    If Barry wants to govern in a bipartisan way, this is a solid place to start. Seems like a better way to go rather than taxing the crap out of Americans . . . . again.

    It's one of the reasons I have been siding with the Republicans so much lately.

    Good stuff.

    Republicans need some new ideas and policies. This isn't 1980 anymore. Pushing nuclear energy is a good start. There's no reason why nuclear shouldn't be a large part of our energy supplies.

    Hell .... even some of the environuts are starting to see the light. We can only hope more come about soon, it's cheap, it's safer and cleaner than coal, it would actually make us independent for a change, and with a bit of exploration may be the ultimate power source. We are too far behind in advancements as it is, we need this.

    We don't need nuclear power. There is plenty of clean energy out there.

    We need to develop carbon nanotubes. They will make solar panels 90% efficient.

    As Buckminster Fuller said, "There isn't an energy crisis, there is only a crisis of ignorance."

    We need to develop Warp Speed too, so the Vulcans will come and save us from ourselves.

    There's a lot of things we can do, with our IMAGINATIONS!

    But, the rest of us choose to live in reality.

    My understanding, which seems to be confirmed in the following article is that Obama likes 'wind generated' idea. Seems might be wrong on a couple fronts. Link to other article at site:
