1) Look, folks, I know that Sean Hannity doesn't like the President. He's absolutely made that clear. But, really, don't you think that maybe, JUST MAYBE, he could take a tiny fraction of that bile and throw a little of it over at BP? I mean, they're the ones who created the mess; took all of those frigging the short-cuts that started the leak, mismanaged the clean-up (at least initially), etc.. Does EVERYTHING have to be an Obama slam-fest? Apparently, huh?.....2) Believe me, people. I want clean energy as much as anybody. I certainly want to get off of fossil fuels as much as anybody (this, and not have to deal with countries that hate us). But, I also have to tell you. Charles Krauthammer (a person who usually irritates the hell out of me) said something the other day that really got me to thinking. He said that, " You cannot legislate scientific advancements." I fear, folks, that he may in fact be right. I mean, sure, you can subsidize one invention over another and do it in that manner. But then you've got the government picking winners and losers - something that they're not necessarily all that good at. Ethanol, anyone?.....3) Is there anything, folks, that ISN'T a double-edged sword. I mean, seriously, just take a look at some of these proposed "solutions" to the BP oil disaster. Many people (myself, included) have been advocating a 60-day moratorium on deep water oil drilling in the Gulf - a pause, so to speak, just so we can figure out how to proceed here. But now I've been hearing that such a pause just might end up ruining the economy down there (so dependent the Gulf's economy is on oil production) - even more that it already is BECAUSE of the spill. It's like, we just can't seem to frigging win for losing these days. God give STRENGTH to President Obama. PLEASE!!
