In my opinion, Obama will place more emphasis on the global warming problem in due course. Even those lacking higher brain function will benefit.

'ninthman' is the old 'eighthman', who renamed himself, after I renamed him,'eighth grader'. He was proud to have moved up one grade level.
Whether 'eighth grader' advanced to the ninth grade or not, he still has no hi skule deegreee with upper class science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc.

There's plenty in it, and not just for Obama, but for the planet. Get back to me when the paranoia is treated.

As long as Americans don't mind paying to clean and rebuild after these storms with their tax subsidies, I say, lack of planning is good. We don't want to get in the way of BIG OIL and DIRTY COAL profits to multinational corporations. America is a colony again of the international oligarchs. We are all just serfs. We pay our taxes to the fascist (corporate fatcat Robber Baron owned) government that wants to destroy the vanishing Middle Class and reduce our livelihoods to a subsistence living.

Thanks to global warming there isn't much of a winter in Michigan anymore. This year EXPECT an EARLY Wisconsin spring... if you know what I mean. People are getting a mad as hell with ACORN.

The Battling Boys of Benghazi

We're the Battling Boys of Benghazi,
no fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell,
defending the country we loved so well.
.
It wasn't our job but we answered the call,
fought to the consulate, and scaled the wall.
We pulled twenty countrymen from the jaws of fate,
Led them to safety, and stood at the gate.
.
Just the two of us, and foes by the score,
but we stood fast to bar the door.
Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
So we fought and we fought, and we fought till we died.
.
But we gave our all for Uncle Sam,
but Barack Obama didn't give a damn.
Just two dead SEALs, who carried the load,
no thanks to us, we're just "bumps in the road."

Without "big oil" (I assume you mean an Arab controlled market) or "big coal" (which makes more than half of your electricity), you'll be generating power for your electric tinker-toy car by running on a treadmill.

PS. Drooling paranoia NEVER makes sense.

Hey, A-hole, forgive me for not wanting to pay my tax dollars to subsidize your profits and socialize your losses.

If you want to pretend there is a free market, go ahead, but the rest of us (99%) will not be playing along.

We want true COMPETITION. The RENEWABLE CLEAN ALTERNATIVES deserve the subsidizes given to BIG OIL and DIRTY COAL. Those WELFARE QUEENS must stop. BIG OIL and DIRTY COAL should also be required to contribute to a clean up fund for all the unpaid damages that those industries cause.

Please tell us. What is your alternative energy? How does it power a car? What does it cost for the equivalent amount of energy equal to one gallon of gas.

Will the workers who will produce this energy be paid more than they are now? Or less?
