan said in a research note.”

Ag Sector Weakness Forecast To Continue Into 2016: “The expected drop in 2016 cash receipts is led by declines in nearly all major animal/product categories (including dairy, meat animals, and poultry/eggs), as well as vegetables and melons. Feed crop cash receipts are also expected to fall.”

Nigh universal government wings fluttering – nigh universal farm devastation.

Congress has finally noticed – and started holding numerous hearings. But the time for them to have acted – was years ago. When they could and should have reined in the Obama Administration – as it assembled and then deployed its dragon armada.

Hearings are merely for show. Congress better start actually doing something – before the Administration runs farmers into the ground and out of business.

We need food a whole lot more than we need Chaos Theory imposed by hyper-active government.
