    You seem so appauled by people being free to do pretty much what they want. You want them all under control, going and coming on the schedule of someone else, and using only government approved light bulbs.

    Thank you! I knew there was a word to describe my feelings towards mass transit!

    Hmm, I have been thinking about an order of fries all afternoon. I am having a pool party tomorrow, so have been busy getting it ready, and couldn't get away. I have two Fry-Daddys, but no fry oil, so.........Good thought.

    Obama to Brazil: we will buy your oil after giving you $2 billion to drill it - National Finance Examiner | Examiner.com
    President Obama in a speech down in Brazil on March 19th told local businessmen in the nation state that the US is looking forward to being their best customer in buying oil from their offshore drilling. This policy to purchase more foreign oil comes after we invested over $2 Billion with Brazil's state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil's Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro.
    “We want to help you with the technology and support to develop these oil reserves safely. And when you’re ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers. At a time when we’ve been reminded how easily instability in other parts of the world can affect the price of oil, the United States could not be happier with the potential for a new, stable source of energy.” - White House Press Briefing, March 19th

    you drive around using govt approved gasoline, the power plants that bring electricity to your house are govt approved, your trucks engine is designed to burn cleaner based on govt rules.....the food you eat is grown under govt rules.....need I go on?
    Fact is, if we let the corporate world run around without any rules, many of us would have short and brutal lives, just like serfs and peasants did a few hundred years ago, and that was done with approval of the church !!!

    Denmark huh? Think Germany. Everything you hypothesize is wrong. I want you free, no control, no light bulbs. Want to guess again? America will continue it's fall thanks to Capitalism, and the crazy idea we shouldn't do anything until the demand is in critical state, and we have to subsidize some corporation to patch it. We are so far behind the world they have to pump us sunlight.

    All the world's experts say we are approaching the end of cheap oil. What do you have to refute the world's experts, other than the unsubstantiated opinion you provided here?

    If we fall it will be because of socialism and a lack of the free market. Thank God, I think we woke up in time to stop it before it's too late.

    From the 2001 report from Bush's energy task force:

    "That Americans face long-term situations such as frequent sporadic shortages of energy, energy price

    volatility, and higher energy prices is not the fault of President Bush. The failure to fashion a workable

    energy policy rests at the feet of both Democrats and Republicans. Both major political parties allowed

    energy policy to drift despite its centrality to America’s domestic economy and to nation security. Energy

    policy was permitted to drift even though oil price spikes proceeded virtually every American recession

    since the late 1940s. The American people must know about this situation and be told as well that there

    are no easy or quick solutions to today’s energy problems.
    The president has to begin education the public

    about this reality and start building a broad base of popular support for the hard policy choices ahead."
