Can’t You Just Feel the Moonshine

With the 2008 North Carolina election race heating up—you read that year correctly—Attorney General Roy Cooper fired a litigo-politico salvo: a lawsuit against the Tennessee Valley Authority. The dusty ol’ TVA from a depression era gone by has been making some smoke, literally. And, air currents being what they are, some of that smoke has up and gone to Carolina.

The TVA may be a relic and a polluter to boot, but the NC suit is nonetheless hack-handed theft masquerading as environmental protection. The TVA, according to the suit, violates North Carolina law. Well, whoop-dee-doo! This issue was settled in 1787. The United States of America “violates” the laws of the states in conformance with Article VI of the Constitution.

If one says, “Constitution schmonstitution,” the moneygrab angle remains. The TVA operates primarily in seven states and indirectly through all 50. In short, this litigation attempts to legislate the other states—the citizens of those states—by taking their money.

The EPA can handle this one; James and AG Watch can get back to the sun and moon shine.
