In the meantime I donít see what the big deal is about drilling short term for natural gas until we can switch to alternative energy sources. Oil companies store the stuff in huge amounts which means it could be released for use within a year. It burns cleaner then oil, and we have a large supply of it.
With new technology being developed every day we have much more cleaner, safer ways of pulling the stuff out. Natural gas itself is real cheap, I donít mind paying a little bit more in the future because were not giving our money to the middle east. Instead of giving them billions of our dollars every year we can use that money to fix the economy as well as the environment. The only thing standing in our way is Nancy Pelosi who thinks sheís the new Captain Planet

EDIT: Oop, you said natural gas, not oil.  Let me edit.

Yeah, that T. Boone Pickens guy wants to use our natural gas for transportation.  But apparently the key to doing that is to stop using it for everything else.  I know he has a big stake in wind power, but if he wants to make a bunch of profits off of clean energy, then more power to him.  As for how we'd actually go about using the natural gas for transportation, that's a whole nother story.  I don't know what would be involved to run vehicles off of it.


Anyway, on a funnier note, Conan sent Triumph to the RNC.  I got quite a few laughs from it, and I normally don't find Triumph quite so funny..!

Part 2


And more news on Sarah Palin's avoidance of all media, and the campaign's bullshit excuses for it.  Translation: "She doesn't know her ass from a hole in the ground, and we can't let you ask her any questions that would make you realize that."

The word Flip Flop has been thrown around a lot lately. Remember when there was that big issue about cows farts putting out more methane gas then cars or whatever the heck it was? The same people telling us cows are bad, are now telling us to eat less meat. One day a week, then carry on from there. Now if Cows are killing the planet, wouldn't eating them be saving the world?  Roll Eyes

McCain trying to cover up Palin's earmarks.  I wonder what he'll say when confronted about how like 7 of his 8 advisors are lobbyists, yet part of his platform is that he's going to stop lobbyists and special interests from controlling congress.

Welp, they're already trying to neuter the debates, to give a newbie like Palin a better chance of not coming off as a complete inexperienced moron.  I guess Putin, Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong-il, Chavez, etc etc, would be equally polite and easy on her if she ever became in charge, you know.

Unless of course you were to talk to them without pre conditions, and refer to Iran as just a small country that's not a threat. That's to bad their neutering the debates, I want them to give Biden every available chance to open his mouth and say something stupid like "Raising taxes is the patriotic thing to do.It's neighborly" 

A list of Obamas earmarks. That's a lot of millions to add up there. I dont know if the $15 million to Trinity United are included in that list. I wouldn't be surprised if you added up all these numbers theyd come out to be equal or more then Palins. None of these guys can really throw stones at eachother when it comes to pork spending.

The difference being, 9000 people to something like 20,000.  Sure they've both spent money, but it goes more to HOW they spend it as opposed to how much.  With so many fewer people, Palin should have spent a lot less, especially for how rural her constituancy is.

Palin had a hard time showing up at the office, only having done so 15% of the time apparently.

Maybe McCain did pick a good running mate for him, because he has a bad attendance record too.

Here's some fact checking about the debate

The newest SNL skit of Tina Fey as Palin.

In case some kind of tomfoolery goes down that prevents you from being able to vote, check out provisional ballots.  Might not make any difference, but if they tried to "purge" me for some bullshit reason, I'd cast a provisional one anyway.  To cause them extra trouble if nothing else~!

A kind of unexpected interview of Al Gore by Kevin Rose (previously on Tech TV, now creator of Digg.com, etc).  Even covers a Manbearpig and Futurama question.

This is Chuck Shumer. He doesn't think Americans care what goes into the stimulus bill.
