    Pretty much. And we'll have to do the same thing. Anyone who calls for more nuclear power is calling for more taxpayer loans. But remember, it is the job of the government to provide infrastructure. I'd rather have the government do that in a joint agreement with private industry who runs it rather than the government alone running it.

    If green energy were practical, private industry would already be buying into it. The fact tha they're not is a very telling commentary.

    Bankrupt the country and turn them into socialist??? This sounds like a plot for a Political thriller or maybe a Tom Clancy/John Grisham novel.

    Since you figured out the hidden agenda, Scarecrow, you're the hero of the story. They'll be after you like Will Smith in Enemy of the State. But who's going to be you're love interest? Sarah Palin? Does she have the microfilm with the details of the Dem's plan on it? You've got to get her to safely to Fox News HQ before the rouge FBI agents find you.

    Intriguing but why don't you just wait them out until mid-terms. Introduce new candidates, true fiscal conservatives with a better plan and start taking back power. Wouldn't that be easier? Let the power swing back, if and when the Dem policies fail.

    Of course, in that scenario, you don't get to bed Sarah Palin, but it is more realistic. Right Agent Akhbar?

    Why chase him if very few people believe him, and he doesn't have enough proof to make others believe him? Not that any amount of proof will convince some people.

    I hope you're right, but that still doesn't make it ok.

    In this regard obvious Child is right mainly because the design of our power grid.

    Power generation from massive plants requires government intervention.
    If we switched to DC from AC it wouldn't have to be that way but making such a switch would be a mind boggling over haul.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
