Alternative Fuels

Here we go again: the present presidential nominees are talking about alternative fuels.

You won't hear McCain, because he doesn't want to insult his "friends" in the Democratic party, and certainly not Obama, because he's not into the truth, that George W. Bush asked Congress to pass legislation investing in hydrogen fuel cells, solar power, etc.

The Democrats--then in the majority--blocked such talk; once in the majority, they were determined to not allow Bush any single success, the country be damned.

This is why we need to encourage third-parties. The two-party system is not about making America great, it's about getting elected.

p.s. Oil is not just for gasoline. We make plastics--like, you know, to save babies lives, for cars, for shoes, etc., from it. This is why everything made in China stinks pretty badly--like petroleum.

Obama: The Audacity of Hype

The Audacity of Hype with which Sen. Barack Obama presents himself is amazing.

Time and again he's allowed to use numbers and mention policies that just don't add up.

Go to http://wire.factcheck.org/ or http://www.factcheck.org/ to see how his campaign is wrong.

(This objective site lists how McCain is wrong too.)

I'm watching the debate and here's Obama talking like he's JFK--let's double the size of the Peace Corps and get off oil in 10 years, likening it to going to the moon, even mentioning JFK by name.

He's the first AfricAnglimerican to get the nomination from a major party. It's a shame he's the first; bringing in race--talking about: "Oh, and by the way, he's black" and such in a speech warning his followers of what others might say.

Obama says 95% of Americans will not be affected by his tax raises. The number's much lower than that--see FactCheck.org for details. Don't take my word for it. See a source that lists the sources.

Iraq does not have a 79 billion dollar surplus, Obama! Way off!

Puro Palin

How do y'all think Gov. Palin did in the debate? It was Sen. Biden's debate to lose.

How is it that these legislators, McCain included, are talking about their plans for this and plans for that as if they haven't been in a position to propose such budgetary issues--Congress (not the president) being charged with passing a budget?

In 2000 and 2001, Pres. Bush (as the pres.-elect and thereafter) proposed hydrogen fuel cell technology for vehicles. The Democrats in Congress, first in the minority, then as the majority, refused to allow discussion on the topic until very recently. The Democratic leadership has been so adamant about making Bush look bad, not giving him any success whatsoever, the American people be damned. They don't care, Pelosi and Reid, about America. They want Bush to look bad and are dying to have a Democrat in office to make him look good. In the meantime, they have been anti-Bush for the sake of being anti-Bush and not for the sake of arguing the topic and letting the American people and our representatives decide.
