open a nuclear test facility on your wyoming ranch.

What shall we do

Is it ok to vote for a law you think is immoral,
or vote against a law you think is moral?
For that matter, is it ok to vote for a law that is moral?
Isn't it redundant?

Jacob have I loved

Esau have I hated

Was Jesus gay?

Did He have homosexual feelings?

Long term debt

no longer makes sense,
since tomorrow you will be poorer.

I pledge allegiance

to the heavens,
and to the earth on which I stand
and to the poorest, to the weakest
to liberty, to justice, for all.

$700 Billion Bailout

To prevent corporate bankruptcy?
Didn't we just "fix" the bankruptcy laws?
How about preventing bankruptcy for the poor?

Is solar energy clean?

Not quite.
If absorbing the suns rays is what warms the earth, and it is,
then absorbing more rays will heat the earth more. :-)
Maybe we should cover the Sahara with aluminum foil
just to be sure.

Non-proliferation, 1954 style, Vietnam

Hearts and Minds[@4:41]
House of War p.549 note 151
George Bidault, French Foreign Minister, reports that Dulles
He took me aside, in the corner of a window at the Quai d'Orsay,
et il me dit "And if we were to give to you two atom bombs?"

And later, the Russians gave the Cubans 100.
Also Black Ops, Geraghty, p5.

$700 billion per year

seems to be the number to cite as what we pay terrorists for oil.
We use 20+ million barrels per day.
Yes, 20 mbbl/day * 350 days * $100/bbl = $700 billion.
But 11 mbbl/day comes from North America
(CAN=2, US=8, MEX=1)
In 2007, oil imports cost $342 billion.

About 5 quads of natural gas are used for electricity.
This is 20% of the 25 quadrillion BTUs of oil imported, not 38%.

Hang Victory

Let's focus on honor.
