From what growing medium are these blossoms emerging?

Robert Lipscomb

The good news about their obsessions with abortion and people of color is that the GOP has not noticed that Obama revamped our energy system and overhauled greenhouse gas emissions regulations.

Power plant emissions will be reduced through tighter regulations. The tax credits for energy efficient upgrades to buildings and alternative energy sources combined with regulations for more energy efficient appliances takes it further.

Car efficiencies are to be nearly doubled by 2025. We are now a net exporter of oil who will be the world's largest exporter by 2025.

Even now, we get less than 10% of our oil from the Middle East. I assume that alters the focus of our foreign policy in that area.

And seriously, no one noticed.

"Even now, we get less than 10% of our oil from the Middle East. I assume that alters the focus of our foreign policy in that area."

You would think so, Robert, in a rational world. But our Middle East policy is driven as much by religious, and therefore, irrational, beliefs as it is by realpolitik. So as long as we have politicians who think they can make Jesus come back by promulgating Armageddon, we'll be stuck over there.
