What we need in Politics Today!

Take a look at the following 2 paragraphs. Read them, and then compare this ideology to the 3 baboons running for president!

"We, the members of the New Republican Party, believe that the preservation and enhancement of the values that strengthen and protect individual freedom, family life, communities and neighborhoods and the liberty of our beloved nation should be at the heart of any legislative or political program presented to the American people." We good so far? "Our task now is not to sell a philosophy, but to make the majority of Americans, who already share that philosophy, see that modern conservatism offers them a political home. ... The job is ours and the job must be done. If not by us, who? If not now, when? Our party must be the party of the individual. It must not sell out the individual to cater to the group. No greater challenge faces our society today than ensuring that each one of us can maintain his dignity and his identity in an increasingly complex, centralized society.

"Extreme taxation, excessive controls, oppressive government competition with business … frustrated minorities and forgotten Americans are not the products of free enterprise. They are the residue of centralized bureaucracy, of government by a self-anointed elite. Our party must be based on the kind of leadership that grows and takes its strength from the people. Any organization is in actuality only the lengthened shadow of its members. A political party is a mechanical structure created to further a cause. The cause, not the mechanism, brings and holds the members together. And our cause must be to rediscover, reassert and reapply America's spiritual heritage to our national affairs. Then with God's help we shall indeed be as a city upon a hill with the eyes of all people upon us."

So what do you think? Sound like a leader? That was from Ronald Reagan - American Patriot. Captured from

George Hoffer - Idiot! So called Economics Professor?

Now here is exactly the kind of fodder that makes me laugh so hard I fall out of my chair. This so called Economics Professor has made a silly and uneducated statement, and actually believes it.

"The SUV craze was a bubble and now it is bursting," said George Hoffer, an economics professor at Virginia Commonwealth University whose research focuses on the automotive industry. "It's an irrational vehicle. It'll never come back."

What an Idiot! I can out think this professor when I am half asleep. Obviously he has some agenda against large vehicles. A Truck or SUV is an irrational vehicle? Have you ever tried to pull a boat with a Prius, professor? How about take a load of trash to the dump in a VW Beetle or Honda Civic? Maybe take your camper into the mountains behind a Kia or Toyota (insert any car name here).

Trucks and SUVs are not irrational. Only the garbage you spew from your truly uneducated mouth, is irrational. Trucks, Cars, SUVs, all serve a purpose. To go off road, you need a truck. Ever hear of a FARM? Know what that is? They plant stuff in the ground, grow it, and take it to market in TRUCKS. Moron!

People prefer larger vehicles, for safety, room, better view of the road, more towing capacity, and better load hauling capacity. I own a Dodge Ram, used to own a Ford F-150, and would love to have a Ford Expedition. I like the space inside that allows me to buy something, and save the fee I would have to spend to have the item delivered. I am independent. I do for myself with a truck. I don't need anything from anyone. I don't rent U - Hauls, and I don't ask insane people like you to pay for my truck, I do it. I buy what I want, for my purposes, and no matter what brainwashing technique you use today, I will continue to buy and use what I want to, regardless of gas prices. It is idiots like you who lack basic understanding of supply and demand economics. Stop whining.

Thanks to environmental whackos like you, we lack refining capacity (our "green" laws have halted any new development of refineries). We have not drilled in any US territories for more than 30 years, professor. Matter of fact, while developing nations begin to drill off of our coast line, in International Waters, we sit idly by drinking our Starbucks coffee, and lamenting simpler times when we used oil lamps to read by, and a horse drawn buggy to gather daily food stuff.

Idiot! I would love to debate you in person on a national TV or radio show. Your ignorance would be far too easy to capitalize on, professor, you fool. Back in the 70's large vehicles were king. Our dependance on foreign oil made things tight, and that will happen again. large vehicles resurged, people preferred them. They only used small vehicles out of economic necessity. Eventually we will begin digging in US land for Oil, and when that happens, and we finally face facts, even larger trucks and cars will be the product of our folly. History always repeats itself, but you know that, you are a Professor!

Dvorak, Correct Again, Green Tech about Making Money!

John C. Dvorak has hit it right on the head once again. The push for Green Technologies is driven by profits, not some utopian idea to "save" the planet. Thanks god for Capitalism, and the drive it gives Americans to outperform any country on the planet. If not for Capitalism, we would have a third world economy too.

One of the interesting ironies of solar power is that many of the major petroleum companies are the biggest investors in solar. They concluded that they are energy companies, not oil companies, and they are using their profits from oil to invest in solar. BP has one of the finest solar portfolios. In India one of the big oil companies, Reliance, looks to be headed into the semiconductor business for this reason. Hey, these guys have made some serious money over the past few years, so they can afford these investments.
