For Fathers Day I would like to hear the politicians discuss the developement of alternatives to foriegn oil.
At the price of coal to gasoline conversion, crude has a break point of approx.$35 per. barrel.

I agree with the coal posting, we should have gone that direction a decade ago. The technology exists to be free of these vultures but they are thicker than a hounds fleas.
