Lasee Tilts At Windmills

Senator Frank Lasee (R-On the ledge), wannabe US Senator and wannabe Don Quixote, has taken up the art of tilting at windmills, claiming that they are a health hazard.

This is the same guy who has supported nuclear power plants and sending our money and jobs to Canada for electricity that would have to be brought in on high-voltage transmission lines, both of which have been shown to actually have health hazards to people and animals.

But maybe he's on to something.  Isn't it wind power that ruined the Danish economy and made the Danish people go extinct? Oops, guess not.

I know what you're thinking, but it's the wrong question.  Instead of asking yourself what makes this guy think he has even a remote chance at being in the US Senate, you should be asking is how the heck does he keep getting elected to the state senate.

  1. I don't believe that a windmill can cause ear infections or the common cold. I think the family quoted in the article is mixing up having children and having the windmills put in nearby. Many children don't sleep through the night at a young age, many children get the common cold (that is why it is called "common" not "unusual cold") and many children suffer from ear infections. Those are problems that come with childhood, not wind energy.
